Slim Down Saturday Week 6

Sorry I am late with this friends! It snowed last night so we just HAD to take Payton to play in it. And by snowed... I mean less than half an inch. She is definitely a southern kid to think that was exciting. Good thing she likes it since she will be exposed to a whole lot more of it next year. But anyways... onto the topic of the post...
Week 6 of Sim Down Saturday. I am sorry I never got the chance to hop around last weekend. We were out of town with family and I just now realized I never looked at the post. It was a chaotic weekend to say the least.

Ultimate goal- lose 25-30 pounds. I want to feel happy with how I look. 

Gain/Loss for this week: down 1.6 pounds...since two weeks ago. I didn't weigh last week since I was away with no scale. 

Total since starting- Down 5.4 pounds. I know this isn't a lot since this is week 6, but it is better than what I was doing before I started this... slow and steady for now.

Positives from the week: I found out I still have a vitamin D deficiency... so I am on vitamin D pills- one a week for 8 weeks then one a month for 3 months. Hopefully this will help. Also, I forgot to put this in the picture BUT... the number in the tens place of my weight has gone down! Here's to it NOT going back up!

Something to do better: Must I say it? Drink more water.  I am never thirsty! I have been doing pretty good with finishing what I bring to work, which is only 20 ounces. But once I get home, I just don't drink it. There has to be a way to remember to drink water! Anyone have any good ideas?

Goal for this week: Since I have fallen off the workout wagon completely, I want to do 100 situps a day 5x this week. My stomach and legs are my target area so I am going to focus on the stomach for now. 

One word: De-stress. I feel like for the most part I am getting a lot better with managing my stress and I want to continue!

And the wordle:

Since I missed a week, I can't wait to see what everyone has been up to!!


  1. My tens place went down this week too! It's so silly, yet so motivating. I just started doing a 31-day challenge for arms, legs, and abs. You can find them on Pinterest. To drink more water. I try to chug a bottle of water on my way home from work or the gym. Good luck!

  2. You go girl! Slow and steady wins the race! My suggestion for more water....get a Culligan machine with some buddies at school. Several of us pitch in some money each month and share a machine. It helps with the water intake. I bring a big Tervis Tumbler and have the kids fill it up for me a few times a day. It helps to involve them because they will ask if they can refill for me. Just an idea!

  3. Great job! Slow and steady is definitely how my body works also. Not completely sure what happened this week though. :-/ I am doing the Abs and squat challenge, which is daily crunches, situps and squats. It has been hard, but very worth it! Hope you had a good week!

  4. Congrats on going down a tens place! I love it when that happens! I have a heard time with water once I get home too! Maybe set an alarm...that's worked for me in the past! Alison's idea of having kids remind you is a great idea too! They sometimes get annoying with reminding of things...LOL!
