Race Week {Healthy Mama Challenge Week 32}

It’s 5 days until the Flap Jack and Jill 5K.  Eeek!  Thanks to the fantastic weather the past week I’ve been a little more excited about going out and running.  I’m not really where I want to be as far as my training is concerned- I have yet to run all 3 miles straight without stopping but I’m pleased that I am sticking it out and getting in some good exercise on a regular basis- even if it is intervals or running and walking.

On the plus side earlier this week I discovered that the route I have been running is actually 3.6 miles not 3.0 like I thought.  Yup, I was a math major for sure.  So for a few weeks now I’ve been running 3.6 miles.  I kept wondering why I was running so slow according to my times but I felt like I was running/walking faster than that.

I need to clean up my diet again.  Two weekends ago we took a road trip and I stopped food journaling and really need to get back to it but for this week I want to mostly focus on getting my runs in so that I’m ready for Saturday.  It hasn’t been all bad- I have eaten well some days but other days I have turned my brain off and eaten junk.

Last week I completely forgot to mention how I am doing on the scale.  I’ve been a little up and down lately, but I’m about the same as I have been the past few weeks. Since beginning my Healthy Mama Challenge 7 months ago I have lost 11.4 pounds or 6.6% overall.

I have a few weight loss goals-

  • Get to a healthy BMI (0 pounds to go) Goal Reached!
  • Get to my pre-pregnancy weight (1.6 pounds to go)
  • Get to my pre-marriage weight (6.6 pounds to go)
  • Total Weight Loss Goal {Get back to my ideal weight} (16.6 pounds to go)

Wish me luck this weekend!  My #1 wish is that it does not rain.  I hate running in the rain.
