Friday Weigh In + Five on Friday...

Sorry this post is so late. First, I slept until 11 and it was glorious. B is on vacation this week so I took today to sleep in while he got up with the babies (I might take tomorrow too). Then Blogger was giving me some serious issues and I almost gave up on posting at all today.

I'm down 1.2 lbs from last week. I'll take it. This puts me right at my DietBet goal, so I just need to hold on to it for another week. I mean, obviously I want to lose more anyway, but I can.not.gain!

Today is Double Day for T25 and I'm supposed to do Total Body Circuit (HATE) and Ab Intervals (meh). I'm still sick and don't want to workout at all, so I'm subbing Speed 1.0 for Total Body Circuit. I know the schedule is set up the way it is for a reason, but I'll for sure be half-assing it if I make myself do the workout that I hate, so I think this is the better decision.

is my favorite number? I'm struggling with 5 things since I just did 10 yesterday!

I often get lost in BuzzFeed and yesterday I found THIS article and I love it. American Eagle's lingerie line, Aerie, will no longer be touching up their models. All of these women still look amazing, bodies that I would love to have, but they are theirs. No more smoothing out the natural creases, lumps, and bumps that bodies, even fit bodies, have. We are constantly presented with airbrushed perfection that no one could ever achieve...ever. As someone who struggles with body-image issues, I really appreciate this "movement". Also, before anyone says it, all women are "real" women.

B and I are going to hang out with friends tomorrow evening and I know I'm going to struggle with not pigging out while I'm there. What's your best secret for staying under control in party-like food situations? I never struggled with it in the first year of my weight loss, but I sure as heck do now. Like I mentioned on #1, I can not gain, so I'm going to have to force myself to be good this weekend!

Happy weekend, y'all. I hope to be able to report that I'm feeling better and not 4 lbs up next week :)

  1. If your pigging out just once in awhile than my suggestion would be to work ur booty off at the gym the next day lol
    Or at home. Whatever works :)

  2. What I do is actually eat a TON of healthy food before I go out with friends or to someone's house so that I am seriously full when I get there. Makes it a lot easier and if I do end up eating some stuff that is at the party, it's often way less than i would have if I went there hungry. Ya know?

  3. I do the same as Jenny. If I know I am going out I will try to eat before and drink lots and lots of water it helps me! I am giving away a Starbucks Verismo Brewer on my blog. I would love if you would check it out.
