I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who had a bad health week. My down fall started on Sunday. My birthday was Monday, but we celebrated with my parents on Sunday evening and you see all I wanted for my B-day was grilled chicken, potato salad and ice cream cake. And that's exactly what I got. So, every night this week I've had ice cream cake just before bed, well I can't let it go to waste, there are starving children in Africa, right?!?. So, the ice cream has lead to eating lunch out several days and having junk for dinner every single night (it's a vicious cycle, ugh). So I wasn't really surprised this AM when the scales said up 1.6 pounds. Truth be told, I was glad it was only 1.6 pounds!!! And after I'm done with the Lemon filled-power sugar covered donut I'm eating RIGHT THIS MINUTE, it's back on track.

Week 10 Stats:

  • Starting weight 6/1/07: 175 lbs.
  • Current Weight: 162.8lbs.
  • Weekly change: -1.6lbs.
  • Total loss: 12.2lbs.
  • Goal weight: 145 lbs.

Weight Goals: This week I'm not going to do bullet points, but rather an overall goal. GET BACK WITH THE PROGRAM!!!! It's as easy and simple as that!!

Better Me Goals: I volunteered to coordinate our extended session schedule at church, for those of you who don't know or have never heard it called this, Extended Session is the period of time during the worship service. We have to have something like 22-30 volunteers a week, YES A WEEK, just for your preschool department, birth - 4 year olds. I'd like my goal this week to be get all the paperwork together and put away. I'm working on a new directory of volunteers and trying to decipher what the heck I've gotten myself into. I'm really wanting to get all of this paperwork out of the way, b/c I'm starting a new Bible Study on Tuesday 9/18 and I want to be able to concentrate on that. Holy Cow, that was a long explanation for a small GOAL!

I hope you all have a wonderful week and don't forget to head over to Deedra's and check out every one's progress!!
