Weigh in Monday...on Tuesday Again!

Tuesday, June 9, 2015

I am a little late in posting my weigh in results this week. Last week and this weekend was too crazy and Sunday I literally could not function. The exhaustion was real and I gave in! Now, things are slowing down and I have two weeks before I have both kiddos home full time with me. There are a lot of things on my To Do list to tackle before that happens and we go full swing into summer.

Any how, I know you all want to know how I did. If you forgot, last time I weighed in was two weeks ago and I gained, 1.8 pounds. It was my first really disappointing weigh in, you can read about it here. This week, the scale went down! Not a lot, but down and that's all that matters :)

I, of course, would have loved to have seen myself lose everything I had put on at the last weigh in, but honestly, there were many reasons I was super happy with that loss....

  1. During the two weeks, we celebrated our 10 year anniversary and at out all three meals.
  2. We traveled and ate out a lot over a 3 day period
  3. When we came back from traveling, I kicked into gear and upped my game and I no kidding had to say no to cake or cupcakes... 3 TIMES last week, and pizza 3 TIMES. We did tons of celebrating last week and yes, I said no to things I loved day after day and it killed me. I knew that I had gone overboard for the weekend and if I wanted to see a loss and not a gain, I had to be strict, and I did it! So, I know the loss wasn't huge, but had I given in to all those things, I bet I would have seen a pretty significant gain. It paid off!

Because I want to see the other pound come off again and get back to the 180's, this weekend I tracked and made sure to stay within my 49 extra points. My fingers are crossed to see the 180's this coming Saturday!

A blogger friend of mine, Laura at The Horton Family was talking the other day about how she walks 3 miles every morning and I thought that would really work for me. I don't like to do the work out videos in the early morning because I don't want to wake the kids, but if I could get out of the house and walk, especially since it is nice weather in Maine right now, that is totally what I should do! I really enjoy walking so it won't be as much of a struggle to get myself to do it.

Normally I am looking for what will work for me in the long term, and walking in the morning would not work come winter because I am a cold wimp and you wouldn't get me out there on a cold morning, but for today, I am thinking about the Here and Now and this would work for the next few months, so that is my plan!

I am hoping that this kicks my weight loss efforts up a notch with some increased activity! Now if I can just get a little more sleep so that I wake up refreshed and ready to go in the morning!

Have a great Tuesday everyone!!

  1. Congrats on the loss and thank you for the shout out! My only suggestion would be don't start out with walking 3. Miles a day. I certainly had to build up to it. When I did WW YEARS ago, they encouraged 20 minutes of activity. I would start out with 20-30 minutes of walking a day and build your self up in distance. The important thing is that you are MOVING!! Oh, and what I wouldn't give to have your weather to walk in!!! You can do this!!!
