Weight Loss: -0.4
Struggles: Being sick with digestive issues for half the week.
Non-Scale Victories: My pants definitely feel loser. I've still got a ways to go before I fit in my pre-pregnancy size, but my "fat pants" are a little loser. Every inch, or centimeter even, is one step towards meeting my goal! Oh, and I did I mention I did great at tracking? So proud of myself! More info on that below.
Goal for next week: Exercise three days this week. Trying to build it into my routine and not make excuses. (i.e. The baby is hungry, the baby's diaper needs changed, etc...)
Reflections: So this week was interesting. Looking back at the week I did pretty well at tracking. I only skipped two days this past week! I will continue working on tracking this week so that I get into the habit of tracking. They say it takes three weeks to build a habit so I will do my best to stick with it! I am so grateful for the iPhone ap which allows me to track on the go, or even when stuck on the couch nursing the little man. It's a lifesaver!
I'm disappointed in my loss this week. It's a loss and I have to be satisfied with that, but it's not what I was hoping for. I worked very hard to stay on plan and track what I ate this week. I didn't get a ton of exercise in with being sick, but you would think that being sick would have helped me drop the weight. It's very frustrating, but a loss is a loss. I just have to remind myself that every little step is a step in the right direction.
I'm choosing to focus on exercise this week because I have really slacked since having Liam. I walked almost every day I was pregnant with him so I should at least be continuing that! I also need to exercise and tone up to fit into my dress for the Marine Corps Ball this year. I decided I didn't want to spend money on a new dress this year since it's our sixth ball so I could easily wear something no one here has seen. Plus, it's good incentive to fit into something I already own. It won't be last years dress since that was at my official pre-pregnancy weight, but it will still require some work to get into the dress I plan to wear!
P.S. A little off topic, but you have to see my cute little blogging buddy today!
