The Sunday Skinny

I'm on cloud 9 this morning! Let's see why!

Starting Weight: 218.7 lbs
Last Week's Weight: 213.8 lbs
This Week's Weight: 209.0 lbs
+Gain/-Loss This Week: -4.9 lbs
+Gain/-Loss Overall: -9.7 lbs

Wow, I'm so pleased with this week's number! I have to thank you guys for all of the positive encouragement from last week's depressing rant. I was in a bad place and you guys really made me feel better.

This week was good for a lot of reasons. I've officially finished 3 weeks on the Blue Sky program, which means I'm 25% of the way done. I love number markers! I'm finally feeling like I've found my groove. I actually look forward to having veggies with my meals and I don't miss the bread at all. The sweets are still a little bit of a challenge, but I'm dealing.

Speaking of sweets, I have to confess that I broke down and ate a brownie yesterday. I had baked them with my kids on Friday (for Dr. Seuss's bday) and in a moment of weakness yesterday, I ate one. And I don't feel guilty about it. I have worked my ass off for weeks now, being strictly disciplined about every morsel that I eat and I feel like if I want to have a little splurge periodically, well, it's not the end of the world. However, I was less than thrilled that after I enjoyed that delicious brownie, that I proceeded to have a headache for the next 2 hours. Lesson learned. Smaller portion next time? Lol.

I have ramped up my workouts, working out 4 times this week, which is great! My Wii hasn't seen this much action since we got the thing, 3 years ago. Hubby & I volunteered to coach our oldest's soccer team this Spring, which should be interesting. Thankfully, hubby is the one with all of the athletic skill. I'm more of a team manager and moral support cheerleader. However, he assures me that I won't get away with not participating on the field. We'll see.

This week my goals are to get in another 4 workouts and to try 1 new recipe.

Thanks again for all of the support!

Oh my goodness! That is an AWESOME loss for the week. WAY TO GO!! Coaching soccer should be fun. I can't wait till my boys are old enough for it!

Way to go! Another great week... keep it up.

I feel like I should do add a little variety in my exercise. Walking is ok, but it does get old after a bit. I've been meaning to ask you, which Biggest Loser do you have for the Wii? I was looking on Amazon and there are a few different versions. There's BL Ultimate Workout, BL Challenge...

Yay! Keep up the great work.

I've noticed that I'm really liking the exercising. I've been peddling 4-5 times a week and now I'm lifting weights too. I want to start walking but this weather is irritating me. :)
