weekly weigh in

Filed under: keeping it real, weigh in — karena @ 11:14 am

I could make all kinds of excuses, but the truth of the matter is my heart was elsewhere this week. I didn’t give my diet and exercise the attention it deserved. I didn’t put anything into it, and as a result I have nothing to brag about.

Last week: 163.0
This week: 163.0

I tend to be an all-or-nothing kind of person. I’ll devote myself completely to my latest passion, then kind of brush it aside when I get embroiled in something else. I can NOT let that happen this time.

So… my plan to combat my lackadaisical efforts… I will be tracking here, everyday, for the next week:

    what and how much I eat — knowing someone may be reading should help me stay on track!
    pedometer readings — 10,000 steps per day as a minimum.
    at least two weight workouts.
    push up challenge participation.
    sit up challenge participation.

**note: all this tracking will start tomorrow, because Wednesday is my “day off” so to speak!**



  1. Hey I can totally relate…I’m accepting my .2 loss for what it is! a loss…Tracking everything seems to help me too. I think I’ll try it too and see if it helps all of us!! I think we Blue Team members need that extra boost!!

    Keep working at it and we’ll find what works for us!!

  3. Thanks, Blue! I can’t say I’m upset. Upset with myself for not trying harder, certainly. But not upset with the results. I’m going to work much harder and stay accountable to you! Thanks for the support!

  4. if you don’t have a way of tracking i’d recommend

    they have a huge list of foods in their database. i’ve been using them since the first of the year (and its free!)

  5. It’s good that you maintained over the holiday and didn’t gain! That’s something to be proud of!!
