In December when I got to my breaking point with my weight and decided to get serious about my weight loss I kept seeing previews for season 14 of the Biggest Loser. I decided to start recording each episode. I have watched each episode whether Elijah has liked it or not. I have felt bad for the white team since they had one person quit during week one and then lost the weigh in for week one. Then they were down to 3 players. Then they lost another weigh in and somebody else was sent home. So now the white team was down to Pam and Danni. I have been routing for Danni for a while now. Then in week 5 the white team lost another weigh in and Pam was sent home. So Danni was on her own for 2 weeks. This week they started on the singles which means no more teams. Danni almost lost the weigh in this week. This show has been an inspiration for me trying to lose weight. Yesterday I was afraid to track my calories. I know they were going to be above 1550. I had cookies, pumpkin muffins as well as spaghetti. Today I tracked my calories and I was below 1550 by 151 calories. Yesterday it rained so we stayed inside. Today it was gloomy outside but since mom had today off Elijah and I went to Target while mom got her hair cut. I walked around a bit. Then Elijah wanted to go outside so I was like alright lets get some pants on you boy and get your fireman boots on and get the mail. It was gloomy but warm but not raining and there were puddles. I was like lets walk around the complex and then go get the mail and you can go in the puddles. He agreed to it. So it took us half hour to get around the complex. We had to stop so he could run or jump in the puddles and we had to stop a few times to get the water out of his boots. It felt nice to be able to go outside and walk. I wanted to walk around the complex twice this morning but that didn't happen. Elijah was up at 3 because he had a bad dream so I got him back to sleep about an hour after he crawled back into my bed. I'm not sure who fell asleep first me or him. When I woke up it was 8:10 and a few minutes later he wakes up and says it's rise and shine. Rise and shine is his new way of saying it's time to wake up. Elijah is such a little person. He is something else. Never know what he's going to say. I didn't feel like doing the entire fab ab calendar so I did 2 sets of 40 situps. I looked at myself sideways in the mirror and I noticed that my stomach is getting flatter just below my belly button. Wee hoo! I didn't do the kick ass calendar today. Just wasn't feeling it. I think on top of the calendars I am going to ad some exercises. I found on Pinterest a leg lift exercise that uses a step ladder and we have one of those and I am going to modify the kick ass calendar to include that exercise. I found an exercise that works with love handles which is one of the things I want to lose. Not finding my love handles very attractive just like I'm not finding my abs very attractive. I have been asked several times if I am pregnant. The answer has been no. You gotta do something to get that way and I haven't done something to get that way since my 25th birthday and I turned 27 this past September. So it's been over 2 years. Not even a possibility of being pregnant. So it's 9:30 and I'm going to look around the site at stuff and then get off and get to bed. Hopefully Elijah sleeps in so I can do the wii fit plus tomorrow morning or I at least get up early enough to do it.
