I’m going to cheat and do everything in one post this week. Really I think I cheat and do this all the time but just never said it.
Allan is the host for Allan's Double Dare Challenge. I am still struggling eating the 1975 calories a day I'm suppose to. It's hard when I'm use to 300-500 less. I wonder what Allan has in store for us next week.
I worked out on Monday, skipped Tuesday and Wednesday and today started the Couch2K5 fitness program. I didn’t to too bad. I don’t use a treadmill and I live on a hilly road so some of the jogging was up hill but I did it from start to finish. It was a little over 2 miles for me on the Week 1 Day 1. I'm hoping tomorrow and Saturday afternoon to get in the 3 times a week needed to get to Week 2. Next was the exercises I missed Tuesday and Wednesday, weights and planks and today is squats. Did and done. I don’t know if that counts for doing it each day but I didn’t miss the exercises, I got them done. As for a menu, well I haven’t gotten there yet. I am thinking because the groceries in the house are the same as the first week’s menu, I’ll just use that with a bit of tweaking. Allan again has been helping me here. It is so nice knowing a head of time what to fix. Even if I change my mind and use those ingredients for something else, at least I have the idea.
Charlie on the Train to Onderland is doing fantastic. Even he screws up and moves past it. Charlie was the first challenge I joined and I am trying but haven’t moved a bunch on the scale since starting his challenge. I am down the 3 lbs I gained last week, back to my 197 like the past month but maybe the scale will keep moving for Monday’s weigh in. HOPEFULLY!!
Steve and his 100 Hotties, (one day I might be one of those hotties)….has always some great ideas. He found a cool site for 10 Fall Work-outs. I have been doing #3 lately, getting ready for winter, I’m not good at #4 but Mike and I play lots of one on one, I don’t do #6 that’s what the mower is for but we did rake up a bunch to burn for my mama. #7 Mike and I did last weekend and the daycare and I do lots and lots of. Mike did #2 and I hiked.
Oh I read something on Allan's blog this week, a person has to drink 4 lbs of water a day to stay healthy, pass all the bad things and feel full longer. Do you know how much 4 lbs of water is? Most blogs and people put it in oz, 65-100 oz a day. Well 4 lbs is just over a 1/2 gallon. I asked at Answers.com “How much does a gallon of water weight” (I always though 11 lbs, the same as gasoline) the answer…
Weight of 1 US Gallon of water = approx. 8.35 lb
So that means 64 ounces of water, that’s just 8 oz glasses or if you have kids that’s 9 of their colorful cups, you know the ones those sippy lids fit on. That’s only a small glass of water 9 times a day and just think if you could get in an extra 3-4. Just for the fun of it, I put water in a 1/2 gallon pitcher the past few days, each day by 2:00 pm I have drank that pitcher full and have refilled it once more before the end of my day. Yep I pee a lot but just think of all those bad ogolies heading down the pot.
So there is my Friday update guys. I hope I didn’t disappoint anyone. I think I did pretty good, not perfect but then I’m not my hubby :o) . I hope you all had a great week too. Remember to just try your best and you’ll succeed. I KNOW YOU WILL!!! Keep up the great work guys, thanks for all your support, comments and love. I appreciate so very much.
P.S. Got an ideas for you, each time you go potty, do 10 squats or 10 toe touches. After drinking that much water I bet you can get in a good 100 or more of each exercise. Just an idea..
