So, I've decided I need to go back to weighing myself once a week!



Last Saturday I weighed in at 172.4 and Wednesday I was 171.6 and it seriously bummed me out, like I really thought I was going to be in another plateau because I was working so hard and eating nearly perfect. So, I rested yesterday and didn't eat as well as I normally do, because I was just bummed with myself. :lol:



BUT! This morning I weighed 169.9!!!! :D



I'm 10lb from my goal with what I wanted to be when Seth got back, which I know realistically isn't possible anymore. BUT I'm only 5lb away from my other goal (being 164.5 when I got pregnant with Kenz!) and I think that is definitely still possible to accomplish before he gets home. :D

I drug my SO and DD out this morning to run a mile on our local track. I only improved my time by a couple of seconds but at least I ran and got out this morning to do something.



I am really struggling with shin splints they have been killing me the past few days and really affecting my workout. Anyone else have shin splints. I am not sure if I should just push through or if thats causing more damage.

I get shin splints really bad when I'm running too... so then I just kinda give up. :oops: Hopefully someone else has better advice, lol!



But great job for getting out there this morning!!

My eating is super bland and boring. :lol:



I do a green smoothie for breakfast every morning, basically any fruit(fresh or frozen) I have laying around mixed with spinach/spring mix. I like to add natural peanut butter to it to for some protein/fiber and a better flavor. :)



Then the rest of my day is literally snacking. I eat in season fresh fruit (blackberries/cherries/blueberries right now) and then veggies like carrots, green peppers, cucumbers. And I have a greek yogurt almost every day, sometimes I'll mix in some granola or flax seed with it.



Then dinner, I seriously suck at. I never have time to actually cook a meal, so it's typically a lean pocket.. or a chicken breast with cooked veggies. Sometimes I'll get the energy to make a wrap or sandwich. :lol:



And I always make sure I drink a crap ton of water throughout the day!



Other good snacks are almonds and dark chocolate!

I weighed in at 214 today! I also reached a mini goal of mine. My size 16 jeans now button up. Still feel too tight but a few weeks ago I couldnt get them to button at all :oops: Its really not where I want to be, but its making progress! Im a long way from getting my 32s to fit but if I keep it up there might be hope they will fit by the summer!
