Default W.O.W. Memorial Day Challenge 2010~Week 6

Time flies when we are having fun right? I am so suprise at how fast time goes as I get older.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a better weekend than I did WEED wise. A new week starts today~my promise to myself~get back on track!

Week 1: 142
Week 2: 140
Week 3: 142
Week 4: 140
Week 5: 142
Week 6: 141

I really expected the scale to be higher. I need to run, but there is no chance of working out this week, maybe not even tomorrow.

Popcorn: Ive been missing you!

mjluva: I know how frustrated you are, believe me. just keep on pushing.


So far so good with food still no workout but I am feeling good. My water is so so, which is my own fault for skipping my breaks. I will get it down though.

Hi Jeni, Popcorn & MJ! Last week, I was out of town for work, ate alot more than I should, dud not exercise and put on about 3 lbs. It is my TOM though so maybe it was not a full 3 lbs. Still, I'm about where I was when I started this challenge. Still almost 3 weeks to loose though. We can finish strong girls! Anyone with me for a 3 week push? Jeanette

I didn't do well at all yesterday. Didn't even do the green tea.

Let's give this another whirl.
I am with all of you - I think this is hormonal based this week.
I will try to get my head into this. Thanks for the welcome back.


Today's WEED -

W - 64 oz.
E - 15 minutes on the treadmill
E - 1200 - 1400 calories
D - try to do the green tea at bedtime

Didn't get a chance to check in yesterday. I am frustrated with my numbers but have to look at the overall picture which is that I have averaged about 2 lbs a week since I started this journey on February 25th (today the scale said 235, but I put my Monday weight below). I know I am doing the right things (food, water and exercise) and have a calorie deficit every day (my GWF average deficit is about 1000 calories a day since I got it on April 23). I really wanted to be out of the 230's by Memorial Day, but not sure i'm gonna make it.

Saturday I will be walking in a charity walk - my first one since I started getting in shape. It's two miles. Nobody has signed up to donate money and sponsor me, but I'm gonna walk anyway. I guess I will sponsor myself.

Week 1: 247.4
Week 2: 241.2
Week 3: 240.5
Week 4: 236.4 (the 220's are in sight)
Week 5: 235.6 TOM
Week 6: 237 (Monday, May 10)

W: At least 48 ounces of water
E: Minimum of 30 minutes 5 days a week
Walk at least 1 mile daily (working up to 2 miles for a 2 mile charity
walk on May 15)
E: Calories within 1600-1800
D: Get my grill put together this week for a family cookout we're having on Saturday.

Week 1- 178.6
Week2- 175.8 That looks pretty, huh??
Week 3- 181. REALLY??? how can that happen??
Week 4- 179.6 This is crazy.
Week 5- 179.6 It is also TOM.
Week 6- 178.2 Same ole tune.

I have a good workout schedule going strong. MW I run with one friend. TTH do a DVD with my other friend. Then on the weekends I get in a long run or walk. I feel good. Not stressing about the scale (okay, trying not to).

Week 4: 177.2
Week 5: 176.2
Week 6: 175.8

Well it's not as low as I was hoping for today, but I ate a fairly large dinner last night. I did not go over in calories though. But I've found that when I eat later at night, my weight stays higher in the morning. I'm hoping tomorrow morning it will reflect the fact that I stayed OP for the majority of this week. Today I'm going eat at IHOP, I love the fact that you can substitute for all the healthier options. My meal there usually stays around 500 calories Have a great day everyone!

WEED for today:
W: 64+ oz.
E: 100 crunches, 20 push-ups, 20 lunges, 20 squats
E: 1600 cals
D: Get my oil changed

Zoo- So are you pretty much sticking to 1600 calories. That is what my Gruve tells me to eat, but that seems really high. Whatcha think?? Is it working for you. Seeing as we are about the same weight, I am extremely curious.
