Wow! I'm 2.2 lbs down this week. I have to say I wasn't expecting that. I had a lot of long early morning meetings this week, which means unlimited free doughnuts and cookies. And, while I stayed under my daily calorie limit every day- this week included 7 doughnuts and 6 cookies. I definitely got more sugar than I needed, but I did make sure to get at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies every day, so I guess I didn't do much harm. On the plus side, I am now only 0.1lbs away from a healthy BMI. So, hopefully I'll reach that next week. Awesome!

Exercise wasn't great this week either. I played 3 tennis matches, and went to 1 zumba class. I was planning to get more swims in this week, but it didn't happen. I've been spending so much time watching Olympic swimming, I didn't have time to make it to the pool myself (ironic?). I need to step it up this week. And, my women's weight training program is starting, so it shouldn't be hard. Weight lifting, here I come!


  1. We lost the same amount this week! It is great that you were able to stay on track for the rest of the day after the early morning sweets. Did you see the article about those dieters that ate sweets for breakfast lost more weight and for a longer period of time than those that didn't have any sweets for breakfast? It was an interesting read and made sense.

  2. Interesting, I haven't seen the article. But, anything that suggests that morning doughnuts are helpful for weight loss sounds good to me. ;-)
