I am so close to the next goal (and giftcard): 207.5 . 205 will be next.:)
I am really proud of the worout I put in tonight and the pretty good eating I did today. I have had a pinched nerve in my lower back for the last 2 days and yesterday I was only able to get my shopping done and a 20 minute yoga video (which was a nice stretch btw). But today I was able to do my This Is Taebo DVD and 100 weighted curls, and 100 booty lifts for lower abs. It was really hard, but I am so proud of my body and performance today. I have been really grateful for my body lately and all of the wonderful things it can do. Thank God:)
Finally had the equilibrium to workout and I am so GLAD. Weird how it really becomes part of you and you miss exercise when you can’t. I guess it’s like anything else. Tell me I can’t and I WANT IT! Anyway, now I am a sweaty mess, and so excited for a shower. Hoping to start Body Rock either today or tomorrow and see where that gets me:)
209 Pounds This Morning
I was so hoping for a good workout day today, but instead I woke up just as dizzy and discombobulated as I was last night. Head colds are the worst. I almost think being head sick is the absolute worst kind. Even with a stomach ache I can manage to get my house cleaned up and dinner made (not very fun, but it can be done). As a mom I have always prided myself on my ability to suck it up and get things done when I know I shouldn’t be able to, but with a head cold FORGET IT. I am the BIGGEST BABY. I wish for my Mommy and a hot bath, and meals made for me and to be pampered and taken care of.
On the bright side, I am still losing weight and I ate pretty well yesterday and was 209 this morning. I CAN’T WAIT to be out of the 200’s (and the obesity range). I am so excited! Once I am I’m going to treat myself to a new outfit and drag all of my girlfriends out Salsa dancing.:)
Until then, lots of green tea and TV. Boo…
I went to bed last night with a sore throat and woke up at 4 am with a full blown cold. I was hoping it was just allergies, but I guess that’s out now. What do I do? Should I work out anyway and just push myself, or should I take it easy? I really want to get rid of 13 more pounds a.s.a.p. (Then I will FINALLY be out of the 200’s AND out of the obesity range for my height! YAY!). Also, pants/shorts shopping is in my immediate future since I can’t walk 10 steps without tugging at my pants (oh and did I mention I only actually OWN one pair of pants? Now you now how much I hate shopping for this weird body shape). I am carrying all of my weight up top so my pants/shorts just slide off. Kinda funny, but mostly frustrating.
My towels fits all the way around me!!! Before it was about 10 inches open at the bottom and now it hangs straight! And it stays on! Oh happy day!
I AM SO EXCITED TO FINALLY HAVE A WORKING COMPUTER! Oh and I have lost a bit of weight too since I last posted. I am down to 209 (I kinda vascilate between 209 and 212, stupid plateaus). I have really been missing this outlet to talk about my weight loss. I know all the people around me are tired of hearing me talk about how much weight I’ve lost, workouts, sore muscles and clothes falling off. Although I totally ate like crap today (thanks Aunt Flow and low inhibitions). I have had a brilliant idea since I last wrote and that has been buying $10 giftcards for myself every time I lose 2.5 pounds. It has been really exciting to see the progress!
In other news, my kids are great at Taebo these days and think they know “karate”. I have my 11 year old sister working out with me and I LOVE Just Dance 3. Such a great workout! I am finding working out is not my hardest battle. I can push the play button and get through it with a smile. But what I suck at (at least for now) is my eating habits. I LOVE coffee (i.e. mochas with all the whip cream and toppings you can throw on it), rich food, and not eating my vegetables. Also, finding that nightshade veggies (yum), dairy products (yum) and sugar (triple yum) make me feel like CRAP. Stupid thyroid.
Speaking of thyroid, I have to go and get it checked out again soon and I have been putting it off for as long as I can. Scares me to death. Guess I need to woman up or something…:(
P.S. Have you ever found yourself talking to the workout instructor on your T.V.? I would just like to say that it really helps:)
