Saturday Scale Time

9 Jan

Last week’s #: 204.0

This week’s #: 196.0

HOLY CRAP!! I lost 8 pounds!! This is totaly awesome! In one week I have lost all but .6 pounds of the 8.6 I gained since the saturday before Christmas.

Lesson learned: I need my routine!! I went in to the holidays with the intention of being “good” but I wound up going a wee bit overboard and lounging around lazily way  too much!

Last night I posted my Perfect 10 update and there you can find my workouts for the week.

We had Outback curbside take away last Saturday and Sunday there was a frozen pizza incident.


breakfast – oatmeal with banana & sugar free syrup

snack – apple and hardboil egg

Lunch –  tilapia with brussel sprouts, acorn squash and 1/2 cup brown rice

Dinner – grilled chicken with butternut squash, asparagus and a BIG salad

This was a great week! I worked out! I ate great! I felt great! This week coming up will be just as awesome!!

I thought I would be bored of my food options and maybe I need a bit more variety I am ecstatic about the results. Not only did I lose 8 pounds but I feel amazing. I know that eating well is helping me to feel this awesome. I will splurge a bit  this weekend. I will add some variety this weekend but Monday – Friday I will eat the same way I did this week. My family enjoyed it for the most part but they are willing to do it again!

My Rethink My Shrink Goals are:

1. drink 80 oz of water daily I did this 5/7 days

2. take multi vitamin and glucosamine every day I remembered 5/7 days

3. make time for workouts I totally made time for me and my workouts!! I worked out all 5 work days!


This week was very successful!  How was your week?

    Everything I lost this week was from what I gained over the holidays too, but I was just happy to lose it. Lesson learned.
