A Healthy Train Update

It's been awhile since I've done a report. In fact, it's been a month. I didn't realize that was the case.

This Week's Loss: 2 pounds
Total Loss: 75.6 pounds!!!!!!!!!!
Starting Weight: 239 pounds
Current Weight: 163.4
Pounds to goal weight: 13.4 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!

What I noticed was different about my body: It is really hard to lose weight when training for a race especially in the last few weeks. I also took this month to figure out what I could change that was practical and most beneficial to my weight loss journey. I noticed that I tend to struggle the most on the weekends. But during the week, I can stay on it like nobody's business. So I've changed my weigh-in days to Friday mornings.

Workouts I did this week: Half marathon and Pure Barre twice. I let myself have a break from running this week.

Favorite Song of the Week: Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke feat. T.I. & Pharrell

Personal Goal for this week: Get back into the swing of my running schedule and hit up Pure Barre as much as possible. I really am starting to fall into love with PB as much as running.

What I’m looking forward to: I get to see family very soon!!

How is everyone else doing on their weight loss journey?

Happy Friday!

Awesome job sista! I ran once, did the JM 30ds twice, lifted weights at the gym two nights, and ran on the treadmill at the gym. I wish I had gone to few classes at the gym, but I did what I could, when I could. :) Happy Friday!

I tried to comment, but blogger keeps deleting them.

Anyway, I find you to be such an inspiration. I started this weight loss journey last year and 15 lbs in discovered I was expecting (a big, big shock!)

I'm back on the train now and really hoping to show some progress soon. Thanks for all the information about what worked for you. It's helpful.
