Weigh-in Wednesday - Week two!

Weigh in Wednesday!

 JAN 24-30, 2013

 Starting Weight (Jan 1, 2013): 155
Last Week's Weight: 153

 Current weight: 152.2

Welp, looks like I finally lost some weight!  I've been working hard this week.  I worked out three different times, which was my goal, and charted my food throughout the week.  The weekends, I am learning, are where it's tough.  I can't seem to stick to a set number of calories.  I didn't gorge or anything like that, but I could have done better.
The balance of weight and yummy food is so hard for me.  For so much of my life, food has been such a huge part of my social existence.  Fairs, football games, BBQs, date nights...  I just love food, but obviously I can't eat like I used to, and I am finding it hard to balance good food I want to eat and still maintain a healthier diet.  My momma's southern cooking was delicious, but definitely not healthy.
That's the struggle though, I think.  The balance.  Plus balancing work, school, homework, our pets, Joel, all while trying to maintain a healthy and spiritually strong existence.  Guess this will be my big challenge.

Nice work! That's great. I feel ya on the southern cookin'. I was doing well with my fitness until my Mimi got back into town and started cooking for me a lot. Now, I'm in trouble! ;)

I love that image. I find it difficult to find balance as well. This week I've been breaking up my workouts so that I do them all throughout the day. I don't have a gym membership, so I rely on my own body weight and creativity. Walking lunges while I'm walking my dog, calf raises while I'm brushing my teeth. A 5 minute ab series while I'm watching TV.

In terms of food - I don't follow a diet. If I want BBQ or chocolate or ice cream, I eat it...but I don't gorge myself...I really savor the food and eat consciously. I'm a firm believer that you really can eat whatever you want as long as you use portion control :)
