Wednesday Wow Factor!


Week 98
Start date: 12/28/11
Initial weight: 220
Current weight: 196 (19 pounds lost since starting Plexus on 8/26/13)
Total weight loss: 24 pounds


Last week's dream focus: Keep my eyes on my blessings and on my dreams – using them as my fuel to make them come to life; fight Satan’s attempts to lead me back to a place of victim mentality and depression; HUSTLE my buns off; ignore the Devil's lies and deceit and shut him up when he starts in on me; keep sharing my story with others; and continue inspiring myself and others!!!


What went well: I didn’t feel like going to Zumba last night but with some encouragement from the boy, I went anyway.  And, of course, it didn’t disappoint!  It was just what I needed to get me out of my funk!  I danced off stress, burned calories, and felt accomplished.

Today my friend, Abby, and I were in the break room at work when we saw someone putting pints of ice cream in the freezer.  We jokingly asked what that was all about and discovered they were left overs and available to anyone.  The second I learned it was there, I wanted it.  We heated up our food, grabbed some salad left over from the same meeting, and went back to our desks. 

I asked Abby a couple of times if she was going to get some, secretly hoping she’d say yes.  Indecisive, I finally went back to the break room and washed my dishes.  I came back to my desk, WITHOUT the ice cream!  AND neither of us ended up getting any!  We both decided we didn’t need it and we remained accountable to each other rather than talking each other into doing things that would delay our dreams.  Now that’s teamwork!!!


Challenges:  As the QA lead of our current software release at work, I’ve had a lot of additional responsibilities on my plate.  With it come extra hours devoted to work and less free time.  This has affected my blogging, my sleep, my stress, and the amount of time I’m able to work on my dreams.  I’ve felt exhausted and drained, but I'm not overwhelmed!  I know it will soon come to an end so I'm focused on the good and hanging in there each day!


This week's dream focus: Don't let current responsibilities get me down or overwhelm me;  get enough rest and focus on what I can do... and leave the rest; fight Satan’s attempts to lead me back to a place of victim mentality and depression; HUSTLE my buns off; ignore the Devil's lies and deceit and shut him up when he starts in on me; keep sharing my story with others; and continue inspiring myself and others!!!
