1st Check-In!!

Okay friends its time to check in with me with your results from week one!! I am excited to see what they are. These are mine:
weight: 116.6 lbs
waist: 28.5 in
hips: 34.5 in

I lost almost 3 lbs and half an inch off of my hips. Nothing off my waist which doesn't surprise me, because my waist will be the very last to go.

Later today I will be posting my meal plan for the week. So, check back here later for the meal plan if you want it.

Remember to either send me an email or post your results here by midnight tonight!

The end of the first week

I hope everyone had a great week, and I can't wait to hear your results. My week didn't go as planned. I lost my grandpa this week, and I also have a cold. I have been pretty emotional and didn't feel like working out, although, I bet my grandpa is looking down at me, and not very happy that I am putting off these things because of him. I will do better next week grandpa, I promise! Also, with having a sore throat, I lose motivation because it hurts. With excuses aside, I can proudly say that I have stuck with eating healthy. I was strong and did not let emotions take over me in this area. I am an emotional eater, and I usually eat everything sugary to drown out the sorrows, but I DIDN'T!! I didn't eat everything on my diet plan, because I cut back on calories since I didn't get my workouts in this week.
I am a little nervous for my own results for the week, since my workout program for the week was a failure.
I hope you all had a strong week and can't wait to hear from you tomorrow!!
