    My name is Jenn I have 5 kids (1st one just left for college this year and another one that will be leaving next year). I am 39 and married to an amazing man. I work full time and have very little time to work out. Hopefully once the younger kids 10 and 13 get a little older, I will have more time. Right now I focus on eating right and maybe two to three times a week getting 45 minutes or so of cardio.

    Beginning Weight ~ 175-178
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 155.3
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 135
    My weigh in days will be Friday (these are usually my lowest weights, lol)


    November 20, 2018 ~ 155.3
    11/23 ~ 157.8 day after Thanksgiving uugggh
    11/30 ~ 153.8 that looks better
    December 7 ~ 152.3 I thought this week I would have been lower. Did really well. Not a drop of alcohol, clean eating, lots of water, and everything. I just don't think my body can lose 2 pounds a week no matter what. I am getting closer to my goal weight, so maybe that's why to. I am proud that I stuck to my plan this week and am down 1.5 pounds, so I'll take it!
    12/14 ~ 151.1 Going in the right direction for sure. Hopefully we can keep this pattern going!

    My name is Tish
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 177.2
    Challenge Goal Weight ~167 - 1/2 pound per week
    November 20, 2018 ~ 177.2 - 42 lbs left to reach my ultimate goal. It was 40 lbs on Nov. 9th when 175 appeared, then was rudely replaced by 177. Lol. This number loves me.

    11/27 ~ 178.8 - Been doing everything I should not the last 5 days; eating late in the day (8pm) eating bread, no electrolytes. One last croissant beckoning me today😊 and hopefully
    it's over.

    11/30 - 178.2 - Lol. Looks like I lost weight. Not. I prefer Wednesday's weight, 174.8😅 but obviously not that much since I ate pretzels last night. Keto carb havoc!
    December 4 - 😒 178.8 - That's rough , but better than yesterday. I think I should post daily weights for December.
    12/11 - 176.6 - Forgot it was weigh in day. By no means was this a linear loss. I was December 4 weight again yesterday!

    12/14 - 175.4 - Gotta post my own good report. I almost don't believe it. I was this weight once or twice during my traverse up and down the 170's since September! Praying it continues downward. I'm more than ready to be OUT of this decade! Doing EVERY THING RIGHT.

    Tish
    Challenge #1 ~ Sleep

    10h! - Tuesday (8:30pm) Don't know why I was so sleepy, but obviously needed the rest.
    7h - Wednesday (1am)
    9h - Thursday (10:30pm)

    6h30m ~ Friday 11/23 (11:40pm)
    6h30m ~ Saturday 11/24 (12:30am)
    7h20m ~ Sunday 11/25 (11:40pm)
    7h30m ~ Monday 11/26 (11:45pm)
    4h19m ~ Tuesday 11/27 (11:55pm) Woke up at 7:14am - active mind, restless night
    8h30m ~ Wednesday 11/28 (10:30pm) Magnesium oil!
    7h30m ~ Thursday 11/29 (11:30pm)
    Challenge #2 ~ Water

    11/30 - 96.9ozs, +39ozs other fluids
    12/1 - 68 ozs, +18ozs other fluids
    12/2 - 112ozs, +36ozs other fluids
    12/3 - 112 ozs, +36ozs other fluids
    12/4 - 128.9 ozs, +41ozs other fluids.
    12/5 - 144 ozs, +62ozs other fluids
    12/6 - 112oz, +60ozs other fluids


    ●Totals:
    ▪773.8 ounces of water
    ▪292 ounces other fluids
    ■1,065.8 ounces of fluids
    Averaged 152 ounces of fluid a day! I DO drink a lot of water, but I think my normal average per day is probably around 80- 90 ounces. Cold weather and slight cold and sore throat was the driving force behind that number.


    I keep my daily water totals here

    Challenge #3 ~ Breathe /deep breathing

    12/7 - Probably not even 1 minute, but I did it.
    12/8 - 3 minutes, holding breathe for a count of 10. Every time I retrain for deep breathing, I notice that I yawn a LOT. I'll add on to tomorrow's post if I do another session tonight.
    12/9 - 4 min
    12/10 - 2 min
    12/11 - 5 min
    12/12 - 3 min, twice
    12/13 - 5 min
    I always breathe through my nose, just need to focus on breathing deeper for longer each day.

    Challenge #4 ~ Cardio

    12/14 - Raked leaves, yard cleanup for 60 minutes.

    I’m in. I need all the support I can get. I will do my best to support all of you too. Goal 190. So that is 2 lbs a week.

    My challenge for the week...be kind to 3 strangers per day. Just a complement is all it takes.

    Thank goodness Tish mentioned being able to break the cardio up into segments. Even with all my shopping, running and working I have been able to fit in 3 10 minute segments per day of aerobic dancing. All it takes is 2 to 3 songs and it's fun!

    December 14= 30 minutes
    December 15= 30 minutes
    December 16= 30 minutes
