Wednesday Weigh-In: Week 8

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Hope you are all enjoying the first few days of 2012... and keeping to your resolutions.  Personally, I don't keep resolutions.  But I guess my resolution to lose weight that I started 8 weeks ago will carry me through 2012.  So, that's my resolution - to keep on.

I've completed 8 weeks of pretty faithful workouts and decent eating habits.  I heard on the news this week, that people usually drop-off their workout-kick at about 3 months.  I can see how that would happen, especially if they are like me, and faithfully working out without really much weight loss to show for it.  This week is much of the same - no change from last week.  It still seems like my goal is far-off.  But I'm going to remain faithful with getting to the gym and try better this week to stay on a better eating routine.

New Years killed me food-wise.  Once the girls were in bed, I decided each night to treat myself with a plate full of nachos while I watched Bridezillas.  A great mix!  This week, I'm going to cut-off snacking by 8 pm and will limit snacks during the day to fruit, instead of my normal handful of Nilla Wafers or something equally as nutritious.  I'm also going to try to get the gym 5 times this week.

Onto my workouts for week 8:

Friday -
45 minutes of cardio including the elliptical machine and stationary bike

Monday -
50 minutes of cardio including the elliptical machine and stationary bike

Tuesday -
70 minutes of cardio including the elliptical machine and stationary bike

Do you still swim at all?

Hey Sweetie! I haven't been. The pool at our Y is small and is usually occupied. I'm going to try and get Autumn and Grace is swim classes soon, so I'll have some pool time then.
