I cheated a bit. I weighed in yesterday at 202. That's 2 pounds up from last weigh in. That was after Ella's christening weekend where we had guests all weekend (meaning breakfast of bacon, eggs, and toast for three mornings in a row). I think the only thing I drank all weekend was coffee, diet pop and wine! So I wasn't surprised at all when I was up yesterday. High sodium foods and no water = bloat. So I jump on the scale this morning after drinking a ton of water yesterday and eating lots of fruits and veggies and I was at 197! So I think I am going to count Tuesday's weigh in instead of Monday's since it is more of a true respresentation of my weight. And it makes me feel better than 202 :o)
My next goal I want to reach is 189 and it is only 8 lbs away! I am so happy that this maternity leave weight loss strategy is going so much better that the last time around. It took me over a year to lose 30lbs after Ava. I'm already at half of that and it has only been 5 weeks. Better late than never, right?
I just spent an hour walking around the pumpkin patch with a 15lb baby strapped to my chest. I'm hoping I burned a bunch of calories since I indulged in a pumpkin cookie made by a friend.
Breakfast - Source yogurt and slice of WW toast, pumpkin cookie
Lunch - Ava's leftover meatballs (the pumpkin patch was a last minute idea so i didn't have time to make a salad)
Dinner - a nice salad full of cucumber, green peppers, avacado and I'm going to throw in some cottage cheese and leftover ham from the weekend.
