Goal Update

Last week wasn't the greatest. WI was +2.2. But it is that wonderful time of month, and my birthday was Sunday, and there was cake to be had. I'm not horribly surprised, but of course, I wish it would have been a loss or at least a smaller gain.

Here's the weekly update to the June Goals.

1. WO 4-5 times a week.  Not quite check. I got in 3
2. Lose 5-10 lbs. I don't see this one getting met this month. I'm at  +0.6...
3. Track Everything. Check! This has been the biggest success of the month. I've tracked everything completely since June 4th.


Holy Zumba

So, I went to my first ever Zumba class last night, and I'm pretty sure I've never sweated so much in my entire life.  But I absolutely loved it. I had a blast, and I'll definitely be adding that to my calendar for Tuesdays and Thursdays. I feel great this morning, a little sore, but great. Hopefully I have finally found a workout that I'll stick with. The hour flew by, and I honestly didn't even think about looking at the clock. I'm really excited about this!


Heavy Heart

Anyone that has been following for any length of time knows that my dogs are a big part of my life.  A couple months ago I posted that our old girl, Marin, had thyroid cancer. Sadly, yesterday she lost her battle. Over the weekend she was starting to show signs of not acting like herself. She wasn't as eager to leave her crate, and she seemed to just not feel well.  Two months ago, we made her the promise that she wouldn't suffer, and yesterday we had to make good on that promise, as hard as it was. 

I still remember being so excited when mom got home from picking her up from her breeder. Dad and I were peeking out of the living room window when she hopped out of the van.  She was a wonderful girl, and gave us 11 amazing years being our pet.  She was truly a gem, and made an incredible impact on the Dalmatian breed from the whelping box.

Until we meet again my sweet girl...


Goal update

In keeping up with my June Goals, here's an update from last week.

1.WO 4-5 times a week.  No check, I got in 2/4
2. Lose 5-10 lbs. So far I'm down 1.6 for the month.  If I stay on track, I can definitley hit at least 5 lbs for the month. 2 more weeks!
3. Track Everything. Double check! Tracking is definitely the reason I had a 2.6 lb loss last night!


Scale Tales


I was so excited about this loss! I literally started celebrating before stepping off the scale. 

I'll be back tomorrow with my weekly goals update.

Have a great evening!


Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there, especially mine!

Better than seeing a plus sign in front of it! I will definitely take it after eating out Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Goal for this week, 2 lbs.

Goals Update

As promised, I'm tracking my June goals on a weekly basis.  So here's an update for June 4-10!

1. WO 4-5 times a week.  Check!  I got in some early in the week, then got sick and took a break. Thankfully this past weekend was a dog show weekend, and that gets me moving! 
2. Lose 5-10 lbs.  I'll update this one after my meeting tonight. So far, I'm up 1.2 for the month.
3. Track Everything. Check! I tracked everything last week, and have through lunch pre-tracked for today. 

I'm starting to get my mojo back. I had a couple of very lax weeks in May, but I feel motivated again!

And speaking of dog shows, my friend Jenny, who is a grandmom to the whippet puppies, won her first Best in Show yesterday!  I'm so thrilled for her!



Dinner tonight. Garlic and brown sugar chicken, cheesy mashed potatoes and roasted yellow squash and zucchini. It's very yummy!


Scale tales

257, which is up 1.2. I realized this week that in just my little amount of time going to meetings how much they actually motivate me. I didn't have a meeting last Monday, and I could tell a difference in my behavior this past week. I ate out a bunch, so hopefully some of the gain is water. I need my meeting. Next week will be good.


June Already?

Seriously, where has the time gone?  Time for a May wrap-up and time to set some goals for June.

I didn't really set any goals for May, just to stay mostly on plan and make some progress. 
May Starting: 258.8
May Ending: 255.8
Difference: -3 lbs. 

I'll take it. I had 2 weeks of maintaining in there, so I'm ok with that.  I did count this week as a maintain, because I didn't have my meeting on Monday, due to the holiday.

I finally managed to take my measurements this morning.  I took them when I recommitted on April 16th, so about 6 weeks had passed. I had a few pair of pants that seemed to be fitting slightly better in places, so I was curious where my measurements stood.

Measurements on 4/16      Measurements on 6/1 Change
Arm: 17 inchesArm: 16.25 inches-0.25
Hips: 54 inchesHips: 54 inches0
Bust: 46 inchesBust: 45 inches-1
Waist: 39 inchesWaist: 38 inches-1
Thigh: 33 inches Thigh: 30.25 inches -2.75

Total inches lost: -5.5

I'm thrilled with that number, and it gives me the motivation to make June a great month.  Speaking of June, lets get to some goals

1. Workout 4-5 times a week.
2. Lose 5-10 pounds
3. Track everyday

Anyone else have a good May?  What are your goals for June?
