Been a Busy Week

Friday, October 03, 2014

Tuesday was my anniversary



Wednesday we had a last minute dental appointment. I'm so grateful for the dentists who help us missionaries out.

Thursday (technically yesterday, but still today to me)
I spent just trying to catch up and prepare for a trip into nature for the weekend. I'm sure it'll be great and I'll be glad I went, but I'm a bit apprehensive about riding out and hanging out with folks I don't know all too well. But as I said, I'm really sure it will be great.

I'm down 2.4 lbs. I'm in shock. I can now get that reward I set up for when I lost 2 lbs. Can't buy them now, but at least I have my permission to get them. ;). These are they:

Second, the trip sounds wonderful. Breath deeply, relax, and enjoy. I can totally relate to you. I always get apprehensive towards a trip.

Third, emoticon for your weight loss emoticon emoticon

    My kids had the Staedtler pens. They come in 2 widths. We got much use out of them :)
Happy anniversary.

A Goal Getta 4 Life

Friday, September 26, 2014



My team, GG4L got a FB page so we could be able to quickly communicate with one another. We haven't been on SP in a while. The above was the meme I created for our FB page.

I'm trying to be a Goal Getta 4 Life, but this week's weigh-in is not very reflective of this. I only lost .2 lb. That's not 2 lbs, but .2 lb.

So my goal for next weigh-in is a 2 lb loss. It has to happen since this week, for the 5% Challenge, is portion control in addition to a maximum of 120 minutes that can be counted towards team points. We get 5 points for each meal (up to 15 points) in which we measure everything. I hate measuring, but I'll do it for the Awesome A's. Saturdays will be hard because of church potluck, but I'll do my best to measure breakfast and the evening meal for the Awesome A's to get those points.

Hoping you have your goals aligned for next week and you have plans to carry them out!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Kels, I hate measuring too. But worst of all, I hated tracking everything I eat. I think I still do, but turns out after the Summer 5% challenge, I had to track for the team, and surprise! It was the one thing I needed to see the scale moving in the direction I wanted. Unbelievable to me, but now I'm a tracking freak by choice.

Hang in there, and try tracking too. Best wishes.

BTW, did I ever tell you how spectacular your memes are?? emoticon

I Know My Numbers, Do You?

Saturday, September 13, 2014



So I'm back, again....
I'm getting ready to join the 2014 Fall 5% Challenge Team.
A lot has happened... Things are still happening... But I'm a bit more "settled," and a lot less "frazzled."
I'm just planning on taking it one day at a time.


I'm reading the above. I don't like calorie counting and this is the way into portion control but out of calorie counting!


This is my current lock screen wallpaper. If I lose 2lbs by my next weigh in, I have my own permission to buy them :)

Now onto the numbers:

First day of the Fall 5% Challenge: Saturday, 09/20/14 weigh in

The last weigh in for the 5% Challenge: 11/15/14

A) How many pounds will you lose to achieve your 5% weight loss?

To calculate your 5%:

Current weight 168.6 X .05 = 8.43 pounds

168.6 - 8.43 = 160.17 (Target Weight)

By When: November 15, 2014


Current Weight: 168.6 pounds
Target Weight: 160.17 pounds
By When: November 15, 2014

B) Update your data in My Trackers/Start/Edit Goals (under Track Weight button), Set Your Weight Goal

Current Weight
Target Weight
By When

Then click on 'Save my changes'.

C) Please update your Calories to Burn This Week (Exercise Plan)

My Trackers/Start/Edit Goals (under Track Fitness button)

Complete your Edit Fitness Goals and remember to hit 'save' which will take you to the Track Your Fitness screen. Scroll down and you will see your weekly exercise minutes and calorie burn.

You may want to check this to estimate calorie burn

sparkpeople.com/resource/calories_burned
_list.asp

After you update your weight goal and date, and your exercise Plan, your daily calorie requirements are automatically updated.

D) Now in Start/ Calories In & Out

Calorie Goal 1320 -1720
Minus Eaten Today - 0 Equals Calories
Remaining Today 1320 -1720 Calories
Burned This Week/Weekly Goal 2806/2160
Goal to go from 169 to 160 by 11/15/2014

5% Challenge Commitment - Plan

So with 60 minutes daily exercise (from fitness plan), and eating between 1,320 - 1720 calories a day, I will lose 9 pounds in 8 weeks.

I'm Still Here!

Friday, May 16, 2014

I've been really busy... too busy to go to the gym and walk... but I've been active.

The following pictures are from the exhibit that I was in charge of bringing to San Francisco. We had it displayed on Treasure Island.





Now we are busy engaged in an evangelistic series. 5 nights a week we are at the Marine's Memorial Theater. It's been hectic, but worthwhile.



My current plan is to spend 6 out of 7 days in the gym. I want to walk at everyday if possible. Walk definitely on the day that I don't go to the gym.

So I haven't fallen completely off the wagon... I'm around, just super busy!

Thanks for stopping by!
