Weekly Wednesday Weigh In

        Date            ChangeTotalWork Outs in Week

It's official I'm in Yo-Yo mode. I gained .4 lbs this week. I guess that isn't terrible considering I was traveling for 4 days and eating every meal out. The truth of the matter though is I'm all over the place this summer so I need to do a better job at being able to consistently lose even when I'm out of town.

Tomorrow after work I'm back at it and leaving for the beach with my boyfriend and his family.  The good thing is that we are staying in a condo with a furnished kitchen. This at least helps that breakfast and lunches will be eaten at the condo and I'm guessing most dinners will be out. Matt's dad is very excited to make at least one trip to Calabash for some seafood. I love Calabash shrimp (aka popcorn shrimp). I am going to resist the fried and stick with broiled or grilled though. (Matt hold me to this when I'm eying the menu). I also plan on working out in some shape or form every day I'm gone.

This past week I worked out 6 times.  My workouts included my final Couch to 5k workout (more about
that in another post though). I also went running 3 other times, did one 45 minute power walk, and 1 Zumba class.  Everyday I was in Boston I worked out by the Charles river with Matt. It was so beautiful and very refreshing to feel the breeze that came off the river.  We also took my nephew Alex for an adventure walk by the river. An adventure walk is really just a walk where you look for animals, boats, bicycles, trucks...anything that would excite a 2 1/2 year old boy. It's crucial to talk the walk up and be overly excited when you find the boats, geese, trucks, and so on.  The most important part though is to make sure to make a stop for a snack. During our stop my nephew saw a runner go by and said she was going really fast. He then told me that his mommy and I could ran that fast. I'm glad my nephew has faith in my running. He then wanted to show us how fast he could run. So after our snack we had races. He is really fast he beat Matt and I every time!

Sunday was my birthday and Matt and I celebrated by going to Red Sox game with my friends Laura and Karen. (Thanks to Karen and her husband for the tickets!) The Red Sox  took on Kansas City and won 8-1 just for me as a birthday present. We had a great time at the game and at dinner after wards. It was so good to see my Laura and Karen that I haven't seen in a year. It also was nice to introduce them to Matt.


  1. Congratulations on the work outs! Six in one week is awesome. Happy late birthday, too! It sounds like you had a lot of fun. :)

    Just popping over from the VBL competition to say "hi!" Have a great trip to the beach.

  2. Thanks for a great trip to Boston, and by the way, Alex LOVES the picture of you two on the bench!
