Yay.. me... I think
Wednesday, November 17, 2010
Was at work this morning, talking work at first, and then the guy asked what does that mean. I had 11/1/2010 and the number 8 below it. I'm like uh a goal that I didn't make. So I tried to talk around it and I told him I wanted to lose 8 more pounds before that date. and it didn't happen. He was like "you're fine, you don't need to lose any more". You've done an awesome job the last few months. Wow.. that is coming from a gym rat. So then of course my profile pic pops up on my screen saver and he sees it and I'm like that's what I'm trying to get back to.. that's 8 pounds. He didn't say anything.
So later off to the gym I go, although I almost talked myself out of it because:
1) I was throwing up and other stuff yesterday
2) I felt really weak on my workout Monday, so I figured that was part of yesterday.
But I went, figured I would do something not too strenuous. Oh no, can't do that. I push and I can't bend my arms. BUT... I was doing tricep dips. First set I flared out and the trainer that has been helping me told me.. okay I'll pay more attention. The third set he brings the guy around that he's training, see how she's keeping the elbows tight and then points at my back, and look at that back, it's PERFECT. wow. thanks. I really work hard on my back. Wooooo weeee.
Now if I could get the lower back side in the same condition as the upper back side.
So, compliments make my day. I told my husband the other day that I hadn't lost a pound since July.. he's like yeah you have. Nope, scale is mean and vicious and vengeful and won't move. Now of course he's lost 10 in the last two weeks (I hate men) and he's not doing anything different except more walking at his job.
That's all I got. Still trying to lose that 8 pounds. But as my co-worker stated this morning, if you can get through the holidays maintaining, that's an accomplishment in itself too. Which he is absolutely right. and yes I will be at my gym Thursday morning after I put that turkey in the oven. It may just be cardio, but it will be something.
