Healthy Train Tuesday: Earning it.

This Week's Loss: 1.9 pounds. HOLLAH!!

Total Loss: 63.4 pounds

Starting Weight: 239 pounds

Current Weight: 175.6 pounds

Pounds to Goal Weight: 25.6 pounds

What I craved this week: In order...
  1. Cake. I blame Ellen DeGeneres. 
  2. And pepperoni pizza with ranch and Pepsi. Apparently, I'm craving heartburn. Also, I blame this craving on Gilmore Girls. 
  3. Also, Iced Tea. And fro-yo from those fancy fro-yo places. I blame these two cravings on the Insta.

What I noticed was different about my body: My long run was 5 miles this week. My average pace was under 12 minutes. I know that is slow-thirty for some people, but for me that is progress! I attribute this to my weight loss and also to putting in the time. So I guess what I'm trying to say is JUST KEEP RUNNING! It all pays off!

Workouts I did this week: Hit all three of my runs including a 5 miler. Boo-freaking-yah!

Personal Goal for this week: I've got a few.
  • This weekend we're celebrating with friends. Why are we celebrating? Oh you know because I had a BOMB DOT COM semester!
  • Also, this is Super Bowl Sunday. (Part of you are like Duh Sam!) 
  • So I guess I need to just plan for both of these events!
  • Hit all my runs. My running partner took a spill in the snow the other day and she is out for at least a few weeks. Running is a whole lot easier with a running buddy. So I'm gonna start small with this week and just keep at it.

Favorite Quote for this week: 


What I'm looking forward to:
  • Celebrating my hard work with BBQ food! 
  • Pay Day on Friday! 
  • Ordering my first Moving Comfort Bra! 
  • Being done with the month of January!
  • Losing more weight!

Frame of Mind: I'm worried about this week. I lost this last week, and I really want to stay on track. I don't want to ruin all the hard work I put in this week because of BBQ food and the Super Bowl. I'm planning for it, but still. I'm just trying to be honest.

How is your lifestyle change going?

Happy Tuesday!

Love that complaining quote - so true! Lord knows if that worked then I'd probably weight 10 lbs.

awe-some-work! woohoo! I am afraid I will have a gain tomorrow. Do not recommend eating chili's twice in one week and drinking when you normally don't...fail. You are an inspiration!

Way to go, Sam! You are an inspiration. I LOVE seeing real people losing real weight while living real life. It is such a great reminder that there is no reason why anyone can't lose weight.

Hi y'all! The name's Samantha. You can call me Sam if you like. I am a lover to a boy I met at Falls Creek in the summer of 2005, that is a student of Jesus, a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I'll be Sooner dead, Democrat by party, blonde to the core, and oldies but goodies kind of girl.
