Weighing in and taking names!

Weigh-in was today and I'm down 1.4 pounds! {wow, can you tell I was on vacation? I have no idea why I thought Tuesday was Friday (my actual weigh-in day). So strange....}

Two more weeks to go in the DietBets and I'm 98% there.  What a motivator!

I have been doing such a great job and haven't been slacking at all in the diet department.  I've tracked everyday with MyFitnessPal and stayed under my calories.  I've made some great foods and been really happy with my nutrition - I'm not just limiting, I'm eating all sorts of healthy stuff and a great variety.

I could be doing better with my activity, but we're "on vacation" and there is fishing and boating that get in the way.  I would like to say that I finally finished C25K Week 4!!!!  Whew! That was a hard one!  I don't think I could have done it without my friends Journey.  As "Don't Stop Believing" came on I gave a silent prayer of thanks - actually, I'm pretty sure I made a not-so-silent gasp of, "Oh, thank you!"

I am determined to finish and be able to complete a 5K in a decent time by September.  We've been setting up a team for the Lupus Walk and I will be registering for the 5K.  Although my suggestion of, "Whupus Some Lupus" didn't make the team name, I am still rooting for it to make it to the t-shirts as our slogan. :)


Let me show off some lovely food we've been eating.  I wish with the commotion of the kids I would have snapped a shot of our Sausage, Peppers, and Onions Pizza, because it was tasty.

I did grab a shot of our dinner last night.  Turkey Burgers with Onion Rings.  Yes, onion rings.  Weight Watchers had a recipe for them that called for 2 large onions, 2 tbs flour, 1/4 c egg substitute, and 1/3 c breadcrumbs.  Are you kidding me!?!  We only cut up one onion and there was no way I could get the breading to stretch that far!  I picked out a couple lightly coated ones from the first batch for myself and loaded up the ones for the rest of the family.  They were delicious, though.

We've got a busy day tomorrow, so I hope I'll get a chance to try out Week 5 of C25K. I can't see how I'll push through when Week 4 is still a struggle, but positive thoughts and you never know!!! If anyone else in on MFP, I'd love some more motivation and support at 2Momma2!!!
