Week 1 = SUCCESS!!!!

You will be proud to know that I got in all 5 workouts last week. WOOT WOOT!!!! I ended up taking off work on Friday to stay home with the girls and J had a meeting. After he got home while the girls were napping we got on our workout clothes and hit the garage for a little circuit training. We were both sweaty messes and we felt GREAT!!!

Food over the weekend was AWESOME!! We even went out to eat twice and we made great decisions. On Friday night we went to Red Lobster and we looked at the menu on-line before hand to decide what we wanted and we split a grilled ensemble and steamed brocc and a baked potato and NO CHEESE BISCUITS!! Saturday we ate at Cracker Barrell and we each got something off the low carb menu and we traded 1/2 each so we each got some chicken and some hamburger steak. YEA!! We were so pleased with our healthy choices.

Weight is down 1.6 from the beginning of the challenge. Start = 153.2, Now = 151.6. J is down 4 pounds too!

Week 2 started out GREAT with an AM workout this morning of leg strength training.

Food for today:
post workout - protein shake
B - 3 boiled egg whites, 3 egg whites and spinach omelet, 1 orange
S - apple and pb
L - chicken/steak cooked in crockpot, green beans, lettuce, bell pepper and cucs
S - protein shake
D - fish and steamed squash I think.

AWESOME!!! You guys are doing so great! I'm going to get back to my routine (pre-baby) very soon! Alivia will be one month old tomorrow, so it's time to start working off the bad habits I adopted!

Sounds like you are doing so well!! I used to work at Red Lobster years ago and those bisquits are deadly. Sooo good but soooo bad for you! Way to stay strong ;)

Good job Dawn. I need to hang out with you on weekends. LOL Actually, I need to plan better. The ice worked, and I'm back at it. Thanks.
