This is hosted by Mari at Bookworm with a View. 

I've jumped back into my quest to be healthier and lighter.  The month of December was hard for me and especially the two weeks around Christmas and New Year's Day, but on January 2 I jumped back in.  Not the first, I had a cold and just wasn't too motivated!

Last week:
Ran 21 miles
Walked 2 miles
Zumba 20 minutes
Bellydancing 30 minutes
P90X Yoga 90 minutes

I used My Fitness Pal to track  my calories and ended the week above my goal by 145 calories.  For 7 days that felt pretty good.  I made myself be very honest about everything I ate and recorded even one chip here or there.  On Friday when I over did eating I decided I needed to workout again even though I had run in the morning.  I did not manage to get a long run in, my longest was just under 5 miles.  I ran with friends outside one day and the rest were on the treadmill.  I made sure I did something fitness wise everyday to try to set myself up for making exercise a habit in my life.

Superbowl 10K- Feb 5
West End St. Patrick's Day 5K-March 18
Emmaus 4 Miler- April 1

Possibly doing the a half marathon on April as well.  I need to make a decision as I know it sells out, but I'm just not sure I'm ready for it.

Goals this week:
Stay under my calories.
Make sure at least one day a week has a strength component
make a decision about the half marathon.


  1. Great job this week Jill! Sounds like you really did well with the food log!

  2. What a terrific week! I really enjoy the notion of a 10K for Superbowl Sunday!

  3. You're doing awesome! Keep up the great work. :)

  4. Looks like an awesome week! I'm scared to record my calorie intake :-)

  5. Oh wow - you did fantastic! What a great week!
