Christmas Dress Challenge – Week Four – Extreme Exercise!!

This week I weighed in at 157.4 pounds, a 0.2 pound loss.  Here are the rest of the stats.

DO-IT:  The Dress.  Bought it, and it’s at the store ready to be picked up.  I just haven’t made it over there to fetch it.  Color me busy.

DO-IT: I’m a Weight Watchers fan, so I’ll stick to my points, 29 daily points 49 weeklies. This week I stayed within my daily allowance; I did not eat my weekly points. I did eat a few most of my activity points.  I’m so hungry after working out.

Dirt BunnyDO-IT: Earn 50 activity points a week.  Got this!  58 points in six days – 10 mile bike ride, two Self Defense Classes, a Jazzercize class, situps pushups, Boot Camp and one amazing mountain bike outing!  This week The Architect, my oldest son, and I went alone. I rode seven miles and didn’t fall even once!!

The picture right is from the trail.  Yep, I made The Architect stop and take my picture just for this blog.  How’s that for planning? This section of the trail runs right along the river bank; one slip of a tire and you fall 40 feet down into the Trinity River.  I pedal very, very slowly and carefully through here!

Just in case you’re wondering, Mr. Pea is strictly a road bike kind of guy – the mountain biking is for me and the kids, though we road bike with Mr. Pea, too.  His job is to call us several times during every ride to make sure we’re still okay. 😉

DO-IT: Consistency.  Consistent I was this week.  No binges, no slacking on exercise.

DO-IT: Hydrate.  Done!

DO-IT: I continued reading Refuse to Regain.  I really like the way the author encourages us to think of ourselves as Warriors in a righteous battle for our lives in a world determined to push garbage food in our faces.  And the chapter on guilt?  Oh yeah.  I so totally get it.

DO-IT: One update post a week.  Nope.  No excuses.  I just didn’t do it.

DO-IT: Link up to your weekly updates.  Done.

DO-IT:  Be supportive.  Yes!  Yes! Yes!  I may even fussed at a few of you.  Just know it’s because I love you

Be a Warrior.  Keep the Faith.

  1. You’re beautiful. Great job on everything and love that picture. Keep it up Angela. Mike wants to take me mountain biking on our new trails. I’m thinking about it, so afraid I’ll fall off the trail. Take care and thank you for stopping by and your sweet and caring comments.
    Have a blessed week.

  2. You are inspiring! Thank you for your supportive comments and your picture. I love to know how a person looks like who inspires me. 🙂
    I think you are doing beautifully!!

  3. Congrats on getting the dress. The trail looks beautiful. Your books sounds very interesting. How much water do you drink on average….?Thanks for your supportive words this weekend. They mean so much!

    1. How much water I drink depends on the weather. This summer, when we were in the midst of the 100+ degree streak and I was exercising outdoors, I was drinking more than a gallon of water a day. Now that it’s cooling off, I drink at least 90 ounces of water a day – a two liter bottle.

  4. Great job with the loss & exercise! I used to bike all the time as a kid but mostly cause itwaz my means of transportation…. the trails you bike on sound & look like I’d enjoy walking them just so I could take in all they have to offer:-)
