A great weight loss week #Mamavation Monday

I was a bit bummed about the last two weigh-ins because I didn’t lose anything one week, and only .5 pounds the other. I was working out more, but just wasn’t seeing results. I also realize I have a difficult time doing a #Mamavation Monday post when I’ve had a bad or unproductive week. I’ll work to do better!

Fast forward to this past week and I had a bad week as far as exercise goes. I didn’t workout once from Saturday before last through this past Saturday. I’ve been uber busy and the weather has not cooperated. At. All.

So I was nervous about getting on the scales.

I lost 1.5 pounds since last Monday’s weigh-in. Yipee!

Here’s the thing… I seem to lose more weight when I don’t exercise. I’m not sure if I’m eating too many calories when I exercise — because I feel hungrier when I do exercise. Or, I’m eating too few calories.  Either way, the scales just don’t go down when I exercise.

I spent an hour dancing yesterday. I love dancing, so I think I’m going to try to dance for an hour at least 2 more times this week. My week starts on Sunday since that is how the week starts using FitBit.

My official starting weight was 166.5 on October 15, 2012 (although I weighed 170.5 in July 2012). Today I weigh 144 pounds. That’s a 22.5 pound loss. I’m 15 pounds from my goal weight.

For this coming week, I will continue to track every calorie using My Fitness Pal. Start back on my running – I registered for the Color Me Rad 5k on April 6th. As of right now I can barely run 1.5 miles (and I HATE running, by the way). I have four weeks from this coming Saturday to be able to run a 5k and I’m nervous. I so want to run the entire 5k…

How are you doing with your weight loss, exercise, or other lifestyle goals you’ve set for yourself?
