My Weight Loss Progress

Thursday, June 3, 2010


So, the family is here visiting from Idaho and we have been enjoying their company. As expected there is definitely a lot more temptation too. I am making meals for dinner (last night was Baked Penne and tonight was healthy fish tacos) and today we went out to lunch. It is so hard to eat out and stay with in points range. I also received a fun package from my brother and sister in law. Included in the package was chocolate covered cinnamon bears. You can't find them here and I hadn't had any since Hudson was born when they sent him a package. They are so good. The bad news is that I indulged in a few, the good news is..that there were 5 additional family members here to help me eat them and they are now gone. They will not be hanging over my head anymore. Thanks Kim..they were delicious! The entire package they sent for the baby and us was so cute. Thank you..thank you. I had been craving those bears for over 2 years. I had also made a loaf of zucchini bread as a special treat for the family and have had to partake in that as well.
On the bright side, we all woke up this morning and went for a good walk in the neighborhood and conquered several hills. Then tonight at 10:30PM, I decided to jump on the treadmill for a quick walk-run interval of 35 minutes. I am being very conscious of what I am eating and easily could have eaten twice as many goodies as I have. So, while I am hating that I am not being perfect, I am not letting it get me down. Tonight, after I got off the treadmill, I led my sister in law Shelley and my niece Ashley in 50 leg lifts on each leg and 25 gluteal lifts. We will all be feeling it tomorrow. Also, for the record, I can still do the splits. I had to prove it tonight. haha. I'm just hoping for a loss this least 2 pounds. Tomorrow we are planning to go for another walk and we will be home all day so I will be able to stay on point and within the point range.


  1. Perfect doesn't exist! You just need to stay on plan- sounds like you are having a very balanced holiday with your family. Keep up the good work. I think you need to get in at least 45 min. on the treadmill tonight- everyone will understand. First day back at work is coming up! Go 199lbs!

  2. I don't even think I can still do the splits!! Wow!
