4 Week Check In

First things first.  Kaitlyn is training Meagan how to be a big sister!

That’s right…we are expecting!  Teresa is due early September 7th.  I am over the moon excited – although I don’t show excitement well 🙂  Below is a picture of a necklace Teresa created that we used to announced it our friends. 


Back to the check in! So I tried something this week.  I had smoothies for 2 meals per day – and I only gained 2 pounds this week!

But I also lost an inch off my waist in one week for a total of 3.5 in 4 weeks…and my energy is higher than it has been in years.  This is usually the time of year where I start to feel SAD from Seasonal Affective Disorder, but it is not too bad this year…So all in all I am ok with that  extra two pounds in a week.

Here is what my meals typically were this week:

Breakfast Smoothie – 1 cup of frozen strawberries and blueberries. 1 banana, 1 cup OJ, .5 cup yogurt, and 1 cup H2O with 1 scoop of whey protein.

Snack: 1 boiled egg and an apple.

Lunch Smoothie: 1 cup of chopped Kale, 1 cup of chopped spinach, 2 cups of water, and 3 cups fruit (usually apple, grapes, banana, etc.) This is two servings and it is surprising filling.

Snack was usually skipped cuz I was so full. but I had packed almonds or a granola bar etc.

Dinner: soup/salad, Chicken and potatoes, etc.

Snack: veggies sticks with dip.

Stats for the week:

  • Weight: 182 lbs   (-12lbs)
  • Right Thigh: 24.5″ (-1″)
  • Hips: 40″ (-2″)
  • Waist:  38″ (-3.25″)
  • Chest: 40.5″ (-.5″)
  • Neck 15.5″ (-1″)
