I feel much better about posting this week’s check-in. Today’s numbers 128.4! So I lost 2.6 lbs! I’m still a little higher than I want to be but I definitely feel a lot better about being back in the 120s. This challenge is definitely not going the way I have planned but I am determined not to beat myself up over it. Poor Abby has been sick 3 different times since this challenge started and taking care of her has definitely taken a priority.
I still haven’t updated my measurements because somehow my tape has gone missing but its on my shopping list for this evening!
Here are my goals for the challenge:
- Hit the gym on my lunch break at least 3 days a week. Got to the gym once this week but also walked with Abby on Sunday evening (after she got over her bug and before I came down with it).
- Remove all soda from my diet instead replacing it with water and other healthy drinks. Not completely gone but I have dramatically cut back and if I am drinking soda now it is at least diet.
- Prepare dinner at home at least 4 nights a week, trying a new recipe at least once. Decent on preparing meals at home but have not tried any new recipes. Have one on the schedule for this week though!
- Lose at least 5 inches overall throughout the course of the challenge. TBD
