Weigh-In Wednesday

Hey Guys!

It's Wednesday, so you know what that means! It's time to calculate the weight loss for the week! We are also starting a contest this week which we will talk more about later! Now, onto the numbers!

Starting weight - 244
Current weight - 240
Pounds lost this week - 4
Total pounds lost - 4

So I weighed in for another diet group I am a part of on Sunday and was down 7 pounds!! Imagine my shock and disgust to see that I had gained 3 pounds back since then! After a mild breakdown (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!) I have decided to just accept that I did my best and I am feeling better! I did ALOT of walking these past couple weeks so my goals for this week are: To try and incorporate some different exercise in with my walking and pay more close attention to my sodium and carbs. Also, whole foods, whole foods and WHOLE FOODS!! Thank you for coming along on this journey with us and for all of your support. You guys rock! (Does anyone say that anymore?) ~A

Total pounds lost - 5

I'm really excited to have met my weekly goal, which was to lose 2.5 lbs. The numbers are good, but I've got more work to do. While I did lose weight, and eat healthy *most* of the time (there may or may not have been a 9pm run to taco bell last Thursday after we got home from taking the kids trick-or-treating, in which I may or may not have taken part in the eating of an evil crunch wrap supreme and the drinking of some liquid Satan which the world so misleadingly refers to as mt. dew)... I did not do much working out (and by not much, I actually mean none). So this week, in addition to making the new weight loss goal of 2.5 lbs, I'm also making it a goal to work out at least 3 of the 7 days. Baby steps, right? My biggest hurdle with working out is finding the time! Between homeschooling, daycare, being a mom, soccer, ballet, celebrate recovery, working a part time 3rd shift job and any of the extras in life, I've found there's not much extra time. My question for you guys is, where do YOU find the time? - H


We know that healthy living is *not* all about the scale!!  We also realize that some weeks we will do everything right and still not lose or maybe even gain (curse you, mother nature!). However, we feel that the weigh-in every week is a good way to keep accountable! Whether or not you feel comfortable putting your numbers out there is totally up to you.  Maybe you just want to comment on the lbs you dropped this week and that's ok. Just PLEASE get involved and let's motivate and help one another! Oh, and let's make a pact not to get upset if the scale is not kind for a week and remember what really matters is how you feel!! Ok, moving on!

We announced earlier in the week that we would be having 4 contests this month, one for every week. We will be calling out first challenge the "Hydration" challenge because it's all about, you guessed it...Water Consumption!  Drinking enough water is one of the keys to good health! It's calorie free and oh-so-good for your body! We want to motivate you (and ourselves) to not only drink enough water, but keep track of our ounces. So here's how it works: Everyday the first week of November we will post a "water role call" on our Facebook. We will post how much water we have drank that day and ask you to comment and do the same. Every person that comments EVERYDAY for a week will be put into the cyber equivalent of a hat and one name will be chosen to win this:
(was that too much? It was, wasn't it?)
It's copper, made of stainless steel, holds 24 ounces and promises to turn any "normal" water drinking event into a splendid time! All your friends have them, so don't miss your chance to be the cool kid on the block!...You deserve this! Let your water scream out "I'm fancy"!
(I'm thinking about starting a new career in marketing!)
We are really excited about this contest and hope that it will get more people talking on our page and hopefully help some people meet their water drinkin' goals!!! As always thank you for reading and we hope to hear from you all this week!!!!

  1. My 'time' to workout is usually 8PM while the kids unwind in front of the TV for 30 minutes. I either walk or run (my treadmill is in the family room).
    Some nights (when we don't have a crazy night) I love to go on You Tube and do Tiffany Rothe Workouts and Zumba Videos (Even 15 min of Tiffany and I'm seriously sore the next day).
