I’m down 2.2 lbs this week. It was a tough one, I seemed to be starving all week and had to constantly check myself before I attempted to eat the fridge. Judging by the results, I was successful!
A couple of cool things to discuss:
I’m starting to crave new fitness challenges so I signed up for a 5K run! It’s taking place on March 10th and I’m torn between being really proud of myself and scared stiff. I’m running a 5K on the treadmill on a bi-weekly basis but I know that running outside is a whole different animal. Not to mention that running outside in MARCH, in CANADA is a challenge in and of itself! I’ll be signing up with a bunch of people from my Weight Watchers group and my uncle has reluctantly happily agreed to join me. I have a goal to finish under 45 minutes, which is neither fast nor impressive but since it’s the first time I’ve attempted anything like this, I think it’s a reasonable goal.
Another cool thing is that I’m trying this new thing. This new thing where I TRY new foods. I’m an extremely picky eater. I don’t like my food to inter-mingle on my plate and I have a laundry list of things that I won’t eat (mushrooms, pork, olives). I have changed so much in the last fourteen months, more of these changes being mental than physical, that I thought I should throw caution to the wind and open myself up to new foods. This weekend I tried sushi. California rolls to be exact, which I know that not everyone even considers sushi, but since I don’t like fish, it was a big step. You know what? It was delicious! I had some with crab and some with avocado and loved every bite. I also tried smoked salmon and enjoyed the heck out of that too! I was so….impressed with myself! I’m going to try to find more opportunities to try new things every week, starting next week with eggplant. I’ve eaten it in the past, but I don’t think I gave it a fair shake so I have stuffed mini-eggplants on the menu.
Wish me luck!
