Weigh in Wednesday

Well, I'm up 1.80 pounds, but I know why.  It's called The Weekend.  Arghhh.   Why can't the saying below be true?!?!

Here’s a recap of my goals from last week and how I did.

100 ounces of water a day – I did good throughout the week and bombed on the weekend.  

Try protein pancakes – Success.  I think I got the recipe from Skinny Meg.  On the oatmeal, I used 2 packages of the lower sugar maple & brown sugar Quaker oats.  I topped the waffles with yogurt.  I thought they were yummy.  My batch made 6.  They also reheat good.  I'll definitely be making more.  


Workout at least 5 times – Failed.  I missed my usual Friday workout because I had a hair appointment.  I had intentions of making it up on the the weekend, but it didn't happen.  I'm participating in a new challenge to workout 30 minutes everyday for 30 days.  The 30 minutes isn't the issue for me.  It's the 30 days.  Eeeekkkk.

Log all food in My Fitness Pal – Fail.  Once again, I did not log on the weekend.  Curse the weekend!!!

Try a new workout - Fail.  I would really like to try a yoga or piyo video on YouTube.  I just hate having to sift through all the videos to find a decent one.  Any suggestions?

Non scale victories
I worked out at home.  This is big!!  I always work out at the gym at lunch time.  Now that I am participating in the 30 day challenge, I will have to do some exercising at home.   It takes some serious motivation for me to work out at home.  My home workout consisted of working on Skinny Meg's challenge of 500 squats, 500 lunges, and 500 jumping jacks.  I also did all 3 ab videos she posted.

I ran into a lady from our old church.  She said she didn't recognize me because I have lost so much weight.  It's nice when others recognize your success.  I don't think people that see you everyday see the change as easily.

  1. Congrats on your weight loss and be careful on the 500 challenges. Make sure you stretch about 10 minutes a day on those, you don't want to have a set back. #wowlinkup

  2. Yum for protein pancakes and yay for non scale victories! I love working out at home :)

  3. I love trying different protein pancake recipes. I'll definitely need to try this one. And great NSV's this week!
