May Your Way: Introduction Post

May Your Way Challenge

Well, there is a new challenge up at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans for May.  It is called May Your Way.  No teams or groups this time.  I get to be responsible for myself.  That could be a good thing. Nobody else to take down with me when I don't do so well.  This past few weeks have been really bad, especially when you consider I lost approximately 10 pounds in January, 10 pounds in February and 10 pounds in March, but only 3 pounds in April.  I have got to get back on track and I believe this challenge will help me do just that.

I am planning on reviewing my goals each week to see how I am doing and change them if I have to.  But for now, here are my goals.

I would love to lose another 10 pounds during this challenge.
I will drink 2 glasses of water before each meal.
I will drink 1 cup of green tea each day.
I will not snack between meals or while cooking/preparing meals.
I will not eat after supper.
I will not eat any candy, cake, frosting, ice cream, "sweet" cereals (Frosted mini wheats do not count), etc.  I am committing to this on a weekly basis.
I will exercise for at least a half an hour every day.  Hope to get the Wii fit routine in at least 3 days and the Aerobics DVD in at least 2 days.  Other days I am hoping to walk or at the very least step for 1/2 hour.

When I was doing this I was losing weight.  I also hope to get to bed by 11pm, 12 at the latest.  But I am not going to commit to this.
I will start my day with the Bible and then my exercise.  Gotta remember to set the alarm.  At least Hannah isn't in my room anymore.

I am starting this challenge using last week's weight, which is 224. I am so looking forward to being out of the 220's!
Weight at start of May Your Way Challenge: 224
Total Loss since weight loss journey got serious on December 13th 2010: 37.9


  1. I take it variation from your goal of in bed by 11 or twelve is allowed when you're up watching CNN?? :)

  2. Great goals! you can do this!
