30 Week Challenge: Week 3

A little bit of mixed emotions today. Today was weigh in for week 3. I'm very pleased because I lost another 2.4 pounds bringing me to 249.8 total! The bad is I've pretty much quit the Candida Cleanse. I just couldn't do it anymore. However with that being said I've still done pretty well on it.

The first day we went to Amazing Jakes. This is when I went a little crazy, but not too overboard. I had a little of everything so dieting wise it was probably ok, just not for Candida. And then since then I've had a little bit of stuff here and there, but nothing to drastic. Mostly just dressings and tortillas. I am still intending to eat better through the year and well pretty much life. Whooo!

Part of my reasoning for quiting the cleanse was because it was really hard. Another part is I just keep getting discouraged. I keep thinking to myself, I'm working dang hard, DANG hard and I probably still wont get pregnant (which is the main reason for doing the cleanse). So I just kept telling myself it's not worth it. So now I'm just going to focus on losing the weight, and not the candidia.

This weeks goal is to do this total workout circuit workout. It has machines to work out arms and legs and then inbetween each machine you do cardio of different things on a step. I really like it, but don't always do it because it's easier to just get on the elliptical or bike and watch something. So my goal for this week and other weeks is to do it 3 times a week.

I really want to do the gym 5 times a week would be ideal. Here is my gym plan goal...
Sunday- REST
Monday- Circuit with elliptical
Tuesday- Bike, Elliptical Abs
Wednesday- Circuit with Bike
Thursday- REST
Friday- Elliptical, bike abs
Saturday- Circuit with arc trainer

A lot of people have Saturday be their rest day and then Sunday because of church, but I don't want to do 2 days of resting in a row. So I'm hoping to get to the gym on Saturdays. Planet Fitness is open 24 hours so really it should be possible. Even if I have to go after Ryder is in bed.

Of course this week is going to be different because Thursday evening we are heading up to Show Low until Monday. We'll of course go on a walk/ hike, but not much else.

My first milestone goal is at week 6 which is July 16, goal weight is 240. So a little over 2 pounds a week. I can do this!


  1. Great job! Keep it up! I'm rooting for you!

  2. thanks! Hope all is well with your family!
