Happy Monday!

My weigh in went well yesterday, I was at 208 so that makes 4 pounds lost for the week! I moved up to 4th place, yay!!! :)

What a weekend….the party went really well, everyone had a great time, JC loved it. I had one slice of pizza during the party, and I planned for it by eating super light earlier. I had two slices yesterday, and THAT I am not happy about. I retained some water weight from the sodium this morning, so I am going to do two workouts today to sweat it out. It was my first time eating something that I hadn’t planned to in all of this time, and I learned from it because A) it wasn’t worth it and now B) I have to work extra hard today to balance it out. Oh well, lesson learned. Back to the grind this week!

I had so much stuff to do yesterday, we woke up super early for Palm Sunday service and we had the usual errands plus getting ready for Easter. I had to make three Easter baskets, including Dylan’s Thomas & Friends themed basket. I always go a little crazy for holidays, and Easter is no exception!

Because you runners who kick ass have been inspiring me, I jogged a little on Friday during my walk. I did 11 laps around 4 blocks, I would walk 3 blocks and jog 1 block. I walked/jogged a total of 44 blocks, much more than my usual 36 during my lunch hour. Oh boy, I have a loooooooong way to go to get anywhere close to how great you runners are! My goal is to do the same each day this week to start building my endurance.

I am so happy that I’ve made these changes, that I’ve found others here who inspire me every day, that I’ve joined Allan’s challenge, that I have so much to look forward to. I am so grateful.
