All right, so this is Week 4 for the Fitness Friday group, but it’s my Week 2. I’ve also joined a weight-loss challenge sponsored by The Babywearing Workout. You can read more about that by clickingÂ HERE.
Current Weight:Â My goal for this week was to weigh in at 174 lbs., and I weighed in at 173 this morning!
Activity Performed:Â I didn’t meet my exercise goal this week. I’d planned to double my effort; instead, I really slacked off. I’ve just been fatigued and unmotivated all week. I did about 20 or so minutes of light aerobics and them some random calisthenics (pushups, crunches, etc.) throughout the week.
Diet:Â I’m still using MyFitnessPal, which I highly recommend to everyone. Even if you’re not trying to lose weight, it can be a real eye opener to see exactly how many calories you’re approximately consuming. Last Friday was my “cheat” day when my foodie friend from The Fresh Kitchen cooked an amazing belated birthday dinner for me and my hubby. It would have been fine if that was my only cheat day, but then I cooked vanilla chocolate banana bread on Saturday, and ate about half of it between then and Monday. I won’t say I went overboard this past weekend, because I didn’t eat a pint of ice cream or pig out on fast food or anything, but I did eat over my allotted calories. I did do better with my water intake.
Goals for next week:
- I would LOVE to weigh in at 170 lbs.; however, I would be happy if I weigh in at 171 with a 2 lb. loss.
- I’m going to keep it simple and plan to do 30-minutes of cardio at least 3 times, plus my random calisthenics.
- I’ll keep up my calorie counting, making sure I keep a healthy balance.
