Last week

Sunday Oatmeal

Last week was better than the week before.  I was bad about procrastinating on my homework, but other than that, an all-around okay week.

I still wanted coffee, but I drank less tea, so I'm doing well with that.

I skipped one workout, because Flo came to town, and I really didn't feel like practicing flip-turns with all that crampiness going on.  I was back in the saddle the next day.

I got through all of my runs, and only had to drop my running pace from 6.0 down to 5.5 to do it.  Yesterday I was running for 8 minutes at a time!  This week I'm doing the same runs at 6.0, and I'm hoping they'll feel pretty good too.

My food was mostly on par with where I wanted to be.  There were a couple of moments where I had a few bites of something I wasn't supposed to, but overall it went great.

My weight is down 3.5 pounds from where I started out the month.  Even more important, is people are starting to comment that I am looking healthier and more fit.  Not the main goal of this month's detox, but a fabulous side benefit.  I'm hoping that I continue to see results from eating right and regular exercise.

Sunday I wanted lots of diet coke and candy.  It was odd.  I took a nap, and that seemed to help with my cravings.  I think I might have just been tired and looking for a fix.

How was your last week?  Is there anything you're looking forward to most this week?


  1. Sounds like you are right on track! This week, I've got to get BACK on track! With so many things.... dieting, exercising, and living on a budget. Sigh. I wish we lived in a world where calories didn't count, exercises didn't hurt, and money was no object. :) Haha.

    1. I'm with you! Wish everything was free:/

  2. I started out really well...{and went back to "normal" by the end of the week - grrr!} I started the week out with a "don't eat that!" mentality, but it just felt like I was starving. I only "worked out" twice last week:( But I discovered Zumba on our gaming console thingy and that was fun!
    I feel good most of the time, but the photos say something way different, you know? Like, "DUDE! You really need to lose weight!"

  3. You are rockin' it out ma'am! 3.5lbs is great! Knowing that other people can see a difference is a really good boost.


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
