    Getting Started, Weight Loss

    Fitness and Weight Loss Challenge for Moms

    I'm still plugging away at the challenge and am finding that it is indeed turning into a lifestyle.

    I don't want to miss my exercises anymore.

    I don't want to mindlessly pig at the cupboard anymore.

    I want to eat healthy and drink more water.

    And there is still more to learn. And to do.

    All in all, I am thrilled to have hopped on board with the other Fit Yummy Mummy Challengers.

    Not only are there really cool prizes (everyone wins something – including better health and weight loss),  but I feel better. And I look better already too.

    I didn't get a picture this week, am barely getting a chance to get my stats posted, one of those weeks!

    But even on a hectic week, I've managed it, because it really isn't that hard once you get to it.

    If you would like to turn things around – get your body and your health back – be a good role model for your kids – you have until the end of today (Friday Feb 29.08) to get on the Fit Yummy Mummy Transformation Challenge.

    I really wasn't planning on being bikini ready by spring, but I am thinking that I might just get there!

    I actually bought a bathing suit last week that I need to lose a little bit to make it look better, but before the challenge I wouldn't have even looked at it – for me. I would have looked at it wishing I could buy it.

    I will post more on that later!

    For now, here are my stats. I measured Tuesday, as usual.


    * Height approx 5 3.5 

    * Weight 130 lbs (down 1) - 

    * Waist 74cm (holding) – down a total of 4 cm so far – works for me!

    * Belly Bulge 86 cm (down 1) – this is the one I'm really concerned with – seeing slow but steady improvement. YIPPEE! Down a total of 7cm!

    * Hips 93 cm (same) Same thoughts as last week. This number is likely not going to fluctuate much because it isn't a problem area for me.

    * Thighs 53.5 – Seems to be holding. I'd like to see them go down a bit, but they may hold as I switch fat for muscle. I've always had muscular legs.


    * Height approx 5 3.5 

    * Weight 131 lbs (up.5) – I am definitely toning and adding muscle so I am not too concerned. I wasn't expecting much in weight loss this week (see below)

    * Waist 74cm (down 1cm)

    * Belly Bulge 87 cm (down 3) Yippee!!

    * Hips 93 cm (same) I don't have a lot to lose here, so it may not go down. Again, toning is what I am interested in here. I may even see the number go higher if I add a lot of muscle to the back end :0))

    * Thighs 52.75 (53.5) I am having some problems with my thigh measurements, being sure to measure always in the same place. I'm not terribly concerned about it. As long as I'm toning, I'm happy. It could be that I measured in the wrong place last week because this is my starting thigh measurement.


    • Stayed at a Holiday Inn for a surprise party my daughter's friends planned. I was chaperon. Used the workout room twice – once in the evening and once in the morning. A first for me! And got a few hours of swimming in too – highly recommend it if you can access a pool.
    • Graduated to the beginners exercises from the introductory.  Continue to challenge myself on the intervals – getting stronger every week.
    • Stayed pretty much on track all week. Looking forward to adding more components that will help me to get even better results now that I have got the first round of basics established.
    • No beer!
    • Felt really good at the hotel where we stayed. I didn't feel frumpy at all. In fact, I am already looking noticeably enough better that I even felt not so shabby in my new workout pants Kiss. I felt like a Fit Yummy Mummy!


    • The birthday party and stay at the motel was great, but I did overindulge in chocolate and some candy etc. But it was a controlled splurge – I knew what I was doing and thought that it was a fair trade since it is a rare occurrence.
    • Didn't eat as much salad or raw veggies. I love it, need to get back to it.
    • I don't really have much to report on misses this week. It went quite well!

    All in all, I had a good week. My stats aren't off the wall but I feel so much better and I know that as I continue, I have no where to go but to where I want to be.

    It is happening. 

    This is the last day to jump on the challenge.

    The program will always be available, but there is something incredibly empowering about joining a group of women with the same goal in mind, and to be accountable.

    If you want to get it together, and feel better than you have in so long you probably can't remember, get in there with us today.


    (the community is the most supportive I have ever seen. The members are fun, and we are all in the same boat. And there is an incredible amount of information and Holly is everywhere helping us out.)

    An observation – something that occurred to me yesterday as I was looking at the new challenger's pictures. We all post one. It isn't so bad. The good thing is that I noticed that there isn't one woman in the challenge that "hasn't got the goods". No matter what the size, the shape, the look.

    Not one that I don't see great things happening for if she simply follows the Fit Yummy Mummy program.

    It doesn't matter where you are now. It just matters where you are going. 

    FYM was created by a mom, for us moms. It works with us, not against us. 

    It really isn't that hard.

    You just need start where you are. 

    Get on board the Fit Yummy Mummy Transformation Challenge .

    Make It Your Day, Jan Ferrante

    It is definitely the time of year to be getting back on board with a Fit Yummy Mummy 12 Week Challenge – I am counting down the days to being 10lbs lighter and 12 weeks stronger!

    Holly gives us assignments throughout the challenge, today it is to examine perfection and the effect that it has on our results – and how it can more likely than not cause more trouble than it saves. I am looking at that today.

    How about you. Has perfection ever brought you down in your efforts to lose weight or get healthier?
