Baby steps

Baby steps.  A few steps forward.  A few steps not so forward.  And a baby on the way.  Yes, I think we are about two weeks away from meeting our baby.  Sort of surreal.  And as much as my mind remains in babyland, I still want to lose some pre-baby weight.  Ha -- I could say this weight was all gained during my maternity, right?! 

Anyway, here's the stats...and for what it's worth, I am trying to remain positive.

Weight-  0.8
Weekly loss-  +.4
Overall loss-  0.8 

I am not going to waste time talking about my loss and what went well.  I know I need to catapult myself forward and what I've been doing thus far isn't quite enough.

Actually, I take it back...I do want to talk about what didn't work this week-

1-  I ate out at Wood Ranch with my Adoption Mama group.  While I tried to stay on point with healthy eating, I know all the sodium doesn't help.
2-  Hollywood Bowl.  I don't know how bad the eating seemed okay but I was not tracking what I ate so that doesn't help.
3-  I didn't write things down daily.  This is a MUST.  And I keep reading it needs to be done prior to me consuming the food.  I think I should try it.
4-  I drank water but I didn't track it.
5-  No Curves except one day. 
6-  I walked some but didn't track it.
7-  I didn't plan meals.  We were busy and I sort of put it together as I went.  Not a good plan.

So, this week:
1-  I am going to record what I eat before I eat it.
2-  Plan meals.  I've gotta do it.  It saves money, saves time, and overall contributes to weight loss.
3-  Walk 5 miles.
4-  Go to Curves 3 times.
5-  Track 64 oz of water daily.

I am sticking to these five this week.  Good starting point.
