Body Gospel Week 3 in ONEDERLAND

At my weekly weigh in I dropped another 4.2 lbs, just 1 lb shy of my 50 lb goal!  I can see ONEDERLAND!  In fact, if you follow this blog on Facebook you would've seen that I hit this the very next day when I had blood work done.  What a difference 6 months makes!


Here's to my official weigh in Tuesday night being in ONEDERLAND!

This week I did Gospel Glory, Power & Praise, Core Revelations & Stretch in the Spirit, Strength & Spirit, and Body Revival & Core Revelations.  The Core and Stretch combo exerted the least energy (about the same as I do emptying the dishwasher).  This week was also different because my rest day was scheduled as Friday instead of Saturday.  Next week it's on a different day.

Monitoring my workouts this week:
  • Body Gospel & Core Revelations ended up being the longest workout, probably because of the pause switching from one video to the next.  Otherwise Strength & Spirit would be considered the longest.
  • Core Revelations & Stretch in the Spirit was the shortest workout.  This resulted in me burning the least calories that day as proven by the average and max heart rates being the lowest.
  • I burned the most calories doing Strength & Spirit.
  • My average and max heart rate were the highest during Gospel Glory.

Our team is having a Beat the Treats Challenge starting October 28 to scare off some pounds and be trim for turkey time.  If you're interested in this challenge there will be a webinar Wednesday night with all the details.  Register here for the webinar.

  1. Keep it up! I lose 15 pounds this year, and I feel great, however, I still have to take pills for my blood pressure, but is better than 2 years ago. I need to lose 6 more pounds, and I'll be in a healthy weight.

  2. You're one pound away, keep it up! We're all so excited for you. I am wondering though, how come the HDL went down? That's the good cholesterol, are you eating nuts?

    1. The tech didn't seem concerned that the HDL went down. I don't eat nuts very often.

  12. Wow your stats are amazing. I have lost about 30lbs in the last 5 months but I still have more to go. :-)

  13. I have so far to go until I make it to ONEDERLAND, that I sometimes wonder if I'll ever get there. I never made it to "Threederland", so I guess that is something that I can be grateful for. Keep up the good work!

    1. My highest recorded weight at the doctor's office was about 270 lbs (June 2012) so I was pretty darn close to "Threederland". You just have to try different things to see what helps you. Last year we had eaten less pasta and more potatoes and rice; that's what Benny attributed to the 20 lb loss I had between June and November. Start with something small like that and see where it leads. Add a new thing when you hit plateaus.

      Slow and steady wins the race to a healthier you!

  14. Very inspiring for anyone who is looking to get fit and trim. As you said, to remember when you are in the muck of the process, "What a difference 6 months makes." Congratulations on your continuing journey.

  16. If you ever figure out the "sleep thing", please share how you do it. I could definitely use some pointers. Meanwhile, good work on taking off the pounds and strengthening your body --- despite the "sleep thing"!
