Weigh-in Wednesday 8.26.15

Good morning!

It’s weigh-in Wednesday again, so it’s time to post this week’s results!:

"--66.4"

“–66.4”

Yep, that’s where I was the week before last. Just a measly little gain of 0.2 lbs, so no biggie…still doesn’t bump me up back into the 170s, so I’m cool with it. I was honestly SO surprised that I didn’t gain more…I didn’t have a great handle on my eating this week, AND I added weight lifting back into the mix. Here’s what it looked like:

Tuesday: 30 min elliptical, 30 min weightlifting (arms)
Wednesday: 60 min yoga
Thursday: 45 minute walk (it was too nice outside for the gym!)
Friday: rest
Saturday: 30 minute bike ride to and from gym, 30 min weight lifting (legs) @ gym
Sunday/monday: rest

OK, so that whole riding my bike to the gym and then doing LEGS at the gym?! TERRIBLE PLAN. TUUUURRIBLE. I was so friggin’ sore on Sunday, Monday, and even some yesterday. It was AWFUL. I haven’t been that sore in a long time. So, that’s why I was pretty sure I was gonna see a 2 or 3 lb gain on the scale. Hoping that next week or the week after I’ll see a loss since I’m trying to lift consistently from now on. Here’s what I have planned for this week:

Tuesday (last night): 30 minute bike ride to/from gym and ARMS lifting..this was a much better plan lol
Wednesday: 60 min yoga
Thursday: 30 min treadmill or elliptical, 30 min lifting (legs)–and I’ll be DRIVING to the gym this night haha
Friday: rest, most likely, or maybe a short walk
Saturday: 30 min bike ride to/from gym, 30 min lifting (arms)
Sunday: 30 or 45 min walk w/ dog
Monday: rest

Yay! Well, hope you all are doing well. Our freshman move onto campus this Friday, so we are excited to get them here–other students will follow and we will start classes next Thursday! I am ready to have students back on campus. We in admissions don’t get the summers off, so it gets really quiet around here!

Weigh-in Wednesday 8.19.15

Hi, friends!

Weigh-in Wednesday this week. Didn’t know what to expect since I had worked out a lot but also ate A LOT, and it was my second full week not paying for Weight Watchers, but still counting points:

"--66.6"

“–66.6”

OMG IT’S 66.6 LOL LOL. Jk I don’t care about that! But it’s a small loss of 0.2 lbs. I’m cool with it! A little at a time has been my motto. This puts me at 169.4, which is pretty dang good in my book. I’d love to be down to 165 by the time Disney World vacation/honeymoon rolls around in late December, but we shall see!

I did a great job working out last week:

Tuesday (skipped for once a month viola playing @ church service)
Wednesday: 60 min yoga
Thursday: 30 min elliptical
Friday: 60 min yoga
Saturday: 60 min walking
Sunday: 30 min walking
Monday: rest

So, it was a pretty good week. I started this week off strong last night with a 30 minute elliptical session and weight machines–arms. It has been a few months since I have done weights, and I think my weight loss has slowed down because of it–so, back to weights! Here’s what I plan for the rest of the week:

Wednesday (tonight): 60 min yoga
Thursday: ride my bike to the Y!!!! then do weights–legs, then ride back. I don’t need to do cardio there since I’ll be riding my bike to and from if the weather is good!! If it’s raining, I’ll just drive and do elliptical or something +weights
Friday: 60 min yoga
Saturday: 30 min elliptical (or other, treadmill maybe? idk yet), weights–arms
Sunday: 30 min walk w/ dog
Monday: rest

So far, so good! I have already busted the diet part of this week but I’m cool with it. I still have 23/32 activity points to eat PLUS my weeklies if I dig into them, so it’s fine. I bought a box of oatmeal cream pies at the store (um WHAT WAS I THINKING) and then this morning I had a GIANT cappuccino muffin w/ chocolate chips and a grande coffee, but I’ve only had 1/2 the coffee because I am so full! I think I won’t be drinking the rest, lol. At any rate, I’m still feeling good. Love y’all, and hope your weigh-ins are great! See ya next week!

Weigh-in Wednesday 8.12.15

Hi y’all!

Another Wednesday, another weigh-in. I thought I’d gain or maintain this week because it was my first week not paying for WW AND it’s that time of the month, but look at this!:

"--66.4"

“–66.4”

That’s a loss of 0.4 lbs, yay! It’s not much, but it puts me back in the 160s–at 169.6. I’ve officially bumped down to 27 points a day, which is just one point away from the LOWEST point count per day you can even have in Weight Watchers, 26. So that’s pretty exciting! I did do a great job w/ workouts last week:

Tuesday: 30 min dance fitness
Wednesday: 60 min yoga
Thursday: 30 min walk w/ dog (originally planned on 60 min dance fitness, but I was SUPER sore from the combo of two previous workouts)
Friday: 30 min elliptical
Saturday: 30 min elliptical
Sunday: rest

So, I’m pretty proud of myself! This week I probably won’t get as much, but here’s what I’m planning:

Tuesday (last night): rest, we had a monthly church service where I play viola
Wednesday: 60 min yoga
Thursday: 30 min elliptical
Friday: 60 min yoga
Saturday: 30 min elliptical
Sunday: 30 min walk w/ dog

We’ll see how that goes–so far, so good, but it’s only Wednesday! Hope y’all have great weigh ins–nothing else all that exciting going on here!

Weigh-in Wednesday 8.5.15

Hey y’all, I almost forgot to post today! Whoops. Here are today’s results:

"--66.0"

“–66.0”

Yeah, so that’s a loss of 2.2 lbs. Nice! I was honestly SUPER surprised about this because I did end up going to GenCon for a night/day, and therefore ate ALL OF THE THINGS and drank ALL OF THE BEER. But I’m pretty sure I’ve lost weight each year at GenCon because of the phenomenal amount of walking that I do, so I’m down with this. Plus I ACTUALLY got back to yoga last week, so that was super exciting. Going back tonight, can’t wait! It’s one of my fave parts of the week.

Here’s a pic of me and the hubs from GenCon, we had a blast as usual, even though we weren’t there for all 4 days this year!

Yesterday, I took a HUGE step. I canceled my Weight Watchers subscription! Let’s face it, people. I’ve lost 103 pounds over the past 3ish years, and I am basically a plan expert at this point (even if WW doesn’t consider me one or pay me to be one, lol). I am still counting points and tracking everything I eat, the only difference is that I’m NOT paying Weight Watchers to give me an app to calculate points and write it all down–so, I just do it myself. I can pretty much look at anything and guess the point value, being pretty accurate most of the time. Plus, I know how to be reasonable now. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Weight Watchers and am not doing this to hate on them–they helped me lose 103 pounds, for God’s sake! BUT I need to save some $ each month and this is a good way to do it. I’ll still be weighing in once a week, tracking my food/points, and checking in on the blog. I found a site that calculates how many points a day I should be eating, and it’s basically in line with what Weight Watchers told me–so, if I lose more weight, I know when and how much to adjust. Yay!

Hope y’all have great weigh-ins. That’s it for me this week!
