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 February 26th through March 7th, 2012

I was really good about my points but SUCKED with my exercise as we got busy, so I actually gained a little – grrrr.

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 26 – March 3, 2012:

Sunday – 40 points
Monday – 26 points
Tuesday – 33 points
Wednesday – 32 points
Thursday – 30 points
Friday – 30 points
Saturday – 43 points

Total Weekly Points Used: 234 Points – WOOT!!!

Week of March 4 – March 10, 2012:

Sunday – 34 points
Monday – 28 points
Tuesday – 33 points
Wednesday – 28 points
Thursday – 26 points
Friday – 35 points
Saturday – 63 points (it was a Cajun themed party…it was soooo good!)

Total Weekly Points Used: 247 Points – Yay again!

I did it again! And I stepped away from the party food on purpose with you all in mind.  I was very proud of myself.  Thank you all! 

I am back on the Weight Watcher Points Plus Program…just need to get back to the gym.

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 26 – March 3, 2012:

Sunday – Nope
Monday – Nope
Tuesday – Walk/jog for 40 minutes on treadmill
Wednesday – Nope
Thursday – Nope
Friday – Nope
Saturday – Nope

Total Weekly Times at the Gym: 1 time.  Boogers.

Week of March 4 – March 10, 2012:

Sunday – Nope
Monday – Nope
Tuesday – Nope
Wednesday – Nope
Thursday – Nope
Friday – Nope
Saturday – Nope (but I did walk around neighborhoods for 3 hours)

Total Weekly Times at the Gym: 0 times – Boogers again.

CRAP!!!  That is all.

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, but was up to 159 after the holidays.  Then I was at 154 sometime in January, a little more than 156 a month ago, and weighed 153.2 pounds 2 weeks ago.  And now…I am at 154.8!  Crap.  I promised you a loss of at least 2 pounds over the next two weeks in my last update, and I am up 1.6 pounds instead!  Yuck.

That said, I only have about a month left for the 10 pound challenge, so my next update will have me down at least 4 more pounds – so 150.8 or less.  That should leave me 2 more weeks for the last 4-5 pounds…we’ll see.  I have hikes planned while we are out of town this coming weekend, but I am going to have to really dig in if I am going to hit any goals!

How did you do on your fitness goals?
