Starting BMI: 24.5
Last Week’s BMI: 23.9
Current BMI: 23.8
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 14.5# to go.
I’m currently wearing size 10-12 jeans, and I’d love to get to an eight.
155-157# is probably going to be a plateau weight for me (always has been). I’m concentrating on increasing my milk supply right now, so I want to make sure I’m eating nutritious foods and maintaining my weight for the time being, though I still want to work on getting more toned. I’m going to keep up with the WWW, because I know how easy it is to slide back up the scale if I’m not being careful.
2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals:
Progress on last week’s activities:
Track my food intake with MFP (_josey_) and not go over my total cals allowed overall for the week.
Um, oops. I tracked 5/7 days (skipped the weekend). I was 240 cals over on the 5 days (though I’m not exactly certain how much I should be eating / am burning breastfeeding, so I’m okay with that). The weekend I was definitely over thanks to LOTS of beer and snacking. I’m glad I got back on MFP though… seeing that I was so over my limit on Wed/Thurs/Fri got me motivated to be better on Mon/Tues. I’m going to try to track every day this week to get my snacking / portion control back on track.
Work out 3x.
Done! I did two walks around town with Stella in the moby (which she loves way more than the stroller lately) and did one 45 minute session on the elliptical and some ab work. I did the elliptical last night when I got home from work, because I couldn’t stand writing today that I had failed at both of my goals for the week again. LOL
Activities & goals for this coming week:
*Track my food intake with MFP (_josey_) and not go over my total cals allowed overall for the week.
*Work out 3x.
On-going Life Style Goals:
Drink 8oz every time I sit down to nurse Stella or pump (drinking roughly 100oz water/day).
I’m getting better at this, and it’s definitely helping with my milk supply.
Choose fruit to snack on instead of chocolate.
Ugh, still grabbing chocolate much too often. I never liked sweets until I was pregnant, and now I still love them, dammit!
