Spring Fling Weigh-In, Week 3 – 03/17/10

Groovy Girls Gettin' Going' button

This week: -3 lbs (-4 lbs since last blog post)
Spring Fling Challenge: -10 lbs (!!)
Overall: -25 lbs

w00t! I earned back the 25 lb badge!! Yay me!

This has been a pretty good week…I’ve gotten on the stationary bike several times this week, though I have given up shredding. As it turns out, the 30-day shred just makes me hate exercise. So, a new goal is to come up with a weight-training plan/routine that I can do that will help both with my weight-loss goals and with my biking goals.

Eating-wise I’m doing okay. I’m still keeping track of my eating and calories with FatSecret (and their app on my Droid). I only went over my calories one day this week; otherwise, I’ve been staying well below my calories for the day. I think the next thing to work on is getting healthier things in my diet. I’ve been doing some of that already – I’ve been having far more salads that previously. However, I always struggle getting fruit into my life. Since spring and summer are coming, this will get easier – I love berries. Fall and winter fruits are just not my thing, so I’ll have to work on that.

    great job on the loss!! 🙂 the encouraging thing i found about trading low calorie crap for truly healthy food is that it fills you up and makes eating low calorie easier. good luck!

    Fantastic job on the loss! I agree on the Shred — if you hate it, don’t do it. No sense teaching yourself to hate exercise. Much better to find something you enjoy! Keep up the great job!
