WoW ~ Week 7

by | Feb 25, 2009 | WoW | 5 comments

Time to report my Weight on Wednesday once again… This past week wasn’t too bad! Last week I started following the food suggestions in Making the Cut by Jillian Michaels. I was able to keep my daily calories between 1200-1400, and never felt hungry. In just four days (Tues-Fri), I lost three pounds! However, with all my running around on Saturday and Sunday, and knowing that Lent was starting today, I didn’t count calories over the weekend. After eating too much of Rascal’s super yummy First Communion Cake, I got back to my diet on Monday, and even with yesterday being “Fat Tuesday” I still get to report a two pound loss for this week! Now, if only I could keep it up and get back to exercising. That’s what I’ll be working on this week… Well, that and getting over this cold.

My Summary:

  • Week Seven Weight Loss/Gain: -2 pounds
  • Inches Loss/Gain: -.5 inches
  • Overall Results: -7.5 pounds and -7 inches

To see everyone’s stats, or to join in the fun, head on over to Regina’s!

    My husband and I recently started the paleo diet. We are so amazed at how great we feel I thought I would share!

    Thanks everyone!

    Fun ~ Thanks for sharing about the paleo diet. I was just looking at the website. It sounds great!

    Tracy ~ I figured someone would ask… I just didn't have time to expand on it last night. So far I just took her quiz to figure out what sort of "oxidizer" I am (slow, balanced, or fast) and have been eating the foods listed in her "grocery list" for the balanced oxidizer and keeping the calories to 1200-1400 each day. She has tons of recipes too and does give a menu to follow, but I just haven't had much time to try any of them. Basically I have cut out all refined sugar, and white flour, white rice etc.. Breakfast is usually 1 cup of Kashi GoLean with 1/2 cup milk (which I am really not suppose to have due to my intolerance, and trying to find out if soy works with her diet?) and 2 eggs with a bit of Mrs. Dash. Lunch has been LaTortilla Factory Wraps with spinach, turkey breast, a bit of Kraft Free Mayo and Dijon. Snacks for been half of apple with 1 TBS natural peanut butter, Light & Fit Dannon yogurt, or Ezekiel bread with Simply Fruit jam for example, and some of the "cheats" are the sugar free jello, diet hot cocoa, popcorn with I can't believe it's not butter(Which I can't believe I'm actually using!! 😉 ), there is much more on the list, and I am looking forward to trying some of her recipes.

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.
