Our Workout Plan: Zumba 1 night/wk, 1 weekend workout (60 min) We busted our butts this weekend and hit a kickboxing class on Saturday morning, went to the gym for another hour on Sunday, and last night did Zumba! If our schedules allow, we’re gonna try to do that kickboxing class more often… it’s killer!
My Goal: Break 130lbs by February 22nd.
Week 2 Weigh-in: 132. Down 0.2 from last week – which doesn’t seem like much, but I have a feeling these last few pounds are going to be the hardest, so every little bit helps!
Weight Lost: 5.4lbs. Only 3lbs to go in 6 weeks. So if I wanna stay on track, I need to lose a half pound a week. My future weigh-ins should look like this:
- Week 11: 131.5
- Week 12: 131
- Week 13: 130.5
- Week 14: 130
- Week 15: 129.5
- Week 16: 129
Clothing Size: 6. But my pants are super-big. I noticed this week that my body is really changing. My huge butt, isn’t that huge now. And my legs are looking thinner… pretty exciting! I think I’ll try on my goal (size 4) jeans next week at my weigh-in.
Eating & Drinking: I’ve been good about eating at work and during the day. I did cheat a bit when my aunt and uncle visited…. I had a slice of Sara Lee pie and nachos at the Celtics game… but that’s not too bad. I’m trying to drink more water and have almost nixed out soda. I have a sip here and there but never a glass to myself.
Sleeping: I had a rough week with Avery. The little bugger thought it would be fun to wake up at 430 & 530 the past week. Oh dear have I been tired! I’ll catch up this weekend though because we’re going to visit Grammy & Grampy.
FIT BIT: I LOVE my fit bit. I forgot it in the bathroom this morning though (major bummer). Yesterday and the day before I hit over 10,000 steps each day. I average 3-4k a day, so those were big days.
Thoughts: I think I need to buckle down on eating well and consistently working out to knock off these last few pounds. I remember these being the hardest to get rid of years ago. I just need to keep switching up my workout and making sure I burn more each day than I eat. The fit bit keeps track of calories burned, and although I don’t ‘count’ calories, I am mindful of what I eat and how it adds up. I always weigh what I eat against how many calories I’ve burned so far that day.
And to follow up with my 13 in 2013 idea last week… I think I’ll do it. I’ve looked up some training routines for 5k’s, and it seems like a great way to keep myself in shape after I meet my goal weight. I would only need to workout every other day and only 30-40 minutes… so that seems manageable.
Oh and guess what I got???? New shoes!!! More details later today…
Next Week Goals & Ideas: Run a few miles on my mom’s treadmill this weekend in VT & Zumba one night during the week.
Haw do you kick those last few pesky pounds?
