This has been a week of sick, but I feel like my condition is improving every day. Head cold combined with a sinus infection makes for a happy, patient mama. Except not quite. But healing.
Today marks the first day of the DietBet! I’m pumped. We’re up to 108 players and a $2160 pot. Your blogmistress weighed in yesterday, and I’ve got to lose 5.9 pounds in 4 weeks, which I think is a highly achievable goal.
I’m slowly getting back to exercise this week (unfortunately as I write, my neck is bugging me again), but here’s what the week looked like (love this exercise list format from Erica House):
Friday: .8 mile walk in park (A in her stroller, H on his bike); plank; plie squats
Saturday: 20-minute AM Yoga DVD; .9 mile run (I’ll take it!); 1.5 mile walk in neighborhood
Sunday: 2 mile walk with Baby A; plank; plie squats; tee-ball with Hendrik
I’m trying to get in parts of my booty workout whenever I can, and I’m just trying to move more with the kids. I had a blast running around with H yesterday playing ball. Plus, I get some time alone with my first-born and we both get fresh air. Perfection!
This Week’s Weight Loss: .9 pounds
Weight Loss Since Blog’s Inception: 14.5
Weight Loss Since Ailie’s Birth: 42.3
In more pressing topics: who watched The Biggest Loser premiere last night? I love those adorable kids. I welled up watching Biingo’s story within the first three minutes, so it’s obviously going to be a long season for me.
And! I went slightly over my points yesterday (3), so I was forced to watch the show sans any treats. I chugged my lemon water and planked during a commercial break. It’s challenging to sit down in front of the television without my trusty nighttime snack, but I felt energized breaking that habit.
