Blogging Funk? Check.
I haven't been motivated to blog for the past week. Call it stress. Call it crazy busy mom syndrome. But I have been in a funk! I am trying to work my way out of it by coming up with fun blog posts but so far, FAILURE! I am open to suggestions!
But on to Weight Watchers Wednesday!
I always weight myself on Friday morning before I shower (and after I tinkle, of course). For me that's the best time because, I have worked my but off for 4 or 5 days and not cheated even once. This past Friday I was down 2 more pounds. :) SUCCESS! Still have a long way to go but progress = success for me these days!
The gym is harder than ever! It's hard to go when I don't see my baby from 7:30 til 5. I just want to rush home and cuddle her! But 4 or 5 days a week (including weekends) I am hitting the gym. But only for an hour or an hour and a half at the most! BIG difference from the 2 hours I used to put in 5 days a week when I lost all that weight at the end of 2008. I am doing weight training 2-3 days a week but my main focus is running and abs. I am training for some races so I am a running machine. My 1st race is Feb. 6th. Adam and I will be running the 5K.
When I went on that "diet" at the end of 2008, I was losing 4-7 lbs a week. Of course I hit a plateau for like 3 weeks where I lost nothing or only lost 1-2 lbs! But over the course of 3 months I managed to lose 25 lbs! It's coming off slower this time and my body's shape is different but the pounds are slowly melting away and my hips are VERY SLOWLY getting back in place!
I am saving all of my FLEX points for 2 cheat meals on the weekends! If I don't have something to look forward to, I will FAIL MISERABLY at "Getting Thin in 2010!" Here are the things I am eating...
Breakfast: Fiber One Chocolate & Oats bar (3 points) OR Blueberry Bagel with one tbsp of Fat Free Strawberry Cream Cheese (4 points)
Lunch: Grilled Cheese with light bread (2 points) with baked lays (3 points) OR Tomato sandwich (1 point) with baked lays (3 points) and 17 turkey pepperonis (3 points)
Dinner: 1.5 cups of Ronzoni Smart Taste penne pasta with Paul Newman marinara & one slice of light bread with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray (6 points) OR Veggie Chili (and by veggie I mean tomato and beans with Chili-O chili mix) (2 points) & 10 Fat Free Crackers (2 points) OR Homemade Flatbread pizza (7 points)
I have mentioned before that I am SUPER picky. Like, beyond picky. So picky that I really don't eat veggies at all! I have found what works for me so I pretty much eat the same 4 or 5 meals ALL OF THE TIME! So for all of you other picky eaters, next week I will do a post with my "picky recipes"!
To keep me accountable, here are some stats so you get an idea of where I've been and where I am going :) (I can't believe I am about to put these for all the world to see-well, blogger world anyway)
164- How much I weighed before I started my diet in Oct 2008
139- The smallest I got In Dec 2008
145- Weight when I found out I was pregnant
210- Weight the day I delivered
166- What I weighed last Friday
18.4- Number of miles I have run in 2010
My first goal is 145 then I will get the last 5 off after I reach that goal. I always teetered between 140 and 145 so if I can get to 145 1st I will be THRILLED! So I have 21 lbs to go! If I continue to lose 2 lbs a week it should take me about 11 weeks to get there. That seems like FOREVER away but that's right at bathing suit season and one week before my 2nd anniversary! MOTIVATION? Yes! I have a long journey ahead of me but I am on the fit train for the long haul and thankfully so is Adam! That always makes it SO MUCH EASIER!
