Weight Loss Program: Hot 100 Update--#6

These are my goals from the Hot 100 Challenge and my progress on them.

1. Blog at least 3 times a week--Blogging helps me stay focused and helps me process all aspects of this journey.  When I don't blog, I keep it all in my head and don't figure things out as quickly as I can.  When I'm not blogging, it's usually because I'm stressed and mentally tired.  That's when I need to push through and write.  Write a little.  This is my #1 goal.  Blog at least 3 times a week.

2. Complete four days of toning per week--I actually did nothing with this goal this week.  I didn't do any of the research about what toning program I want to do.  This will be a priority for next week.

3. Fit into a size 14 pants by the end of the challenge.--I'm still moving along with this goal.  I know I will make it.

4. Get at least 7 hours of sleep per night.--Aggghhhh!  But several nights of sleep by 10...EXCEPT...I would wake up in the middle of the night anyway!

5. Slow down my eating so that it takes at least 20 minutes.-Doing well with this goal.

6. Drink 100 oz of water a day--So-so with this goal.  At least 50-75 oz almost every day though.

7. Blog my food journal EVERYDAY--Got a little better by entering my food in the food/calorie counter on FitPal but still not consistent.  

8. No protein bars for a month--Perfect on this one.

I had a better week this week than last.  I decided to take the body type test for the program I'm on and learned that my body type has changed, so I've altered my eating program according to the new type.  It's going well.  I felt a lot more in control this week and got my butt refocused.  I'm buckling down for the final push to get these last 42 pounds off of me for good!

OK, so that's my HOT 100 UPDATE! How are you other hotties doing? I'll see you soon on your blog!


  1. Come on! You can do it!! 44 more pounds! I can't wait to see the final result!!!

  2. Toning is great for you. You don't need any fancy program. Back to basics stuff like the shit we hated in PE works great-sit ups, push ups, leg lifts, plank. I started with the resistance bands (or giant rubbie bands my daughters call them) When I bought mine they came with all kinds of exercises for all my parts. I bought the long ones and short ones at Target for cheap-o. You are rocking this challenge!

  3. You are doing the dern thing! Slowing down eating helps a lot.

  4. You are doing great. You have a lot of goals set to keep up with but you're doing great.

  5. Better this week than last, that is a great summary. Just get a little better each week; imagne where you will be in3 minths, 6, 12...

    Have a great weekend!

  6. I think you are doing great - just keep at it!

  7. Thanks guys. I'm pretty focused I think. I'm getting this done.
