Body After Baby Project: Week 2



Alrighty, so, it’s week 2 and I’ve got to confess: I’ve been a huge exercise failure this week. Nutrition-wise I’ve been very good but exercise.. Well. I’m doing what I feel I can do. It’s difficult, only having one car and a limited amount of days in which I can go to the gym. Also, it’s about 900 degrees outside here so walking outside is a no-go, because I have to take my daughter with me and it’s too hot for her.

I do have an at-home DVD I can do, but I’ve been so tired when I got home from work.. Blah blah, excuses. I got in a REALLY good workout Wednesday at the gym so that’s good. I will say also, I walked quite a bit around the mall on Thursday and had a good 30-45 minutes of pretty heavy… errr.. “physical exertion” with my husband on Friday, if you catch my drift. Saturday and Sunday I walked around the mall again for about an hour each time, so that’s something at least. Sunday night I was going to do my 30 Day Shred but Nellie kept waking up right as I was about to start, so I just ended up doing some crunches.

Normally I hit the gym on Sundays but didn’t make it, so I have no idea how much I weigh right now. But here are my pics:


Start Weight: 198 lbs
Current Weight: ??
Start Waist: 41″
Current Waist: 41″
Goal: 188 lbs by 8/25/10

I’m feeling a little discouraged, because I am not seeing any progress yet. I may have lost a few pounds but I don’t really know, because I haven’t been on a scale yet this week. All I know is that I’m doing what I can do right now.. I need to step up the exercise, but it is very difficult for me right now because I am limited as to when/where I can work out.

Healthy Snack Ideas

Some snacks I’ve enjoyed this week:

  • Grapes
  • Carrots and celery with hummus
  • Low-cal, whole grain wheat wrap with hummus spread & cucumbers
  • 1 piece whole grain bread w/ 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2-3 Twizzlers

Anyone got any healthy and tasty snack ideas?
