Default W.O.W. Independence from Fat Challenge~WEEK 4

Good Morning everyone. Wow, I didn't even hear my alarm this morning, thank goodness for DH.

Work was good yesterday, today will be ok. WEED was also good.

Well no more workouts after work for me. Since school is over, Makenna will be at daycare and that means she will need some downtime before swim team practice. This was going to be my last week of afterwork workouts, but swim team doesn't move to mornings until next week. Then, Mak swims at 935 m-f annd Tommy swims at 530 m-th. busy me.

W 64 oz
E probably wont get a workout afterwork,
E below 1600
D enjoy my day

Morning everyone. Don't weigh in until tomorrow, probably on the higher side but we'll see. Back to work, ugh! Hope everyone had a great weekend - trying to make this week a good one

Jeni - just looking at your schedule makes me dizzy, I'm almost dreading when my kids are into sports - don't know where I'll find the time!

My goal for this challenge was to hit 40 lbs lost (216.5). It's pretty obvious that's not gonna happen. I knew it was a lofty goal - but it's my own fault that I haven't gotten closer to it (lack of consistent exercise).

Week 1: 228.4
Week 2: 228.6
Week 3: Not weighing this week ~
Week 4: 227.5 (was 226.5 on Saturday)

W: At least 64 ounces of water
E: Minimum of 30 minutes 5 days a week ~ STILL NOT DOING THIS ON A REGULAR BASIS
E: Average calories within 1600-1700 ~ do a better job of planning and getting in some variety
D: Make sure I have everything ready for the wedding cake I have to make for Saturday ~ a 6-tier cake. I'm a little nervous cause it's my biggest wedding cake ever and I don't get to start baking until Friday afternoon. Plus my new grandbaby is scheduled to be delivered by c-section on Saturday (wish I could be there).

Got a free trail week at a gym. I was nervous going in there. Some KID planned a workout for me. Warm up with a light jog-10min. DONE!!! Then 8 machines. DONE!!! Then finish with intervals on the treadmill for 20 min. I got up to 6.5 miles/hr. Not sure if that's good or not. DONE!!! wondering if I will have sore places tomorrow.

Jeni ~ I have never made a cake bigger than 3 tiers, so I'm a little nervous. I am hoping I can get off early on Friday so I can start baking (if I can't get off work by noon I'm gonna be in trouble). I may regret waiting until Friday to bake, but I don't have enough freezer space so can't freeze the cakes (and I don't really agree with freezing them) and want them to be fresh. Unfortunately the house I live in the oven is the original 1964 oven and does not bake eveningly so I will be doing all the baking at the bride's mom & dad's house (family friends - the cake is my gift). Twelve cakes - 6 two layer cakes. I will be so sick of cakes and icing. The wedding is at 4:00 pm on Saturday so I plan on starting to set up the cakes around 2:00 - I want to have it all set up at the reception by 3:30 in case people show up early - I think the wedding and reception are in the same room - the Grand Hall at Union Station (train station downtown Kansas City). I am excited to do such a big (and hopefully amazing) cake, but I am nervous about it.

I got part of my cake board centers cut and the ones I didn't get cut I got marked to cut. I also got my waxed paper circles cut and marked to cut the centers out. The cake I'm making has a center column construction so I have to cut the center out of each cake layer, each cake board and waxed paper circle. I have to place a waxed paper circle on top of each tier because I'll be placing fresh flowers on top of each tier. I really hope I get the holes in the exact centers or my cakes won't be centered on the stand. I also figured out I am short one size of cake board that I need - so I will have to make a trip to Hobby Lobby tomorrow night. I'm glad I figured that out today instead of Friday.

Daughter, WELCOME!! Here's the explanantion!!

W - Water intake. Set a daily goal for how much water you're going to drink. Although there is conflicting research as to how much to actually consume in a day, we all agree it is important to drink lots to stay healthy. So make it a goal!

E - Exercise. Efficient, healthy weight loss isn't going to happen unless you incorporate some kind of physical activity in your life. Everyone does it differently; some go to the gym, some work out at home, and some find ways to sneak in little bits of exercise all throughout the day. Set yourself a goal, even if it's small. Little bits done often WILL add up over time!

E - Eats. Being that we all have different eating plans and weight loss philosophies, this is sort of a wild card. Whatever plan you're on, set yourself a plan-appropriate daily eating goal for the day. Don't forget to make it specific!

D - Daily goal/Daily affirmation. This is another wild card. It doesn't even have to be weight-loss related! This is the spot where you list something you want to get accomplished. Or, you can use "D" for a a daily affirmation - it's an opportunity to say something good and positive about yourself. Sometimes, when we fall short - and we ALL do sometime - we are tempted to berate ourselves. Although it's good to recognize when we don't reach our goals, it's also good to remind ourselves of the awesome parts of ourselves. So go ahead and remind yourself of that in the "D" part of WEED.

W 100
Walking from and to the garage where my car has to go today!
E On plan
D Suck it up and keep going.

I also walk an average of 8 miles a day while at work. I do do 15 minutes of core training every morning before work. As far as my off days~I am going to be doing morning workouts again starting on Friday. I will run 2miles at 5~take my cardio sculpt class at 530-630. Then I will come home and refuel. Then I think I am going to get in an elliptical workout and strength training from 830-920. Thiss will be my mwf schedule. Tues, Thurs, Sat and Sun of my off days I will run 5k and strength train. I'm really just going back to the workout schedule I had Jan~March. I do want to start swimming so I may swim for 40 minutes in the mornings on Tues/Thurs/Sat

W~ 64 oz
E~Today is the last day of my 50 cardio/10 strength/15 core workout.
E~Less than 1500
D~housework.

Here's the cake I did for my daughter's wedding. I need to find pictures of the other wedding cakes I've done - I haven't done very many because I usually only do them for friends and family. They stress me out and I am definitely an amateur.
