Friday's Follow-Up: Fitting Back Into My Clothes- Wk 7

So last week, I left off at 117.8. And if I weren't an adult who understands the concept of free will and taking responsiblity for my own actions, well, then I'd totally blame my husband and his friends for what the scale says now: 118.6. Over the weekend, they tailgated and took only what they thought they'd need with them. Leaving behind so much junk food; cookies, chips, candy, etc. And then I decided I'd make them Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes, as I saw the recipe online that day. By Monday evening, the scale said 120.6 and I didn't feel that great. But, since things happen for a reason, this is the good that came of it:

1) I remembered just how horrible junk food makes me feel and I'm not going to forget that feeling any time soon.

2) On Tuesday, I finally did a custom workout on the EA Sports Active and it was amazing! It truly is like having your own personal trainer at home!! I got so much energy from just one workout, that I was awake until 1AM. Just the boost I needed from the lack of energy the few days before.

3) I lost two of those pounds by eating healthy throughout the week.

4) I told my hubby we should try to go all of August with no junk food; focusing on our snacks and lunch sides. (Though, I agreed he could still have his occasional pop.) It will be interesting to see what snacks and lunch items I can find for him that are decently healthy and that he likes.

5) It's put me on a mission to find healthier recipes.

So that's my week in a nutshell. 2.8 lbs gained, 2 lbs lost. What's important is that I know where I went wrong and I got back on track again. No one says you have to stop exercising just because the scale doesn't go the way you want.

Remember, scales are just one tool of measurement. You should always have a second--maybe clothes or actual body measurements. One of my readers only lost 2 lbs but lost 4 inches, too! (Congrats!!)

How did your week go? Do you have any fitness or healthy blog posts to share? Leave a linky or comment to share.


  1. Great thoughts on the subject. I was the same way with the junk food...had a couple terrible days, and I felt terrible from it...then ate good and felt good!

  2. Feeling pretty good this week. I was able to get to the Y three times this week! I officially weigh in tomorrow. I've been eating pretty good this week, too. Ice cream was offered to me TWICE this week and I declined TWICE. I'm very proud of myself for that.
