Weekly Weigh-In (#57) GOAL!!!!

*****GOAL!!!!******
Today I weighed in at 140.0!   On the money!  How weird is that?  
I just couldn't be happier!!!!  WOOHOOOO!!!!

Good Habits: 
Chewed sugarfree-gum for my sweet tooth.
Drank a half liter of water on the way to work and a 20 oz on the way home, every day.    
Drank 2-3 20oz bottles of Dasani while at work.  (Dasani is a nice healthy job perk.)
I went for three walks this week at lunchtime.  It was a little cold, but MUCH more tolerable than doing it in the heat of summer. 
I packed my lunch every day. This has become easy peasy...  I've become very good at planning and prepping so throwing it all in a bag in the morning, is like grabbing my purse before I walk out the door.

Still Needs Improvement - 
I managed to stretch one night for about a half hour and the short brisk walks at lunchtime, but I really want to be fit.  I want to be toned.  I want to feel strong.  I want to be flexible.  I want to have good endurance. I want this when I'm 60.  I want an active enjoyable retirement, one where I can put in a garden, go on a hiking trip in Peru, take a yoga class, explore Italy...

... A New Endeavor
My sister  Amy thinks we should run a 5K.  ... and I didn't say no.  (I didn't run either.)  We're thinking very seriously about doing the Couch to 5K program.  By the way, I get points for even considering doing this;  Running is NOT my thing, you understand.  However, truth be told Amy does all kinds of things that I want to do, so I really should reciprocate.  So this weekend I have put in some serious planning and figured out how to get training for a 5K, (did I just say that?) into my schedule. My C25K training starts today.... wish me luck! 

Now to Get On With My Healthy Fit Life!!

WOOHOOO!!! I'm so happy for you! And so very proud of you!! You are a ROCKSTAR!!!
Much love!

Oh! and thanks to some mediocre chinese food delivery for dinner tonight you weigh less than me today! LOL

Me, Christy said...

Thanks Chickie!!! We're both ROCKSTARS! It's not an exaggeration to say I couldn't have done it without you! Thanks for being there!!

Amy said...

YAY!!! 140! I am so HAPPY for you! You have been working so hard. I am also so excited that we are going to do this 5K. Trish can come to if she would like.

Me, Christy said...

Amy, thanks for the day to day support on this weight-loss venture! The texts and phone calls really helped me to stay positive and motivated.
Amy, Trish,the two of you were such great examples and positive forces!
I'm loving that I have such great family to support me in the upcoming fitness adventures.
Yeah Trish, you should Couch to 5 K with us. It'll be like Boot Camp, where we never work out together, and we don't have a drill Sargent pushing us and... um maybe it's not like boot camp at all. But it'll propel you into a new fitness level, at least that's what I hope to get out of it.

Wow! Somehow I got behind on your blog. Just caught up.
The 5K sounds FUN!! Truly. But I think my exercise is all going to come from getting this house ready to sell and stressing over the sale of this house. gah! Nervous break downs burn calories, right? LOL
