Weekly Weigh In

Weighed in today at 221.6 lbs on my home scale.  This will be my starting weight from here on out. 

I have made the decision to not continue going to WW.  With all the changes in our house right now I could really save the money for something else.  Plus I wasn't going to the meetings and using the tools like I should've been so why pay someone $45/mo to step on their scale? 

I can do it at home, I've done it before.  Lyndsey and I have promised to hold each other accountable.  I ask that you please do that too!  I'm contemplating doing it like I did 4+ years ago.  Each time I would weigh in I'd pay $2 and then once I met a goal I got the money.  Then maybe if I gain I could add a $1?!

So here we go!  Wish me luck!!

Nice walk!

The sun was out again today and I needed to go to the bank.  Good thing it was a cardio day!  I decided to walk down to the bank.

Ryan was loaded in the stroller and off we went.  He did a great job on our way there.  I did a walk and jog combo and was comfortable with my pace.  Most of the way there was downhill which probably helped.

We went to the bank, walked to the post office and then stopped at a new place for lunch.  I tried to make the best decision and went with a wrap and half order of fries which I was supposed to share with Ryan but he hasn't been into fries lately.  Sure wish I had that self control!!!

We then loaded back up and headed home...uphill!  It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.  it was definitely a slower pace than the way there but we also had a lot of stopping and going.  Ryan got restless and wanted out.  He then had a full on melt down about a half mile from the house.  He wanted out to run but we were along a very busy street and Mommy said no.

We made it back and it felt good!  By the end of the day I had over 15k steps.  I see myself walking more places this Spring/Summer/Fall!

Luck O' the Zumba: The Sequel

Ryan approved of the green hairspray
There was a prize for best dressed so I made my shirt and skirt for the event.  I also made my mom's tutu.
I haven't done Zumba in a LONG time so I was a little nervous.  The two hours went by quick and the only problem I had was with my stupid skirt creeping up.  Otherwise, it was a good time!!

After the event we went to a local pub to have some grub and green beers.

Weekly weigh in

Yesterday was BEAUTIFUL!  We've had 3 consecutive days of sunshine and it's felt great!!  So to take advantage of the sun, I decided to walk to WW to weigh in.  Ryan sat in the stroller the whole way there which was nice.  I was down .2 lbs.  I was hoping for more but I'll take it!

We stopped at the grocery store to have some lunch then headed back.  Ryan wanted out to walk and run too.  It made for a stop and go trip but it was cute to see him run.

Fresh air!

It feels like we've been cooped up for WAY too long!!!  Today was semi nice outside.  It started out with sunshine and then that slowly went away.  After dropping the kids off at school and weighing in Ryan and I decided to do my workout outside today since it's a cardio day. 

I started off with a 1.5 mile walk around the park which was 16 min.  My map.my.run app only recorded a mile though.  Grrr!  I'm sure it's my phone's fault, it is a piece of junk and I can't wait to get a new one...I digress.  Ryan sat in the stroller the whole time and was just glad to be outside.  It got a little tough because the wind picked up and the stroller acted like a sail!

He wanted to play at the park so we stopped to let him.  While he played I did some of my HIIT workouts, 1 min on and 1 min rest.  I did jumping jacks, irish jig, step ups on the cement curb and then step ups onto the bench, alternating legs.  I'm sure the people at the park or living around it got a good laugh.  Ryan took pictures of me for proof.  I hate my stomach in them but I'm keeping it real!

After a bit we headed home because it looked like it was going to start raining.  It felt good to get out and get some fresh air though.

Weekly weigh in and 60 day check in!

Today's weigh in did not go as I had hoped for.  I weighed myself this morning and knew it wouldn't be good.  Shark week is on it's way and I can feel it.  I was UP 2.2 lbs.  :/  Was really hoping to hit my 20 lbs again but not this week.

Today is also the 60 day mark of the BBM Challenge.  I can't believe it's been 60 days!  Here are my measurements:

Chest  43.5" (-1.5")
Waist  43.5" (-3.5")
Hips  50.5"  (-1.5")
R Thigh  19.5"(-3.5")
R Upper Arm 13" (-")
Total inches lost = 11" 

Weight: 222.2 (WW)
Total weight loss: 3.4 lbs

Killer workout

Have I told you how much I love this challenge?  I am not a fan of the workout this week.  It is tough!!!  I pushed myself harder today and killed it!  I was hot, sweaty and red afterwards!  

I plan on doing it again after this one ends.  Who's with me?  

My accountability group that I started has fizzled some and it bums me out.  I realize people are busy, get sick and get burnt out but I need the accountability!  If I can do it, so should they!  (Right?)  There is one gal who is more consistent with the workouts with the others but other than that, I am the only one that has done it everyday (with the exception of one day).  We're down to about 4 out of 15 of us that are "sticking with it".

"I've fallen and can't get up!"
Like I mentioned above, I have stuck to the schedule and completed everyone.  Up until this weekend.  I didn't get in my cardio day on Sat, was doing to do it Sun and then ended up not doing it.  I still feel horrible but I think my body was telling me that it needed the break.  I am extremely proud of myself.  This is the longest that I've stuck with a plan, especially 6 days a week!!!  I can feel and see the results and I love it.

Smaller jeans

I wore my size 16 jeans today...all day!  I tried them on this morning, like I have many times in the past few months.  I expected them to be slightly uncomfortable like usual.  However, when I put them on they weren't!  It was a nice feeling!
