Weekly Weigh In #5

Yesterday I weighed in for the fifth time since beginning Weight Watchers Online. Here’s a few very important things to note about this previous week: I hadn’t tracked a thing since the following week. There’s no excuse for WHY I didn’t do it, but work was crazy busy, I was not in that tracking mindset and I just didn’t do it. However, on the plus side, I worked out like a beast this week – taking three hardcore cardio classes (boxing, impact kickboxing and bootcamp) in addition to getting lots of other activity doing household things like weeding, washing the car, etc.


That’s why this week I’m surprised – and not surprised at the same time – that I lost .6 of a pound. It’s not a massive loss, but it’s a loss. It’s a shift in the right direction, and this week provided some key learnings for me. All week I was MINDFUL of what I was eating. Did I indulge? You bet. In homemade banana muffins, a chicken gyro at King’s, and beef Teriyaki when out with my friends for lunch. I indulged, but I was sensible about it, and instead of stuffing my face, I stopped when I was full, and balanced everything with cardio and activity. I also SERIOUSLY upped my water intake this week, after having a chat with my nutritionist friend.

I’m at 3.2 pounds lost in five weeks. That’s not a ton, but it’s something. It’s better than staying the same. I had a very inspiring experience this weekend by meeting two new friends who can help me on this long, tiring road to a healthy weight. (Watch for that post on Tuesday!) This is a big goal for next week, but I’d love to lose at least 1.5 pounds at my next weigh in. I’m going to do it by drinking tons of water, continuing the aggressive cardio, and watching what I eat. And YES, I will be tracking. In fact, I’m going to track now (piece of toast, 1 piece of bacon, 2 egg whites. Breakfast!).

Have a wonderful Monday – and remember – it’s the start of a new week, and it’s never too late to make positive changes. :)

  1. Hi gorgeous!

    Two things:

    1) I miss you!
    2) I get to see you in a week and a half! Yay!

    Oh, and we should organize a day to the Getty Villa or something and look at pretty things and gardens. Or find good affordable music. I miss my ladies! (I might even resurrect a form of facebook soon…)

    Anyway, I’m going back to sleep to recover from jet-lag.

    HUGS!

  2. Keep it up mama! I know about those itty bitty baby steps, but like you said, they’re in the right direction. Just hang in there. All that exercise is going to make a big difference!
