So far the super summer challenge has been great! It has really motivated me to do as many things on my lists as possible to rack up points. I may have to play around with my Mind points system because I am finding that with 2 kids they are a little harder to work in throughout the day. I did have some trouble yesterday getting some of my tasks done because we had a busy day. We have been looking for renters for the home we own in Grand Junction and we’ve been doing a lot of back and forth driving to show it to potential renters. The good news is that we found some great renters and they signed a contract today. One less thing to stress about right now (also, it looks as though there may be an actual VACATION in our future this year and I’ve been on the phone all morning trying to work things out. Haven’t been on vacation in almost 6 years! More on that later).
Here are the totals so far:
Totals so far:
See what I’m saying about the Mind points? I either need to think of more goals or increase the point value.
Now onto the meat of this post which is the weigh in! After last weeks disappointing gain, I was happy to see that the scale is going in the right direction this week. It makes a difference when you food journal and exercise.
Starting Weight: 282.8
Last Week’s Weight: 263
This Week’s Weight: 261.7
Total Loss: -1.3
Total Overall Loss: -21.1
Through all the weigh in’s I have learned one thing from them: I enjoy the small losses more than the big ones. Whenever you see a large loss you know it is mainly water weight and waste (unless you are on a seriously restricted food diet, which I am not). When you see a smaller loss you know that if you keep eating healthy and your body moving it stays off. Whereas water weight fluctuates frustratingly.
My main goal is to be losing 1 to 2 pounds a week and every time I see some sort of loss it makes me happy.
I think Lucy is the one taking my poundage away from me, she is a chunk:
