McFatty Monday - Week 2

Week 1 didn't go so bad. I'm down almost 2 pounds - could be normal fluctuation but at least it didn't go in the other direction, right?

I really tried to make healthier food choices. High points were lots of salads and veggies, low points were a bag of coconut M&Ms and a dessert hamburger and fries made out of cake and brownie.

Turns out I do need more structure to my exercise plan. My new goal is to run the Plymouth Fall Festival 5k September 12th, a little less than 16 weeks away. I'll be starting the Couch-to-5k program (there's an app for that!) It's a 9 week program so I think I'll just put the first week on repeat for a while and see what happens, then July 11th it's go time. I hope by then to have shed several pounds and to be able to fit into my old exercise clothes. The beauty of this plan is it's only 20-30 min, 3 days a week - I think I can handle that.

Here's where I'm at:

Today's weight - 141.3
Today's BMI - 22.8
Goal weight - 130
Goal BMI - 21.0
Total weight lost - 1.7


  1. Well done!!! I'll have to check out the couch to 5k plan. I've been doing a '10 week beginner runner' plan but it maxes out at 20 minutes of running, which for me falls way short of the 5k. Anyway if we're in the area I will definitely register for that race. :) I did OK this week except the wedding dinner/cake made me go way over...but I think you have to give yourself some wiggle-room right? :)

  2. GOOD FOR YOU!!! 2 lbs in a week is an awesome start!

  3. Yay! I love running... it is so good for you physically and emotionally. Good luck with the training!

  4. Way to go!! Just having one bag of the Coconut M & M's shows a major amount of control, those things are awesome!!
