Sarah D Journal - End of Week 4

Okay, done with week #4 - almost halfway through this challenge! So far I have not been blown away by my results but I am happy nonetheless!

I weighed and measured myself this morning, and was SO happy to see the scale down another 2 pounds! That makes 4 total for this challenge which is the lowest it's been since I have been back from furlough! Let's continue the downward trend!!! As far as my measurements go, nothing too exciting but still 1.5 inches overall.

I was able to keep up with drinking at least 64 oz of water every day for the bonus points this last week. In fact, most days I got 80 oz since the bottle I was using was 20 oz and I filled it up 4 times during the day. So that makes me happy. I think just having the bottle filled and keeping it near me is a reminder to drink water. If I don't have my water bottle, I won't remember to drink water!

I was able to get 40 minutes of exercise 5 days during this week for the bonus points, unfortunately I was not ever able to get an hour in.

I am still doing well with my "no desserts" rule. Some days are more of a struggle than others. Yesterday was my "free" day for the week as it was my daughter's 3rd birthday so I made ice cream and cupcakes. But still I only ate one angel food cupcake and a small cup of ice cream (probably only 1/4 cup of ice cream). So, not too bad! I think seeing the scale drop helps me to have the discipline NOT to eat those sweets! But now I have all the leftover cupcakes in my house which increases the temptation. I will just have to feed them to the neighbor kids :-)

Here's to another week of springing into shape, ladies!
