Weigh-In Wednesday- 2/20/19

This morning I stepped on the scale and was shocked, it read 234.4lbs. That is a 2.6lbs loss since lat week. HECK YES! I was surprised because this entire week I’ve been gaining and losing this same dang pound. To be fair, I wasn’t surprised that I was gaining and losing that one pound because I wasn’t eating the cleanest and a was a bit over on my calorie several days this week.  I just had a lot of celebrations, 2 birthdays, small groups, a pizza party with my class…etc. And I was ok with not having a perfect diet week to live life. Its all about balance I suppose. Just continued working out. For whatever reason my body dropped a ton of the weight today. Either way, thanks body! haha

EXERCISE: Last week I lifted 3x that week. I have an ok run. A rough run and a really awesome run. In fact, I ran for an entire 30 mins for the first time since I’ve started back up. I’m super pumped about it. =] I’m aware that its no big deal for some, but for me, I’m really proud of that.

DIET: I’ve stuck to my 1600cal/week goal for the most part. I splurged about 300cals over 3 days this last week but I just tried to be a bit more active on those days. Such is life sometimes. I’m right back to my clean eating again this week. I had a great Meijer haul with a ton of produce Sunday. I’m loving eating all my fresh veggies and fruits this week. I’ve been trying new ways to sneak veggies in and I’ve actually had a good time trying new things. I’d highly encourage all of you to try new recipes when things feel like they’re getting old.

Thats all for now!

I stepped on the scale this morning and could not believe the number I saw. 239!!!!! I broke 140 and officially have lost 10lbs+ I was nervous because my body has been gaining and losing 1-2lbs every day this week. Yes, I weight myself everyday and understand it’ll be slow or water fluctuations, it just serves as a reminder for  me. Honestly, I was worried I was going to say I gained this week because one day I literally jumped up to 242.8lbs.  I’m so glad to finally feel like I am in control of my body and health again. I hope you all have a healthy week and have a great day.

EXERCISE: This week was harder in the gym for some reason. I didn’t have very good runs and lifting was ok. With the exception of the other day where I ran for a straight 9 minutes and then walked 5 then ran another 8 and did 2 minute intervals after. Ever when run days are hard, I still love knowing I’m improving.  When it comes to weights, I’m either getting stronger or I’m not working out hard enough. I’m just not getting sore post workout. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcomed.

DIET: With the exception of the mini binge (1900cal-should be a maintain cal #) my diet has been very clean. I don’t know why my weight isn’t moving the way it should but I’m just going to keep trying.

Good Morning Everyone!

I am excited to announce that I lost 2.6 lbs this week. Two Point Six! YASSSSSS! I’m excited to see that my meal prepping at hard work is paying off.

EXERCISE: I was addicted to the gym this week! For whatever reason, my body really wanted to move. Maybe it just wanted to not study, haha…but ya know! So I went to the gym 5 times this week. I do love that this happens for me occasionally. Once the gym becomes habit after several months, I do begin to crave it. When I don’t go it feels weird. I’m looking forward to when that feeling happens for me consistently.

DIET: I think upping my calorie goal using myfitnesspal was the best choice I could have made for my body. Not only do I feel WAY less hungry (I don’t really ever feel hungry; just before meals) but I think its revved my metabolism. See the crazy weight loss this week despite eating more calories than I have in the past few weeks. To be clear, the majority of those calories were healthy things like vegetables, lean meats, and fruits with a small amount of cheese for dessert. Because lets be honest, cheese is amazing. So I can say my diet has been clean 90% of the time. Even if my weight loss ends up being slower, eating more is SO much better for me in the long run.

 

I actually ended writing too much about the change it my diet. So much so that it became an entirely separate blog post that you can read here.

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?
