Starting BMI: 24.5
Last Week’s BMI: 23.8
Current BMI: 23.7
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# 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 don’t want to screw with my milk supply, to I need to make sure I’m eating plenty of nutritious foods 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.
I tracked 6/7 days. Sunday was awful and I didn’t track…just straight binge eating and drinking all day at my in-laws for Easter. I’m working on a post right now about eating disorders and the holidays, coming your way soon… *sigh*
Work out 3x.
Done! I did one walk with Stella last Wednesday (about 1.5 miles) and then two days on the elliptical machine (30 min/ea.) on Saturday & Tuesday.
I snuck in one of my elliptical workouts in during my lunch break yesterday instead of nursing Stella at daycare. I missed seeing her, but it was kind of nice to get a workout done during the day so I could come home and just relax with her instead of stressing that I should carve out 30 minutes somewhere to work out (since pumping only takes me 15-20 minute and nursing her at lunch takes 30+ usually, I couldn’t nurse + have time to work out).
Activities & goals for this coming week:
*Track my food intake with MFP (_josey_) all 7 days. I still need to get a handle on my old friend portion control, though I’m trying really hard not to get neurotic about counting cals (back to the ED reference above). Finding that happy medium is key for me.
*Work out 3x. As busy as I am, 3x a week is doable. That’s only 90 minutes, and I definitely spend way more time than that watching TV, blogging, etc… so 3x is still my goal.
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.
Getting better at this too!
