Weigh-In Day, Week 17

on May 18, 2013

Hey! It’s me. I’m here. Boy summer came in a hurry, eh? Just two weeks ago the kids could just barely get on the swing set through melting snow and now I’m getting ready to plant the garden! Strawberries and flower beds got planted yesterday. We’re going to try a ┬ánew project this year by laying plastic over the garden and then planting through holes in the plastic. This is with high hopes to reduce weeds to the point where I can actually keep them controlled this summer. This will be my first summer on the farm with 2 running children. Last year, one was somewhat old enough to play by herself while I worked outside and the other was still baby enough to either sleep most of the day or be content in the playpen outside. This year, well, let’s just say “baby” is already giving me a run for my money, I’m going to need all the short-cuts I can take with the outdoor work this summer. Now, if only one of my nieces from Ontario felt like taking a summer trip to Saskatchewan and being my live-in nanny/helper…I might even pay ya…


Now to the results, I have been very good with my eating this week, slacking a little in the workout department as far as following a program goes but I’ve been outside working a lot which is still activity and I have been horrible at tracking this week. Must do better and not get out of that habit over the summer! I lost 1.5 lb from last week bring me back down to 236.5 and I have lost an INCH AND A HALF around my arm! Woohoo! My arms have always been one of my “most hated things about myself” and I am happy to notice they are finally shrinking. I also lost 1/2 inch around both calf and thigh. Waist and hip didn’t seem to lose this week but that’s ok, they’ve been the only place changing for a while now so I’m glad to see the weight is coming off other parts of my body too.

OK, kids are anxious to get outside and the work list for today grows longer not shorter so off I go. Have a great week my friends and make some healthy choices!
