Weigh In

Aaaah an old fashioned weigh in. It's been forever since I've done one of these since I started posting my weight and my goals in my Christmas Dress Countdown Challenge updates.

But since I missed weighing in I thought it would be nice to do a quick Weigh In today.

Current Weight: 210.2 (+ 1.8 lbs from last week)

Seeing as I expected my weight to be somewhere in the 2-teens I'm a little relieved that it wasn't TOO much of a gain. Either way a gain is a gain and I really need to get on that.

Work Out Achievement(s): The only real work out I did was Friday morning, when I finally got a chance to jog a loop around my new neighborhood and complete a 5k WITHOUT an mp3 player. I'm planning on signing up for a 5k (finally!) for November and I know they don't allow you to wear headphones, so I wanted to train that way. --- It also helps that my mp3 refuses to turn on sometimes. LOL

So I did a 5k in 45 minutes. Now I have to work on the time. Other than that, cold mornings, work and a convention kept me busy and a way from exercise (<---- horrible excuse!)

Goals: This weekend I actually had the luck to talk to a woman who knows a TON of resources for people interested in adjusting their eating lifestyle and gave me a lot of information. My goal this week, besides train for the 5k is to start researching this new information and try again on a new diet plan. 

I'll do another quick post later this week to talk about the juicing fiasco.

Morning outside of SFO and the bay. Lovely~

The Paleo way of eating is similar to what I have found works for me. Except I don't do the high fat ... I never liked fatty foods or eating the fat on meats. But when I stick with higher protein, lots of veggies and salads, and very limited carbs and sugars, I feel much better, my joints thank me and I lose weight.

Good luck this week!
