Weigh-In 2/1

This last week pretty much flew by. Lots going on with the kids, taxes to be prepared/filed (still not finished). Plus my husband's birthday was Saturday. We went to Longhorn, and I was not on plan, but I think I did good. I got the Wild West Shrimp appetizer, and ate a little more than half. It was so good (cause I was really hungry by the time we got to eat, what with a 30 minute wait and all), but greasy and battered too. It upset my tummy the rest of the night!

Even though I only got one post in last week, I wasn't off eating whatever and not exercising though. In fact, my workouts for the week were great. I even finally did something other than biking yesterday. I went back in time and pulled out my Just Dance 2 for the Wii and did six songs. I earned over 3000 sweat points, and was exhausted by the time I finished. Dancing really burns calories and gets your heart rate up!

For my other 3 workouts on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, I did do the bike. Over an hour on Tuesday and Friday, and 30 minutes on Wednesday. Saturday was pretty active also because we went to a strip mall type place and did a LOT of walking to and from stores, as well as walking around inside of a few stores. I got in over 11,000 steps on Saturday. Steps aren't something I normally track or set a goal for because my daily step count is usually paltry. Unless I go to the Nature Trail or something, I don't go over 6000-7000 or so steps in a day. But I obviously get exercise in other ways, so it's good.

To the weigh in. I was really expecting to be up this week after losing so much the last two weeks. Especially since I've been reading posts on the Facebook page about other people gaining a little in week three. Something about the body adjusting after adding grains and fruits back in. And to be perfectly honest, I overdid it a bit with grains last week. So I was happy to see that I lost 1.2 more pounds this week for a total of 16 pounds lost!

Onward and Downward!


  1. WOOHOOOOOO! I'm pretty sure you've lost in 3 weeks what I lost in my first year (though I wasn't really trying all that hard), lol. WAY TO GO!

    1. I'm sure a lot of it is water weight, but thank you!
