Well, that was a nice surprise this morning! I was expecting to be down about 3 lbs. Hopefully it does not come back to bite me next week... Which, frankly, it might. I was starving when I got to work today. But still, I'll be happy with a much smaller loss next week -- it's the trend that matters.
I also like this number because that's the weight I was at when I got pregnant with my oldest son. Well, the weight I was at at my first doctor's visit after I confirmed the pregnancy with a home test and then starting bleeding madly. So while the number on the scale frightened me (I had been avoiding scales for over a year and packed on a good 20 or so lbs), the negative feeling was quickly overshadowed by the little fuzzy pulsing -- alive and growing -- bean on the ultrasound screen.
So, how'd we do this week?
1. Plan out healthy menu
2. Pack healthy lunches for me and kids
3. Eat salad or soup before dinner at least 4 days
4. Do Gorilla exercise every day
5. Do at least 30 minutes of cardio at least 4 days a week, including walk.
6. Get outside with the kids for at least 30 minutes at least twice.
Check on 1, 2, 3, and 4. Though we ended up with unexpected guests twice during the week which mean we didn't have the leftovers I had planned for Thursday. Funnily enough, I don't remember what I replaced them with. Got only two 30 minute cardio sessions but did the rest in shorter bursts on more days, so still the right amount. On 6 -- well, I got the little two out for an hour and a half on Saturday -- the bigger two refused to leave their Lego. And about 30 minutes with the little two last Sunday. So I got out for 30 minutes twice this week with SOME kids -- does that count? The others went out in the backyard digging and planting and such later in the day, so they also got exercise -- just not together. Whatever. I call it a win.
