Wednesday Weigh In

Previous Weight:  194.4
Current Weight:  193.2
Difference:  -1.2 pounds

I am bumping up my weigh in post this week because we are actually traveling tomorrow and I'll be out of commission for a few days.  I am pleased with my weigh in this week, I'm back to my lowest weight.  The one good thing about FODMAPing is that it's really not possible for me to mindlessly snack, so that clearly made a difference this week.

On the exercise front I am also really starting to fall in love with HIIT workouts and have only been doing the ones from Fitness Blender 3-4 times a week.  If you're looking for free internet workouts, I can't recommend these enough.  They are well taught, there is NO music in them and there is such a huge variety of videos to choose from that it's impossible to be bored.  I've been doing the HIITs that are 20-25 minutes long and while challenging, they go by so fast that you're not hating your life.  Most importantly, I've been sore and feel like I'm actually doing something to change my body.  I've noticed small differences already in my arms and legs, so I'm definitely happy.  I imagine I'll keep up with them even after the March challenge part is over.  I am also still doing my plank/wall sit and hand weight challenges on top of it.

So we are leaving tomorrow and meeting our friend Steve in Arizona to attend a Bruce Springteen show in Phoenix.  It should be a lot of fun, and it will be nice to go somewhere sunny!  It has been so rainy and gross here that I am ready for a bit of sun.  We are literally only there for like 24 hours, but any sun is better than none at this point!

I've already planned out some emergency snacks I can have and have scoped out the hotel restaurants' menus to plan out what I can have from a dinner and breakfast standpoint.  Thankfully they have options I can have!  I'm also bringing some workout clothes so that I can sneak in a HIIT workout on Friday morning.

I'll leave you guys with something from The River album (Bruce is playing the whole album on this tour).



  1. Woo hoo! Congrats on the weight loss!

  2. Way to go! Glad to hear that the new diet is already paying off for you with an extra bonus beyond the reason you are following it.
    Have fun at Bruce.

    Oh and on a completely unrelated side note, I have been reading your blog for a while and you have mentioned multiple times about a show called Better Call Saul.
    I just decided to check it out on Netflix always assuming it would just be dumb. Wow, I could not be more wrong. About 1/2 way through the first season and I could not be more hooked. Every single character is awesome and so well cast.
    Thanks for bringing this show to my attention because I would never have sought it out.

  3. Glad the new diet is working so far!
