and I am the person who has to do the work.

Shrinkvivor Week 2

Well, it's the first weigh in after the initial let's get started weigh in. I am thrilled to say that I lost 2.2 pounds. I worked hard for that loss and I'm proud of it.

I have been going to classes twice a week. We had boot camp on Thursday and Tuesday and it was brutal, but man I got a great workout. I am also doing workouts at home on different days. I logged 467 exercise minutes this week.

I'm still trying to do the C25K program. I have to admit that I won't be done by the 5k because I have repeated more than one week. I'm old and have a bad knee and a bad ankle. It is hard on my joints when I come pounding down on them with all my weight. But I keep doing it because I swore to myself that I would run the entire 5k. I don't know if that will happen or not now. It's hard and to be totally honest with you all, I do not like running. This is like the third or fourth time I've tried to run and I still hate it. I guess we just wait till October 22 and see what happens.

I've been pretty on track with my eating. I didn't have any fast food but that really isn't a challenge for me. I gave up fast food a year or so ago. I am lucky in the fact that if I try to eat it now, it literally makes me sick. I'm following an eating plan that my fitness coach set up for me and it's not too bad. I love Friday! That is my free day with no exercise and I get to eat anything I want.

Tribe Maroon become the Maroon Maniacs. I love my tribe. They are a great bunch of supportive ladies. Unfortunately, we lost one of our members before we even got started. She never weighed in for the first weigh in. I don't understand why people sign up for challenges if they have no intention of doing it. Makes no sense to me at all.

Hope everyone had a great week. I have no idea what will happen tomorrow. If I'm the first to go to Exile Island, so be it. I'd like to spend a little time here though. We'll see what happens. Good luck everyone.


  1. great job on the minutes and the loss. I'm anxiously awaiting tribal council tomorrow also!

  2. You killed it on the minutes this week! WTG Nancy!

  3. NANCY.... ^5 to my fellow MANIAC!!! Way to go! You are right we have a great team. I'll be honest my girls KILLED me with the exercise this week, they pushed and shamed me in to it ( I didnt wanna exercise some days)

  4. WOW - you did AMAZING!! That's a huge amount of fitness minutes, and a great loss!!

    Keep up the great work!!

  5. Holy MINUTES!! Rock on, sister!

    I do not really like running either. There, I said it.

  6. Woo hoo, maniac sister!!! Slow and steady is an awesome way to go, and really losing just a couple pounds each week lends itself better to the long term weight loss anyway. :) Keep on keepin' on!!!

  7. Truth? I don't like running, either. I usually run and think, Why am I doing this? WHYYYYYY? But I like how I feel AFTER I run and that keeps me out there.
