Yes, I Ate Wendy’s

Hi all,

Decided to rest today. So, no exercise to brag about. Was late getting off work and a bit sleepy all day for some reason. I know I will be hitting the total gym tomorrow. So, no biggie.

I forgot to share something I saw on my walk yesterday. It’s a little blurry due to the crummy tablet camera but I love spring.

Pink Roses

So, now back to the Wendy’s. Yep, my guy decided he wanted to get some of their food and offered to get me lunch. I stuck mostly healthy and ordered the Jalapeno Popper salad and a cheesy baked potato. So filling, but guess what. Those two were about 1100 calories. But it’s been almost 7 hours and I’m not hungry. I had a cookie( later) as well and likely will eat something else to get me to about 1400 calories for the day.

That puts me still losing at least 2lbs a week.

So, yes, you can eat fast food (in portions) and still lose weight. You can even eat it in larger portions if you burn enough calories to stay at your deficit. For most people, with a medium to high functioning metabolism, all you need to lose weight is a deficit of calories through either less taken in or more burned.


Enough check in for me today.

Keep it going,


Might Need to be Slapped if I Keep Stepping on the Scale.

Hi all!

So, I saw team mates had lost more and I was the only member under 1% loss. Remember, this challenge started Friday. I was like no! I can’t be that far behind and grabbed that scale. Long story short, I’m down more. 326.4lbs as of 5/25/2021. That puts me over 1% since Saturday.

I will do my best not to weigh in again until at least Thursday.

No promises lol

Anywho, I was inspired to go on another short walk. My rubbing thighs are protesting, but I am definitely getting in slightly better shape than a week ago. I even took a short video of me walking.

As you could hear in the video, just walking still has me a bit short on breath. I am steady doing just over half a mile with only one brief break to let my heart slow down a bit. I try to keep it under 170 when I can. My break is usually just until the heart rate goes back down to 125 or so, generally less than 2 minutes and my heart rate monitor is paused while sitting. I am slow. Even when I was in decent shape for me ( exercising daily after working 8 hours on my feet, generally easily covering 2 miles or more after work or pretty intense aerobics) 3mph was still basically a jog.

So, today was another great step in this journey!

Keep it going,


The Monday Check In

Woo, Hi all!

So, decided to weigh in every couple days at the beginning of this 3 month challenge. It will help keep me accountable and motivate the group. So I surprised myself and was 2.8 lbs down. So weighed in at 227.2lbs this morning. I will start remembering to photograph those again. Promise.

Anywho, went for a walk. Did better than last time so I am improving. Woop!Woop!

I got the chicks moved out this morning as well. So far so good on all of that.

I figured I’d share my week check in pictures. This will show my diet and exercises logged.

Today I will try to be back up to the 1400-1600 range to cycle a bit more. We shall see. Anyway, things still to do be before work starts.

Keep it going,



Hi all,

Just popping in to share a bit.

I spent most of the morning planting seeds. Can’t wait to see more plants popping up. So far I have a few cucumber, tomatoes, pumpkins, and peppers sprouted. Many will need transplanting next weekend. I still have tons still to plant.

As for my established fruits, my everbearing strawberries are producing well. Here’s 3 I picked today. They were good 🙂

Strawberries picked 5/23/2021

The two chicks testing out the run are doing well. Hopefully the rest can join them tomorrow.

Doing well under calories today. Will be doing my next batch of exercise tomorrow.

Till then,

Keep it going.


The Challenge Weigh In

The 3 month challenge began yesterday. I decided to do my weigh in for it this morn, since Saturday will be my normal weigh in day anyway. We also needed to do a before picture. You got the front/side pictures already but you can get another of me.

Kimmie 5/22/2021

I decided to take the pictures/ video on the porch for better lighting. The weight came in at 330lbs ( verified by healthy wage). So down over 3lbs in a week! If I can do that every week for the next 12 weeks I should get around 12% loss. Here’s hoping.

We got the wire put on the chicken run, therefore chicks can go out soon. I also will be doing some more seed planting today. I will be hitting TG at some point in the next few hours as well.

It’s lovely outside today. I hope it is where you are too! Go enjoy some spring before summer is here.

Keep it going
