RFSC wk 9 and GFCTC wk 7 update

Hello All,  Sorry this is a day late.  I was out of town all weekend.

Last week: 205.6
This week: 204
Loss: 1.6

I was sick all week so I didn't get my runs in, but I walked around my parents house a lot this weekend.  A lot of  my extended family on my moms side got together and had a campout at my moms.  It was fun, but I did eat a lot more than I normally eat this weekend.  I will have to be mindful of that this week and work harder to get my exercise in.  The challenges are both in their final week and I want to end strong.  I hope everyone had a great long weekend and good luck in this final week of the challenge.

RFSC Wk 8 and GFCTC wk 6 Update

Hello everyone,  It was another successful week.  I got in 3 runs this last week.  I still haven't managed to get in the weight training or any other type of exercise, but at least I'm keeping up on the running.

Last week: 206.6
This week: 205.6
Loss this week: 1 pound

I'm not sure how this week will go.  I thought I might be getting sick yesterday and today it has increased and I am now SICK.  I hope it is short lived and over by this weekend. We are going out of town this weekend and I really want to feel good.

We had my kids birthday party this weekend.  It was a luau theme and it turned out really well.  My kids 2 & 4 had a great time and I think everyone who came had a great time too.  Maybe one day I'll actually get some pictures up.

My head hurts so that is all I can say today.  Have a great week.

RFSC Wk 7 and GFCTC wk 5 Update

Hello Everyone, I hope all you moms out there had a great Mothers day.  I know I did.  We celebrated on Saturday because my husband had to work Sunday.  We bought me a dress, sweater, shirt and shoes for the new job.  We had lunch and went to see the Hunger Games too.  Yesterday was Church and relaxing.

My new job has kept me busy this last week and not allowed me to snack regularly like I have been in the few weeks prior to the new job.  I believe that is the reason I actually LOST weight this week.  Don't get me wrong, it's not like I was over snacking, but I was having a nut bar everyday which can pack on the calories pretty quickly.

Last Weight: 208.2
Current Weight: 206.6
Loss: 1.6

So, Wahoo, I actually lost this week.  Finally, past that slump.  I hope to continue downward now.  I ate a little to freely over the weekend, but I'm back on track now.

I ran/walked another 5k over the weekend.  The time was just over 43 minutes.  My next 5k will be the Shrinking Jeans Run the Hood virtual 5k on 5/28 and then we will do the Hero Rush 5k obstacle course on 6/30.  I really need to start working on my strength training for the obstacle course.  I am really lacking in upper body strength.

RFSC wk 6 and GFCTC wk 4 update

Nothing to report on the weight loss front this week either.  I am actually up .2 pounds for the week. I am tired of this plateau for the last 3 weeks.  I am 9 pounds away from "one"derland and it sucks to be in a plateau. Needless to say, my goals for next week are the same....LOSE WEIGHT.

I got in two 30 min run/walks this week as well as a 5k on Sunday. I ran/walked the OC Wahoo 5k.  It ended up being less than 3.1 miles.  According to my husbands gps is was closer to being 2.7 miles which we completed in 38:33.  I am going to get up and do my run/walk tomorrow.

I added some dairy back into my food plan this weekend.  It was nice to be able to have more food options.

I started my new job today.  I didn't do anything really, just a lot of listening and watching.  I will sit down and really start learning stuff tomorrow.  They didn't even have my computer set up, and probably won't until Wednesday.  Weird!

I hope everyone else is doing better with their weight loss than I am.  Good luck this week.  Make it count!
