Give Yourself The Best Gift Challenge Update #1

Action points ( Short versions)

  • I will eat out less. - So far, so good. I ate out once, pizza. It was within my calories though and I did eat out... 6 times less... this week. Consider this a great start. I've stayed within my calories every day so that's good too. not always great choices but it's a work in progress.
  • I will set a new goal.- My goal for September was to lose 6LBs. I'm unsure if I'll make it, but I've lost 5 already so  there is still hope!
  • I will workout. I will commit to 3 designated work outs a week.- WIN! Mega win! I have been working out 3 times a week and even then sometimes twice a day. I've finished my first week of the C25K, and have done some walking & joggings on top.
  • I will be more (pro)active.  - Definitely doing much better from the start with this one. Much better then I thought, My house is unpacked. Laundry is done ( which I NEVER do) and generally in life things are much more taken care of.
  • I will plan my meals in advance. - I have been doing it the night before ( which *I* do consider in advance.) I don't like to plan too far ahead because I never know what I will want to eat 3 days ahead of time. It's nice to wake up in the morning and not have to wonder what I should eat that day. I like having it there and I can tweak it as the day progresses.
  • I will try something new once a week. - Peaches. No thank you. Next week: Banana Bread.
  • I will be nicer to my husband. -I think I pass this one by default. he's been working late and he's gone when I wake up... and he's out of town for the weekend. 
Start weight - 165lbs
Current weight - 165lbs.


  1. You stayed the same and I gained. We have some adjusting to do!! Let's make this next week one with better news at the end of it. We will have to concentrate on some NSV's I guess. Take care.

  2. I've heard before that what I do to my body this week will impact my weight the following week, do you think that's true? You did awesome!

  3. Looks like you did well, stayed the same but good work outs. I bet you have a loss next week.

  4. That sounds like a great way to be nicer to one's husband. Maybe mine can start doing that. LOL

    I'm adding strength training this week- hope I survive! Good job this week!

  5. trying something once a week sounds like fun....there is a TON of stuff I don't like that I need to

  6. You are doing a great job on your goals! And that last goal is great, I should have set that as one of my goals! I bet it will be a challenge during the visit from TOM.
