I’ll admit that I was very nervous about stepping on the scale this morning, especially because of the Super Bowl and my one pound weight gain last week, but…
I lost 2.2 pounds this week! That’s a total weight loss of exactly 6 pounds since Danny and I started the Diet Bet four weeks ago.
That means I lost 4% of my body weight and will win the Diet Bet! However, the Diet Bet doesn’t end until tomorrow, not today, like I thought. As long as I don’t gain a pound overnight, I’ll be good.
I am very excited that I hit my 4%. I honestly wasn’t sure if I’d make it. And I still have a day left, so fingers crossed…
Danny did great this week. He lost 2.8 pounds for a total weight loss of 16.2 pounds! Great job, Danny!
Danny’s strategy these last few days has been to run like crazy on the treadmill…mine has been to drink a crap load of water. I guess both strategies worked.
Drinking a lot of water is a great way to aid in weight loss. It revs your metabolism, helps you feel full, cleans the toxins out of your body, and keeps you hydrated. I 100% believe that drinking a lot of water has helped me lose the weight. You should drink at least half of your body weight in ounces in water a day.
I don’t measure my water, but I know that I drink probably more than that. I use this cup everyday and drink from it all day long.
Breakfast this morning was half of a grapefruit and the new passion fruit clementine Fage yogurt.
The yogurt was okay. I’m not a huge passion fruit fan, but it was very flavorful. I didn’t taste the clementine at all, just the passion fruit.
Half of a grapefruit and a yogurt might seem like a small breakfast, but I usually eat when I wake up before I work out, and then I eat again right after I workout – kind of like two mini breakfasts instead of one big breakfast. Post workout was my normal snack today:
Elliptical – 14 minutes
BodyPump – 60 minutes
1.33 miles treadmill, walked
My abs are super sore today from yesterday’s Butt and Guts class. My abs rarely ever get sore. I don’t know if I have weaker ab muscles from having two babies or what, but even if I do a lot of crunches they don’t often get sore. So maybe this is a good thing.
Have a great afternoon!
If you’re doing the Diet Bet, did you meet your goal?
Do you drink water? Enough water?
Do you eat breakfast every day? What time?
What body part seems to get the most sore when you workout? Today my abs are sore, but it’s usually my legs!
