So I've gotten a little derailed with my uber-health conscious eating & fitness regime.  Last weekend I went to Edmonton with girls from work & gave myself a free pass to eat what I wanted for supper each night. I was still good for breakfast & lunch & I went to the gym at the hotel 2 out of the 3 days, but gave in & ate appetizers, entrees & desserts... and Baskin Robins... and then I never fully got back on board with eating clean & working out every day.  And I'm not gonna lie... I got slack with my scripture study & prayer too... so I feel like it's all connected & I need to jump back on the train.

So I just needed to make that confession & now I'm ready to start fresh tomorrow... starting with a nice egg white/veggie omelet!

I LOVE ADIDAS miCoach!!!

 1st part of run today

2nd part of run today

I can track all of my stats from my runs & once I get the miCoach pacer I can keep a more accurate stats like my heart rate, a more accurate running pace, etc. I also use the miCoach app for the iPhone that tracks my runs through GPS. All of these things are so motivational for me! 

I used to use the Nike + system (you may have seen my automatic posts on Facebook) but it doesn't have anything that I can use to track my heart rate as well... So Adidas miCoach it is!  Today I did almost 8km of running (well, jogging) (& only about 15% of that was walking breaks) ... so I'm really pumped about that!

And when I got on the scales today it said 208.4! Yay!

Truckin Along...

Well... things are moving along... slowly.  I guess this is just the time I have to put in to eventually see results.  I shouldn't complain... I guess sometimes I just feel things should be like they are on The Biggest Loser & that I'm heavy enough to see big numbers each week.  But I'm not.  It's little bits here & there.  I thought it was that I was doing too much strength training, so I cut down to 1 or 2 sessions per week.  And I've been diligent with eating clean & working out 6 days a week (minimum 45 min cardio)  My clothes are fitting better... but I still just feel soooo big!

I guess it's just that I seem to have the mentality of someone who's already lost the weight, I just need to wait until I actually do.  It's like mentally, I've already arrived at my destination...but in reality... I'm still chuggin along on that weight loss train.

So as far as weight loss stats... I was getting frustrated with the Wii Fit as my sole means of tracking my weight (because I didn't think it was being that reliable... so I got one of the girls from work to get me one of the Jenny Craig scale. 

 So my weight reads higher than the Wii Fit was telling (my last reading from it was 207.2) And when I first got on the JC scale, it said 212...but now (a few days later) it's saying 210 lbs.  So that's my new official checkpoint for where I'm at.  It's a few pounds setback, but I'm using that to keep track now.
