WoW ~ Week 8

by | Mar 4, 2009 | WoW | 7 comments

It’s Wednesday, and time for me to report this weeks results. This past week, I only exercised twice, but I’ve been making healthier food choices and eating lots of lean protein, only whole grains (for the most part), lots of vegetables, some fruit, and staying away from sugar. I feel so much healthier, and as a result, I lost another 1 1/2 pounds. It has taken 8 weeks, but I have now lost 9 pounds and I am getting closer to being at a very healthy weight for me… I still would like to lose another 10-15 pounds, as well as build more muscle, but it is starting to seem like an achievable goal!

My Summary:

  • Week Eight Weight Loss/Gain: -1.5 pounds
  • Inches Loss/Gain: -1.75 inches
  • Overall Results: -9 pounds and -8.75 inches

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

    And my brother’s wedding in June has nothing to do with that! 😉

  3. Margaret

    How exciting! Good job.

    Are you talking about Brian’s wedding?

  4. Jessica Gordon

    So… what are you measuring and how are you measuring?!?! I have been losing pounds on the scale… but want to see it in some inches, but don’t know where to start!!

  6. Jessica Gordon

    I use the tape measure and guidelines back when I was on Herbalife. (That was right after I had Rascal — SEVEN years ago?? CRAZY!!) Anyway, I measure the following: Bust, Chest, Waist, Abs (I am sure they are there somewhere), Hips, Thigh, and Arm.

    This week I lost 1″ around my chest (my bust stayed the same), 1/2″ around my waist, and 1/4″ in my Thigh. The rest stayed the same as last week. It seems to vary each week.

    10-15 pounds, are you crazy? do you want to weight nothing??

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.
