Wednesday Weigh In

Ah yes, the return of the Wednesday weigh in.  The most dreaded post of the week.  

I was a little worried going into today's weigh in since we had Chinese food on Sunday and my water the last few days has not been quite as good as it should have been.  But I was surprised when I got on the scale and it read 229.2   I'm down 2 lbs since last week!  I'll take it!

As I mentioned in my previous post, it's been a great week as far as exercise and tracking has been going.  Water consumption is definitely better than before but that is still something I need to work on.


Here is the exercise break down:


Thursday - 69 minutes walking
Friday - 30 minutes C25K; 17 minutes walking
Saturday - 31 minutes walking
Sunday - 54 minutes biking
Monday - 30 minutes C25K; 43 minutes walking 
Tuesday - 16 minutes walking


I've amped up the walking significantly here lately and have been trying to take advantage of my 2 daily walk breaks and have attempted to get to work early to squeeze in another 10 minutes if I can.  Now to get weight training back into the fold.  The plan is to go to the gym this afternoon for another round of C25K and weights.  I've got hubby and some friends to text me later and make sure that I actually go.  Hey, you gotta do what you got to do!

And here is a Miles to Mordor update for our facebook group.  As of right now we are at mile 81 and we are on a forest path on the way towards Bree.   We are trucking along nicely!

And finally Monthly Exercise Minutes are at 316/1000!

    2. It's a real trail that goes from coast to coast. It's charted for a virtual walk here: https://www.verywell.com/webwalking-usa-walking-program-3432830
      You can track in steps, minutes or actual miles. I'm doing miles.

    1. Thanks! Yea, me too. I go in super spurts with the blogging but I've been feeling the motivation to do so lately. It definitely helps when you are motivated to actually exercise and eat right and that resonates with my blog haha.
