Fitness Friday Week 8

Fitness Friday
<a href="" target="_blank"><img src=""></a>

Welcome to Week 8 of Fitness Friday!!!
Danielle from We Have It All and I have teamed up to encourage each other in becoming healthier and we are hoping you will join us!

Every Friday, Danielle and I are going to post an update which will include things like diet changes, weight loss, inches lost and activity goals along with the failures or achievements of our past week. We plan on posting a photo so we can see our progress. Hopefully for me, this means losing enough weight to fit into back into my pants that I wore before having Sweet Pea… and hopefully a more fit and healthy body over all.


Each Fitness Friday post will include a linky. Anyone who wants to get healthy with us can write a post and link up, that way we can all stop by your blog and show you some love and encouragement. If you are not a blogger, we would love for you to post these things in our comment section below our post and we will still show you the same love and encouragement!

The rules are simple!

Just grab our button and put it in your Fitness Friday post or on your sidebar and add your link to our linky! Post however much or however little you’d like. If you are not comfortable posting your weight, then don’t. If you’d like to share a photo – great! Either way, we hope that this encouragement helps us all to become more healthy. Visit as many as you can in the linky below and show them encouragement!

I will try my best to post on Thursday nights and the linky will be open for the whole week

Week 8: I SUCK at Exercise and Posting!!!

HI! This is currently what I dislike and am currently trying to work on… I do not like how big my stomach and thighs are. I really hate that people keep coming up to me and asking when I am due and I'm not pregnant. I can NOT wait to lose my belly!
  • Current Weight: Last time I posted  I was at 136.2 lbs. This week I am down a little to 135.4 lbs.  My goal is to get back down to around 125lbs. I use to wear a comfortable size 6 in pants and now I am going into a size 10. I was comfortable in a size 6. I’d love to get back down to that size! I am not doing this to really lose the weight I am wanting to tone up more and get my body back in shape and healthy.
  • Activity Performed during the week, accomplishments or failures: I did a lot of stairs and walking this week.  I'd like to run but with the weather starting to get cold I don't see it happening due to me having asthma. My hubby is also wanting to lose weight and get fit as well and has been participating in Fitness Friday too with his blog Cowboyz and Angels.
  • Diet Changes, accomplishments or failures: I do not diet! I do not like the word I think using the word sets you up for failure. But I do like to change things about my diet to help make myself healthier. So far I have cut down on the pop I drink and also switched to caffeine free pop for while at home. I have been trying to drink more water which is hard for me because I am not a fan of water. Another thing I have been doing is not eating after 8pm. This week I did good with not eating after 8pm! But if I do eat after 8pm I try to get something healthy. I also started to try to find ways to make my meals healthier by cutting down on the fats and sodium intake. I also have been trying to cook more from scratch and by using fresh produce so we aren't getting all the preservatives and additives.
  • Goals for the following week:
    • Weight – I’d like to be 134 but any amount of weight that I lose will make me very happy!
    • Activity – If I could walk a mile once over the weekend and walk at least 3 times per week, I will be happy with myself.
    • Diet – I’d still like to work on cutting down on the pop…I'd like to just have 1 per day. And more water. No eating past 8pm…

      Please join us, the more we have participating, the easier it will be to keep going and reach our goals! Be sure to visit as many as you can in the linky… and encourage one another.
