Mind + Body Transformation: Week 2

Weekly Update

I hate the scale. I hate the number of the scale. Even worse, I hate how my weight fluctuates day to day. I did this when I was pregnant and I did it when I was nursing and pumping exclusively for 14 months. Those two major “body-altering” events are understandable, but I’m still confused by the roller coaster that is my weight. Rant over.

Weight on July 10, 2015 // 264

Last week’s wins:

  • I went to the gym three days last week for a total of 180 minutes: Monday (Zumba), Tuesday (indoor cycling), and Friday (interval circuit on elliptical).

Last week’s struggles:

  • The holiday weekend offered wonderful time with family and friends, but I lost all self-control and ate way too much.
  • I made Husband a peanut butter pie … and ate two pieces in one day.
  • I didn’t go to the gym Wednesday or Thursday because I was lazy.
  • I’m dragging and exhausted. I didn’t sleep well and one night I didn’t go to bed at all.

Pounds Lost:

  • I don’t even know. My weight has fluctuated drastically this week … Monday – 260; Tuesday – 258; and Friday – 264.

Goals for the week ahead:

  • Exercise five consecutive days, either at the gym or walking at the city park, and clock a minimum of 300 minutes (an hour a day).
  • Increase water consumption
  • Check Amazon’s special “Prime Sale” later this week for a FitBit, Garmin, or Polar monitor watch. The fitness tracker I have through our insurance needs a new battery (it lasted less than six weeks) and only calculates the number of steps I walk. I’d really like something more in depth that will calculate minutes I exercise and when my heart rate is in calorie-burning mode. I’d also like to be able to sync it with friends as an additional link of support and accountability.
  • Make myself go to bed by 11:30 every night.

    Why on earth did you not go to bed AT ALL? Sleep is one of the key components to good health! Talk to me about tequila. Seriously.

    you seem to be focusing way too much!… never works… baby steps Dear… if it’s water intake… concentrate only on that a week… then add something new the next week… along with the water… like one sweet a day… then 3rd week …add one more thing… keeping the other two going… by now the first two will probably have become a habit…Quit stressing yourself out…will only bring on defeat!

      Oh my goodness, it is a small world. Are you involved with Texas Women Bloggers or Fort Worth Bloggers? I’ve hosted (coordinated) a couple of social gatherings in the past that have been SUPER DUPER fun and I miss seeing everybody. It’s definitely past time for a get-together and YOU should definitely come. Regardless, we should meet sometime.

      For the record: it’s 9:51pm and I feel like my day is just getting started. Ha! But our current “been working perfectly for 18 months” schedule is changing soon because Kamden started pre-school (two days a week) next month. He has to be at school before 9am and that’s usually when he gets up in the mornings. Aghhhh, this is going to be a big adjustment for us both. We all love our sleep around here too!!!!

      Blessings to new friend! xo Nicole
