Weight Watchers weigh-in was yesterday. Last week, I sadly gained 0.6 pounds, but somehow I managed to lose 4.6 pounds this week to make up for it! This was week 4, so it will probably be the last time I have a big loss like that in a week, but it still felt GOOD! I got “5 lbs. lost” and “5% lost” stickers. My next goal is to lose 10% of my original weight. 7 more pounds to go! When I reach that goal, I get a key chain. I WILL get that key chain next month!
Running has been nonexistent this week. My in-laws are coming Friday, and the twins’ first birthday party is Saturday, so I’ve been cleaning and shopping like a madwoman. That’s been my exercise this week.
One thing I’m a little disappointed by is the shape of my arms. I carry both babies (about 45lbs. total) up and down our stairs at least a couple times a day. Then there’s the constant lifting of the stroller to get it in and out of the van, and pushing it around with both babies and groceries in tow. I add one of those little baskets they have at grocery stores to each handle and fill them both and the basket underneath the stroller. Or, I use one of those ginormous double carts when I can find one outside. We typically hit Super Target, so I’ve been able to find one most days. Abby climbs in that little corner towards the back and I push all three through the store. Granted, it’s a lot more leisurely than a power walk through the neighborhood, but I should be rewarded at least a little!
I’ve signed up for the shredheads “buddy” program they’ll be doing in August, so I’ll start shredding again. The last time, I did really great the first 10 days, advanced to level 2, did it once and called it quits. In my defense, I had cancer! That’s so my excuse for everything. The last time I shredded was a few days before my mammogram where they found a lump. Everything went downhill for a few months after that. I won’t be shredding every day this time because I’m going to continue to run as well, but I am going to do it on my “off” days. Hopefully, I can lose another 10lbs. before we take off for California right before my 31st birthday in September. We’re driving so we’ll get there on my birthday.
