READY FOR SUMMER Challenge Week 2 Check-In

The end of week 2 ... it has been a very long week. Preparing for Easter has been absolutely exhausting.

My goals for this past week were:

Weight loss :: Lose at least 2 lbs. More would be great, but I really want to lose at least 2 lbs this week.

My weight on Friday morning was 289.0 (-3.8). That put me down 40.2 lbs and was the last time I had a chance to weigh this crazy holiday weekend. I did weigh this morning (Monday) but AF showed up during the night and I am bloated like a balloon 292.0 (-0.8). 

NSV (Non-Scale Victory) :: See a change in my measurements. Even a tiny change. You can see my progress so far, HERE.

I'm not doing measurements with AF here. Even my fingers are swelled. I did have a NSV though. I easily fit into my non-stretch, no-elastic waist, button up, size 24 jeans from Maurices.

THEY FIT!
Exercise :: Work out at least 5x.  

I didn't make it 5x this week. I got in 4. However, one of those days  I walked 4 miles which was a new record for me.

Nutrition :: No eating out, count my calories everyday, and stay within my pre-set goals on My Fitness Pal.

Ok, so this one didn't go so well. It's Easter weekend!

I'm ready for WEEK 3. I think I will keep my goals the same as they were this week. It is going to be great. Good luck everyone!!

  3. Yeah for 4 miles! I'm keeping similar goals for week#3 that I had for #2, sometimes it's just reminding yourself and giving time to adjust to your goals.

    Best of luck for this week!

    1. Thank you. I can clean up pretty nice. When I am here at home I am usually knee deep in some sort of mess... so there is no point in trying to look cute. LOL. I just sling my hair back, slap on whatever I have available and go.

  5. Congrats on a great week! I don't think I'd seen your progress pics (off the right side of your blog) until today, and they are very impressive! This may sound silly since I don't know you, but some things are just apparent, and I can see that you look more and more like you in each progress pic. It's like you're breaking through. It's incredibly motivational to see that!!

    Have a terrific 3rd week too! Can't wait to see your next progress pic.

    1. Thanks. I think pink looks good on me, but it isn't one of my favorite colors. I actually really like grey or white.
