Weekly Weigh-in #10

Another week, another weigh-in! Down another -.6, which isn't terrible considering last week's big loss. I'm averaging 1.5 pounds a week, which is OK with me. It was a bit of an odd week. Kev was out of town, but I was really tired all week. Cleo slept in the room with me and she's not always the quietest of animals. I'm guessing that's why I didn't get the greatest of sleeps.

So, when I started back on Jenny 10 weeks ago, I posted that I wanted to get back to my original JC goal of 160. Well, the more I thought about it, the more I felt like I wanted more. The last time i was just tired of everything, mainly because it took me something like 2 months to lose the last 5 pounds. Since it was such a big accomplishment, I stopped. For a while the next year I went back to try and lose 10 more, but I wasn't committed. But I still wanted to get to 150. For a while I've had a number in my head of what I want the final goal to be. I told my JC consultant on Saturday what I wanted but I wasn't sure. She said we were going for it. That's the new number and we're going to hit it. 

Let's go.

Saturday - I had a hair appointment in the morning and I just didn't go afterwards.
Sunday - Ran 30 min on the treadmill then Body Pump
Monday - Chiropractor
Tuesday - Ran 50ish minutes
Wednesday - nada
Thursday - Body Pump
Friday - Went to the gym and I just wasn't feeling it. So I left. You just have those days every now and then.

What I'm Eating This Week

There's a Kroger right next door to the Jenny Center and most mornings I head over there afterwards. it's really convenient and they have pretty good prices on produce. A pound of cherries was $2.99 the last 2 weeks and grapes $1.49lb. :) Well, I've passed this popcorn a few times and I finally bought some. Kev and I both LOVE it. LOVE. 3 cups is 130 calories which is in line for my Jenny snack.


I don't see a huge difference between this week and last and I'm still not quite happy with most of my old pants. Last Spring, I know I was able to wear certain pants and right now they button uncomfortably which makes me super salty. That tells me I gained more than 15 pounds in the last year, which is insane. There's no reason for me to gain 15 pounds in a year. I attribute some of that to stress, some to being injured for several months and having to go to PT. The rest is just from eating too much. I've never gained that much weight that quickly. 

I ate out 3 times last week, which is more than usual, but I don't think it was too too bad.
Saturday - Veggie sub from subway with no dressing
Sunday - Brunch, I had a Salmon Salad with no dressing. I counted it as lunch then ate my breakfast muffin in the afternoon
Monday - Kev and I went out before he left and we went to the 42nd Street Oyster bar. We had bacon wrapped scallops for an appetizer, (OMG) then I had crab legs with a little bit of butter, steamed veggies as a side and 2 hush puppies. It was super tasty. Thankfully I had the rest of the week to work it off.

That was my week! Here's to another good one!

  1. I have to try that skinny popcorn - love popcorn so much! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

    1. It's soooo good! I only see it at Kroger, but I'm sure they have it other places as well.

  2. WHAT??? that popcorn - chocolate covered???? I cant even imagine.
    Popcorn is something I've never bought from the store. It's so easy to just buy a big jar of kernels & put in a paper bag & put in the microwave. you can season how you want that way :)

    1. It's cocoa "dusted" and pretty tasty! I have kernels in the pantry too and I really should pop them. but this I couldn't pass up!

  3. Congrats on the loss!!!! I love popcorn, that one looks so good!!! I have been picking up cherries and grapes pretty much every week at the store lately too!!! They are just too good!! And you have to take advantage of the cherries while you can!

    1. I KNOW! I get excited when cherries aren't $7.99 a pound, so I have to grab them while I can!

  4. i had popcorn on saturday at my daughter's party (we went to the theaters) and OMG IT WAS SO GOOD. i hardly eat that stuff but man, was i looking forward to it!

    1. I don't eat a ton of popcorn, but it's one of the JC snacks, so I've been having it more often. They have Kettle and white cheddar and i thought chocolate would be a good change. It was!

  5. How did I not know that Skinny Pop made a chocolate version?! Skinny Pop is my very favorite so I can only imagine how amazing the dusted chocolate version is! Adding this to my grocery list for next week!

    1. I've only ever seen it at Kroger, but it's definitely worth hunting down!

  6. Way to go girl!! I love that skinny pop! Your "cheat meals" sound way healthier than most of my every day meals :)
