My week 1 story

I did my new exercise DVD Mon - Fri, I walked up a huge hill with my 26 lb kid on my back (in her new, albeit used, backpack baby carrier) on Sat and I rode a bike pulling a trailer with my kid in it on Sunday.  Whew!  7 days of exercise.

My eating, however, was a different story.  I joined Weight Watchers on-line on day one.  Hated the site.  Could not find my way around.  Longed for my hand written journal and food tracker.  Gave up.

I did, however, watch what I ate and was very conscious of my choices.  Until Sunday, that is, when I ate yummy mac & chz and a small piece of carrot cake.  Additionally, I did not cut out wine, just tried to reduce my consumption.  I increased my water intake.

So, I lost a couple of pounds last week and am pleased with my success, but know that a better plan would result in better results.

How was your week?


  1. Great workouts, Margo! Especially the 26-lb. precious weight in the backpack.

    I lost 7 pounds, but it was mostly holiday excess, and too fast to be "real." However, I'm elated, of course. I'm not at the gym until my chest cold goes, but my food is h-a-n-d-l-e-d. No wine, no desserts, no bad cravings so far. Hooray!

  2. Wow Jan...awesome!
    I am having motivation problems but will come around soon. This blog is a wonderful tool! Thanks for putting it out there for all of us!
