And I’m getting it in under the wire. How sad that I can barely even make my self-imposed deadlines!
Honestly? I didn’t want to post today. At all.
In fact, I wanted to avoid the scale and camera and pretend it wasn’t Friday.
This wasn’t the best week fitness or food wise. I splurged a few times when I knew I shouldn’t. I didn’t make it to the gym once. Not once! With two birthdays (Dylan‘s and Andy’s) and a little bug (read: Wyatt tummy issues) AND some preliminary potty training attempts, I found the excuses outweighed my motivation.
I say “preliminary potty training” because we haven’t exactly given it our all, but that’s another story.
I mentioned on Twitter and my Facebook page yesterday, that I faced a few pitfalls this week, but I learned. What did I learn, you ask? I learned that I need to plan better. I need to stop leaving dinner brainstorming until 6PM when I’m too overwhelmed and tired to think clearly. I need to get up earlier AND get dressed and ready for my day as soon as I wake up, instead of lounging around in my PJs like I’m doing today… I need to commit each day to making health a priority and I need to have a realistic vision of how that’s going to happen every.single.day.
That being said, I didn’t do as badly as I thought. Or, my efforts last week bore their fruit this week. Either way, seeing some change was helpful to my mindset. Ok, maybe not seeing it in the mirror, but the numbers, which I will share again.
Let me just tell you, I took these pictures this morning and thought, “I don’t see any difference anywhere but maybe my chest. I look exactly the same as last week”. I was kind of right, but I was surprised about a couple of other areas.
This week’s measurements (also, I’m 5’9″):
- Weight: 168.5lbs (-3.5lbs, possibly some water weight)
- Waist: 32.5″ (-.5″)
- Hips: 42″ (no change)
- Bust: 38.5″ (-1.4″… I was right about that)
I ALSO lost 1 inch from my arms and thighs, which I didn’t track on here last week, but I did record on Weight Watchers:
I’m excited about some progress and looking forward to a better week. Dr. Oz shared some great advice about hunger this week. If you feel it in your stomach alone, you’re not hungry. You should feel hunger in your neck first. So think about that next time you think your starving! It makes a huge difference.
How was your week?
