New milestone...

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

well kids,

i finally hopped onto the eliptical trainer at the gym and lasted 20 whole minutes!!

i am so excited it isn't even funny. i was sweating and my heart rate was up like it used to do on the treadmill and it felt so good!!!

and i burned 406 calories on top of all that! wahoo!!

yup, then i did 45 minutes on the treadmill and some of my weight training exercises.

i guess the eliptical is my new BEGINNING when i go to the gym now.

now, i need to add more resistance to it AND last a lot longer too. imagine how many calories i could burn if i did the eliptical for a whole hour!

oh what fun!! i do believe i have just rejuvinated my gym life. hopefully it will spark my scale into a downward trend ..... i believe, i believe, i believe!!!

Not sure why?

Sunday, July 11, 2010

ok, so i am eating right, exercising 6 out of 7 days of the week and progress is sooo slow.

not sure why.

i think the actualy body is changing and building muscle and losing the fat. i say this because clothes that just fit are now getting lose on me. so i guess that is some kind of progress, although NOT ON THE SCALE where i'd love to see it.

i'm getting better at using the curling iron and flat iron -- no laughing, ok, you can laugh -- it is funny. so i'm cool with the new hair thing and everyone -- customers, family, employees, friends --- all love the new me! both hair and weight loss. i think the compliments are going to my head... :-)

i won $100 on a scrath ticket the other day - and another $25 today, and all i did was cash in a few $2 winners of $4. pretty cool huh?

my hubby is the best. he went to the fruit stand the other day and got us all stocked up on fruit for the week. he washed the grapes and blueberries, cut up my watermelon and cantelope and put it all away before i got home from work. isn't he sweet?

ok, time to hit the road. gotta try to get motivated to go to work tomorrow. not easy. this is the time of year i really really really dream of retirement.

thanks for stopping by, wishing you all the best in your lifelong journey.

    I wish I had someone to cut up my canteloupes and watermelons! Wowser! Of course, once it is done it just makes it so much easier to work on being healthy, so I do it!

Lucky Day!

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

to start off with, i am down 3 lbs. 257 and on my way to my goal for august 7th of 245.

bought a 2 dollar scratch ticket and VOILA! 100 BUCKS!! that was sweet!

bought a new set of gym clothes, lighter than the sweats i was wearing, they were wayyyyy wayyyyy toooooo hot!

changed up my treadmill routine, first 30 minutes at a 14 incline and second 30 minutes i go for a fast pace instead of incline. it definitely amps things up a tad.

hubby put air conditioner in last night... oh what a relief it is in this near 100 degree weather we have been having here.

work is crazy busy. non stop. time to schedule more people to work. thank goodness for days off!! lol. i supposed i should be happy it is busy, my sales were up 23% last week. hot diggidy dog, that is amazing!

heading to gym in about an hour. gotta go in bedroom and cool off for a bit first, no central air conditioning here... just in the bedroom.

hopy y'all are doing well.
