Off to a good start...

Well, I was off to a good start this morning with this yummy breakfast. I had awesome blueberries and strawberries with a healthy dollop of Chobani greek yogurt....and a hard-boiled egg on the side. It was so good.

I had a good run/walk this morning. I got up before the rest of the family and headed outside. Today's workout was a 3 min. run, 90 sec. walk, 5 min. run, 2.5 min. walk (x2 for a total of 16 min. of running). I did that and added some more walking onto that. I did a total of 45 min. and went approximately 3 - 3.5 miles. I use Nike+ but I don't think it is calibrated correctly. The Nike+ app said I went 3.5 miles. When I got home, I checked on google and it looked like it was close to 3 miles. So not sure which one is correct.

Yesterday I made some monster cookies that I had seen made on Live with Regis and Kelly. The cookies had chopped up Heath bar, Rolos, mini marshmallows, mini chocolate chips, crushed pretzel and crushed townhouse crackers. A good combination of salty and sweet. I made them for my family and company to enjoy. I did very well yesterday avoiding them. Today, not so much. 2 cookies were my lunch today. Dinner was a grilled cheese sandwich and grazing on more cookies. Ugh. Not very healthy today.

Tuesday morning is my weigh-in for the Biggest Loser contest. I hope I can get it together for the next two days so I can have a good weightloss on Tuesday. Tomorrow I'm meeting a friend to run and bike. We might do a duathlon in 2 weeks...2 mile run, 10 mile bike, 2 mile run. Tomorrow we will see if we are ready!

Fitness Goals

With the beautiful weather lately here in the Midwest, it inspires me to set some fitness goals for summer. I'm in week 4 of a couch to 5k program. I hoping to be able to run a 5k by the end of June. Mid-June, I am thinking about doing a duathlon - 2 mile run (or walk), 10 mile bike, 2 mile run (again!). This weekend I'll be out on the road training for this. Wish me luck!

I've lost 4.4 lbs this week doing a weightloss contest at our gym. I weigh in again on Tuesday so here's hoping I'll be down some more!
