Yes today is a countdown! 5 days until the start of a new challenge over at the Sisterhood! August 1 starts the Down & Dirty in 30 Challenge! Doesn’t it sound like fun?! And what makes it more exciting is that its a TEAM challenge!!! Yay!!! I can hardly contain my excitement! If you want more info, check out the details here and you can find out where to RSVP to get on a team!
Now that I’ve got everyone all pumped up about the new challenge, it’s time to get down to business – the weigh-in. I hopped on the scale this morning with my eyes closed and peeked at the number with one eye – 137.4. Not bad. I won’t even count that as a gain – more of maintaining. Especially considering I lived off of milkshakes this weekend after having my wisdom tooth pulled. Now if I had been smart and planned properly, I could have stocked up on protien shakes or Ensure (if either are GF) and saved some calories but alas, I didn’t and soaked up the opportunity to indulge. So now its back on the wagon and off to the races! Only 12.4 pounds until I reach my goal weight!
I am also officially halfway through Couch to 5k! I totally kicked Week 4 Day 2 this morning (and only felt like I was going to fall over versus die this time!). I am glad I repeated week 4. I definitely needed it! But I must admit I fear for what week 5 has in store! But I’ve still got week 4 to finish so I will concentrate on that for now and leave the fear for next Monday!
So here are the stats:
Starting weight: 164.4
Last week’s weigh-in: 137.2
Today’s weigh-in: 137.4
Overall Change: -27.0

You are doing great. Sorry to hear about the wisdom tooth, I had all four of mine done at once – ouch. But actually, it wasn’t that bad (don’t hate me). I only had to eat soft foods for the weekend following the procedure and it was all good. I don’t think I lost any weight back then because in my mind soft food = ice cream!
great job! 🙂 this week was just a tiny little blip on your way to the goal. when you’re miserable with your teeth like that you have to have something to perk you up! (okay i’m totally condoning emotional eating here – oops)
great job on your training. don’t be scared to just plow on through the plan. while it may seem like some of the runs or typos, or moving ahead too quickly they know what they are doing!
You are doing AWESOME! I was responding to your SITS/BF thread at the same time you were commenting on my blog this morning I think! 🙂 Took it as a sign that I was meant to come visit you. Glad I did. I will be back!
You are doing great-both on the weight front and the C25K front! Great job this week. Hopefully your mouth is feeling better by now. I had my wisdom teeth pulled in HS. Totally sucked.
good for you and way to go! those are some great results! keep on trucking with your couch to 5k!
Congrats on your halfway point with c25k!! Keep it up – it’s great to finish it!!
Great job!! and congrats on the running. I started running in April and have been plagued with injury after injury. Do you have a race scheduled yet for when you finish the program?
Actually I have two! I have one on October 30 called the Freaky 5k (which is run at night!) for fun and then one in December that I am running for Team Gluten-Free (part of the Celiac Foundation)!
