Week 8: Journey to Fitness Celebration!!

I don't know what happened but the scale isn't lying because I feel good and all my clothes fit! This morning, the scale said the following:
Weight loss: 2.6 lbs (total 10lbs!!!!)
Body fat loss: 0.4% (total 1.8%)
I don't know what happened this week but I think the heat helped. The only thing I did differently this week was increase my fruits and veggies like crazy. I've been eating them for snacks throughout the entire day. Watermelon, canteloupe, carrots, cucumbers, apples etc. I even worked out 4 times this week, instead of 6. I even had dessert each night (ice cream or cake). Yippee!!!
Last night we had a family run. Gary pushed Kai and I pushed Koen. I think we will be buying a nice double jogging stroller (and I mean really nice) and then we can train together. If Gary pushes the kids, then we will be even. Train for what? We'll start with a 10km one and go from there...Gary has never run a half marathon and I think he would do really well with some training so we will see! Gary's done school next week so we will have tons of time to run together. He still has exams etc but still, my husband will be home for 2 months!
Also, I just need to say that Koen slept through the night. 9pm til 6am. I knew he could do it!
What a wonderful, fabulous start to the day!

    way to go!

  3. that is AWESOME!!!! congratulations!!! :) (i can't wait to hit the 10lbs mark)

    what kind of stroller are you guys thinking of getting?

  4. We were going to get the double BOB but I chickened out from its price. I wish I could do it! I just got a Schwinn double jogger off of craigslist instead which works well for running but not alot of storage for groceries etc.
