The perfect 10 - Week 3

Friday went by so fast it didnt even make a woosh sound! Sorry *blush* I was barely on the PC yesterday as I had a bazillion errands to run, including waiting at my Mom's for her garden service to arrive.

So how are my goals for this challenge?
1) Get to 110kg (242lb) by the wedding: I guess not every week will be perfect. This week I put on 600g (1.3lb) according to the scale on thursday (will check again today at gym and update with an edit) The reasons for this are simple. On monday I made a wrong move and hurt my knee so wasnt able to train hard this week and on tuesday I had an athma attack in response to a cat allergy and was given a double dose of cortisone, so that also slowed my training and made me retaint water. I am now 115kg (253.5lb).

2) Track every single day and stay under my points: I tracked every day and only went over my points (by 1.5) on 1 day

3) Train for at least 5 hours a week: I dont know if I will make it this week. The athma attack on tuesday happened 20min into my training time and so cut that short and I have been unable to train well the whole week. I am going to gym as soon as I finish this entry and train for as long as possible.

I guess not every week will be perfect and I need to accept that.

Now for my weekly secret:
After last weeks really serious one I thought this should be a fun one. When I turned 4 my mom made me throw away my pacifier(we call it a dummy). She made a big show of it and took photos and made me feel sooo proud that I dont ever recall having "withdrawl symptoms" Since then when ever I quit something I try make a big show of it.


  1. I think a less than stellar week because of asthma is perfectly acceptable. Your gain is probably all water. I hope this is a great week for you!

  2. I'll have to give the "big show" idea to my sister as my 3 1/2 year old niece is steadfastly REFUSING to give her binky up! We're all thinking she's going to have to go to kindergarten with it and have the other kids make fun of her before she'll let the darn thing go.

  3. Sorry to hear about your knee and the asthma attack. I like that you just accept it and move on. Tracking your points was something that was within your control and you did great!

  4. That's a really good idea for moms who have kids with pacis.

    Sorry to hear about your leg. Hope you can get movin' soon!
