At last week’s check in I talked about cheat days. I tried this week to keep my “cheats” to a minimum and stuck to small treats here and there as opposed to a whole day or meal off. I also started writing down when and what I eat to track my intake better. I’m not exactly counting calories, just trying to see if there is a pattern to my hunger and eating habits. It seems to be working pretty well. I also get some mental help from it, like I know if I eat this I’ll have to write it down. That gauges how bad I really want it. Besides messing up my alarm for Monday’s workout, I felt like I had a pretty good week! We are getting close to wrapping up this challenge officially… August 1 is the day we go back for our follow up DXA scans. I’m anxious to see the results on paper!

I messed up my alarm and missed CrossFit so I hit up the gym on Monday night to get some kind of work out in. I used my GNC ProSculpt pre-workout… love that stuff!
Also, I’m loving the Expresso bike they have at the gym. It’s like a video game that is also a workout!

Congratulations on your progress – you’re doing great! 10 pounds in 7 weeks is great!! Good luck with this week!
Thanks Heather!! I’m hoping this week is gonna be great too!
You’ve got this!
I used to eat pb&j toast before every run, but now I’m trying salads for breakfast!
So far, so good!
Wow, salads for breakfast? I love me some PB&J! During my marathon training I had peanut butter toast before all my long runs.
Congrats!!! You’re doing so great!!! I like to eat a waffle with peanut butter before my long runs! 🙂
