Week in Review

Since Chan was gone for a lot of last week she will be updating you soon. For now, Jenn and I will be posting about our week :). Here it is!

This has been a tough week for me and I struggled so much. It’s really hard for me to let you (and myself) down so this week I have decided to make a big change. I’ve decided that I am going to use my own damn advice and set some attainable and realistic goals!

Here is a list of things I have struggled with this week:

  • Overeatting/Snacking (mostly late at night)
  • Not working out
  • being lazy (on week nights)

Here is what I am going to do to correct those things:

Overeatting/Snacking: This week I am going to plan 2 days in advance. I am going to go through my cupboards tonight and make a plan. If I fill my day with high protein/high fiber foods I may be less tempted to snack at night. Also, if I plan out a snack after dinner and have 0 point foods cut up and readilly available I won’t be as tempted to grab the crap food and will  instead have berries or some chopped veggies. I am also going to not eat past 9pm this week unless it is a 0 point food. This week I am cracking down on that!

Not working out: I am also going to preplan this! I am going to try and do something 4 days this week with the option of an additional workout on either Sunday or Monday . Here is my plan:

Thursday: Yoga (in class)

Friday: Taebo DVD at home
Saturday: Yoga DVD at home
Tuesday: Zumba at Studio

Being Lazy: This one isn’t too bad as a lot of the time I have things going on during the week. This week if I find myself tempted to do nothing or find myself sitting on the couch I am either going to pull out my exercise ball and do a 10 minute mini workout or I am going to clean! Both get me activity points and they both get me off the couch!

This is a really long one but I needed this to help me plan! This week is going to be great and I am going to be successful!


This week was a harder week for me, I had a personal physical issue that limited my workout routine. I still managed to get active though, and I continued to track the food that I ate. I am feeling really motivated and ready to get more exercise now that I’m feeling better. I still managed to lose 1.4 pounds this week! Yay!

Sleeping patterns this week were really bad. Noah was getting two teeth at the same time, so we had really late nights and we napped at weird times of the day. I’m happy to say that my little guy now has 5 chompers! He is also getting really good at crawling, each day he gets faster and faster. I’m so proud of his progress.

I am happy to say that I managed to eat vegetables daily these past few weeks. Anyone who knows me, totally understands how hard this can be for me. I’m actually starting to enjoy it! My metabolism has also increased.

This blog is helping me tremendously, I feel like I not only need to do this for myself but for everyone else too, it is extremely motivational.

Thanks for reading!
Steph & Jenn
