Good morning, friends!
Many apologies for the lack of posts last week- it was a crazy busy week at work that involved a lot of late nights and loooong days. And this weekend was a blur- event for work on Saturday and volunteering with the Marine Corps Marathon yesterday.
But I've got a lot of free time this week so expect some exciting recaps from Runner's World Half and Festival, Marine Corps Marathon, and a new "Stress Fracture Diary" post. I know you're excited :-)
SUCKED this week. I mean, really sucked.
I finally got the ok from the doc to start biking and swimming. So I biked. Once. On Wednesday.
But I did get a good five miles in. And there were no issues with my foot afterward so that's a good thing.
I'm putting this on the internet for all to see- I will workout at least FIVE times this upcoming week- no excuses.
|More biking is in my future :-)|
This was a wonky week. But I think I made some really good choices- I was able to get to the grocery store on Wednesday so I had healthy options on me at all times throughout my long days at work and traveling this weekend.
My bravo moment for the week was on Saturday. At work, I helped to organize a tailgating event for my department. This involved serving over 200 people with hot dogs and chips. I stared at that food for over three hours on Saturday and didn't eat a single thing! I brought yogurt, KIND bars, and fruit and chose to eat that instead of tailgate food. This is HUGE accomplishment for me :-)

MAJOR MILESTONE ALERT! I hit 40 pounds lost last week!
150.2 as of 10/22/14 weigh-in
-1.8 since last week
-40.2 since January 2013
-51.8 since HW (Highest Weight)
This milestone has motivated me even more to reach my ultimate goal weight. I know I can do it. :-) And I'm working hard to reach 50 pounds lost to get another charm to add to my Weight Watchers key chain. What can I say, I'm motivated by bling!
Have a great week! Go be awesome!
