Another week, another weigh in. Being a stay-at-home mom (and one that doesn't drive) i don't really get to get out that often so it's nice to have something to look forward to every week. For me, that thing is my weigh in!
I do a lot of "Shape-up" Challenges on the "What to Expect" message boards. These challenges are 10 weeks long and i've been doing them since the beginning of the year with great success. Well this was the end of week one of a brand new challenge so i worked extra hard to get some fantastic results. I feel like i really slacked over the summer, still losing but not losing nearly as much as i would have hoped. The new challenge gave me the motivation to get off my butt and kick it into high gear again, and this weeks results PROVE it!
I started the challenge at 186.7 and weighed in today at 181.0. That's a 5.7lb loss since the middle of last week! Keep in mind this was not just one weeks work though, probably around 10 days but still a great loss for that amount of time!
Which brings me to my current goal. I have a beach vacation in 13 days, YIKES! Swimsuits...ugh... I set myself a pretty hefty goal a few weeks back to be 175lbs by then. At the time that was a solid 2lbs a week, which has proven to be pretty difficult because i'm at a point where i don't always lose every single week. Thankfully the loss this week boosted me right back where i need to be and i MIGHT just reach that goal. I'm going to get pretty close at least and that's pretty exciting!
My goals for the next week...
Gym 3 days
Walk at least 15 miles
Bike 20 miles
Continue controlling my bread and potato intake (this is SOOOO hard for me!)
