7 day challenge...

Remember my 30 day challenge? Well I made it 21 days. :(

I got to thinking this week about doing a 7 day work out challenge. I figured that a shorter challenge is more likely to be completed. The light at the end of the tunnel is easier to see. :)

So who is with me? Would you like to do this 7 day work out challenge with me? I challenge you (and me) to at least 20 minutes of exercise a day. This could be any form that you choose as long as it is at least 20 minutes long. I will start tomorrow, Wednesday November 30th. I will keep you updated on how I do. I would love to have you join me!

Take that turkey...

I lost 6/10 of a pound this week! It may not be much but seeing how it included Thanksgiving, I think that is pretty good! I want to make sure I keep up the working out. I walked on the treadmill yesterday and will plan on doing it again today.

I just want to say that I couldn't be doing this with out my husband. He is such a huge support and doesn't mind if I walk on the treadmill right when he gets home from work. Not that I do that everyday, but yesterday before weigh in I wanted to get a walk in and he didn't mind at all. I sure am blessed to have such a supportive husband!

It's okay...

I gained this week :( But you know I am okay with it. I had several things working against me. First, I am a woman and you know what that means once a month. Second, cookie exchange - enough said. Third, I was sick off and on through out the week.

With all that, it is no wonder I didn't loose! However, I should have planned better regarding the cookie exchange. Also, there were times when I could have worked out but didn't.

This week, being Thanksgiving and all, I will need to really focus on working out and counting my points for everything I eat.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Remember it is a holiDAY not a holiWEEK. :)

Woo Hoo y'all, I lost 5 pounds on my first week back to weight watchers! I am so excited to be back. Now if I can just shake this respiratory thing I have going so I can work out with out coughing up a lung.

too long...

I just realized that I hadn't posted since September! Yikes, that is too long!

Here is what has been going on:

1. I joined back to weight watchers. Justin and I both decided it was what I needed to do.

2. I didn't complete the 30 day challenge, but I do want to keep doing the 30 day shred, if I could just stop being sick so I can do it.

3. I did walk on the treadmill once this week. Again, I have been sick so doing things that make me breath hard is too much and makes me start to cough too much. :(

I guess that is pretty much it. I will let you know how my first post joining weigh in goes tomorrow night. Pray that I will look to God and not food.
