Halfway – can you believe we’re half way through this challenge? Even more astonishing – we’re heading into November. Where did this year go?
This week I weighed in at 158.0 pounds, a little gain. I know exactly why, too. Loss of focus and failure to exercise my self-control muscle. It’s all good…time to Suck It Up, Buttercup and get it done this week whether I want to or not.
DO-IT: The Dress. It’s still here, hanging on the closet door. Now I need to find an occasion to wear it. It was announced this week that our Company Christmas Party won’t be the usual sit down dinner formal-ish type event. Nope. We’re renting out the Lucky Strike Bowling/Lounge on a Saturday afternoon instead, which will be super fun! My design team has decided to get some funky matching bowling shirts for ourselves and our spouses to sport at the party. That’s a good thing, because I just can’t see myself in Princess Pea’s gold shoes and the red dress tossing a ball down a lane! I’ll just wear it to mass on Christmas Eve. 🙂 Scandalous!
DO-IT: My Weight Watchers points. Over. Told you I didn’t exercise my self-control muscle!
DO-IT: Earn 50 activity points a week. This I did. Self Defense classes, a 15 mile bike ride, Insanity Workout (Yes, it’s insane. My butt hurts today.) lots of walking and a bazillion lunges and pushups.
DO-IT: Consistency. Not so hot. I didn’t get enough veggies in my diet this week. That’s easy enough to fix, and next week’s menus are already planned.
DO-IT: Hydrate. Done-ish. It was better towards the end of the week once I found my favorite water bottle that had gone missing.
DO-IT:Read a few more chapters of Refuse to Regain this week.
DO-IT: One update post a week. Yes! Over at Christmas Dress Challenge Site. Go Read It….I wrote about Motivation this week.
DO-IT: Link up to your weekly updates. Done for sure, this week!
DO-IT: Be supportive. Yes! Yes! Yes! I’ll make the rounds again this week!
Suck It Up. Keep the Faith.

The bowling things sounds fun. Be sure to show us your teams shirts!
Have you tried spaghetti squash? It’s a great way to get in more veggies. I like to have it with a little meat sauce or with just some roasted veggies and parm. Very good!
Have a great weeken 🙂
I so love reading what’s up with you and I so love your stopping by and comments. Keep up the great exercising and watch your points and you’ll do more awesomely.
Take care and God Bless!!

The bowling does sound like fun and should be less food focused. Sounds like you have a good week planned.
Thank you your always inspiring comments and posts! I know you will be more focused this week. You will rock that Christmas Dress!
I know you will get back on track. I also need a place to wear my dress.
Menu planning is a bear, glad you had your week worked out and hope it’s going well for you.
