It’s that time again – weigh-in Wednesday!
I’ll admit that I was very nervous about stepping on the scale this morning, especially because of the Super Bowl and my one pound weight gain last week, but…
I lost 2.2 pounds this week! That’s a total weight loss of exactly 6 pounds since Danny and I started the Diet Bet four weeks ago.
That means I lost 4% of my body weight and will win the Diet Bet! However, the Diet Bet doesn’t end until tomorrow, not today, like I thought. As long as I don’t gain a pound overnight, I’ll be good.
I am very excited that I hit my 4%. I honestly wasn’t sure if I’d make it. And I still have a day left, so fingers crossed…
Danny did great this week. He lost 2.8 pounds for a total weight loss of 16.2 pounds! Great job, Danny!
Danny’s strategy these last few days has been to run like crazy on the treadmill…mine has been to drink a crap load of water. I guess both strategies worked.
Drinking a lot of water is a great way to aid in weight loss. It revs your metabolism, helps you feel full, cleans the toxins out of your body, and keeps you hydrated. I 100% believe that drinking a lot of water has helped me lose the weight. You should drink at least half of your body weight in ounces in water a day.
I don’t measure my water, but I know that I drink probably more than that. I use this cup everyday and drink from it all day long.
Breakfast this morning was half of a grapefruit and the new passion fruit clementine Fage yogurt.
The yogurt was okay. I’m not a huge passion fruit fan, but it was very flavorful. I didn’t taste the clementine at all, just the passion fruit.
Half of a grapefruit and a yogurt might seem like a small breakfast, but I usually eat when I wake up before I work out, and then I eat again right after I workout – kind of like two mini breakfasts instead of one big breakfast. Post workout was my normal snack today:
- Elliptical – 14 minutes
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
- 1.33 miles treadmill, walked
My abs are super sore today from yesterday’s Butt and Guts class. My abs rarely ever get sore. I don’t know if I have weaker ab muscles from having two babies or what, but even if I do a lot of crunches they don’t often get sore. So maybe this is a good thing.
Have a great afternoon!
- If you’re doing the Diet Bet, did you meet your goal?
- Do you drink water? Enough water?
- Do you eat breakfast every day? What time?
- What body part seems to get the most sore when you workout? Today my abs are sore, but it’s usually my legs!
