First week done!

So how has everyone done for the first week of the weight loss challenge? I did PRETTY good throughout the week, but the weekend wasn't so good. We were busy, busy, busy and ended up eating out a lot, so I didnt get much healthy food unfortunately. I know it's my own fault for not making better choices even when eating out!

As far as working out goes, I was down to just doing it 4 days a week because my oldest son was going to speech therapy one day a week and on that day I just didnt have time to squeeze in workouts around his therapy and my job... I always take the weekends off because I refuse to work out when my husband is home. I dont know why, I just feel self-conscious about it. I like doing it when I'm alone with the kids. However, my sons speech therapist thinks he is good to go and doesnt really need to come back so now i will have that extra day of workout in every week too, now! woohoo!

I did a little bit of shopping yesterday since most stores are having clearance sales right now. I got 2 really cute shirts. I normally dont try on shirts before i buy them, but I did this time because they didn't look big enough, but they fit and they actually look slimming on me! I got one really nice tank top that I like a lot. It's kinda snug but doesnt look too bad as it is, but I'm going to use it as motivation because I want to wear it to the music fest we are going to August 18 and I want to look even better in it by then!

my goals are still the same this week....portion control and eating healthy foods. I normally do good with my work outs and I drink lots and lots of water every day.

I'd love to hear everyone's updates for the week...and if anyone reading this wants to join in our challenge, go ahead! There's no deadline and we can always use the extra encouragement and motivation!


  1. Just a quickie for me as I haven't even updated my own blog in a while. I have a lot of family crisis going on right now. I did eat within my points, but I only got 2 of the 4 days exercise in. My goal for this week is to just eat with in my points. I will try to get some exercise in, but right now that is not going to be my focus. I just don't want to emotional eat. Glad ds is doing great with his speech. Keep up the good work. We will do this. My official weigh in is tomorrow.

  2. well i hope things get better for you soon! just try your hardest to watch what you eat, that is what is the most important!
