Okay, so my first goal is to reach 191 pounds, I am at 196, down .2 pounds from last week, so that is definitely progress. My second goal is to keep on track with my tracking, that didn't go so well last week, but I am back to it now. My third goal was about my cardio, and I ended up having 2 rest days, with the kids off school on Friday, I just let it slide, should have found a way to get them involved! Inches and BMI are a monthly measurement. No progress on the bike riding, I need to find a bike first! The screens have still taken way too much of my time, and I got very little done around the house.
As for the week in other regards, it has been a tough one. I did a lot of emotional eating, and when I finally stopped doing that, the anxiety I had been stuffing with food, it reared it's ugly head. I have been feeling similar to the way I did as a teenager when I battled bulimia and anorexia. I am working through it, and taking support from my running buddy, so I know it will be okay, I just want it down so I can look back.

My biggest goal for June is to reach 191 pounds, which is 5.2 pounds loss for the month. I also want to keep on track with my tracking to attain this goal. I intend to have 1 rest day a week, Saturday, and the other days my cardio will be getting myself to the school and back many times a day for the kids and my shifts. I will do this either biking or walking. I would like to lose an inch off each of these areas: Bust, Waist, Hips, Chest and increase my H20 to 45%. My BMI should go down to 31.9 with the weight loss as well. I want to have my youngest child learn how to ride a bike, and start taking family bike rides together. I want to spend less time on screens, and get some work done around the house.
Lots of goals! We'll see at the end of June how it goes!

So, today is Day 1 again, and with that in mind, I took my measurements, so did my running buddy with hers. We took some before pictures too. I am not prepared to share the photos for right now, but I will post my measurements.
Body Fat % 44.6
WTH ratio .9
RHR 50 as of 3 weeks ago or so
My wonderful husband and I had a long talk last night about living a better lifestyle on a whole as a family. We agree that we need to be better prepared for meals, get active together, and cut down on our snacking habits. Today, I bought us some produce and we have recently invested in 1/2 a cow and a pig in our freezer. We are going to work together as a team to improve our health and help insure a fit and happy future for our whole family.

So, I took a break from running again, about 2 1/2 weeks off. I was feeling very rundown, sore throat, constantly tired, and I had lost the joy in running again. So, reevaluation complete, I am going to cut back on the running so I can continue to do it. Looking back at the first time I ran, I was about the weight I am right now, and I was running 1 day a week. The rest of the time I walked, and it was enough for my body. As I take off the weight I have regained, I will be able to run more, but I think until I get down to about 170, I am going to keep it at 1 day a week, and alternate my other cardio days between biking, swimming and rollerblading. We will see how it goes. Also, I am going to track my food again, but I am not going to aim for a calorie range. The first week I tracked my food, I droppped three pounds. The second week I tracked, I tried to get my calories under 2000, and I know that is enough for me physically, but mentally I felt restricted, and I rebelled. I am just going to go with my gut, literally and see where it takes me, as long as I keep tracking and keep losing. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Today was a 2 mile run, got it done in 29:04, all running. I had a hard time with this one, moved very slow, but I kept running the entire time. My check in yesterday was good, I am down 3.2 pounds from last Tuesday, that was an awesome feeling. I will be keeping my intake in my calorie range this week, and tracking my deficit also. Last night I slept with my heart rate monitor on, and took my resting heart rate this morning, it was 55! I was pleased, it is a marker of my cardio progress that has nothing to do with the scale. Yippee!
