As I told you all towards the end of November 2011, I am posting updates twice a month here to keep me accountable for the $1200 a year for fitness that we are spending on Weight Watchers and our gym memberships. Yep, I am using you as my accountability partners whether you signed up for it or not, hahaha. I’m posting on the weekday closest to the 15th and last day of each month. Here is how I did for the past couple of weeks.

My Update for January 29th through February 11th, 2012

I was a little better than the two weeks before.  I wasn’t perfect but I am getting back into the habit of logging all of my food points into Weight Watchers and Mr. BFS and I are slowly hitting the gym more as well.  Here were my results.

Weight Watchers

I was getting 29 food points a day and 49 weekly points to use as I wished on food each week, so 252 total points. So, I am aiming for 250 food points or less a week from here on out. I have to use a minimum of 182 or I’d be physically starving my body – that wouldn’t be a healthy diet at all. Let’s see how I did:

Week of January 29 – February 4, 2012:

Sunday – 49 points
Monday – 31 points
Tuesday – 26 points
Wednesday – 47 points
Thursday – 27 points
Friday – 35 points
Saturday – 38 points

Total Weekly Points Used: 253 Points – Oops

Week of February 5 – February 11, 2012:

Sunday – 56 points (Superbowl)
Monday – 31 points
Tuesday – 33 points
Wednesday – 38 points
Thursday – 26 points
Friday – 43 points
Saturday – 45 points

Total Weekly Points Used: 272 Points – Crap!

I am happy I am tracking my points again, but I do need to dig in again to hit 250 points or less every week.

Gym Attendance

I set the goal to go to the gym at least 3 times a week when we signed up. I also have a bowling league Thursday nights and walk the neighborhood once in a while as well, but this is just about my gym attendance. Let’s see how I did.

Week of January 29 – February 4, 2012:

Sunday – Nope
Monday – Racquetball for 60 minutes
Tuesday – Nope
Wednesday – Racquetball for 45 minutes
Thursday – Nope
Friday – Racquetball for 60 minutes
Saturday – Nope

Total Weekly Times at the Gym: 3 times – Yay!

Week of February 5 – February 11, 2012:

Sunday – Nope
Monday – Nope
Tuesday – Nope
Wednesday – Treadmill for 40 minutes
Thursday – Nope
Friday – Nope
Saturday – Nope

Total Weekly Times at the Gym: 1 time – Awww, poop.

One out of two isn’t bad bud I now need to pick up the pace to hit my goal to exercise at least 150 times this year.

Weight Goals

Other than the diet and exercise goals mentioned above, here are some weight goals for 2012:

  • Weigh 145 pounds by April 9th, 2012 for the 10-pound Challenge I joined.  I am still at 156.8, so obviously, I am not there yet…
  • Weigh 135 pounds by December 31st, 2012.

I started at 155.6 pounds on November 28, 2011, was up to 159 after the holidays, have been at the low of 154 since then, and am currently weighing in at 156.8 pounds…again.  I am dead-on where I was 2 weeks ago. Not cool. My next update will have me down at least 2 pounds.  You can count on it.

How did you do on your fitness goals?
