Moo… It is Monday!

Okay, I saw this cartoon and had to laugh.  I have a muffin top and I hate it!  Maybe I should love my body and be positive about it like the girl in the cartoon…  I will say my muffin top is shrinking a bit and I like seeing it shrink…  Don’t worry, I won’t be wearing a cut-off shirt showing off my muffin top.  That is brave.  If you google muffin top in images, you will see a million women willing to wear cut-off shirts to show off their muffin top.  Grossssss….  I have one and don’t plan to flaunt it and really wish others would do the same.  LOL!

So this week went pretty well in diet and exercise world. 

Weight Loss:

Last week I was happy to have not gained a pound and this week I lost a pound.  I am happy with that.  Slow I go…  but that is okay.  This is a long process.  No magic is being performed.  My grand total is 13 pounds in 7 weeks. 

I have to say that this week was hard.  I had tons of cravings for food that were not clean choices.  I am guessing that was due to my poor behavior over the weekend.  I gave in a few times.  Yet, when I did give in, I kept those foods small in portion.  My sister-in-law made an awesome mermaid cake for my nieces third birthday.  She makes the best icing and then covered that icing in chocolate wafers (pics. later of the cake).  Yep, I gave in and had some of that.

Exercise:

This marks the end of week 1 in a 10 week training program I am working on for a 10 mile race I will be running at the end of April.  It was a pretty easy start.

Tues. – 2 mile run
Wed. – 2 mile run – 1 mile walk
Thurs. – 60 min. Boot camp
Friday – 2 mile run – 1 mile walk
Saturday – rest
Sunday – 2 mile run in 21 minutes

When I buy cookies I eat just four and throw the rest away. But first I spray them with Raid so I won’t dig them out of the garbage later. Be careful, though, because that Raid really doesn’t taste that bad. ~Janette Barber
