Well, official week 2 was hard ... similar to how hard it is on The Biggest Loser, I think. They always have very small losses on their second and I feel the same way (I know this is the first official weigh-in of the challenge but it's 4 or 5 on mamavation for me). I've really watched by intake and output this week and only lost ONE POUND. Now, I am grateful for that because I weighed in a few days ago, I was flatlined - a big fat nothing, which was really depressing. I'm on Day 18 of NO SODA and I really do that is helping to not snack as much.
I sidestepped a major temptation at work (leftover meeting snacks, this time one of my favs - triple chocolate chewies). THANK YOU, LEAH, for kicking some sense into me!
I'm trying to find a Zumba class locally just for fun. I did buy two pedometers, and my 11yo DD and I are in daily competitions for highest number of steps. Now, our numbers are pathetically low right now (with full time work and art camp) but they can only get better. I need to decide on some super fun rewards for all our effort!
GOALS THIS WEEK: Drink my full 64+ oz water each day; at least 10k steps or the equivalent six out of seven days; MORE veggies and fruits (Veggie Contessa says so!)
