Weekly Weigh In

I didn’t share last week as we were on the road coming home from doctor appointments in Atlanta.  I also didn’t share because I was kinda bummed…  It’s so easy to be bad and so hard to be good.  I’m pretty sure there are lots of famous quotes and Bible passages that say the same thing.

Week one (two weeks ago now) of being back into normal life didn’t go as planned.  I found I had no motivation to get up and workout, and that I didn’t have much will power against the Ritz crackers and other things the girls would have out.  The motivation came later in the week when I stepped on the scale and was half a pound from 180.

Crossing over that tens digit is land I don’t want to go back too.  I said goodbye to that 8 and have no desire to see it again.  I also got rid of all clothes that were too big, and that has been a big motivator too.  I can’t afford to go back!

Now fast forward to week two and I’m down 2 lbs from that scary number I got so close too.  I tracked what I ate everyday (though I failed at tracking potluck church lunch yesterday), and got up and worked out 3 times last week.  I also got my RTIC mug and have been doing great with water!

My goals for this week:

  1. Track every day!
  2. Drink 3 bottles of water (in my RTIC mug).
  3. Workout or hit 10,000 steps at least 5 days.

I’m being light on the workouts this week because we have a lot on our plate.  If I can’t workout I’m striving for the steps goal which is surprisingly hard when you sit down most of the day.

Current Numbers:

Starting Out: 205
Last Week: 179.5
This Week: 177.6

I think I need a sticker chart for good days… or fruit or something.  I’m very reward focused just like my almost 4 year old.  Have any ideas for healthy rewards?
