Thursday Check-in

Being kind to myself this week really paid off! That fluke weigh-in last week was corrected on the scale this week and I had a total loss of 5.2 lbs! That brought me to my 5% milestone and up to a total of 12 lbs lost. I have to say that when I just focus and actually stay on the plan all week, it's a lot easier than when I don't track, try to guess and indulge too much.

I'm taking over the coordination of the WW program at work, so that's just gives me a little extra investment in the program, if that makes sense.

This week's goals

1. Keep tracking, it's working.

2. Get back to BodyPump classes - at least once a week.

3. Start the couch to 5K training program this week.

Last week's goals:

1. Don't let this week's slight gain get me off track. (should be easy enough, I'm feeling okay about it, if anything it motivated me more) ACCOMPLISHED

2. Make at least one class at the gym during the week and one yoga class on the weekend. ALMOST ACCOMPLISHED

3. Track 7 days. ACCOMPLISHED

4. Relax and be kind to myself! ACCOMPLISHED. Took the weekend off and spent it relaxing, doing small errands, cooking and baking. This was partially due to not feeling well, but it at least slowed me down enough to relax.

4. Try at last one recipe out of my new cookbooks: ACCOMPLISHED. Made muffins trom the Mark Bittman book and planning to make some sides from the Giada cookbook over the weekend. So far so good!


  1. what a great accomplishment, congrats! I always feel like these things help to stay focussed. Good job!

  2. Congrats! You're really doing well. 12 pounds is A LOT, even if it doesn't seem like it. And if you can lose 12, then you can lose however many you need to.
    I've always heard that getting past the first 10 pounds is the hardest part, because you want to give up. You've gotten past it.

  3. You are doing a wonderful job. CONGRATS!
