Weigh in week 7

I lost 2 pounds again this week! As much as I would like to see a significant change like a 4 or 5 pound loss in one week, I know that slow and steady is really the way to take it off and keep it off. 🙂 I’ve read up on some of these quick lose diets, the cookie diet, ha ha! The grapefruit diet, the cabbage soup diet. They all promise quick weight loss, like 10 to 15 lbs in a week or 12 days! The thing is though, you just can’t lose fat that quickly, and the water weight will come right back on as soon as you’re not doing the “diet.” So I’m going to be content with seeing slow progress and just keep reminding myself that ultimately I’ll get to where I want to be!

Working out this week I did INSANITY Mon and Tues. I went for a 2 mile jog/walk on Wed and Thurs. My Thurs jog actually felt really good!! I kind of felt like I found my “groove” and just kept going. 🙂 However, Friday came along, actually Thurs night is when the coughing started getting bad and by the next morning I was out for the count. Ugh!! We’ve all been battling this plague or whatever it is. Qade’s been pretty lethargic, but is still handling it like a trooper. Ella’s temp was concerning us quite a bit for a little while, but she seems to be doing much better! Stu and I are slowly recovering, and hopefully with one more day of resting as much as possible we’ll have this thing licked. Myles hasn’t come down with it yet, and we’re hoping it stays that way.

So there’s not any working out happening this weekend, but maybe by Monday I’ll be back into the swing of things. I’m not going to push it though cause this illness is awful!
