Linking up with Tami over at "Little Moments Like This" for my third week of "Bye Bye Baby Weight." If you're working towards the same goal you should definitely join in the fun - I really feel like this is doing a much better job of holding me accountable for my fitness goals than doing fitness as a monthly goal!!
This Week’s Loss/Gain: +2 lbs. - tears
Total Weight Lost: 24 lbs
Weight to Go: 26 lbs
Food: Other than a Saturday dinner out and some cheese and cracker munchies on Sunday, I felt food-wise I had a good week. I ate mostly salads for lunch and the hubs and I did ok with our dinner selections. My hubs has class two nights a week so those nights are always a struggle when it comes to meal selections! I really need to incorporate breakfast into my daily routine. I never have anything but coffee for breakfast and I know it is important to get your metabolism going in the morning to keep your body from going into "starvation mode" and hoarding calories.
Fitness: Here is the day-by-day breakdown. As you'll see below, I played my FIRST round of golf (or rather 1/2 round - we only played 9 holes) on Sunday. We walked the entire 9 holes (partly because I'm too cheap to pay for a cart) and it was wonderful exercise...it equates to about 2 1/2 miles of walking with clubs on your back for the course we play.
Monday - nothing
Tuesday - nothing
Wednesday - nothing
Thursday - Day 2 of Week 1 of Couch to 5k
Friday - nothing
Saturday - Day 3 of Week 1 of Couch to 5k - Week 1 completed
Sunday - walked and played 9 holes of golf
Last Week’s Goals:
This Week’s Goals-
- Work out three times this week - It is supposed to get blazing hot at the end of this week so looks like I'll be dragging my tail to the gym later in the week! I'd really like to get Week 2 of Couch to 5k finished this week!
- Only have dessert twice this week - This was so tough for me last week but I did it. I even denied myself one the lovely cupcakes pictured here for this chica's 30th birthday celebration
- Drink more water and no soda! - This is still hard for me so I'm going to continue to make this a weekly goal until it becomes habit. I've never been a big water drinker so I have to keep reminding myself to drink water!!!
I have to admit...after meeting all of my weekly goals and really feeling like I had a wonderful week and should have shed some pounds...I was completely disheartned at what the scale told me last night. How do you gain weight when you've done everything you've set out to do to lose it? Fortunately, this isn't my first rodeo...I know this all takes time and by looking at last week...when I lost weight...I probably should have gained so I guess it all comes full circle. That being said, I'm really going to push myself to continue to choose healthier options and work-out regularly. Perhaps loading all of work-outs on the back end of the week didn't help at my weekly weigh in either!! Thanks so much for all of your words of encouragement and support. It's funny how posting about this really can be the motivation some nights to get off my duff and get a work-out in or refuse that delicious cupcake that's calling my name!!!
