Healthy Thursday

This week I definitely did better. Did I do as well as my goals aimed for? No, but then I quickly found out that I am not quite in shape to do that video every day. Using the same muscles doing those moves, wore me out quicker than I expected, but it's good because that means my body is getting stronger for it.

For the weigh in : 277.3 (down 1.9lbs from last week)

I will admit that I was aiming for something more than that, but it is a good number for one week. It is a healthy weight loss number so I am happy with it.

For exercise this week:

Jillian’s Cardio Kickbox: 3 times

Arm exercises w/ 8lbs, 2 sets of 15 reps: 3 times

IntenSati : 1 time for 20 minutes

Walked home (3 miles) : 1time, it took 47 minutes, about 15.6 minutes per mile

For sweets/food:

I'll admit a some peanut M&Ms called my name, along with a couple peanut butter Dove candies. I did much better than last week though and next week will be even better. Ate salad every day for lunch at work.

For sleep:

This was my real struggle part, as I was trying to fit too much into each day and not getting enough sleep at all. Closer to 6 hours a night, not good.

Overall feeling:

I was happy with what I did this week, even though I know I can do better. Really happy, today was nice enough that I was able to walk home, which is an exercise I enjoy. Hope the weather stays on this positive momentum.

Goals for next week:

Sleep is my big goal, at least 7 hours of sleep each night. Winding down even more on the sweets and working out more.


  1. Sounds like a good week! Hope you manage some sleep next week.

  2. Sleep has been my problem this week. I know some of it is the time change, but I just can't get to bed in a timely fashion. Bah!

    Congrats on the weight loss. Just remember, slow and steady wins the race.
