This weekend was a little rough for the diet. I didn't go completely overboard, but I had a couple of days when I went a little over my target.
Only three days. My fourth day was hijacked by taking a sick child to the doctor. Turns out she had pneumonia, so it was a worthwhile trip.
Healthy Change #5 is one I've been working on since the beginning--exercise most days of the week and sweat. For me, this is the hardest aspect of my fitness plan to achieve. Because I exercise first thing in the morning I so often have other demands that seem to take precedence-- sick kids, doctors appointments, volunteering at the school. When those things happen I fully intend to exercise in the evening instead, but to be completely honest, I'm usually exhausted (physically, mentally and emotionally) by that time and just want to relax.
I didn't have the most stellar week for my plan, but I think my body is understanding what I'm trying to do here because I still came out alright in the end. Also, from my high weight point last June, I've lost more than 15 pounds and more than 5% of my body weight. That feels good.
Oh, this week I also had someone ask me if I'd been losing weight. That's a first.
Weight change from last week: -2.8 lbs
Total Weight loss: 7.6 lbs
Neck measurement: -.5 inches
Waist measurement: -1.0 inches
