Fit Mommy Friday!

Heather —  November 12, 2010

Curious? You can see my Fit Mommy Challenge Post. Today, I need to list how I am doing on my goals in the challenge.


  1. My goal: To continue to eat only organic foods- Did This, no eating out this week
  2. To lose 10 Lbs for Christmas- Well, have not lost any yet.
  3. To drink wine at most 1-2 nights per week, a maximum of 2 glasses- Blew this, I know, it doesn’t matter its organic. My husband pointed that out….
  4. To not eat at all after 7:30 pm- Did eat several times after 7:30. I kept forgetting. Noticed I look for carbs- crackers, things like that after kids are settled and I’m tidying kitchen
  5. To not eat/taste batter/appetizers etc while Holiday cooking- Did not eat while cooking, except when I put out appetizers for company. I probably ate way too many calories there, talking and moving around
  6. To incorporate more veggies into my diet- Ate carrots for snack 2x, purposefully did not buy anything like pretzels. Added more veges to lunches
  7. To exercise at least 4x per week- Exercised officially 2x.

ok. So there you have it. Not a great re-start. But, I kept putting it off, then the week was almost gone. I was more aware and mentally noticing my weaknesses, rather than trying not to!

Now that I’ve faced my weaknesses…yuck….I have high hopes for this upcoming week.

    Good for you! There are weeks when exercising twice would be a great goal, and this is one of them. A few months ago, I was in the gym almost every day. I got a little demotivated because the workouts made no difference at all to my weight. (I guess I was hungrier and ate more?) I actually almost happy with my weight, but I will definitely gain weight over the long haul if I don’t exercise. Thanks for sharing your checklist- It’s a good wake up call for me.

  2. I like the organic wine!

    • It is nice, yes? Haha. Also, I think sulfites bother me–some organic wines have few or no sulfites…which is good!

  3. That’s a great goal! The holidays can be horrible for the waistline. Taste makes waist, right? Filing that one away for myself. 😉

  4. You’ve met some of your goals, and are noticing the others. That’ a great step ahead, you know!

    If you feel like snacking in the evening, that would be a good time to eat some veggies. Last night my husband brought a small plate of tomato, avocado, and cucumber wedges to my computer. Yum!

    Just keep right on going!

  5. I think this is a great start! You have goals and are working to meet them! Keep it up…you’re doing great.

  6. You are realizing your weaknesses and I know that you will be more aware for the upcoming week. You are doing great. Trying not to eat during the holidays is not easy…but you are aware of it and you will succeed!!!
