Weight Loss Wednesday Week 9

I know I already posted today, actually in preparation for tomorrow, but I didn’t want to miss a chance to join my sweet friend over at Weight Loss Wednesdays.  She did great this week, make sure you check it out!
I have found a happy solution for my eating right now, not really strict and no tracking, I just have cut out sweets.  I will admit this week I have eaten a lot of honey nut cheerios, but on the upside, I finished them off today so they are no longer here to tempt any of us!  And I said no to a whole lot more foods than I normally would, even knowing I have to track them. 
Right now it is just working out better to tell myself, don’t eat those things.  Tracking is just too much right now.
I am also still exercising.  Have actually stepped that up a little bit this week because it helps me in some other areas of my life. I did a 5K race in the pouring rain with my sister a couple weeks ago and am doing another one this coming Saturday.  There is rain in the forecast, but this is mitten country, that can change by Saturday, right?
My sister and a girl I work with have me considering something absolutely nuts.  The Warrior Dash.  Yup, I am thinking about it.  Seriously.  I’ve made a little bit of a deal with myself, if I can shave 3 minutes off my 5K time on Saturday, I will sign up!  Wish me luck, or not, depending on how crazy you think I might be.
Survive til you Thrive!

  1. Thanks for stopping by Turn My Life Around. I am also not a tracker of my food intake. No time with the three little ones. (Mine are about the same ages as yours-4, 3 in June and just turned 1) I try to limit the sweets with them, but they are in the house and I find it hard to resist. See, I wouldn't even consider Honey Nut Cheerios as a sweet.
    Way to go on your 5K. I don't know if I could do that. And if you do that Warrior Dash, which I had never heard about before now, good luck, be safe and have fun. Sounds…interesting.
    If you have a chance, I invite you to come visit Tots and Me (www.totsandme.blogspot.com). I share a bunch of different activities and lessons as we are a homeschooling family. Love sharing my ideas.

    It sounds like you have come up with a plan that works for you. I can't wait to hear how your 5K goes this week. Thanks for joining in WLW! You are amazing my friend! Praying for you!
