Weigh-in Wednesday - Ups and Downs

180.3lbs this morning. Down half a pound from last week but still up 2lbs from 2 weeks ago. I'm disappointed, I'm not going to lie. I'm really up and down the last few weeks. I regained my focus and then I majorly fell off the wagon, for a week and then I got back on track this week.

In terms of exercise, as you know I completed my 2nd 6 Week Challenge on More Workouts and now I'm focusing on Gold's Cardio Gym (Boxing) on the Wii, some fitness DVD's and Wii Fit Plus. I'm also getting serious about my half marathon training. It's just over three months away so I need to get back on track with my running and follow my training plan.

I can't believe that February is almost finished. I'm on track for Fitness February, I've exercised everyday this month so far. We're going away this weekend (Thursday to Sunday) and I've already planned ahead to make sure I get exercising every day!

I did an exercise DVD yesterday for the first time since before we got the Wii in October and it was great! It was nice to do something different and to see how far I've come. I was able to do the entire workout properly without making any short cuts, plus added two extra sections for 50 minutes total. I can feel my muscles today, but it's all good. I know EA Sports Active really helped me with that because I could do the lunges, squats and all the exercises for that matter, correctly and I felt SO strong. That really gave me a boost, to see my progress in a different way, to feel it and not just worry about what the scale or the tape measure say. I felt good, and that was awesome!
Last but not least, check out the Bronze Medal I won over at the Shinking Jeans Olympics!! One for Wall Sit and Jumping Jacks! I was so excited to win!! :) It was a lot of fun to participate but I still can't get over the numbers some ladies put up for Hula Hoop!! CRAZY!
Well I have a TON of stuff to do before our trip so I hope everyone has a great week. Let me know how you did this week. What are the ups and downs you struggle with?


  1. You're doing wonderfully! as you get closer to goal the ups and downs come more regularly but you keep on going on. You're doing wonderful. I can't get the numbers on the hula hoops that others talk of or even my hubbie but I keep trying

  2. Keep your head up, you're doing great! I am thinking about switching to some DVDs for a change as well. The Wii is fun...but gets monotonous after a while.

  3. Awesome job on your medals Christine! Remember, muscle weighs more than fat. You are more than just a number girl!

  4. AWESOME!!! Keep up the great work! I am really trying to stay motivated. I've gone to the gym 4 x's since Friday, only skipping Sunday. :) Any tips on the eating portion? I can go to the gym, and workout...but my problem is eating healthy. :(

  5. You have not missed one workout! That is awesome :) Everyone falls off the wagon sometimes just hop back on. You have the half marathon you HAVE to be ready for so I know you will do it. Be nice to yourself you deserve lots of nice-ness!
    Make sure you do not get wrapped up in the numbers keep going off how you feel so you stay motivated.
    You are fabulous!!!!

  6. Thank you all so much for your input! I really do appreciate it! I'm going to catch up on all your blogs today!! :)
