On my walk this morning I saw a 70ish year old woman rockin’ a zebra print fedora on her morning walk. Well done, lady, well done.
Saturday’s weigh in was great! I lost 2.2lbs and then promptly had my 1st truly “free day” since Easter. I had several celebrations to attend and I just wanted to have a nice time and not be concerned with my intake/output. No tracking, no workout. Blech. So not worth it. I felt absolutely yucky. Sunday I got right back to work because I want THIS more than anything else.
In other news, I have been diligently paying myself $5 for each pound I have lost. Stashing $5 bills like a squirrel stashes nuts. The money is to help fund my goal weight vacation with my sisters. Girls only. No husbands, no kids. FUN!
On the NSV front, last night I wasnt able to get my walk in outside before dark so I decided to try an onboard workout on my treadmill. I chose the 20 minute 200 calorie workout. Before I started, I told myself I was going to do my best not to adjust the speed and run when it got too fast. Turns out only 4 minutes of the program was a walking pace for me SO I RAN. For 16 minutes! Wahoo me. :)
Finally, I just broke down and bought myself a Fitbit Flex and so far I LOVE IT. It’s fun. Now to save up for the matching Aria Scale…
Have a great week everyone!
She was telling me how sore she was after day two of 30 Day Shred.
“Everything except my toes and hair are sore.”
I changed my weigh in day to Saturday. It’s just easier to have my weigh in day coincide with my sister’s since we have partnered up for almost all of our exercise. She is a better record keeper and makes sure we are achieving our weekly walking mileage goals. Besides, everything is better with a partner, right?
Saturday weigh in: -3.0 lbs. My weight tracker chastised me for losing too quickly. I told her to shut her whore mouth and then I assured her it will all even out. 3 lbs in a week is an unusually large loss for me.
I started 30 Day Shred yesterday. I’m pretty convinced Jillian is trying to kill me. I don’t know what I expected but seriously, holy crap.
Starting weight: 189 lbs
Current weight: 167 lbs
TOTAL LOSS: 22 lbs
Ultimate goal weight: 118 lbs
Well, I did it. I took my first group fitness class. Ever. In my whole entire life. Core pilates. It felt good. It was hard. But not hard in a never-gonna-do-that-again sort of way. Hard as in pushing myself past my comfort zone and enjoying the process kind of thing. Who is this girl?
Snow peas, sugar snap peas, pumpkins, strawberries, 5 varieties of squash, green onions, basil, oregano, cilantro, thyme, chives, dill and corn all in the ground. Still need to plant tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and green beans but I’ve run out of daylight.
Oh! And don’t forget the kohlrabi and kale! YUM!
Guess who has officially lost 10% of her starting weight? Guess! Guess! GUESS! You’ll never guess. It’s me. MEEEEEEEE! *happy dance* Also, I finally broke into the 160s… wahoooooo!
I am so ridiculously close to the 20lbs lost mark. Eeeeeeeee! So exciting.
On the 5 mile loop that I walk most often there is a substantial hill, yesterday was the first day that it didn’t leave me huffing and puffing. It’s getting easier!
Weigh-in Wednesday: -3 pounds. Thank goodness since last week I maintained.
You guys! I did it! So far I have walked 30.4 miles this week. Plus I have an evening walk scheduled with my sisters tonight. Love meeting and exceeding goals! *happy sigh*
My walking goal for the week is 30 miles. I have until Wednesday to get there. I am at 21.7 miles currently. I absolutely love walking (or rather being walked) by my little sisters. We are making “remember when we” memories that I will treasure always.
