Another Weigh In Sunday

Hello everyone! Didnt want anyone to think I was trying to avoid weighing in today and updating you all on my progress. I have just been busy visiting with my Mom and Sister Lisa who are in town. Anyhow today was another weigh in day and another day to post my excercise for the week to hold myself accountable. Was not the week I had hoped for but it is hard to stay focused and on your routine with family visiting. I did have a weight loss, but not much. Here are the training stats.

Monday: Body Combat: kick boxing class at the gym (kicked my butt!)
Tuesday: Swim training 200 meters in lap pool
Wednesday: Off
Thursday: Off
Friday: Body Pump: High energy fast paced weight lifting/strength training
Saturday: Off
Sunday: Ran 20 minutes/walk 10/abs/steps

My weight this morning was 146, down a pound from last week. My plan to drink 8oz of water BEFORE eating anything and before having anything other than water to drink was going well for me and when I picked up my Mom and Sister on Wed I snuck a peak at the scale and it was 144. But then Dunkin Donuts trips, card games etc has led to not as much water and a little bit of snacking. Hopefully this week will be better!

Update: 2 mos 3 weeks till wedding. 3 months till triathlon!

PS- I got my maid of honor dress on. I have only an inch that I shouldnt try to zip just yet. Other than that it fits! Yeah! I am confident it will look great come April!


  1. So proud of you! My cold really kicked my butt the past couple of weeks but I'm finally ready to get back to it! Wish me luck :)

  2. Do you follow a certain diet w/ food?

  3. Sounds like the progress is going well. Try to stick to 1-2lbs/week, otherwise it might not stay off.

  4. Vicki- I just eat healthy overall, but I think I might not eat enough and that is why my body holds on to weight. For instance this morning for breakfast I had an english muffin with one egg, one piece of cheese and some salsa. For lunch I had a healthy choice meal (300 calories) and a few wheat thins. For dinner I had lipton noodle soup and a grilled cheese on whole wheat. Then a weight watchers ice cream for snack later... seems like I am doing something correct right?

  5. You should add in a mid-morning snack and an afternoon snack. I've recentely started eating Oatmeal for breakfast, didn't like it at first, but now I love it (and it only takes 1 minute of microwaving)! My morning snack usually consists of a yogurt or some kind of fruit. Lunch I generally do a sandwhich w/ a side. Afternoon snack consists of cheese/crackers or peanut butter (out of the jar). Dinner is usually chicken or non-red meat w/ a vegetable. I can pass you along my meal plan my trainer made for me, I don't follow the food exact, but you might like it. Let me know if you want it. :)
