Fat Ass Friday - Week 18

Link up your blog with Brandy at You Don't Know.

Original Starting Weight: 223
Post Preggie Starting Weight: 200
Last Weeks Weight: 167
Current Weight: 166
Pounds Lost This Week: 1
Total Pounds Lost: 57

Whoo Hoo! 1 pound closer to 60 pounds! Only 3 tiny pounds to go! 31 to go for my ultimate goal. When I first started Spark People I would have whined about how many pounds 31 was. Now, I can't help but think: "That's nothing! You are SO freaking close! You've pushed past the halfway point and only have a third of the way to go."

Meal of the Week:
Killer grilled swiss with parmesan crusted asparagus w/herbed squash and zucchini - Drool. Big thank you to Krod (aka hubby) for making it for me I love you!!

New Me Vs Old Me Moment of the Week:
Saturday I took a glorious morning hike with the hubby. We saw a bunch of trail runners. Old me would have shook her head at the crazy people...New me wanted to join them. I think once I've "graduated" from C25K and the summer ends I'm going to try it out. It just looked like SO much fun. I know, I'm a looney toon.
Freaking Awesome, "I'm making visible progress!" Moment of the Week:
Saturday during nap time I went shopping for a bathing suit (EEK). Found a bathing suit I feel good in (insanity) AND got some new work out clothes in size MEDIUM!! Can't remember the last time I could say that. MEDIUM...sorry had to say it again. Here I am enjoying a jog on my new gear.

Questions of the Week w/backstory:
Sunday - Attempted C25K Week 7 Day 1 and couldn't quite make it to the half way point. Part of it may have been that I partied with my sister the night before at her engagement party. I wasn't well hydrated and I was getting over drinking a little more than I usually do. However I have had this problem jogging during the day before. Usually I jog at night when my boys have gone down for the night. I jog on the well lit sidewalks and ROCK it. This is the third time I've attempted to jog on a jogging trail that runs along the green belt near our home. All three times it's been during daylight hours and all three times I haven't been able to complete my runs.
Anyone have any tips? Should I try starting the C25K over for the days I get to jog during daylight hours? How do you morning joggers prepare for your jog?

In other news:
I apparently am a vampire of some kind. Sunday I tried C25K Week 7 Day 1 - another 25 minutes of straight jogging and I couldn't do it. I couldn't even make it to the half way point. This isn't the first time this has happened. Everytime I try to jog during the day, I SUCK. However, when the sun goes down and I hit the sidewalk...I don't suck so much. I checked on Monday night and did another 25 minute jog. Thursday as great...but I did 20 minutes straight, which is still good. I'm convinced the sun weakens me and brings me down. Silly sun, why do you have to look so pretty and be so mean at the same time?

Haven't gotten a chance to see if I fit back into my wedding dress yet. Hopefully this weekend.

Hope everyone has a fantastic and healthy week!! Hugs!

Way to go. How I wish I was nearing 60 lbs. Okay, can he make me one of those sandwiches? It looks delicious!

you look great!!!! and i'm spoiled on my runs - we run in an temperature controlled building. So when I have to do a "real" run outside - it throws me off.
