Wednesday Check-in: Holiday Hoedown #3

Holiday Hoedown Challenge

Going to make this post short and sweet as I’m not feeling too hot today. Felt a little better about hopping on the scale today but I’m not thrilled about the week’s results as far as goals go.

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. Scale read 125!
  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! Decent. I’m trying to swap out soda for healthy juices. I know water is best but baby steps right?
  3. Do low-impact cardio 3-4 times a week. I really overdid it last Wednesday in yoga (which I was so proud to post about) so I could hardly move the rest of the week which coupled with the really cold temps was not good. I haven’t gotten to the point of understanding my body’s limits yet. You would think after 7 years I would get it but I don’t. Why  on earth I thought it would be a great idea to do a 40 min yoga video (Jillian Michaels no less) and think that my body would be ok was beyond me. So I didn’t get the minutes I would have liked.
  4. Add strength training and/or yoga, 2-3 times a week. See Above.

Here are my stats:

Starting weight: 164.4

Challenge starting weight: 125.4

Last week’s weigh-in: 126.4
Today’s weigh-in: 125
Change: -1.4


Challenge Change: -.04

Overall Change: -39.4
