Total Loss: 28.4 pounds in 26 weeks

Comments: It’s sad to see my thirty pound loss drop back into the twenties, but what’s done is done and it’s time to undo the damage. I did exercise this week, but my food choices were just WRONG. No excuses, just wrong, wrong choices. I had a way-too-fun weekend, complete with boys night out to the bar and a trip to the movies to see The Crazies with lots of popcorn. Those choices, plus others, results in two pounds gain! Now I gotta take that off. Hopefully the WEEKEND WARRIOR challenge this weekend will help jumpstart that! (Will post info on that tomorrow, along with my goals!)

Here’s a quick update on The Perfect Ten challenge:

Walk/Jog 100 miles (by the end of the challenge)–I added 8 miles to the challenge, making my total 76. In my defense, I was sick the first part of this week and it really hurt my exercise ability. I still did a little something each day except Monday, but not as much as I usually would.

-Do strength training/toning exercises three times a week (via DVD’s and the Wii Biggest Loser game)–Only once this week.

-Complete 3 sections of my big writing project–I didn’t get any writing done this week. (Lots of reading, tho!) Can I just say EVERYONE should read the book “Shutter Island”…it’s SO FREAKING GREAT!!!!

-Lose ten pounds–How about GAIN TWO? ugh!

-Set at least one goal for the day, no matter how small, and reach it, everyday. –I did this everyday except Sunday, where I lived in hangover land…no goals there!

-Drink at least 80 ounces of water each day–6 out of 7 days, one more than usual!

Something unknown about myself: I love getting mail. It’s the first thing I do when I get home is check the mailbox. Even if it’s a bill, I still enjoy getting something.  Especially if it’s a package from Amazon or Ebay!! 🙂

Hope everyone is doing well. Here’s to next week reporting a LOSS!!!
