It’s Wednesday!

by | Mar 12, 2008 | WoW | 4 comments

Can you believe another week has gone by already? Time for my WOW (Weight on Wednesday) check in.

Well, I was fairly good about my food choices this past week, but as far as exercising went, I really didn’t do all that much, unless ice skating Friday, ballroom dancing with hubby Friday night, and then cleaning the garage Saturday count–I am still sore! 🙂

Anyhow, I’m not complaining… I did better than last week! This morning I was down one pound from last Wednesday. This is actually great since you have to burn 3500 calories more than you consume in order to lose one pound in a weeks time.

My goals for this next week are to continue eating well, work on drinking more water, and to exercise at least 3 times.


  • Week two progress: -1
  • Overall progress: -1.5
  • Total Inches lost: 4 *

*This is a combination of 6 measurements, and is very motivating, especially when the actual weight loss is not all that much!

    All of those things you mentioned ARE actually exercising!!! And fun too! I love exercising that doesn’t feel like exercise. Way to go!

  2. Jessica Gordon

    Me too!!! Now, if I could just get hubby to want to go Ballroom Dancing on a regular basis… It was so much fun! (even with Snuggles in my sling most of the time!) 🙂

  3. The Wades

    Sounds great to me! Good job losing weight. How fun going ballroom dancing with hubby! Well, for me it sounds like torture. But, I know it would be fun if I knew how to dance. 🙂

  4. Jessica Gordon

    The cool thing was that they had an hour of classes before the dance!!! We got a crash course on the Waltz, the box step, night club two step, swing, and another that I don’t remember what it was called! 🙂 It was so much fun!!

    Normally the ballroom has classes on just one type of dance, but since it was their 10th anniversary, they were having a big party including presentations!!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
