Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

Losing It Monday

Thoughtfully penned on August 16th, 2010 and generally concerning Goals

Several months ago I set out to lose the rest of the weight I gained while pregnant with Baby Girl. Well, I did really well for the first ten pounds. Then I was able to fit into my jeans again and lost all motivation.

So, here I am again, challenging myself to get fit and lose some weight one more time. Only this time there is a little twist…Lindsey, Stacey, and I will be doing this together and blogging about our results every Monday (well, except Stacey since she doesn’t blog). The “official” challenge begins today and goes through October 18. I’m hoping that the additional accountability and encouragement will help keep me from losing momentum as I go.

I have about 30 pounds that I would like to lose, but that is a totally unreasonable goal for me for the next 10 or so weeks; so my challenge goal is to lose 15 pounds (and then hopefully retain momentum to lose the other 15). Each Monday I will record my weight loss/gain for the week, my inches lost/gained in several areas (waist, hips, thighs, arms, chest, etc), and a little about the exercise I’ve done and anything else (stress, holidays, etc) that might have effected my loss.

I plan to use some combination of T-Tapp, jumping rope, walking/running, and some other workout videos as my exercise each day. I will also be following the “No S” diet (no sweets, no seconds, no snacks except on days that start with “s”) to help control my caloric intake.

If you’d like to join us, we’d love to have some company. Here’s to a good 10 weeks!

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. I am already behind but I promise to get my measurements taken tomorrow and blog then also.

  2. I did try to jump rope today. I set my goal for 7 minutes, but soon realized that was impossible since I have had no exercise in a really long time. I think I jumped a total of about 2 minutes with breaks in between. I also did some crunches. Not many, but a start anyway.
    I do not have a scale, so I will have to borrow yours when I am over.

  3. I’m TOTALLY in! I need to lose 30-50 lbs…but I’d be happy with 20-30! I’ll join the no “s” except on days that start with a “s”…..

  4. Does this include no cokes?! This is my one cup of “coffee”….I’m assuming it does! BOO! ;)

  5. I love the “No-S” diet! I haven’t heard of that before! I hope your efforts go well. I know you can do it!
