This is week 5 of the Losing It challenge.  Head over to Giving Up On Perfect to see how everyone is doing!

Goals:

  • Track: so far, so good
  • Run: yeah, baby!  I have run 4 times since last Friday… a total of 8 miles!  I’m gearing up to do a 3mi run some time this weekend.
  • Drink: yup!

So, this week sticking to my goals has been something that I have been able to do.  I’m not sure that I’m seeing the results on the scale… but we’ll see.  Earlier this week, I weighed in at WW and lost 1lb.  That brings my total weight loss percentage for this challenge to 3.8% (if I did my math correctly).

My college roommate posted one of my favorite weight loss sayings in her FB status today.  This is what she wrote:

“They say ‘nothing tastes as good as skinny feels’.  I don’t know, I’ve been skinny and I’ve eaten great food…they’re both pretty awesome.”

What do you think?  Does “nothing taste as good as being skinny feels”?

This is week 3 of the Losing It challenge.  Head over to Giving Up On Perfect to see how everyone is doing!

Goals:

  • Track: ummm… about 60%
  • Run: ran once-then got sick
  • Drink: doing ok with this one

This week I lost 1.1% of my total body weight (1.6lbs).  Not bad but I need to kick it up a notch if I want to reach my goal weight before vacation.  I have 10 pounds to go!

I weigh in at WW earlier in the week so I have already begun looking ahead toward my next weigh in.  This week I decided that I was going to mix things up and try my South Beach/WW combo diet that has been successful for me in the past when I have wanted to kick it up a notch.  So this week I have been eating eggs (local duck eggs from What Did She Do Today -thank you, again!) for breakfast, cheese sticks, and lots of salads with chicken or tuna on them.  I am hopeful that this will prove to be a banner weigh in next week!

In other news, the whole family has been sick so that has made it hard to exercise.  I’m hoping that once we get over these colds that the husband and I can spend some quality time at the gym together.
