Weekly Weigh In - Week 1

Friday, July 4, 2014

Good morning! I am labeling this post,week 1, because I really "fell off the wagon" a few weeks after starting the blog and now I feel refreshed and motivated like I haven't in a long time. Now, I feel like I am starting this journey until the end. I will consider last week my starting off point and so this, is week 1 and I want to number the weeks to see how long my journey takes! So here are the updated stats!
Last Weeks Weight: 193.8
Current weight: 193.6
Weight +/- this week: - 0.2
Goal weight: 140 or below
Small goal: 14.6 pounds (179)
 
 I was a little disappointed with the small amount of weight loss this week. I can not tell you how great I feel though. I have not felt this motivated in years! I was really slapped in the face the last few weeks with how much my weight has grown out of control and something in me has clicked. I have made it a point to get my workouts in by looking at the calendar and figuring out when in the day it was going to work. My eating hasn't been perfect, but it is life happening, not me sitting at home eating all the chocolate in my house and scooping peanut butter out of the jar (I can't be the only one who does this??) I had plans to go out to eat twice and made relatively good (not perfect) choices and had a drink both times. One night I celebrated my dads birthday and I chose to bring my own grilled chicken salad rather than getting take out, and I passed on a cupcake...People, I passed on a cupcake...you see?? Motivation and will power, they have been missing for a long time and I found them!
 
The Good...
  • I passed on a cupcake! Just in case you missed that in the last paragraph :)
  • I did T25 everyday except for weekend rest days.
  • I am also doing a squat challenge. I am up to 60 squats. Today is 65. Let me tell you, between all the squats in T25 and then this squat challenge, today I woke up officially sore. Ouch! I secretly love it though, soreness makes me feel like I am making progress.
 
The Bad and the Ugly...
  • Most days I did not get my steps in, and a few days my numbers were very low. The summer heat and sitting by the lake and the pool are not doing much for my fitbit numbers.
  • My weekend eating was not great. It was Owens birthday party and we had company all weekend. Friday was pizza (not homemade), Saturday we grilled burgers and hot dogs (not so bad) but I had eaten cupcakes and some chips. And of course both nights I had a few drinks. None of it was horrible, if I wasn't trying to lose weight. With exercising, I could probably splurge like this and easily maintain because I wasn't out of control, but splurging like this isn't going to put up the numbers I would like to see on the scale. It definitely shows in this weeks numbers. Although I was almost perfect during the week, I did have those two dinners out. I think coupled with the weekend splurges, it was too much.
Even though the numbers didn't show it, I will say that I am still happy this week. I worked out each day, I did make some great choices eating and I overall feel different. I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little disappointed that I couldn't tell you guys I lost at least a pound, but I didn't gain and I lost a little! I am taking accountability for the choices I made this past week, and next week I will try harder!
Happy 4th of July!!
