Mad Monday Weigh In & Weekend Recap...

Happy Memorial day! And Thank you to all who serve and have served!
This weeks weight!?!? 208.2!! Loss of 4.6 lbs!! Awesome! So excited about this. I buckled down last week, got a fill and was super careful with my portions. I exercised pretty good last week too! Struggling with the sugar, not doing great with that, but I am working on moderation in that area!
So my totals are:
66.6 lbs down since 8/22/12!
52.0 lbs down since surgery on 10/15/12!
This is a great hurdle for me! This officially moves me past my 1/2 way point, 63.2 lbs to go! 
Weekend recap! It has been super busy.
Friday was a short day at work because of the holiday weekend. The office closed early so I worked out in the gym there. I ran about 2.5 miles broken up, not all at once, for a total of an hour. Then the elliptical for 15 minutes. Friday night was mello.

Saturday morning I decided on a bike ride. My daughter decided she wanted to go with me, so we went 12.4 miles. My longest bike ride yet! Took about 1 1/2 hours, but it was a good ride! 607 calories burned!
Sunday was a run day. I woke up way early, so I left early. We had a birthday party to throw that afternoon so it was probably a good think I was up early. My run was great!! I have shaved 2 minutes off my mile coming in around 14 minutes per mile (I was running closer to a 16 + minute mile)! I was able to run 3.1 miles Sunday morning! And I'm not exactly sure what the runners high is, but I felt energized almost the entire time! My legs were not sore, my second and third mile was faster than my 1st and my stride felt smooth! It was so great!! 544 calories burned! 
My 7 month bandiversary was about 2 weeks ago. Totally spaced that out. I have reached a couple of NSV's since then! This weekend I noticed these 3. 1) When I would drive my care in the past, my belly came about 1 inch from the steering wheel. 2) Those shorts are jean shorts I haven't worn in years!!
3) I went out and got a new outfit for my nephews birthday party Sunday afternoon. Both the shorts and the halter top are XL, instead of XXXL. This stuff never would have fit before and I would never of worn anything like this!
My nephew turns 10 Tuesday night! So we celebrated Sunday, We had a good time socializing, and celebrating!
Today became a rest day inadvertently. We had errands to run and then I spent time by the pool. All good! And I haven't tracked my calorie intake for a couple of days. I will get back on track tomorrow.
This week is my last week at work. 3 days left. Friday will be a short day and I expect to be home by 11 am.
OK, enough for tonight, I am going to try to get caught up on every one's blogs tomorrow. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
