Weigh in Wednesday

So my plan to run each day is not starting out well.  Between the kid's activities and hubby's hockey and work I haven't been able to get to the gym after work.  It is dark before and after work so I am uncomfortable running by myself outside.  Tonight is also not looking good for a run as hubby has a hockey game to coach.  I guess I will just stick to the running 3 days a week plan.  Maybe once it stays light outside for a while after work I try working on running each day.

Got some potentially upsetting news about my nephew yesterday.  There is a possibility he might have Lymphoma, he is going for more tests today.  They were going to make him wait 2-3 weeks for the tests but my brother got them to move up the tests to today.  My nephew will be 16 on Friday.  I am hoping the tests come back with good news.

Since hearing about my nephew I googled Lymphoma to find out some more information and I looked at Team in Training.  I had looked at it in the past but the amount of fundraising you need to do kind of makes me nervous.  Now that this disease might hit close to home I am looking more into possibily joining Team in Training for a race.

I will keep you all posted on my nephew and if anything comes of Team in Training.

On to the weekly weigh in...

Starting Weight: 192.8
Last Week: 173
This Week: 171

2 pound loss!

My weight loss seems to be leveling off since the big loss I had the first week I was doing the paleo diet which I was expecting.

How was your week?  Any experience or thoughts on Team in Training?

Sorry I have been MIA

Wow!  It has been just over a month since I last posted.  I didn't mean to go MIA.  The week of January 21st was a busy week and I didn't get in any of my runs.  Actually I haven't run since but I am planning to change that, I need to change that.  I also fell off the eating healthy wagon for about 3 weeks as well and had gained a few pounds back.  That has changed though.  On February 12th I texted my hubby at work and told him that I wanted to go Paleo for Lent.  I am not a really religious person but I thought what the heck.  So far so good.  I have stuck to the Paleo way of eating and have lost a bunch of weight doing it so far.

I know it is not Wednesday but since I missed posting a few weekly weigh ins thought I would post what I weighed in at last Wednesday.

Starting Weight: 192.8
Last Weigh in (Jan 23): 177.4
This past Wednesday (Feb 20): 173

4.4 pound loss!

When I started the Paleo diet on February 13th I was at 179, which means I lost 6 pounds in the first week.  Most likely the reason I lost so much so fast was because I had been eating horrible the previous 3 weeks.  I am back on track eating and weight loss wise.  I just need to get back on track with my running.  I signed up for a race on March 17th so I have about 3 weeks to get back in shape to complete a 10k.  Yikes!   Need to get my butt in gear!  I also have my Rock 'n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon coming up in November that I need to stay in shape for.

I had signed up for round 2 of the Run Your A$$ Off Diet Bet.  It wasn't looking good at first with my horrible eating and lack of running but it ended today and I made my goal!  Woohoo!  So glad I turned it around. =)

I am going to try to run each day this week, provided I can make my schedule work with me, even if most days it is just a mile or 2.

How have you been this last month?  Have you tried the Paleo diet?  What are your plans for the week?
