I almost forgot to update you all....

I was just getting ready to call it a day when I realized I hadn't blogged about my weight loss journey. I need a good name for this blog series. Any ideas?

Okay, if you remember from last week's episode, my current goal is to work out everyday. Here's how that went for me....

Tuesday - Jumped Rope for 15 minutes -- nearly died
Wednesday - Played Tennis with Raylene -- not my best sport
Thursday - Jumped Rope again -- still dying - this is seriously the hardest exercise I've ever done. My calfs have never been so tight!
Friday - Did a bit of water aerobics while in the pool
Saturday - Tennis again - why do I keep subjecting myself to this?
Sunday - Hmmm....I don't think I did anything yesterday or today.

5 out of 7 days = not too shabby. I'd like to create a more scheduled fitness routine so that things like swimming and tennis are just bonus activity time instead of my actual workout. Therefore, this week's goal is to join a gym.

Speaking of joining things, today I decided to join Weight Watchers because I got an e-mail offer that I just couldn't refuse, and I accidentally stepped on the scale yesterday. It wasn't pretty, I've hit the three digit numbers. What's that, Internet? Most people weigh in at three digits? You may be right, regardless I am a card carrying member. Literally, I have a membership card, or a monthly pass as they call it. Kind of like a pool pass, but instead of getting to go hang out and get tan, I get to go hang out and get thin. At least I'm pretty sure it works similar to that. I don't know, I'll update you next week.


  1. Join Legacy with meeee!!!! I go several times a week to classes and it's SO fun. I even started doing water aerobics and since [mostly] everyone's 50+, I totally look like a rockstar in comparison. It does wonders for my self esteem.

    Regardless: it's only $15&somechange/month so it's totally cheaper then 24 Hr. or some other fancy schmancy place! We could tag team it and work out together.

  2. Monday you did a work out of sorts by being in the pool and doing swim lessons with the kiddos. So there's your exercise for that day. :)

  3. Jen, I think 5 out of 7 days is quite the accomplishment! I'm not sure if you're interested in doing some jogging or anything, but if so, I recommend the Couch to 5k program. Just google it and the link will come right up. I did it 2 years ago and lost about 20 pounds. It's a really good starting point!

  4. Dear Jenny, I think you are beautiful, but I respect the fact that you are trying to get healthier! It sure is hard work. Losing the baby weight was exhausting for me. I need to get back on a work out schedule. When I finish school I'm dragging my whole family up there to be your neighbors because I miss you way too much!!!!!
