I Survived Easter!

I was pretty worried about this week's weigh-in. Holidays are kind of stressful when you are trying to lose weight, but I was able to stay within my calories on Easter. I had to be especially mindful of what I was eating because my weigh-in was the next day and I knew I didn't have any time to try and make up for it. It felt like a great accomplishment to be able to do that. It reinforces the changes I have made. I lost 1 pound this week. Hooray!

I went for a run yesterday. It was beautiful outside. I was able to run 2.27 miles. When my watch beeped at 2 miles I just wanted to keep running. What a change! I never dreamed I would enjoy running again.

We had an Easter Egg Hunt at church Saturday and I wanted to share a picture of the cupcakes I made. This is one of my newest hobbies. I've always enjoyed artistic things and decorating cupcakes kind of falls into that category. The kids seemed to enjoy them.

Today marks the end of Week 1of the SparkPeople challenge I am a part of. I need to be a little more serious about it this week. This week's challenge is to workout 15 minutes a day, exercising each muscle group (upper, lower and core) for 5 minutes. Last week's was to do 30 minutes of cardio every day and I only did that 4 out of the 7 days. I will do better this week.

On another note, I need a new devotional to start. Any suggestions?

  1. Audrey good for you on the pound lost. The cupcakes are adorable too. I am sure the kids loved them. Keep up the exercise and running and I see you have the initiative. Good job. Also, I downloaded a devotional for dieters I think from Amazon. Let me check and I will share the name with you. Again good job and God bless.
