Fitness Friday: The Holiday Edition

Today it's all up to you. IF you want to post. WHAT you want to post about. It's a free topic week--so enjoy. (If you have time.)

Thanksgiving turned out to be a breeze for me. We had a stomach bug at our house so this was the first day S and I were eating real food anyway. You know you aren't hungry very much after that so I ate, I got full, I stopped. End of story.

And my inches lost this week totals up to 8 1/2!!!! Eight and a half inches off of my body since we started and here's the real kicker: I haven't done a lick of exercise yet.

I KNOW I KNOW I'm the one who started this whole thing on my blog but it's true. I'm sorry. I don't have a gym membership and I just haven't done a thing. So all you ladies who keep typing, "Oh I only worked out 2 times ALL WEEK..." you can start feeling better now. 'Cause you are doing double of what I am doing. :)

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I have a very exciting event coming up this weekend that I can't wait to blog about when I get home--if everything works out like I hope it will!!!! I can't promise it will be exciting to you, but it will be to me. And if you can live through my normal posts, this should be a good break from reality.

Have a great weekend everyone! (And I'm not worried about how the title says "Friday" but I'm really posting on Thursday because clearly, from the looks of some of our Mr. Linky's, "Friday" is just a suggestion for "sometime between Friday and Tuesday." HA HA!)


  1. Happy belated Thanksgiving, Brenda!

    And not to be an enabler, but I didn't start exercising until 13 weeks in my Weight Watchers journey. I knew I couldn't tackle two habits at once--I had pour my energies into learning how to eat differently, then once I had a handle on that I added the exercise piece. It's all about what you can handle & what you need, based on where you are. And I didn't join the gym right away, either--I used a pilates video my sister-in-law gave me and I walked a trail across from our apartment complex. Baby steps, my overachieving friend! (Said with great empathy that only comes from being an overachiever myself. Must be a teacher thing...)

    Oh, and CONGRATS ON THE 8 1/2 INCHES!! And I can't wait to hear your exciting news...

  2. Ouch, the stomach flu!! Glad you're all feeling better. That does tend to do a good job of suppressing appetite...but no fun.

    Don't worry about what you haven't accomplished yet, just be glad of the good choices you are making now! Well done.

  3. God works in mysterious ways sometimes, doesn't He? Even if it is a flu bug!!! one holidya down, one to go! 8 1/2 inches!! WOW!!! Congratulations Brenda! I am SO proud of you :) (I need to get to work to catch up!)

  4. I've been out of the loop for a couple of weeks, but will be back next Friday! Glad you're keeping up the fun and the LOSSES!!

  5. Great job with the weight loss. You are really inspiring me.


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
