Wow...I have been sooooooooo busy!  It's been a whirlwind 2 weeks and I have so much to write but tonight I'm gonna make it quick.

10 Pounds in 10 Weeks - Weeks 5 & 6

Weight Loss the past 2 weeks:

-2.0 LB

I keep taking off the pounds...thank you My Fitness Pal!  And I joined Courtney's Diet Bet and this girl hates losing money so I will be down 4% by March 4!

Here were my goals for Week 5 (Jan 28 - Feb 3)
  • Drink lots and lots of water
  • No eating after 7 pm at night
  • Run Tuesday (3 miles), Thursday (3 miles), Saturday (11 miles)
  • Track my calories in My Fitness Pal (merewoody) and stay between 1400-1500 calories
  • Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Monday & Wednesday
  • Add a fresh fruit or veggie to every meal
  • No Carb Day on Tuesday and Thursday

I think I've finally found my magic calorie number and as long as I stay within that I'm pretty consistently losing 1 pound a week.  My Net Calories have between 1400-1500 calories per day and it's actually pretty manageable.

I have done some splurging - this past weekend was my birthday and we did go out to eat and get dessert :)


I have been running 3 to 4 days a week and doing a Sweatshop Class at work on Wednesdays.

So what's in store for the next few weeks?

I am going to keep on tracking with My Fitness Pal and continue to do No Carb Days on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

And my Half Marathon is February 24th!!!!  I am super excited and so ready :)


In other news...have you guys seen that cruise ship that caught fire?  Well that just happens to be the one that I am supposed to board with my hubby and two other couples in 23 Days.  I feel horrible for all the people that are stuck onboard right now, I can't imagine the feeling of being stuck out at sea in those conditions.  But we are crossing our fingers that the boat will be fixed quickly so we can go on vacation.

Okay bloggy blog friends - I am heading to bed.  Good night!
