Weigh-In #6 (or #2 for Team Peach)

Hey there everyone,

I am happy to report that I am down another 1 pound this week, to 161.0 lbs. Not as much of a loss as I had hoped, but good considering my family's fun weekend up north in Silver Lake, MI with my sister and her family. (That's me in the driver's seat of the dune buggy. The two big kids are mine and the little ones are my niece and nephew. The lighthouse is the Little Sable Point Lighthouse.)

I managed to keep up my running schedule of 3 x per week (I'm now running 2 1/2 miles consistently and my 5K is coming up) and strength training 2 x per week. My nearly 40 year old body is starting to complain a bit as my knees and legs are aching pretty much all the time, but that is what Advil and Alieve were made for. I also kept within my points range every day, except I didn't track over the weekend. I think I did pretty well, though.

Now it's time to plan for my next trip. We are going to a bunch of brewpubs with friends this weekend, and there is usually nothing on the menu that is even remotely healthy. (Lots of bar food, yummy steaks, etc.) One of the gals is vegan, so my plan is to just eat what she eats all weekend and hope for the best. At least there will be no dairy or animal fats! I also need to keep up my training for the 5K. It actually falls a week ahead of my training schedule, so it is going to be a bit of a stretch to finish without walking, but it is what it is and I'll just do my best.

Hope everyone else had a great week and I wish you all a happy, healthy week next week as well.
