Operation:MILF

Happy Friday!! How milfy are you feeling today after another week of partying on the fitness train? This week, in honor of Valentine's Day, share your favorite healthy dessert recipe if you have one. I will promise you that I will not be eating healthy dessert today but would love to share recipes for another day!

Any progress toward your goals?

    I'm afraid of this too which is why I've put off weighing! Awesome job on the power walks!

  • Did yoga again this week. Not as much walking/running as I would have liked too. I haven't weighed myself so I'm not sure if I've made progress this week. But I have been eating very well so tonight I will probably overeat and ruin any progress made!

    I love this no-bake cheesecake recipe from Skinny Taste really easy to make too! http://www.skinnytaste.com/2009/04/no-bake-cheesecake.html

  • I was feeling all sorts of milfy after finding out I am down to my pre pregnancy weight last week. Then I ate an entire box of valentine chocolate in one day...not so sexy.

    I did start doing some workouts with the guidance of DH. Mostly jogging up and down the stairs, push ups, and some minor ab stuff...my tummy is still all weak and flabby so real ab stuff may take time!

  • This week I stayed under calorie goal all week! Plus I only had dessert once it was Tres Leches cake from Chuys, definitely not very healthy but oh so good. It is warming up a bit so took DD for a walk around the neighborhood and have been doing DVDs at home. Plus I'm staying up on my water intake.

    I weigh periodically throughout the week, earlier it was down 2.5 lbs, but today on official weigh-in day I'm down 1.5 lbs. I'll take it, a loss is a loss.

    Sorry I don't really have any good healthy dessert ideas, wish I did as that would make this losing weight stuff so much easier! Sweets are my life!

    I haven't weighed myself today, but doubt that I'm at my goal because of all of the chocolate...Gym in a month when I'm back in SD! Current weight is about 150, 141 is pre-pregnancy and 135 is pre both babies. 135 is my goal!

    A healthy snack that I have been pretty obsessed with recently is slathering peanut butter on top of a banana. Yum! Peanut butter on celery is pretty delicious, too.

    I think I should have named baby Russell Stover...

  • I'm doing good with my food since joining WW last Monday but I haven't gotten the work outs in. Still struggling to make time for that with being a working mama of 3. One day though. Since last Monday I have lost 8 lbs so I am thrilled with that and I know once I can start working out it will help me even more.

    3-2-1 cake:
    Mix any kind of cake mix you like with a angel food mix. Keep in a Baggie all mixed together. Whenever you want cake all you need is to mix 3 tablespoons cake mix 2 tablespoons water in a bowl or coffee mug and cook for 1 minute. I put a little cool whip on top and enjoy.

     Also I do plain rice cakes with PB2 mixed with cool whip.

    Joined back at LA Fitness on Tuesday, got great workouts on Tues & Weds. Yesterday we did a long family walk. Not sure if I'll get in more than a walk today as I kinda just wanna snuggle with the fam today. I've been tracking my food and stayed under calorie goals this week...but zero weight loss, might have gained a lb or 2 :-/ Boo. I wanted to cry when I realized how poor my core strength is...and that's bad because I did no workout that was primarily core: push-ups were a beast. Ow. Ready for my strength to come back!!

    Healthy dessert: sprinkle halved peaches with brown sugar & broil.

  • I ate junk all week, so although I haven't stepped on the scale I'm expecting a gain at tomorrow's WW weigh in. I was so stressed (LO & I are sick and she's barely sleeping) that I didn't even track.

    Hoping to get the ok to workout at Monday's dr appt, and praying that motivates me to eat better too. I need to throw out all the sweets first...

  • Just got a fitbit for VD! Excited to finally start losing some wt as I was just cleared. Anyone else have a fitbit?

  • I've been doing really good with my workouts.. Not so good with the eating earlier in the week. I start my period and when that happens all self control goes out the window :(
    I've lost 3 pounds in 2 weeks. Definitely not as much as I'd like, but it's something.
    I taught my first class at the gym since having Easton and it felt so good to get back to teaching. It's an hour long weight lifting class and I had only been doing body weight exercises up until then so I am incredibly sore!

    When I need something sweet I eat a piece of dark chocolate!

