Hey Kathy ....I have tamed the ETD !!!

Saturday, April 04, 2009

Hey you guys I have finally tamed the ETD (Elliptical Torture Devise) I mastered 65 minutes on the thing. When I got off I had so many different feelings. I wanted to cry, throw up, and even lay down and go to sleep.

This is a big step for me considering I have broken sooo many bones that I'm surprise I can get out of bed in the morning.

Weigh in is Tuesday and I can't have my team falling below the yellow line. (biggest looser humor sorry)

Now some even better news my sister did 73 minutes on that Monster and I am so proud of her. She better watch out I'm going to blow by her and she's not going to know what hit her LOL LOL.

Spark On......

Ok If everyone wakes up in the morning and there is snow on the ground its because of me.

I managed to do 35 yes that's right 35 minutes on the elliptical. I wasn't whinging and I hardly did any grumbling and NO cursing this time. About 15 minutes into the work out my ankle started to hurt but I kept on trucking. I would look up at the TV's that were on and concentrated on them.

After the elliptical I finished up my circuit well at least I tried. I had 2 more machines to do. There were these 2 BOYs standing there and I asked them if they were finished with the machine but they just ignored me, then they turned to one another and started talking in their native language. So I just said Oh forget it, I just did 35 minutes on that monster of a machine.

Well next time I will see if I can do longer. Tomorrow is weigh in. Wish me luck.

Oh little sister Dottie you better watch out big sister Melissa is going to kick butt..

Spark on Sister!

Weigh in day ! !

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

Hello everyone its been a while since I wrote.

Today was weigh in day and I am down 2 more lbs. But the funny thing about today is I tried the ELLIPTICAL again, see my sister can now do an entire hour on it and I can't have her showing me up HA HA. So I attempted it again, now there was some Whining and grumbling, and even a little cursing going on but I did manage to do 10 minutes. Yes that is correct 10 minutes.

I think all this sibling rivalry is fun. I'm older then my sister so I have to show her the oldie but goodie can still do what she can do, and do it better ha ha ha

I love my sister and I don't know where I would be if I did not have her here with me on this journey.

Little sister you ROCK keep up the good work, and remember the oldie but goodie is not far behind.

Spark on Sister ! !

Come on Mexico

    Congrats on doing 10 minutes on the Elliptical. emoticon That is my favorite piece of equipment to work out on. Like your sister I can sometimes do an hour, but usually it's 30-40 minutes. emoticon Keep up the good work. Older sisters rock.

    You're killing me! You know I'm emotional today LOL

Thanks for jumping back on the elliptical that last 5 minutes. I was way full of quit by then. You officially lost two gallons Lissa! That is amazing. I am so proud of you! With all of your aches and pains I don't even know if I'd get out of bed in the morning - you're tough as nails lady and I admire you - more than you know! I'm always looking up to you babe.


Especially now that your guns are back

My sister Rocks! ! !

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

My sister did an entire hour on the elliptical, I am sooo proud of her, now for me I did a total of 1 minute 30 seconds HAHA HA HA. It just seems to hurt my ankle that I screwed up many years ago. So I figured I will get it stronger then try it again.

Now for me I finally ate enough calories, but then it stated I was doing more exercises and had to increase my calories WTF ! ! ! I can barely make 1200 calories a day and now they want me to eat more.

Well I took a 45 minute walk with the puppies, went to the gym did 35 minutes on the bike and don't forget my minute and thirty seconds on the elliptical HA HA. Did my circuit training and cranked up my weights.

well tomorrow is another day at the gym I will do my normal routine and add something somewhere.

See ya all later

I can't thank you enough for the support along the way! Peas and carrots you and me big sister. It seems that when one of us hits a rough patch the other one gives a great push in the right direction. I'm so glad we're on this journey together. I think I'm having as much fun loosing this weight with you as I did gaining it lol! The kids better look out this is our week!

    It's you and me, Meliss, in the Battle of the Elliptical! I say every second counts and between us, we'll conquer that sucker! In the meantime, Dot, it's up to you!

Great to see you at dinner last night! It seems like forever. I guess our schedules just aren't meshing right now. We'll have to get together soon.

Love you.

Very Very Busy Day

Monday, March 16, 2009

The alarm went off at the normal time 6am. helped my buddy get ready for work like we do normally mon-fri. After that I decided to go lay down for a little bit. My sister wanted to walk the dogs in the morning but since I knew I was going to have a very long busy day I opted to snooze a bit more.

So off I went up the PA Turnpike to one of my Three (yes three) offices I work out of. It was a normal day there, someone volunteered to make lunch as they always do. It was delicious it was bow tie pasta with spinach and alfredo sauce. My co-workers laughed at me because I asked "Hey do we have a measuring cup" So I was afraid that I would go over my calories, so I did not eat much ( only 3/4 of a cup) and a bunch of water.

Then it was off to the second office ( yes two offices in one day) there I had to meet with a staff person and some co-workers.

Then it was out to dinner with my boss, when there I was concerned about ordering a healthy meal. So I went for the salad - I know I can never go wrong there.

Then it was off to yet another meeting, after the meeting I called my sister to see if she was still game for going to the gym. So now we are talking about it being after 8pm.

Got home and changed into my swim suit and went and soaked in the hot tub then did some laps in the pool, It was very relaxing and well deserved after a long busy day.

I still continue to have trouble getting all of my calories in. I am eating a lot of vegetables/salads and chicken.

Well tomorrow is an easier day at work I will be able to get to the gym at a decent time, do my cardio and my circuit.

Tuesday in weigh in

Wish me luck
