CDCC Update Week 7

I'm a little ticked off today with my weight.  If you read my blog you will know that on Wednesday I showed a gain for Shrinkvivor.  That gain put me on Exile Island.  I knew that I was feeling bloated and the weight probably wasn't what it would have been otherwise.  So today I weigh and this is what I see:

Last Sunday: 228.8
Wednesday: 229.2
Today: 226.4

That's 2.4 pounds lost for the week and almost 3 since Wednesday. I didn't do mass exercise or eat perfect so what is with this up and down weight loss. I'm happy for the loss, but I'm ticked that I had to show a gain just days ago and be booted off to Exile Island.  I complained about the whole up and down weight thing last week and I guess that is my theme now.  As much as it stinks to go up at least I went back down.  I just need to get over it.

I am still trying to work my water in daily.  It continues to be a challenge. BUT I am doing much better than I used to with the water.

Food has been  decent considering I wen tot a birthday party and a Harvest Day at Church.  Yesterday I went to a girls third birthday party and I didn't eat any cake.  Okay I did take two tiny bites off my sons plate, but I didn't get my own piece.  I was very proud of myself.  Today was Harvest Day after Church and I had my portion, but didn't keep going back for more.  I did have a piece of dessert, but I didn't go back for more and more.  I had to consciously tell myself I didn't need it, I was satisfied and I didn't need any more.

My book is going fine.  I don't read every day, but I'm keeping up with it.  I'll try to post a few of the highlights soon.

Exercise is going well.  I only got in two runs this week.  The whole being dark until after 6am is really messing with my running.  I am looking forward to time change and it being light again in the mornings.  I don't like to go out when it's dark.  I did run this morning.  I ran for 25 minutes straight.  Total of about 35 minutes with the walking before and after.  I still can't believe I can run for that long.  My first official 5k with others is happening on Nov. 6th.  I know I won't run the whole thing without walking, but I'm excited.  My husband will be doing the 10k.  Should be fun.

I hope all of you have a great Halloween tomorrow.  Stay mindful of the amount of Candy you sneak from the kids. haha  Don't go overboard.


  1. Don't fret about the up and down. It happens, to everyone, all the time. You can't control or predict, so let it go and just keep moving forward doing the best you can do.

    Have a wonderful week, and yes, let's BOTH stay away from the candy! (Ah...peanut butter cups are my nemesis.)

  2. The candy smelled so good tonight. Hope you have a good week. Up and down just much salt, fluids, activity, etc. affect us from day to day. Good luck with your next weigh in.

  3. When I decide to check the scale daily my weigh can change up to 5 lbs. It is amazing how it goes up and down.
    Good job on the loss and your exercise. Good luck on your 5K. I did my last one of the year the 1st weekend in October and ran most of it. 33 minutes was my time. I was happy with it and proud I did it.
    Take care and have a blessed evening.
