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.
