Pound For Pound…..

Happy Friday!

Today is Day 22 of our Pledge 20, and a weigh in day for me! I’m proud to announce I’m down 2.6 pounds this week! YAY! It’s not huge but it’s a loss and that makes me closer to my Goal! I’m so proud of all of you and your wonderful weigh in’s today and through out the week. When we reach our 1/2 way mark I’m going to tally our total pounds lost! Go Team Girl Gone Healthy!

If you’d like to Pledge 20, you still can! Pledge 20 was my own personal weightloss goal to reach by March 1st! Those 20 pounds will put me at my goal weight and giving me a 130 pound total weightloss! Either Tweet you Pledge, email it to girlgonehealthy@hotmail.com or comment on this post! It’s never to late to Pledge for a healthier life!!

I have received several emails in regards to taking our Pledge to a bigger scale, no pun intended. So I thought why not do it Biggest Loser style! With the help of GGH’er Amy K. this is the Rhode Island information for the Pound For Pound Challenge! Click on the links at the bottoms to find out where YOUR state ranks, and get involved! Lose weight and fight hunger, doesn’t get much better!

This season of the Biggest Loser includes another round of the Pound for Pound Challenge in which residents of each state have the opportunity to go online and pledge the amount of weight they hope to lose by the end of June, 2010. Working with Feeding America (the RI Food Bank’s national affiliate organization), The Biggest Loserand The Pound for Pound Challenge have committed to donate 14 cents for each pound pledged to the local food bank of each person’s state. Being the only Feeding America food bank in Rhode Island, we will be the recipient of the funds from EVERY pound pledged by Rhode Island residents. So far, we rank 42nd in the country with just over 9,000 pounds pledged – which has already raised over $1,300 in just one week! Can you help me spread the word to your friends and family and get Rhode Island to move up the ladder AND raise valuable funds for the Food Bank? People can access the Pound for Pound Challenge by clicking on the story that appears on our website’s homepage: www.rifoodbank.org or directly at www.pfpchallenge.com

This morning was an off day at the gym and I was feeling like a PBJ for breakfast!

Yummy! Weight Watcher’s wheat bread, sugar free grape jelly, and all natural pb! Love it.

For lunch I whipped a fave GGH salad, Spinach and Tuna! I also dug out a real plate just because I was tired of eating on plastic/paper. I then realized that without a sink, aside from the bathroom sink, I should’ve just used plastic LOL. But here it is!


2 cups fresh baby spinach, 1 can albacore tuna in water-drained, EVOO, lemon juice, Parmesan sprinkles=AWESOME

I washed it down with a Powerade Zero!

I also indulged in a Glow Double Chocolate Chip Cookie!

Love them!

With a full belly I decided it was time to play with the newest addition to the Norberg family, Daisy!

Daisy is a 12 week old full bred Lhasa Apso and I LOVE her! She is so sweet!

We played all afternoon and I think tonight I’m going to take her for a quick jog! Her legs are like the tiniest things ever, but I want to get her started early!
