Wednesday Shrinkvivor Check-in

Shrinkvivor Challenge at the Sisterhood!
Lets get right to it, since I am super excited about this week's check in.
Starting Weight: 213.8
Week 1: 213
Week 2: 210.2
Week 3: 206.6
Change: 3.6 lbs
Total Lost: 7.2 lb
I am having a great week. I doubled my weight lost this week. I am working really hard at making better food choices. Staying away from any beverages that are not coffee and water. I should probably try to cut back on the coffee too, but I need it in the morning. That and I like it a lot! I stayed away from the fast food, which is getting easier every day and I drank all my water. I didn't get in all my fruits and veggies but I did make an attempt most days. I need to keep working on that one. I ran my fastest mile this week at 12:43. I want to work on that too, I would like to be faster, but I figure just getting out there no matter how fast you go is better than just sitting there.
I have had a really good week. My mood has been really good and I haven't been as tired as I was a few weeks ago. I have even been good at remembering to take my iron supplements, and that is saying something because I hate them. If you have never had the pleasure of taking them they make your belly feel really yucky for a couple hours. I did discover if I take them at night I can avoid the yucky belly feeling.
All in all it has been a great week. There have been some huge changes happening in my life this week, mostly work related (all good), and I know that feeling better about myself has helped me handle them with stride. I am so looking forward to next weeks challenge. I am headed up North to our cabin this weekend with Gary and my sister and her boyfriend and I am determined not to let this time away undermine my success so far!
