Fit4Life Friday - Week 9

This was another wasted week. I started out Monday with gusto like no ones business and that's pretty much where it stopped. Monday we made it to the gym and I walked 1 mile on the treadmill and rode (I'm not sure why they call it "riding" a stationary bike - to me riding is what you do in the car - it takes little to NO effort, that dang bike is WORK I tell ya, anyway) 3 miles on the bike. I felt so good, not so much healthy, but good that I'd accomplished that goal. Then Tuesday hubby didn't get home from work until 7:30, well that's too late to head to the gym and then Wednesday, I don't remember there was something and then last night we had a birthday dinner with our Sunday School class... With all that being said, I guess I'm glad that I'm down .4 pounds this morning. It could have been a lot worse.

Here are my stats and goals for this week:

Week 9 Stats:
Starting weight 6/1/07: 175 lbs.

Current Weight: 161.2lbs.

Weekly change: -.4lbs.

Total loss: 12.8lbs.

Goal weight: 145 lbs.

Weight Loss Goals:

  • Back to drinking at least 48 oz. of water a day (why is this SOOOO hard?!?!)
  • Get back to journaling and counting points - I've done pretty well with this I just need to get back down to the right amount of points
  • Gym - Go 3 times - I've scheduled Monday, Tuesday and Thursday that way nothing gets in the way. I'm going even if I have to go by myself!!!
  • Lose 2 pounds (this will get me below the 1/2 way point!!!!)

I'm pretty much keeping the same goals I've had for the last 2 weeks. I'm keepin' them until I master them...

Better Me Goals:

  • Continue DAILY devotions - I'm leaving this on, but I've got this one down!!! and what a reward
  • Back to chore routine (a few things a night, don't let it all pile up) - Why is this one SOO hard, too?!?!
  • Get back on board with the budget and tracking expenses - I am taking the Financial Freedom class sponsored by Crown Financial tomorrow at our church, so maybe I'll be inspired to take this goal and run, fast!!

I am making a pledge right here and now to get back on tract this week, NO excuses, NO distractions, NO crap... Please ask me during the next week how I'm doing, PLEASE keep me accountable. I'm likely to do better if I'm disappointing someone besides myself. My personality tends to want to please others.

Thanks to Deedra for hosting and keeping up motivated.

I'm sure you'll do better next week...I seem to have a good week followed by a bad week and then another good week. It's cyclical! We're looking forward to seeing you guys tonight- we went to the Wally World and got yummy burgers and buns (I didn't check nutritional information...) *hugs*

You worked out once...that's better than nothing! Scheduling it in is a great idea. I schedule it first thing in the morning. My alarm goes off and I roll onto the treadmill (ok, I put on some clothes first). If I don't do it then, it doesn't happen.
Have a great week, I'll try to check in on you!

I'm right there with you! I have gained back some and water is sooo hard. I just don't like it. I have gotten away from writng down points practically all summer. You have inspired me today.

At least you did get in some excercise, that's better than nothing. Hope you have a better week next week.

God Bless
