Weigh In Wednesday

Happy hump day bloggies!

So today is Wednesday which means…time to step on the scale!

Today’s stats:

Starting weight: 230.2
Last week’s WI: 179.0 lbs
This week’s WI: 178.6 lbs
Lost: 0.4 lbs

Hey, I’ll take it. And it’s not too bad considering I didn’t work out a lick over the weekend, ate ribs and a mondo bowl of ice cream Saturday night, burger Sunday, and some tortilla chips yesterday.

I have realized (again) that I do much better when I set goals for myself. Daily, weekly, monthly, whatever. I love to make a to-do list and then cross things off when they get done. Unemployment (hopefully soon to be over) has thrown me off-kilter a bit. But I headed to Staples yesterday to get refills for my pretty pink planner and have already made myself to-do lists for the next 3 days. Yay. So, here are my fitness-and-weight-related goals for the week:

1. Follow my workout schedule the best I can. It’s tough, but I want to kick things into high gear and get the last bit of weight off. I still haven’t totally finished planning workouts for the month, but I’m set for the next week.

2. Track every day. Things got thrown off a bit this week with being away and eating out/eating out of the ordinary. But this week I’m back on it.

3. Try a new recipe. I am so used to throwing together meat+veggie with what’s on hand. I like trying new things, and new recipes. So I’ll keep you posted on that.

4. Avoid impulse food purchases. I didn’t have too much trouble with this the past week, but when I am bored and browsing the aisles of the store things sometimes land in my cart. This week, they won’t.

Hope you all have a great week. Now, I’m off to kick my butt!

No leg warmers here!

Seeing as how I don’t belong to a gym right now I’m sticking to the my running sneaks and DVDs. I’m going to be creating a set schedule in the near future, because I do much better when I have a schedule to stick to. It also makes it harder to skip a workout when I see something written in for that day.

As you also know, I’ve been Shredding. Today was day 7, and I have to say that I’m ready to move on to level 2. But I want things to be even, so I’ll be doing 10 of each level. It is getting to be A LOT easier though.
I was planning on going for a run today, but between unpacking from the weekend, chatting with my mom (she turned 50 today!) and general laziness I didn’t. I did hit up Walmart for some much needed groceries and a pair of 10 lb hand weights, cuz I’m gettin’ ripped.

Back to a workout plan. Here’s what I’ll be working with:

Just ordered these puppies from Zappos today!

I think I’ll alternate NMTZ and BFBM with the Shred and running. I’ll let you know. And the shoes are Brooks Ravenna’s. I have these now, but in a blue/silver combo. I thought I’d pretty it up for the next 8 months. I can’t wait to get them.

Did No More Trouble Zones for the first time today (I just got it Friday) and OMG, Jillian never fails to kick my ass. I may have a tough time running tomorrow morning.

Planning on a 3 mile run tomorrow, then Shred L1D8, then some ab work.

Here’s to a great Monday!
