Down 2.5 lbs!

Last week went great great! I followed my goals with counting my calories, eating at home during the week and exercising, so yesterday mornings weigh in, I was down 2.5lbs!

I'm being much more attentive with eating out as well (because we love going out for dinner on the weekends!) So Friday night my husband wanted to go for a lobster dinner. I skipped the rice that is came with and I also skipped dipping the lobster in the butter. So I saved some calories there! And still enjoyed this yummy lobster!

Yesterday morning we woke up to all this snow! So what a perfect day to try HOT YOGA! HA! Let me just say WOW! It was HOT!
It felt great! Although the truth is, it was a little intimidating with all the VERY fit women doing all the poses correctly and there I was full figured falling around and not being able to do the full 1.5 hours HA! I wore a tank top and yoga capri's I was soaked with sweat right through my bra! I'm not good with hydrating myself so of course I didnt drink enough water as I should have and that caused my day to be a little off with a massive headache. I also had killer lower back pain (oh boy!)

I will definitely be going again. I need to look at their schedule to find a shorter class, 1.5 hours was wayyy to much for this beginner!
This week we are planning our trip to San Francisco for February! I'm really excited! My husband and I have a tradition of going to buy a travel book of where we are going when we plan trips, so we did that yesterday. I know some of my followers live there or have visited so any suggestions you have just let me know! :)

Hope you are all having a great weekend. How are your weight loss goals coming along???

This weeks Goals I will follow:
*1500 Calories/day
* Tracking calories on Iphone "my fitness pal app"
*Drink lots of water everyday! A MUST!
* 3 bite rule on sweets or no sweets at all!!!
* 3 different workouts this week (Fitness DVD/Gazelle/Gym)


  1. yay, 2.5 lbs down, you're well on your way to the first 5!! hot yoga sounds tough, you're brave.
    this week didn't go that great for me as far as weight loss, i will try again next week though!!

  2. congrats on the 2.5 lbs! Eating right is hard work! But at least you can still enjoy tasty food...the lobster looks delicious!

  3. Congrats on the loss and the good choices! :-)

  4. Hello My dear! Thank you for following my blog and congrats on the 2.5 lbs! Keep up the good work. I just got back from my trip to San Francisco and just loved it. We booked a hotel on and ended up staying at The Powell Street Hotel and saved 40%. It was right in the smack middle of all the great shopping and down the street from Union Square. Oh yeah, they also have a free happy hour with complimentary beer and wine. As far as good food is concerned make sure to try Waterbar if your budget allows. They have some amazing dishes there and a great view of the Bay Bridge. I could go on for hours about SF! I hope you have a blast!

  5. Congratulations! 2.5 in a week is wonderful! Keep posting about what you're doing, it's so motivating. I need to get back on track!
