Week 4, Day 23 #BigGirlsDoItRunning

Day 23 of #BigGirlsDoItRunning

If you missed the previous week, check out the label "Wilder Way" at the bottom of the post and it will get you to all the previous posts!

Recap of Day 22:

I had my usual eggs for breakfast.  Nothing special about that.  I do need to find something that will give me just as much energy though to mix it up.

Lunch I had a Jimmy John's Unwhich Turkey with extra lettuce and then I ran to the store across the street and got watermelon.  The melon is amazing this year!!

Dinner we had some baked chicken with some dry rub and a swipe of bbq sauce.  It was amazing.  We also had quinoa.  It was a great side dish to go with the chicken and something different than our usual side.

Hubby and I also went for a walk/jog.  Made my 2nd best time!  I'm happy to report that I'm just a little sore today from it.  Not really in my knees either.  He was teasing me on my wogging style but I told him it works for me and that's all that matters.  He can go at his own speed and I will do mine.  




I'm sporting my "Running Sucks" shirt by Jasinda Wilder!  I can't wait to get a tank top too!

Weigh In Day 23:
242.3lbs
Woo Hoo!  Motivation to keep going.  I honestly thought I was going to be up this morning.  I just had that "feeling" but seeing a loss again definitely keeps me pushing harder.


Don't forget to grab the book and get yourself on this amazing journey!

Week 4, Day 22 #BigGirlsDoItRunning

Day 22 of #BigGirlsDoItRunning

If you missed the previous week, check out the label "Wilder Way" at the bottom of the post and it will get you to all the previous posts!

I know I once again missed a few days, but the dance show was this weekend and it was a crazy day at work on Friday because it was the last day of school.  I was running around with my head cut off from Friday through Sunday.

I didn't walk Friday night because I didn't want to do anything accidentally to ruin my legs/knees for the dance show.  Saturday, no walk because obviously the show was that day and I was there almost the entire day for practice and for the actual show itself.  

I did go wogging (walk/jogging) yesterday with my new shoes!  I did great!  It felt good, my knee didn't hurt and I was able to cut my time again.


New week starts today!

Week 4:
THE CHALLENGE:

Cut out ALL sugar and refined carbs.  

This is something I've been doing already so this week will be another (hopefully) easy week for me. 

She states that you can still have, Low Carb Mission wraps, Brown rice, sweet potatoes, sprouted breads, Dreamfield brand pasta, oats, quinoa, nut flours, and carbs that naturally occur in fruits, nuts, veggies, and beans.

THE MOVEMENT:

Still move three times a week, but make sure 1 of those times is actually walking, jogging, or wogging.  

*Obviously won't have a problem with that since I do this 5 times a week or more anyways!

Week 4 Start Stats:

Weight: 243.2
Down a few ounces from my Friday weigh in!  I'll take it.  Weekends are always hard for me and I didn't do awful!



Week 1- Week 4



Side view.

Again, I don't see a difference between week 3 & 4 but I definitely see a difference from the 1st week!

Don't forget to grab the book and get yourself on this amazing journey!

Week 3, Day 18 #BigGirlsDoItRunning

Day 18 of #BigGirlsDoItRunning

If you missed the previous week, check out the label "Wilder Way" at the bottom of the post and it will get you to all the previous posts!

I know I missed day 17.  I completely got caught up in work and forget and didn't remember until super late at night and by then I was editing my book which is past it's deadline for getting to the editor soooooooo, I kept editing.  

I did go for a walk last night!  Did well for just a walk   Hubby went with me so it was nice to have someone there but we both had one earbud in which I think helped me keep pace to my music that I normally listen too.  I wish I could jog, but my knee's still bothering me a little and since the dance show is this Saturday, I figure I should take it easy so I can do my best for that.  Then I can push myself again.  

Dinner was thrown together, just some steak and vegetables but it was seasoned well and it was good.  

Week 3:
The Challenge: 

Cut out all non-stevia-sweetened soda and sugary drinks.  Stick with no sugar until dinnertime.  Stick with the 30 minutes of movement 3 times a week.  Keep tracking your weight everyday.  

*I don't have any problem doing this since I usually only drink water anyways.  I've been grabbing a Bai Water every so often at the store but that's stevia sweetened so I'm fine with that.  So this week seems super easy to me.  I can say that if I was just starting I know this would be super hard, but since I've been doing this since January, I'm golden.

Weight:
244.7
Back down!  I hope to keep on this track.  I'm determined to lose 10lbs in 22 days.  That's a lofty goal and if I don't hit it, I'll be okay, but I'd love to do it.  I have an author event and I'd love to be down again.  

Breakfast was eggs, green peppers, and green onions.  Today hubby added a little of the left over steak into the eggs.  It was super yummy.  

You're probably asking if I'm sick of eggs in the morning.  Kinda, but when I don't eat them I don't have a good morning so for now until I find something that works as good as the eggs do for me energy wise, I'll keep eating them.  

A reminder of what book my lifestyle change is based on:
