Week 10/52: Goals Check-in

Woohoo!  Double-digit weeks!

Last week was stressful – and this one is too – hence I am nearly done with Week 11 and just now blogging on Week 10. At the end of Week 9, hubby & I decided to transition our son to a toddler bed.  You know, for fun… ha. ha. ha.  It’s going ok, but some nights it takes forevvvvvver to get him to sleep.  Anyway, that was stressor #1.

#2 is the defeating feeling of having lost zip for the second week in a row.  And if you had seen how much I worked in the yard Friday & Saturday you would be shocked too.  I have talked to friends about it and I know you mean well tossing out the “p” (plateau) word, but I have a hard time believing with so much more weight to lose I have hit a plateau.  Even though I hate the “p” word I have done some research and it seems very possible I have hit a plateau.  The good news is I don’t think I have to stay on this “p” long!  More on that in another post, because it gets kind of sciencey-mathy (Yes, that’s a real word).

Here’s how I did with my goals this (really last) week:

  • Log my food & exercise. CHECK!  Yes, even the Texas Roadhouse rolls I enjoyed on my “I lost 20 pounds” date with my husband.  I also logged the whopping 130 calories I burned going bowling on the same date. 
  • Follow my Emeals Portion Controlled plan. CHECK! I made some pretty yummy stuff, but we also had a lot of leftovers from other meals.  Saturday (St. Patrick’s Day) we went to my Dad & his wife’s house for corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, peas, and the biggest cupcakes I’d ever seen.  It was all delicious.  I kept my portions small & estimated the calories as well as I could.
  • Eliminate my addiction to sugar. In progress! Ummm… did you see my comment about the cupcakes above?  I haven’t eliminated my sugar addiction yet.  I try everyday and do pretty well, but…… man, it’s hard!!
  • Exercise 5 days a week. CHECK! So. much. gardening. I think I exercised 3 days at the gym and then literally worked 6 hours in the garden on Friday and another 3 on Saturday. My legs were still sore yesterday from all the shoveling, digging, & squatting.
  • Get more sleep. Someday……
  • Blog on my progress of my goals and post my weight Not so great last week, just not enough hours in the day to get everything done!
  • Lose 52 Pounds in 52 Weeks. I didn’t lose a blessed thing this week, not even an ounce.  Ugh… sounds like the “p” word…  I was really ticked on Tuesday morning when I did my weigh-in.  I have a friend at work who has also been working out and joined Weight Watchers.  She & I started close to the same weight and she has now lost 10 pounds more than I.  I am very happy for her and she looks great, but I so want to be there too!  I am frustrated!!! 22  pounds down, 30 to go.

Now time for my friends to check in! How has your week been? Have you accomplished any goals?
