Starting BMI: 24.5
Last Week’s BMI: 24.5
Current BMI: 24.5
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.
2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals:
Progress on last week’s activities:
Track all 7 days on MFP. Achieved! First time in a very long time that I’ve tracked all week. I’ve set my goal settings to be to lose 1/2# per week. I was 416 under MFP’s calorie goal for me for the week, so that’s good. Not so good, the additional pound I could have lost if I hadn’t had any drinks this week. Baby steps. I’m going to keep tracking and keep trying to cut back on the amount of empty calories I consume through alcohol.
Move my body every day. Achieved! It wasn’t hard core amazing workouts every day, but I made an effort to at least do something every day. Char has been working 2 1/2 hrs from home, so I’m basically single parenting and it’s been hard, but it’s important to make moving a priority. One day all I had time to do was a bunch of ab work as I laid on the floor and listened to Stella fuss herself to sleep, but that’s okay. That’s better than sitting on the stair step and playing with my phone, right?
Activities & goals for this coming week:
Track all 7 days on MFP. I’m going to keep tracking and keep trying to cut back on the amount of empty calories I consume through alcohol.
Move my body every day.
On-going Life Style Goals that I’m achieving:
Finish SIX of my 16oz water bottles throughout the day.
Walk places instead of drive when possible.
I’ve decided that at my 40w postpartum WWW (Sept 12) I am starting my count over. On Sept 8, Stella will be 9 months old and my 100 Day Challenge will be complete. I’m hoping to be solidly in the 150s at that point, since right now I’m at the same weight I was at 6w pp and at my BFP weight. I’d really like to get back to a place where my dress pants fit nicely (150#), so that will probably be my short term adjusted goal as well. I’m thankful that I took off the “baby weight” with no problem, but I’d really like to tackle those last 15-20# that have plagued me for most of my adult life. For my height (and I’m pretty average build), the healthy BMI range is 122-164#. That means I’m not overweight, but I’m damn close, and I’m tired of feeling like that. I want to feel sexy in a pair of jeans instead of self conscious about the muffin top. I want to feel confident in a clingy dress instead of self conscious about my flabby arms and tummy. I can do this! I’m feeling great about tracking my calories again – it’s always such an eye opener to have to honestly write down what you’re eating in a day.
