I'm a little late getting this in... sorry! Easter break goes til Monday around here!
Last weeks challenge!
Weight: I'd like to lose at least a pound again. Nope, I didn’t! I actually gained, and was very frustrated. I’m back to pre-gain weight today though.
NSV: I have some pants ... they are size 20 and I'd like to fit them by the end of the challenge. I fit a 22/24 now and I can zip the 20's but serious muffin top there. But for this week I'd like my tightest 22's to fit. So I didn’t even try these on because … well, obviously they wouldn’t fit because I had gained.
Exercise: C25K Week 2 Fail as well! I didn’t get much exercise in because on school break, church activities, family things and a sick child. And then it poured here and I couldn’t get out on the road. Really muddy!
Nutrition: My calorie goal is 1520 a day, and I'll be tracking! Did pretty good here. I think my gain was probably somewhat due to salt. Barbeque! So, once I was back to normal eating (less salt) my lbs went down quickly.
Mini-challenge for the week. Do an exercise you don't normally do. This was probably the most fun! And the most painful afterwards. I played volleyball! I haven’t played in years and this group of ladies was just there to have a good time and unwind. Wednesday and Thursday I was in a lot of pain. And even today, a week later, my neck still hurts. My arms were bruised, too but I wore those marks with pride. I want to go tonight again, but I’ll have to see if I get a babysitter to come over or if I take my kids with me or if I just don’t go tonight.
Ready for Summer Challenge, beginning weight
Goals for week 3
Weight: I’d like next week to show my weight at 255lbs. That’s a 5 lbs loss for a week, but remember, I’m already down a few from my last weigh in! Aim high!!
NSV: I’m going to try on that size 20 pair of jeans I have again. Also, I’d like to set up my sewing machine and start sewing again.
Exercise: C25K week 2 still needs to be done. Also on alternate days I’d like to do the 30 day shred. I want at least 5 days of exercise crossed off this week!
Nutrition: This one is going to be hard! I’ve decided to go low-carb for 2 weeks. I’ll be avoiding flour and sugar and starchy foods. Wish me luck!!
