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 Online 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 February 12th through February 25th, 2012

I was really good the first week and pretty lazy the second week as far as exercise goes.  BUT, I lost weight!  Yay!  Here were my results.

Weight Watchers

I was getting 29 food points a day (now 26) 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 February 12 – February 18, 2012:

Sunday – 26 points
Monday – 36 points
Tuesday – 26 points
Wednesday – 34 points
Thursday – 26 points
Friday – 42 points
Saturday – 31 points

Total Weekly Points Used: 221 Points – WOOT!!!

Week of February 19 – February 25, 2012:

Sunday – 35 points
Monday – 36 points
Tuesday – 30 points
Wednesday – 26 points
Thursday – 34 points
Friday – 33 points
Saturday – 35 points

Total Weekly Points Used: 229 Points – Yay again!

I did it!!!  I am back on the Weight Watcher Points Plus Program 100%!!!  🙂

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 February 12 – February 18, 2012:

Sunday – Nope
Monday – Nope
Tuesday – Racquetball for 50 minutes
Wednesday – Nope
Thursday – Racquetball for 60 minutes
Friday – Nope
Saturday – Racquetball for 40 minutes

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

Week of February 19 – February 25, 2012:

Sunday – Nope
Monday – Nope
Tuesday – Nope
Wednesday – Nope
Thursday – Nope
Friday – Nope
Saturday – Nope

Total Weekly Times at the Gym: 0 times – Boogers.  Yeah, I sucked.

One out of two isn’t bad but I will never hit my goal of exercising 150 times this year if I don’t pick up the pace!!!

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.
  • 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, weighed 156.8 pounds last week, and now…I am at 153.2!!!  Yay, 3 month low!  I promised you a loss of at least 2 pounds over the last two weeks in my last update, and I am down 3.6 pounds!!!  This accountability thing really works!!!

That said, my next update will have me down at least 2 more pounds – so 151.2 or less.  Let’s see if peer pressure can work its magic again.  😉

How did you do on your fitness goals?
