Waist Watcher Wednesday Week 9

Before I begin today I just wanted to talk about a few things:

1. Today is Natalie's checkup! I am hoping to hear that we are doing well with parenting and that she is still gaining weight! I will give you an update tomorrow.

2. This post is scheduled to post today, because I will not be home! Hubby and I are dropping the kiddo off, and we are headed to my VERY FIRST NBA BASKETBALL GAME! I am super excited and we got the tickets for super cheap (because the Wizards kinda suck) and so I'll get to see my Magic for the first time! AND as a bonus, I'm going to get to see a friend of mine that I used to work with dance with the Wizards cheerleaders! I am super excited about that!

Ok now on with the post!


This is a weekly link party for everyone wanting to get back in shape, where we can post/comment our stats and offer each other helpful advice, workout ideas, what works for you, what doesn't and just generally support each other so that when we think about giving up we will have bloggy friends to lift us up again!

So, I will post one inspirational thing, a workout that I want to try, or something workout related every week, and I encourage you to do the same! Let's inspire each other into getting healthy this year and making our waists disappear!


Well my plans got VERY ruined this weekend, but I am totally ok with that.

My husband was hospitalized on Sunday and Monday this week. We still don't know exactly what was wrong, and when he was realeased he was told to buy some Prilosec OTC and get a colonoscopy but not much else. He still didn't feel that well today, and still has a monster headache that he's been battling with for the entire three days.

So needless to say, I didn't get to the gym to sign up. And I probably won't be able to get to the gym until Sunday to sign up. I still haven't had my back checked out, and I am still sore, but am hoping that once I start exercising that it will dull and go away, and that this is just a reprocussion from me being so inactive. I need to get on the ball because I only have one month to get ready for this 5k. And only 3 months till the second one. I must be crazy, but I totally want to do it! And I will!

So, this week I am going to focus on cutting soda completely out of my diet again. So no more soda or tea at work, and only one soda a day (a zero calorie one) with dinner. I think that is a good place to start, because I have been getting very bad with the soda again (even if it is Pepsi Max) and it leads to other bad choices. So my goal for this week is to only have one Pepsi Max a day, with dinner. And that's IT.



How did you do this past week?

Weight: 204.8
Previous: 204.8

TIPS: Weight yourself at the same time every time (morning is best) in the same type of clothing (or nude) on the same scale to get the best results.

REACTION: I swore off the scale this week, because it was just making me depressed. I will not weigh myself again until I get into that gym and get started!

BMI: 33.9
Previous: 33.9

TIPS: Use this website to compute your BMI

REACTION: Same as above.

Sorry you had the stressful week. I don't drink sodas any more. They weren't hard to give up. They are good to have once in awhile.

You'll get back on track.
