Making progress!

Monday, September 08, 2008

My weekend goal was to eat vegan & I'm proud to say that I did it! ! emoticon When I'm eating at home & have all my staples stocked, it's super easy to do. DH also tried soymilk for the first time (Silk vanilla) & said it wasn't so bad. I'm so grateful to have a supportive husband; he's been my biggest fan since the beginning.

Mondays are my weigh-in days & I was shocked to find I'm 4.4 lbs. closer to my mini-goal of reaching 125.4 lbs. by October 19th. I've no idea how so much weight dropped off because I ate off plan last Wednesday through Friday. I did my own version of a last chance workout yesterday & figure that helped a lot.

Last night I articulated a general outline of what I plan to do to prepare for Hood to Coast 2009 to help give my workouts a purpose. Just so it's in writing, here's what I came up with:
A. Now to 12/31/08 - Focus on reaching GW of 115 lbs.
B. 1/1/09 to 5/31/09 - Focus on conditioning by utilizing RossTraining workouts
C. 6/1/09 to H2C - Focus on run training & increasing mileage

I moved to Stage 2 yesterday & I'm going to do the best I can to establish the healthy habits I need to effect permanent change.

Here's to a new week! emoticon
