Well, it’s been a week since my last post! I have now been working at my new job for 9 days— I love it! I’m enjoying the projects that I’m working on and it feels great to learn new things and be back in my “niche” so to speak. I really missed the Clean Water Act side of things! Along with work, my food habits have been good for the past week, minus of course, the weekend. I’m attempting to follow the points plus program and it’s going fairly well, although I tend not to count on weekends which is an easy way to slip up and ruin all the hardwork done the rest of the week. Luckily, I got enough activity points this weekend that I could pretty much eat whatever I wanted lol. On Friday, Franklin and I walked into the city from our apartment to meet Andrew for lunch. The entire trip was about 19 Miles. We are out from about 9:15Am until around 5:30PM… it was a day full of exercise… and blisters. Ouch! But it felt good and I’m glad we did it- the weather was absolutely goregous.

The weekend was a rather lazy one which was nice because of the not being able to walk thing, but we didn’t get to go camping which was a bummer. We were successful, however, with planning our meals for the week and going grocery shopping on Sunday. We used up the majority of the ingredients this week and our effort to be less wasteful is definitely not going unnoticed! The refrigerator is looking emptier than usual which is a great feeling! We have some veggies still that will be incorporated into veggie paella on Sunday most likely. We talked about getting dinner from a really good Italian place tonight but instead, opted to make tacos in with some pork that I had slow-cooked with cumin, salt, pepper, lime juice, etc.

Also, on Tuesday, we decided to try out the Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred Series. It’s basically a workout circuit that consists of three levels. You commit to completing the workout everyday for 30 days… 10 days at each level. The workout is only about 27minutes total which is nice because it’s easy to fit into the day. BUT MAN IS IT TOUGH! It combines cardio, strength, and abs and it’s nonstop always switching up what you are doing to confuse your body and keep your heart rate up. We just finished Day 4 this morning. You can use weights or not depending on how god you are at the program- we’ve trying to use weights but ouchies does it make you sore! We’re enjoying it though, so ┬ámore on that as we hopefully, stick with it!

I’m hoping to get back into running training again. I would like to do a 5K in the next two months which should be doable and then train for a half marathon within the next year… take it slow so that I don’t injur myself and stay motivated :0) This morning we weighed ourselves again. Although I’m still frustrated about Andrew losing weight, I wasn’t as frustrated today :0) Stupid boys!

I am happy to be down 1.9lbs. That’s about two pounds for last week and this week. Now I know I can do this!!
