Weigh-In Wednesday. Week 8

Good morning ladies! 

Why is it a good morning you ask?

Starting weight (1.2.13): 230.4
Last week: 216.2
Today: 214.4

Hallelujah. I've done well this week. I could do better eating wise but I think that a good splurge meal once a week is healthy so I'm not beating myself up over it. 

One pound at a time.
My new motto.

I am running out of healthy meal ideas. I feel like I cook the same things over and over and I really don't want to get "burnt out" so I'm planning on spending a good amount of time on Pinterest, Food Gawker, and other places to find new healthy, fast, recipes and plan out my next 2 weeks. It is so hard to do this because Jonathan, Hazel and I the majority of our meals from home. I'll either make Jonathan lunch or he brings left-overs from dinner. And unless Hazel and I go out for lunch we always eat here. It's great because I can control what goes into our food... but it sucks when I'm in a funk (like right now) and I have no ideas because we end up eating the same thing every day. 

I have lost 16 pounds in 8 weeks. I can't believe it. I am over half-way there! I only have 9 more weeks to lose 14 more pounds. I can do this.

This was me last night in RPM

Here's what I did this week:
Wednesday: Yoga and stair master for 20 minutes.
Thursday: RPM
Friday: Body Pump and CX
Saturday: Tried to run on the treadmill but I had a head-cold and was feeling foggy and I kept losing my balance so I got on the stairmaster for 30 minutes then sat in the sauna. I was feeling terrible.
Sunday: Walk
Monday: Body Step and Body Pump
Tuesday: RPM
Today I am really tired and we don't have small group tonight so I'm going to wait and go to Body Pump with Jonathan tonight and relax today. Hopefully I can keep my eyes open!

Oh my gosh I need this!!!!
Also... if anyone wants to buy me this then we will be forever BFF's. 


Let's kick-it-up this week! 


  1. Great job girl...You are doing so good! I am with you on the burnt out on the same recipes. I swear I it chicken everyday the same way. I get so busy that I don't have anytime to find new recipes. I haven't been eating with the fam because of it. BOOO... if you find any good recipes send them my way. Have a nice relaxing day and drink lots of coffee!

  2. You are doing so great! I am so tired of chicken breast and ground turkey. I do like ground chicken, for now. I have never heard of Food GAwker, going to check that out!!

  3. Great Job! If you find some new yummy recipes, you better share!!

  6. I LOVE that bag...pinned it awhile ago, it' makes me laugh!!

    Great job this week!! I know what you mean about meals, for awhile I was following 5 dinners in one hour, I subscribed to get her meals, (I did the clean eating) but I actually found it was TOO much variety! and I've been just winging it since then. I keep telling myself I just need to come up with 4 weeks of meals, and I can just rotate them...but haven't sat down to do that yet. Please share if you find any yummy new recipes!

  7. Great job this week! Thanks for the motivation girlie! I need some new recipes too!

  11. Hi! Congratulations on your weight loss!! And good for you for going to the gym even though you were feeling like garbage. I always have the tendency to sit my sorry self on the couch on those days and then talk about how skinny I want to be.

  12. Girl you are doing awesome!! Keep it up!

  13. That's awesome, lady!! YOU'RE amazing! :-)

  14. Great job! A pound lost is progress!!
    Do you use a crock pot much? Here's a super easy, healthy go-to recipe in my house:
    3-4 chicken breast, fat trimmed (chicken can be thawed or frozen), 1 can of salsa, 1 packet of taco seasoning, crock pot liner for easy clean up
    In crock pot line with crock pot liner, place chicken breast, seasoning, salsa.
    Cook on high 4 hours, or low 6-8 hours.
    Shred chicken, allow to sit in crock pot 15 minutes prior to serving. Bam! Dinner is served.
    So easy and so good!

  15. Congrats on the almost 2lbs lost girl!! So proud!! Cooking light and hungry girl always have some great recipes!! :)
