Weighing In

Today was weigh-in day.  This week I lost 2.8 pounds, and I'm down to 234.2.  That's a total of 34 pounds, so I finally feel like I'm making a dent in things.

Yesterday I did my Turbo Jam dvd.  It totally kicks my butt and I love it.  I did have one problem, though.  As I was jumping around my kitchen, my workout pants kept sliding down.  They don't have a draw string so I just kept pulling them back up over my fanny!  Luckily the blinds were drawn, so no one saw the plumbers convention going on.  :)

 I'm enjoying all the variety on Weight Watchers, and have been staying within my daily points allowance.  Hope everyone has a great weekend.  Don't forget to exercise, so your pants can fall off too!

Working up a sweat.

Yesterday I finally dragged myself to the gym.  I did not want to be there, but it had been two weeks since I exercised, and I was starting to feel it.  Now that things have started to settle down I knew that I had to get back at it.    I was feeling so lazy, that I even took the elevator up to the third floor where the elliptical machines are.  REALLY.

Well, I dragged most of the workout, but I have to say I felt amazing afterward.  I was thrilled that I had finally gotten off my butt and gotten back at it.  Okay I haven't exactly been sitting around on my butt, but it felt great to just take some time to take care of myself.

I guess what I'm saying is, if it has been a while since you've worked up a sweat, just do it.  You will feel better afterward.  Sometimes I think that mental hurdle is much harder than the actual physical one.  So get out there and get moving.  Your body will say thank you!

Weekend Weigh In

This weekend has been a blur, so I'll make it quick.

I weighed in this Friday at 237.0

I was happy with the progress, and grateful that Weight Watchers seems to be working.  That makes my total weight loss since Febuary at 31 pounds, so I need to post a progress picture.  Hopefully that will be my next post.  Gotta go put the baby down.  :)

Coming up for air

Today I thought I would come up for a quick breath of air.  Life has been insanely crazy... as May always is for us.  Last week two of my kids had birthdays.  We had two friend parties, one family party, and hosted a Mother's Day gathering.   I finished a quilt that I was making for a brother-in-law who is fighting cancer, and have been helping with ticket sales, cast dinners, and rehearsal for my Freshmen son who is in his school musical.  Tonight is opening night, and we are all excited.  He is one of the leads, and is at home on the stage.  He has the voice I always wanted.  :)  Last night was the dress rehearsal for the families to come and support the kids.  The show went amazingly smooth, and the cast is very talented.  My son had his first "stage kiss"  (kiss of any kind... I think)  and that was a little crazy to watch!  Yikes!

On the weight loss front, last week was a tough one with all of the parties.  I have rebounded nicely this week, and I am looking forward to my weigh in tomorrow.  I have really enjoyed the flexibility that Weight Watchers has given me.  It's great not to worry if I'm eating too much or not enough.  I just have to hit my points target.  Some days I fall a little short of getting all my points, but I guess that's better than eating too many.

I'll check back in tomorrow.  Everyone have a healthy, happy day!

Lock the Werewolf away!

Okay people, it's that time of the month and I feel like I've turned into a werewolf.  I think my family would agree.  I am just waiting to bite everyones  heads off who talk to me.  I am moody, emotional and ravishingly hungry!  

The full moon has definitely come out, and I am on the prowl.  Would someone please lock me up until this is over??  I'm eating everything in sight, and being a total grump.  I need a plan for next month, so this doesn't happen again.

Two of my kids have birthdays this week, so things are extra stressful as well.  Throw in a dance recital, hockey and lacrosse practice's and dress rehearsals for the Jr. High Musical, and it's a crazy week.  May is the craziest month of the year when you have kids.  So, I'm hoping to transform back into a human before my family throws me out of the house.  Hopefully, the scale will still be my friend, too.
