If you’ve read any of my previous Fitness Friday posts, you’re probably confused why my post title says week 3. Well, the Fitness Friday participants decided to start over after the holidays. Works for me! I refused to stress about my weight during Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year’s. The yummy food is half the fun! Now, I probably should have exercised more, but I at least maintained where I was…which was the exact same weight I’ve been for months now. Ahhhh!
Everyone else is in Week 3 of Fitness Friday. This is really my Week 1, because I just started a week ago. I’ve also joined a weight-loss challenge sponsored by The Babywearing Workout. You can read more about that by clicking HERE.
Current Weight:Â The good news is that I kept saying after the holidays, I was going to crack down and things would be different, and so far I’m sticking to my word. A week ago I was 180 lbs. I’m now 176 lbs. Four pounds in one week is not too shabby at all (don’t you dare tell me it’s all water weight! I need this motivation!). =D
Activity Performed:Â I did cardio twice and strength training twice, plus a lot of random push-ups and ab exercises when the mood struck me.
Diet: I did awesome this week! I used MyFitnessPal to keep track of my calories, and I concentrated on eating healthy foods and staying under my calorie limit.
Goals for next week:
- I’d like to lose at least two pounds and weigh in at 174 lbs.
- I will double my workout effort. I’ve been aiming for 30 minutes at a time, which I think is fine for now. My joints are still recovering from pregnancy, and that’s definitely affecting me. BUT I’d like to do more 30-minutes sessions of cardio and strength training.
- I’ll keep up my calorie counting, but add in more veggies and water.
