The turtle wins the race...
Slowly but surely...

I keep telling myself these things. Don't be impressed I lost almost 2 lbs this week. Last week I gained a half a pound and never updated my journal... oops.

I'm trying to be patient. I was very excited when I got on the scale this morning. I'm only 6 lbs away from that 150 mark! That's less than the amount of weight I have lost since December 1, so I'm in a super mood.

I now have volleyball 3 times a week, which is awesome, and I'm going to try and fill the other two days with running. Tomorrow my coworker and I are going running outside at lunch. It should be mid-50s, so it'll be nice out! Today had a high of 70 (what?!)! Crazy.

I've been trying to find healthier snacks. So I grabbed a bag of dried apples that, while they have some other weird stuff added, have no added sugar. I've been slacking on my two apples a day snack though, so I bought a huge bag at the store to get back into it. I really do love apples. I love strawberries too, but good ones are so hard to find.

I hope you all are having a good week! Good luck on your diet challenges :)

Woo! Lost the weight I gained during the Holiday break. That means next week I'll see some real loss.

So, as I told you all, I was going to limit myself to one sugar drink a week. Can I just say that I excelled last week? I had hot cocoa, and it was delicious! I wanted lemonade, but the store didn't have it. :(

I'm hoping to find time to go running this week, but it's so cold (it's in the 20s), and I feel like I have no time to run on the treadmill at work. That is, of course, probably a lie. I could make time, but a part of me just wants to go home and snuggle with the dogs and read. Is that such a bad thing? I should have time Thursday after work, so I will aim there!

Other than that, I've been feeling hungry sometimes. Mainly in the afternoon after lunch. I eat my two apples, a piece of cheese, and then either belvita or nuts. But I'm not satisfied really. I know I'm getting enough food, and am definitely drinking another water. I don't think my dinners are unhealthy, I make everything at home. My husband says I'm not really hungry, and it's just my head making me think I'm hungry. Oh wells.

I hope everyone has a good week!!

So, admittedly I did not do my best during Christmas break. However, I don't think I did too bad considering. I know I will get it back off in a week or two though, so I am not too concerned.

I now have volleyball twice a week, and I run about two days a week. If I can stand the cold, I might try to run on the weekend too. Let's just say it's was flurrying today sooooo that probably won't happen. ;p

Today has started really well though, just some fruit, nuts and some left over lunch yesterday. I'll probably have yummy sloppy joes for dinner ;p

So I have been mulling over some ideas for new year's resolutions. First off let's say this, my resolution last year was no soda. And how about this, it's been ONE YEAR AND 4 DAYS SINCE MY LAST SODA. <3

So this year, I will be doing only 1 sugary drink a week. I am not including coffee because I only add 1 tsp of sugar (4 g of sugar) and some almond milk. This will include starbucks drinks, lemonade, my almond milk if I make chocolate milk with it, etc. If I limit myself to once a week, I'll be reducing a lot of calories, and I'll still have it once a week so it will be like a treat. I am also making it a goal to run a 10K this year by initially following the 5K plan (once again) from the Nike app, and then following the 10K plan from the Nike app.

Feedback appreciated!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
