  1. This week has not been too great. Food - Two of the days this week, I blew it. Both were due to unplanned greatness. The first day, my husband and I got re-acquainted with old friends. We had taco bell. Instead of getting something like a taco salad where I can avoid the flour shell, I got a stinking quesadilla. The second day, we had the opportunity for a date night. We haven't been able to do that in a very long time. We decided to try a new restaurant that serves the BEST steak I've ever had in my life. They also serve Mississippi Delta tamales. Sooo good. I only had two. Then the husba
  2. Normally I would have posted for the challenge the day it started - or maybe the day before. My wifi is out, and since my husband is the nerd in the family and currently extremely busy, I have been without internet. I have however already started the challenge. A ranger is the life for me - currently. I love to run and can currently run a 5k in about 30 minutes, but I also enjoy the results from weight lifting, so to pick one to focus on more than the other is impossible. This is why I chose this guild. As for may challenge... Part of what I'm doing in my diet is getting rid of the things
  3. This is the first challenge that I've felt so positive about. It was certainly a success. I only sucked 3 times in the entire 6 weeks in all of my 3 challenges. This was the second time I put sugar into a challenge. I can say that it is officially defeated! No snacking after dinner was another one. As well as I did, this one is very slippery and easy to fall back into. I have a feeling that I may be revisiting it the future. Finally, I added yoga to my workouts once a week. I love the way it makes me feel. I'm very excited about the next challenge. I already have in mind what I want to do.
  4. I ended my week the way I wanted to. Success. My scores are as follows: Sugar (Not as hard as the last time I tried) : I only had sugar 1 unplanned day during this challenge. A+ CON+5 Eating after dinner (by far the hardest part of this challenge): I ended up sucking twice. Not bad. A DEX+5 Yoga: (the easiest): I actually enjoyed doing this, and completed it without any problems. A+ WIS+5 This challenge was certainly a success! Looking forward to the next one!
  5. I'm in a size 8!!! Comfortably!!!! One more size to meet my main goal! Also, this week, I've lost over 2 pounds. I'm down to 156.8. Isn't that a wonderful number?! But not the most wonderful... (I don't want to get too comfortable.) So, this has been a pretty great week. I did have sugar Friday evening, but it was much less than I would normally do - about 1/2 c. of frozen yogurt. Not giving excuses; just telling it as it is. No after-dinner snacking. I did my yoga this week. It was a day later than usual, and I had to make myself do it, but I got it done. This is the last week o
  6. Another great week. No snacking. Yay! I ended up having 2 days of sweet this week because I forgot to plan for the rehearsal dinner. For that day, though, I only had some of a piece of chocolate cake. Because this was part of the wedding prep, I'm not counting that against my progress. Got my yoga done late morning Wed., but it got done. I've started losing weight at a great rate. Since my last post, I've lost 2 pounds, and I'm in my size 8 clothes again (my current main goal being a size 6). My goal this week is just to keep that weight off. Just 3 more weeks on this challenge. I
  7. I meant to post Monday, but forgot. Anyhoo, week three went surprisingly well. I only snacked one day - and it wasn't much (this is still difficult for me.) Exercise is most definitely becoming a habit for me again (YAY!) It has taken over two months for me to feel that way, but I've finally made it. Yoga was a success. Saturday was one of the cheat days I allowed myself with the sugar. My sister had her bachelorette party, and I wasn't going to miss that! Surprisingly, I had just the tiniest bit of sugar and didn't want any more. I had a small champagne float - 4 oz.-ish, a very thin t
  8. I accidentally posted this challenge twice. Please follow me here: http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/36963-challenge-3-jessimash-revisits-the-path-of-least-sugar/
  9. The end of week 2, and all is going well. The only problem I've had is snacking. I gave in one night this weekend, and it wasn't even satisfying. Hopefully I've learned my lesson. No sugar all week. One round of yoga. Six nights without snacking.
  10. Here it is, one week later, and it's been a complete success so far. I've resisted all sugar temptations and eating after dinner temptations, and I made myself do Yoga once this week. The hardest so far has been snacking after dinner. I wrote out a new schedule that will help keep me and my mind busy after dinner. I'm also doing fairly well at keeping up with the good habits I started with the last challenge. That part hasn't been perfect, but hopefully with the new schedule, it'll be easy to get back in line. Here's hoping that this week will be much easier.
  11. I'm cutting out the things that I know contain processed sugar for now. Reading a lot of ingredients and stuff. I'm allowing myself one cup of juice a day, and whatever fruit I want just to get me passed all the sugar. I've actually already begun to slow down on the amount of fruit I eat. I'll really start working on the fruit with the next challenge. Surprisingly, the snacking after dinner thing has actually been much harder than sugar for me. How weird is that?!
  12. My main quest is simply to get back to a dress size of 6. I am currently in a 10, so I expect this to take at least a year, but if I can achieve it sooner, you won't see me crying! I would call this challenge a success! I only missed one day of workout due to time/laziness. The rest that were missed (4) were due to injuries. I give this section a B (STR +1) I only missed 3 days of drinking the amount of water I had intended: A (CHA +1) And I completely avoided fast food. A+ (CON +1) Level up: Level 2

During this challenge I will be revisiting the goal that I failed 2 challenges ago - No sugar! I will continue to allow myself the mere 2 tsp. of sugar in my daily coffee. Also, there are 2 dates that I will be allowing myself to have sugar. These dates coincide with my sister's wedding. Other than that, there will be NO sugar in my diet for the next 6 weeks. I'm looking forward to seeing how much weight I manage
