This is not a sprint, it's a marathon

Tomorrow kicks off week three of BodyBack, which means it has been two full weeks of tracking my food (using MyFitnessPal this time around) and consistent workouts.
The past two mornings I have woken up feeling lighter and I said to Eddie that no matter what happens on weigh in day tomorrow, I feel good and I need to remember that.
Although tomorrow is my "official" weigh in day, I decided to step on this morning and I am down 4.2 lbs which is on target for a 2lb a week loss.  However, I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little frustrated thinking it would be more, especially after this last week.

This is not a sprint, it's a marathon. 
Slow and steady wins the weight loss race.
Repeat that to yourself 3 more times.

Overall, this last week was much better than the first, mostly because I wasn't sick anymore so I was able to get in 6 workouts and burned 3,744 calories!

 My knees are really bothering me the last few days but I finally got an MRI last week and (hopefully) I will have a treatment plan when I go to my orthopedic next week! In the meantime I have hopped on the collagen peptides train and I am hoping it will bring me some much needed relief. 

I was planning on taking a rest day today but Monday workouts set the tone for the week, so I am off to sweat. 

Here's to another great week full of clean eats and strong workouts!
