The Weigh It Is

Yay, it is Friday!! Woohoo!!

I didn't do anything festive for Cinco de Mayo. I was tempted to have a Pacifico but one leads to 6 for me so better to avoid it all together. Dave had night games so I was on my own for dinner which has been happening more and more lately. I generally get lazy when he is not around to cook for Shelley but I wanted something healthy since I knew it was going to be weigh day today. So, I had a chicken and veggie skillet dinner. It was pretty darn tasty! 
Got on the scale this morning and I am down 1 lb. so I am at 255. I wasn't expecting more then that given that I haven't been very active this week but food has been good so I think that is what helped. Actually, the way the Fitbit is set up, they want you to achieve a 500 cal deficit per day which is 500 x 7 = 3,500 cals or 1 lb. The bigger the deficit the bigger the loss. Once I get my finally get my arse in gear and get some activities going that deficit will be bigger but I will be shooting for a 1.5-2.0 loss per week. I truly am my biggest roadblock.

I will be doing something with my mom both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday night we will go to the Outback and then Sunday we will go see Water for Elephants. I have not read the book but the movie looks good so I am hoping she enjoys it. Other then that, nothing planned. I am trying to put together a workout plan and have my gym schedules out to see if I can go to a Zumba class or something. Has anyone tired Les Mills Bodypump or UJam Fitness? They both look like kick booty classes. What is the worst thing that could happen if I did go? As long as I make it through the class without hurting myself there isn't anything horrible. So what if people look at me. I am there for ME not them! Have some confidence in the fact that you are going! Hope you all have a lovely weekend whatever you do. Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's and mom's to be! Until next time...


  1. I read and watched Water For Elephants, I LOVE IT! I hope you like it, too!

    Great job on the 1 pounds loss!! I had a bad week, but I started over today and have already gotten in 1 hr of exercise. I'm hoping my fitbit gets here soon, so excited!

    Have a great weekend :)

  2. I go to Les Mills BodyPump 2x a week. It's a great class that works all your muscle groups. I recommend it. I also do Les Mills Body FLow (yoga/Taichi) and it has been great for my balance and flexibility. Good luck with whatever you choose!

  3. Yay, you! Another pound you won't ever have to carry, again. :D

  4. Congrats on the loss! Hope you have a great time with your Mom this weekend. :)

  5. Congrats on the loss - you are headed in the right direction and that is GREAT!!!

    Don't be like lazy Shelley - cook yourself something nice for dinner. (Hah - guess what I'm having for dinner? Yogurt. Do as I say, not as I do, lol!)

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend - I know your mom appreciates all the time you are spending with her. :)


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
