GOYB Week #7

Yes, I know. I’ve missed several weeks. I’m a bad witchy weight loser. I also haven’t been keeping up with 52Weeks, so it’s not just the flub I’m avoiding.

February has just not been a good month for anything, except work. Personally and through Belfire, a lot of work has been done and put out there into the world. I know I have to make changes to my life in order to start getting healthy, but I’ve also got commitments I can’t flake out on.


So, I’ve lost about two pounds (see-sawing) since I last updated, and about an inch and a half. I haven’t been keeping up with the host blog, either, so I’m not sure what the challenges have been.

My personal challenges have been fail since the last update; the food diary skipped out the window, I’ve had a few carbonated drinks (do I get less whuppin’ because they’re Dole Sparklers?), and practically dropped the exercise entirely. See? I said I was a bad witchy weight loser. <|x^P BUT I’ve tripled my water intake, and plan on quadrupling by the end of March. Why? Because that’ll be about what an average person drinks. I’ve managed to get up to six 8 ounce glasses a day, and I’ve cut the majority of ‘crap’ drinking (coffee, tea, high-fructose juices & soda) to a minimum.

Believe me, the caffeine headaches have been raging over here.

Goals for the remaining 4 weeks of the formal challenge:

We don’t have normal TV anymore as we purposely chose to have just Netflix, so I don’t have the weekly Biggest Loser as an inspiration boost. I’m considering tracking it down online, even if I just listen to it while I’m working, that’ll be something.

Does anyone know of any podcasts or the like, dealing with weight loss and getting fit?

Good luck this week!
