True Confession Tuesday: Not So Bad

True Confessions

I don't think I have much to confess this week. I've been a very good girl, so instead of confessing just the naughty, I'm going to confess some of the nice.
  • I added a MAJOR deposit to my bank this week. I walk/ran (2.5 minute intervals) 5.8 miles in 73 minutes on Sunday! I did this outside for the first time in the winter. I learned very quickly that I was horribly overdressed and was shedding layers before I hit the first mile.
  • I changed my status on daily mile to "runner".
  • I bought a new, smaller, belt this week.
  • I started the 30 day shred with the DVD I won from the sisterhood (thanks, girls!). While starting this workout, I'm 3 workouts from completing the EA Sports Active More Workouts 6 week challenge. So I'm doing double workouts until next week.
  • I've been getting up really early to do the shred, but I also haven't been going to be early enough, so I'm really wiped out.
  • I've been staying around 1200 calories a day (I eat my exercise calories). This is really hard on run days because I burn 600-700 calories. I hate eating just because my calorie count is low, but I'm working on the "food as fuel" mentality.
  • I've been drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day, but my skin is still really dry and my lips are so chapped they hurt, so 64 oz may not be enough for me. (Excuse me while I go fill up my glass again.)
  • I have not been eating enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Don't know why. Just lazy, I guess.
  • I posted "before" pictures on The Hood. Scary, but I just wish I'd taken before pictures at the beginning of this journey. I've lost over 10 pounds and have several pairs of pants taken in.
  • I ate Stacy's Simply Naked Pita Chips right out of the bag last night while watching The Bachelor. (I guess that's a double confession-admitting to the late night snacking and admitting I watched The Bachelor.)

After 2 weeks of slight gains (while being extremely good in the food/exercise department) I am really hoping and praying for a good weigh-in tomorrow. But if it doesn't happen, I'll get over it.

How did you do this week?


  1. Great job with getting enough calories. I know it's hard but you need to get them in. You're body needs it and eating less calories doesn't mean you will lose more weight. You're doing GREAT!

  2. Woohoo on the belt! Isn't that the best feeling??


Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!

Happy New Year 2020
