Off to the races

Well we had our 1st weigh in yesterday. I lost another 4 pounds, so add that to the 6 I lost the previous week and I'm down a grand total of 10! Not bad for two weeks, and my partner is down together we are rocking this out.

My trainer told me thing morning that he is having a cardio class on Thursdays, but I am NOT invited because of my hip pain and made a doctor appointment for next week. I'm sure it is just arthritis, but now we will know for sure!n. So i called

Right snack...Wrong Time

So last night I needed a snack! I had one truffle from Christmas. Then I wanted to sit down with the box and a big glass of milk and eat a few handfuls of truffles. But I didn't! I went to the kitchen to find a better snack. There were cookies, I found a doughnut, but I didn't eat them. Instead I got a small bowl of fresh blueberries and poured on some skim milk and had my snack. I was super proud of my will power and my good choice. So I told my trainer all about it (left out any mention of truffles) this morning in the gym (while I was doing cardio, go me!). And he agreed that it is a good snack... but then informed me that I should be going to bed on an empty stomach! There goes my ritual of bed time snacking...and he informed me that empty stomach means no eating after 7 or 8! So i might need to move dinner time up too!

It's Go time!

Contest Starts Today!
We had a nice big Mexican Take out dinner last night! Now just have to work on the Healthy eating and keep up on exercise. My partner S, is really motivated too. She is doing Medical Weight Loss Clinic (which I guess is pretty expensive) and having a contest with her sisters. So Im not worried about her dropping the ball at all. I just have to keep up my end!

Did cardio this morning, had a greek yogert for breakfast and eating soup for lunch.

New Year, New Drama?

So....who remembers all the drama from the weight loss contest from last year? The problems with partners, I was going to be with M but then one of the directors snatched him up and then B was going to get me a partner, then he tried to trick me into being partners with him (which pretty much sealed the deal for putting us OFF speaking terms) Then I ended up with A and he was a great partner, and we came in 4th out of like 30 something pairs...but then after all was said and done I gained all the weight back plus some! Remember? no?, I'm trying to forget too!

Well B announced on Monday at the company meeting that there is a new contest starting. I decided that I am not even going to get into the drama this year, and I'm not doing the contest. Then yesterday after me and D's workout we were talking in the hall and P, the director, walked by and said I could have M for a partner this year. I told him I'm not even doing it and he said "Why, you guys are working out already!" Then this morning when I showed up to Workout my trainer was telling me how I have been doing great, and how I could win this contest and I have so much potential....blah blah...and I told him I'm not doing it, and he said "I know, but if you did..." So then later today, I was in talking to S (who is a 'bigger girl' like me, but super sweet and fun) and she asked if I wanted to be i told her I'll think about it. Going to talk to the hubby tonight, and the trainer and D in the morning, and then I'll let S know....

But I have dropped a whopping 2 pounds since New Year.....a drop in the bucket, but a step in the right direction...

New Year, New You

So..I drooped a couple pounds! (Because I got my hair cut short! Haha I crack me up!)

I got a little talking to from my trainer last Thursday (last day of work before we were off for New Years). He said we need to hit it hard this year, and just do it, and other trainer-type phrases. But he is right. I told him that I need to weigh myself on a regular every day or I can make sure that the scale is going in the right direction. My scale at home isn't working (probably just needs new batteries) so I weighed in at the gym.....264! See, when I'm not looking, and my pants are finally tight....I've put on 10 to 20 pounds!

So I ate OK over the weekend....and did cardio this morning...and weighed in at 263. A good start....just need to keep it up.....again.

Ohh the weather outside is Frightful..

And my bed is so delightful
Need to work out, but I don't wana go!
'Cause it snowed, cause it snowed, cause it snowed!

I planned to work out on Monday, had my clothes laid out and everything. Then I woke up and saw the horrible storm that had snowed overnight. So I skipped the plan to work out and headed to work, got there 2.5 hours late due to traffic! Then planned to work out on Tuesday. Got up, dressed, started driving and found out that the traffic was still really bad, got to work at 7:30 so skipped the workout and just changed into my work clothes. So today I left early and actually got some good cardio in! I did plan to weigh myself on Monday, then Tuesday and never made it. Then I was there today and forgot to weigh in!

I started to feel better and cleared up on the 'bathroom issues' around Saturday. I waited a few days to make sure I was 'solid' then I started to take 3 pills a day yesterday. So far so good.
