Weightless Wednesday...

...Happy Ash Wednesday everyone! Just wanted to check in and say hello AND the best part of this Wednesday? I pulled on a pair of pants I hadn't worn in a long time because last time I wore them they were umm....a little tight and not the best fit BUT this morning, THEY FIT and they were LOOSE! WOOHOO! Who cares how much I've actually lost if I can fit into clothes again that's the most important thing to me!!!

As stated last week, I turned up my workout yesterday and ran an entire mile (its been awhile since I did that) and it felt AWESOME!!! However, I decided that I'd run a mile then walk for 5 minutes then run the rest of the 30 minutes...big mistake, once I stopped, I couldn't get going again. So today, I'm going to just run until I can't run any longer THEN do the walking.

Today is Ash Wednesday, I've been trying to figure out what to give up fpr the past week (no I'm not Catholic, you don't HAVE to be Catholic to give anything up, it is a choice that I make) and this morning when I was taking out the recycle stuff it hit me-I'm giving up peanut butter. For those of you that know me, you know that I absolutely LOVE PB!!! Then yesterday, Adie and I were emailing back and forth on My Fitness Pal discussing PB and I realized how much fat and sugar was in it (although I know some of it is good for you), I'd rather spend my calories in another way. So good-bye PB, I'll see you April 4!

Tonight we're headed to church for soup & salad with the fam then to service at 7...so tell me, what are you giving up for Lent? How's your weight loss going? Do you measure weight by pounds loss or how your clothes fit?

I LOVE peanut butter as well...but can't give up that just yet

I am SO excited for you about your pants! And the PB is a good thing too! I love PB especially the honey kind. opps my mind is wondering! ;) Congrats!!

That's so awesome! good for you. I also love PB. It's hard to stomach wasting 175 calories on 2 tbsp on PB (which is actually a lot if you spread it thin, but still).

Also, awesome on the running! You should definitely try just running until you can't, because it's amazing how far you can actually go. I try to run during a TV program and then walk on commercials -- but sometimes I'm so into it I just keep going!

I forgot to congratulate you on the run! That is awesome!!
I wanted you to check out this site. you can build your own template. I am not sure if it works with blogger or what.

Congrats on getting into those jeans!! I had 7 pairs of jeans that got way too snug, and I'm in 3 of those pairs now. They were all different sizes, because my weight kept shifting two years ago ( I'm sure it had so much to do with our business stress)I measure both ways. I weight myself once a week and then try on pants. And for lent I gave up cussing. It was a bad habit for both C and I.

I bet that felt soooo good to get back into those jeans!! Great job! I lost two pounds last week. It really doesn't mean much since my clothes aren't fitting better. On the plus side, I am getting a handle on my eating habits so that helps a lot.

You already know that I'm giving up soda :) I don't think I could give up PB--but I'm allergic to eggs, so it's my big source of protein in the morning.

And heck YES for pants fitting!
