The End? The Beginning?

Whoops! I wrote the whole post (below) thinking that this was the last post of the challenge.  Looks like I have one more week of redemption!  So not planning to quit, not ever. 


Well, we made it through the challenge.  I for one, stuck with it, but didn't do so well.  I'm glad I stuck to this as it really made me think each week.  I'm not going to join any more challenges for the moment but I'm not going to give up and stop. I just need to find out how to succeed.  I know what I want, I just need to commit myself to doing it. 

So thank you Mir for hosting this challenge.  I've enjoyed every one of your butt kicking posts.  I'll keep reading and follow along with the people in your next challenge. I wish you and the others the best! 

Weight:  I'm up like 2 lbs. I ate horrible this week. So I'm ending the challenge weighing in more than I was at the beginning.  Embarrassing and I'm mad as heck about that.  Obviously, the jacket still doesn't fit.  It's still in my closet though!

Exercise:  Bad week, ice has made it unfit for running outside and the treadmill and I still need to get reacquainted. 

Book:  I'm forever grateful that Mir recommended Wheat Belly.  It really was the key to me figuring out this gluten intolerance.  Loved the book and am continuing to learn more and more about it.

Almost the end?

Whoops, sorry this is late.  Busy, busy weekend.  I have extra daycare kids here today so I was trying to get my kids to do a few lessons last night so they could play with their friends today. That's the beauty of homeschool, the flexibility. 

I still am far away from fitting into a whole bunch of winter clothes.  I have a whole bunch that I was HOPING to fit into. Instead, I'm stuck at the same weight and it doesn't appear that I'm moving.  I need someone to smack me and tell me to get serious!  No, actually, I need to find that switch and just flip it and take it seriously.  That's what it comes down to, I'm just not taking it seriously.  It's pretty stupid, I know. 

Weight:  Pretty much the same.  Seriously, the last few months, it's has stayed remarkably the same.  I'll go up a few pounds, then down a few pounds.  I'll have one great week, then one stinky week.  Consistency is a huge issue.

Water:  Better, staying hydrated.

Exercise:  Decent.  I'm not walking or running quite as much as it's cold and icy now. I need to get used to the treadmill. Weights are going well.

I can't blame the holiday foods or anything in particular.  It's me. All me. I need to figure out how to get back on track.
