Getting Healthy Week 2: I saw and I ate

How to begin, how to begin, how to begin…  First off I didn’t do a biweekly posting like I said I would.  That’s never a good sign, right?  Okay.  Deep breath.  Last week was an epic fail.  I stayed exactly the same weight.  I didn’t gain and I didn’t lose.  Exactly the same!!!

The week started off fabulously.  In fact all the weekdays were fabulous.  I worked out on the elliptical 2 days at 50 minutes each.  So I didn’t hit my 3 days of working out goal, but those 2 sessions were 50 minutes each!  😉   I ate healthy Monday thru Friday.  Seriously health.  Like I didn’t use all of my points at all.  Even on Friday night I was feeling really good about myself.  Yep I was totally under my points for all the weekdays.  So how did I not lose you are thinking???  Here’s how…





All of the above are perfectly fine in moderation, but do you think I moderated?  NO.  See what I mean?  Epic fail.  I hosted a baby shower in my home on Saturday and then of course Sunday was the big football game.  I was weak.  I caved.  I ate.

This week?  Not going to happen.  I’ve gotta do better.

How did you do?

Getting Healthy!

It’s time to start to…



Are you ready for this???  It’s Monday and I think that’s the best day to start.  Why wait until the middle of the week?  So… Let’s get this started, shall we?  Throughout the coming weeks we can all share tips, recipes, etc.  Be sure to check in often since I’m planning to post biweekly.  In blog postings I’m going to share with you my goals for the upcoming week(s).  Feel free to share your own plans in comments as I think it will be beneficial for us to all work together!  Some of us might be looking to exercise more.  Some of us might be looking to lose some weight.  (I’m wanting to drop 20 lbs.)  Some of us might be looking to maintain our weight through diet and exercise.  Whatever we are looking for I think we can all stay motivated with a support system!  A dandy support system!  😉

Here are my goals for this week:

  • I’m going to start tracking again.  Tracking EVERYTHING.  I’m a lifetime member of Weight Watchers and have their app on my phone, so it makes it very easy to track.
  • I’m going to eat healthier.  The fridge is stocked with some fresh fruit (blackberries, blueberries, apples, strawberries, oranges) and I’ll be reaching for the fruit in place of candy treats.
  • I’m going to workout on the elliptical at least 3 times this week.

I’ll touch base with you all in a mid week posting.  Just to let you know how it’s going.  And you can do the same in the comments on that posting.  🙂   Then next Monday I’ll be posting my weigh in.  Fingers crossed this week goes well!

 What are your goals for this week???

Leave a comment to let us all know!  🙂  Oh and good luck to all!
