Well, I didn't make my actual goal, but I am REALLY close to it. I see no obstacles to being able to make it to my goal this week.
I am starting a new challenge on Monday. A friend wants to sign up for a Warrior Dash in April and wanted people to do it with. I am completely freaking out, but I committed to going with her. So, my new challenge is to train to complete the run. It is a run with obstacles and is about the length of a 5k. Lots of work to do! But it will be loads of fun, sweat and tears! I am looking forward to the feeling of accomplishment when I jump the fire line at the finish line.
The run is April 20th, so that gives me plenty of time to prepare. I don't want to set an actual goal weight to be at by that time but 180 to 185 is not an unreasonable number on which to set my sights.
In a NSV, tonight hubby and I ate supper with my parents and we grilled elk steaks and had corn on the cob, broccoli and rice. When we walked in my Mom had just rolled out biscuit dough, OMG! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her homemade biscuits! Somehow though I restrained my self and had 1 and a half. Normally I would have at least two if not more. Even better was that when I got home and tracked my calories I was still 50 calories under my upper limit. I normally don't get that close but I had a couple of small treats today. Huge Huge Huge victory for me! I can do this!
