Weigh In and Day 2!

First off, thanks for all of the comments on yesterdays post! You all had a lot of great things to say. The verdict for myself is definitely have snacks for a backup, but listen to when and what my body wants! Also, Morgan pointed out that I should be careful with the Clif bars, and she is totally right. I started eating a whole one and then went down to half, but I think that will be my AM snack for my long runs on Sundays and maybe half a bar before my evening workouts if I am ravenous! I am so excited to see NEW followers!! HI EVERYONE!! WELCOME!!

So, I weighed at my gym today and I am now at


I lost .4 lbs and couldn't be happier! Especially because I had 32 oz. of Gelato(Italian Ice Cream) and that's A LOT! I didn't do fabulous on eating, but I think I did okay! Next week, I am hoping to see 125.something :) I am sure I can do it! Just got to stick to eating right and cutting back on the Gelato!!

Today is Day 2 of half marathon training and I feel GREAT!!! It is also Day 2 of the "30 Day Shred"!! That's right! I am going to do it for 30 days and actually stick to it!! I will be taking some before pictures hopefully tonight! It's going to be a tough 30 days, but the more I push, the better my body will be! I do need strength training pretty badly! My body fat is 26.2% and it was at 22% just a couple of weeks ago. The scale might be wrong, but I doubt it!

Hi there,
Saw your comments to Monica about the 30 DS...I've just started it too (I'm on day 5, I think, I'd better keep track of that!).

We can do it!

Morgan said...

Congrats girl!!! :)

Anna said...

Impressive! What half marathon training program are you using? I'm going with Hal Higdon's novice one... so far it seems pretty reasonable. We'll see when I get to some of the higher mileages. :D

I really admire you for training for a half marathon. It sounds like you've been getting some great results lately too.

Wowzer you aren't playin this time! I've heard the shred is super tough but I have nothing but confidence that you will do AMAZINGLY with it!

I'm also excited to see some pics!

what i wouldn't give to be doing the shred right now, I take back everything bad I have ever said about Jillian :-)

Keep it up you are doing so great girl!

Foodie Girl said...

Great job on the loss! You are doing such a good job and your enthusiasm is so contagious!

Katie said...

Thanks! :] You're great!

Congrats on the loss! A little gelato here and there won't kill you. I'm sure you will do wonderful this upcoming week!

The 30 day shred is quite the killer, but TOTALLY worth it. I did it this past summer & although Jillian and I shared a few nasty words throughout- I loved her in the end :]

Hi - This is my first visit to your blog - it's great, and you're doing fantastic. Good luck with training for the Half - I walked a half in 2008 and it was great. A very long walk though! The run will be quite a lot shorter. I suspect the training will help whittle you down to your size 6s nicely.

YAY - good weigh in!!!
