Move it and Lose it

I have been living the "Move it and Lose it " motto for almost 2 months now. I am literally getting up and, moving every way I can to try and lose these stubborn 50lbs I have gained over the last 5 years. This week has been no different. It was however more challenging than the past couple weeks. My boys caught some type of flu bug. We are thinking it came from the new gym we just joined. So since they had this nasty flu I wasn't able to take them to the gym with me. If they can't go to the gym neither can I. I've had to resort to fitness at home.

I did some runs at the local park.
Tried my 1st Walk at home video and loved it. Continued to do it 3 times this week.
I did two Kettlebell workouts on Live Fit Revolution.

I felt pretty good about what I accomplished on my own at home but, wasn't sure if I had done enough. My food intake was pretty on point. I managed to get in 95 oz of water in 6 out of the 7 days. I added tons of veggies/fruits to every meal. I would say this week has been a super week for me!

My scale pic for the week!

That's a weightloss of -2 lbs

What's the next step for me? More Move it and Lose it!! This week is the kick off to Mamavation's "Move it and Lose it" Challenge. The Move it and Lose it Challenge is a 7 week challenge to see who loses the most percentage of body weight. (Think Biggest Loser) The winner of the challenge receives a pair of Earth Footwear Shoes and, $500.00!!!! Thank you Earth Footwear you guys ROCK!!

...So here is the dreaded "before and after" pics. Please don't stare at them long as they will start playing tricks on you and, make me look more fat than I really am!!

Sorry I had to scare you like that I promise you this will be the last time you will see pictures like this from me again!

Way to go on the weight loss and on finding an alternative to working out at the gym when you weren't able to go. I hope the boys are feeling better. Have a great week!
