Getting Stuff Done

Happy Monday!!
(Remember, participating in today's link up automatically gets you an entry into our swimsuit giveaway.)

Well, I can add to my list of stuff to get done, "remember to get Emily's progress info", because it's Monday and I totally forgot to ask her. JULIE FAIL. :-) (Edit: Emily's progress info is now at the bottom of the post!)

I had a good week this week! My knee enjoyed some much needed rest and by the end of the week I was back to adding some running into my workout. Today is the first day I plan to be back to the Couch to 5K plan, starting back at week 3, day 1. Even with the reduced workouts, I lost one pound this week. One pound a week is slow, but if it can keep it up, I know it is weight loss I can maintain, so I'm happy with that. And, I'm happy to say I budgeted my eating well enough that I still enjoyed a night out for a friend's birthday that involved things that were fried, cheesy, and covered in frosting, so I'm thrilled. (Those were separate things, by the way-- the fried, the cheesy and the frosting....though I could be on to something.......)

I'll update with Emily's progress as soon as I have it! Here it is!

Emily's week: This past week was just insane at school! It was the final week of classes, so I did indulge in some chocolate a few nights... and copious amounts of cheese. (Hey, you can't live in Wisconsin without enjoying cheese. I think it's a law or something...) Despite the chocolate and cheese, I have continued to lose weight. I'm around 8-10lbs. total lost, but it fluctuates.

How about you? How was your week?

  1. Congrats on the 1 lb!! I have no idea if I lost weight, but I was able to squeeze into another pair of pre-pregnancy jeans yesterday. They were VERY tight, but they were dark wash so I didn't think it looked too bad. :-)

  2. hi julie! yes, it was awesome meeting you! you are such a fun one to hang with!

    and wow, a 5k, i'm like the worse runner ever. last week i ran for the first time in like two years (no joke) and i couldn't even do a half a mile (pushing a double jogging stroller). maybe i should join in on the couch to 5k. hmmmmm.

  3. I'm getting stuff done- not blogging about it, but for the past 5 months, I've made a huge effort to eat fresh fruits and vegetables for snacks and at meals! I keep a bag of blueberries in the freezer and pop a few in to curb my hunger while I make a healthy meal or snack. This helps me avoid the junk food that sneaks its way in the kitchen. Not every day is perfect, but I'm still incorporating much more of those healthy foods into my diet than before!

  4. Just signed up. I love this. I have recently started an exercise program with friends. I need to get a working scale, however, mine has bit the dust. It is kind of fun though...I step on and it tells me I weighed what I did in high school. 2 minutes later i do it again and I have lost 3 pounds, 2 minutes later..woo hoo I lost another 3 pounds, lol. I wish it were only that easy. ;-)
