For those who follow me on Twitter/Facebook… you may have heard me mention my “5 lbs in 2 weeks” goal. For me, that’s a lot… and given my schedule the last couple of weeks, kinda dumb for me to think that I could do it.

I’m again blogging in the airplane (I’m officially OBSESSED with in-flight wifi) so, needless to say… I haven’t weighed myself yet.  However, given what my weight was last I checked, it’s pretty fair to guess that I didn’t make it. 🙁

So, why did I set this goal? Because again… I’m closer than ever before to my “wedding weight”.  I SOOO badly wanted to fit into my wedding dress for my 29th birthday (which is Monday).

ARGH! I should have squeezed in more work outs than I did. I’m a bit disappointed in myself 🙁

…. there’s always healthy train 5, right?! ARGH!

So, on that note, how did YOU do???? Were you able to stick to your mini goal? Me? I stuck to mine BEAUTIFULLY! A quick refresher: I wanted to go to bed before 1:30 on at least 8 of the nights… as I’m a bit of an insomniac.  Well… I TOTALLY exceeded that goal by going to bed before midnight  all but 4 nights. That’s huge for me 😀

What’s YOUR mini goal for the next two weeks?

  • Drink more water?
  • No snacks after 8pm?
  • Walk the dogs 5 days/week after work?
  • In bed before midnight?
  • No more soda?
  • Try 2 new fitness classes?
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator/escelator?
  • 50 pushups/lunges/situps/etc a day?

Be sure to include what your mini goal is down there in the comment section… it will help hold you accountable and give the rest of us ideas for our mini goals. 😀

Mine? hmmmm…. OH! I’ve got it… minus my birthday celebration and the traveling to Valparaiso next weekend… no going out to eat 😀 So, no temptations with inviting me out to eat, k? If you want to hang with me… we’re walking instead of eating. Got it? GOT IT!

And for the top 5?

Jill Pollitt    15.2%
Stephanie Wortley    9.71%
Jessica Seamon      7.59%
Devan Whitson    7.37%
Michelle McDonnell      7.28%

BOOOOOYAH!!!!!! those are some AWESOME numbers!!!!! 😀 😀 😀

To those on the train, be sure to weigh in via the Google doc first thing today! :D

Speaking of the Google doc… there are 7 of you who have never logged in and reported loss…. and 12 of you who only weighed in the first time. I’m going to go ahead and assume that you’re no longer interested in being on the train, it’s a bit of a bummer. Howeer, each of us have to decide, on our own, when we’re ready to make this happen… so, we hope to see you guys here on the next round of the train 😀

A few quick reminders:

  • Next official weigh in is June 11.
  • If you’re a twitterer, be sure to add the hashtag #healthytrain to your HT tweet.
  • Join  “bobbi’s healthy train” group on Facebook… ANYONE can join… not just the people with the before pics. My trainer is an admin … so if you have fitness questions, ask ‘em there!  Dane is also an admin, so if you have questions about diet/need motivation… he’s the guy to talk to. We’d love to have you… :D
  • You don’t have to be officially competing to participate.
  • If you haven’t measured yourself yet, DO IT!
  • We’ll be taking optional “progress pics” July 23 to keep the motivation levels high, oh… and I fully expect the top 5 to join in on that, we’d love to see what these huge numbers are looking like… OHHHH YESSSSSS!!!!
  • Finale date is October 29th.

I adore you guys… thanks for keeping us all motivated! 😀

PS. after looking at that wedding photo, I couldn’t be more pleased with the progress of my personal mission, “Operation: Grow Back Eyebrows.” Those things were thinnnnnnn! I’ve been in full swing since February… and these things are lookin’ a little Bert (&Ernie)… but in the end, this will be fully worth it. 🙂
