This post is coming at you delayed, simply because I've been insanely busy this past week with the arrival of my baby niece (pictures & details to follow!)  I've been busy helping with three toddlers and other household chores.  Every night I've been utterly exhausted by the time the kids are all in bed.  

I didn't measure myself or do a weigh-in (I mentioned previously that my sister informed me that she doesn't have a  scale so that is out until I get home in NYC.)  I also decided not to track points.  I've been really needing to be flexible in everything, and I'm admittedly off track a bit.  I'm still not discouraged though.  In life there are always temporary setbacks…the key is seeing them as just that…temporary.  

Today, I thought I'd share a two part goal I have regarding two of my favorite pairs of jeans ever:

1.  Goal #1 is to fit into my 7 jeans again.  Right now I can pull them almost all the way, but I cannot button them or zip them, too much hip/butt, so as that region shrinks these will easily fit again.

2.  Goal #2 is to fit into my Express jeans again.  I haven't worn these jeans since before my wedding/honeymoon.  I can pull these up to about mid thigh right now…so I have some work to do! 

In other news, I begin my Medifast 5-in-1 program tomorrow morning.  I am excited to get things going in the right direction again.  I delayed starting the program because I had a moment of clarity about attempting to start it while watching three toddlers all by myself for 48 hours…not the brightest idea.  I can't wait to share progress with that later in the week, and let you know how it is going and what I really think of it.

This Week:

I'm proud of these choices:

Well, I am sure there is something to be proud of, but I can't really think of anything, eek!

I'd like to work more on:

I haven't really been working out this past week and a half, nor have I been very disciplined with my eating plan.  The family here knows how to cook, so it is REAL hard to stick to my own food! :)

I totally cheated when:

I've been having a TON of dessert, so bad, really, like ice cream, cupcakes, cookies…woe is me!

How did you do this week?

Want to catch up on my journey? V.5, V.4, V.3V.2, V.1


  1. Love that you talk about what youre proud of and when you cheat eat! I am terrible at being honest w myself!

  2. I TOTALLY hear you on the goal about the Seven jeans! I have a pair as well that I can wear but are just a tad too uncomfortable to keep  all day. What an excellent goal! :D


Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I don't always have time to respond to each one, but I do read them! XO
