Holiday Hoe-Down -Week One Weigh In

Holiday Hoedown Challenge

Well let's get right to it shall we? This week was HARD!! Mentally I was not in the game. I got some news/information from That Kid (20 year old son) 10 days ago that has hit me like a ton of bricks and has left my mind swirling in directions that it should not be swirling in. I know I can't change anything that he decides and eating more crappy food to "make me feel better" won't do anything but derail my efforts at weight loss. I "KNOW" this but I can't seem to make myself apply this knowledge.

So...last week's weigh in: 196.2

This week's weigh in: 197.6

Up 1.4 lbs...

I know there will be weeks when I won't lose much weight. I also know that there are weeks when I will have setbacks but this is just a sad display of my lack of effort.

I logged 575 minutes of exercise...My goal for this challenge is to exercise at least one hour per day. I didn't make that goal this week but I did get close and logged some great exercise minutes. For this week my goal will be to consciously eat only when I'm hungry...not whenever I "feel" like it and to eat my VEGGIES....I'm eating plenty of fruits just not veggies.

So I'm going to need some serious help this week from my "Lean Green Losing Machine" team and all my other sisters, so that I can indeed be a losing machine...and meet my goal for this challenge!

You might have gained this week but look at those minutes...that is a lot of minutes lady! And you are rocking that C25K training. Come back next week and kick some pounds to the curb! You can do it!

Hey Ann, sorry to hear about how your mind has been on something heavy. Keep up the good work with your exercise and positive outlook. You can do it!

Fantastic job on the exercise minutes logged, Ann! Don't sweat the scale too much, you know what to do to get that 1.4 back.

I hope everything is okay. If you need to chat, e-mail me (my name @ my blog). Remember though, that you can't change/control everything. But you can change/control your reactions. You are strong enough to weather whatever is going on, just believe in yourself!
