Weight-loss Check in: Week 1

Weight loss this week: 4 lbs! (4 lbs total, 16 to go!)

Healthy eating highlights: I did great with eating healthy this week. I made some dinners which I *hate* doing, but it was okay because it gave me lots of leftovers for other meals! 

Exercise highlights: Tuesday's Zumba class was canceled, which I found out via a flimsy piece of paper taped to the locked gym door so since I was already in workout clothes I decided to go for a long walk then came home and did some strength training. Yay me. 

Goals for upcoming week:
  • 3 Zumba classes + at least 2 days strength training
  • Keep up the healthy eating and cooking dinners!

Thoughts:I'm proud of myself for getting back into the swing of healthy eating so quickly and already making progress. I know that 4 lbs in a week is a fluke and is likely water weight but it's good motivation anyway. I am looking forward to being back in the 100's when I step on the scale next week!


  1. Wooohoo! You are doing great! At this rate, you are going to lose weight faster than you thought you would. Congrats!

  2. Woo hoo, go Chickin!! Sorry Zumba got cancelled, but good for you for making the most of it anyways! And good job with the meal planning and cooking! Also, that pic makes me smile :)

  3. Congrats on the weight loss!! And the healthy cooking, I definitely struggle with finding and desire to make meals

  4. Congrats on the weight loss! It's definitely encouraging to see any weight come off even if it's just water weight to start with. It's definitely hard to cook and eat healthy, but in the end it makes a huge difference.


  5. Holy smokes Chickin, what an amazing start! Good for you for cooking, I hate it too!

  6. 4lbs in one week??? You go girl!

  7. Woot woot! That's amazing progress! I'm so impressed with/jealous of people who do Zumba classes because it looks like so much fun, but I'm too uncoordinated.

  8. Nice! 4 lbs is awesome :) Good job Chickin!
