Blerg. Totally fell off the wagon this week, after hitting the 5 pounds gone mark. Hopefully I haven’t undone everything.
Really need to get back to the gym where I was workin on a 5k training program. Not sure what has me so unmotivated this week… but I’m definitely not feeling it. Maybe it’s winter…
Post # 13
@Sunnybrook: I’m blaming winter too!!! I try to keep in mind that it’s basically 4 months until the wedding so I need to keep it in check…as I get ready to go out to dinner for my birthday and eat cake. Ha!

Exercise Goal: run at least 3x per week (to start!), gym 3x.
Food/Diet Goal: Intermittent fasting – 2x24hrs per week. 4hr body slow carb diet the rest of the week.
Healthy Habits Goal: Fiance and I are giving up alcohol for lent.
I don’t really have a monthly goal. I’m keeping a running weighted average of my daily measurements on the scale. As long as every new data point is below my trendline, I’m happy.

I havent been doing formal goals but my half marathon training has been going well! I have done three of my long training runs (as well as many short runs during the week) and I am now up to being able to run 6 miles!!! I will go for 7 this Saturday!
Tha bad thing though is that all this running has made me so hungry that I’m jsut eating whatever is around…and that is not always healthy
