BL Challenge: Week 2 Recap

Well friends, this past week of the Biggest Loser Challenge definitely had it's ups and downs. I was super busy at work and did make it to the gym three times, but it was rushed and as Jillian Michaels would say I probably was "phoning it it." I also ate a bunch of jelly beans and cheese, whoops.

I'm glad I can at least tell when I haven't been keeping up as good as I should be. Honestly I could feel that I had fallen off the fitness wagon a bit and this morning the numbers didn't lie! The challenge itself went well though, I drink so much water that I didn't even really have to monitor getting my 64 oz. in but it was a bit more difficult for Mr. Charming.

I gained two pounds, whomp! However when Mr. Charming texted me this morning with his weight (since the bugger got to stay home on a snow day, silly teachers) I was overjoyed. He lost four pounds! He's been doing such a good job with eating vegetables, cutting out sweets and unnecessary snacks and doing some workouts with his team at volleyball practice.

Week 2 Winner: Mr. Charming

Looks like I'll be making the bed this week! I was so proud of him that I picked up a few treats at Kroger when I was grocery shopping. K-cups are a privilege for us as we usually just fill the little pod with coffee and the Starbucks kind were on sale-score! I also grabbed some of Annie's gummy bunnies since he's a huge gummy fanatic and they're of a much healthier variety. Finally, we're both leaving town later this week so I got him a box of Fiber One PB&J bars to take with him to a volleyball tournament. They sound weird but are one of our new faves, even though they're marketed towards children.

I'd be lying if I didn't share that I was a bit tiffed about losing this week and having to make the bed. I definitely thought I'd be the winner all through this challenge but it looks like MC is up for the competition. I took my behind to the gym and ate lots of yummy vegetables so I can steal my winning title back next week.

For anyone playing along, how did you do this past week? Were you able to get your water in each day?

Guys lose weight so easily; it's not fair! Ryan will step on the scale after a particularly indulgent weekend and say, "hmm weird. I lost 5 pounds." And of course I will have gained 5 pounds!! Don't get discouraged, y'all are doing awesome!!
