Weigh-In Wednesday: 2/18/15

This weeks weigh-in can be described in one word: Lucky

Last Week: 160.8 lbs
This Week: 160.2 lbs
Change: -.6 lbs

I seriously don't know how else to explain how a loss of a half of a pound other than by sheer luck. I ate like a king all weekend. I say king and not queen because if we're being honest, I ate nearly as much as Danny. I think we both ate at least 12 mini Reese eggs between 12:00pm on Saturday and 10:00 pm on Sunday. 

As usual, after a few days of eating very poorly, it felt good to clean things up a bit once Monday rolled around. I say a bit because we are almost completely out of food and we had chicken noodles and cake for dinner Monday night. I shared with Tucker though and for a 1 year old, he can put some food away. So that was helpful!

Something that has been on my mind lately has been the next step in my monthly challenge: dairy.

I'm having a hard time deciding how I want to go about this one. Do I cut everything out, even the hidden dairy, like I did when we were experimenting with Tucker's diet while I was breastfeeding? Do I just cut out the extra dairy like the cheese on my eggs, creamer in my coffee, and my beloved hot pepper cheese cubes? Do I allow myself the glass of chocolate milk or the greek yogurt as a post workout snack? There are options when it comes to this one and the only reason I'm giving myself the option is the current situation with my leg and the fact that its still hurting. I have a feeling that the pain is the result of poor-ish bone density. I'm taking a calcium supplement every night, but I still need all the help I can get. So, I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm leaning towards cutting out the extras, with a list of said extras, and allowing a handful of snacks. So we'll see. I'll keep you all posted.

Workouts are going well. I got 4 out of 5 workouts in last week so that was good. I'm finding myself less motivated to do these Pinterest workouts compared to how I was with T25. Hopefully I can get that motivation back. Being sick didn't help so now that I'm not hacking up a lung hopefully that will help things.

My goal for the rest of the week and weekend is to keep my eating in check. Another free for all weekend with food probably won't turn out like the last couple have.


  1. I've cut dairy out completely right now. It's not so bad. But I will definitely be integrating it back into my diet as soon as I can. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    1. I've cut it out completely before and I think I could do it again. It's just deciding if I should if I really am having bone issues, you know?

  2. I think dairy has some good benefits and you should do what is best for you. I sure hope you're not having bone issues though! Have you done any strength training? I've heard that is good for strengthening bones too. If you'd like to say hi, please email me at estherdavison@gmail.com. Good luck!

  3. I could never cut out dairy! Kudos to you though! And great job on knocking off a half pound while also eating like a king!
