it's good to lose some things... extra pounds. :)

i weighed in after yoga class last night and was pleasantly surprised. here's my stats:

current weight: 133 pounds

goal weight: 125 pounds

pounds to lose: 8 pounds

that a 1.5 loss since last week. woohoo! i AM making progress, even though it's slow. i guess slow is the best way, though. although, i think my diet needs some tweaking... i'm training for another marathon with my husband and i just feel so tired during my runs. i have a feeling i'm not eating enough calories to support my running activities, but i just don't know how much is too much. any suggestions?

yoga made beautiful

okay, yoga is already beautiful and wonderful, but why not make it a little more beautiful? i'd like to get a new yoga mat because my current mat is about 5 years old and is getting kind of old and crusty... ewwww. after searching the internet, i found these two that i really love.


...or brown?

delicious! if you want one, too, you can find both mats here.

plus one half

well, i weighed myself yesterday and i had gained half a pound. i was grateful it wasn't more, though. on the 4th we had some friends and family over for a BBQ. there were three different desserts present and i'm not going to lie to you... i had a full serving of each one, plus more. yikes. so here's my stats as of now:

current weight: 134.5

goal weight: 125

pounds to lose: 9.5

i'll just keep plugging away. i'm leaving for washington in a couple of weeks and my goal is to lose at least a pound a week until i leave. i'm also going to need to have a plan of attack for when i'm in washington because when i stay at ben's parents house, all reason and self-control just fly out the window and i can't seem to stop eating. they have so much junk food around... all the time. at christmas time we were there for just over two weeks and i think i gained something like 8 pounds. yeah, totally ridiculous, i know. but i will prevail this time!

ben and i ran the provo freedom run 10k on the morning of the 4th of july. it was great. i absolutely love running. it's definitely my favorite way to exercise and i love the way i feel after a really hard run. you can click here to read my full report of the race on my family blog.
