Progress Report

I'm down 2 pounds.  I was actually hoping for a little more since it's only week 1 (any other week and I'd be ecstatic with a 2-pound loss) but I think I ate a little too much chocolate yesterday, plus I didn't make it to the gym because Paul was busy mowing the lawn and packing for his hiking trip this weekend so I was in charge of the girls.  Yep, Paul left this morning and won't be back until Sunday evening.  Yiikes.  I've never been alone with the girls for that long.  I sure hope they nap!

Anyway, on to my workouts this week (8/7 to 8/12):

Saturday - treadmill (37 minutes)
Monday - 30 Day Shred, 23-minute walk outside with girls in the stroller
Tuesday - treadmill (45 minutes)
Wednesday - 25-minute walk outside with girls in the stroller, Elliptical (12 minutes), weights (20 or 25 minutes), treadmill (10 minutes)
Friday - Not sure yet, planned to Shred this morning but never got to it, hopefully will walk after the girls' nap

This weekend I will be visiting friends and family out of town so I will be eating out for 2 or 3 meals, which pretty much means those 2 pounds will be right back on come Monday, regardless of how much I exercise or what I eat (or don't eat) the rest of the time.  That's just how my body works.  Eating out=weight gain, regardless of anything else.  Of course, if I just ate a green salad with dressing on the side then maybe I'd be ok, but I just can't do that.  Anyway, I will try and watch my portions and pick up where I left off on Monday.
