Weigh In and Status Update

Well, it's Friday - my unofficial WI day.

I weighed in at 193.3 lbs. That's where I've been all week! I'm okay with that though, I did have half a DQ Blizzard the night before. Over all though - I've done great with my diet and exercise this week. Sure there were somethings I could have done better, but I'm rarely perfect, so it's pretty much perfect for me!

Despite my ice cream treat last night, I was still about 1500-1600 calories for the day, and I didn't finish it, I ate a (generous) half and put it in the freezer. I think mentally I knew I didn't need any of it, and I felt bad eating it. It had been a rough day emotionally/hormonally and I knew earlier that I would have one because of it. Not good. But later - I didn't feel as if I needed it. If my husband wasn't so gun-ho about getting them... well maybe I wouldn't have?

Anyways - I'm pretty pleased with my eating habits this week. Most days I'm around 1200-1400 calories, and I'm tracking too! I've been exercising most days. I'm on day 16 or 17 with the 30 Day Shred. I started really late Wednesday evening(w/ day 17) and was interrupted by my daughter having *girl* problems... so I just quit and dealt with her. Sometimes you have to just skip it. The next day I was being hormonal and just didn't want to do anything. I was surprised that I pulled myself out of it before the end of the day... but like I said, I still ate the DQ.

I've done more cardio and strength this week too. Life is more normal so I was able to get to the gym 3 times this week! Pretty impressed with myself! I'm hoping when TOM has passed I'll see some big results. So I'm not getting discouraged yet.

My goal was to be under 190 by the end of July, I might have to push that out a little ways since TOM is being so involved right now. Either way, it doesn't matter, because the goal after that is to lose 5-7 pounds in August. I'm going oot Aug 4-7 so I'm just hoping before I leave I will be at my July goal. The next big trick will to be *good* for 4 days while I'm traveling with some girl friends! I'll have to be really careful and diligent about making it to the gym. Ugh!! I just hope that I do make my July goal and that will be all the motivation I need to be good those 4 days. I don't want to screw it up!!!

  2. You are getting there, Amy! I'm so proud of you! Keep it up! I can't weight to weigh under 200 pounds. :)
