My progress for the week:
I'm up 2 pounds from last week's weigh in, which I anticipated. That 5 pound loss had to have been a fluke, but I'm still down a little over 3 pounds overall since the start of the challenge. I could have made wiser food choices a few times. Exercise this week was a lot more walking than usual since I've been out and about with the warmer weather. We also went roller skating Saturday night for about an hour!
She didn't exercise this past week, but is working on making a workout room that is all her own!
Beth let us know:
She is maintaining her same weight. She worked out HARD 4 days this week and her goal for next week is 5 days!
Beth (aka Biz) checked in:
She's had a hectic couple of weeks with Tony's cancer and surgery. She isn't too happy with her recent food choices and hasn't worked out in over a week. She has her food planned out for the next couple days, though.
Menu plan for the week:
Ratatouille Grilled Panini Recipe - Rachael Ray
Baked Crab Rangoon
breakfast for dinner
Tip of the week:
I recently saw a news article talking about the benefits of a portable desk pedal machine. I thought it was brilliant and they're relatively inexpensive, so I got one!! According to the article, dedicated pedallers can burn up to 500 calories a day, but the average is closer to about 20-30 minute pedaling stints, burning 180 calories. I'll take it!
(Ignore the dust and wires- under the desk shots aren't gonna be pretty!)
I only just got it Friday, but I've noticed myself using it a few times while in front of the computer over the weekend. It's cool to think something that used to be a sedentary act can now have the potential to burn calories! It was a little over $20 and through Amazon sellers you can get free shipping! It was a few twists of knobs to put it together, no tools required. Anybody with a desk job might consider getting one! It can double as an arm workout too, according to the instructions.
