 Current Stats:

MAYBE 179 lbs. Okay, so here’s what happened. My goal for this week was to get into the 170s, but it seemed like every time I weigh myself I was still 180. Well, I weighed myself yesterday morning, and I was ecstatic to see the scale said 179 lbs. and X oz. Well, during my 2-second happy dance from the bathroom to the living room, I forgot how many ounces I was over 179. I wanted to have the exact amount, so I could input it in MyFitnessPal. When I weighed myself the second time (just a few seconds later, remember), the scale read 180 lbs., 2 oz. -_- I changed the position of the scale on the bathroom floor a few times, but alas! The 179 was gone. So I guess I gained 4 oz. during my happy dance.

Activities Performed:

55 minutes of cardio at the gym

1 hour of leisurely walking

It definitely wasn’t my best week for working out, that’s for sure. We were busy preparing for a dinner party and my parents’ visit next week. I will be going to the gym this afternoon though.

Diet Changes:

I was doing pretty well with my diet this week…until yesterday. I went to the grocery store a couple hours before dinner, and while I was there I realized I hadn’t eaten breakfast or lunch. Then I walked through the potato chip aisle. Hmmmm, THAT looks good. Yup, I ate almost an entire bag. That was about 7 servings. Then I had dessert after dinner. I’m not beating myself up over it. One bad day out of seven isn’t the end of the world.

Next Week’s Goals:

To definitively-no-doubt-about-it get into the 170s!!!

  1. OMGosh I do the exact same thing! (shift on the scale) And then I get mad when I can’t make it a few ounces less haha. You did more than I did this week, I’d love to say I did some cardio or walking – good job! And yeah, don’t beat yourself up over the chips… you did good this week!

  2. Great job this week! You got in more exercise than me, that’s for sure!!! I’ve totally been beating myself up for the little things like a glass of wine, Pop Tarts for breakfast, last night I had Brandy slush, heck last night for dinner we ate nothing but fried food, so bad!!
