Weigh In Wednesday! 1/19/2011

It is that day again!  Some times the week seems to go by really quickly!  As you could tell from my last post I jammed a lot of activity in to last weekend.  I really should have squeezed more exercise in but that's life and I need to move on. 
I had another loss this week - only 0.8, but it's a loss.  Or at least that is what I keep telling myself.  I was not happy about it, but there is nothing I can do about it now, it's done and I have to move on.  If I was being completely honest with myself, I would tell myself that my workouts were probably what did me in this week.  I had a couple of days that I had great intentions and life really steam rolled me.  I recognize that this is going to happen but I really want to minimize the frequency if possible. 

A very sweaty Future PFG!

The snow put a damper on my running outside last week - I am hoping to get a couple of runs in this week - for sure Saturday morning at the Running Room, but would like to get at least one or two in on my own as well.  The cold does not bother me as much as the snow does - as odd as that may sound.  I can dress warm for the cold, but that day I ran in the fresh snow was rough - guess I need some yak-trax! 

I started this new week off with a great work out with Jillian.  When I am feeling in need of a gut check, I can throw in a Jillian DVD and she will kick my rear end!  My triceps are still sore from my workout last night - I am telling you that circuit training is awesome!  I snapped a pic in all of my sweaty glory last night just because I felt so good after that I had to take a snapshot so I can have a visual reminder of how good it feels!

Meatloaf with turkey bacon - pre-baking

I made an awesome dinner tonight.  The other day Sarah at posted a meatloaf recipe from PioneerWoman that she had modified to make more WW friendly.  It was so good!  I used really lean ground beef and turkey bacon - Rob LOVED it!  In fact, both girls ate it too - which is really something!  This recipe will definitely make our lineup going forward.  Thanks for the recipe Sarah! 

 My mom and I are taking the girls to JCPenney for pictures on Friday.  Zoe turned 3 recently and Ava is now almost 19 months so it's that time.  If you don't know me well you are not aware of my need to have pictures taken of my girls at every milestone.  I have so many pictures in my house, we are running out of wall space - it's an illness!  I will update the blog over the weekend with some previews from that shoot - please cross your fingers for us - the girls are at that age when they are usually less than cooperative so I need all of the luck I can get my hands on! 

Have a great week friends!  Oh, my total weight loss to date is 39.2 pounds - since I came up short this week my new goal is to break through that 40 pound mark next week!  I WILL DO IT! 

Be well!

Glad you loved it as much as I do. If you used turkey bacon the calories/fat are even less woo hoo!
