Wednesday Weigh-In and Weekly Wrap-Up

Pounds Lost = THREE!!!!!
Net loss from last week's gain = 2

Goals from last week: 

  1. Stretch once a day: DID IT
  2. Gym Twice a Week: - DID IT
  3. Home workout once.... did not do it :( 

Two out of three is not bad.

I am so impressed with myself that I lost over the Thanksgiving Holiday. I am not exactly sure how I pulled that off to be honest. I am about to cross a big milestone for me.  You may remember that when I started this blog it was over desperation that I had yo-yoed yet again. I had lost 20 lbs some months before and had managed to gain 14 of it back! I am happy to report that if I lose one more pound I will have RE-LOST those 20 lbs. ... this time for good.  This process has been frustrating so far, because I haven't really felt like I was losing, I just felt like I was backtracking. Once I get back to that amount, I will really feel like I am making progress. I would like to be at or under it by next weeks weigh-in and hit my 25 lb milestone before Christmas.

Today is the first day of December and with snow falling this morning it is really feeling like winter. It is also the first day of my Monthly Challenge and my Monthly Adventures. My adventures are going to be ZUMBA and Ice Skating. Over the month of December I will go to ZUMBA at least 3 times, and will go ice skating at least twice.  I am planning my first Zumba trip with Knitia and Cloud Dancing's Heartsong this weekend, so far so good.

My Monthly Challenge took a lot of thought, but I think I have come up with something. A long time ago i did a fitness test and one of the items was how many proper well formed push-ups can you do (on your toes not your knees) I could only do 3..... don't laugh. So i found this push-up a day challenge on line and thought... wow that is a good idea. So today I am going to do....FOUR push-ups. and I'll add one everyday. By the end of the month, I should be much better at push-ups.

25 lb prizes are still tied! if you haven't voted, please do so!

Goals for Next Week:

  1. One Zumba Class
  2. Three Gym visits
  3. Journal food everyday
  4. Stretch once a day. 


  1. Just remember to stay positive even if you gain a little, don't give up I know you can do it :) also remember once you start building muscle it will look like from a scale standpoint that your not losing because muscle weighs more the fat....



  2. Hey I'm right there with you on the push-ups fail.

    I generally consider myself a fairly strong chick, and cooking is hard work that takes a lot of upper body strength and stamina. But I bet your 3 push-ups would best me. seriously.

    So be happy you are on the path to more, and keep it up. You know you're on the right track if you can lose weight during turkey day!

    <3 yoooouuuuu!
