Goal Achieved...

This morning I got on the scale to see 199.0! One of my goals 2 months ago was to get under the 200 pound mark before my marathon training, talk about right to the day!:) I celebrated with my first cheat meal in over a month and half! Full on Mexican goodness! Cheese Quesadillas, chicken nachos, tortilla chips, cheese dip, rice, beans, and a burrito! Man was it good! Man, was I stuffed! Did I mention it was good? It was! In fact, I haven't eaten since that late lunch, just not hungry!:)

Tomorrow starts my 18 week marathon training. Here's the outline of my first week.

Mon: Strength (Chest/Biceps/Core)
Tue: Strength (Back/Hamstrings/Core) + 3 mile easy
Wed: Strength (Shoulders/Triceps/Core) + 3 Mile easy
Thur: Strength (Quads/Calves/Core) + 3 Mile tempo
Fri: REST
Sat: Cross Training (Bike)
Sun: 6 mile Long Run
Total Mileage: 15

Should be a fun week! My nutrition will jump back on the clean eating wagon all week and hopefully I can drop another 1-3 pounds pounds by the end of the week. With the added cardio it should help the weight loss even more. I've lost 13 pounds since June first.

Its been a great weekend spending time together as a family just goofing around. I hope everyone else had a great weekend as well! Make it a great Monday morning! - Jason

You are the man! I knew it wouldn't be long for you to reach your goal. That is how I celebrate also. Nothing better than a good burrito.
