Update - Stacy

Well I believe it's my turn to give an update. I have been going to the gym regularly, at least 4 times a week, and I have been doing at least 45 minutes of cardio. My trainer recently started me on a new cardio workout where I alternate running and walking. Wow, running is hard! I can only run a little over 2 minutes right now. (Amanda, kudos on the running!) For the workout I do a 10 min warm up walking at least 3.5MPH then start with a minute of running then a minute of walking doing 10 of each, then finish with a 10-15 walk at 3.5MPH and a 3% incline. I guess it's working because I have lost another 4.5 lbs since last week! Now if I could just get the eating under control. The last few weeks have consisted of church events, family get-togethers and eating out a few times, fun for the taste buds, bad for the stomach! I don't know about everywhere else, but in Southeast Arkansas everything we do is centered around food. Anyway, losing the 4.5lbs this week will hopefully keep me on track with the eating right, I definitely don't want to gain it back!


  1. Way to go Stacy! Keep it up! I totally understand about the eating out..everything in our family revolves around eating. We eat to celebrate, we eat to mourn, we eat just because we haven't seen each other in two days. The thing I'm learning is what I can eat when we go out that doesn't ruin my plan. You will figure it out too. Can't wait to see us all at the finish line!

  2. Great job! I agree with eating out...it's such a common social activity that it's hard to avoid it. Just make sure to make good decisions, but still enjoy the food and company.

    You are doing an awesome job! Keep it up!

  3. Eating out is the devil, that is all we do here. Sometimes I feel like the only social things we do are eat out, go have drinks or watch a movie (which usually involves the other 2). So I completely understand Stacy! Great job!
