Weekly Weigh-In: Week 2

I had a pretty good week, stayed on track about 95% of the time with my eating and trained really hard. I was so expecting a loss on the scale come Saturday, but as life goes, I started my period, so when I got on the scale I weighted in exactly the same as last week: 171lbs. I usually carry an extra 2-4 lbs during the time of the month, so I'm sure that's the reason for the "no change" on the scale this week.

Even tho the # on the scale didn't change, I feel a difference already. I don't feel as bloated, pants don't seem as tight and my husband says my stomach has gone down. I'm training really hard so I know I'm putting on muscle as well so I have to keep that in mind when I jump on the scale on Saturdays. As long as I can tell my body is changing I'm not going to be so focused on the scale. Or least try not too :)

I experimented with some more baked oatmeal recipes this weekend and have 3 totally yummy ones to share:
Baked Apple/Cranberry Oatmeal
Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

Look for those recipes coming soon! The pumpkin pie was my favorite. Yum!

Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal! So YUMMY!
Until then....

    Hey Shell... It is hard to not focus on the scale as in life it seems numbers are always focused on. I do weigh myself daily but don't so much focus on the number, as taking note of how my jeans fit from day to day ;) That is how I know if I have over indulged the day before. LOL!! You are doing awesome!! And man... I need that recipe ;)

    Great week Shelly! I hate when TOM arrives, screws up our groove a bit. Arghh!!!

    Please tell me the pumpkin pie oatmeal is super healthy? I know it is otherwise you wouldn't be eating it. LOL

    I can't wait to get the recipe. I love my oatmeal every morning, but would love to change it up a bit.

    Have a great week!!

    Great job on your awesome week. That's why I don't even think about stepping foot on the scale during that time of the month. :)
