Sledding is Exercise

As expected the second week weigh in results were a downer compared to last weeks 9.5 lbs lost...However I still recorded a loss of of 3 lbs and a two week total of 12.5 lbs. I also do have that pesky little friend wrecking a little havoc on me this week. I have learned the following things this week:

Sledding is exercise. Seriously walking up a big hill a whole bunch of times is a good cardio workout. (add it with the thrill of going down and its a whole lot of fun!)

Tiredness effects my munchies. The days where I was well rested I did not feel like munching, those where I went to bed late I felt like eating all day long.

Working out at home is okay. I probably work out longer in a class, but I was so tired on Friday I popped in a video. I still sweated and had a good work out!

Planning a monthly meal plan has great benefits. No more thinking about what to eat and then ordering out. We have agreed to have 2 nights of order in/eat out as a family per month. This really helps.

Not stressing about food at a party makes it much easier to stay on plan the next day. I went to a party - had a couple glasses of wine, a brownie, a cookie, some bread...not too much, but I didn't feel like I had "blown it". Because really all of those things in a little bit are not terrible.

I'm pressing on into week 3. :)

LBS Lost: 12.5
Workouts: 11/15 days

  2. great job on your loss Jodie. Keep up the good work!

  3. That's a terrific loss! You should feel so pleased with yourself. You bet sledding is exercise.
