Weekly Weigh In: Week 6

Week 6
                              Weight: 193      Loss: 1.6 lbs

I was surprised to see the scale down to 193. All week long it was my TOM and never saw the scales in the 193's. I was at a training for 3 days this week where lunch and breakfast were catered, and there was A LOT of time just sitting. Some of my goods and bads for the week are:


~ My first & third day I didn't have a single danish, donut, or bagel during breakfast. I actually stopped and got myself a mini can of tuna salad with crackers and had that for breakfast instead.

~ They had cookies with lunch every day and I didn't have a single one. I actually took a bit of one to satisfy my craving and then threw it away. (I was on my period you realize how hard that is?!)

~ They  provided great healthy lunches each day (wraps, chicken stirfry, and chef salads) which was super helpful.

~ On chef salad day I took lettuce, tomatoes, fresh turkey, ham, and grilled chicken, and used 1/4 of the lite ranch dressing packet

~ I didn't have a single soda. I would have loved a diet coke to get me through the last 3 boring hours of each day!!

~ I drank a ton of water. What else is there to do when you are sitting for hours? I also went to the bathroom a at least once an hour. I don't think I have a bladder.

~ Jake worked every night this week, so I would get home and he would immediately leave, which going to the gym for me, but yesterday I got out that double stroller and pounded some pavement. It was the perfect night for a walk! Today I am heading going for a good walk and tomorrow is ZUMBA!

~ I made a friend! lol. And I am making her come to Zumba with me tomorrow!!


~ I forgot breakfast my second day and had 1/2 bagel with cream cheese. I enjoyed every second of it

~After lunch the 2nd day I  had a dinner roll with some butter. I also enjoyed every second of it.

~ I didn't work out at all Tues and Wed, and was sitting 8hr during each day of training. Made me feel super guilty.

~ I had a few too many dum dum lollipops that they were passing out.

~ I brought some chex mix with me one day and grazed the whole darn day long.

Anyway. You win some battles and lose some others. I am excited to make a healthy version of eggplant parm this week!! If enough people are interested I will write up the recipe.

Have a great weekend girlies!


  1. You are so cute!!! You did pretty darn good. I would have a donut a day. I have a slight addiction to all things doughy. LOL

    Have fun at Zumba!

  2. Yum, share this eggplant parm recipe. ;) I've made it before, but never healthy! LOL

    And I agree with Dawnya, you're super cute with your lil' skinny jeans.

  3. I'm so thrilled with your good choices and actually did a little shoulder shrug on the not as healthful choices. Life is living dear, not stressing the small stuff. I think you made enough healthful choices to compensate and your scale apparently agreed! Congrats!

  4. I think you did great! The weight is really starting to come off! Congrats!

  5. Congrats on your awesome loss! I love your blog and I've been lurking for a while so this comment is really just to congratulate you, and also tell you I'm not a stalker :-p
