Good morning my friends!
Hope you are all doing well today! I'm FINALLY on the mend and feeling much, much better. Still a wee bit congested but not nearly as bad as it was. I even managed to get to the gym yesterday for 1 mile on the elliptical and then some weights. I didn't want to overdo it but I just wanted to do SOMETHING!
Today is weigh in day for many of us across the blog-osphere. So once again I'm linking up with Heather and Ash for Weigh In Wednesday linkup.
I was a bit nervous about the scale since I've been sick. I did have one day (Friday) of eating poorly but the rest of the week I still managed to stay within my calorie range. I'm happy to report that I'm now almost back to my pre-Thanksgiving weight!
Down 1.8 this week! Now I'm ready just to get back to regular exercise and get to working on my next mini goal to get to the 60 pound lost mark!
I also treated myself with a Cake Batter Smoothie last night. So yummy! This has to be my absolute favorite flavor. I dedicated a whole post to it earlier last year.
After reading Runs for Cookie's (Katie's) Motivational Monday post the other day, I read about Martha and her Mile Streak. And then I also read recently about this amazing woman and her 100 day streak. And I'm thinking that I want to try another one.
I have been hoovering in the lower 190s and upper 180s since AUGUST! And I know we had a lot of personal stuff going on starting in October with Chris's dad's declining health and eventual passing. And then the holidays on top of all of that. So, I'm really wanting to start getting my mojo back and start knocking the rest of this weight off.
I think I'm going to do my version of the Mile Challenge for at least 30 days and see how it goes.
I must dedicate at least 20 minutes to either walking, elliptical, or running. (Right now, running and exercise walking is still out, but hoping to get released to be able to do those again after my Ortho Follow up appointment on the 27th.) I do have my fitbit but total mileage on that won't count. I have to dedicate that specific time for doing something and that will be at the very least 1 mile. Hopefully more, usually but I think I will just start out with this and tweak it. I googled the hotel we'll be staying at for Comic Con and it looks like the hotel has a gym so I can get a mile in easily before the con.
Has anyone else done something like this? Anyone else interested in joining me? I'm thinking I'll start today and see how it goes.
