Hot 100 Update #5

Last night ended up turning into a binge carbfest. I did not see my mom (I canceled on her) and just went home to veg. We haven't gone grocery shopping lately so I was scraping to eat something satisfying. I had waffles with syrup, popcorn, dinner rolls and string cheese and M&Ms. Why am I reverting to old behaviors? I hadn't done this in a long time. Ummm... can we say Self-sabotage? Don't feel like you are worth the effort anymore, Katie J?  The silver lining is that I am aware of what I am doing to myself and today is a new opportunity to turn it around. In my past attempts to lose weight this would have been the end and I would saw "Screw it all" and gain weight but I will not allow this to break me down or dampen my spirit. I CAN and WILL do this! Hoo-rahhh!!!

So on to the update:
  1. I will lose 2 lbs. per week. I gained 4 lbs! (263) FAIL
  2. I will wear my bodybugg from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. daily. I wore it 5/7 OK
  3. I will exercise a min. of 30 mins - 5 days per week. I did one day this week FAIL
Now that I have my living room back, I can Wii again which will help a lot, especially now that it's getting cold out.  Danielle and I are planning on going to the gym tomorrow morning. Most likely won't take a Zumba class -we'll do cardio and light weights. Danielle is not overweight at all, in fact, she struggles sometimes to maintain her weight. What her motivation is - is toning. It would be fantastic if she joined the gym but I am not holding my breath. It would be great to go with someone but I know if I went alone I would make friends there - not that it is even necessary. Anywhozzle, hope you all have a great weekend and GO GIANTS!!& HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!


  1. Ugh. I hate when that happens. And it has happened to me several times in the last 2 weeks. I don't know what happens. It seems that the minute I feel really strong and on top of things, blam, down I go. Is it that I can't stand success? Can't get used to a healthy, energetic me? Who knows.

    What I do know is that we are not giving up. As long as we keep getting up and at it, we will do this thing. This time! Yes, we will. :)

    I hope you're having a great day. I'm good so far.


  2. Its one day. You can do better! You will do better!


  3. Oh Katie - you know I relate to your carbfest and frustrating scale results! I had a pretty lousy Hot 100 week myself but intend, hope and pray to make up for it this week! You can do this.

  4. Kaatie J, I know you are feeling disapointed, just get back on track ASAP. you have been working so hard and occasionally one loses focus. don't beat yourself up about it, just know you are worth it to keep going. hugs to you....happy halloween.

  5. I wish I knew why sometimes I do this to myself. I eat something I don't really want or didn't really need because it's there or on the spur of the moment. Maybe not having the waffles, syrup, dinner rolls and M&Ms? I know there are somethings I just can't be around or have. I am only now letting myself have cereal. But..ONWARD! Better next week.

  6. You haven't given up- so you haven't failed. Just keep going- you are doing great! Have a great Halloween!

  7. Could the big jump in one week be from your cycle? Is it hormone related?
    Like the others have said I too say don't give up today is a new day keep moving forward thats all you can do!

  8. Tough week - the good news is it gets better. Make this next one outstanding!
