Have you hit a plateau?

I see people at work and restaurants eating salads, yogurt, fruit, and other healthy foods and notice they're still overweight. T...

Progress!

I'm not quite sure what I've done differently this week but I did my measurements earlier this week and I lost quite a bit!

The only change I can really think of is instead of a banana with almond butter for my morning snack, the last two days I had plain Greek yogurt with blueberries or granola.

The first measurements are from April 23 and the second is from May 9.

chest - 33 1/4"      33 1/4"
waist - 29 7/8"      28 1/2"
belly -  33 1/4"      33 1/2"    (below belly button)
hips -   37"            36 1/2"  
thigh -  22"            22"

Wednesday I took a rest day because I wasn't feeling good - light headed and my legs felt really weak. I ate more than I usually do yesterday too but it was all healthy stuff. I did have a bowl of cereal for dinner but I had Whole Grain Cheerios. Could have been worse!

This weekend was a bit of a write off once again but it wasn't really unhealthy food - just a lot. Went to a bud, spud, and steak on Friday night (accompanied with 2 beers), and last night was turkey dinner for Mother's Day.

I tried jogging for the second time today. The first time was awful - I had no idea what I was doing. This time I did some research before heading out and I'm following the walk/run method. This week I walk for 6 minutes and run for 1. Do this for 3 rounds and you do this 3 times this week. Next week is walk for 5 and run for 2, and so on.

I'm surprised I don't feel more pain in my shin right now because during my run I could feel it getting tight on my right leg. Although tomorrow could be another story! haha. The difference this time is I'm going more for jogging - nice and light, whereas before I was trying to actually run and go fast. I also bought new shoes last week to start running. They were $100 off for Saucony's.

How was your weekend? Did you try something new?
