Bye-Bye Baby Weight - Week 7

PhotobucketWhoa...7 weeks of joining this fabulous link-up of my journey to my "healthy weight"...based on my age of 29 and height of 5'8 they tell me thats 145 pounds.  I've been there before so I totally know its attainable and I also know that it looks better on me than the current 166 I'm sitting at.  So...I've found this link-up to be the best thing to help hold me accountable...although this week was not my best work-out week I did manage to shed some considerable weight!  So, here are the deets:


This Week's Loss/Gain: -5.4
Total Weight Loss: 29.4
Weight to Go: 20.6
Food:  I did better with the food this week and thanks to my hubs, who's a wonderful cook, we had some delicious and rather healthy dinners! 

Fitness:  Uuugghhh....this week was a bad one when it came to achieving my fitness goals.  It seemed like every night I had a work-out planned something else came up...so frustrating!  It's no excuse....I've simply got to do better this week!

Week 6:

Monday - 25 sit-ups
Tuesday - Day 3 of Week 4 of Couch to 5k - Week 4 completed
Wednesday - 25 sit-ups
Thursday - nothing
Friday - nothing
Saturday - worked in the garden for 1 hour
Sunday - 25 sit-ups
Work out 3 times this week
- Complete 25 sit-ups three days this week
Eat breakfast every morning
Only have dessert once this week
Drink more water and no soda 

This Week's Goals:
Work out 3 times this week - I fell flat on my face with this goal this past week so it's super important that I don't fall off the wagon for another week.  I'm actually hoping to squeeze in an extra work-out to make up for some lost time last week!
Complete 35 sit-ups three days this week - This seemed pretty easy so I've increased the number to 35 for this week's goal!
Eat breakfast every morning - I've done well with this but I need to focus on making sure I make healthy choices when it comes to breakfast as well.
Only have dessert once this week - This has been easier than I thought...so I'm sticking with once just to keep my metabolism up...ha!
Drink more water and no soda - I had one soda last week but did make up for it by drinking extra water that day....we had pizza to celebrate a co-worker's return to her home office and so I indulged a little!

Oh my Gosh! 5 pounds? How did you do that? I'm just a little bit jealous over here. Despite doing almost everything right I can't seem to lose. I'm so frustrated!

Wow! Great job with the 5 lbs. We are very similar weight/size wise! I'm 5'8" and my goal is 150 which was my pre-pregnancy weight. Looks like we weigh about the same right now... I like your idea of weekly goals. I think I'll try that too! Again great job!
