Fitness Friday {week 9}

the blessed life

Wow! We've been at this for over 2 months now! Well this week was a whirlwind (as they all have been since going back to work).  However, we had parent teacher conferences on Tuesday night.  And my sweet little girl (who is 4 months old today!! post to come later!) decided she wanted to start getting up quite a bit during the night. And instead of going right back down after eating...she now likes to grunt and moan quite a bit before going back to sleep.  This has all made for one tired/zombie-ish mommy! Working out hit the back burner!

How did Week 9 go?

My goal this week was to limit starches. I did pretty well with this.  However, I did forget one night and had french fries (have you noticed yet how they are my weakness?).  I also would eat something occasionally during the week and think, "oh, wait, should I be eating this?" All I know, is that my diet definitely is improving through these weekly goals...that's success right there.

Was I active?

One day out of seven.  Enough said.  I'm determined to get back at it, though.  I really do still enjoy working out when I have the time and energy.

Thursday-Circuit Training (16 minutes); push-ups (74--I'm currently on day 3 of the 4th week of the push-up challenge)

Weight Loss?

Yes...down 1 more pound! (down 8 lbs from starting weight)


Down in my thighs this week by 1/4"!
Down in my waist this week by 1/4"!

Waist: 29 3/4" (down 2 1/4" from starting measurement)
Thigh: 21" (down 1 3/4" from starting measurement)
