Weigh In - Week 18

Fitness-wise, this week was pretty bleak.  That's why I woke up this morning, bright and early (thanks to a fussy baby) and went for a serious power walk.  My October pledge is to reignite my walking regimen.  I walked for almost 7 weeks straight through June and July.  Now that the weather is cooler here in Dallas, there is no excuse.  Once again, I'll be walking 4-5 mornings a week thanks to my awesome husband who will be on kid duty while I'm gone.

This week, I also stuck (mostly) to our 80% raw eating plan.  The one BIG splurge this week is that I had 3 beers during the week.  Once for an Oktoberfest gathering, once on my porch with my family and once when I had some company over for dinner.  But I'm still very very happy with the juicing, which I do every morning and my raw food plan.  I love making raw meals because its quick prep, very little clean up and I don't have to turn on a stove or an oven, which heats up my house.  The one thing I really need to keep better track of is how my food is being combined.  I try to mostly eat fruit alone but it doesn't always happen.  I try to mostly eat food categories on their own without mixing but it doesn't always happen.  Re-committing to proper food combining will be key in the coming months.  When I properly combine my food, the weight drops off very easily.

This week, I didn't lose any weight.  I didn't gain any either.  So I'm holding steady at a 32 pound loss since June first.  Jack, my husband, has joined me on my juicing and raw eating plan as well.  He also started drinking 2 litres of water every morning.  With only these two changes, Jack has lost 25 pounds since June first.  Amazing, right?  I'm so happy for him!

Pounds lost this week:  0
Total pounds lost: 32
