Tuesday Weigh In

So, I promised Amy that I would start weighing in once a week and blogging with her on Tuesdays. She doesn't blog until the night time, but I will end up doing mine some time during the day.

So, I weighed myself a few times last week to get a baseline weight.

Starting weight: 225.

Ouch. At one point late last year I was closer to 205, so I have gained some back and I can especially tell in my pants. Wearing a 16 is no longer as comfortable as it once was, I should probably be going back to a 16W or even an 18. But, I am determined to drop the weight and keep it off once more!

So, how did today go? Bright and early at 6 AM I crawled my tired ass out of bed and weighed in. After peeing of course! (TMI? lol)

This week's weight: 222.8

Loss of 1.2lbs.

Woohoo! A loss! That's about all I have energy-wise to muster for this week. It has been a long week already and it's only Tuesday, and I'm rushing to finish this so I can try and catch up on some homework I need to get done!

Goals for this week:

* Do my pilates DVD 3 days
* Drink 60oz water per day
* No "extra" sweets of any kind: candies, ice cream, cereal!, sugar in my coffee (splenda in my tea ok though)
* Go to at least 1 spin class
* Catch up on my Bio Science homework

I think I have some realistic goals. I have fitness goals, but also homework goals, which are just as important.

I'd also like to start video-ing me doing some of the zumba routines from my Sunday/Tuesday classes. The reason being: Johnny hasn't had enough people coming to the Tuesday night so he has officially cancelled that class. And I cried. It sucks. A handful of us are loyal, but financially it doesn't make sense for him to continue on. At least I still have Sundays though! But I'd like to record me doing them so I don't forget, AND I can do a class by myself at any time, and will have video to refer back to if I forget a move!


  1. So glad to see your post today! :-) Thanks for joining me.

    YAHOO! Way to go with your loss. I'm also super proud of you for not moving up a size in pants to be comfortable, but rather decided to just move a bit more to help.

    Homework goals are also important. It's all relative...when one aspect of our lives gets out of hand, the rest follow...the opposite is true too.

    Once again, great job. Can't wait to see what you accomplish for next week's weigh in!

  2. So glad that Amy got you one board with Tuesday night weigh ins! I may just have to join up with you ladies in April when I have weigh ins on Tuesday! I like that you are being realistic about where you were, where you are now and where you want to be. Having a clear vision will help you to get to the place you want to be in life with your eating, your exercise and your weight. Great goals for the week! I will be looking forward to seeing how it all goes for the week!
