Thursday Weigh-In, Friday Update

Hey all! Just checking in because it is FRIDAY!!! Woohoo! I am so happy it's the weekend!

Okay so last Friday I weighed in at: 241.8.

Yesterday, (Thursday), I was at: 238.8 (-3)

So I lost 3 pounds this week! How amazing is that!?!?! Pretty dang awesome if I do say so myself. I weighed in yesterday instead of today because last night I went out to eat with my good friend Ashley. We went to our favorite Mexican restaurant and while I made good choices, I didn't want a false reading due to sodium intake. I will happily take yesterday's weight though! Hooray!

And in case you were wondering what I ordered last night - I got steak fajitas, and told them to hold the cheese and sour cream, and I asked for black beans instead of pinto. I only ate like 2 bites of my rice, and one tortilla. The rest of the time, I just ate the fajita ingredients right off the sizzling plate with my fork. Yum, yum, yum! I cannot wait to go back and get it again, it was beyond delicious! (I also ate some guacamole, too.)

Today I am stuck in internal debate. I am seriously reconsidering doing the triathlon this summer. And it isn't that I wouldn't love to do it - but right now, I have my heart absolutely set on running a marathon this fall. I just don't think I can afford to do both. The Tri class is expensive, and I am also afraid I will get so wrapped up in training for the Tri, that my marathon training would take backseat. I really don't want that - I want to fully commit to something. Right now I just have marathon brain. I can afford the marathon registration and a couple pairs of new shoes. I don't think I can afford those things AND the triathlon class. We'll see. But I will probably make a decision in the next few weeks here.

I did sign up for the same spring half marathon I've been doing for a few years now. I wasn't going to - but I just needed something to train for! I'm getting excited to start officially training for that race in a few weeks.

Aside from all things exercisey, life is great. I have taken on a new responsibility at church, and I am now the Sunday volunteer coordinator. Mostly this means that I am doing a LOT of email during the week. I'm loving it though, and I can't wait til Sunday to meet some of my volunteers!

I have kept my room clean for ALMOST 2 whole weeks. I am immensely proud of this.

Tomorrow I have my second laser appointment and then I'm going hiking. I cannot wait to get out into the mountains again, it has been way too long, and I have been itching to go for awhile. Super excited.

Apparently I can't escape talking about exercise. Well, I'm gonna get back to work. I have to start thinking about lunch, and then after work I have training. (See?!? Can't stop!)

Happy Friday, all of you!
