Weigh In

It can be hard to stay focused on the end results and my goals when the weights moving off so slow. I’ve been working out hard, 45 minutes a day. I ate better than last week, but still enjoyed a few naughty meals over the weekend. My husband and I had a busy two days with the kids and both got lazy, ordering take out ect.

What have I been eating? A lot of eggs, meat and vegetables. As I said in a previous post I’m not one to meal prep and I am really uninterested in “pretend carbs” … cauliflower this and that. I’m sure it’s lovely but it’ll make me miserable, trying to make the most of it. So eggs it is. I’m also a HUGE fan of bun-less burgers, those have been going over well with my husband too.

I know I haven’t lost really any weight but my body feels really good, i’m not bloated and my muscles feel tight, it’s a great feeling. Over the weekend I moved up to 8lb dumbbells and it’s made a huge impact on the workouts I’ve been doing, and I hope that will help bump me up to two pounds a week, instead of one.

I have to stop the snacking!

Here’s an example of a workout using 8lb dumbbells!

  • Left arm dumbbell swing x 10 (repeat 2 times) into left arm dumbbell swing into left arm tricep dip x 10 (only once) repeat for other side.
  • Side lunge into left shoulder press x 10 ( 3 times) repeat for other side
  • 10 left leg ski lunges with bicep curl x 10 (3 times)
  • 10 right leg ski lunges with hammer curl x10 (3 times)
  • 10 second plank into 10 second mountain climber into 10 pushups x3 ( only once)
  • Stretch

At the end of a workout i’m sweaty and tired so I feel successful. Once a week I workout to a video of choice from you tube and along with researching I’m enjoying deciding what goes into my circuits. Hopefully next week I see even better results!

Bicep 12′ Waist 36′ Hips 39′ Bust 42′ Chest 35′ Thigh 22′

In two weeks I’ve lost 2.5 pounds and 11 inches!

  1. They say you should snack, mid morning snack and mid afternoon snack to get your metabolism moving, it’s what you are snacking on that matters. I remember a time when I used to do the South Beach thing. Lots of cucumber slices, almonds, celery sticks, cottage cheese etc. I dropped the weight quickly. I need to go back to that. In any case, good for you for sticking to it. Thumbs up 🙂


    1. Thanks so much! I’m a terrible snacker, if you put a bag of chips in front of me i’ll eat the whole thing. I have been doing better though, and making better choices and hope the choices transition into better habits. 🙂

      1. I’m the same way, I looooooove food specifically warm french bread dipped in dipping oil along side a glass of red wine. But at 42 years old I need to do better. So I try my hardest to watch what I put in my body, My problem is I do not like to exercise. I will walk for miles, and speed walking but I wont run or join a gym :/
