Weigh-in Week 50: Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s!

I am back on track! At weigh-in today I was down 2.5lbs for a new weight of 182.1lbs and a total of 69.5lbs lost 😀 Here’s hoping I can keep this up and get to 52 weeks reaching 70lbs.

Yahoo! I think posting my food log daily really helps with this so I’m going to continue doing it for the time being. This week wasn’t too bad food wise, I think I was fairly in control and making healthy decisions. Sometimes I chose the less healthy option like the pierogies, but I tracked and made sure to not let one over-indulgence lead to more.

HOWEVER…today I made a conscious decision to over-indulge. Because it was Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s! Yum. I have missed this day (usually because I forget) for the last 10 years, but not this year. I was free and I went. Waited 1/2 hour and gave my donation and got myself “Chocolate Therapy” mmmm….chocolate, brownie chunks, and more chocolate.

It was a gorgeous day today and I spent a lovely afternoon walking about with my ice cream. This week is shaping up to be a busy one once again. I can’t wait for it to be over, but so much work to get done in the next few days.

I really want to go out and run outside tomorrow to see if I can complete a full 5K. However the forecast is for light rain. I think even if it is raining somewhat I’m going to do it – why you ask? Because that is also the forecast for Sunday which is the day of MY RACE!! And, hey, the more prepared I can be the better. I’ll just be sure to bring a complete dry set of clothes with me so I don’t get sick.

My other exercise goals for the week include weight training on Thursday, another run on Friday and a video at home on Monday. I’m going to let Saturday be my rest day so I don’t over-train or hurt myself right before the race. Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost here. It seems like just yesterday that I signed up. It feels real now. Ahhh!!

Have a good week everyone and let me know your activity plans too! 🙂
