Oh yeah, I have a blog

Sorry for the lack of updates! I've been really busy lately, but no worries, I haven't fallen off the wagon. I'm still going strong with my WLJ and still working every day to reach my goals!

Saturday morning was weigh-in, and much to my surprise I was down 2.6lbs!!! This is the first time in almost a month that I’ve lost more than a pound in a week as I’ve been teeter tottering around 187lbs. So I’m definitely happy that I’ve finally broken the plateau I was at! It’s great to finally see a little more significant loss that reflects on the scale what I’ve been seeing change in my body. Here’s where I’m at currently:

Starting Weight: 199lbs
Current Weight: 185.2lbs
Weekly Loss: -2.6lbs
Total Weight-Loss: -13.8lbs

I have 5.2lbs left until I reach my 10% goal. Ideally I’d love to reach that by the 28th because a couple my family is close with is renewing their vows and I have put myself at a spending freeze (as far as clothes are concerned) until I reach that goal. So, I’d love to buy something new to wear to that. But, I’m not going to obsess over it. I’ll get there when my body is ready. All I can do is keep up with healthy eating and my workouts. As long as I’m still following through and pushing myself the numbers on the scale will come down when they’re ready!

This week has gotten off to a somewhat slow start. It's Wednesday and I have yet to workout! The weather has just been chilly and dreery, not very motivating. But, I'm going to get ready for a workout shortly and I might even take my pup for a walk to try and catch back up. I'm making a roast for dinner with lots of veggies in it so that should be nutritious and delicious!

Looking to the rest of the week I'm hoping to keep on track. Even though I've faltered a bit so far I think I can get back into my routine with no problems. Weigh-in is on Saturday as usual, so I have about 4 days to make good choices!


  1. Congrats, and I love following your journey. Weather here has been rubbish too so I've been appalling at going for a run. I did do a 1/2 hour walk/forced march yesterday and gosh I'm feeling it today. Good luck for upping your exercise!!

  2. With an exercise ball you can experience greater range of motion when doing the traditional abdominal exercise such as crunches and curl ups. These exercise balls can also engage the muscles of your core while performing other exercises. That zeal quickly fades as the days and lack of desire drag on.
