February Progress Report

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

February Progress Report:

Start weight: 216
End weight: 214
Weight lost: 2 lbs.
Total weight lost this year: 11.5 lbs.
Goal weight progress: 34 more lbs. to go to goal weight!
Onederland progress: 15 more lbs. to reach ONEderland!
Total weight lost: 84 lbs.

My goal was to lose 4 lbs. this month, bringing me to 212 lbs. I didn’t reach that, but I know this month I will. Looking back at my calendar I see notes that I need to get more workouts in, and I definitely see a pattern of over indulging on the weekends. I need to stop that. I lost only 2 lbs. this month because I didn’t push it like I did in January. I fell off the boot camp wagon, and also overate on weekends and didn’t do as much strength training. This is good information to have, it serves as a map to where I would like to be, and how to get there.

My goal this month is to lose 4-6 lbs., bringing me to 210 – 208. A huge milestone for me will be reaching 213, which is the weight I was when I married my husband almost 12 yrs. ago…our anniversary is March 13th, so I will DEFINITELY reach it by then, LOL.

(Yellow is good)


- Created and started a training program to run the Shamrock Shuffle 8K in April. This includes running 3x a week, cross-training, strength and yoga and a rest day.

- Started taking the stairs at work.

- Went out for a walk in the windy Chicago air with my two girls. With the remaining ice and snow, turned into an epic walk.

- I've incorporated weekly outside runs into my training.


- I went sledding and went down face first, on my stomach! Haven't done that since I was a kid.

- I ran at lunch even though I didn't want to and (accidentally) WITHOUT: my ipod shuffle; my HRM and my contacts.

- My favorite pair of black dress pants is finally too big to wear...I've been wearing them baggy for some time now, but now they are falling off and showing too much.

- My wedding BAND fits!!!! I'm 1 lb. away from my wedding weight and I tried it on and it FITS!!!! (This was the smaller band, the larger one that went above this one fit a few months ago).

- I ran in the snow.

- I went to a family party and didn’t pig out.

- My underwear is falling down again, time to go down a size!

- I wore new sexy undies.

- I saw some family members I haven't seen in some time and they were shocked by how small I am now.


- I have been logging my food on the weekends even though it hasn’t been pretty.

- I wore my sports bra to work to ensure that I go to the gym to get my run in.


Anything can be accomplished with the right mindset.

    *giggles* I told Hubs I have droopy drawers syndrome. Sounds like you've been suffering from DDS as well. ;) It's funny, I thought I'd be more excited about getting new underwear...and then I realize - nobody sees it. I don't much care! *lol* Still, necessary, right!? RIGHT!?! *lol*

    Great job in February and in 2011 so far! Keep it up! Can't wait to read the March recap and hear about you hitting that magic number once again! :)

    I love the wearing the sports bra to work thing. I feel like changing bras is always the biggest hassle... I may have to invest in some non-uni-boob sports bras!

    I LOVE YOU!!!! You are so awesome, even when your month isn't so great. So much to be proud of. Half of those Non-Scale Victories you could also put under the Fitness Achievements section, so huzzah to that!

    I just bought new bras today. Losing weight actually boosted me UP a cup size! Haha! That was the nicest little surprise today ever. I went from a 42B to a 38C - the shrinking is finally happening in the right places!

    Great job last month and good goals for March! I was just thinking of my small wedding band and engagement ring might be fitting soon, very exciting. You have lost a lot of weight since you began. Be good and stay strong this month, up those fitness minutes and you will get your 4 pounds plus extra too!

    I'm loving today's lists - especially the "above & beyond" category. I'm going to have to borrow that one!

    I have no doubt you'll be wedding weight in time for your anniversary. Maybe you should try on the dress? You may weigh the same, but with your new fitness level, I wouldn't be surprised if you're smaller.

    Good job moving forward in February. Here's to giving it our all in March!
