Thanks for all the comments on my gym search post! There really wasn’t a question about which gym I’m joining. I knew I was going to join Gym #2 the minute I walked out of there, but a girl has to have something to blog about, ya know? ;) Thanks for supporting the decision I made. Posts where everyone agrees with me are fun! I should try for those more often. ;)
This week’s weigh in is a bit sad – I am all sickly!
Current Weight: 206.1 lbs
Previous Weight: 206.6 lbs
Weight Loss: – .5 lbs
Weight Loss Total: – 44.9 lbs
Starting Weight: 251
You’ve got to be kidding me. 206.1? Seriously? I’m .1 pounds away from that 45 lbs lost mark so I can’t really claim it this week. Just another half a pound gone. So basically maintained, with my body refusing to get to the next five pound mark technically. But that’s actually for the best because I said I’d do videos every five pounds and I’m currently sick so that would be a horrible video. Consider yourselves saved by the weight loss gods.
Goals From Last Week:
Goal #1: Drink more water! – Did well on this on weekdays but didn’t do so well on the weekend when we were out and about doing stuff. Apparently I need to take my water bottle with me even when I leave the house and I haven’t been doing that. Water + weight loss go together!
Goal #2: Visit a gym. – Done. Visited two gyms. Have a pass to try out both and will do when I’m feeling up to it. So maybe a day or two and I’ll go visit.
Goal #3: Hit the 45 lbs lost mark. – Didn’t hit this technically, but if you wanna round up…. haha. This is why I NEVER set weight loss goals with a timeline.
Goals For This Week:
Goal #1: Get better! Being sick is no fun at all -I didn’t get to go on a field trip to the zoo today because I caught this cold.
Goal #2: Workout at the gyms I visited and join gym #2. – Not sure yet how I will squeeze the money for it without screwing myself over next month, but I’m making this happen by Monday. Monday will be the day of the gym!
Goal #3: Make at least two new meals this week. – I would like to make a couple new things so I get more comfortable in kitchen here. Plus trying new recipes is just fun!
So what did I learn from this week? Don’t set weight loss goals for a certain timeframe. It never works out for me. Also? Don’t get sick because it’s no fun and messes up your entire week! I can’t wait til I feel better.
What do you do when you have a cold? How do you get better quickly? Any tips?
