Wednesday Check-in Shrinkvivor Style

Shrinkvivor Challenge at the Sisterhood!

So another week of Shrinkvivor has passed. I am loving this challenge. I have had another good week and I am please to report the following:
Starting Weight: 213.8
Week 1: 213
Week 2: 210.2
Week 3: 206.6
Week 4: 205.8
Change: .8 lbs
Total Lost: 8.0 lb
Not a huge loss this week, but after my weekend Up North I am pleased with anything I can get! I am also really excited that I have continued to lose every week. That is a huge accomplishment no matter what the number is. I didn't get a lot of miles in this week for the challenge, I only logged in 5. But I did get one of those miles in over the weekend without the benefit of a shower, so I think that is pretty hard core right there. My poor husband having to ride 5 hours with me smelling like sweat, to me, shows how much he loves me! Or it is pay back that he works in a very smelly industry and is usually the stinky one. I did get my water in, I even packed extra for the weekend so I would not be tempted to drink any other beverages. The fruits and veggies didn't all make it in everyday but I am trying and that is saying something. I have to admit failure on the food log, I completely let it slip my mind and didn't journal at all. I am going to work on that one this week. I know that it will help with accountability.
I find myself running out of time long before I run out of day and that makes it hard to get everything in that needs to be done. Work, home, school, workouts. Something always seems to fall through the cracks, so this week I am taking out my TV time. I started last night and I got through so much more last night than I usually get through the entire week. I am hoping that is gives me more time to workout. If not at least I will have a clean house. I got that idea when I was given a rare treat of being home alone for a couple hours Monday night and I was so excited to get to watch whatever I wanted on TV and realized there was nothing I wanted to watch even on, so instead I watched a TV show I had on DVR that I had already seen. I made me more aware of how much of my day gets wasted. So I have a few things to work on this week, but I am really excited to get started and see where the week takes me.
How are you all doing??
