Well I found it really hard to keep motivation to finish level 2 of the 30 day Shred.  I just plain didn't enjoy this level at all.  I did 4 days, I was going to do the 5th day today, but I'm just not up for it and got a ton of stuff on my plate at home, so I'll move on to level 3 Monday morning.

TOM.  This bastard is taking it out of me this month. He is totally kicking my butt!  I only had 40 mins less of exercise this week than I did last week, but I managed to burn over 1000 calories less than I did last week, and I ate 1000 more calories... That's over half a pound alone.  Mathematically I should be down 2.5lbs, but with TOM in town, I'm going to be happy with 1.


I would have to say my successes this week would be in my lunch creations.  Some of them are pictured above.  The baked chicken with avocado lime salsa and broiled tomatoes would have to be my number one pic, followed by my low-cal spinach and feta pizza, and finally my avocado, tomato and onion wrap with baked sweet potato fries.

Another success I had, was that I showed perseverance this week. I wasn't at the absolute TOP of my game, but hey, I did pretty darn good regardless.  

I made a commitment to Melissa from "A healthy change in my lifestyle weight loss journey from 330'slbs to 140" on my Facebook page to start Chalene Extreme not this Monday but the following one.  I'm looking forward to it.  Also I have been looking up half-marathon training plans.  I figure I need to be running about 10k on a semi-regular basis in order to start my training plan in May, so today I downloaded the Bridge to 10k app on my phone.

Hopefully I have more energy next week, because being low on energy makes me feel like I'm doing less than I actually am.  I feel SO lazy, but just now when I was crunching the numbers above I realized that I actually did pretty good this week.

Weigh-In in the morning.  I know it won't be quite as exciting as it was last week, but I am hoping for at least a 1-2lb loss.  I guess we'll see in the a.m.!

    Awesome week regardless of TOM! You are still rocking this journey like a champ!
    Your blog post makes me tired. LOL

    1. Lol, thank you!! Can't wait to have some energy again!

  2. Great job on the food and exercise this week!. TOM sucks I think he's getting ready to come to my place anyday. I'm feeling awful "poofy" It really sucks. Keep up the great work. I'm training for my first half marathon that is in May. I've never done one. I'm registering as a walker, but plan to jog what I can of it. My goal is just to finish it. You can do it! Keep up the great work Meg!

    1. Thank you!! Lol, I was mapping routes today, and wow, it's a long way! I know we can BOTH do it!!
