Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In: Starting Week 15


Wednesday's are coming so quickly now, I'm sorry I'm not posting on anything else, but besides trying to lose weight, not much else is going on.

I was lazy this past week (again) and haven't really gone to the gym or worked out until last night. Which is why I didn't get around to posting, but I count Wednesday's as part of the new week, so I'm already starting off at a good note! Still, I didn't lose any weight, just maintained. I am shooting to lose 1 pound a week from this point on, time to get back on track!

1. Reiterate my goal and where I stand in reference to this goal. (BMI info from this website)

Starting weight: 145        
Last Week's Weight: 136
Current Weight: 135 (-10 lbs total, 10 lbs to goal!!!)   
Goal Weight : 125       

Starting BMI: 26.5
Last Week's BMI: 24.1
Current BMI: 23.9 (In the normal range!!)
Goal BMI: 18.5-24.9 or exactly 22.1 for goal weight

2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals.

Progress on last week's activities:

1. Get to the gym and walk/run on the treadmill or go for a hike: Fail
2. Continue with no soda or beer: It was St. Patrick's Day, I'm part Irish and I'm from Chicago, does it suffice to say that I drank? Anybody out there heard of Unofficial? If you know what I'm talking about, you're cool in my book.
3. Go to yoga class: Fail
4. Continue with My Fit.ness Pal app: Fail
5. Limit eating out this week to one time/one meal: um......oops...
Activities for this coming week: (the more activities I attempt, the more I am likely to achieve)

1. Get to the gym and walk/run on the treadmill or go for a hike
2. Continue with no soda or beer
3. Go to yoga class
4. Continue with My Fit.ness Pal app
5. Limit eating out this week to one time/one meal

3. Post a (reasonably healthy) recipe that I've tried, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out for people to try, a photo update of my weight loss, or anything else I feel like sharing. 
Ok, so the organic food delivery from this week included bok choy and kumquats, so I'm thinking that sometime soon I will make chicken stirfry with vegetables including bok choy and also adding the kumquats. However, there are a lot of kumquats, what do I do with all the kumquats?

Side note: The more you say/type kumquats, the less it sounds like a word. And, seriously?! who came up with that name, kumquats...what is that? it's not a real word!

  1. Unofficial: Yes! I lived in Champaign from 2005-2009. Do we have that in common too?

  2. I have never eaten a kumquat...let me know how they are. Good job maintaining!

  3. Nice job!!!! Half way there!!!

  4. That anonymous comment was me btw...stupid blogger

  5. Ha, my husband's babies are his citrus trees (like 15 or so!), we have kumquat growing in our house. we don't get many but we just eat them as they are I think. On other citrus fruits we do marmalade, jelly or lemon pie.

  6. Dude, I've said it once, I'll say it again, maintaining is better than gaining! Way to stick with it!!
