Well, I figured Friday was a good enough day to track how I am doing for the week. I don't know yet if I want to check in every other week or just do a month recap... guess I will just see how it goes!
This week we made a few small changes.
We started to plan out dinners for the whole week.
I signed up for Sparkpeople to track how much I am eating each day.
I worked out and hit up a few gym classes including Body Pump and Spinning.
We limited our deserts to a few times in the week and had fruit the other nights.
Since the weather is getting so much nicer here in the NorthEast, we have been putting our BOB stroller to good use with nice long walks. I figure a walk is better than nothing on the days I can not make it to the gym or when I need a rest day.
There are many benefits to walking that include
-Lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol)
-Raise high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol)
-Lower your blood pressure
-Reduce your risk of or manage type 2 diabetes
-Manage your weight
-Improve your mood
-Stay strong and fit
Here are my stats after week 1:
Weight- 159 lbs.
left arm- 12" no change
left calf- 14.5" no change
left thigh- 23" no change
hips-39.75" down .25
belly- 32.75" down .25
bust- 36.5" down .5 not sure how accurate this is. (probably has more to do with how long ago Logan fed. haha.)
Since Logan's schedule is a little more predictable these days, I'm working on getting myself back into more of a schedule. One thing I need to do is bite the bullet and take him to the gym daycare. This would help me hit the gym on days when Geoff is flying but I still can't bring myself to do it. I've only really left him once (besides with Geoff) and that was with my parents when we were in Ohio. I really thought that this would not be a problem for me but I guess having kids changes everything!
Have any advice on leaving your kid at the gym daycare???
What did you do this week to move your body this week?
