Power Of One Weigh In

Power of One Challenge

Time for the week's weigh in with the Sisterhood.
I didn't handle this week very well. I let my frustration over my lack of progress get me down and I just didn't really pay much attention to my eating. I did change up my exercise routine, so I think I did that part right. I have been sticking to drinking my water. I have gotten to the point where I feel dehydrated without at least 100 ounces of water every day.

Anyway, here are the stats for today.

Starting weight on 3/25/09: 226.8

Starting challenge weight: 196.0
Last week's weight: 197.0

This week's weight: 196.8

So...I did lose .2 pounds this week which is at least moderately encouraging. Considering I didn't monitor my food intake this week and I over-indulged in chocolates and mexican food for Valentines Day I'm pleased that I lost ANY weight. I did change up my exercise routine and even went to Zumba class on Saturday and then again today. The jury is still out on whether or not I "like" it, but it is different and that is what I am looking for right now....anything different to change my body and make it start losing weight again.

So...for this coming week I am going to start logging the food and making sure it is within the calorie allotment for my goals. I will continue drinking my water and I'm also going to continue changing up the exercise routines. I started working out with my EaSports Active2 game and I'm doing the 9 week program where I do the workouts 4 times a week on the hard setting. If I do this in addition to the classes at the gym and do some of the other games I have maybe my body will start changing again. I'm also going to run "some". I have found that I don't want to run all the time but occasionally it is freeing when the weather cooperates. My seasonal allergies are starting to be a challenge so I will just have to do this when I can.

I'm hoping that by next week I will start seeing some results from the changes I started making this week so that I can end this challenge weighing in at least a little bit less than when I started it. Although it isn't feasible for me to meet my goal weight for this challenge I do want to weigh LESS than when I started it 7 weeks ago!!

Hope ya'll have had a good week!

Good goals!

Is the 9 week EASA2 harder than the 3 week?

Great job Ann and I think you have set really good goals. You won't have any problem finishing less than you started! Keep up the great work.

you have made the necessary changes to your exercise now do the same thing with your eating. Good job on increasing the water...that alone made a big difference for me! You'll get there...just a little bump in the road right now!
