Weigh-in Wednesday

Don't have a heart attack - yes it is me, and yes I posted yesterday...amazing I know.  Just priming the pump - trying to get some words flowing freely...not there yet but I will let you know when I am.

Weigh in today - I was down another 3.6 pounds. So in the two weeks since the competition began, I have lost 5.8 pounds. That is unheard of for me - I am really happy about it. Which is good, because that is what carried me through my run and the ab class from hell this morning. I haven't heard from my sister with the results from her family yet, so at this point I am winning!

I find that I am not struggling much with the eating, and that any struggling actually stems only from the fact that healthy food is low in the house right now and payday isn't until Saturday. But overall, I am watching my carb intake and not really eating sweets (I had a couple of bites of apple pie last night - no biggie) and loving the moderation much more than simply erasing things completely from my diet. I am really focusing on listening to my body and feeding it what it wants and needs. With all of the working out I am doing, I find that I naturally crave more protein, and so I have been trying to keep that supplied. 

Question for you all: when I am taking two rest days from exercise each week, does it matter if they are consecutive or separate?


  1. great job morgan...last night, today. you are doing great with the weight loss.
    If I were to take two days of rest I would take them seperately. two days in a row can lead to lethargy.

  2. Hey kid! Lookit you! Nice job with the loss. As for the rest days, if you are training for something big, like a race, your body could use two days in a row to prepare. But for regular every day activity, I don't think it matters much. Welcome back!

  3. I am by no means an expert, but I find that if I work out M-F and take the weekend off, getting back to the swings of things on Monday is tough.

    Woot for the loss! :D
