Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In: 27 Weeks Postpartum

You get whatever you settle for.

Starting Weight: 6wk pp: 161# (at BFP weight)
Last Week’s Weight: 160#
Current Weight: 158#

Starting BMI: 24.5
Last Week’s BMI: 24.3
Current BMI: 24.0

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) or a Size 8, whichever happens first, so I have roughly 16# to go.

2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals:

Progress on last week’s activities:

*Move my body every day. – Done!
*Eat healthy snacks. – Done! I’ve been bringing cottage cheese w/fresh fruit & almonds to work for a snack (or just a plain apple/banana/etc). Delish!
*Don’t drink so much. – This is always my failure area. LOL. Ugh. It’s a work in progress.
*Make a new healthy dinner recipe. – Oops, I didn’t get around to making a new one. That’s the plan tonight though! The upside is that my husband has been cooking more so I have time to work out every night!

Activities & goals for this coming week: 

*Move my body every day.
*Eat healthy snacks.
*Cut back on drinking.
*Make a new healthy dinner recipe.

On-going Life Style Goals:
Drink 8oz every time I sit down to nurse Stella or pump (drinking roughly 100oz water/day).
Walk places instead of drive when possible.

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.

I’m super excited about how well The Great 100 Day Challenge is going. I’m 12/12 so far, and I guarantee you that most of those day I would have skipped the workout if not for this challenge. Thanks for the motivation Carlia. πŸ™‚  Feel free to join in if you’d like – it definitely doesn’t have to be fitness related either. For me, the goal of moving my body every day for 100 days is all about making ME a priority every day, even if it’s only for 10 minutes.
