New Year challenge: no more cheating

SONY DSC SONY DSCCurrent weight: 163/ goal weight: 130

I was feeling pretty confident with myself after I lost 5 lbs in just one week. So of course, when we were visiting with family, I decided to take a break from recording every bite I took. When I weighed myself, I was a little surprised to discover that I gained two pounds IN ONE DAY.

Not only that, but the Wii fit rubbed it in by blasting my weight increase on the screen. It did not help that I tried on my old jeans just to see if I could possibly start packing up my maternity clothes and learned that that is not happening anytime soon.

fitnessLuckily, I went on Pinterest and found some inspiration. Here are a few workouts I’m going to try out this week:

5 Exercises that burn 200 calories in under 3 minutes

Whole bunch of workouts

Calorie blasting yoga moves

I am one of those people who need to have music blaring at all times. I can’t do anything without some background music. Needless to say (but I’m going to anyway), I love to hear new music or a new mix I wouldn’t have thought of, so I was pumped to find this “Clean Slate” mix on one of my favorite blogs, Design Sponge.

Natural pancakes: all you need is 1 banana and 2 eggs!

Weight Watchers yummy cheese soup

Weight Watchers flautas

10 Weight Watchers entrees

Zucchini Lasagna

Lumberjackie soup

I’ll be testing these workouts and recipes to see what works best for me and will be sure to document my research! This could be the best homework I’ve ever had…
