Goal of 70 - Week 3

Here I am for week three of my Goal of 70 postings.  I contemplated skipping it this week so that next week I could have more exciting results to share, but I figure that if I don’t post on the not-so-great weeks then really what’s the point?


This last weekend I had an awesome couple days- I got to spend time with a lot of people that are very special to me and I was busy from the time I woke up Friday morning to Sunday night.

This, however, did not help me stay on track with the weight loss I had been having up until Friday.  Over the weekend instead of losing anything I actually gained 2 pounds.  I know why this happened- dinner out + fondue + no workouts = weight gain.  Am I grateful for the weekend?  Yes, absolutely.  But, it also kind of put me off track a bit.

I have done Insanity both Monday and yesterday, and I can definitely tell that I am getting stronger!  For the biweekly “fit tests” that are part of the Insanity system I have improved on all the exercises, which is a great feeling!  Also, I can tell that not only can I do more, I’m more flexible and my form has improved- so I’m happy with all of those.

I know that muscle weighs more than fat, and that the more muscle you have the more you burn throughout the day, but I’m hoping that next week not only will I be that much stronger, but I will have also lost more weight!

Whereas last week I had lost a total of 13 pounds, as of this morning I am down 12 pounds- which means I’ve gained a pound over all.

But, positive thinking makes positive results- so I’m still proud of all I’ve done so far J

Ah, I feel your pain about the weight gain. I gained 2 pounds this week too - my biggest gain since I started weight watchers in July. =( But I also spent time not working out and eating take away food. Back on track today!!

We can do it!

Maybe it is all that MUSCLE! Good job on the insanity. It is scary for me to think about. lol :)

I am going to tell you the exact same thing I told Maggie yesterday (yup, the one that commented above). 2 pounds is no big deal. It could be chalked up to not having a big enough poop the day before. And there is nothing wrong with those weeks... they actually help your body figure out this big, ugly process of getting to your goal weight! You are so going to make it to your goal, and don't let this pothole knock you out of alignment. This week will be incredible for you!

Congrats on the weight loss! Once my sickness goes away completely I'm going to go CRAZYYYYY in the gym. I hope at least :)
