Weekly Weigh-In and St. Paddy's Day

Starting weight: 193.8
Last week: 72kg (158.7 lbs)
Today: 71.5kg (157.6 lbs)

Weekly workouts:
Runs: 1x
Crosstraining: 3x

Voilà! Here's the first weigh-in of weight loss journey 2.0! Down 1.2 lbs! Not too shabby for the first week weighing in again. While I did have two days that I wasn't as on track as I wanted to be, I only ate more than my "calorie output" one day and, surprisingly, it wasn't St. Patrick's Day! For St. Paddy's Day, I budgeted for 2 pints of beer and was able to resist peer pressure and stick to that. Felt good (especially the next morning!) and we had a great time!

Huge street party in front of O'Neill's Irish Pub

Road cone loudspeaker? Definitely.

I'm hoping to step it up again this coming week and make it count. Here are my goals:
  1. Get three runs in on Sunday (tomorrow), Tuesday, and Friday. I've decided Sunday is going to be my long run day, so I'm going to shoot for 5 miles tomorrow and go from there. I need to get myself back in a regular pattern again!
  2. Do 2 days of P90X as cross training.
  3. Try and be smart going out to dinner tonight with the girls and not over do it
What are your goals for the week? :) Now, off to read your blogs!

You are doing great! Congrats on the loss this week. It sounds like you have great goals for the week. Great pictures! I bet you guys had a blast! You look fantastic, by the way.

It's neat that we're launching phase two at the same time! I have a feelings we're going to be pretty darn successful. :)
