Weigh-In Wednesday: 2/11/15

The sickness is still going on in the Summers household. Tucker is in the clear for the most part. Still coughing a bit, but Danny and me? Well, we pretty much took turns coughing all night. I think his immune system has thrown in the towel and is just going to go ahead and let what I had come on in. I've just got an annoying cough. The kind that no matter what you do or take just won't go away and every time you take a deep breath you have to cough. I even took Nyquil last night and still couldn't get to sleep. It looks like I'll be off to CVS again for another solution!

I had another good weigh-in this morning. I wasn't too sure what I would see when I stepped on the scale this morning. I was certain my Oreo binge, along with the fact that I had 2 pieces of pie and chili on Saturday and pasta for dinner on Sunday would show up on the scale in at least a small gain. That was not the case!
Last Week: 160.8 lbs
This Week: 160.8 lbs
Change: 0.0 lbs

Seeing the same number on the scale this morning after being sick and unable to workout through a few cheats and treats is quite a relief! It really makes me feel like I've got it figured out this time.

I was just telling Danny that on Sunday after our walk at the park. When Pinterest first came out (bless that day!), my food and motivation boards were the ones with the most pins. I was pinning workout after workout. I would take a leisurely walk with Diesel, usually about a mile or mile and a half, then come home and do a workout. Just one. I'd barely break a sweat and my heart rate barely changed. Then I would eat a pizza for dinner. I seriously ate a lot of frozen pizza and pizza rolls the first couple of years Danny and I lived together. I was going through the motions. Now I have a much better understanding about how this losing weight and being healthy stuff works. You can't just go through the motions. You have to focus on it. And you have to open your mind up to learn what it takes and find what works for you.

This week marks the official start of my new workout routine that I showed you last week. I'm feeling really good about it. I've had to modify a couple parts. Like instead of doing one of the cardio workouts 5 times through, I just do it 3 and still get in 15 minutes of cardio. It's looking like each night is going to take roughly 45 minutes. That is a little longer than I'd like, but I'm making it work.

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!


  1. I completely agree with you! Everyone says it needs to be a lifestyle change but until it actually clicks for you that it really IS a whole lifestyle change, I feel like you just keep spinning the tires. (Not YOU, obviously... you = all of us!) Focusing on living a healthy lifestyle instead of trying to lose weight has made such a difference in my world!

  2. Keep up the good work. Weight staying the same while sick is a win.

  3. I'd agree with you that its different for every person and its important for us to each figure out what works for ourselves. Plus, it is work. Losing weight and staying healthy is not easy. It takes focus, determination, dedication, and motivation. Congrats on the maintenance. I've always thought, maintaining is the hardest part of the journey. (My blogger account is no-reply.
