Old Waffles

Last week was a super successful week! I lost 4 pounds, bringing me back down to 235 lbs. The first full week of my August challenge was a success!

In keeping with my routine, here's a refresher of the goals I am working toward:

August's Goals
  • Break out of the 230's (5 lbs. to go!)
  • Track calories for 6/7 days a week (Monday done!)
  • Exercise 4/7 days a week (Monday done!)
  • Drink 64 ounces of water daily (Sunday & Monday done!)
  • Get 7-8 hours of sleep a day (Monday done!)

This morning, I woke up early for some Wii Fit Yoga. It was a great morning for Yoga because I was feeling pretty stiff. I really limbered up afterwards, and I felt good for starting the day off with some exercise.

I didn't go grocery shopping yesterday like I usually do on Sundays, so I am fairly proud of myself for finding some things to eat today. I managed to find and eat two frozen waffles (after I put them in the toaster, of course) for breakfast. I think those two waffles had been in our freezer for nearly two months, regardless; they filled me up and didn't make me sick. Win!

I had half a package of ramen noodles for lunch with a side salad and cantaloupe. Not so bad for not having any groceries! My husband and I will be grocery shopping immediately after work. A home without groceries is a recipe for disaster. It would end up being an excuse for eating out.

Speaking of eating out, we don't have groceries so we have to eat out for dinner tonight. (See what I mean?!)

Here's the rest of our dinner plan for the week:

M – Subway
T – Fish with Corn and Zucchini
W – Grilled Chicken Salad
T – Pizza and Salad
F – Pasta
S – Color Run in Buffalo

I am pretty excited for our color run this weekend. I'm not quite sure what we're doing afterward so I'm not quite sure what dinner will be that day. Pasta on Friday, though, is a must. We will be meeting our friends out at the Cheesecake Factory in Buffalo that night. I have been dreaming of their pasta ever since the decision was made. I absolutely love everything about the Cheesecake Factory!

As for my workouts, this is what I have planned for now:

M - Yoga (done!)
T - Run
W - Yoga
T - Run
F - Rest
S - 5K!!!

This Saturday will be my first ever Color Run! Experienced Color Runners, please give me any tips you can share! :)


  1. Have fun at the color run! You will do so well!

  2. Hi! I just found your blog and am enjoying it! I ran the color run in June in Cleveland. One thing I found is that this race really had to be just a fun run because most people were walking the 5k. It was challenging for my husband and I to keep finding ways to run around people and not get stuck! We had a great time and I hope you do too! One tip I have is to be sure to find the free photo booth after the race. Professional photographers took some great pics that we downloaded for free after the race!
