Sunday Update on a Monday

So I'm a day late, but not a dollar short!

I skipped weighing in yesterday morning as we went for Hibachi on Friday night for my daughter's birthday, and as any good (former) Weight Watcher's participant knows, never weigh in a day or two after Chinese food. Hibachi is not quite the same, but I'm sure the sauces have plenty of sodium, and plenty of sodium = plenty of retained water = higher weight. 

Anyway, I weighed in this morning and am happy to report another 1.2 lbs down. 


I'm newly inspired in seeing that. I'll be honest, I wasn't sure how the weekend was going to force the scale to treat me.  I didn't go overboard, but I did have some cake to celebrate her special day, you know. I just couldn't not. 

I mean, I suppose I could have skipped it, but it was my baby's 5th Birthday. She only turns 5 once and all. And I skipped a workout that day, too. Oops. But I did work out this week. I did two C25K (Week 2) workouts outside, one on Monday, and one on Weds. Then I did it on the treadmill yesterday in my new Skeletoes shoes. (More on that another time!)

 And on Thursday and Saturday I did the new Walk Away the Pounds DVD I bought, the one mile power walk. Which was pretty cool. About twenty minutes worth, but worth it. I feel good. I'm tracking my calories but not going crazy, and I feel motivated and am still working at it!

Anyway - thanks for sticking with me and reading along. I think I've finally come to realize that no matter how hard I try to watch my food intake, no matter how hard I work at eating healthy and maintaining a minimum amount of calories, if I'm not working out along with those behaviors it's all pretty much for nada. So for now - I'll keep on keepin' on. 

Hope you're doing the same!

  1. I'm a little jealous about this Hibachi business. Yum. ;-)

    Keep sticking w/ it - you're doing great!

  2. You allowed yourself a piece of cake and still lost weight this week. That's success! It means you can fit treats in while still doing this thing!

  3. Keep on, girl!!! Every pound counts!

  4. I think we all have to have dessert sometimes..right?!
