Transformation Tuesday: Week 5

This week was better, but there is still some improvement to be made.

Like most trying to lose weight, I did well all week and then came the weekend. My cleaning marathon didn't help and neither did the birthday cake I ate on Saturday. And let's not forget date night. That margarita was worth every calorie. I still don't want to know how many calories were in it, but it was still worth it. This week will be better though. I'm headed to the grocery during my lunch hour and a half and that'll be a restart on my healthy eating. I think I'm just going to have to face the music that I need to go every week in order to eat the way I need too. I try to stretch it out to 2 weeks and it just doesn't work. But it's better than me relying on fast food and take out. True story: I went to McDonald's last night because I didn't have enough brain power or energy to think of something to make with minimal food in our house. I ordered 2 salads. For me. It had been nearly 8 hours since I had eaten and I was starving! I figured 2 salads was better than a salad and a sandwich or fries. That shit was expensive though! Almost $11. No thanks!

Workouts. Those were pretty good. I got 3 C25K's in and I did pretty well on them I think. I didn't hate them at all, but my monitor said I burnt less calories than I normally do. Whatever. I didn't do any of it this weekend though since I was cleaning. I ate biscuits and gravy instead.

I'm not sure where I stand as far as the number on the damn scale though. I do know that yesterday I felt like a busted can of biscuits as a result of my poor weekend eating. Clothes fit about the same. And milk has stayed the same. I'm afraid I'm one of those people that don't lose weight while breastfeeding and actually hold onto weight until they are done. Yayyyyy me!

I think I've figured out my next move though: T25. Christi @ A Full Time Keller has been raving about it for a few weeks and has told me she is seeing awesome results. I need awesome results. I also need quick, effective workouts. T25 is made up of different 25 minute workouts. Sign me up! That's usually about all I have in me before I get bored, or tired, or worried about the 73 other things I have to do. I just need to figure out when I want to start.

That's it on the weight loss front for this week.


  1. ek- Yay! You won't be disappointed. Just stick with it and you will do awesome.

  2. Love the new look of your page! :) Sounds like your doing great! Keep up the good work! Sometimes it's nice to do a workout video that is quick and step by step! I've never done the T25 but I did the AdvoCare Can You 24 video leading up to our wedding and I really liked following something rather than keeping track of my own exercises/runs.
