Week Ten

WOW, what a week!

I have spent a large part of my week outside building a snow sculpture with the children for our Winter Carnival this weekend that is now almost melted away and the colours have amalgamated. I posted a picture of the final product before it melted...can you tell what it is?

The rest of the time was caring for a sick two year old, poor little guy has croup and could not catch his breath while trying to sleep.

I am pleased to report today though that I was down 3lbs this week.

To break it down further I have lost 22.2lbs in ten weeks which is 10.6% of my starting body weight and only 1.8lbs until my next reward!

It has been 70 days since I have eaten any sweets/desserts! It was my goal to eliminate sweets and desserts until my birthday so tonight I get to have a piece of German Chocolate Cake homemade by my mom to celebrate my 37th birthday!!! Then after tonight I plan to not have any sweets/desserts again until June 16th...that will be 100 days and when that day comes my husband and I are going to go on a date to have an ice cream cone at a ice cream shop about 1/2 hour from our home.

I was able to achieve my unspoken goal this week of getting up at 6am to exercise four days out of seven. Three of the four I did 6.6km walk/run and the other morning I did the 30 Day Shred level 2.

I am feeling good (and so is my 2 year old) so I am taking some time this morning to catch up on all of my favorite blogs!


  1. A rubix cube!? I love how you break down your goals in terms of eating desserts. Great idea to have an achievable goal in a doable amount of time. Yeah on your 3 pounds and glad you're all feeling better!

  2. Yep, it is a rubix cube. It is all melted now though.

  3. Happy Birthday! You are doing such an awesome job, Christine! You are a true inspiration!

  4. Wow - you are shredding your goals! I can't believe you've gone 70 days without sweets - don't think I could do that! Kudos :) Enjoy your cake & happy birthday!!

  5. I want to know if you're a good liar - check out my Tuesday post!
