Weigh-In Wednesday: 3/4/15... Except its Thursday 3/5/15

So, I started a Weigh-In Wednesday post yesterday afternoon when I felt like I finally had the energy to type. Half way into it I found out I was wrong. Tucker and I were up most of Tuesday night taking turns throwing up. Danny was up with us to help us cope and clean ourselves up. For a guy who "doesn't do puke" he handled the situation very well. I was impressed. 

Anyways.. onto my late weigh-in.

Last Week: 161 lbs
This Week: 159.2 lbs
Change: -1.8 lbs

I'm not going to get too excited about the  loss given the activities from last night. I think some of its very possible because my eating was pretty on point for most of the week, but that was just most of the week.

Here is where I'm at on a few things:
Last week I talked about how I was going to cut sugar out in April and follow the 21 day sugar detox. Then Erin @ She's A Big Star convinced me to read It Starts With Food. I am so glad I did! My plan now is to do the Whole30 after Easter instead of the 21 day sugar detox. Both have the same end goal: eat better and reset your body. Plus, Whole30 allows for more than lemons, limes, andone green apple or one banana per day. I don't love green apples and bananas make me feel hungry after I eat them.

Second thing. My damn leg. It still hurts. It hurts more than just after I work out. It hurts while I'm driving. It hurts while I'm walking. I'm starting to limp. The MRI bill hurts too, especially since it "didn't show anything." So, I'm taking this week, and possibly next week, off from exercise. If it still hurts at that point, then I'm getting a second opinion. We're getting to the point in the year where any boot and recovery time will have to be done when the weather is nice. I don't want to be in a boot or doing exercises when I could be walking or running at the park. And I certainly don't want to be in a boot on my Alaskan cruise. So, no working out for me. Which stinks because I feel like I've really made progress in my attitude towards it. Like I said, work ended real shitty on Friday, and I went home and put in a hard workout, which made me feel better.

That's all I've got for this week on the weigh-in. Hopefully I don't gain 8 pounds in my break from physical activity.


  1. Well first of all, get better! I hope the bug goes quickly...Second of all, I'll say a prayer for your leg, it is certainly no fun having an injury. I am dealing with a leg issue since November, so I know what you're feeling, it sucks. I can still run, but not too far of a distance....Hugs for speedy healing!!

  2. Yay, I am SO glad you read the book - I knew it would resonate with you! And SO glad you're going to do the Whole30. You should never ever ever be hungry... you can eat plenty on Whole30, you just have to be eating the right things. It's tough to get started but SO worth it!! Let me know if/when you have any questions... always happy to help!

  3. Did my second Whole30 in January, felt so good! Good luck!

  4. I hope you feel better soon and I'm looking forward to your Alaska cruise photos. I used call anchorage, Alaska home. If you focus on nutrition, you will lose weight even without exercise. Weight loss happens when you take in less calories than your body needs. So if you focus on good nutrition and ending the day with a calorie deficit, then you'll continue to lose weight. Good luck!
