The Biggest Loser Week 2, Potty Training, and Chaos

Image

This last week has SUCKED as far as my weight loss efforts. I gorged myself on chocolate, wasn’t paying attention to how much water I was drinking, and didn’t do much as far as working out went. But, somehow the weight loss gods were on my side, and *drum roll* I am down 2 lbs! 

That means:
Last week I was at: 166.4
This week I am at: 164.0 
That is a loss of 2.4 lbs this week and 5.2 lbs (or 3.07%) total. I am feeling awesome about myself. Just eating more often and drinking more water/cutting out pop is making such a difference! 

 

Today, for some random reason, Hubs and i decided to start the three days to potty training with the boys. By noon, Nick was back in diapers. He is not ready! He bawled his little eyes out every time he peed. Alex, however… Alex only peed on the floor twice all day! He went to his potty every other time! My stubborn monster is finally getting it! I am so so so so proud of him! Every other time we tried, he fought so hard, we backed off. This time, he is thriving in our praise! I am still worried about him holding in bowel movements. But I guess we will see what the next few days brings!

This picture is from August of 2012. Alex was only 20 months old. But it makes me smile and giggle. 

I was up at 430 AGAIN this morning with my monsters. But I got Nick to nap today for the first time in over a week. So I am hoping that it’s a sign tomorrow will be better since maybe he won’t be as over tired and his little body with actually rest better. Also I broke Alex’s car seat and need to go replace it. I read the wrong manual and thought the base on his came off. Turns out only Nick’s base has the option of coming off. I guess we are buying a new car seat. Ha ha. What a day. I am off to bed. Tomorrow is a new day. 

Love, Hugs and more to come later

  1. Congratulations on the weight loss! It’s amazing (and rather counter-intuitive) that one needs to eat more often to help with weight loss, isn’t it? Happy to hear that potty training is going well with one of your little guys.

  2. Well done (sort of – haha) on the weightloss! 😉 I need to do what I’ve been wanting to do since I started weaning Samuel a few weeks ago – EAT RIGHT AND EXERCISE but I seem to pull out every excuse possible not to exercise, and I’ve gotten into a bad (bunch) of eating habits. 😦
