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.
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 was...it 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.
