Fit Mama Club Week 3

Another week down! I really need to buy another scale so I can really track my progress. I have noticed that a couple pairs of pants that were getting a little tight are tight no longer. Hooray! I feel much better and have more energy. I can really tell the differences on days I drink a lot of water versus the days when I have soda or tea instead. I have really cut down on both of those, even on water-light days. I am keeping more alternatives in the house - lemonade, Koolaid, juices. I also have two varieties of Mio water flavoring at work. I will take a bottle of water with me in the mornings, and refill it all day.

The breakdown:
Last Week's High -Only had soda 2 or 3 times this week! I am making better snack choices, too.
Last Week's Low - Ate lunch in the cafeteria a couple days this week - including Mexican Day. Beef and bean burrito covered in cheese sauce with rice and beans. SO not good for me, but it was yummy! Foot is still sore, and I'm having a lot of hip pain so can't be as active as I'd like.
Plan for This Week- I am considering cutting out caffeine completely for the week. Not sure if I'm brave enough for that or not - we'll see how it goes. I am seeing a doctor tomorrow about  my hip, so hopefully it will be better soon and I can do more! I also plan to take the stairs more at work, to get more exercise in my day.


  1. Good for you! Don't let the "low" times get you at all. We always have the next snack or meal to "do-over". Go slow with cutting the caffiene out. When I did it I just gradually did it and the headaches were minimal.
    I love exercise and look forward to hearing some ways you can incorporate it in. Come visit me at Maybe I have some ideas there that can help you.
    Be Blessed!

  2. Keep trucking! I'm hoping to get back to the gym this week... we'll see... :)

    Good luck with cutting out caffeine! You can do it... and if you're feeling "notchy" you know there's always a great place to vent.

  3. Thank you both!
    Cutting out caffeine has been a total bust, but I still haven't had much.

    And don't worry Amanda, I'm all about my Notches =)
