I didn’t have high hopes when I stepped on the scale at Weight Watchers this morning. Last week’s mediocre loss (0.4) and no loss the week before had shaken my confidence in my efforts and the program.
But there it was. 135.8 – a lost of 2.6. The loss puts me at 9.4 down since having Miles and 13 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight (although I think I’d be happy with anything in the 120s).
Say it with me: Huzzah!
I spent a lot more time on my feet this week. I walked or ran with Denali all but one day and then there was some epic mileage with Saturday’s Fort-4-Fitness. I walked to and from the car, ran the 4-mile race, walked to the half-marathon course and ran a few intervals with L. By the way, L had an epic PR for the half. Just had to put that out there.
Food-wise, I made White Chicken Chili in the slow cooker, giving me something healthful to take to work every day.
What’s not working
This hole motherhood thing. Kidding. Sort of. I feel like I can either walk/run with the dog or do weights – I can’t do both, even if I do one in the a.m. and the other in the p.m. I really want to make time to do Jillian Michaels’ “Ripped in 30” at least twice a week. Or even once.
Goals for the week
We’ll be on the road this weekend for my brother’s weekend – a weekend that will be full of family, food and fun. I am taking my sneakers in the hopes that I will run but more than anything I want to make the best choice in each situation.
What’s working for you this week – it doesn’t have to be healthy related – and what’s not?
