My mileage was complete crap (I can always tell when I am having an off running week because I don't post as much on the blog) but I did manage to stick it out with the push-up and plank challenges. I have never made it this far with a challenge before so I am quite impressed with myself. And yesterday I did a flippin' TWO MINUTE PLANK! TWO WHOLE MINUTES! I wish I had thought to measure myself before these challenges but oh well. Maybe I can measure myself today and go from there.
I got my eating under control about halfway through the week. I went to a baby shower on Sunday and was quite impressed with myself. They had fresh green beans and I loaded up half my plate with those and used the other half for a touch of pasta and a chicken breast. I was all excited about the green beans only when I tasted them they were SALTY. Inedible, even. So bummed.
Here were last week's Mini-Goals:
Monday Mini Goals week of 11/10/14
1. Walk/run twenty-five miles. Nope. Got 12 miles of walking in.
3. Do ONE strength workout. Nope. I know I should count the planks and push-ups but I can also do better than this.
Monday Mini Goals week of 11/17/14
1. Walk/run twenty miles.
2. Complete yet another week of planks and push-ups.
3. No fast food.
Doable. Completely doable.
I had a moment, too, not a good one. We had family photos done back in the middle of October and finally got a sneak peak at them. Sadly, my first thought was just how fat I looked. I know I should focus on the boys and how wonderful they are and I really did after a moment of wallowing. It's so hard to be documented in the MIDDLE of a weight loss journey. I know I weigh less than I did at the start of the year. And I will weigh less next year. I just sometimes wish I was at the perfect weight RIGHT NOW.
