Losing It - Contest Edition - Week 1 (For Realz)

OK. I messed up last week because the competition was just beginning. Today marks Week 1 results. Really. I promise.

You can go to Kathy's House of Hills blog to read the rules. Please note that you have to link up or leave comments for 6 of the 8 weeks in order to qualify for the prizes. So get busy!

This has been a somewhat stressful week for me. A family issue, fingernail polish issue, and I had my first job interview in a longgggg time. OK. Two out of those three things were stressful.

The job interview went well and now I'm in "wait-and-see-mode." I'll post an update (either way) when I have news.

What I've come to realize is that if I'm stressed, I eat. If I'm happy, I celebrate by eating. Does anyone see a pattern here or struggle with it yourself?

Week 1 Results:
I lost 1 lb.
Got on the treadmill 3 days this week at a 2.5% incline, 3 mph, for 45 minutes.
Did sit-ups and used light weights for 3 days.

My plan for this upcoming week is: 5 days on the treadmill, 5 days of sit-ups and light weights, and drink more water.

Next week is Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday! I'm a bit apprehensive of losing any weight BUT I am going to enjoy a moderate feast and celebrate at my sister-in-law's home with a lot of family members. Moderation in eating is my goal and hugging my kids who will be home for a visit. (I wonder if I can burn a lot of calories by hugging my kids?)

Please join us at House of Hill's to link to your blog post, or leave a comment of your results, or just to cheer everyone on. I'm looking forward to eating turkey and moderation. :)

So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

  1. Praying for your job interview results! Your polish story was so cute! I laughed because I never wear nail polish anymore... not having a dish washer or a maid (ahhh, dreams!) means I am doing dishes way too much for nail polish. I am so envious that you can wear it. I suppose I could wear gloves... but anyways... back to Losing it! I am so proud of you for losing a pound! You are right on track! I have to up my water too, I am so bad about drinking it.

  2. You are doing great! I didn't exercise at all really. Hopefully I can make it happen this week. I look forward to catching up with you in a couple of weeks!

  3. Hi Cindy,
    I want to wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    God Bless,
    Michele Katherine

  4. A pound already - whoop! You go girl. Can't wait to hear how your Thanksgiving went and am praying for the job!


Thank you for stopping by and if you leave a comment...well that's just icing on the cake!
