This week has been awesome. I can’t describe it any other way. This week has been a popcorn-a-palooza over here! I have been totally digging the Nutrisystem butter flavored popcorn. It’s been a big TV week for me. I’m a reality show junkie through and through, and I’ve loved sitting down for my shows with a bowl of delish popcorn! One of my BFFs from high school was actually on BRAVO this week! He was the guest bartender on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Sunday, so you can bet your buns I was munching on my popcorn during the show!
So if you’ll recall, I (presumably) sprained my ankle early last week. I babied it for a good 4 days, and I have only gone running once since then. I’ve done Pilates and other low impact activities since then, though! Lots of ab work over here. Yeowch! My run was a good one. I didn’t get close to my personal best time that I achieved on the run that injured me, but that’s okay! Here’s the stats for my run:
I’m pretty pleased with it! I really could feel the difference, though. Taking a week long break from intense cardio is no joke! It felt good to get out there again, though. I made a promise to myself that if I felt pain in my ankle, I’d slow down and walk it, but it held up okay!
I finally had the idea to put a timer app on my phone so I could get a true side by side picture of my progress, and here you have it!
I can’t get over my “before” side shot. Oh my GOD I can’t believe I let it get that bad. I am so incredibly happy with how I look, and I can’t wait to see how much more I can lose! Also, if you’re starting a weight loss journey, I highly recommend you take these before pictures. Remember my first Nutrisystem post? It took so much guts to post that before side-by-side. But now, I’m so glad to be able to really SEE how far I’ve come!
The Weigh In
This week, I weighed in at 182.4 pounds, down 1.4 pounds from last week! That brings my total weight loss to 25 pounds! Incredible.
Andrew weighed in with a 2 pound loss for the week! That brings his total to 25 pounds as well! He’s doing so well, and I couldn’t be more proud of him.
