It’s been a while since I have talked about weight loss. If you didn’t know, I am trying to get rid of the weight I put on after stopping competitive swimming. I’m talking a good 15-20 pounds. I haven’t been super motivated, but the summer approaching and the wedding looming in the future, I have started to get my head in the game. I have continued my weekly Wednesday weigh-ins that I started during Lent, and I have some good news to share!
Starting weight (2/13/13): 154.8
Yesterday’s weight (5/15/13): 147.8
Change in weight: –7 pounds
Cue happy dance:
That, my friends, is progress! And that was also after going out to dinner the night before. I kept fluctuating around 148.5, but I finally busted into the 147. Not a huge difference, but a super motivating barrier.
Weight loss is a funny thing. Here are my thoughts on my weight loss mindset:
- The more I lose, the more motivated it am to eat well and work out.
- If I gain at all in my weekly weigh-in, I get sad and eat.
Basically, when things go well, I am confident and motivated. When things aren’t happening, I get depressed and mess it all up.

Here’s this week’s workout plan and how I’ve done. I’ve been semi-following the Tone-It-Up summer workouts.
Monday: 3 mile run
Tuesday: 45 minute cycle on my trainer, 2 rounds of Sunkissed Abs
Wednesday: 4.1 mile interval workout, 2 rounds of Bridal Babe workout (20 reps each)
Thursday: 45 minute swim, 3 rounds of Tone up Your Thighs workout
Friday: 45 minute swim, Sunset routine
Sunday: Color Run DC 5k
So far, so good! I am off to the pool now, so I should definitely get that in!
Things are looking up…now it’s time to keep the ball rolling!!
What is one great thing in your life right now?
