It was a good week because I lost 2 pounds, which completely surprised me!  A bad week because I felt I was falling off the wagon.   I keep saying that the struggle is real.  Lose a pound, gain two, lose two, and gain one.  I definitely feel like the pounds or I should say inches are coming off.  My clothes feel loser and my knees do not look at thick!  I am going to update my measurements from three months ago!  Can you believe, because I cannot, that it has been three months and I have only lost 7 pounds!  Let’s look at how Fit at Fifty Week Thirteen worked out!

Fit at Fifty Week Thirteen

Had a little more wine than I had wanted to during the week, not to mention some delicious ice cream.  I did good about making sure my portions were small and did not go overboard.  I am finding that I am less hungry than in the past, so it is easy to fill up and not want seconds.  It has to be pretty special for me to take another helping.

Okay, spin has become my jam!  OMG, I am loving it so much that I find myself going kind of overboard.  Quitting the gym and buying a bike for the house, may have been one of the best things ever.  Not to mention, I am totally digging the videos I found on YouTube.  The CTX boys keep me wanting to  get more and more miles in.  I find once I hit the 45 – 60 minute mark, I am ready and willing to push it to 90 minutes and even 100 minutes!  As well, I have been trying to get up early to get it done, which I think really helps my day be more proactive and focused!

I have not done yoga in a couple weeks as I was getting kind of bored;  but, I am feeling an itch to start again.  This week!  As well, I have added some weights, which I would like to start more of.  Another goal for this week!

If you are following along and doing your own fitness/weight loss challenge at home, how is it going for you?  I would love to hear your successes and failures too!

This week is going to be tough with Thanksgiving but I am doing to try my hardest to keep the pace going and to not over indulge!
