It's Not So Easy Anymore

Weigh-In: 167.2

I don't have a picture of the scale so you're going to have to take my word for it. It read 167.2 when I first stepped on, and then when I picked up my camera it spiked up to 168.4 and I couldn't get the number to go back down. If you really want to see what a picture of 168.4 looks like, you can look at last week's weigh-in.

Previous weigh-ins:

3/16/11: 168.4
2/16/11: 172.2
2/9/11: 172.6

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little frustrated with my number this morning. I remember when losing weight was so, dare I say it, easy.  One time last year, after putting on a few holiday pounds, I stuck to my calorie budget perfectly for a week and dropped 10 lbs! 10 lbs in a week?! That's Biggest Loser weight loss right there! Now I feel like I have to work twice as hard to lose half as much weight.

However, I know that this is what comes with the territory of getting smaller and having less weight to lose, and I'm going to look at the whole "getting smaller" thing as the bright side. I also know that I went over my calorie limit twice last week (by a LOT) and so that is definately probably contributing to my not-so-awesome number this morning.

Obviously, I am not going to let this ruin my day, or week for that matter. After a little pep talk with myself this morning about all of the improvements I can make over the next week, I hit the gym for a major sweat sesh. The name of the game was total body, and that's exactly what I did.

  • Treadmill: 5 minutes at 7.0
  • Incline Dumbbell Press superset with Tricep Pressdown: 3 sets x 20 reps
  • Treadmill: 5 minutes at 6.6
  • Bicep Curl and Plie Squat: I did one set of 15 reps of each variation of this Fitnessista move
  • Treadmill: 5 minutes at 6.4
  • Barbell Row superset with Overhead Presses: 3 sets x 12 reps
  • Treadmill: 5 minutes at 6.2

I was a hot sweaty mess by the time I was done. It was awesome.

Time to enjoy this delicious ham and spinach omelette I just cooked up and get ready for lab.

Have a fabulous Wednesday, friends!

*FYI: I have added a new page at the top with all of my weigh-ins since I started losing weight.*


  1. I love that workout! At my gym, the weights and treadmills are on different levels, or else I would be all over that. Keep it up though! Youre doing awesome, and its normal to hit a plateau, I bet limiting the PB will help. Same with those awesome workouts!

  2. I'm with ya, girly - i'm stuck at that weight too! Dropping the first 15 was easy - and now it seems i can't lose one measly pound for the life of me!

  3. I too remember the days when it was easy to lose the weight and nowadays it just get stuck. Stuck and it's so hard to lose the pounds :(

  4. Your doing awesome girl. Your body is bound to slow things up a bit. Being HEALTHY is all you need to focus on. Keep eating well and working hard, youll get there :)
