Yay! I made my goal for the first week of the challenge! I am down to 237.6!! It was up and down for me this week with the house-sitting. Very hard to stick to an eating plan when you don't have access to your carefully stocked fridge and pantry! Even on the days I tripped (think evil gingersnaps) I did not go WAY over my calories. My goal for next weeks weigh in is 235 its another 2.5 lbs so I will have to push it just as hard if not harder to make it. I hope I can do it! That will get me 1/3 of the way to my goal for this challenge and considering that its a 6 week challenge I would be right on track. I am going to be switching more towards the sugar busters eating plan next week. Not hugely different from what I'm doing now just a bit more substance. I need to start working on a meal plan to support that goal!
I ran last night. Hit a record time of 41 minutes. Part of me grumbles that its only 2 minutes down from where I started but another part of me is just thrilled to see any forward movement at all. 35 minutes seems years away but I will just keep doing what I can. I really need to find another day to run. I would like to do it on the weekend but my weekends have been so crazy busy lately that I don't even know where I would put a run!
Tonight I ride! The weather is finally starting to clear up even though there have been some threats of rain. I am really looking forward to some serious riding. Now that its drier and the footing is improve. Its hard to get serious about cantering on a wet and muddy arena (at least for me). I need to give Romeo a really good bath as he is shedding like crazy right now. I come home covered in horse hair. Though I am looking forward to him getting his shiny summer coat back. Next winter I may try to invest in a blanket for him to prevent the huge winter coat. Will have to see how that goes time and unforeseen occurrence and all.
