It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve checked in with a loss, but here it is! Very happy to be that much closer to my goal weight. Only a few more pounds to go.

I’m crediting A LOT of my weight loss to Weight Watchers new focus on protein. Every morning I drink a chocolate Premier Protein shake, either in my iced coffee or on its own. They’re really good and with 30 grams of protein, keep me pretty full. I’m not a huge meat eater so these shakes have been game changers for me and protein intake.

Anywho…here are my favorite from around the web this week!

Kate Middleton’s outfits from her recent travels. She’s so classy. I don’t really have a desire to ever dress so fancy so often, but I’m still envious of her wardrobe. And her hair. haha.

Seth Meyers take on the week. Because you have to laugh. 🙂

Interesting ready on the safety of boxed macaroni and cheese. This is a staple in our house. When I can, I make a big batch of homemade mac and cheese, but honestly, life gets busy. I buy the blue box or store brand.

Since I’ve been losing a good bit of weight and the summer heat has been soaring, I’ve noticed that I’m wearing a lot more dresses. Mostly light, t-shirt dresses and I get them all off Amazon. Seriously. I JUST discovered clothes shopping on Amazon and I may never go to a mall again. So convenient and so cheap.

Love. This. Levaca dress. So. Much. It’s so flowy and comfortable. Perfect for warm days. Twirls well too. I have it in dark grey and want it in every color available.

This Zeagoo dress is perfect for summer events, like weddings or parties. I paired mine with a black belt just to hide the middle seam.

Tank dress. Hot summer. Enough said.

Have a great Friday, everyone!

Weigh In – 7/6

So today was weigh in day, again. Funny how they sneak up on you like that. But after attending a couple of BBQs for the holiday weekend and dealing with my new back-to-work schedule, I’m surprised I did so well. Honestly, I didn’t try that hard the past week. I still tracked, but I was also very lazy with what I ate (had my hand in the animal cracker bag too often). I really think I’m still losing easy baby weight (my son is 3 months old) and it’s going to get harder very soon. I need to buckle down and focus.

Today’s meeting was all about being assertive. Now I am NOT an assertive person. I’m very quiet. While I’ve become more vocal since having kids, I do most of my speaking up on their behalf and remain quiet when it comes to myself. This needs to change. I need to put on my big girl pants. ugh.

So in honor of being more attentive to myself, I’m listing out goals that I want to accomplish this week. If anyone gets in my way, hopefully I’ll remember about this week’s meeting topic and be a voice for myself.

Hopefully these goals will carry on to weeks thereafter, but…baby steps. 🙂

  • Don’t eat off my toddler’s plate.
  • Measure/count and track EVERYTHING.
  • Work out 5 days this week.
  • No Diet Coke or flavored sparkling water that looks healthy but isn’t because it’s also loaded with chemicals.

Next Thursday I’ll be back to update you all on my goals. I know I’m not perfect, but at least two better be checked off.

What goals did you set for yourself this week?
