Welcome back to Wednesday!
I’ve decided that with every Wednesday weigh-in, I’m going to set some goals for the coming week. I will also report on my progress toward those alongside my weigh-in number.
But first, today’s magic number…
Unfortunately, I did not make it to the Zumba class that I mentioned I wanted to attend last night, because my commute home took nearly two hours. (Traffic was absolutely horrendous!) To make up for it, and to enjoy the nice evening weather, I took at 25 minute walk with our dog, Luna, instead. I didn’t burn nearly as many calories as I would have at Zumba, but I was glad that I didn’t totally give up when my plans changed. (Shout out to my hubby for the encouragement!)
Anyway, this week’s effort paid off, because…I am down another 1.8 pounds!
I now weigh 170.6 pounds, for a total loss of 6.4 pounds.
It’s a huge loss for one week, and one that I wasn’t expecting! Maybe the scale will correct itself next week, but for now, I’m definitely going to bask in it!
For my goals, by next week’s weigh-in, I will:
- Lose 1 pound.
- Attend back-to-back BodyPump and BodyCombat classes at my gym, Sport&Health, on Saturday morning.
- Try two new recipes. (I think I have one covered for dinner tomorrow night.)
Also, once I reach a 10 pound total loss, I plan to buy myself a new workout outfit. I have a pair of really great Nike shorts, and I would like to find another pair of them.
Thank you for all of your support, friends! I feel great and am so happy with my progress.
Have you ever been surprised, in a good way, by the scale?
Do you set weekly goals for yourself?
