Last month, I mentioned that I was joining Weight Watchers to help me lose the baby weight. I wanted to check in and give a little update. I joined and go to regular weekly meetings, which I’ve found have been great for keeping me accountable.
A couple years ago, I was a WW member and lost nearly 30 pounds, and was determined to do it again this time around since I knew it worked for me before. I’d say that my goal would be to lose 30 pounds yet again…and I’m on my way!
As of now at about a month or 5 weeks in, I’ve lost 8.8 pounds (and surpassed over 5% of my body weight.) YEE-HAW!
All I can say is thank goodness for pumping! That gets me an extra 14 points to my daily total, which has been a great help to ensure I’m not hungry and can maintain my supply. I’ve also been working out regularly…I typically do T25 workouts during the week (with some weight exercises for arms added in) while Bryce is napping or watching/cheering me on, and then run on the weekends when T is around to care for Bryce. I feel like I’ve found my groove, although the T25 workouts are getting a to be repetitive to me. I might be looking to do the “Beta” level or try out that P90X3 that has been staring at me for several months…
Any other recommendations for shorter but effective workouts I should try at home?
On the food front, I’ve compiled some great tips, tricks and recipes that I’ve been using along the way:
-This Hungry Girl smoothie is delicious and packed with protein. All the yums…
-These freezer meals are healthy and oh so easy to make for dinners! Best instructions/shopping list, etc. that I’ve seen after browsing tons on good ol Pinterest…
-This old fashioned oatmeal hack is a real time saver.
-This blogger has some good for you snacks that are WW approved!
-Can’t get enough zoodles. This recipe (and every other from Skinnytaste) are on my list. All her recipes have WW points figured out for you!
-I have an affinity for all things Pioneer Woman. Just made this Pasta Primavera loaded with fresh veggies. Divine!
