Actual fitness: 60 minute bicep and back work-out, 2 1/2-mile run, and my abdominal routine

Note on picture: This is the mini-Butterfingers I ate this morning: 45 calories.

Note on weight gain: I'm note sure why I'm having the weight fluctuations. Hopefully things will level out by the end of the week.

Going For Another Six Weeks

Or, however long it takes.

Even though, my blog says I've only lost four pounds, in my mind, I've lost six. That's because our body's weight will fluctuate. I did overeat a few nights ago, so maybe it's readjusting from that. At any rate, since I haven't lost all the weight I've wanted to yet, I'm continuing to keep my calories at 1,400 a day.

I've only eaten a minimal amount of the kids' Halloween candy. Like maybe two or three pieces. We have put all their candy up way high, so that I need a stool to get them down. That helps me to think twice before going to all the effort to get it down. Also, quite honestly, lately I haven't felt like eating a bunch of candy. I think that's a good sign.

I do need to eat more protein. We just cooked up a bunch of chicken breasts last night, so that should help me to start off the week on the right foot.

Hope your week starts strong too!

  1. How I wish I had a mini butterfingers right now. Way to start the week off with the chicken breast. Preparing ahead always helps. That reminds me that I should do some preparing and planning. Thanks for the reminder. Have a great week!
