OK so that’s a picture of my scale this morning and I’m so happy that the scale is moving downwards.  I’ve had a few tough weeks but I’ve been doing great for 7 days in a row.  I know I won’t get to my goal for this months but that just gives me more reason to push harder for my August challenge. 🙂 

My Weight-In + Workouts


Hi all,

As you know last week  was my first week of my 6 week shred, so far so good but my calves were sore for three days due to the standing and seated calf raises.  It took a few days for the pain to go away.

It occurred took me that this workout would be difficult to follow if you don’t go to a gym or have access to all this equipment.

So for those of you who want to do your own version of a 6 week shred, break out your DVD exercise workout videos , or you can find some great full length videos online for free, youtube or my recent favorite is 
http:// www.fitnessblender.com they have some great body weight videos.

Here’s a 4 week workout plan and I think you only need bumbells.

Whatever you choose to do please join in and keep me company on this 6 week journey.  You can post your exercise of choice in the comment section.  Then I plan on posting weekly weigh-ins and you can post your weigh-in..

This week I’ve been battling something, a flu or cold not sure exactly it’s lingering around and I’ve been having some stomach issues (bloated, gassy, backed up etc).  I’m starting to wonder if I have a food reaction/allergy.

In the kitchen I’ve made some pretty good food choices followed by some pretty bad snack attacks.  😦   Well it was no surprise that the scale didn’t budge, I’m glad it didn’t go up.  This week I’m going to make it move downward…I promise 🙂

Fit for Fall Weight Loss Challenge ~ Week # 1~ Weigh-In


Well this first week started  off really badly even though I had great intentions of eating right and working out daily.
Monday night I was hit with the beginnings of a cold/flu.  My kids were so kind to share their germs with me 🙂
All I wanted was to stay in bed and drink tea and soup.  Mind you that staying in bed all day didn’t happen since my kids needed me as well, we drank  every type of herbal decaffeinated tea and chicken soup.

The only exercise I did this week was a spin class Monday morning and many trips to the pharmacy 😦

To my surprise I’m down 1.2 pounds this week!!  I guess a liquid diet is a great way to jump start a weight loss…LOL
