Shrinkvivor Challenge (Week 2 - DOWN .2)

BLACK TEAM ROCKED IT THIS WEEK, we survived week 2 !!!
Another week behind us, and even with a birthday party, I survived. So, week 2 down and 5 more weeks to go! The BLACK TEAM had a few inner-challenges of our own and some I made and some I didn't. Our challenges this week were "minutes of exercise" and "NO fast food"; then we added "rolling out of bed for 10 minutes of sit-ups/floor exercise" and "trying to reach 120-200 minutes of exercise each day".
WATER - WATER - WATER I still tried to hit the 120oz of water (challenge from week 1) and I can say about half way through the week, I was SO sick of water. But I picked it back up and I can honestly say WATER does help with weight loss. So, DRINK YOUR WATER!
MINUTES OF EXERCISE... I was doing SO well at the beginning of the week. Each day I get in 35 minutes of Boot Camp and I up'd the minutes by adding in walking, exercise DVD or swimming. I did not reach my OWN challenge of doing 120-200 minutes of exercise each day, but I can tell you I DOUBLED my exercise everyday this week and it felt GREAT! Although not showing on the scale as much as it did last week (with a loss of 4.2), I can really start to tell in my clothes feeling so much looser. (and people are starting to noticed, that is a sure sign you can tell you are loosing weight; when people notice).
NO FAST FOOD: enough said. I DID IT! I really did not go through one drive through this week and not even one restaurant either. So, proud of myself.
ROLL OUT OF BED EXERCISE: this is such a great habit, and well exactly that it MUST become a habit. Somedays I was able to roll right out of bed onto the floor and do some sit-ups and other days I was running late and did try to do them right before bed. I even went to bed at 2am on the night of my twins sleep-over and there I was at 2am on the floor doing my exercises. I was proud and need to continue to PUSH myself to do this everyday!
The SHRINKVIVIOR CHALLENGE is helping me to PUSH MYSELF when I am tired, PUSH MYSELF when I don't want to do that extra 30 minutes of exercise and PUSH MYSELF that extra step because I know my tribe members are pushing themselves too and it's a TEAM EVENT and I want to be a strong team member. Today is weight in and all week I have done TWICE as much exercise as last week, ate LESS food and the scale was NOT my friend this morning. I only lost .2 lbs. Now, I ask was this my body saying....
"HOLD ON WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" (I LOST 4.4 lbs last week)
"WAS THIS MY LACK OF EXERCISE?" (No, I did DOUBLE the exercise this week)
"WAS IT BIRTHDAY PARTY FOOD?" (I did only taste everything, that can't be it)???
I am still not sure of the answer, but I do know in my heart I did EVERYTHING I could to loose weight and it just didn't happen this week. Am I giving up? HECK NO!! I really hope I make it another week with my tribe and NOT get sent to Exile Island, the daily emails from these ladies are SO valuable!

Ultimate goal weight:

LIFE-TIME Goal would be to be in the 130’s, and yes I don’t even care if it’s 139. I am posting my weight here (because on The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans they say Coming to terms with the number on the scale can aid you in your weight-loss”)
Here's to 5 more weeks to go on this ULTIMATE SHRINKVIVOR CHALLENGE!


  1. How about muscles weighing more that fat, I bet that's it! :) Just keep on keeping on...

  2. Thanks Rae, yes I HOPE that is it! I weighted again this morning and YAHOOOOO I am down 1 more pound. So, I am HAPPY with results overall! That's 5.4 lbs total!

  3. I think the only thing that matters is that it's going down! Your body is probably freaking out after last week. :-)

    I finally lost (after my 0.2 gain last week)...down 3.8!!!
