Father's Day Challenge: Week Three Report

I am a bit behind in reporting.  Have I been too busy?  Well, yes, but I was also afraid to step on the scale! :)  

Life happens sometimes like visiting family and baking daughters. The diet and exercise plan went out the window.  At those times it is hard to post about it.  I don't want to admit that I give in to my flesh.  I don't want to admit that I do that which I don't want to do.  Oh, I am weak.

Sarah's cupcakes up close.  Can you read "spring time?"

Now, I didn't go totally over board and eat three of my daughters' cupcakes in one day.  Well, okay, yes I did.  But I also tried to keep other parts of my goal.  Does it make it better that I wasn't as bad as I really wanted to be?  Yeah, probably not. 

Well, either way, I determined to give my all this week.  I am not subbing anymore of course since public school is out.  We are finishing up our last two weeks of 7th, 4th and 1st grade here so I have a little more time to devote to exercise.  

In two days, I have biked 30 miles and walked 3.5.  I have also worked out with weights each day.  I weighed this morning and I was down 2 more pounds for a three week loss of 12 pounds.  So I am nearly half way to my goal of 25 pounds lost.  With only 12 days left, I am trying to make the most of everyday!

Thanks again for keeping me in your prayers.  

Can't really have a post without showing my other two sweet girls, so here is what the younger two were doing during the baking.
They were playing Wii. :)

I also missed getting a picture of Aunt Leah's birthday cake but the girls really had fun making it even if they were late. It looked like this one only the candy was Reese's Pieces and a white bow.

With All My Heart~


  1. Way to go! I am down to the lowest weight yet, down to 163.4. Tomorrow I get to see if there is any more progress, though I haven't exercised at all this week. Still keeping with the eating side of the plan...but it is hard. I want cake. And a sub. With fries.

    Can't wait for Father's Day!

    1. That is great Dan! I went to the store tonight after posting this and nearly put 3 different desserts in my cart! Looking forward to that Father's Day celebration too! :)

  2. Well, I guess it is confession time, huh? I have gone backwards myself! Up two pounds....got depressed and ate even more! Yuck! What a vicious cycle. Trying to get back on track. Scared of my scale again!! My only consolation is that I AM 60 lbs lower than my highest recorded weight.
    I didn't eat Hannah's or Sarah's cupckes on Sunday...or any other dessert. Eating alone is my problem. You are doing good in my opinion. Praying for you....keep praying for me! Love, Mom

    1. I know what you mean Mom! I didn't eat any dessert at church. Too busy, like you, talking and enjoying the fellowship! If we had not brought any home I would have been good to go! :) Still I need to tell my flesh no. One cupcake is okay. Three is not. Doing better this week. The best way to fight temptation is to steer clear of it. Praying for you! Love you! Eva

    2. Thanks,Eva....back down 1 lb today....fighting temptation to not eat candy and make a " mug cupcake"!! I HATE to have to re-lose lbs already lost once! :(God is so good! Amen! Thanks for prayers!
