Weigh In and Extended Boot Camp Day 3

Alrighty. Headed back to WW to weigh in this week for the first time since the 2nd week in Nov. I was happy with the results - up .2, which I'm perfectly fine with. Until today, I've been going to weigh ins in a skirt or dress. Today I bit the bullet and wore pants. So, my thought is the gain is more from change of clothes than a real gain. I should be fine next week. :-) Yea!

Did well on extended boot camp day 3. Stayed on points, minus a chocolate covered Oreo cookie at 1:00 a.m. Friday morning. LOL! I was making them for a holiday party Sat. and I just HAD to have one. :-) Had a simple breakfast of cereal and a banana, lunch was something...I can't remember! LOL! Dinner, I made steak ums with reduced-fat provolone cheese on flat out bread. Turned out real yummy! :-) For dessert, a pumpkin cupcake. It was a good food day. Got in all my water as well. It was pretty easy for some reason. Probably all the cleaning I did. And other than the Oreo cookie at 1:00 am., I didn't eat after 9:00 p.m.

I didn't do any formal exercise, but cleaned a lot. I dusted, vacuumed, put things away, hung pictures, scrubbed the bathroom. It was a tiring day and while not walking/running/Wii, it was a workout. Which has been the MO the last several days around here. But the house is starting to look nicer, so I shouldn't complain. :-)

So, what were the results of Chris's November Boot Camp?

5.2 pounds lost

Not too bad. I think I'm not going to be so stringent in December. With the holidays, it would be too much to ask. But, I know that a lot of the items on the boot camp list are almost second nature now, so I think December will be easier than it's been in the past.


  1. Awesome Friday News! I always wonder if my clothes don't figure into it sometimes, too. I wish I could just wear the same thing every Monday, but that would look weird! ;)

  2. Nicole - Clothes definately play a part in your weight come weigh in day. I used to wear skirts/shirts or summer dresses to weigh in, but the weather is too cold for that now. I had to suck it up and put on pants. LOL! How heavy your clothes are will influence what the scale says.

    Carrie - Not a .2 loss, a .2 gain. LOL! It's ok. It was 3 weeks since I went in and my AC weekend and the week of Thanksgiving were train wrecks. .2 pounds is an amazing amount and I'm ok with it. :-)

  3. no, i was talking about your overall November loss.

  4. Oh! Doh! LOL! Sorry. I'm a dork. Then I was starting to wonder how many one word sentences I could write. :-) Apparently, four.
