6 wks, 6 lbs: Week 2
After another week of working out and using MyFitnessPal.com to track my food and exercise, I'm down to 145! (I have seen 144 and change on the scale a few times this week, but I'm going to sandbag and call it 145.)
Over the weekend B Daddy and I took the kids to the YMCA pool twice and I realized that I'll probably be there 3-4 times a week this summer. Being a in a swimsuit for a couple hours each day is AWESOME motivation to eat a healthy breakfast and get a morning work out in for sure.
I really like the way myfitnesspal is set up. I think (readers can you confirm?) it's similar to Weight Watchers in that you have a set calorie (points) goal each day and you can eat whatever you want to meet it. You end up making your own healthy choices because you want low-calorie food that is filling as opposed to being commanded to eat fish and steamed veggies for dinner each night. I always opt for the hardest workout I can squeeze in each day too, because I know a harder work out will mean I get more calories alloted to my day.
I've blown my calorie allotment on several days, but I still don't feel like I'm "dieting". And so far....I am seeing progress. Hard to believe it's only been two weeks though. Feels like forever. Anyone else working to lose some winter weight or baby weight out there? How's it going? Encourage me! :)
