Weekly Wednesday Weigh In - Week 8

A little bit of an injury right now...So that has kind of slowed me down for the past 3 days.  My left hip flexor is acting up from all the running, so I've had to go a little easier than I like.  Plus I had company on the weekend and I kind of cheated on my food.  Oops!  But here we go....

Starting Weight: 169 lbs.
Last Week's Weight: 162 lbs.
Current Weight: 161 lbs.
Goal Weight: 145 lbs.
Ideal Goal: 125 lbs
 
1. Reiterate my goal and where I stand in reference to this goal.
My goal is to regain my healthy lifestyle. It's not so much about the weight as it is about how I feel. But the weight is the best indicator I have currently. My #1 goal before my next transfer is to complete a Try a Tri by September.

2.  Discuss what I am doing to Achieve these Goals.
Hitting it at the gym!  I am running as much as I can.  And every other workout I am doing some muscle work as well.  I am definitely noticing changes in my body even if the weight drop isn't significant.  I have signed up for a 5km run on April 21, and we are soon going to make the decision and sign me up for the Try a Tri or the duathalon.  I really need to get some time in the pool.  If I can't figure out a new schedule to include pool time then I am going to have to drop down to the duathalon.
I'm also limiting the eating out.  Only 2x allowed per week.  And no more junk food in the house!  Do you hear that JD?  NO MORE ICE CREAM!!!!!

Thursday - Ran 3.5 miles, and then a 1/2 an hour of muscle training.
Friday - Ran 3.5 miles
Sunday - Outside Run with running group ran 5 km's
Tuesday - Ran 3.5 miles and then a 1/2 an hour of muscle training
Wednesday - Elliptical 1/2 hour.  (disappointing day)

Activities and Goals for this Week
Thursday - 3.5 mile Run - 1/2 hour muscle training - 20 minutes on StairMaster
Friday - 3.5 mile run
Saturday - 30 minutes elliptical - 1/2 hour muscle training - some running.
Sunday - 5km outdoor run
Tuesday - 3.5 mile run - 1/2 hour muscle training
Wednesday - ???  Working  ????

3.  Post a reasonably healthy recipe, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out, a photo update on my weight loss, or anything else I'd like to share.
I actually did take a picture of myself but it is so embarrassing I can not post it!  :(
But I am proud to say that I am now on my 3rd notch on my belt!  And when I started running 2 months ago I was on the 1st hole!  So my weight might not be moving fast but my shape is definitely changing.  I am starting back at work next week.  I'm really nervous about how this is going to throw a massive curve ball into all the work I've been doing.  I'll just have to try to do what I can and stay positive. 

Thinking of all my WWW sisters and hoping you are all digging deep to find that inner strength to keep trying!  "If your tired of starting over, then stop quitting!"

Much Love!
