Weekly Round-Up

Another week has flown by, and I’m pleased with my progress thus far.  It’s not always easy, but I feel fantastic, despite still not really sleeping well and fighting off the pestilence that has settled upon our house since H began school.

Some updates, though not a whole lot has changed from last week:

What I’m Doing:

  • Training and cross-training, as often as possible.  It won’t be easy to run the half ten pounds overweight (my goal); and it sure as hell isn’t easy to train 20 pounds overweight.  But I focus on putting on my shoes and moving.  I don’t expect to PR come December.  I just want to be there and run the entire time.  To this end, I know I need to log the miles, every chance I get.
  • Googling when the next installment of The Biggest Loser premieres.  Didn’t they used to do two seasons annually?  I was disappointed that I won’t get a Jillian-fix until January; but after the holidays, I’m sure I’ll need her more.
  • Avoiding desserts.  I DID NOT EAT A SINGLE DONUT at Friday’s Mom’s League meeting.  This is a triumph for me.  FREE DONUTS, GUYS!  I survived.  I also did not return to the register at Corner Bakery on Friday evening and order multiple desserts, which is my usual M.O.  Personal growth, y’all.

What I’m Eating:

  • Holy crap, you guys: frozen grapes.  J and I had never tried them, and now we are slightly obsessed and fighting over them each night.  So sweet!  So cold!  Just delicious.
  • A smoothie a day, still.  I’ve got H and J drinking them as well.  Still throwing in whatever seems appropriate.  Still delicious.

What I’m Reading:

  • My blog archives.  It suddenly occurred to me that this whole getting back in shape after baby thing?  I have done it before.  And I’ve got at least 10 blog posts to prove it.  I really decided to look up the ol’ BAB Proj after wondering how much I weighed 7 or so weeks after birthing Hendrik.  Unfortunately I am slightly behind my thirty year-old self on the L-B front.  I’m currently hovering around 160.  My dream is to reach the 150s this week. (I will take 159.9, dudes.)

What are you all up to this week?

  1. No more Jillian on Biggest Loser. At least she wasn’t on there last season.
    Great job on getting your training in. I haven’t made time to exercise since my two races in the spring and I don’t have the excuse of a brand new baby!
