Healthy Train Tuesday: The Recommitment

This Week's Loss: .4 pounds

Total Loss: 56.4 pounds

What I craved this week: Nothing, because I let myself have whatever I wanted.

What I noticed was different about my body: I really cannot say this enough. When I eat like crap, I feel like crap. Fattitude is a VERY real thing and is hardest to overcome when I'm doing things I know aren't good for myself. I don't deprive myself. I just eat in moderation. But there is a difference between moderation and over-indulgence, and this week, I really made no effort in the self-discipline department. 

Workouts I did this week: I wound up taking two weeks off post half. The first week was intentional. The second week was not. The rain that was here from Hurricane Sandy kept me off the roads. On Sunday, I did my first run outside in 32 degree weather. I was cold until I started running. Then I warmed up nicely and my outfit was just enough. I'll be experimenting with my running gear during the winter time for sure.

Personal Goal for this week: I have two. It's now the time when I have no life in the semester. Although, I've felt like that the entire semester with the exception of pre-planned events.

So my goals for this week are to tackle everything on my school to-do list and kick butt on my weight loss journey. I have a goal of where I want to be by the time Christmas break rolls around and I'm determined to get there.

Any guesses on what my goal is?

Favorite Quote for this Week:

"Tonight, when you lay down your head on your pillow, forget how far you still have to go. Look instead at how far you've already come." -Bob Moawad

"When I'm worried and I can't sleep
I count my blessings instead of sheep
And I fall asleep counting my blessings
When my bankroll is getting small I think of when I had none at all
And I fall asleep counting my blessings"
-Count Your Blessings by Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney, A White Christmas

What I'm looking forward to: Christmas break!! Only a month and a week away and yet, I'm looking forward to all that will happen between now and then as well.

Happy Tuesday!

This weekend was bad. My inlaws were in town. We were eating out a ton. And I had a love affair with a box of girl scout cookies. By Sunday night I felt so gross. My body just doesn't function very well on all that crap!!

Monday morning I was back on the wagon and I'm already feeling better. We can do this!!
