Weigh in Wednesday 5-1-13

Good Morning!  Can you believe it’s May already? Unbelievable how fast time goes.  Let’s get right to this week’s weigh in.

weigh in wednesday 2

My weight last week – 166.3
My weight this week – 165.1
Weight loss this week ~ 1.2
Total weight loss (since starting Whole30 2/18/13) – 18.3

I can’t even tell you the last time I consistently lost weight more than 2 weeks in a row. I used to have a Weigh in tab at the top of my blog but I removed it because it was ridiculous how often I would lose one week and gain the next.  It wasn’t because a certain program wasn’t working, it was because I wasn’t fully committed.  I would repeatedly self sabotage even though I knew how upset I would get when I saw a gain.

Nevertheless, I’m feeling really good about the way I’ve been eating.  I’m still struggling to get into a workout routine.  I need more time in the day (don’t we all?).  I start work earlier now, so my mornings look like this:

4:30am: Wake up
4:30-5:30: Blog
5:30-6:15: Shower and get ready
6:15-6:30: Eat breakfast
6:30: Leave for work
7:30: Arrive at work

So, as you can see, my mornings are a little tied up.  I do have time in the evening, it’s just a matter of making a commitment and getting it done.  Since this is a new month, I’m challenging myself to get at least 3 workouts in a week.  Doesn’t sound like a lot but some week’s it’s more than I’ve been doing. If I get it more than 3, that’s great!

The usual.



Same as yesterday.

Dane made chicken salad with homemade paleo mayo.


It was supposed to be a rainy, ugly day yesterday but it ended up being nice, so I went out for a lunchtime walk.


It felt a lot warmer than 72 degrees when I was done!

Do you plan out your workouts or do you wing it?

Are you able to workout during your lunch hour?

What are your May goals?

    Congrats on your loss this week!!
    I sit down and come up with a new workout routine every 6-8 weeks (in general). If I have a plan, that helps keep me on track. I also put it on my daily “to-do” list. Most days I find the time, some days I don’t. Life happens, but I really make an effort to be active and consistent. Figure out the time frame that works for you. Mornings are generally best for me, but your morning routine is pretty well set. It’s also important to remember that you don’t have to kill yourself working out. Walking, pilates, yoga & strength training are pretty much all I do… Good luck finding a routine!

    Way to go on your progress! Making the small changes at a time is a good way to make habits stick, so you’ll get in a groove with your workouts!

    When I was running, all of my workouts were pre-planned. I think I kind of need that structure to keep going.

    Now that I’m doing PT and I’m supposed to be walking more, my goal for May is going to be to track every day. Although for me, it feels like I’m not doing much, if I track my time/distance every day, I should see my progress by the end of the month!

    I’m up at 4:45 to work out! I have to leave for work by 7:45 so it’s just enough time to get everything done.
