Hot 100 – Week 2 Update

So, week 2 of the Hot 100 Challenge is done!

My goals for the first third of the challenge are:

Hot 100 Goals for October:
Scale Goal: See any kind of a weight loss by the time my mother-in-law leaves, which should be by the end of this month.
Emotional Goal: Not get offended when my mother-in-law offers a comment she thinks will help me with my “diet”. She hasn’t made more than maybe two in a week, but I found myself getting angry right away. Yet, when I thought more on it…she was right. Ouch.
Today I am feeling: Good!

I finally got some real exercise in yesterday and it felt very good. Last Friday I was down some more, which means I’m getting farther and farther away from where I was when MIL came. So, that’s helping me meet my October goals.

I’m a little PMS’y this week, so I had a few days of munchies. Not too bad, but more chocolate a couple of days than I needed. Though Monday and Tuesday nights I didn’t have “real” hot cocoa because I knew I had to be careful.

Comments are fine. Mother-in-law laughed when I declined the yummy, rich Abuelita’s cocoa she made Monday after I told her I needed to be careful. She means the best and has been so supportive. I’m doing better about that and who knows..maybe I’m just eating better so she doesn’t need to say anything. Or, maybe our talk when I shared with her some of my struggles with weight gave her some insight.

Anyway, just so you know, she has not been overbearing at all with her comments. Please, don’t get the wrong picture. There is just this unwritten rule that anything a MIL says that goes contrary to what a DIL thinks seems to be taken as criticism. I’m learning to break that rule in my life. πŸ™‚

And one more confession… I’m SO GLAD I JOINED THIS CHALLENGE!!! Thanks, Steve! πŸ™‚

  1. Great job on the exercise and managing the PMS chocolate cravings. Those can be really difficult to handle, at least for me anyway.

    Also, great job on the McDonald's choice. You can make good choices at McDonald's – who knew??

    I'm so glad your MIL is being understanding and kind. She sounds like a nice lady. We have a houseguest right now. Just found out he will be staying until Saturday. (Thought he was leaving Friday am.) Okay – I can do it for four more days!!

    Thank you for doing the challenge. It has really been awesome to see the progress people, including you, are making! By the way, the next update is on Monday, but you have given one today, so that is sufficient. Just to be sure I don't get confused at the end, you probably want to just post a comment on Monday saying you are updating weekly.

    Again, great work!
