Day 701: Weighing In In September

Let’s get this thing started shall we?

So yesterday’s post was convicting for me. I have been trying to lose weight, but there have been some times recently where my heart hasn’t been completely in it like it use to be. I know the math: eat less, exercise more, drink water. But like I was talking about last night, if I don’t give this all I have, I’m missing out on weight I could be losing.

With that all being said, I really didn’t know if today’s weigh in was going to be good. Yeah, I ran 7 miles and played softball with strangers in the park for 3 hours on Sunday, but I also ate a decadent burger from Vertigo, some delicious homemade pizza and other amazing things this week. That doesn’t always balance itself out. Well, I got lucky I guess… I lost 2.2 pounds which means I’m down to 231.6. I was 231.2 before Disney so if all goes to plan, I’ll be back in to unchartered territory this time next week. (I’m so flippin ready to be in the 220’s!!!)

Anyway, let me give you a quick breakdown of my food intake today.

Breakfast: A 100 calorie English Muffin with a tablespoon of peanut butter. It is a super filling breakfast. The English Muffin had 8 grams of fiber alone! 3.5 points

Lunch: I had two servings of our leftover chicken enchilada soup. I knew dinner wasn’t going to be until after our run so I at two servings with cheese and sour cream. With the cheese and sour cream it was probably 14 points

Pre-Run Fuel: I had another 3.5 English Muffin and 2 points of cereal (I just grabbed a handful out of the box. Don’t tell Megan.)

SAWS I went for a quick 5k today and I was a little slower than my 5k PR (about 70 seconds slower). The awesome thing about running in Tallahassee is there are always owls hooting in the trails. It’s like my own aviary cheerleading squad! (Don’t judge. I love owls.)


Dinner Tonight, we had some delicious Asian Pork from the always amazing Skinny Taste site. Ah-maze-ing (or however Penny says it on Happy Endings. I have no clue how to spell it out.) If you want the recipe for that, either hit up the Skinny Taste Pinterest board I made or search for it on her site. It’s awesome.

So that’s about it for today. Not too shabby.

Wordless Wednesday will be full of shots from the game this past weekend. Get stoked.

See ya tomorrow.
