Jingle the Jiggle Challenge (Drop the Jiggle!) Week 1 blog

Monday, November 07, 2011

Ok... this here is that blog I've been promising to do, seein' how it is part of the challenge to blog weekly. :) Looks like my blog days will be Mondays so long as I remember. :) Mondays will be good, too, since that's right after the weekend, and perhaps that will force me to do better, seein' how I'm gonna have to tell on myself anyways. :)

So... we're one week into the Jiggle the jingle challenge and I have not been doing well at all. My eating is out of control, my exercise has been nil, I've forgotten to take my vitamins nearly every day, I'm not drinking my water like I have been previously, and my mood has been pretty down lately. Bummer of a week last week, really.

But today picked up big time... I got up at a good early hour, ate oatmeal for breakfast (and coffee!) and walked a mile on the ol' dreadmill while watching Vampire Diaries (love that show) did a ton of laundry (while watching even more Vampire Diaries) and even got to talk to a really good friend I met here on spark! That was absolutely terrific! (love ya, girl!!) then I did more laundry and watched more Vampire Diaries, but... I did pig out on crackers with cheese and peanut butter. :/ My fault for not having a lunch planned and eating in front of the TV. ... anyhow, then I made a huge pot of chili for supper, did even more laundry, and then this evening attended the quorum court meeting where my daughter's flag design was accepted via an official resolution! It was a contest for our county school students (celebrating the 100th year of our court house) and my daughter's was picked! She got an official copy of the Resolution and $50! How cool is that? !!!! :) They had 3 flags total made... 1 is flying at the court house. Way cool.

So... today is a good start to this week and hopefully I'll do better on the vitamins, food and water and keep up with the dreadmill mile.

I don't know how much weight I can lose between now and Dec 15th (last day of the challenge)... any loss will be welcomed. I just want to stick to this one! I"m so bad about fizzling out!!! I don't want to fizzle again. For me... fizzling out also equates to a weight GAIN and that's the pits.

I think I can beat the fizzle this time!!!!

    Etch new day is a new chance to make the right decisions. So you had a bad week, we all do. Just try to do better the next day. When I first started having to take meds regularly, I would often forget, but I started putting a post-it note on my steering wheel of my car that said "Did you take your pills?" When I got in the car it was there and if I had not I would run in and take them before I left for the day, you might try that with your vitamins! Good luck!

    Congrats to your daughter.

    Halloween candy, time change and colder weather are making it hard for me to stick to eating right and exercising. I really need to get back on the fitness train.

    I know what you mean. My eating would top Jabba The Hut's eating! If I don't stop, I am gonna look like him!

    I did laundry all day yesterday, too! Still have one little load to finish this am!

    Yesterday was terrific, and we gotta do that again!

    I don't what kind of weight I will lose, but I am so not in the mood to gain! So here goes nothing! No running around like a crazy person this am. I should be able to get that turbo in with no problem!

    Congrats on your daughter's success!!!

    Now for you, you need to find something fun that you enjoy for exercise or maybe do several different things to mix it up! You don't want to dread it. I do admit that most exercise is hard to get motivated to do but I know what works for me is to schedule it with a friend or several friends because then if the one friend backs out, there are still more to keep you going. Keep trying different things until you find something that works for you and isn't such a chore. When you start to exercise more the other stuff will either fall in place easier or will not be as important anymore.

    Keep going cuz you're worth it!!!!!!
