Must have been the traveling!!?

Well here it is another weigh in wednesday and I am up 4 pounds. I didn't think it would be a good week but I didn't think it would be so much. I did weigh myself later in the day than last week but I still gained something. I can tell you lots of reasons why. I think it was because of going to Milwaukee area for the weekend with my boys. We ate out on Friday at the cafe at target and I had pizza hut. No soda, milk. Then that night my mom made yummy chicken quesadillas. Then Saturday we went for a super long walk, I got almost 7000 steps on our walk. Then I made hm carrot cakes for the birthday party and then hm cream cheese frosting and cowboy spaghetti (from Rachel Ray) I only had one piece of the cake and thought I ate well but.... Then that night we had mcdonalds', i had a cheeseburger with a few fries but no soda. Sunday morning we went out to eat with my dad at Old Country Buffet. Lunch was leftovers at my moms before we headed home. Also last week I made peanut butter cookies for church to be sent to some soldiers in Iraq, so of course those were around the house too. So I guess I do know what the problem was, poor eating choices. I did buy the EA sports active, more workouts for the Wii and did it on Monday night and tuesday night. I think I will go and do it now even though today is supposed to be a rest day. I really like it. I will try to make some better choices this weekend but it will be really hard with Thanksgiving tomorrow. I will get some extra workouts in. I hope to have some better numbers next week.

So today is another weigh in Wednesday and I lost again. Yeah. I can't believe it. So I am at 200lbs even with a lose of 2.2 lbs. The wii fit guy yelled at me for losing too much too quickly. =) I didn't even know how it would be since I have my period this week and haven't been working out like last week. I did the shred 4 days last week. Did not workout at all on Sat or Sun except for getting groceries, etc. Then I finally walked on the treadmill this morning for 1 mile, but it was less than 20 minutes so a little improved from last week. We have been really trying to watch what we eat and how much. We have stopped snacking before bed and just been ignoring our bodies when they try to tell us we should eat at that time. We found a great breakfast idea in the biggest loser cookbook with yogurt, apples, raisins and grape nuts. I ordered the hungry girl cookbooks from the library, haven't gotten them yet but I am sure we will find some good ideas in those as well.

I won the bacon giveway on the sisterhood. I am pretty excited to win something. I would have loved to win the wii active game but this is pretty cool too. I am going to Milwaukee on Friday morning with the boys by myself for the weekend. We are having a joint birthday party for Sam, who will be 10 and my nieces, Nyanna who will be 9 and Ellery who will be 1. So I don't know how much exercising I will get in as my parents have a very small house but I will bring my shredding video and hand weights and we will see.

Thanks for the comments back to me Ladies. I am new to this blogging thing and honestly didn't see them till today. =)

Today is Wednesday weigh in and I just weighed in on the Wii fit and I am down 2.6 pounds from a week in a half ago. Yeah. I have walked 5 miles between Monday and Tuesday so far. I did the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred on monday and tuesday night. I am feeling better and sleeping great. I am very sore especially my thighs and shoulders but well worth it. The boys did the workout with Tom on Monday night and with me last night. They obviously don't do all of it correctly but they want to do it too so why not? I went shopping for groceries last weekend and I bought whole wheat tortillas and no one complained, well Sam did a little but they all ate them, even the daycare kids. I have been doing the whole wheat noodles for awhile. I tried to be more aware of what I was buying and if it was necessary or not. I also bought oatmeal and cream of wheat for breakfast instead of just cereal all the time. I mean we do the oatmeal and cream of wheat but it is usually on the weekends.
I have done like 4 loads of wash today, stripped our bed and the boys. Kids are all down for a nap. I should scoot and do my bulletin for church on Sunday too. Have a great weekend.

So I finally weighed in on Sunday night and I was at 204. I then did play on the Wii Fit for about 25 minutes after that. Monday and Tuesday I didn't get any real exercise in but today we went for a 25 minute walk this morning and then I raked leaves for the kids to jump in. I am trying to watch what we eat more but is has been really hard with Halloween Candy all over. My husband went through it all today. Three kids got way too much candy and good stuff this year not just the cheap stuff. I requested the Biggest Loser cookbook from the library, because someone on the Hood was talking it up, we get it today. I am hoping to find some good recipes in it that we already do but switch it up to be healthier. We watched biggest loser last night, thought it was a good show. Bought the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred about a month ago and have not opened it yet. my husband brought it downstairs a few nights ago. I think we might try it out tonight after the kids go to bed. I am not going to weigh myself because I don't think it has changed since Sunday. Hope to be more active as the week goes on.
