Weight loss check-in

First, I just realized that I don’t have a “weight loss” category set up on this blog….which may be one insight into why I haven’t actually lost consistently in MONTHS.

But, the real news is that I’m down 1.2 lbs this week and I plan to continue this trend.

I tried running at the gym last night and my shins were aching. I’ve been putting off buying new sneakers but I’m clearly in need of getting them ASAP. I’ve been wearing this pair for a year (they were a wedding present from my husband!) so they’ve made their mark and it’s time for them to make room for a new pair.

Instead of running, I did the elliptical. Not the most exciting, but the least impact given the sneaker situation.

Motivate Monday

Let’s start by reviewing the results from last week:

Weight loss: + 0.8 lbs

Exercise minutes: 100

Calories burned: 920

Daily goals met: I didn’t make goals for last week, hence the weight gain and the limited exercise!  It is finals time, but that’s no excuse.  I came off a lovely anniversary weekend with my husband where I indulged, but still tracked.  Then I thrust myself into a really busy week and turned to unhealthy eating habits (twice, ugh) and really messed with my mind and my weight.  Onwards and upwards though – every misstep is an opportunity to grow and learn.
