Sweet Summertime 7 Week 1 Check-Up

Happy Hump Day! I really need this week to fly by.

Today is Weigh-in Wednesday, as well as the official 1 week checkup for my Sweet Summertime 7! So here's how the 7 are coming along so far....

  1. Run a 5k: Haven't been ballsy enough to run yet with my toe, but I'm planning on it Thursday after work and before kickball.
  2. Get down to 165 lbs : Well, today I weighed 184 flat. That's down 1.2 pounds from last week. Considering what I've been eating this week and  how little I've worked out, I'll take it.
  3. Get down to a size 8-10 and Medium : Workin' on it.  
  4. Learn portion control: This is still a struggle for me.
  5. Do a fitness class every week : This week my work schedule has been all over the place and has not allowed for me to make a class that sounds appealing. But next week I have all late shifts (noon-830PM) so I plan on going to a morning class.
  6. Feel comfortable in a bikini in a picture without a cover-up :Workin' on it.
  7. Go on a hike at least once a month : Perhaps this Sunday?
So, as you can see, I haven't made a ton of progress. But it's only been a week. If you want to join me in setting goals for yourself this summer, please do!!!

Since I weighed in today, I also wanted to linkup for Weigh In Wednesday.

Pretty Strong Medicine

Like I said before, I've lost 1.2 pounds since last week. Which I'm perfectly happy with. I'm not morbidly obese considering my height and actual size/muscle mass, so I'm not over here trying to lose 6 pounds a week. That isn't healthy unless you're on a ranch with a little crazy lady screaming at you to move your ass and being monitored heavily by doctors. Just a friendly reminder :) 

Last night, I drug my butt to the gym after I got off work (at 830 at night, might I add). With my commute, I got there at 9. I attempted to get on the spinning bike, but my vajay-jay hurt like hell after a few minutes so I used it as my warmup and hopped onto an elliptical for another 20. I increased my resistance and incline a few times to vary my heart rate, and I feel like I got a decent workout in, considering. Then I randomly picked out a few weight machines and did a few free-weight exercises to get Jillian Michaels' arms (in my dreams), and then I tanned. Sue me.

And here's some pinspiration:

And this is a cool pin I found a while ago and actually used. I lace my shoes like in the picture, but there are tons of other ways depending on your feet shape/issue.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday, and I can't wait to read everyone else's progress :)


  1. omg just seeing Jillian in that pic makes me feel like i should be working out haha! great progress this week :D

  2. Thank you!! And yes, she has that power over me too!! It's amazing how much more motivated I feel when Biggest Loser is on TV and I can see her yelling at those people for real Lol.

  3. At first I didn't see the decimal point inbetween 1 and 2 and I thought it said 12 lbs down from last week!

    Awesome job on the loss! I want those shoes! The nice thing about working out is there are so many cute styles of shoes and clothes now!

  4. Hahaha I WISH I could lose 12 pounds in a week (in a healthy way , of course)!! And yesssss I'm much more likely to work out if I feel like I have cute clothes on :) I found a Victoria's Secret Pink sports bra (with actual cups in it) on SALE the other day and I'm obsessed.

  5. Good job on the loss! I think any loss is great and it all adds up! Nice Pinspiration!

    Thanks for linking up!

  6. Any loss is good. Working out that late at night would be tough for me. Way to go!
