mortified mama week four

I'm sitting here laughing at myself, ladies. I just weighed in at 230 pounds, which made me want to cry at first. I thought the scale hadn't moved at all. Good thing I keep my little weight stat list at the bottom of these posts. Going back to look up last week's weight, I realized that I've lost 2 pounds! Woo-hoo! That's what I needed to lift my spirits this morning.

The week went fairly well. I did miss two days of exercise, on Thursday and Friday, but made up for it with longer sessions on Saturday and Sunday. In total, I met my five days of exercise goal, my water intake goal, and ate most of my fruits and veggies. Some days I ate more fruit than others. I think it balances out. Maybe?

To the Top Changes:
  1. I caught a brief glimpse of my cheekbones
  2. I danced my way through a whole zumba class.  Maybe not with the right steps, but I was still moving.
  3. I found that I was able to touch my toes.
  4. My pants are tight, but Auntie Flow is on her way to town and they aren't as tight as they would normally be.
  5. I feel GOOD after exercising, not like I just want to keel over and die.
So, there you have it.  I guess I'm doing pretty well.  You can't beat 2 pounds in a week.

For next week, I'm going to split my workout time between a half hour of cardio and a half hour of strength training 3 days this week.  The other two days I'll stick to an hour of cardio (that would be my zumba class.)

Weight Loss Stats:
Starting Weight: 233.5
Current Weight: 230
Goal Weight: 150
Pounds lost: 3.5/83.5

  5. Good job Linds, keep up the good work! Enjoyed going to Zumba with you, looking forward to becoming "regulars". :) Wondering if some of those techniques will also help with my performance in the bedroom... :)

  6. I am so glad that you are *feeling* good as well! For me, thats how the routine stuck. I started...well, I don't enjoy running, but I like how it makes me feel, and being able to do it. Otherwise I wouldn't. Same for eating better. I am so happy for you!


Tell me about it!
