Game On! Diet: Week 3 Begins

Monday was the beginning of Week 3 of the Game On! Diet that I am participating in with some fellow bloggers. Week 2 was not a good week for me, but I am moving forward to Week 3. Foodwise, I did ok. However, I lost points for not doing my new, healthy habit like I should be doing (journaling) and I did miss exercising a couple of days. I don’t want to drag down the Twinkies scores like I did last week, so I am recommitting to getting the best score possible. Monday I ate all of my healthy mini-meals, drank more water than is required, went to the gym to work out after work, and did my journaling.

What have I learned from doing this competition? Well, I have learned that I can drink water instead of so many diet sodas and still survive. Actually, it has done wonders for my skin! I also have learned that I can’t do the same exercise routine every day. I have to mix it up or I will get bored very easily. Hip Hop Abs is a great workout, as well as Wii tennis. My muscles are aching! Also, I think I will get a kick board for the pool at the gym. (It’s been in the 100’s this week in Dallas.) Also, it is not only about pounds lost. My scale says my weight is the same, but my clothes say that it is shifting around for the better.

There is now a Game On! Diet website that is up and running.

I don’t Tweet as much as some of the others, but you can follow our game with #gameondiet!

Those darn Ding-Dongs are in the lead right now, followed by us Twinkies, and then the Ho-hos . . .

Game On!

    I meant to say “Thanks, fellow Gamer!” and “Congrats on your award!”

    You’re doing great. I think this is NOT easy … I’ve been struggling a bit and I didn’t lose any weight this week — but my pants are much looser! As a fellow Twinkie, I want to offer my support and tell you “Do the best you can. That is all we can ask.” : )

    Jenners,

    Thanks for the encouragement and support! I am glad to hear that your body is changing, too! I think for some of us, it just takes time, maybe a bit longer than others, for the numbers to change, even though a difference is being made.

    Have a great week!
