i made my bed, i'm gonna sleep in it. but im gonna get myself some clean new sheets..

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

thats right. weighed in at 220 today. kinda funny actually. i looked at it and was like 222..great. then im like, wait?? 220? then i had to ask myself again what the number was. after that, i screamed loud enough for walt to investigate, and ran for the camera. naked. i am sure the neighbors got a great view.

seeing that number this morning made me get through my workout for the day because i was sore from yesterday.
but i:
*did an ab workout. (crunches, reverse crunches, crunches with twist, and that banana thing)
*30 wall pushups.
*120 minutes with ms. leslie (three fast miles, walk and tone, family walk, one mile walk, one mile booster)
*3 different workouts from exercise tv (tai chi, yoga and ms. leslie's kid walk)
*one mile jog
i ended up at 210 minutes for the day and i am sore.

i cannot imagine what the dogs were thinking watching me attempt yoga. holy guacamole is that difficult. i look forward to the day when it isnt that difficult. it doesnt look tough when walt does the downward dog. but it is. i know he was thinking, "is she standing on her head? what is she doing? mom? mom, ill show you how to do it."
duncan cant do a downward dog any more than i can, so im not worried about his criticism.

the jog went ...okay. couldnt do it all but i modified everything so i could do it to my level. i did jog a lot more than i ever have before, though. so, yay!

had chinese for dinner tonite. veggie lomein and garlic veggies.
i had asked for a spring roll but was given an eggroll instead which really just ruins the entire meal. i really look forward to the spring roll the most. it sucks when you get something and cant eat it.
and its always me. i have never seen r.'s order get messed up. (not that id want it to but it really is always me)

i remember looking beforehand at people's tickers and thinking, wow.. 220-something. i cant wait to be 220-something.
and even now. i looked at someone's ticker earlier. 229. i thought, wow, i cant wait to be 229.
then im like, wait!! you DONT WANT to be 229!!!
i guess i am thinking 211... i cant wait to be 211. dont know why that number but its sticking with me.

    Congratulations!!!! I'm so happy for you! You are losing weight so fast that you are having trouble keeping track of the numbers.

    I'm trying my best to keep up with you, but hubby insisted on eating buffet at the Golden Corral last night. We call that restaurant the "trough" because everyone lines up to help themselves to large quantities of food. Needless to say, I'm full of salt today and avoiding the scale.

    You are doing a great job!!

    Wow! I'm so proud of you! 220 rocks!
    Because of you, I went looking for a Ms. Leslie dvd -- she's not on our channels. In fact, there is very little on our channels.
    I tried one yoga show a long time ago but it was too hard. And I get mesermerized by the leaders who always seem to be talking in a monotone from the bottom of their stomach without moving their lips. What's that about?
    I did find "Shimmy" which is a belly dance show and I gave it a try just for fun -- and it was fun!
    I never did find the Ms. Leslie dvds so I bought a dance one instead. Maybe I'll try it tomorrow.
    Thank you for all the inspiration.
    And a challenge: I see your 30 wall push-ups and I'll raise you ...35 push-ups for tomorrow.

    Dee!!!!!! YEAY!!!! 220?!?! AWESOME!
    I feel the same way about the numbers on the scale. BUT...I am really excited that you have taken on jogging!!! YEAY! Actually, I was talking with DH about jogging (I was having a Biggest Loser moment). I dont really do it for longer than 2 minutes without gasping for I am really excited that you found a way to do it comfortably (well, as comfortably as you can in an actilve way emoticon )

    Keep it up Lady, soon you will see One-derland!!!
