Weigh-In Wednesday ~ 5/28/14 ~ Week 7


Whatever you do, work at it wholeheartedly as though you were

 doing it for the Lord and not merely for people.

Colossians 3:23

Monday, after our picnic, we went to our local State Park, Shawnee.  There is a lovely trail around the lake called Lakeshore Trail that is 3.5 miles long.  It is the local spot for 5K's.

While the guys fished (I planned on fishing but ran out of time), my Mom and I walked the trail.  Here are a few pictures.  It was a gorgeous day

Now for the weigh in:  I am shocked!  Even though I got 18 miles in, I wasn't very good with my eating plan.  I was just hoping not to gain when I weighed in this morning.  Imagine my surprise when the scale was down 1.6 pounds!

Not only did I lose 1.6 pounds but I'm now in a the next lower "10's" number if you know what I mean.  Some day I'll be brave enough to post my actual weight :)

Week 7 check-in:

Miles:  18
Total Miles: 92.5

lbs lost:  1.6
Total lost:  12.6

Food Plan:  It wasn't such a great week food-plan wise.  Gotta get back at it!

Thanks for stopping by!
