Another good week doing what I need to be doing! I gained .05 this week, but I am not worried — I have been tracking everything and exercising and will just keep moving forward.
I have made a good amount of progress in my #bikinicountdownchallenge and should finish it completely by tomorrow — SIX DAYS ahead of schedule. I am super proud of myself for finishing something I set out to do. There have been many days I did not feel like going to the gym, but I knew I had to get it done.
For years, I’ve not felt like monitoring my portions or getting exercise — which is exactly why I’m almost 32 years old and not happy with the way I look or feel. Countless summers, milestones and deadlines for my weight loss have come and gone with no results. I’m not putting a time frame on anything this time. I am creating goals and completing them one meal, one day and one month at a time.
Week of January 24th
Weight Watchers: I’ve been a trackstar the entire month of January and I will be continuing with this trend. I’ve been trying to pre-track some meals so I see how I can incorporate some treats into my day. With my birthday on Saturday and Super Bowl on Sunday, I know it’s going to be a big weekend of indulging. I plan on using my weeklies and watching portion sizes, then working hard all week earning back some activity points. Here’s how January has shaped up so far according to my Weight Watchers Progress Report:
I voiced my frustration over on Twitter about gaining a little bit this month, despite tracking and getting over 100 activity points — I feel so much better in my clothing and actually feel a bit more solid in my legs and arms, so I need to take measurements and track my progress that way. Great advice from my fellow weight watchers!
Fitness: This week has been a good one for getting in my steps. We took a trip to Disneyland, which always allows me to get in a good amount of steps. Since I am going to hit my 100 Miles in January goal tomorrow night, I am going to start the Couch to 5k training program on Monday and keep the streak going.
Fashion/Beauty: Nothing much to report on this topic — I am trying to take better care of my skin and taking my Extra Strength Hair, Skin & Nails softgels from Nature’s Bounty. I have not taken them consistently enough to notice a difference, but will definitely report back once I take them as directed. While I plan on continuing my fitness goals into February, there are going to be some additional challenges I want to give myself to take better care of my skin — such as drinking water and taking vitamins.
What I’m Cooking
This week I am keeping it simple! Here’s what’s going on in my kitchen this week so far:
