Wednesday Reflection: Shred wk 3/BLC 22 Begins :)

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

Good morning all,

Wednesday Reflection

Weigh in/Measurements:

*Last week I had to lose 5.8 lbs to meet my goal for today for this weekends Orion Festival. Well needless to say I didn't reach that BUT I did LOSE!!! Only 0.6 of a lb which I thought for sure with TOM in the mix it would be a big gain! That's awesome!!!

*Since Jan 2013 I have been a member of Curves. They weigh and measure me every month. I got measured on May 31. Before she handed me my report she went onto explain since my last measure in in April they have had a training session and discovered all employees were measuring too tight. I always kinda figured that something wasn't right but maybe it was just me and I measured myself wrong since I figures weren't totally the same. Well needless to say I had a total increase in inches of 19.25 which was not what I wanted to hear. But looking back these were more close to mine. However I do know that I am losing around the waist because my wonderful hubby noticed!!! So when I measure in at the end of this month I should see an actual change!!! For the better :)


Shred week 3 was a bust for me. As I stated before it was going to be the hardest week. I followed for the first 2 days and then I got hungry so I ate all weekend (good things, stayed in cal range). So I learned from my mistakes this week and have decided to repeat week 3 this week.

Orion Music Festival:

This weekend is mine and my hubby's early anniversary mini vacation to the Orion Music Festival. This is going to be quite the challenge for following Shred. We are not able to bring food into the festival. There are no microwaves in the room where we are staying and getting a refrigerator is requested and based on availability. So taking a small cooler with my fruits and veggies, some canned fruits and veggies, proportioned snacks, my Magic Bullet, and my Shred book and will do my best this weekend!

Family news:

Jay graduates from preschool this morning :( So sad yet so exciting!!! His official last day is Friday and then he will officially be a Kindergartener. Evie's last day is next Thursday and she then is officially a 3rd grader. Bittersweet! Lots of stuff going on from Jay's bday party at then end of the month to a couple graduation parties this month and next. I get tired just looking at my calendar. Going to be a busy beginning to the summer

BLC 22

So happy that the challenge starts today. Excited to be a Violet Venus again! Love this team! Such a great support! Good luck to all the BLCer's!

Spring 13 5%

Proud to announce that I have been consistently losing each week so this maybe my first time that I meet goal with this challenge! GO TEDDIES!

All for now have a great day! emoticon

    Sounds like you are doing well. Even with the measuring snafu at Curves you are maintaining your positive attitude.

    You're doing good! Ah, glad that you can put the measuring in perspective. Doing well and having to give up the real inches you have lost thru wrong measurement techniques would make me want to grab a brownie.

Thank you for the update on the Family. Now that I am grandma age, I hate to see little children grow up.
