Finally, a little progress!

The scale FINALLY moved in the right direction. I lost 2 pounds this week which is exactly what I was hoping for. I didn't even suffer! I cut back on my carbs but still had pizza - just half the amount I normally would. I even ran again yesterday though it was a bad one. I was out of breath and slow even though I was on a treadmill in a nice, cool gym but that's what happens when you skip days. I realized I was being a little hard on myself because it was almost 2 miles and that's a pretty decent distance for a busy Thursday.

I'm blogging about my weight loss today in the hopes it will carry me through the weekend and keep me honest with my eating. I can easily put that back on over the weekend but I'm challenging myself to keep it off and start a new, healthy week 2 pounds lighter. I have 4:30 Bikram this afternoon which is always a great start to the weekend. I can also keep myself busy with some exercise, some gardening and lots of food prep for the week ahead.

Happy Friday everyone!


  1. Pretty awesome on the loss! And I'm proud of you for realizing that HEY, YOU RAN NEARLY 2 MILES! Good going, Tina!

    I'll be thinking about you tomorrow morning as I run early to beat the heat...hope you have a good run as well!

  2. Take it! That's exciting, my friend. Sorry I missed Yoga. I was dooped into watching 3 very active boys. It was the exact opposite of zen. Next week FOR SURE!
