Week 18

Good Day to all of my blog friends! I am so glad you are a part of my journey and life!

The scale is moving so slow...down 0.6lbs this week.
I am trying really hard to be happy about this because I know I am working hard and sticking to my plan! Besides I had not seen any movement on the scale for the last 2 weeks until today and it has only been 4 full days of sticking to the 1800 calories.

I have been eating according to an article I read this week at the Runners World website. I can honestly say that I have had alot more energy since increasing the protein portion in my diet. It is a really informative article if you are a runner. It suggests eating 50% of your calories from Carbohydrates, 25% from Fat and the other 25% from Protein. I was definitely lacking in the protein area until I read this. I have been keeping track of my food intake at the Prevention website since Wednesday. They give you a great pie graph showing the % breakdown and it is free to join! Anyone interested in checking it out it is in the section My Health Tracker, you just complete a profile and start tracking. You can not only track your food but weight, mood, measurements and more.

I don't know if it is a coincidence or not but I ran my fastest 5km this week at just over 35 minutes.


  1. Woo hoooo, chicka!! 5k at 35 minutes?? That is AMAZING!!! Go go go girlfriend!

    And I think you are going to see some incredible results.. if you are just on day 4 and that scale has you losing 1/2 lb... HELLOOOOOO momentum! You watch it keep on going!!
