Weigh in Wednesday & Tackle the Miles Virtual Race

Tried to get my 4 mile run in last night but when I went to my Y it was packed.  No treadmills we available and most of the ellipticals were taken as well.  Decided to put off my run until today and do something else last night.  Thought I would try out my new Zumba game for the Xbox Kinect but couldn't do that since hockey is back and hubby was busy watching a couple of games.  Than I thought I would do one of the exercise videos I have at home on the other tv after the kids went to bed.  That didn't work out because I ended up falling asleep while putting my son to bed.

My hubby has a hockey practice planned as long as it doesn't get to cold (it is an outside rink practice).  If that happens I will do my Zumba game while he is at his practice and when he gets home I will run off to the Y (hopefully it isn't as packed tonight) and get my 4 miles in.

On to the weekly weigh in....

Starting Weight: 192.8
Last Week: 179
This Week: 177.4

1.6 pound loss!

Total weight lost: 15.4 pounds

After I had reported my weight for the week on Myfitnesspal it told me I should reevaluate my goals so I did.  I get 50 less calories a day now.  Boohoo!  I am sure I will be fine but it is slightly scarey on the days I don't run so don't get the extra calories.

I will be participating in the Tackle the Miles Virtual Race in February as one of my #13in2013 races.  I can run any distance (5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon, or trail run) between Februrary 1-8.  Looking at my upcoming running schedule I decided to run a 10k on February 3.  I already have a 6 mile run planned for that day so I will just run an extra 0.2 miles to make it a 10k.

There is no cost for this virtual race and there will be prizes.  The run is sponsored by Mizuno, Choice Organic Teas, Active Approach, Fit Approach, and Spright.

How was your week?  If you go to a gym, have you been having problems lately getting a machine?  Are you participating in any virtual races?


  1. Great job on the weight loss! The only reason I go to the gym is for fitness classes. I signed up for the Tackle the Miles virtual race too! I plan on doing a half that week.

  2. Hiya, I found your site from the Tackle the Miles virtual race registration. I'm also doing a "10k" on February 3rd, although I'll also be adding an extra 2 mile warm-up and 1 mile cool-down since it's a 9 mile long run day for me :)

    I haven't had any problems at my gym. I go on my lunch break at work, but I'm not there at peak hours since I take my lunch from 2:30 to 3:30.

    Nice to "meet" you!

  3. Ooo, since it's been a few months from this post, what did you think of zumba? My husband got it for me as a gift. (not sure if I was offended or not LOL)

    I only go to the gym for the group classes and mix my training up with the treadmills and a few spin classes.

    Congrats on your 1.6 pound weight loss! =D
