This past week has been okay for me in the healthy choices department.
Well, I take that back. I think I did well in portion control but maybe lacked in the nutritional department. J was out of town for work and I ate a lot of quick-and-easy foods which in my book is often the same thing as little-to-no-veggies foods.
I got in some low-impact exercise via neighborhood walks, but that's about it.
I felt good walking in to my meeting today. I wasn't sure if I would be up or down but I didn't feel any bigger.
I ended up being down a nice amount and it felt good. I was hoping to hit 50 for my meetings (they only count the weight you've lost from the first time you step on a scale in a meeting, not your home) but I wasn't there quite yet.
I will be back, though. I will see this through.
Speaking of seeing things through, I have to give a BIG shout-out to my girl Melissa for completing a half-marathon this past weekend!
She started running (for the first time in her life!) a mere 7 months ago.
Back then, she started with running 2 minutes at a time. She would run 2 minutes, walk, run 2 minutes, walk. You get the drift.
Look how far she has come! Her story and example is inspirational to me and should be to others.
I've learned in the last year that it's not enough just to know the path. You have to walk it. (Or run it, in Melissa's case!)
How are my Challenge members today?