  • I have not done a damn thing this week. The first PP period has not been fun and I have always struggled with working out and eating healthy when I have my period. So no scale for me this week. My favorite healthy dessert recipe is 1 package of angel food cake mix with 1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple. Bake at 350 for @ 25 minutes. I put a little bit of reddi-whip on top and it's pretty tasty. It's a popular go-to WW dessert.

    We've got one here in Oklahoma now, if that is any closer for you! We ate there twice this week, once as a splurge and once after a funeral we both needed a pick me up. I'm amazed that I can eat there and still stay under calorie goal. Of course that is with exercise and bf'ing helping out with extra calories for the day.

  • I did not so very well this week. Eating I was decent I guess, I only made it to one workout so far this week. I actually don't think I'm going I weigh in this week. I'm going to give myself a couple weeks where I hold myself accountable with working out and exercising, but not weigh myself. This always seems to work for me, because I find myself obsessing about the weight and it frustrates me.

    I don't have a healthy dessert recipe. I normally will treat myself with a 1/2 cup of natural vanilla ice cream a couple times a week. Tonight I don't expect to be eating a healthy dessert ;)

  • I've been back to Pilates 3 days a week, but missed yesterday because I had my iud inserted. So before my appointment I went for my first run since 6weeks pregnant. I made it 2 miles and then was dead.

  • I've been carb loading all week. I will be starting a ketogenic diet with DH tomorrow (after my Valentine's dinner). It's basically a low-carb diet. DH has been following it for about a year due to his diabetes and has lost 50+ pounds. I'm hoping it will help me detox from sugar and get back on track. Here's a link to info about it, if anyone is interested:

  • Worked out with my trainer twice this week, now need to work on tweeking my diet.
    Old WW favorite dessert is 1 whole Chocolate graham cracker broke in half. Smoosh cool whip in between halves and put in freezer for a few minutes. It tastes just like an ice cream sandwhich.

  • I've been walking everyday this week. I even did some uphil jogs and walking lunges! My legs/butt were sore---the good kind! My eating slipped a little and will probably be bad again today!!

    I fit into my non-maternity jeans!!! They are my fat jeans and they are tight and cause a helluva muffin top--- but they fit!!!

    Progress, not perfection.

  • I've got 6 more baby weight pounds to lose (and then some extra to go that I had put on prior to the preg). I've been working out in my basement here and there but haven't started dieting yet. I go back to work in a few weeks and will be using the gym there during lunch (my old routine).

    I've been feeling pretty good about myself this week! I took a tap class and a hip hop class! The last time I danced I was 8 weeks pregnant with LO! I also have started running around my gyms track. Did a 7.5 min mile, which was better than I expected. Just have to shed 2 minutes off of that! It is feeling really good to sweat!!

    Eta: I'm down another 2lbs this week. Yayyyyy

  • I've done surprisingly well this week, went to the gym 4 days, did cardio and light lifting. I even ate pretty well too! But last night I went to dinner with my friends and gave in to fajitas, love me some Mexican food mmm mmm! (Anybody got any healthy mexican food recipes?!)
    And tonight I'm having chocolate and wine......
    Great way to end the week haha but atleast it's progress!
    Last time I tried on my prepregnancy jeans I could get them on (tight) but couldn't button! ugh! I'm kind of enjoying wearing sweatpants and leggings everywhere thou!
    I'm glad you posted about the healthy deserts as a sweet tooth can definitely ruin my whole progress for the week! I have had Nutella on a banana (not that healthy) and light cool whip with blueberries and strawberries
    notthecheatCaramarchi
  • Went to the gym 3 days so far this week and have done 3 days of Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30. I feel so much better. I ran on the treadmill and by ran I mean, I suffered through a minute of running on and off for 5 minutes before I knew I had reached my max. I'm looking forward to seeing results! Busting my butt for sure and eating pretty healthy but not super restricted. I probably won't start restricting until I am done bfing in June.

    As for a healthy dessert, do chocolate covered strawberries count??? :)
    notthecheatCaramarchi
  • I fit into my pre-pregnancy pants! Granted they don't fit the way they used to, but I'm in them. I've lost about 4 pounds, 11 to go!
