Doubling back.

Weekly Stats
Current: 220.4
Weekly Loss: 3.6
To Go: 45.4
Total 104.6

I had a good week this week. I was happy with all of my workouts and I had another good loss this week. I am worried about next weeks weigh in, but I will continue to work hard.

It has turned out well to mix in some jogging with my weekday walks. It has stepped up the intensity in a good way and is helping me get in better shape. Also the weight training has been good as well. The DVD's helped me build up to be able to do both the long walks and also the weights. I usually have enough time after I lift to get on the elliptical as well.

Saturday's walk ended up being between 10 1/2 and 11 miles. I got a little extra mileage in because I dropped my pedometer without realizing it. I was in a bit of a panic because I like to track my progress and the pedometer has been one way of doing it. I debated whether I should double back or try looking for it after I got home and trace my steps. Something told me to go back. I try not to ignore those feelings so I went back. After a quick prayer and scanning both the road and sidewalks, I found it in the middle of a side street that fed into a busy street. I was glad I listened because there was a good chance it would have been in pieces if I had waited to find it later. The Lord helps us in even the small things if we will do our part.

Hope you all have a great week! Special shout outs to Martha who continues to make good progress on her weight loss. Sarah, Mike and Rachel have been training and doing well in spite of the cold weather. Kudos to all of you who are continuing to work out and eat right as well. Hang in there and I will too!


  1. Sounds like a great week. Have you thought about getting a GPS watch? I love mine, and there are tons of features on it.

    Love you!

  2. I have thought about it. Just need to fit it into the budget I guess. Email me the details on yours and what you like about it.

    Love you too!
