Real Housewife, Sarah: Weekly Check-in

{This week is our first check-in post with Real Housewife Blogger, Sarah in Australia! Sarah weighs in Wednesday, then checks in with us Thursday to share what’s working and what’s not!} So this week was a little better, I was able to work out every day and I had the whole week in the office so no excuses when it came to food!

  • Monday - short ride then gym cardio session (659 calories)
  • Tuesday - Ride to work and walk from train home (905 calories)
  • Wednesday - Toning session (330 calories)
  • Thursday - Walk (153 calories)
  • Friday - Workout DVD (461 calories)
  • Saturday - Walk (135 calories)
  • Sunday - Rest Day

Being in the office for the week also meant that I could get some decent meal planning happening! I also was able to enjoy all my snacks at consistent times and keep my energy up without getting too hungry! Although I did have a lot of work on and wasnt sleeping very well, so I did have a few days (namely Thursday and Saturday) where my workouts werent optimal, but I have a 20 minute minimum agreement with myself. As an absolute minimum I MUST go for a 20 minute walk everyday. My job is very sedentary - I drive to the office, sit on my backside all day, then drive home. I dont even walk to get lunch because we have a canteen at work!

I also had a huge night on Saturday night celebrating our end of season party for our Oztag team, where I won the Most Improved! Yay! Apparently I have fooled most of my team to think that I suck less than I did at the start of the season - brilliant!

*You may note that it is perpetual trophy with the year printed on it... adds character really!

So the numbers for this week are not that exciting, but exciting for me as this is the week I usually gain due to my lovely womanly time (too much information?) Here's the stats:

Weight Loss This Week: 0 lbs

Total Weight Loss (since Jan. 7th) : 4.5 lbs!
