Week 9 recap: 286.6 (-1 lb)

Monday, March 04, 2013

There's a part of me that is disappointed with a 1 lb drop. I was secretly hoping to get under 285 this week. After all, I finally got back in the swing of things with exercise this week after almost two weeks off. Then I look back at my week and I see a major binge on Saturday (2000 extra calories!) and another night above the top of my calorie range. So that should have knocked a pound off any anticipated weight loss. But my weight has been fluctuating all over the scale this week anyway. I got numbers ranging from 287 to 284 depending on the day of the week. Yesterday was 285.2 So who really knows anyway. As long as the pattern is downward I guess I'm okay.

Goals for the week were:
1. Menu plan (behind a bit because no shopping today)
2. Get out with kids at least 2 times
3. Exercise at least 10 minutes every day, at least 25 minutes four days

I did menu plan but substituted spaghetti and meatballs for spinach quiche -- not a great trade off health wise! My son had been asking for meatballs and my husband was wanting beef as well.

Get out with the kids -- well, I was outside with them for an hour and a half on Sunday. We had plans to go out one evening during the week but it poured. Saturday I kept the kids playing in the backyard much of the afternoon but I didn't actually go out much myself. So not really.

On 3, also no. I got at least 10 minutes every day but Saturday. I also got 5 days of 25 minutes or more. So not bad even if not perfect.
