Another Weigh In - Shrinkvivor Week #3

It's time for this week's weigh in over at the Sisterhood. I struggled a lot mentally this week. Maybe because this weekend is my first 5K and I don't feel prepared. Maybe because this Thursday night is my last night to work and I get to go back to being a stay at home mom! Maybe my head just couldn't grasp that I had just lost over 7 pounds in one week. Who knows??? But regardless of these "mental" issues I managed to have a pretty good week.

Last weeks weight: 199.0
This weeks weight: 198.6

So that's only .4 of a pound loss but it is a LOSS and I will take it!

For this week's physical challenge we were to log our "exercise minutes". It didn't matter what kind of exercise as long as it was TRUE exercise. I didn't feel I had done very well with this but after adding it all up and averaging it I did over 1 hour of exercise per day! Considering everything else going on in my life I think that's pretty great!

Exercise logged: 432 minutes from Thursday to Tuesday night!

Non-Physical challenge for this week was to AVOID the Drive Thru -- NO FAST FOOD!!
This one was a REAL challenge for me a couple of times but I pulled it off! No Drive thru meals for me! YAY!! Think of all the calories/sodium I saved myself!

Anyway, overall it was a great week and I can't wait to see what new challenges Christy and Melissa come up with for us! GO TRIBE GREEN!! Will we win the Immunity Idol again???? Only time will tell!!
