About Me

Hi, my name is Angela and welcome to my blog. This is a place where I write about my life in an honest and open way.

I am 36 years old, single, and a Christian. God gave me a heart to work with children and so I spend my day teaching kindergarten. It is my fourth year teaching and although it is hard I love it. I currently go to a college for my BA in Elementary Education which keeps me busy. Between work and school there is not much time left but I enjoy serving and helping others, watching netflix, or reading a good book.

Week 1 - 3 lb loss

Week Review:

So I finally weighed in, I was totally excited. Honestly I probably shouldn't be because my pants felt the same way but I had worked so hard this week and ate so well so I had a good feeling about it. So I totally lost 3 lbs this week! Yea me!!

I know I could have worked out more this week. Also now that I have started working out I can see that it is getting easier to work harder and longer. So this week I would like to get in more exercise. I think I did well with my eating. This week I think I want to actually track what I am eating and make sure my calories are at the right spot. I have enough experience I can pretty much estimate calories in my head so I think I am good. But it won't hurt to check. I am also go to also be checking fat, sugar, and protein to make sure they are all in reasonable levels as well.

I do know that 3lbs is a lot and so I should not expect this amount every week. My actual goal is 1 lb per week but would love 2 lbs. I have a lot to loose and know that I also need to be watching more than just my weight but my waist size and how I feel. My wii fit plus does track my waist size so I add that in today and will hopefully watch that shrink as well.

Today I babysat my nephew. I brought one of my WAP dvd's with me but did not end up doing it there. I did pack my own lunch so I brought that along and ate healthy all day. As soon as I got home (before dinner) I weighed myself because I was so excited to see. I will need to pay attention to this in future weeks of weighing in the same time. At that point I ate a good dinner (yesterday leftovers.) My dad came down today and my younger brother was over. My dad got a new computer so they were all talking and what-not in the kitchen. I didn't want to do a WAP video while they were right there, plus their was no tv shows on. So instead I got on the wii fit again. I exercised for 1 hr and about 325 calories. I have a desire to do more but visited with family instead. I am not sure how I could have avoided this challenge of having my house full. I don't really feel comfortable walking outdoors at night. I live in a bad neighborhood and I am not good at tracking my own speed or how far I have gone. Is that an excuse? I guess not if my safety is involved. It is not like this happens a lot though so I think this is just one of those things that get in the way. I still did some exercise on the wii anyways and know that I need to push myself tomorrow night or maybe actually work out at my sisters house. I wonder how Tirso would react to me working out. Guess I can always try and see.

  1. Great Job...You sound very committed and motivated...Congrats...that is not an easy thing. (comming from someone who can't quite find the motivation, yet)

    I am glad you are comming to the party, it will be good to see you! Sorry about the food choices, not exactly good for the calorie count.
