Down & Dirty::Could it be? | Christy


Could I really be on a roll? I’ve lost every single week for the past 5 weeks. Seriously. That’s so big for me. I haven’t been counting my WW points, and my exercise has been spotty at best, but I have been listening to my body. When I indulge, which I do from time to time, I reign myself in and get back on track. I’m drinking plenty of water, too. It’s working for me, so I’m going to continue.

A bit of good news is that I’m back to running! I ventured out over the weekend to test out my ankle, which is fine, and ended up logging 5.6 miles. So exciting!! In other news, I’m about to start a boot camp of sorts. One of the ladies at my son’s school is a certified personal trainer and has ordered that we’ll all show up on the 30th for boot camp initiation. She didn’t ask, she told. WOW. How can I argue with that? Here’s an excerpt from her email:

I hope to see you on Monday, August 30th at 8:30 am for our first day of bootcamp.  On this day, I will perform fitness assessments including body fat composition, strength, endurance and flexibility testing.  We will also do some goal setting and I will introduce you to my method of training so you will know what to expect.  Please wear your workout clothes, good shoes and bring plenty of water because you will get your first “mini” workout as well.  Please send this to anyone you know who might be interested.  I have had great results with hundreds of clients over the past 18 years and I am excited to get to do this with my new Divide friends.

It is so important for us, as moms to take care of ourselves so that we can be the best moms we can be!

I think she means business. Also, I’m really excited because I have NEVER had a fitness assessment, and the last time my fat % was checked was in middle school! GAH!!!

So here are my numbers:

Challenge Start: 142 Last Week: 139 This Week: 138.4

Challenge Loss: 4.6

My goal for this challenge was 5 pounds. I’m almost there.

My goals for this week:

  1. Get my 1/2 Marathon training set up and on the calendar. My race is 11/14, and it’s time to get serious!
  2. Continue eating mindfully and listening to my body.
  3. Have another loss next week!
