Healthy Train Tuesday: 18 Weeks until my High School Reunion

Healthy Train Tuesday

Isn't she cute?!?! Make sure to grab the html code to the right when you link up!

This Week's Loss: 1.8 pounds

Total Loss: 65.2 pounds

Starting Weight: 239 pounds

Current Weight: 173.8 pounds 

Pounds to Goal Weight: 23.8 pounds

What I craved this week: Chips and Queso and Guac with Margaritas on a patio with the sun shining down on me. It won't be the same without the sun. COME ON SPRING!! WHERE ARE YOU??

What I noticed was different about my body: I am starting to convert to the Organic Foods train because I feel better when I don't eat processed crap. I know this is a no-brainer, but I resisted for a long while on this boat. Now am I full on hardcore organic? Nope. I still believe moderation is key. But I will say that I feel better when I eat better.

Workouts I did this week: Two runs: 3.5 miles and 6 miles. I am determined to hit the two on my own this week.

Personal Goal for this week: Lose two pounds this coming week. My high school reunion is less than 18 weeks away and I would be lying if I said I didn't want to be at my goal weight before then. So I have got to buckle down like yesterday.

Favorite Quote for this week: "You don't need other people to validate you, you're already valuable." (Well this is ironic considering the last section I just wrote. Whoops.)

What I'm looking forward to: WARM WEATHER. For realz. The weekend of March 10th, winter is on notice as far as I'm concerned. If I'm being honest, it's been on notice since last month, but I live in flipping Michigan. So it's not as easy as that.

Frame of Mind: This is a big week for me school wise. So if I've not around a whole lot this week, that's why.

How is your journey going? Happy Tuesday!

High school reunion is a perfect thing for motivation. All those little things help. You can totally do it, too! I love me some organic, glad you are seeing the value in it. (-:
