Weekly Weigh-In 2/15/09

My weigh-in wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be today. I was only up 0.4 lb, which is very easily overcome. Why am I so chipper about this result? Well, you see, I spent the hour or so before I went to the meeting writing out my meal plan for the upcoming week:

(No, I didn’t get quite finished with Saturday.)

I know that one of the reasons I’ve been toying around with the same two or three pounds for the last month is because I’ve been “winging it.” And I’m almost never successful when I do that. When I start the week with a planned-out menu, even when things come up and I have to change plans at the last minute, I’m 99% more successful at having a weight loss at the end of that week than if I just leave it all up to eating whatever I feel like eating at the moment I decide I’m hungry.

So that’s the plan for this week—that and to get some exercise. I know I say that every week, and every week I haven’t followed through on that. But even though I’ve been losing weight, I know I’ve also been losing fitness, so I have to get back to some kind of regular activity in my life.

What will you do this week to be more healthy?

    Good for you, getting back on track! I’m in the same boat, exercise-wise. I haven’t been to the gym since before Xmas! So that’s what I’m doing this week. Getting back to the gym at least 3x.

    Good luck with the meal plan! Blackberries sound good for dessert! I might get some berries from the grocery this week and join you 🙂

    I’m going to add some light weight training this week. I’ve been doing walk videos for the last 5 weeks and I already feel stronger and more energetic. Yes!

    Thanks for reminding me, Mary—I need to do my walking DVD this afternoon. I haven’t done it since Monday! And since it’ll be a few hours before my eyes go back to normal (still dilated from my eye exam this afternoon), that might be a great thing to do in the meantime before I can get back to editing.
