Well I am happy to report that during Weight Watchers week 5 I lost 1.6 pounds! Yay! If you read last week I gained almost a pound and that was super discouraging, but also motivating. It sucked yes, but it also was the swift kick in the butt that I needed to buckle down again and retool my routine.
What Went Well This Week:
This week I set my app so it looked like I only had 30 weekly points plus instead of 49. As of writing this at 8:30 Tuesday night, I still have 6 points of the 30 left, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to eat at least some of them. I also earned 19 activity points! Hot damn! My walks since it has warmed up have definitely helped up those activity points–and it doesn’t even feel like work! I love being outside walking and talking with my baby girl.
She’s such a great little encourager!
My workouts from this week:
Thursday: Strength Training–this workout
Friday: My new kickboxing dvd! This was supposed to be a cardio workout, but I was sore everywhere the next day! (I used weighted gloves.)
Monday: Walk 40 minutes
Tuesday: Strength Training
I’m looking to add in more runs and walks as the weather stays nice and keep up with my strength training. I’d like to be able to run a continous 5K by the end of March.
Goals for Next Week:
- Stick to my 30 weekly pointsplus budget
- Get 15+ activity points–it would be awesome if I could get 20!
- Track, track, track. Honestly, I put this every week, but it really is the key to being successful. You can’t kid yourself, you have to work the plan and that is tracking!
I’ve lost a total of 6 pounds over 5 weeks (even with a setback) and I’m pleased with that! I know that weight loss is a slow process and I don’t have a body type that sheds weight quickly or easily. I’ve just got to keep putting the work in and let the results come.
Also in a non-scale victory, I did six military style pushups!! What?! That is more than I’ve ever done in my life. I’m pretty excited!
What victories have you had in your healthy living and/or fitness goals?
Do you tend to lose weight quickly or slowly? (If it’s quickly I officially hate you. Jk. I’m just extremely jealous!)
