Weigh-In ... Chocolate & A New Love

Today's Weight: 186.0
Loss/Gain: -1.0 lb
Total Loss So Far: -45 lbs

What a good, busy week I've had.

I'm glad to be down after a week of chocolate indulgences. I have journaled every one, but there were more than usual this week. Amazingly I didn't do too shabby with my calorie intake daily, even with chocolate, and that is a step forward. I can do better, so I plan to this coming week.

I've stepped up my exercise to 45 minutes or more. Here's what I accomplished since my last weigh-in:
Sat - 30 mins on bike and 30 mins on elliptical
Sun - None
Mon - 30 minutes jogging and 20 mins on bike
Tues - 50 minute 4-Mile Fast Walk DVD by Leslie Sansone
Wed - none
Thurs - 45 min 3 Fast Miles DVD by Leslie Sansone (at 5:45 am because I had to work - GO ME!!!!)
Today - This morning hubby and I went to gym after dropping off son and I have already doen 30 mins jogging on treadmill and 30 mins walking random hills routine on treadmill at 3.8/4.0 mph intervals. I was one sweaty girl after that.

So, I'm pleased with my exercise for the week. I'm shooting to hit 45-60 minutes of exercise daily. I know it's vital to my success and it helped this week - especially with chocolate in my blood all week. LOL

Oh, and I have to share something new I've fallen in love with (can you tell I have time to blog today?? I've been wanting to tell you for a few days now....) BLUEBERRIES!!!!

I see Lori eat them all the time and thought I should give them a try. I LOVE THEM. I even had my son try them and he liked them as well. mmm....they've been added to my fruit with lunch or snacks now.

Well, I must go. I'm writing on an endorphin high, so I'm feeling very happy right now, but my housework does call. So, I'm off to make my house look all fresh and clean again so I can enjoy my weekend.

Have a great Friday everyone!! :)


  1. Interesting, I never used to care for blueberries, now I love them! Nice on the exercise!

  2. Congratulations on the loss!

    You've never had straight up blueberries before? I adore these (as you know).

  3. Yeah for the loss and down 45 lbs!

    I've been spending a fortune on blueberries this winter - we usually eat a ton of them during the summer or go pick them, but since they are so good for you, I've been splurging on the $5 a pint.

    Horray for all the exercise!

  4. Congratulations on your loss this week! Well done on being in the 180's! I started my journey at 189lbs - whenever anyone reaches it themselves, it helps me understand where approx they are (in terms of weight) yanno? You are doing very well! Consistent.

  5. I am also in awe of you not having straight up, fresh blueberries!! Sorry that you have been missing out! There is a farm here that we can get them from.... divine! A couple years, I'd buy like 10 lbs when they came in season and then I'd freeze them so I could have them year round!! YUM!! BTW - we just had some delicious ones on sale here and I made some awesome (healthy!) muffins. I will forward you the recipe in an email. It is actually a recipe that my Aunt Nancy put together! SO good! Later girl!!! And...keep pounding away those pounds...you go! :) luv ya!!

  6. It's refreshing to see that you also take rest days for your muscles to recover. Good for you.
