Weigh-In Wednesday- 1/22/19

Hey All!

Its that same time of the week again. I am happy to report that this week I lost weight! Yay! Especially after last week’s gain I’m really happy that this week worked out. The difference between this week and last week is –2.4 lbs so we are moving in the right direction. Whoop whoop!

EXERCISE: I am still sticking to my workout of cardio 3-4x a week. I managed to get to the gym 4x this week. Added bonus 45 full minutes of treadmill work on Sunday. And lifted 3 days this week and fit in one solid day of stretching for 30 minutes.

DIET: My food has been under my established calorie goal via myfitnesspal. However, this week I think I’ve decided to make my goals a little less aggressive and up my calories. The app gives you the option to select your goal which I had at -2lbs a week which gave me about 1200cals/week with my sedentary lifestyle. That being said I think I’m altering it to 1.5lbs/week which gives me around 1400cals/week. Not only is this probably a more sustainable diet but it supports my health goals. It¬†will better support my goal of maintaining/increasing muscle mass, but I feel it will also help transition into weight maintenance easier. Since maintenance is something I’ve struggled with in the past, I’d like to give myself the best advantage now.

Weigh-In Wednesday- 1/16/19

Morning!

Its that time of week again. I’m a little disappointed to report that I have gone up a pound this last week. I did some reflecting and honestly I’m chalking this one up to either being dehydrated when I first weighed in or my body is just being difficult. I have 0 clue why it went up. I used my fitnesspal and was under calorie goal all week. I also worked out 4 times, which is 4x more than I’ve done in the past. Each time 5 minute warm up followed by 30 minutes of cardio (I’m doing interval running) and lifting after. Focusing on either arms, legs, back, or chest. So even though the numbers make me a bit sad, I just am going to keep doing what I’m doing. I can’t do any better, so here is to an odd week.

What do you all do to stay motivated on weeks like this?

Weigh-in Wednesday!- 1/9/18

Hey all,

I know its been forever since I posted but we are back at it. If you care about what I’ve been up to, I’ve written about it in a post here.¬†Similar to past posts, I plan to have “Weigh-in Wednesdays” to help get me back on track with my fitness/dietary goals.

I have struggled with depression and binge eating the last 6 months or so. Mixed with grad school I’ve gained almost all the weight I lost previous back. =( That being said, I am now actively making the choice to not eat junk and work out at least 3x a week. This is easier said than done when you’re in PA school but just like I tell my patients, my health needs to remain a priority. So here goes my attempts at doing just that.

So quick and easy. Here are my current numbers. No matter how embarrassing they might be.

With peace,

Weigh In Day

 

Hey All,

This last week has been really hard for me. I’ve been struggling with anxiety and depression in a way I never have. Due to this my diet and exercise has taken a backseat because I am having a hard time keeping up with normal things like laundry, showering, and getting to work at a decent time. I’m trying and will continue to attempt to improve, but I can only expect so much of myself right now. Hope you’re all having a better week than me.

with peace,

Weigh In Wednesday

Hey All,

So I finally got myself back in the gym Monday. Which was exciting, and terrible if you get what I’m saying. lol It felt good to start using my legs again running and lifting, even if I’m sore as heck on day 2. I haven’t been tracking my eating habits that much, however, I haven’t been terrible. My weight for some odd reason has gone up this week by about .5lbs. I’m hoping this change is only temporary and to push through this next week. Watch my weight and diet a little bit more. Either way, happy weigh in Wednesday!

Weigh In Thursday?

Hey All,

I know this is a day late. Things have been nuts with having to find a new place to live. Like crazy nuts. Upside, even though I’ve been paying 0 attention to my diet and binged hard on all the carbs on mother’s day I’ve only gained a pound. I know that is the wrong direction and bad to most, but for me usually its a bigger increase. With the beautiful weather I’ve been naturally getting out more. So hopefully by next week that pound will be gone. Either way, I hope you all achieve your goals this week!

with peace,

Weigh In Wednesday/Mini update

Good Morning All,

So this week has been a bit nuts for me. I moved out of where I was living and back into my parents house until August. So that has been stressful but I think good since its been cleansing to get away from the place where a large portion of M and I’s relationship took place. All that being said, I haven’t been watching what I eat a ton or exercising. Just kinda trying to survive the emotional roller coaster.

In general I have been eating more, the lasts two weeks instead of basically unintentionally starving myself out of grief. This resulted in a large weight gain last week, but I’ve dropped back down this week. (3 lbs!) Not back down to my smallest, but that also wasn’t a healthy weight loss. I think my body just needed to believe that I was in fact going to feed it and not be in starvation mode. So I’m pleased with today’s numbers. Planning to do some more meal prep t

keep calm

his weekend and ramp of the exercise game. With the weather getting nicer I’ll attempt to do some of this outside. Allergies willing.

Hope you all have a good week,

-B
