WoW ~ Week 6

by | Apr 9, 2008 | WoW | 3 comments

Exciting stuff!!! This week I am down 1.5 pounds!!! This is a record week for me so far.

Now, it is probably just because I was in pain all weekend, with a pinched nerve in my back, and have been sick with a cold since Monday… But, hey, whatever works! 😉

As far as my goals from last week. I didn’t complete them all, but considering the above, I did pretty good.

On Thursday the kids and I had a blast doing a 30 Minute Walk and Jog (which translates to 2.5 miles covered!), but that was it for the extra exercise… Most of the Easter candy is gone. I made it out to my parents and used their sauna Saturday morning–actually, I think this has been the biggest help–even though I have only used it twice–since the infrared rays help knock toxins loose from fat cells into the body. And, I did look into getting my food allergies tested… I am now waiting for a call back on how much our insurance will cover, to see if it is doable or not.

Overall, I think it was a successful week!

My goals for this next week:

  • Get better!
  • Walk at least 2 days. (Since 3 is just not happening.)
  • Head out to my parents to use their sauna again.
  • Continue research on Allergy testing.


  • Week five progress: -1.5
  • Total lost in WoW: -4.5 pounds

The most exciting thing is, that I FINALLY weigh less than hubby!!! We are about the same height–he is slightly taller if I’m not wearing heels, and he is in great shape. It has been depressing, weighing more than him, the last couple years. So, I am very happy!

Well, it’s time to head to town for Captains class once again… (Which is going GREAT!)

    I’ve been the same weight for a year and I have been running three times a week. I guess maybe at some point I will need to thing of restricting calories…but I exercise so I don’t have to diet.

    Good Job Jess!
    Keep up the good work 🙂
    Maybe sometime we could go for a walk or jogging.

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.
