Weekly Weigh In

I missed Monday. Long weekends freak me out. It didn't feel like a holiday to us because our schedule is so not normal to begin with. All day yesterday I thought it was Sunday. When I woke up today and realized it was Tuesday I felt like I was robbed of a whole 24 hours. Hmph.

I did manage to remember to go to the gym yesterday, so somewhere in the recesses of my brain I must've known it was Monday. Somewhere. In one of those deep, dark corners.

Anyway, my current weight is 215.4. That's a .8 lb drop from last week. I started my period right after last week's weigh in, so that could have been another reason that it was slightly up (that and the fact that I wasn't counting calories.)

I planned on upping my cardio last week, but it just never happened. Both boys were sick and Boy 1 ended up with a major asthma event and well, you know what happens when life throws curve balls.

I'm back to counting calories and also tracking my protein. I'm still positively in love with this new weight lifting program. I started Week Three yesterday and the results are astounding! Two weeks ago I started out on the cable row machine with 50 lbs. Yesterday I was at 90 lbs. I hope to hit 100 lbs next week. I know I'm losing inches all over and it's killing me to not measure myself. But not until I'm finished with this first stage. If all of workouts happene when scheduled, I should complete my final workout of this stage on June 24. I'll take my measurements on Monday, June 27. I can't wait!

I'm going to be trying some new recipes this week. If all works out, I'll post them here.


  1. Seriously-I swear my kids know when I have something planned because they always get sick.

    Great weight increase on the machine-you are a MACHINE!

  2. I thought of you yesterday when I ate my Cheezits at the Swim Club. Keep up the great work, you are inspiring to get my butt movin'
