Busy Busy Busy

The entire point of this journey isn't necessarily to lose weight, but rather to be healthier. However, weight loss is an important step in becoming healthier for me. Pete has designated Saturday to be out official weigh-in day, so we got up this morning and fired up the Wii. I didn't feel any lighter, so I went in pretty pessimistic, but I lost 2.5 pounds this week! It's proof that what I am doing is working! Yay! We also completed run 2 of 3 in Week 2 of 9 of our C25K running program. The running is getting a little (very very little) easier each time. More importantly, I am recovering faster each time and not spending the next hour gasping for breath!
I finally retired my old Nike sneakers...they were pretty sad. :( On the plus side, I got my some really nice Adidas running shoes. Sure, they are flashy. They make me feel fast!

One day at a time is all I can do. The food part isn't as hard as I thought it would be. I'm eating more often during the day and eating smaller and eating smarter. Pete even took me out for Mexican food Thursday! We ended up splitting an entree and it was plenty of food for the two of us AND I stayed within my calorie goal for the day. Food is definitely my weak point, but if I can manage to have my favorite foods- in moderation- I think I will stay sane. Now I need to figure out how to get Pete some pizza without breaking the caloric bank. :)


  1. I had to do the first week of C25K for about 6 weeks before I could move on, so you're doing fantastic!

    Pizza: Thin or hand-tossed (no deep-dish), veggies and chicken instead of pepperoni and sausage. Watch portion sizes and enjoy.

    I'm so proud of you guys! Hang in there! You're inspiring me to be good, too.


  2. Thanks Sea! I have been surprised that I was able to move onto week 2 and week 3 as scheduled, but it is motivating! We managed to do pizza this week. We started with salad, so that helped cut down on the number of slices and made it more manageable.
