100 Day Challenge

I've decided on my goals for the Log My Loss 100 Day Challenge. I want to check out these peppers!

This actually took some thought (I'm a cautious soul), but I think I can lose the last 7 pounds to get to my 10%. That's 14 weeks, right? So far I've averaged .8 pounds a week, that's only half a pound a week, so even with the holidays (so many! so many good things!) I think I can do it.

So--
1. is to lose 7 lbs by January 1.

Mini-goals for the next week:

2. Save blogging/reading until after my little one's in bed (8:30).
3. Four 5-factor workouts by next Wednesday. Got one in today (lunges! Ugh!)

Eating was not great today. I forgot how hungry weight-training can make me. Don't think I ate above maintenance and anyway I'm not going to worry about it too much. I bought what I thought were rice cakes (5-factor friendly) but were in fact Rice Snacks, so though low in calories you could eat a million and not really notice.

Shaking in my boots about those 7 pounds. What a chicken. Bawk bawk!

  1. I am glad to read you are in. The goals look good - we gotta take care of the family still, don't we?

  2. Excellent goals! I understand the nervousness, but I also believe you CAN do it. But no matter if you lose 6-7/8 pounds or 7/8 pounds by the end of the year, you're still moving in the right direction!

  5. Good luck!

    And regardless what the scale decides to say, if you stick to your plan and keep doing so well, that's a huge accomplishment.
