People Just as Crazy as Me

Twit Thusday (7-31)



  • Healthy Portions, Healthy Meals, 
  • No cheating this week... just to make sure I can still do that!
  • Run with Emry 3x
  • Continue with the 12 lb dumbbells 

How did I do on these goals this week?
I did really REALLY good.

I did not cheat at all this week. There was no meal or snack that wasn't planned, and wasn't within a healthy portion. I even got through Wednesday night without the WANT to binge eat. And that is a big accomplishment. A BIG accomplishment.

I maintained healthy portions, healthy meals and healthy sizes all week. And I honestly feel wonderful. My body is really not feeling deprived. I am sore, I mean... I've done a crazy amount of exercise this week. But, I feel as if I could do more.. so, that's a major improvement and shows what proper nutrition can do.

This evening, Emry and I will run for the THIRD time this week. We ran 2 miles on Monday, 2.75 miles on Wednesday, and we will do pre-race training today (with a whopping 4 miles). If you add in the 5.22 miles I did on Monday... that's a (so far) weekly total of: 13.97 miles. I will definitely run Saturday morning.. and that run will be probably 3-5 miles.. so, that's an amazing weeking running total!

12 lb dumbbells, don't you know it... I incorporated them more and more this week. :) And I'm very Very proud of that. 

I did weigh myself today and the number on the scale is: 130.6lbs. I'm not going to lie.. being as strict as I've been... as disciplined with the food and the workouts... I'm discouraged. And I know I shouldn't be. But, I know that I am doing the right thing... and that my body is adapting to the type of workouts I am doing, along with the added nutrition... I'm sure my metabolism will catch up eventually.

Just got to keep doing what I'm doing. I have to work back to where I was, and this is the price that needs to be paid, for slacking and overeating. This is a lesson that needs to be learned, the hard way.

I have also completed Day 3, of the Ab & Squat Challenge (pic in this post): Who's DOING it with me? How are you feeling? Last night, Reverse crunches.. UGH.. am I right?  But Keep Going! 3 Down 27 to GO!!!!

  • Keep Running w/ Emry 3x a week
  • More sets with 12lb dumbbells
  • Allow myself 1 cheat meal.. and don't go overboard with it. (It's about Balance right?)
  • Sleep is important, try and get enough SLEEP!

What did you do to be healthy this week?

  1. No binge on Wednesday?!! That is amaze balls! Good for you. What made the difference? The snack sizes?

    1. I really think increasing the snack size helped a great deal.
      I also, make sure that 30 minutes post workout, I have a 4 ounce protein shake (with almond milk)... It's supposed to help with the recovery. And I think it has... Honestly those two, minor changes, and I'm not feeling like I need to EAT EVERYTHING IN SIGHT on Wednesday night!
