How the Jeans Fit Friday #7

Friday, February 13, 2015

Before we talk about the scale, can we take a sec to talk about my cute Jamberry toes?! I am loving the simple, cute pattern of these snowflakes and they are perfect for the weather we are having! 

Moving on...

Starting weight = 206.8
Goal Weight = 140
Last Weigh in = 199.4
Todays Weight = 198.2
Pounds lost this week = 1.2
Total Pounds Lost = 8.6
Pounds left to goal = 58.2

This was not as much of a loss as I was hoping for, or was expecting, and it had everything to do with my eating yesterday (more below), but I am back on track today!

The Good...

  • As for eating, besides one day, I did great! I felt really on target and was happy with my choices. I never felt like I over ate, and tried to make good balanced meals. 
  • I did PIYO 3 times this week and walked the mall once. Not bad. I would like to get in some more, but 3 is better than none (which we all know, is what I usually say)! The week after next, I plan to start Zumba at least once per week and I am really excited about that! 
  • I went to bed early and got up early every day! I am really finding a good rhythm to my day. I am starting to get into a schedule that works for me to do all the things I need to get done. I am planning my day better and I feel like I am accomplishing more. Of course, next week is vacation week, so I can basically throw all of this out the window :) But, after that I will have a good 6 weeks before the next vacation! 

The Bad and the Ugly...

  • Yesterday (of course the day before I weigh in) was not a good eating day. It started off great, but then Owen and I met friends at McDonald's for lunch and some play time at the play place inside. I got myself a Sweet chili chicken wrap made with grilled chicken, not bad 380 calories. But I ordered the meal so it came with fries and I ate them all while I sat and chatted with friends, then the kids (or maybe it was the adults?) wanted dessert and we all got hot fudge sundaes...another 330 calories. I would say it was peer pressure (Robin and Mariah!) but it wasn't, I wanted it just as bad! I ate all this and then plugged it in to my fitness pal (thanks for the reminder, Amanda) and saw this before I even ate dinner.....
  • I tracked consistently for like a day or two and then fell off the tracking wagon. My friend reminded me to track yesterday and I am back at it! I will try to be consistent with it from here on out! 
  • Not enough exercise! I have been thinking of posting what my exercise plan is on here as well as eating, just to keep myself even more accountable! We will see, you might see that come out with my meal plan next week! 
The plan for next week is to stay on track, as much as possible. Valentine's day is going to be a wash, I bought some things for a really yummy breakfast and dinner and of course I hope to find some of these in the morning....

More than likely, they will be gone by Sunday, so back on track I will go! I will do the best I can during vacation week and hopefully since we don't have to rush out the door in the mornings, I will get a workout in each morning. That way even if the eating isn't perfect, hopefully the working out will counteract the eating! 

I hope everyone has a fabulous Valentine's Day! We are spending the day as a family, baking, eating and playing! 

Look at this cutie as she went off to school today! 

Oh and we are gearing up for the next snowstorm, which if you have been following along, you might not believe it, but we are supposed to get another 15-20 inches of snow and blizzard conditions Saturday night into Sunday. It almost feels like a joke, I am not kidding. Check it out!

  1. Keep up the good work! You got this!

  2. Keep up! The big thing is picking back up when you fall off the wagon and not giving up!

  3. I am a firm believer that you deserve a cheat meal every once in a while and as long as you hop back on the wagon you are fine :) Keep up the great work!

  4. Don't feel bad about the McDonald's trip - one day isn't going to kill you!! Of course, I've been allowing myself a few too many cheat days so I'm not sure I'm the person you want to listen to!!

    My weight has been up and down +/- 2 lbs since January 1st and I'm realizing I need to get serious and stop allowing those cheat days!

    I love reading your Friday posts -- they are inspirational...


I would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
