I feel great!!!! (this is where positive thinking helps)
I am not going to be upset over my weigh in this week even though it was only 0.4 lbs lost. I really don't know how this happened as I worked out 5 days straight, ate amazing, and didn't cheat once.
My hubby thinks that because "George" is visiting that it is affecting my weigh in. It could be, but the one positive thing about working out with "George" is less pain.....I didn't have to take Advil one time....AMAZING
I am soooo close to 50 pounds lost I can taste it. My mouth is watering. This week I am gonna bust some ass people (not that I haven't been already)
In the C25K front I have completed weeks 1 & 2. It's tough. I have no idea how people can run such long distances. I feel like I'm dying after 2 minutes. My calves hurt, my shins hurt and I think I pulled my left hamstring....lol. I'm starting week 3 tomorrow. Wish me luck cause I think I'm gonna need it! Here is what the scheduled intervals look like:
All in all I have lost a total of 46.6 lbs since February 1st. Not too bad. I am 10 lbs short of where I would like to be though. My original goal was to lose 10 lbs a month, but I didn't take into account plateaus. Boy do they suck.
Here is what my total loss so far looks like in my weekly fish pic:

Yesterday my fam and I went to our local Farmer's Market. It was really cute but I was suprised at how little vendors there were. I expected it to be a lot bigger since we have such a huge farming community within a 20 minute drive from our cities core. I scored a ton of great local produce and also some grain fed meat.
I also taste tested a few veggies that were new to me, and had me curious:
Purslane: An edible ground cover that you can pick, and use in salads. It has double the amount of omega 3's than Kale, and it has tons of Vitamin E and antioxidants. I really liked it, it tastes sort of like spinach.
Armenian Cucumber: This tasted like a cross between a cucumber and a zucchini. I personally didn't care for it as I didn't think it had too much flavour. It sure was crisp and crunchy though. The skin was furry which kinda weirded me out since you don't need to peel these.
Adam was also begging us to take him bowling as he was upset that he was left out of "Adult Bowling Night." Of course we felt like shitty parents and bowed down to his every need, so after the market we took him. Here is Adam in all his Bowling Glory.....
Yesterday also seen the sky Gods bless my city with some much needed rain. This heat wave that we have been having has been a little ridiculous to say the least. The storm approach looked like impending doom for my town & it was a little scary. Then the wrath was over and we were blessed with a double rainbow, now that you don't see very often.
So ending this week on a positive note......Goals
This week's Goals will be on:
