Fit Friday week #5

Oh this week flew by. Before I knew it I was weighing in, finishing week five with success and not sure how it happened. Now I am embarking on week 6....last day of week six is a dangerous's turkey day. Oh but I have a plan for that day and next week I will share with you when I review that week if I followed my plan.

So back to week 5. Week 5 was filled with stress and sick babies. One baby even had a trip to the ER. So this tired mommy didn't do so well tracking her food with pencil and paper (computer time limited as mine is still down) but I did make a conscious effort to pick up and eat good foods. I did some exercising but it was less than I had wanted to do. Heck, what can you do but roll with the punches when you get get socked.

So on with the success and let's leave the bad behind. I am down 1.2lbs this week. So the .2 I went up last week went bye bye (magically I suppose.) I am happy with the loss and am now at 6.2 total lost since I started weight watchers. I am nine pounds away from my 10% target weight loss. When I reach that loss, I then sit down and make a goal weight loss to strive for. I figure once I get to that 10% loss I am another 25lbs away from where I want to be. Oh, I am starting to feel the excitement. The best part is 9lbs is less then 10lbs so even speaking the weight I need to lose to get to the 10%loss sounds better. It sounds like something that could happen by Christmas. I can do it, I can do it! Oh how nice it would be to be a visible 15lbs lighter in Christmas photos. How nice will it just feel to be 15lbs lighter. Can you feel my excitement building? I hope so because I am going to DO IT!!!

See you all next week for week 6 in review of Fit Fridays.

Oh yeah...I am running in the RTW this Saturday for the third time. I can not believe it!

Great Job this week. I'm sorry your kids were sick - My daughter was up all night last night. This is the first time she's ever been sick so I'm watching her like a hawk. Good luck this week!

Great job!! It's hard to squeeze the exercise in when the kiddos are sick. I had that challenge last week. Sounds like you STILL did amazing. Good luck this week.

Yay for you ML! I am so envious of your ability to put your mind to it and just do it. After I had the babies and had lost all that weight, I was so pleased with myself (even if it was just because I was so sick...I still lost it!), and now I have gained a little bit back. I sure wish I had it in me to workout. We even have a home gym in the garage...but do I use it? Nnnoooooooo!
