The Start

So for the past two weeks I have been using Weight Watchers in hopes that it can control my eating habits and controlling my portions. I will fully admit the first week I wasn’t putting in what I really should have. So this week I have officially put my all into it and even started the Insanity program. My overall goal is to weigh between 160-170 depending on how I “wear” the weight. I’m a big girl by nature with my massive thighs from ice hockey so I want to look healthy in my body so that’s what I mean when I say how I wear it.

So here is my first picture of the old me… Taken today. Clearly I have the baby fanny pak going on thanks to the twins…that’s 9 months of hard work and 3 years keeping it maintained 😉

MEASUREMENTS
Weight: 231.3
Stomach: 42inches
Waist: 45inches
Boobs McGee: 42inches
Chest: 39 inches
Arms: 14inches
Thighs: 27inches
Calves: 18inches

This after noon I did my first workout of Insanity and holy heck was it a lot of work. Made it even harder when your three children are trying to do it with you and get in the way.
Peyton
As you can tell Peyton was trying it out herself with the Suicide Jumps. Sadly she may have done more than me and looked more graceful doing it too.
So the fit test makes you count how many reps you do of each workout and it gives you a progress report of how well you are doing in the 60 days of Insanity. Well I got through it all without puking so that’s a huge positive haha. I also did slightly better than I thought I would do with some of the workouts. Here are my stats for the first time along with YouTube videos on how to do them 🙂 Each work out was a minute long

Swift Kicks : 45
Power Jacks: 35
Power Knees: 28
Power Jumps: 25
Globe Jumps: 7
Suicide Jumps: 6
Push Up Jacks: 5
Low Plank Obliques: 12

I think I’m really going to enjoy Insanity and its totally going to kick my butt but that is EXACTLY what I need! Day 2 tomorrow which will be Plyometrics Cardio Circuit!

MEAL TIME

Throughout my blog I will also be posting my meals with weight watchers points attached and also links to the recipes.

Breakfast: was egg white omelet with mushrooms, orange bell pepper, tomato and WW three cheese. Along with Jennie O turkey Bacon and WW bread. +7 point breakfast! oh and of course my amazing coffee! Can’t go without my coffee lol
Breakfast

Lunch was left overs from last nights dinner of Un-Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. Let me tell you this recipe will now be a weekly thing in this house. From now on I will then add mushrooms and play around with some spices. I also used turkey burger instead of regular beef. Find the recipe here: 5+ WW points for 1 cup
Cabbage Rolls

Dinner was another weight watchers recipe Chili Cheesy Mac that I have done before with turkey burger but decided to do it with regular ground beer this time. Turned out just as good AND the family loved it even my husband who has an issue with bean textures 🙂 Recipe here 7+ points
Chili

Well that’s it for my very first blog post! I enjoyed writing it and I hope you will follow me! I will get better as I get the hang of it 🙂 Good Night!
