Mad Monday Weigh In!

Happy Monday everyone! Tell me, does the time change affect anyone else? I was so tired today! YIKES! And I thought I got enough sleep last night. For some reason the time change always kicks my butt!

OK on to my Mad Monday Weigh In....and the results are!?!? 218.6! Down 2.8 lbs this week! Woo Hoo! I love progress! It makes all the pain and sweat worth it! So glad I recovered from party week!
So my totals are:
56.2 lbs down since 8/22/12!
41.6 lbs down since surgery on 10/15/12!
Super Excited!! I am only 8.8 lbs from my  1/2 way point! I would really like to his this 1/2 way point by my 6th month post-op check up in April. My 6th month appointment is on April 17th. So that gives me about 5 weeks to lose basically 9 more lbs. I think I can do this. Maybe I can be in Onederland by June!! OK...breathe....don't think too far ahead Chris! I have to remind myself to slow down every now and then :)
Today's work out was so hard to do. I was so tired. I went swimming after work and really wasn't feeling it. I even tried to cancel because I was running late, but they said they could still get me in because they had one free pool all night. So I took that as a sign that I was supposed to go. I did pretty good. I burned 179 calories swimming. That's pretty typical for swimming. And since they didn't need the pool I stayed a few minutes longer.
All the way home I thought about how I wanted to skip tonight's workout and just sit on the couch and watch TV. Tonight was a run night, I so didn't want to do it! But I did it anyway. And I'm glad I did. Today was day 1 week 5 of the C25K. 5 minute warm up, 5 minute jog, 3 minute walk, 5 minute jog, 3 minute walk, 5 minute jog and 5 minute cool down. I was so tired I really didn't think I was going to be able to jog for 5 minutes tonight let alone 3 times. But I did. I kept looking at the clock and saying "OK 4 more minutes", "OK 3 more minutes", "OK 2 more minutes", "OK OMG, Please hurry up!". My husband came home while I was running and wanted to talk while I was on the treadmill. Needless to say it was a short conversation because I can't really talk and run. LOL. I have to breathe instead! Luckily he caught on quick and let me finish. My run was good for 244 calories. So today's total was 423. For a tired work day I think that is  acceptable! I was going to try for an even 450 (I don't like odd numbers) but I was so ready to be done tonight. Important point of today. I did my workout. I finished.
So on to bigger and better things! My bed! I am so excited to sleep tonight lol. And it's not even 11 yet. Yes this is early for me. I am so not a morning person!
So I leave you with a hurricane hair picture. Yesterday when we were visiting with my sister, my nephew, my sister and I went in a hurricane machine at the mall to experience 78 MPH winds. I think I have felt winds like this on our porch but my nephew really enjoyed it. I ended up directly under the blower so I looked like Cousin Itt by the time we were done. Can you see the resemblance? I'm the tall one on the right. LOL My little man was lucky, his hair is super short! No muss there!
Good night friends! Thanks for reading and have a great Monday night!


  1. What a great loss! Way to go! I'm also so inspired by how you kept up with your workouts, even being tired. I fall prey to the trap all too often.

  2. Sweet loss!!!!!! Omg almost half way..... That's amazing! Your exercise routine is totally inspiring. :)

  3. Excellent loss and you're kicking butt on the workouts! Great job!

  4. Excellent loss...onderland is around the corner!

  5. OMG! That's a lot of weight lost already! You're doing fantastically! How do you like it? I know that when I lost weight that people immediately treated my opinions more seriously. And you also probably need to get serious about new spring fashions. :D
