I put on a pair of jeans, and wore a t-shirt that i havn't worn in a long time. I felt good to be wearing them. Today I bought a new pair of shoes, sketchers with memory foam, and went for my 5 k -- 48:30 -- fastest yet!! And NO shin splints! I think thats the most I ran since I first started but had to stop cuz of the splints. Now if I could just follow my JC 100% I will be doing good!!

Yesterday was weigh day, both at home and at JC. After the disappointment last week i KNEW I was going to meet my first goal of 10 lb loss this week. What I didn't know was just how much came off! Not only did I lose my first 10 lb but I also met AND BEAT my birthday weight goal by 1 lb, 9 days early!! Needless to say I was pretty happy yesterday morning. Later in the afternoon, I had my weigh in with JC and she decided to take my measurements. I really didn't think anything of it, but I have lost 13 inches over all!! I have lost a foot of myself from my body! I was excited!! I couldn't even tell I had shrunk that much. My next goal is only 11 lb away,,, that will be my half way point. I am trying to decide between 2 rewards. My rewards are based on my "to do" list that I made at the beginning of the year. I decided that instead of just doing them i would use some as rewards. I am so happy, and so grateful to JC for helping with my weigh loss, and I cant wait to meet my next goal! 7 weeks (or less) to mid-way point!
I also just want to thank everyone who encourages me and lifts me up when I need it. By commenting on my page, or on a blog, whether it's a response to something, or a sporadic word I really do appreciate it. Some days you have no idea just how much I needed to hear it, or just to know that someone is on my side, and knows how I'm feeling. I try to visit blogs and pages, but dont always have the time, and I do all my tracking on my phone, I'm not usually actually at my laptop. I just want you all to know I do appreciate you and one of my new mini goals is to visit and comment more often.

Today was such a beautiful day I thought i would go out to walk. I changed my Nike app to Km instead of miles, hit start, and walked. My playlist was awesome and the walk was great! I didnt measure out the route first, I just walked and when I got home, I was 5.03Km and I did it in 54:13, AND burned almost 600 calories!! It was such a great walk! I just love walking outside much more then inside.
Yesterday I did some strength work on my x-box kinect. Decided twice a week was going to be for strength and 3 cardio, which will either be my treadclimber, a walk outside or a work out video. Of course, if its nice out, i'll be walking outside, trying to beat my time from the previous walk. Wont be able to do anything tomorrow though, I have a work thing and wont be home till about 9.
I am so glad that I havnt let this funk ive been in get in the way of my lifestyle changes. I still ate my JC meals (although i have cheated a bit which showed as a no loss last week), and Ive still been working out. I guess thats a big step for me, since I usually let my funks get in the way and end up quitting.
I did a mid-week weigh in, just for curiosity, and I am down almost 3 lbs since Friday so that is encouraging. Hopefully it'll stay off for my Friday weigh in. Last week should have been my first 10 lbs but i was off. I KNOW i'll get it this week, and maybe a little more. My first goal (the 10 lbs) reward was to finally get my hair cut. It hasnt been done in over a year and really needed it, so I decided to make it a reward. Next goal is my half way point, not sure what that reward is going to be though. Have 15 more lbs to go so I have time to think about it. Maybe I'll treat myself to a manicure?? We'll see. I'm just really glad that I have stuck to everything this long, and am still plugging away at it!

Well, I almost made it a full month of logging in, or at least spinning the wheel. I think it was Sunday where I forgot cuz I apparently didnt log anything all day. I was actually looking forward to seeing a month long streak... a day short.
Last week I only got a work out in once, and that was Monday. Between appointments and errands, I just didnt have time. Ok, so i probably did, but wasnt up to it at 7:00 in the evening when Im in bed by 9:00 (I am up at 5:00 AM). Sunday was a messed up day, as I decided to have a couple (or more) beverages while I did my housework, and ended up having cookies.... ugh!!!
This past week I have been getting more work outs in. Its been getting nice again so I've been walking outside. Feels good to get out again. Had s'mores at work today too (we made them with the kids). I at least stopped myself after 3. Craved more, mainly the chocolate, but stopped myself.
Tomorrow is the end of this week and weigh in day. Not sure I'll be too happy but then I'm not to surprised, after the past week and a half. Hopefully I'll get back on track and be as into it as I was in the beginning.
