progress charts – The Shrinking Jeans of Thea


February 10, 2010 By thea

Oh my goodness, that challenge went fast!  I can’t believe that we are at the end already.

I weighed in at 155 this morning, which is down a pound from last week.  Woohoo!

The question is, how’d I do on my goals?

Goal 1: Maintain Weight Between 153 – 157 pounds — I did this one every week!  100% on this one, baby!

Goal 2: Run 3 days a week, at least 3 miles each time — I didn’t do nearly as well as I wanted to on this one.  I kept coming up with reasons excuses not to run.  I only did this 9 out of the 18 time.  50%…not that great.

Goal 3: No food after 9pm — I did pretty well with this one.  I met this goal 38 out of 42 days.  90% ain’t bad on this one and I definitely think it’s a habit.  I don’t even think about food at night anymore.

So, I’m thinking that means no yoga mat for me.  But that’s O.K.  I learned a lot this time around and I conquered 2 out of the 3 obstacles in front of me!

So how did you all do?  I can’t wait to hear!

I feel pretty good about myself, thankyouverymuch.

Despite spending last week in Disney World (and subsequent confessions), I weigh LESS than I did two weeks ago. I seriously couldn’t ask for much more than that.

Besides doing my best to stay on top of my goals (although I had a few slip ups last week), exercise is definitely becoming a more routine part of my life. On top of the running, I’m throwing in some yoga every once in a while and I’ve also started doing the Hundred Push Ups program again.

Is it wrong to see something as a necessary evil yet kinda enjoy it all at the same time?

Another thing that has helped? I’m getting more sleep. Thanks to my husband (I should probably write a post on that), I am in bed before midnight every night now. That makes such a huge difference in how I feel every day.

Anywho, this weeks weigh in puts me at 4 weeks on my maintenance ticker (see it over there on the right? I thought a butterfly was fitting).

One month down. Eleven to go.

Bring it.

This is my first official True Confessions.  I hope I don’t get too many Hail Mary’s…

  • We ate twice this weekend.  Both times involved me ordering something with heavy sauces, chicken tenders, and french fries.
  • I haven’t been keeping up with my Progress Chart on my personal site.
  • Today is the first time in 5 days that I’ve done the Wii Active.  Thankfully, it was kind to me.
  • I could’ve come in under 35 minutes on my 5k this weekend if I had walked for a mere 30 seconds less.  Kicking myself for that one.
  • One of the aforementioned chicken tenders meals was followed by a Peanut Butter Cream Pie chaser.  I did not share.
  • I’m falling back into the “eating after 9pm” habit.  Bad Thea.
  • I’m also not tracking.  Badder Thea.

I really need to stop having “Just one of those weeks” weeks!
