So I totally forgot about Fitness Friday last week. So this is a 2 week update.
The bottom line: I lost 2 pounds
The details: Not from working out
When I originally decided to do FF, I didn’t give myself a weight number as a goal, because I’m happy with my current weight. I just want to be in better shape. Yes, this might mean my weight goes up (from muscle) or down (like it did). But I don’t want to focus on that. So what did I do?
Activity: I really increased my activity. We went outside everyday and I power walked, while pulling a 100 pound dog and pushing a stroller. It was great.
Food: I didn’t change my eating habits at all. I did start logging my food again in My Fitness Pal, but since we make most of our food from scratch (including bread!), it’s hard to do. I don’t know the nutrient value of the bread I bake.
Work Out: I was all ready to do it once, but our Wii wasn’t working and after I fiddled around with it for almost an hour…Henry started to get fussy. I should have just given up and put on a DVD. Lesson learned.
I did take Henry to swimming lessons and bounced up and down in the water for 30 minutes straight which KILLED my legs. And I’d LIKE to count that but I’m not going to.
Activity: Almost none. It was FREEZING and I didn’t go outside unless I had to. And I certainly wasn’t going to take Henry out in what felt like -45 degrees. I’m not exaggerating. With the wind chill that is what the temperature was.
Food: I stopped logging my food because it was so time consuming. I stopped going back for second helpings. If I was still hungry, I made a salad. Also? We are all out of Christmas Chocolate. Thank goodness for that!
Work Outs: None. No attempts. John went in the pool with Henry this week for Swimming Lessons.
So where does that leave me? Oddly, 2 pounds lighter. I ordered another work out DVD. Hopefully having a new one will motivate me to use it. The weather is supposed to be above freezing for at least the beginning of next week so that should be good for my activity.
Wish me Luck.
