SDtS Mission 101: Week 4

Who can believe we are already on our fourth week!?! I guess time really does fly when you're having fun, and getting healthy? Yes. It is true. 

I want to thank all of you, again, for going through this with me. I set goals for myself all of the time, and follow through on them......not all of the time. Having you guys doing this with me, is helping me stay on task! I appreciate all of you. A lot. You are all fantastic. Please remember that - regardless if you hit 100% on all of your goals each week. I've said it a thousand times, and will continue to say it: if you make one change, you are doing something! Don't give up! We can do this! GO TEAM!

I am going to start something on Monday. For those of you that use Facebook, and have exercise as part of your goals - I am going to start reporting what I did for exercise each day, and would like you guys to do that same. I am thinking that maybe the gratification of getting to actually write it somewhere will help me want to do it? And maybe you guys, too? I figure it's worth a shot! =)

Now let's go earn some buns of steel!

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

  • (RNR) for week 4

  • Lose 10 pounds (Gained .2 pounds for a total loss of .6 pounds)
  • Run at least 10 miles per week (Ran 5.5 miles)
  • SHARE: realized I cannot get lazy on the weekend b/c it's too hard to catch-up during the week! I WILL do better next week!
  • Lose between 10-15 pounds (RNR)
  • SHARE: Ok, so I still haven't weighed myself and I know I have too....i am telling myself I have to do it tomorrow morning. So that is the plan! This week was a good one for me! Yeah!! I exercised 3 times and even thought it wasn't my goal of 4, it was so much better than my previous weeks and even though it was a super busy week I still fit it in. I feel very good about that! I still have not attempted a morning workout and still find myself working out at 9pm. I am just not a morning person but would love to be done with my workouts right away. Anyone else not a morning person but still manages to make the am exercising work? I have tried in the past and I just can't get into it the way I do at night! I also did far less snacking at night this past week and that is always my downfall. So all in all a very good week! Keep it up everyone! :)

  • SHARE: I'm bummed because being on vacation this week is not going to help my next week numbers!

  • Lose 25 pounds (Lost .6 pounds for a total loss of 8.2 pounds)
  • walk 10,000 steps a day (6 days + weather = YES!) 
  • SHARE: I think I need to stop weigh myself everyday. It can be so frustrating. Wednesday morning I would've been down 10 lbs (total), but Friday morning I find that I'm only down 8.2 (-0.6 for the week). I'm cool with it. It's a loss but what a tease!
    We're having a steps challenge at work, so I've gotten 10,000+ steps everyday (except last night, it was SNOWING! Gonna have to break out the treadmill...pew.) This past week I had a biometric screening which provided me with some fruitful information. They do it every year (at work) so I'm hoping to (or I WILL) change some of those numbers.

I did not work out and that is one goal for this weekend for sure. I'm finding it really hard with working all day and random nights... softball was all planned so I want to start planning working out too. Maybe that will help. I did loose another pound so I'm down two total :-)!

  • P90X....I might need to put this on the shelf for now.  I don't feel like I'm getting enough cardio with it. It's a great workout, but when I'm weight training with my trainer already, I think I need more cardio.  At least until I get to my skinnier self.

Eating…definitely need some improvement in this category – so hard to avoid that darn candy jar and lot’s of leftover Halloween treats. Water…still needs improvement, but most days I got at least 6-8 glasses, so happy about that. Wine…still a weakness, but getting better. Have only had a couple glasses of wine this week (and it was red wine…isn’t that good for the heart??)

  • Lose 10 pounds (Same weight as last week for a total loss of 1 pound) 
  • SHARE: Well the scale is not budging...maybe it's broken? Hahaha. More activity this week, but still a hard time with those darn sweets ! I feel like I need to give them up cold turkey, but I just don't feel quite ready to do that yet! I bought mini peppermint patties and that may be a good snack for those that have self control. They are low fat and dark chocolate, but I can't stop at just 1! Any tips from anyone else with a wicked sweet tooth?
