Fit4Life Friday - Week 2

It's Friday and you know what that means, time to weigh in and set new goals!!

I'm really pumped, I got on the scales this morning and they reported 166.6, Woo Hoo!! That's a loss of 3.6 pounds in one week!! I'm so motivated now.

Week 2 Stats:

Starting weight: 175 lbs.
Current Weight: 166.6lbs.
Weekly change: -3.6lbs.
Total loss: 8.4lbs.
Goal weight: 145 lbs.

Let's review week 1's Weight Loss Goals:
Drink at least 48 ounces of water a day - this still needs some work

Stick to my weekly menu plan - we get a gold star this week, the only night that was changed was last night and instead of breakfast we had BLT's with home-grown tomatoes

Write down everything that I eat with its point value / only eat my 22 points a day - this went well until Wednesday...

Get to the gym 3 times per week - yeah, not so much, haven't darkened the doors this week

Now, let's review week 1's Better Me Goals: (these are some things that I’ve been struggling with and could use some encouragement with)

Being faithful with my daily quiet time. (not letting other things take this time away from me) - this went well for several days straight then fell off for a few days, but I'm back on it strong

Using my “at home” time more wisely: doing a few things each evening after work, rather than cramming ever thing into Saturday and Sunday and never feeling like I have a day off. - not so much, dirty laundry is piled up to be washed, clean laundry is waiting patiently to be put away, floors haven't been swept. I totally failed on this goal this week.

Being a better steward of the money and talents that God has blessed me with: setting and following a monthly budget, volunteering at church, etc. I started teaching the 1 and 2 year old Sunday School class last Sunday. What an experience. I'm really enjoying this and can't wait for more. Money and budgeting hasn't been bad this week.

On to Week 2's goals:

Weight Loss Goals:
  • Keep drinking at least 48 oz. of water a day

  • Stick to my menu plan and 22 points a day

  • GYM (go there and workout)

Better Me Goals:

  • Continue with quiet time

  • Work on nightly chores

  • Continue with budgeting

Hope you all have a great weekend. And I can't wait to see every one's progress with their Fit4Life Friday goals!!!

As always a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to DEEDRA for hosting Fit4Life Friday!!!

3.6 pounds this week is great. I am trying to stick to a menu plan also and I really think it helps. That way there is no eating something fattening because you can't think of anything else to make. Good job.

Way to go Michelle! Your goals are great. Especially teaching the 1 and 2 year old class! It's so hard to find people to teach in Preschool. I should know-I'm the Preschool Director at my church-Ha.
