Workout day

Monday, August 15, 2011

I woke up this morning feeling weak again this allergy thing is annoying me.

So I still plan on going and shopping and working out...

Boy it is harder to get rocking after 2 rough eating days.

I know the scale would testify for me but I am not weighing in

for a day or so to have time to get some work outs in

and eat healthier.

Day 322 of my NEW PLAN and all is going great? Yes .

Spark People loss total pounds- 40.8 as of 8/6/11

Short Term goals :
Weight:
269 (again... 1.5 to go baby!) __ reward = New pair of carpenter jeans(like the ones in my background on my page that are way to big now)

These are my new pants I plan on owning very soon!

    Yea sneezing and runny nose discouraged me but my tore muscle from last week between my shoulder I could hear Mac and Sherry saying to take it easy and heal up.. So I did not work out today. i am sure it will help me. I did get some shopping and some walking in but no where near my goals.

    emoticon emoticon You are rocking it. Your new pants remind me to give myself a goal. I am scared to buy anymore clothes as the clothes that were tight are now loose and pretty soon i will have no choice.

Your doing great. Keep it up. Love to hear about your journey there. PS Love your background pic. Your children are beautiful. God Bless!

    Allergies. bummer. Take ya some OTC allergy meds & you'll be back to feeling like your ol' self in no time. Allergies aren't contagious so I wouldn't worry about passing any germs around. As long as you're not running a fever, you shouldn't be contagious. However..if it turns into a sinus infection, you might run a low grade fever. Still...nothing contagious. If you catch it with some meds before it gets too far out of control, it shouldn't turn into an infection.

get to feelin' better dude. That's an order! LOL.

  As long as you don't have a sore throat it can be allergies. Take some allergy medication. If the symptoms go away, then it probably was just allergies. Try to stay away from getting too close to any kids, just in case.
