While I haven’t been posting about my weight loss the past few weeks, I have still been attending my weekly meetings and weigh-ins. No, I haven’t been slacking off, I have just been enjoying a well-needed break from my laptop. But now the time has come to bite the bullet and get back to work.
At my week 15 weigh-in, I was down 0.8 lbs; week 16 I was down 0.2 lbs; and week 17 I am down 1 lb. These three weigh-ins bring my total weight loss so far to 25.2 lbs.
As I stand at the 2019, I look forward to continuing my weight loss journey. 2018 was filled with its fair share of challenges, obstacles, and disappointments, but it also had a good amount of positives – both of which I have shared with you. Looking forward into 2019, the amount of weight I would like to lose is most likely more than I can lose in a year’s time, but I’m going to give it my best effort. Is this a resolution? No, I don’t do resolutions – I set goals and work on them all year and sometimes for several years.
To start 2019, my planned meals for next week are as follows:
Egg & Sausage Burritos- 3 SP
Oatmeal – 2 SP
Banana – 0 SP
Turkey Meatballs in Marinara over Squash Noodles – 6 SP
Sunday – Instant Pot Weight Watchers Lasagna – 5 SP
Friday – Turkey Sloppy Joes with Tater Tots – 9 SP
Saturday – Taco Soup with Tortilla Chips- 4
Vegetables or beans served as sides
Lays Poppables – 2 SP
Bananas – 0 SP
Cheese Stick – 1 SP
Turkey Stick – 1 SP
Christmas Candy – Points vary
Watch Your Weight Cakes – 3 SP
Zumba classes were called off for the week of Christmas. Though disappointing, I’ve been having some pain issues, so a week off gave my joints some time to rest and heal. It was definitely good to get back to the classes, though. I goto Zumba Tuesday-Thursday and Saturday.
Tool of the Week
My fitness tool of the week is a good pair of shoes. Whether you hit the gym, walk briskly outside or enjoy a fitness class as I do, a great pair of shoes is a must. Have a look a the ASICS Women’s Gel-Cumulus 17 Running Shoe. Remember though, no one shoe fits all, so pick out what feels good (and definitely looks good) to you.
