Weekly update & belated weekly update 10/8

Hi guys!

Sorry I didn't check in last week. Things have been crazy busy! I am hosting my own challenge and try to spend any free time chatting with my challengers about how they are doing. Which, if you are wondering...they are doing GREAT! One of my challengers is down 10 lbs in 2 weeks, so awesome! I can't wait to see their final results in 2 more weeks. I love that my challengers are holding me accountable and pushing me to stay on track too!

 My loss over the last two weeks has been -4.2 lbs!
I am thinking my loss will start to slow down a bit. I am totally okay with that, I have lost 57 lbs in a little over 4 months and couldn't be happier with where I am at. However, I am not going to use that as an excuse or lose focus. I am staying on track, eating just as clean & working out just as hard. Especially during this time of year with all the Holiday temptations! Everywhere I look is PUMPKIN, PUMPKIN, PUMPKIN!! ahhhh! This is my weakness :( I love pumpkin. The end cap at Target the other day had pumpkin everything...there is pumpkin Pop-Tarts?! WTF! So...what did I do?? I headed over to the home supply area and grabbed myself a pumpkin candle and some pumpkin room spray! As soon as I got home my house smelt like a pumpkin Pop-Tart...without all the calories! awesome!
Over the weekend I participated in something I NEVER would of done before, especially at 220 lbs! I ran in a mud run with my company. I wasn't worried about how long it took me to complete, I just wanted to complete it. And I did! And I ran way more than I thought I would of been able to thanks to two awesome coworkers who kept me going! Here are some pictures from my adventure!
We also celebrated my daughters 4th birthday over the weekend with family & friends! Sweets are my weakness. I was so proud to not be tempted by the cupcakes I baked the night before or the sheet cake calling my name the day of the party....and still calling my name from my refrigerator. See, the thing is...I don't feel deprived by not having these things. I feel in control. And I love it!

My food prep was super simple & didn't go as "planned" this week. But it still got done, so that is all that matters! I did simple egg muffins with frozen spinach & egg whites for 2 days. Then grabbed some sprouted bread & mixed berries out of the freezer for 2 days. Lunch was baked chicken, sautéed brussel sprouts & yellow squash for 2 days & lean ground turkey, sautéed spinach & bell peppers for two days. I cooked up some hardboiled eggs for snacks and grabbed a stalk of celery to eat with almond butter as another snack option. I don't have a picture this week...since it happened in stages and all just sort of came together with everything else going on this weekend.
