Hot 100 update #5

Happy Halloween weekend blogland!  This has been a weak week (say that 10 times fast).  I'm not proud of the weight gain or the actions that lead to it.  But in reality there will be times when I need to live my life.  This is a journey and there will be ups and downs.  I don't like it but I am moving forward and keeping the larger picture in mind!  Being healthy is the ultimate goal!  

Tomorrow morning i am running my very first 10k!  It is freaking cold here and I may run faster just to reach the warmth, lol!  I can't wait to see where my training has gotten me! 
  1. Get more sleep.  I was good most nights.  But there were a couple nights were I just wasn't tired and couldn't attempt to sleep.  Must have been the full moon.     
  2. Lose 20lbs.  Weighed in at 218.4 that is a 3.2 pound gain! Fail.  But moving forward. 
  3. Meal planning.  We stuck to the plan and have planned out November!  I just need to decide where I want to go for my birthday and what night!  Win!
  4. Balance.  I love doing this at random times.  Filing, sure!  Standing in the elevator, why not?  Win!    
  5. Tracking.  Checkish!  The weekend was a bit off.  Yesterday, we had a potluck at work and I'm not entirely sure how to input all the homemade foods. I may just have to write it down.    
OctGTD Challenge update:  I completed 97.30 miles of my 100 mile challenge!  Hooray!!! I will finish tomorrow at the race and actually be over by a bit!  I am so proud of myself for being able to do this and finish!  I can't wait to go shopping for my reward! 

Have a great weekend everyone!  


  1. I can't wait to hear how it goes tomorrow! You have SO much to be proud of!

  2. I went off-plan last weekend, and strictly tracking everything i ate this week has been a big help in getting me back on course and the scales moving in a downwards direction can do it too. Congrats on the mileage by the way - that's great.

  3. Good luck on the race tomorrow! I have a cold 5K to do as well :D

  4. It seems everyone in blogland had an odd week this week. Most everyone gained or went off plan. Just say you were preparing hard for the race tomorrow! Good luck!

  5. OMG, I stumbled on to this blog from FB. You look great everyday. I am amazed by your weight loss and your continued goals. You inspire me! Jen

  6. Excellent on the running! Can't wait to hear about it!

  7. I love how you phrased it "But in reality there will be times when I need to live my life."

    That is a very poignant way to put it.

  8. Live your life! Great attitude.
    Best of luck with the 10k. Please come back and tell us all about it. You are an inspiration!

  9. Great job this week! Keep kickin ass!

  10. Sorry about the gain. :-(

    I hope the 10k went well. I so admire you!

  11. Thanks everyone! The race was a huge success. I can't let the gain define me. Although this week may be off due to a crazy weekend. And that is ok!
