Challenge Week 2 - Fit Mommy Friday

This is the second week of 10 towards the Challenge over at Fit Mommy Friday. Now this week I expected to not lose as much and I was right.  It's kind of that time (if you know what I mean), but I am happy to report I not only did not lose anything, but I did not gain anything.  Which is awesome in my book.  Normally on these "types" of weeks I gain.  So that might mean I may have lost weight, it just won't show up until next weeks weigh-in.

So here are my goals I have posted for this challenge:

1. Eat a salad 5 times per week.
2. Drink at least 48 oz. of water each day ( I hate water.)
3. Have no more then 2 Coke (zero's - so no calories) per day.
4. Exercise with the 30 Day Shred (or another Biggest Loser video) 3 times/week. 
5. Walk 2- 3 times per week 2 times around my neighborhood.

So let's see if I can recap my week.
 #1 and #2 have been much easier to attain and I'm getting better at them too.  I have eaten a salad almost every day since the challenge began.  I've also made sure to drink my water up front  (at the beginning of the day) so that I can make sure I complete my intake of 48oz.  I have noticed that if I start later it gets harder and harder to do.

#3 - I've been keeping with the max of 2 Coke Zero's and most days I keep it at one. That is an awesome thing for me.

#4 - I've done the 30 Day Shred video, but I think they've changed them up for November on my 'On-Demand' feature with our cable programming.  Every day I plan to use it I have to search for it for a while before I can figure out where it is.  I have been able to also do this with Audrie.  She loves to exercise with me.  The other day after I had finished I was trying to see what some of the others were.  So while I was recovering and watching she got up and started working out with Jillian Michaels using her sneaker as a kettle ball.  It was hysterically cute!

#5 - I think this one I slammed out of the park!  I've walked and walked.  Last Saturday we went as a family to the corn maze.  We walked at least 4 miles (with the girls walking too).  Then this week the girls and I walked (while I strolled Seanan) around the 'hood 3 times (4 is a mile.)   And tonight to top off my week we went to the fair and walked and walked and walked.  Not sure how much but at least a mile.  And I was good.  I ate very little of the high fat and high carb food. (Usually we eat some of everything!)

Overall, I think I have had an awesome week.  And I really appreciate all of you who have commented.  It really, really helps.  And don't forget to head on over to Fit Mommy Friday and check-in on the rest of the mommies in the challenge.

Walking is good. I'm sure it's the best exercise out there! LOL

I'm sure you'll soon feel a lot better without all that coke!

Wonderful~ Sounds like you are doing GREAT! AND listen, while the scale won't lie over time, it can give a false..which is prob what has happened since you've made such great changes. KEEP going and so glad to hear of all the great things happening! I too get excited when I receive encouragement~I'm hanging onto the idea of progress not perfection! Sending a hug and wishes for a great weekend!

Sounds like you are doing great! I try to get my water in early in the day, too, but for a different reason---so I don't have to get up in the middle of the night:-)

Hope you're having a great weekend.
