vacation weight loss challenge: week 2

vacation weight loss challenge (2)
I have been struggling here lately with a lack of motivation to do much of anything. The laundry has been waiting three days to be washed, the office is in disarray, my fridge is jam packed and totally unorganized and I have approximately 50 cookies, 4 suckers and the equivalent of one large McDonald’s french fry strewn about my vehicle (thanks, Elias).

It might have something to do with quarantine, it might have something to do with the stress we’ve been under house hunting or it might have something to do with the fact that our only full bathroom is currently housing a mommy cat and her four seven week old kittens…probably not that last one, truth be told. 😉 But I’m trying to take it one day at a time and just roll with it.

The one thing I HAVE been motivated to do is work my butt off to lose this weight. I have been walking daily and doing either Ballet Beautiful or weights six days a week (which is nothing new) and I have really been working on getting my night eating under control. My sister is continuing on just as she has been, steadily and consistently losing weight by counting calories and walking. Mom seems to be struggling a bit – she chose to do a carb cycling way of eating and is having difficulty on her low carb days. My other sister never actually weighed in or measured (or let anyone know about it at the very least) so we’re all assuming she’s not participating.

So let’s see how we’re all doing. 🙂

ME
bust inches lost: 0
waist inches lost: – .5″
hip inches lost: 0
thigh inches lost: 0
weight lost: – 1.4lbs

KRISTIN
bust inches lost: -1″
waist inches lost: – .5″
hip inches lost: – .25″
thigh inches lost: – .25″
weight lost: – .6lbs

MOM
bust inches lost: 0
waist inches lost: 0
hip inches lost: – .5″
thigh inches lost: 0
weight lost: – 3.3lbs

I have still been struggling with night eating but am trying to get it under control and then compensating during the day with lower calorie meals and/or fasting which seems to be working well. Kristin is frustrated with her weigh in as she is getting ready for that time of the month and is retaining water. Although Mom seems to be struggling with her low carb days, she is CLEARLY in the lead as far as weight lost, even if it is just water weight.

Remember, I’ll be posting our starting and ending weights (not just pounds lost) and our before and after photos. AND if I win, I’ll host a giveaway. 🙂

Be sure to check in next week for the next update!

  1. I have been doing a keto diet. cheating too much. I need to clean out the pantry so I’m not tempted to eat junk at a week moment. Dewey, the household chef, is doing well with this diet and has been wonderful about planning and cooking low carb foods. We are both having back issues so our usual walking plan has been modified. I think we would loose much quicker if we could walk 3 – 4 miles like we used to do a year ago!

    1. My “cleaning out my pantry” is eating everything I’m trying to get rid of. Haha. I have been planning healthier meals as well, but I just love my carbs too much. And I’m so sorry about your back – I would go nuts without my walks. 🙂
