Starting BMI: 24.5
Last Week’s BMI: 23.9
Current BMI: 23.9
1. Reiterate my goal and where I stand in reference to this goal:
I’m 5’8″ and have a goal weight of 142# (BMI of 21.6), so I have 15# to go.
2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals:
Progress on last week’s activities:
Eat a low calorie, healthy salad 5x. — 5/5
Elliptical or stroller walk 3x, ab work 3x. — 3/3, 2/3
I really made it a priority to try to get at least a little movement in this week! Saturday I walked Stella down to a local restaurant to meet up with my father-in-law for beers (what? he was thirsty and wanted company!), Sunday I did 50 min on the elliptical, and Monday I did 30 min on the elliptical. Both elliptical days I intended to shoot for an hour, but Stella woke up and workout time was over. I’m going to have to realize that I might always get the full workout in, but some is better than nothing! My abs also HURT from the little ab work I did. Yikes. The new plan is that on Tuesdays, Charlie picks up Stella from daycare so I can hopefully hit up the 5:30 hot yoga class as well, and that class is killer for the core!
Activities & goals for this coming week:
Eat a low calorie, healthy salad 5x.
Elliptical or stroller walk 3x, ab work 3x.
I’m keeping my goals the same this week – the weather is the same, and I’ll actually only have 2 days off between now and the next weigh-in, so I think it’s prudent to just try to complete exercise 3x this week. I will be trying to track my food intake more consistently this week – I’ve been eating too much at night for sure.
On-going Life Style Goals:
Drink 8oz every time I sit down to nurse Stella or pump (drinking roughly 100oz water/day). — I’m doing okay at this, but the water sucks at my office, so I need to start bringing a couple of big water bottles every morning so that I actually want to drink water while I’m there.
Choose fruit to snack on instead of chocolate. — I’m doing 50/50 with this… eating more fruit, but still indulging in miniature Ree.se’s PB cups pretty often lately (leftover from my friend’s baby shower that I threw a couple weeks ago). They’re almost gone, though, so that habit should slow down soon. *grin*
3. Post a (reasonably healthy) recipe that I’ve tried, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out for people to try, a photo update of my weight loss, or anything else I feel like sharing.
Don’t give up completely because you can’t be 100% perfect that day.
It’s depressing to have to completely start over the next day then.
