Thursday "Moment of Truth"

Well, y'all.... I am offically joining P.O.M. in her "Moment of Truth Monday". I wasn't going to do it because I am not fond of sharing my weight, especially since it shot up 10+ pounds since last spring (despite the clothing fitting the same). But, who better to share it with and get great motivation from then all my friends out there in bloggerland?!

It's not so much that I really want to lose weight, I think I am more bothered by the fact that I have gained weight when working so hard at the gym. But, I find that this will be helpful in getting myself to eat better. I have already given up soda... why not try eating better!?!

Here's the criteria:
  • Post current weight
  • Post goal weight
  • Post reward if goal is achieved by February 2008
Here's what I got... gulp:
  • Current weight: 1 *cough* 5 *cough* 0
  • Goal weight: 135
  • Reward if achieved by February 2008: Massage after completing first Triathlon!
I will be posting my progress... if any, on monday in the "Moment of Truth Monday" weigh in. Yuck. Take it or leave it people! Hopefully there will be some progress. It's definitely a moment of truth.... time to cut back on the cupcakes and beer!

Any tips on easy and healthy lunches, snacks, and dinners for "traithlete's in training" would be helpful! I don't have time to spend stand around the stove!

I'm thinking about joining the challenge too. Best wishes!!

For what it's worth, I've gain weight (not lost) in the past year while being more active. Shrug. If you can lose or maintain, I think you're doing well.

Stacy, you SO need to up your reward. I personally will contribute to something grander. Sure a massage is GREAT, but come on girl...make it an all day spa treatment at least... where's your Paypal I'll put it no my calendar to send money that day.

I promise you keep swimming, and you'll see results! Also, as a triathlete in training, some focus should be on "looking better" too. You are bound to trade off some less desirable weight for muscle weight...

akshaye said...

well.. one thing to consider.. if everything fits the same, it may just be that you've packed on some muscle. Since it is denser it weighs more. So, just weight isn't the only thing to go by!

Good luck with the challenge!

You can do it! I think you should reward yourself with something even more than a massage...give yourself that for doing the triathalon!

For dinners, I LOVE Racheal Ray 30 min. meals. I also LOVE soup. I'll cook a bunch on the weekend and eat leftovers all week. Fresh, healthy & easy!

So glad you're doing the challenge too!

May I suggest some smaller goals along the way so it won't be so daunting? Like maybe set your first mini-goal for the end of Nov. (ex: lose 5 lbs) and have a mini-reward for meeting each monthly goal. As for your Feb. reward, I think you should have one for meeting your goal weight and then save the massage as a reward for doing the tri! (My most recent chapter I'm studying in my personal training book is about setting goals. . . can you tell?) :)

For food, make sure you get enough protein and carbs. Too many people avoid carbs when trying to lose weight, but you are training and you NEED those carbs. I would highly recommend keeping a food journal. Then you can plan how to adjust your intake after seeing what your patterns are.

Crockpot!! That's all I can say. It's easy, you can make stuff and have it ready for when you get home...:) For healthy and active, I like to make up a big pot of spaghetti sauce on a weekend, then freeze it, in the little half cup serving size glad containers (I make my own and control what's in it so it's really healthy!) then heat up some wheat pasta, heat up one of those little containers with a side salad and piece of garlic bread (on wheat bread) and you have a very quick, healthy meal that has everything an athlete needs.

Whoo hoo - another partner in LOSS.

GEORGE FORMAN! Easy way to grill up one piece of fish or chicken and not have to deal with too much drama. You can even do veggies.

J~mom said...

Mendy said...

Damn. You too! I gotta join. I'll start my challenge on monday! Great job!

Nicole said...

OmG! I'm doing this too and our weight and goal are the same! We can do it though I'm sure of it.
