92.18 miles down, 272.82 to go

I've lost 2 lbs since last Wed.

After talking to Jill and hearing her awesome weight loss success story, I have recommited myself. I decided to not have any chocolate this week as that has been my main downfall the past couple months. I resisted it all day at work! And I tracked my points... So I was pretty pleased with myself.

And I've decided that even if I can't get a full workout in every day I will try to do something. I walked 1 mile with Camille after work today and then rode bikes for a 1/2 mile with Dave tonight. (And yesterday we rode our bikes 4.5 miles...)

I really feel like I'm back to the healthy Katie now.

Although I did eat a half loaf of homemade bread yesterday with David. Maybe he shouldn't make that stuff!

Ok. In trying to lose weight I have somehow gained 7 lbs back. Not good. Not happy. Very sad. Camille & I are doing a fairly good job of working out together 86.18 miles down, 278.82 to go

80.18 miles down, 284.82 to go.

i didn't walk a ton this week but i did start working out with camille officially. we didn't do any cardio thursday night but we did an awesome strength training workout. we were very sore on friday. we set a goal to work out mon, wed and thurs next week with hopefully more cardio.

Drinking Pop

Check out this awesome site about soft drinks. David made me read it last Sunday. This article says that soft drinks should be called "Osteoporosis, Diabetes or Cancer In a Can."

It states that carbonated beverages are 100,000 times more acidic than water. Your stomach takes calcium from your blood to cure the irritation from all this acid, then your blood takes the calcium to replace what it has been robbed of from your bones. If the blood didn't do this, muscular and brain function would be impaired. The result - weak bones, or osteoporosis.

Knowing all this makes it 1,000 times easier to pass up a can of pop. (I just need to remember it every time I think that Sprite might "settle" my stomach - an excuse I've been using lately....)
