Update and Fitblogger

So, how did I do this weekend?
Yeah, not so great. But really not bad either. I worked my butt off on weddings on Friday and Saturday. For example of how much I work my butt off. I average 10 miles of walking  during a small wedding. The most I've seen is actually a 15 mile walking day due to a wedding. (yes I try to keep a pedometer on me)  I didn't do bad eating, but I didn't worry about counting my calories. I just tried to stay away from most foods. AND, I messed up and some drinks on Saturday. POO! I really wanted to try to stay away from it this month. Funny thing is that I didn't even think of my challenge. I can't do much about it now. But I have got to get focused again.

I stepped on the scale this morning to see if I messed up my entire week, and I saw a number that makes me really excited for Thursday's weigh in. I'm not going to tell you because it's not official, but if I'm good, I'll be seeing one of my goals. I'm not at the goal yet, but I'm close, and I REALLY want to see a certain number on Thursday. *fingers crossed*

So, how did I do this week? Can I just say AWESOME!!!! GO ME! GO ME! GO! GO! GO ME!
That's right I did great. I took my vitamins every day!! Every time I wanted to scream at my kids I just thought of how much I love them, and it made things easier to deal with. (well, they have attitudes like me, so sometimes it's a little crazy around here) So that was good. I did a few Sun Salutations during the week. I even started to do them during the day when my kids were driving me nuts! They like to try to do them with me, and it's very cute and funny. Sure does help with the entire "dealing with the temper tantrums" much easier!!! Oh yeah, and the kid's Temper Tantrums too. HAHAHAHA

So, the big question now comes down to; What am I going to add this week?
I really think I'm going to add another very simple, and yet very important goal for this week. I've got the Positive attitude, I've got the Vitamins, and now I'm adding the WATER. That's right. I need to drink three of my large jugs full of water every day. I know this is simple, but it's very important to me, and I don't think I've been drinking enough water lately. My biggest downfall is sweet tea. YUMMY!!! I use  Stevia as my sweetener (0 cal, and natural) and I've switched to decaf tea because I need to stay away from caffeine. So it's not bad, but I need to focus on my water intake.

So there it is. Adding my simple goal for this week. YAY!!!

Yea!!! Sounds like you're doing a great job! I'm still struggling with getting enough water. I'll be rooting for both of us this week!

My husband recently changed his attitude to water and has replaced his coffee with water and herbal tea.

He has been AMAZED at the positive results.

Good job with your progress so far and good luck with the water. I find it a real challenge too!

Try some peppermint tea if you want something that's hydrating and a little bit different.
