Wendesday Check-in: Power of One #5

Power of One ChallengeI feel much better about posting this week’s check-in. Today’s numbers 128.4! So I lost 2.6 lbs! I’m still a little higher than I want to be but I definitely feel a lot better about being back in the 120s. This challenge is definitely not going the way I have planned but I am determined not to beat myself up over it. Poor Abby has been sick 3 different times since this challenge started and taking care of her has definitely taken a priority.

I still haven’t updated my measurements because somehow my tape has gone missing but its on my shopping list for this evening!

Here are my goals for the challenge:

  1. Hit the gym on my lunch break at least 3 days a week. Got to the gym once this week but also walked with Abby on Sunday evening (after she got over her bug and before I came down with it).
  2. Remove all soda from my diet instead replacing it with water and other healthy drinks. Not completely gone but I have dramatically cut back and if I am drinking soda now it is at least diet.
  3. Prepare dinner at home at least 4 nights a week, trying a new recipe at least once. Decent on preparing meals at home but have not tried any new recipes. Have one on the schedule for this week though!
  4. Lose at least 5 inches overall throughout the course of the challenge. TBD

    Sounds like you are doing great! It’s really tough this time of year with all the sickies! My kids are forever playing with my measuring tape and it ends up in the strangest places!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one that ends up with a missing measuring tape! I think Abby liked it because it was retractable so she thought it was fun to pull out and then press the button!

    I’m glad Abby is feeling better. Great job on the loss this week. I would love to see the 120’s someday, but I don’t think that is in the cards for me.
