Welcome back to Trim the Fat Thursday! It's been quite an interesting week for me. I had several realizations, so let's recap. Here's my Wii snapshot for this morning. Please ignore the "previous numbers" listed because I mistakenly weighed in yesterday, which threw things off.
This Week's BMI is 38.2, which is down .43 from last week. Yay, progress!
This week's weight is 215.6, which is down 2.4 from last week. Woo hoo!!
My goals from last week were:
1. Get in 3 workouts - CHECK!
2. Do a meal plan for the next week - FAIL
3. Lose 2 lbs - CHECK!
I cut out most of the sodas that I had been drinking which helped with the 2 lb loss. I also started using Sparkpeople (proud of me Michelle?) again to track my food intake. It never ceases to amaze me just how far off my estimation ability is when it comes to portion sizes. I also started weighing all my food again so that I can accurately record what I'm eating. It makes a HUGE difference!
I got the Biggest Loser for Wii game last week (thanks Dad!) and I can say that I am a HUGE fan of this program. It's got some things that are going to take some getting used to, but I like that I was able to choose a 12 week program that gives me tailored exercise programs, as well as tells me what my calorie intake should be. And yes, Jillian will even yell at you if you choose her as your trainer. Oh joy. In addition to some other activities and Wii Fit games, I have a feeling that this is really going to be successful this time!
While I wasn't able to get my meal planning accomplished, I did manage to clean out my entire pantry and both freezers, which is HUGE. Now that I have a clear picture of just what I have on hand, meal planning will be so much easier.
My goals for this next week are:
1. Get in 4 workouts
2. Lose 1 lb
3. Get a meal plan done for the week
