S-T-S Week of July 11th, 2011

Week of July 11th
Starting Data --Weight 227. 6 (down 7.4 # since start of challenge)
Body Fat 48.8% (up 0.8% since start of challenge)
Ending data 228.8 (up 1.4# from last week-WTH)

Update: I am up 1.4# from the previous week. It is upsetting but I will work thru this. I know that part of it is my food, not intense enough exercise, not exercising daily, plus it is that time of the month. I am still very frustrated. I am not giving up. Getting and staying healthy is a lifelong journey for me and this is just one moment in time in that journey. Again I will re-evaluate and fine tune what I need to do to reach and maintain my goals.

Nutrition-- Under calories as defined by My

Activity-- Gym. Swim. Walk. Weights 3 days a week. Cardio 15 minutes minimum every

Support-- Blog, talk to, post on FB my successes, setbacks, & failures. Read & comment on the blogs of others.

Fun--some TV time, some games on FB, QT with kids at movies, park, pool, etc.

Mini Updates on my progress----
07/11 Monday: Cal1740(a lil high), Exercise 55min cardio. Took super long nap. Lazy day overall. Commented one a few blogs.

07/12 Tuesday: Cal(1440). Exercise 35min cardio. No nap today. Check out my pics on FB. These came from pics that were taken in relation to an article done by an Associated Press Write. The article was about dealing with if children should be taken away from their parents if they are obese. Check it out on Yahoo. Definitely fun getting my opinion out there. Today my oldest daughter went to her 1st meeting at Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta. Due to her connection in their ads, they are really working with her. She had her 1st visit to the Health4Life. She met with the doctor, the nutritionalist, and the exercise specialist. They came up with small goals and now she has a focus for the next month. I want to be able to encourage her and support her the best I can. I really want us both to get this being healthy thing down.

07/13 Wednesday: 30 mins cardio and weight training.
07/14 Thursday: no gym
07/15 Friday: Wii fit 20min. Gym Cardio 40min
07/16 Saturday:90 mins cardio- Dancing. OMG Time of the month arrived. UGH.
07/17 Sunday: No exercise. Tried to eat healthy. Didn't drink enough water.

I went of Friday night with my girlfriends.
Here is a pic of me.


  1. It is frustrating when you post a small gain like you did. It will come off. Just keep on going strong. I have not lost an ounce for a long time. I finally stopped weighing in except for once a month. I am working hard at it, and think I finally found what will work for me. It is a process...

    So glad that you included a blurb about your daughter. I agree: if she can get healthier now she will be set up for life. It is for life you know.

    Have a great wek of STS!

  2. It's easy to feel like the week was wasted and it's going to take forever at this rate but it sounds like you know what the problem is so you will have to take your lumps and move on! I know I have thought about how I feel when I have a gain and even if I know it's my own fault I was counting on something magic to happen to make a loss show up - doesn't work that way. Straighten up and fly right and weight loss will happen! Glad you are not giving up - get mad and do this!

  3. Having a weight loss buddy will make this journey so great for you both. Enjoy!!!
    Take care and have a blessed week.

  4. I know how frustrating the gain for that time of the month can be, but you're doing the right things, it WILL come off!

  5. Hopefully the weight will bounce back next week, that happens. Make it a great week!! I'm working with my daughter too so I get it! We need to help them NOW.
