Taking the Plunge: Week 3

23 Jan

Okay so this is a couple days late, but really this week was really tough and all I did was work and sleep.  I really missed blogging and I am glad I will have some extra time again and really glad to be getting back into the swing of a routine again.  So with life being so busy how did I do last week?

Results in a minute.  Here is the good, bad and ugly of last week.


I really stuck to trying not to eat carbs even though a good amount of my meals were given through work.  I stayed away from all starches and made sure I was eating salads and meat. I was pretty stressed out all last week and I felt that I didn’t binge on eating to make myself feel better.  There were a couple tears and venting sessions but I made it through. 

I also had date night and had to go out to eat a couple times last week and when I went to eat I ate salads!! Really this is a first for me.  I love my pasta, mashed potatoes and sauces like no ones business, but I stuck with salad!! Some were more healthy than others (like the southwestern salad, and some in the middle like a taco salad without eating the taco, and then there was the bad salad but at least it was a salad-right?? like the buffalo chicken salad. ) Overall though I am really proud of this and I didn’t feel like I was missing out.


Well I would have loved to gone to the gym more and there were a day or two where I had the time and I chose to sit on the couch.  I did get to the gym last week but it was only 2 times and my goal is 3 or more days a week (including weekends) so I didn’t meet my goal last week in the workout department.  But even with a stressful and busy work week I got to the gym twice which is great that I got out there and kept myself moving

Well I was beat, had a bad day and got home and looked at my husband and said I need a date night.  So off we went to Chilis and I had that southwestern salad and started to destress and then we went to go see Avatar and at the movie I had skittles.  Now the goal was not to eat the entire bag of skittles and I made sure I had a water with the skittles.  I knew it was wrong and that I shouldn’t be eating skittles but let me tell you I savored every skittle I had that night. Plus I made my goal and didn’t eat every skittle in the bag. YES!


I weighed myself every day like a maniac.  I turned into one of those people.  A good amount of meals were through my work and I just wished I could have known how everything was cooked and be a bit more healthy.  So since I couldn’t really control cooking the food last week I controlled the scale and checked it every morning.  And sometimes re-checked it.  Oh it was bad and I swore starting this week that I wouldn’t be that person anymore and to not live by what the scale says. {stay tuned if I met this goal}

 So the results of last week….

Beginning Weight: 191.8lbs

{End of} Week 1 Weight: 185.2lbs {6.6lb weight loss!}

{End of} Week 2 Weight: 184{1.2 weight loss!}-did not meet 5 lb weight loss

And the proof…
