Week in Review - 6/04

OMG! Guys, when I stepped on the scale this morning, I broke the 160 barrier!! I could hardly believe it. It's been far too long since I'd seen a number under 160. It was definitely a nice surprise to start my day.

Only two more weeks left in the Bikini Series. I'm really excited about how well I've stuck to the workouts and how focused I've been on eating better. I'm hoping that much of it sticks around long after the series comes to an end.

Goal Check-In:
NO Fast Food ✔ technically, I was good this week, BUT I did break last Sunday after last week's update.
Starbucks 1x per week ✔ since I broke on Sunday with fast food, I decided ZERO Starbucks this week. Success!
72 oz of water a day ✔
Stick to the workout plan ✔
Sub 10:00 min/mile - Current avg pace: 10:20 with temps getting hotter and hotter, not sure I'm going to make sub-10 during this challenge. Maybe in the fall.
Lose 10 lbs - ↓ 8.4 lbs

Highlights of the Week:


National Burger Day
This probably shouldn't be a highlight, but we went to Jack in the Box last Sunday for National Burger Day, and OMG! It. tasted. so. good.


Memorial Day Group Run
If you read my May Report Card, then you probably already know that I finally made it out to a group run. My goal is 8 group runs this year, so I'm pretty excited that I finally got out for my first one. It was a run, but we also hiked to the summit of Lone Mountain.



Cinnamon Protein Iced Coffee
I made the most delicious protein iced coffee yesterday for the Ultimate Coffee Date.


#RWRunStreak
The summer Runner's World run streak started on Memorial Day. #37DaysofAwesome kind of snuck up on my, so we'll see if I make it to July 4th.


Broke the 160 barrier
I already mentioned this above, but it was so exciting to step on the scale this morning and see 159.2 on the scale. I know it's just a number, but it still feels really great. I never really put too much stock in the scale, but over the years the number just kept creeping, but it's nice to see some downward momentum.


What's a highlight from your week?
Did you enjoy a burger on National Burger Day?

    1. Thanks so much, Wendy! I didn't know that last Sunday was national burger day either - until I get a text from Jack in the Box. lol.

  2. Congrats on the weight loss and being able to stick to your plan. I really wish I was that dedicated. In my mind I wanted to lose a little weight before bikini season but I was lazy and didn't stick to the plan (or really even make a plan...haha).

    1. LOL. Yeah, I'm not usually this dedicated, either, but for some reason this bikini series really struck a chord with me and I've been working really hard. It's definitely gratifying to see/feel some progress.

  3. Does your no Starbucks mean no coffee at all or just not calorie drinks from Starbucks? Congrats on the weight loss your hard work is paying off for sure

    1. Oh, I've still been drinking plenty of coffee. :) It doesn't seem worth it to me to buy black coffee at Starbucks, so when I go, I usually get some rich and delicious (and high in calories)

  4. Congratulations on breaking through that milestone! I think we did have burgers last Sunday, now that I think of it. It was a great weekend for grilling.

    1. Thanks so much, Coco! It's fun to know you celebrated even when you didn't realize it was a "holiday," right?! :D

  5. Great job!

    I did not know about national burger day, but I haven't had a burger in a few weeks. I try to cook meals at home as much as I can to be healthy, but I do splurge. I've been splurging this past week with training done, but I'll get back to it this coming week.

    1. Thanks, Lesley! I try to eat a home most of the time, but I just couldn't resist the BOGO offer from jack in the box. lol.

  6. Congrats on the scale victory. That is so sweet and your hard work is paying off. We no longer have Jack in the Box in these parts but a burger sounds delicious! I had the most amazing Thai BBQ tacos this weekend. Wow!

  7. Congrats on the successful weigh in! I'm not surprised at all as you have been working so hard :)

    Can you believe that I have never been to a Jack in the Box? I also had In and Out for the first time last Fall, lol

    1. Thanks so much! I have been working really hard, but it's still a nice surprise for me. I think I was trying not to be too hopeful. :D

      I'm originally from MN where there are no Jack in the Box or In and Out locations, so when my family comes out they are usually on the to do list. lol.

    1. I missed out on National Donut Day. :( Not because I'm trying to eat better, but just because I didn't realize what day it was until too late.

  14. Congrats on your weight goal! I remember what an amazing feeling it was when I was losing weight. I felt like every pound was a victory. And then when I finally hit my goal weight it was like a weight had been lifted -- literally!

    1. I set a 10-lb goal for this 8-week series. I wasn't very hopeful that I'd achieve it, but I'm getting pretty close. I don't want to stop there, though; I just wanted to start with a somewhat manageable number.

  15. totally missed the National Burger Day...oh well. Congrats on the downward "spiral" on the scale ;-)

  16. Great job on your progress, especially with the water intake and the workouts! I need to get back to working out again (and I'm super terrible about drinking enough water--I need to work on that too! x_x)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Drinking enough water has always been a struggle for me! I've missed a few days, but am overall really happy with how it's gone.

  17. Make sure you're being careful with your pace goal. Maybe you'll get lucky and see a break in the heat and humidity, otherwise I agree, wait til the fall to work on reaching that goal.

    1. Yeah. I've pretty much just come to that conclusion. The heat is tough!

  19. Highlight from the week? Seeing little man cross the finish line at his second triathlon. So cool.

    Congratulations on hitting that number! You must be so proud! All that hard work is really paying off.

    I didn't celebrate National Burger Day, and I am totally jealous of your Jack In The Box. So yummy but we don't have it here. Womp womp. :(

  23. Awesome progress! My daily goal is to drink about 80 oz of water too and I have yet to hit that lol. That is the hardest part for me when it comes to healthy lifestyle/losing weight.
