Huh?!!

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

I'm so excited. I didn't want to weigh in today but did it anyway. It was a weekend of a lot of fatty food, and I haven't had a net gain in workouts. I usually see losses at the END of the week due to work-out schedule. So imagine my surprise to see lucky number 7 pop up! I'm 117.5--one-half pound away from my "your dreamin' sister" goal of 117!
Due to job-related stuff, I will have to miss Th and F workouts. But maybe I can make one up this weekend. I'm too close now to not achieve my goal within the next few days.

Valentines Weekend

Sunday, February 15, 2009

Ate lots of great mexican food this weekend, which will translate to lbs on the scale. Tonight we celebrate V Day (a day late) at a fave restaurant. More lbs there! But I'd rather spend my calories on good steak and seafood than chocolate (shocking but true). Have successfully stayed away from crap this weekend, due in large part to eating my healthy chocolate instead which takes away the cravings for junk. I did get in a weekend workout (to makeup for the one I will miss on Prez Day; no school tomorrow :( So no bonus there.
Good news though: I found out today that there's an instructor at the gym who teaches spinning and is pregnant. I need to meet her. Apparently the last time she was pregnant, she continued to spin almost the whole way thru her pregnancy.
I keep getting stronger and leaner and do not want to stop anytime soon. Maybe I won't have to.

  


Still shedding though more shredding will have to wait.

Well, the weight is still coming off. My scale weighs in 1/2 lb increments, and I don't really get excited unless I weigh in at a particular weight for 2-3 days. I was 118.5 for 3 days in a row, and today I weighed in at 118. Happy to have reached 120, I am now one pound away from what I considered to be a fairly unrealistic goal. So this is cool. I've lost 5.5 lbs in less than a month after getting back on SP. I'm eating well, I'm strong, and I've fought off this bad bug that most recently got ahold of my son, who's now dealing with a bad cough that seems to be getting worse instead of better after 1.5 weeks. :(
After only two work-out days this week though, I'm done. My son is out of school for the remaining two days and also next Monday for Prez Day. I cannot possibly go 5 days without a gym visit, so something will have to give with the schedules. But it's a sign of things to come, I'm afraid, as I've had to pick up not one but two part time jobs. Time will be at a premium, and I may have to decrease frequency and almost certainly duration of workouts :( We'll see....

  


Crazy week

Sunday, February 01, 2009

What an emotional roller coaster this week has been. It hasn't helped that we had a city-wide snow day Wed., exercise class on Thurs. too was cancelled, I missed Friday's gym time due to volunteering at school, and our family is sick making sleep a challenge. But shoveling snow, an added trip to the gym on Sat., and careful eating and tracking resulted in consistent weight loss down to 120. It's been the ONE thing I can control and therefore makes me feel better about life in general. And maybe it's just that I'm in better shape, this bug hit my husband much harder than me (or my son who has the metabolism of a hummingbird).
I've now achieved one goal of being only 3 lbs above target weight, certainly the leanest I've been since college. The only other time I was at this weight was when I crash-dieted before my wedding. But I gained a few lbs right back on the trip and was no where near this toned and in shape. I keep telling myself too that muscle weighs more than fat. So, really, this is a personal best.
I would love to be able to further tone up a couple of areas; I'm wearing my weight differently than when in college. I will try in the next few weeks, and if I can great. But I need to be realistic and happy with being strong and going into this pregnancy in better shape than my last. Goal now is to maintain strength and condition to make pregnancy and delivery as carefree as possible, and come right out of it into shedding lbs and toning again. I only gained 19 lbs with my first, so I don't fear the weight. But I do want it gone much sooner this time.

  


Whoa. Found out yesterday, we're preggers.

Guess I'll be trading my 6-pack for a 1-pack.
