I’m now through week two of my weight loss plan and while my body seems to be changing shape with the working out, this week I didn’t loose any weight. It is a little discouraging, but I’ve been here before and I’m not going to let it slow me down. This weekend was a little bit of a challenge since I had a monthly card party at my house and fixed a bunch of food and people brought snacks. Plus I stayed up way too late playing cards and that threw my working out into a tailspin for the weekend.
Workout for the week:
I still got in four hours of Wii Active with an additional 3 hours of shoveling snow, although, I didn’t do any workouts Saturday or Sunday. Also today (Monday) I’m starting work on the basement since I was off work for Martin Luther King day and I haven’t worked out yet today. I still hope to work out but once my daughter gets home from daycare, it gets more difficult to get the workout in.
Thanks to input from Jenny, I’m trying to get in a few more servings of fruits and veggies each day. I also upped my skim milk to three servings a day to be sure I get enough calcium in. I did well all week, but then on Friday, I lost count of points and ate snacks and desserts at the party. I made an angle food cake with light cool whip and strawberry dessert which is my way to indulge but not have a lot of fat. Also, I enjoy pretzels when playing cards but more than a handful was too much. They were low fat but certainly still too many calories, so I got right back to eating my right number of points the next day.
It really helps me stay focused on my goals and resolution with all of the encouragement I am receiving, so thank you to all who follow the blog and comment on my progress.
Have another wonderful week and let’s do this together!!!
