Weigh In Wednesday - 6/10/09

This week I weighed in on my scale down 0.6 pounds. I was actually quite surprised by the weight loss. It's that time of the month that the bloating sets in and my weight loss has been less and in some cases (before Weight Watchers) a gain would even show up. I am happy for the weight loss though...still chugging along.

During the week, I stopped by to talk to a few friends of mine that I haven't seen in almost a year. They have noticed my weight loss, how much more energy I have and how happier I am. It's great to get those compliments. It helps me to stay on the right path.

My eating has gotten better over the week. I was having a problem with my eating schedule. I was still eating good but I never knew if I was going to be able to get my morning and afternoon snacks. I've actually changed my morning snack that way I can snack whether I'm in training, in a meeting or in-between meetings. As far as my afternoon snack, I've actually made it a ride home snack since my lunch hour changes daily and afternoons are much busier.

As far as exercise, well...besides running on the treadmill and lifting weights, I haven't really done much. One thing that I have done is park out as further in the parking lot at work and use the stairs. It probably isn't as good as an aerobics class or using the elliptical or something along those lines but it's better than nothing.

My goal this week is to try to do more exercising. We have baseball every night during the week and normally don't make it home until 8:30 pm then it's time to get dinner served, get the kids showered and in bed, and get things ready for the next morning. But, I'm going to walk during my oldest son's baseball game since I can see the field as I walk the path. I also plan on working out more over the weekend than I have been. I'm hoping to see a higher weight loss next week.

How was your week? What are some exercises that you do when you are short on time?

Congrats on the weight loss... especially when feeling bloated no less! I really enjoy walking when I can't seem to get myself motivated to do anything else. I am also a fan of jumping jacks during commercials... ;)

Thanks! I'll have to give jumping jacks a try while I'm waiting for the washer or dryer to stop, kids to get out of the shower or so (I don't watch a lot of tv). The other night my oldest son and I did the football stance thing where you shake your legs...I'm not sure what it's called. It got my heart rate no doubt!
