The Truth Of Tuesday Night

I'm a bad blogger lately!  I totally forgot about blogging last Tuesday.  I blame it on the fact that I didn't go to the meeting.  Also, I have some catching up to do on the other blogs I read.  It's on my To-Do list!

Let's get right down to numbers and then I will carry on with my sob story and excuses!

Last week: 252.50 lbs
This week: 251.00 lbs

Net Loss of 1.50 lbs.

I did good once again and was surprised, considering we threw Thanksgiving in there last weekend.

This really just means that I am eating less, without paying any attention to it or planning.

Also, I am still battling foot pain, which relates to ANOTHER week of no exercise.

This is where my excuses come in!  There are lots of things I could be doing that don't involve being on my feet.  I could put my bike out of the garage and go for a ride with the kids.  I could inflate the exercise ball and use it and the hand weights.

The only reason I have to brush these ideas off is I have lost my "mojo"

I had running fever and was IN LOVE with it.  Loved the feel of accomplishment and it made me feel so fit!  Now, once my foot gets back, I have to start at the very beginning and make sure I stick to only 3 days a week of running and not do more like I was.

My plan in the next couple weeks is to re-visit the week where I lost 5 pounds and see if I can replicate it.  I will eat the same foods and burn the same number of calories.

Wishing everyone a great week!!


  1. Amy-

    I believe in you girl!! :) Once your foot feels better you can start again and it will all be okay! I have completely given up on the C-2-5K program for now and am just focusing on losing weight and inches! I know when i drop a few extra flubby layers off myself I will be better at running! :)

    Hope the rest of your week is fantastic! :)

  2. Let me know if you find your mojo - maybe mine is in the same place :) I'm still so proud of you!
