52 Mondays came to me in a fit of New years resolution fury. It seems I am always starting my "diet" or exercise plan on "Monday"! Well lots of "Mondays" have come and gone and my butt and thighs are still as thick as a Chick-filet shake (you know what I'm talking about!!) That is when I thought OK there are 52 Mondays in year...52 is a doable number of making small changing in my life that will hopefully change to number on the scale in a downward fashion. Come join us on the journey of 52 Mondays to getting our butt, thighs and almost everything else that shake and moves a little smaller. If want to be a contributor (and you know you do) just leave a comment and I will add you to the list of contributors! This is a blog were we can share our successes and failures on the hard journey of weight loss and just plain physical wellness.

Well week two was....interesting. I made 1 of my 3 workouts....yeah that is sooooo crappy! But I did do fairly well during the week. My weekend was not as good as it should have been, as you can see from Mel's post but still about 100X better than it was at Christmas time so that is progress. I was down 1.5 lbs this week and have to admit I was a bit disappointed. I knew the 5lbs last week was a fluke but it would have been nice to see at least 2lbs this week. Anyhow I am down a total of 7lbs. and my goals for this week are more water and to really make it to work 3x. I also want to work really hard to not use any of my "flex points" on the weekends, and see if it makes a difference. On a side note, today I took the kids to the Zoo because it was "free" zoo day and walked for about 4 1/2 hours total so if I don't make it to the gym tonight I am so counting that. Note to self and all other moms out there..... never go to the Zoo on free Zoo day, it is crazy crowded and not really worth the 1/2 mile hike to get into the Zoo. Next time I will pay to not have people running into the back of my legs with their strollers, and hitting me in the head (yes literally my head) with their purses, elbows, or backpack carriers. Here's to week 3 and trying to get a workout in.....

  1. Mayo? Sick. It makes me think of...anyways, any weight loss is weight loss! Keep it up. I hate any "free" days myself. It never seems worth it. And yes, that is definitely a workout! :)
