Weigh-In Week 157: Race Weekend!

Weigh-In Week 157: Race Weekend!

Weighed-in yesterday and I was down 0.9lbs. Yahoo! New weight is 152.0lbs for a total loss of 99.6lbs. Happy for the loss, it could have been larger, but I ended up working out a lot this past weekend and I find those weeks I don’t lose as much – perhaps water retention. This weekend we … Continue reading

Accountable in April & a 5K!

April is among us (but really I couldn’t tell by the weather!) and this means a new exercise challenge for me and the end of March’s. All in all I put in a pretty poor showing at the March challenge  – March Meltdown – with only 7/8 lbs lost and 1150/1200 activity minutes. I’m more upset by not … Continue reading
