Since Friday my life has been crazy. I got called for an interview at 3:30 and I had to be there by 4. So wasn't ready for that. Then on Saturday we went out to dinner for my friends 30th birthday!! I was so proud of myself. My husband "coach" and I went for my walk/jog before dinner and I made pretty good choices. I had the steam veggies for my side dish and for the dinner salad I had dressing on the side, no cheese or bacon on the salad. YAY me!! Just a month or so ago I would have had the loaded garlic mashed potatoes and had them load my salad with cheese, bacon and dressing! It's amazing how my mind has started to switch in just a month. BUT, I had 2 yes 2 drinks. :( But, I never drink so I thought it was okay.

On Sunday my church celebrated it's 5th anniversary!! So there was a potluck after church. I got lots of veggies and fruit and felt satisfied until I saw the CHOCOLATE CAKE my worse/favorite thing oh and white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. I knew if I didn't at least taste them I would go home and binge. I took 3 bites of the cake and threw it out, but I did finish the cookie. And yes it was worth it!!! So good!!

Today I got called for a different interview and after that we went to Costco. Did really good there, didn't by any sweets or anything!! When we got home we went for the final day of week one!! I have to admit that day 3 was harder than day 2 and day 2 was harder than day 1. I felt like I was barely moving today and my knees (especially my right one) are killing me. I can barely move. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or if my fat is just to much for my joints to handle. My husband said that my running time is speeding up, I think he's just trying to make me feel good about myself.

How was your weekend? Hope you have a great week and tomorrow is my weigh-in!! We will see how the first week of counting calories went!!


  1. Nice job! It's crazy how fast your tastes change, isn't it? I'm so impressed that you were able to stop with just a taste of the cake, that's aweosome. I had a crazy weekend, didn't make the best food choices but had a fabulous time! Runs are weird, some are great and some are miserable, so you just have to go into every one hoping its a great one.

  2. When do you weigh?? You're doing FABULOUS! I can already see a difference. For reals. It only makes me slightly irritated since nobody sees mine. But you do!
