158.5 this morning.  I just started AF, so I wasn't sure if I'd be stuck at 159.5 again.  Or higher...!

Anybody up for a week long challenge???  I challenge everyone, for the week of 11/5 - 11/ 12 to drink at least 64 oz of WATER. Every day.  Lets make those scales move in the right direction!
 


 Great idea.  I KNOW I haven't been drinking enough.

my scale moved, and not in the right direction. 171.0 this morning.  Need to fill up my water bottle and get back to business.

Somehow it seems unfair that I am already coming back to premenstrual time... but definitely retaining water. I was so good this week, even with Hallowe'en in there! But still 161. Here's to a big downward shift this week! Enough already!

Monday weigh in: 149.2! biggrinbounce.gif

 

YAY! I don't know what I did this week to make this happen but... I am finally out of the 150's zone that I have been in for the past year or so. This is great motivation!

YEA!!!  Water challenge is a go! 

 

I'm 1/3 of the way into my day.  I've had one large bottle of water - 32 oz, so 1/2 way to goal for today for the challenge.  I think I'm going to try for an extra 32 oz since I ran yesterday and did boot camp this morning. thumb.gif

 

I'm also back to tracking this week for Weight Watchers.  I so want this weight off. I want to feel good.

 

Exercise plan for the week:

MWF: Boot camp (50 min-1hr)

T: kettle bell (40 min)

Th: cardio with a friend (1.5 hrs)

Sa: cardio (1.5 hrs)


My family: me jog.gif, dh geek.gif, ds reading.gif (11), dd1 hearts.gif (9), and dd2 energy.gif(3).

I did plyometrics this morning. Because I slept for 7 hours out of my day, I had only 48 ounces of water for the day... yeah, I will definitely try to drink more tomorrow. winky.gif

Woke up this morning with puffy hands.  Too much salt I think.  Today I got in 6 cups of water at school then another 4 cups over the course of the evening tonight so I will see what tomorrow's interim weigh in is.  Went walking tonight before and after I voted in our federal election.

Ladies, I think I'm bowing out on this challenge. I feel like I need give up the weight loss crusade and concentrate on eating healthy/working out regularly. The weekly weigh-ins are stressing me out and are pretty much staying the SAME no matter what I try. Grrrr. I guess I wont lose weight till I wean and I don't plan on that any time soon.

 

Good luck to all you lovely ladies! We are TTC in Dec. so I'll be awhile before I'm back on the weight-loss train! biggrinbounce.gif

I did U-Jam fitness last night and did only 10 minutes of ab exercises and 10 minutes of stretching. I was supposed to do 20 minutes of HIIT but my turbofire HIIT discs were not working. Weird... Anyways, the ab exercises were excruciating nonetheless.

 

Also, I just found out the bottles that I use for my water intake were 16 ounces each...not 8. So, I drank 128 ounces of water yesterday. lol. No wonder I constantly had to pee! lol.gif

Tilly, hope you will be able to have great luck with TTC. 

 

C is for cookie, that is too funny about you having to pee all day long.  Yeah, if you had that much water in one day, your bladder was working overtime.

 

AFM, I drank about 72 ounce of water today.  Hopefully tomorrow will be even better than today weigh in wise as I work toward losing weight for next week.
