Slim Down Saturdays - February 8th

It’s a lazy, rainy Saturday here in California.  I can’t complain since we desperately needed the rain.  It gives me an excuse to take it easy and spend sometime catching up on school work and wedding planning.  I am linking up with Gina from Third Grade Tidbits for Slim Down Saturdays. This accountability has really helped me in my journey, so I highly recommend linking up if you haven’t already.

Ultimate goal: I am on track to meet by weight loss goal by my April wedding.  Now I am focusing on toning up for the big day.
Gain/Loss for the week: I guess six days at the gym really paid off this week.  I’ll take a pound loss a week any day.
Total since starting: With 9.2 pounds lost, the tens place has changed. I try not to get wrapped up in a number, but I know the weight that I feel healthy and comfortable at, and I’m almost there. 
Positives form the week: I have fallen in love with cycling again.  This past week, I attended two cycling classes (including a 6 A.M. class) and cycled on my own 3 other days.  I was able to make it to the gym every day but Tuesday this week and began the 31-Day challenges for arms, abs, and legs.
Something to do better: The arms challenge involves push-ups and I’ve been doing “girl” push ups.  I would love to be able to do full push ups, so that will be something I work on doing better this week.
Goal for next week: My goal is to stay focused on healthy eating and exercising even with all the craziness of Valentine’s Day.  I’m not a huge candy fan, but with rain on the forecast….my stress level is definitely high.  I know California needs the rain, but I could do without crazy-hyper students.  My fiancé and I are also going away next weekend, so I will need all my willpower to avoid overindulging during our mini-vacation.
One word: “Love”: With Valentines Day on the horizon, I can’t help but think about love this week.  My love list includes my fiancé, my family, my dogs, my students, and I can’t forget myself.  I feel so much better about myself since starting to eat healthy and exercise in January.


  1. Yay! You are almost there! I do girl pushups too! I can do like 2 or 3 real ones haha. Someday! Keep it up!
