Christmas Dress Challenge – Week Nine – Recovering

Week Nine is packed away, THANK goodness.  I had a nasty, nasty head cold this week.  I honestly feel better today – Yeah!

This week I weighed in at 157.0 pounds, back in the right direction.

DO-IT:  The Dress.Done.  Love that dress, I really do.  I haven’t had a red dress in years and years.

DO-IT: My  Weight Watchers points. Um..sort of.  Feeling sick all week, I didn’t track religiously.  I’m pretty sure that three days of chicken soup and tea didn’t break the point bank, though.

DO-IT: Earn 50 activity points a week. Oooh, not done this week.  Did I mention I was sick from Wednesday through Saturday? Even with that, I managed a respectable 37 points, including six hours of hiking and trail building last Saturday.  What’s trail building? That’s when a group of hardcore mountain bikers hop in trucks drive back to the boonies with a load of hand tools and start cutting a path through the woods on which to ride their bikes.

After

Fabulous view from the peak of the new trail!!  That’s downtown Ft. Worth in the distance.  And yes, I have every intention of riding my bike up this hill, and back down the other side.  The trail should be complete by March.

DO-IT: Consistency. Almost.  I plead innocence against the mutated cold germ my youngest son gave me.  This week will be better for sure.

DO-IT: Hydrate.  Done.  Even with a sore throat.

DO-IT:Read a few more chapters of Refuse to Regain this week. VERY enlightening, especially the information about HOW fat causes other health problems.

DO-IT: One update post a week. Yes!

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!

Stay Healthy.  Keep the Faith.

  1. I want to come and ride that trail. I have worked with the DNR to help clear trails in the BWCA. It’s a lot of work but the friendships built and the work done maks it all worth while.
    I am so glad you are feeling better. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
    Now have a great week, take care and God Bless!!

  2. Yes, kids spread nasty germs. But you had a really good week in spite of fighting the germies. No one expects you to track every morsel and earn all your activity points when you’re sick. And that bike trail…well, I think I’ll stick to riding my old bike around the neighborhood. Have a great week!
