This is the third week of the Ready For Summer Challenge and The Fat Smash Diet. I am more than thrilled with my 2 pound loss this week. That makes a 16 pound loss in 3 weeks. Crazy!! Now all I have to do is NOT.GIVE.UP. That's the hardest part.
“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”
Hubs and I went for another bike ride on Saturday. We biked for 1.5 hours and covered 10 miles. Yes, that's pretty slow, but I don't care. I invited a bunch of people to go on the canal path for a walk/bike and then out to dinner after. I was shocked that 16 people showed up! They all loved my bike :-) I still need to get a basket for her, but here's another photo of her...
I had a yummy salad at the restaurant on the canal.
And then we all decided to walk over about a half mile to this new frozen yogurt place. It was amazing. It's all self serve. You get your bowl and pick out your flavor (or flavors). The nutrition info is listed on each one!! And there were fat free, sugar free, and lactose free options. Then there are two stations with every topping you can imagine Including fresh fruit which they chop every hour.
They charge by weight which I loved because I could control my portion size. You can put as little (or as much) as you want in there. I got fat free cheesecake yogurt (120 cal per cup) and topped it with fresh mango, strawberries, raspberries and toasted wheat germ, flax seed, some graham cracker crumbles and a teeny bit of dark chocolate shavings and raw slivered almonds. So gooood!
We already have plans for another bike ride next Saturday. And we will probably walk over and get frozen yogurt again :-)
This week the Ready For Summer Mini Challenge was to visit all the challengers blogs. I managed to do it! And was really impressed by so many of the posts. I am constantly encouraged by February Fitness Project. I love how she tracks her calories and fills us in on where she stands. Her motivational pictures are great. And she is so close to goal (well, compared to me) and yet she is dropping pounds. Just goes to show that it IS possible. She also posts some great recipes.
Also Raeesa Getting Fit pushes me to keep going. She has some great progress photos that show all this hard work is well worth it!
Seeing other people push through this crazy weight-loss thing reminds us all that we CAN do it. And we will!
