SDtS Mission 101: Week 2

This week was really hard on some, while others excelled. Such is life, I guess? Maybe that is directly linked to how much people love their halloween candy? (kidding) But seriously - get it out of the house! =)

Regardless of if you had a big loss, or made your goals 100%, you are conscious of trying to make better choices - right? What more can any of us ask? Well- I would probably ask for french fries and pizza to be calorie and fat free, if I thought it would do any good. I should amend it to - what more can we ask of ourselves? Identify an area we'd like to work on, and be conscious of trying to improve. We can do this! Stay with it! Share your questions or victories on the Facebook wall as you have them. Check it often to help others, and provide support. We have like 40 people here! Let's use the big number in our favor for once! Let's rock this SH*T for realz, y'all!!!!
  • Lose ____ pounds to get to 101 total LBs lost (still unknown - still have to find a scale for larger than average measuring. aka: my bod)
  • 5 days a week of weights & 40 minutes of cardio + 1 day of 60 minutes cardio (YES!)
  • Track all calories eaten (still BOO!! Major opportunity for improvement)
  • eat within calorie range (still BOO!! Major opportunity for improvement)
  • OLD GOAL I FORGOT TO SHARE: No booze (yes!)
  • No caffeine (I think NO caffeine seems a bit excessive. I should make it "cut down on" caffeine, which would then be a victory!)
Before I get to all of the results for this week - I have some new people to introduce. We had one drop out, so luckily we had a few to replace him.

The updates are put in (parenthesis) behind the original goals. RNR=Results Not Reported.

I do this every yr and say I won't do it next year!! Tired of the up and down all of the time. I also want to be sure to exercise at least 4 times a week. Would like to try and start doing some exercising in the morning instead of at night but not sure I can do this....not a morning person.

Didn’t think I had a bad week of eating but I lost 0 this week.  The sleep front wasn’t much better, I was near 7 hours maybe 2-3 nights but I don’t think I got 7 any. Maybe my goal for the time being should be to not gain weight. Just kidding. I’ll keep trying.
  • Lose 25 pounds (Lost .6 pouns for a total of 5.6 pounds)
  • walk 10,000 steps a day (RNR)

  • SHARE: Although it is a dissapointment,  it is not a surprise to me that this was not a great week.  Although I did meet my  goal of 4 days of exercise, I made terrible food choices.  It was a super stressful week and without making excuses I admit to just eating crappy.  Today is a new week will be better

    1. I didn't gain any weight.
    2. I did everything I was supposed to do (exercised and ate healthy meals)
    3. I fit into 2 pairs of jeans that I could not fit into before and one pair of work pants is just too big now.  I think I'll start getting rid of the too big clothes instead of keeping them around.  No need to hang on to clothes "just in case I gain weight"...don't gain weight Meg! (that's my little talk to myself)
    4. Trainer Ryan told me I was starting to "lean out" again.  YIPPEE!

    P90X is hard, but acheiveable.  Now I need to buy dumbbells because I just don't like the bands:(

SDtS Waseca Chapter (SHOUT OUT!!)

  • did well on fruits and veggies
  • SHARE: It is with a heavy heart, and an even heavier bottom :)  that I am responding to you.  The glow of last week (eating well, exercising, walking around the lake, etc).  are in the distant past.  Anyway, not horrific, but not what I would have loved to report. I won the schools "Smart Ones" weekly challenge.  We weigh in the closet of a Kindergarten room on Tuesday mornings and perhaps I was riding the wave of that so that I didn't do as well.  Well no big excuses for the week-end so here's hoping for a better week ahead of me.
  • QUESTION:Does RNR mean results not reasonable or Remus naughty remus??
  • ANSWER: nothing that fun. it stands for "Results not Reported"
  • Gained 1 pound for a total of up .6 pounds
  • SHARE: Just a bump along the road
  • Lost 1.5 pounds
  • SHARE: Like you have been on diets forever!! ( I could be the lecturer for Weight Watchers!!!!!!!!) Last July I turned 59 and decided my motto for this year was to be Slim and Sexy by Sixty.  When Deb talked to me about your group, it seemed like this could be the motivation and accountability I need (and it doesn't cost anything!)!!  It took me a while to get going but now I'm ready.
