Wiggle War Recap: Week 1

So here I am, one week after I declared War on The Wiggle.  It hasn't been easy and I've been far from perfect in my efforts, but I am definitely seeing progress. 

According to my scale (which has never worked right and I'm seriously considering buying a new one), I'm down a couple of pounds - which is probably water weight, but I'm not complaining since my pants seem to be a little less tight. I was pretty good about watching what I ate (if you don't count going out to eat a few too many times over the weekend). And I managed to drag my butt out in the cold and run a whopping total of 6 miles and The Husband and I logged another 4 miles walking on Friday night.

If this is wrong, I don't want to be right.
Obviously, I have a lot of room for improvement, but I'm not entirely displeased. 6 miles beats the crap out of 0 miles.  Eating better is better than eating like a teenager.

Week 2 of the Wiggle War is going much better.  The Husband and I went grocery shopping on Sunday and restocked our bare kitchen, so we've been eating at home (a huge win). I've already logged 6 miles this week (and my speed and endurance seem to be improving a little bit) and I know I'll be adding to that total before the week is over. Most importantly, I'm continuing to feel better and better - which to me is the most important part of the Wiggle War.

And now, just because, I'll leave you with a gratuitous rabbit picture!
Spot - half in the bag!

Luvs bunnies!!! And the other pic...that looks like a lot of the same type of stuff I eat! My war starts Saturday with our first official weigh in! (which will take place BEFORE we go to the grocery store since it's good for shock value)

That plate looked delicious! 6 miles definitely beats 0. Keep up the good work!
