So, after losing 4 lbs in Week 1, I gained 0.6 lbs in Week 2. It's not a big deal, but I'm still kind of bummed about it because I brought it on myself. I weigh myself daily, but the only weight that I record in Sparkpeople is on Sunday. All week I was around 190.5lbs. Then I WAY overate for the past couple of days, so I am back up to 192.2lbs as of this morning. I worked out 5 days this week, so I feel great about that. I just need to figure how to control myself on weekends. Of course, it doesn't help that my husband insists on buying us "treats". He doesn't have a weight problem and although he buys it "just for him", we both know if it's there, I'm going to eat it. And I will acknowledge that I did track everything and we used to do way worse.
Anyway, I'll try to work on it for next weekend. I'll be at my parents and usually, it's not a good thing foodwise (and wine-wise). They usually have things that we don't buy/make, like ice cream and cookies. They are able to hav 1 serving. I am not. Plus when we all get together, we like to have a glass of wine...or 3. Work in progress.
I'm also going to try to work out 5 days this week. I meant to do it today and ran out of time. I'm going to repeat Week 2 of Ripped in 30 this week. But I think I should be ready to move on next week (except for the pushups!!). I did do a few pushups tonight just because I could. I'm kind of surprised by the increased strength in my arms/shoulders since it's only been 2 weeks that I've been working out. But I'll take it!!
Even though I had a tiny setback with weight this week, I'm still on track to get down to "overweight" by mid-September. I just need to keep that in mind!
