And The Number Is... Week 7 Weigh In

Another week has passed and I am still not doing things the way I had planned. When I first started my weight loss journey 7 weeks ago I had planned on losing 20 pounds in the first 2 months and I'm not even close to that at week 7. Maybe I was a little unrealistic but it would have been nice :).

This week has been a little crazy for me. We left for New York at 6:00am Sat. morning and got back at 6pm Monday evening. It was a lot of traveling with two sick kids but we all had a great time. It was a little stressful because my oldest daughter was getting over croup and still has a nasty head cold and my baby got a double ear infection and head cold while we were there. So I really did not get much sleep if any while we were away. This caused me to feel the need to eat constantly to stay awake. That and I was just at the point where I was so stressed that I didn't care if I gained weight. So I ate some donuts, birthday cake, brownies, a Mrs. Freshley's cherry pie (my first one and it was to die for) and many other things that I can't remember. It was not a good weekend for losing weight.
When I got back home I started eating healthy again and I have been working really hard this week on exercising. I did my Jillian Micheal's video 5 days this week and I can really feel a difference. I feel so good when I am done with that workout.

And for the part you have all been waiting for. This morning the scale said 206.1. Somehow I lost almost the whole pound I gained last week. I credit it to the Jillian Micheal's 30 Day Shred and drinking lots of water. I really believe the workout is working for me. It does upset me a little to think about how well I could have done if I wouldn't have messed up this weekend. But with 2 sick kids I'm lucky I survived the week.

Goals for the week:

1. Lose some weight!
2. Eat more veggies. (I really need to buy some salad mix)
3. Track my points every day.
4. Stay within my points.
5. Exercise - Do the 30 Day Shred 5 days this week (I love this workout!)
6. Go outside for a walk at least two times this week (if the kids are better).
6. Drink lots of water.
7. Don't eat the whole low-fat pumpkin chocolate cake on my kitchen table (I've learned that it really isn't low-fat if you eat all of it ;).)
