The Quest for Skinny Erika Week Seven

I lost a crazy amount of weight last week. Like, double-take the scale kind of weight.

Well, first I did a double-take because the scale said I gained 1.8 lbs and I despaired. My grumbling inspired my trainer to have me hop on the scale again, this time after waiting for it to finish blinking it’s zeros at me first. When I did, the scale showed me a much happier number and my despair was gone.

(Wanna know what the number was? Check out my post for Fitness Together Sammamish to find out because I’m a dirty rotten tease!)

Of course, it’s worth noting that shortly thereafter my trainer almost made me lose the contents of my stomach thanks to a grueling workout, but hey. At least there was despair loss before breakfast loss.

Anyway, last week was a very successful week because I made it to the gym six out of seven days. I even started incorporating jogging into my workout (I’m adding it slowly because I don’t want to rouse the wrath of my knees).

So that’s my story for this week. Up at 6:30 am to hit the gym, back by 8 am to be a mommy, writing a novel while the baby sleeps, and then waking up to do it all again the next day.

My life is awesome.

  1. Look at how flat your stomach is getting! And look at your skinny ankles!

    Girl, you make me wish I hadn’t nose-dived off the diet wagon this week. You look amazing! way to go, I hope you are so proud of yourself!!

  2. -Jennifer, You noticed my ankles! I asked Wes if my ankles looked skinnier and he looked at me like I was crazy. Thank you for noticing my lack of cankle action! And I repeat, you did not nose-dive off the wagon. I like to think of it as a way to goad your body into paying attention to your efforts. Like when you went out a bunch for your birthday. You didn’t lose that week, but then the very next week you were right back to good behavior and you dropped a ton of weight!
