Weekends, What?

First things first, Annie is hosting a wonderful giveaway! Her blog is inspiring and amazing, so go check her out!

Zero...the number of times I worked out!
Two...the number of decent healthy meals I had!
Half...the number of pints of beer I had at a concert!

This weekend, it wasn't great diet/exercise wise. I discovered I am a week ahead on my training schedule for the half and instead of using it as an advantage to train a little more, I decided taking all weekend off from exercise would do the trick! Now, I did do plenty of things for the remodel. Think painting, sanding cabinets, lifting and moving boxes. So, I did get some calorie burning going.

We went and saw Dessa, Grieves, and P.O.S last night! They are amazing musicians and you really should check them out! The show was supposed to start at 9:00, but like every other time, it didn't start until 10! The show ended at around 1 or so! Today, I am TIRED!! Got a nice big coffee(with a touch of creamer). Seeing them(this was the first time I saw Dessa and she was AMAZING!) was so worth the exhausting day I am sure to have.

Breakfast: Cinnamon Raisin english muffin with Peanut Butter
AM Snack Yogurt with Cinnamon Raisin granola
Lunch: Cup of Corn Chowder and a 6'' turkey sub
Afternoon Snack: Honey crisp apple
Dinner: TBD

Exercise planned for today: 3.5 mile run and Level 2 of the 30 Day Shred(my favorite level so far!).

Goals for this week:
1. Drink 128 oz of water a day.
2. Eat between 1400 and 1600 calories.
3. Track calories.
4. Stick to training plan!

Goal for February:
Be at 125 by February 28! Only weighing once a month!

Can't wait to catch up and find out how your weekends went :)

Ok, I REALLY hope you take this the right way because I honestly mean this as a compliment: I really liked reading your food entry because you actually seem to eat NORMAL food. Sometimes I go SO crazy reading peoples food logs because it's like "for breakfast I had an apple. For lunch I ate a piece of chicken and some lettuce" and I'm like...ok....I look like the freakin food monster compared to you!!

Anyway, sorry to let that out on your blog....but i just dont get how I am eating the same amount of calories as these people and they seem to be eating nothing! Yours reads a lot like mine though, so it made me happy! haha

Ok, done ranting :)

I'm totally not a fan of level two of the 30 DS... I hate plank.... I hate it so bad.... but I do it because I want to prove Jillian wrong... and I sweat my ass off so I figgure I must be burning calories....

Keep with the plan - it sounds awesome!!!

hmmm, I could do with drinking more water.....

Ahhh the joys of not weighing every day! I cannot tell you how important this will be to your success. I know that is contrary to the normal belief system but you will be soo much more successful. Especially with how tiny you already are :) Good luck!
