Some healthy progress!

December 6th, 2010 at 09:18 am

Last week was rather iffy in the healthy eating department. Overall healthy meals with enough decadence mixed in that I was expecting no weight loss and wouldn't have been surprised by a small gain.

On the other hands, a couple of the workouts were more intense than the 10-minute ones I'd been doing in past weeks. Probably more like 20 to 30 minutes each on about four of them.

Apparently that was enough to make up for the bad food moments! I was down 1.4 lbs. according to the Wii Fit balance board.

I don't know my exact pre-pregnancy weight since I wasn't in a period of weighing myself regularly, but I estimate I was between 140 and 145, since that's where I'd been hovering. Now I'm 154, 9 lbs. more than my highest estimate. I would love to get to 145 before AA's first birthday in March! But even if I don't, just being within 10 lbs. of my possible pre-pregnancy weight is a great feeling.

I at least would love to hold steady through the decadent holiday season. Working out seems to be the key! We've got a mix of videos from Netflix, the fitness channel and free on-demand, so we're getting a bit of variety and aren't getting bored yet. My favorites are the Gilad programs from the fitness channel. They're evil, but he's kind of goofy and so it helps take my mind off how hard I'm working. Smile

    I used to workout with Gilad years ago. Congratulations on your weight loss. Keep it up. We are getting a Wii for Christmas. Which workouts do you like with it?

    We pretty much only use the Wii Fit for weighing in once a week. Some of the exercises are really fun, and others feel like they give you a bit of a workout (and a lot of them are very good for concentrating on balance). But for sweaty, strength-building stuff, we use Netflix via Wii or just use programs on TV.

    I got the Jillian Michaels Wii game thinking it would be more strenuous than the Wii Fit stuff, but it was also really frustrating and not responsive to the remotes. So we only used it once.
