Wednesday Check-In: Holiday Hoedown

Holiday Hoedown Challenge

Definitely wasn’t looking forward to this check-in. The last week has been a HUGE rollercoaster of emotions so very rarely was the challenge even on my radar (sorry ladies!). I feel bad for my team because I feel like I really let them down this week. My mind was elsewhere but I’m determined to not make it a repeat performance.

Here are the results of my challenge goals:

  1. Stay off the scale except on Wednesdays for check-in! This is all about non-scale success, yo! – Check. Only hopped on this morning.
  2. Operation Quit-Soda-For-Good. Its time to get rid of the chemical-ridden deliciousness for good! There are plenty of other delicious drinks that are actually GOOD for me that I could be drinking! Not too successful. Need to kick it up a notch, especially since I am at home now.
  3. Do low-impact cardio 3-4 times a week. N/A
  4. Add strength training and/or yoga, 2-3 times a week. N/A. – But just to prove that I’m back on the wagon – I started off my day with yoga this morning!

So onto the weigh-in!  126.4 so a gain of 1.4 over Thanksgiving week. Boo! I’m not very happy about it at all. My mom worked like crazy to make Thanksgiving totally gluten-free so I didn’t have to miss out on anything! Which I don’t necessarily think was in my favor! LOL! But I was very grateful of all of the work that she did for me (since I’m the only Celiac in the family). But next week that number will be back down darnit!

Here are my stats:

Starting weight: 164.4

Challenge starting weight: 125.4

Last week’s weigh-in: 125.0
Today’s weigh-in: 126.4
Change: +1.4

Challenge Change: +1

Overall Change: -38

    its so hard when someone goes out of their way for you, there is no choice but to partake My MIL always makes me mac and cheese b/c she knows how much i love it. Very bad for the waistline though.

    My roommates and I had a N0-soda November. Since today is December first, we were allowed to have it again for the first time in a month. I can honestly say I was kind of indifferent about it. In fact, the carbonation was weird/gross.

    Don’t beat yourself up, it was a holiday and one meal! You can give up soda, I have something I need to give up and I know I need/have to, I am just scared to. Next week will be awesome for you!

    I didn’t know you were Celiac! I’m not officially diagnosed, but going gluten-free helped relieve a lot of issues for me.

    My families didn’t actively try to make things friendly for me, but I could eat the turkey and several veggies… and I didn’t need the sweets. 🙂

    You didn’t let us down! Is everything back on track now?

  6. Khara says:

    I’d say that’s pretty darn good for the Thanksgiving Holiday, not to mention your tough week!

  7. You definitely did NOT let us down, hon. Take it one day at a time. You’re doing fine.

    You bet that number will change next week! You have done such an amazing job Jamee – In the face of many obstacles. I am so glad that you are at peace with your medical decisions. Have been thinking about you so much and am glad that you had a wonderful holiday.


I love hearing from you!
