After catching A.J.’s cold, coping with his overnight wheezing and a last-minute pediatrician visit –  I was not very focused on hitting the gym (I worked out twice) or eating balanced meals. I’ve been exhausted and focused on staying hydrated instead of eating. It’s not the ideal way to lose weight.

So how close am I to my goal of losing 10 pounds by August 3rd?

I was 209.8 pounds when Fitness Friday started in June…

I’ve lost 9.8 pounds since June!

I can’t wait to see how eating vegetarian and getting over this cold helps me this week.
