Starting BMI: 24.5
Last Week’s BMI: 23.9
Current BMI: 23.6
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 13.5# to go.
I’m down 2# this week, which makes a loss of 2.5# over the past four weeks. Not awesome, but not bad. Slowly but surely! Seven weeks ago I was cleared to work out, and with a goal of 1# of weight loss per week, I’m down 5.5#. I can’t really complain, as I have been making an effort to eat healthier and move a little more… but I definitely haven’t made any drastic changes to my lifestyle.
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. — 4/5 I believe. We ran out of my spring mix lettuce that I use for my chef salads every day at lunch, and it was a couple of days before we made it to the grocery store. Oops.
Elliptical or stroller walk 3x, ab work 3x. — 2.5/3, 1/3. I did the elliptical once for 45 min, once for 15 min, and I walked Stella in the stroller once. I only did ab stuff once, even though that’s the part of my body I’m least happy with right now. GRRR. Why do I do that to myself? I meant to get to yoga on Monday for some good core work, but work ran late and I didn’t have time to pump or nurse before hand, and I just didn’t feel like being uncomfortable and leaking for the entire class!
Activities & goals for this coming week:
Eat a low calorie, healthy salad 5x. — We’ll be traveling Friday through Monday, so I really hope I can make this a priority even while traveling.
Elliptical or stroller walk 3x, ab work 3x. — Again, traveling Friday through Monday and working every other day before and after. I’m just going to have to make this a priority somehow, though I’m not going to beat myself up to spend my time on the elliptical instead of with my family while in MN.
On-going Life Style Goals:
Drink 8oz every time I sit down to nurse Stella or pump (drinking roughly 100oz water/day).
Choose fruit to snack on instead of chocolate.
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.
