Winner & Wednesday Weigh (Hot 100 Update #2)

Had a pretty good night last night. We had chicken, broccoli and rice for dinner. We actually sat at the kitchen table which was a nice change. We usually just get out the TV trays.

I rode Phoebe for 1.5 miles while Dave walked. The headlight worked really well! It was great having it!  Here is a picture of me with it on my hat.  Came home and watched the end of the Biggest Loser. It is so nice having it DVR'd so I can skip the bazillion commercials.

Well I got on the scale this morning and I gained 3 lbs. I am at 263 again! I am frustrated as heck but I do not have anyone to blame but myself. I should not have had 6 beers with salt and lime last Saturday. If I should decide to drink, I will choose a good merlot or cab instead of beer. Can't let it derail me. Just pushing forward. For the challenge, here are my goals for the week and how I did with them.

  1. I will lose 2 lbs. per week. gained 3 lbs
  2. I will wear my bodybugg from 7:00 am until 10:00 pm daily including weekends. I wore it 6/7 days and posted my screens accordingly.
  3. My exercise plan is to exercise a minimum of 30 mins/day for a minimum of 5 days a week. I rode my bike 3 days out of 7 this week for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Well the good news is I can do better this week right? I know what I need to do. I am getting sick of singing the same old song though. Are you guys as sick of me as I am? LOL!

Now on the the Giveaway!  The winner of the Hershey's Moderation Nation Giveaway is Jen at Losing My Shadow. Congratulations Jen!  Please send me your contact info and I will forward it to my contact at Blogspark for fulfillment. I have some more Giveaways planned so stay tuned.

Tonight I am getting a pedicure! Yay!!! It is overdue for sure! The last time I went in Victoria (my pedi gal) helped me with my ingrown toenail and it is all healed now so I can get color again. They felt so nekkid without color. I chose a new color called Oh My Magenta. I love that name! Hope to get to Phoebe time in tonight too. Rain is in the forecast but I don't think it will come down this far. Until next time...


  1. Sheesh! Can I send you some of our rain? It rained all last week until Saturday. We had one good day then it started raining again and has been raining ever since. I'm overdue for some sunshine!!

    I like how you're very matter of fact about your Hot 100 goals. I hope when you meet your goals your font color will be green :-)

  2. How exciting is a pedi. I sure do miss mine. I know you will get these pds. off! I am behind u 100%

  3. i want some oh my magenta. sounds right up my street.

    its true. you can only do better my love. but still wasnt the worst effort. sorry about the gain though.

    you look so cute in your hat and light!

  4. Beautiful nail color! I like it!
    I understand the gain, too. Its a mind game that we have to play every day, and when we dont, food gets the best of us. Stay strong!

  5. I like that headlight! I may, er, WILL have to steal that idea from you (and Helen) when I end up running in the dark in a couple of months.

    Amazing what a six pack of beer can do to a weigh-in...hope next week's is more to your liking! :)

  6. Oh, and how do guys do it? Drink a sixer every night and not gain weight like that? Or am I just seeing all of the young college boys around here who have that youthful metabolism going for them?

  7. Don't worry about the lb's...
    We know this - it's just frustrating, right?
    But it's all good, at any rate!

  8. It so sucks dancing around the same pounds but I know you can do it-you are so cute in that hat-and we could never get sick of you~

  9. I love that nail polish color. I just painted mine, Bittersweet :)

  10. Oh I have song that song too often myself. Let's make next week a great week!

  11. I need to look up some more info on the bodybug. I keep hearing about it but havnen't looked into it.

    Alright, I want to see that 2 lb loss next week, got it! :-)

  12. Love the color, in honor of BC month? Is there pearl in that color?

    And no I am not sick of you... ;-)
