Healthy Mama Link-up {Week 3}

Welcome to week 3 of the Healthy Mama Link-up! Today I’ve got a little progress report on how things are going for me.  Please feel free to link-up or leave a comment to share how you’re doing too!


This past week was not so great food-wise.  I held it together until the weekend, fell off the wagon all weekend, then got back on on Monday.  I’m focused during the week but on the weekends I need to tighten things up.  It’s like I get to Friday and instantly want to let loose.  This week I’m going to try to be good- Still a little relaxed on the weekend, but not hog-wild.  So no buttery risotto this weekend.

I’ve been regularly running or working out on the elliptical.  I’ve only done Pilates once this past week, but I need to work that in on a more regular basis.  Yesterday was a long work out on the elliptical and I felt like giving up early, but I have these quotes on the wall of the basement where I can see them.  They are from Lysa TerKeurst’s book Made to Crave.

Weight Lost

I weighed in this morning and since last Wednesday I have lost 0.2  pounds. That’s 0.1% for the week. Since beginning 2 weeks ago I have lost  3.4 pounds ( 1.97%) overall. I have a few weight loss goals-

  • Get to a healthy BMI (7.6 pounds to go)
  • Get to my pre-pregnancy weight (9.6 pounds to go)
  • Get to my pre-marriage weight (14.6 pounds to go)
  • Total Weight Loss Goal {Get back to my ideal weight} (24.6 pounds to go)

Now it’s your turn! How are you all doing? Please feel free to share any posts about steps you are taking toward becoming healthier.  I’d love to cheer you on!

Congrats on your progress so far, that's awesome! I tend to fall of the wagon on the weekends too!
