Hump Day Happenings!

Happy Hump Day everyone!! Today was 10 degrees warmer then yesterday and the snow is melting! It is suppose to be nice this weekend!! And maybe more snow next week! Nice!

Yesterday was an awesome workout day!! Since the weather was horrible, I decided to do my run in the gym at work before I headed home! I went 3.4 miles on the treadmill and I completed W6D2 of the C25K! 22 minutes of jogging!! After yesterdays run I am at 39.36 miles! Almost to that 40 mile mark! I was dying when it was over but I finished. To stay in routine I also repeated W3D2 making my total workout time 1 hour. And the sweat was pouring off of me! EWWW!!  I like my running gear! Lane Bryant size 14/16. Back in October I was wearing size 22!And I NEVER would have worn any legging type carpis!
I have to wear knee braces on both of my knees. I tore my left ACL skiing back in 2003 then had it repaired and all the extra weight has killed my right knee. So gross! I sweat so bad under my knee braces... See!?!?
But...510 calories gone!! Today was a slow day.....I went swimming and burned about 150 calories.
Then I came home and picked up my oldest so we could run over and look  at a ballroom to have her Sweet 16! I am so excited to be throwing this party! I didn't have a Sweet 16 so I am living vicariously though my kids :) This is my first baby girl! She will be 16 in two months!
All in all was a good day!
Tomorrow is a run day. I am going to try to run at work again. Tomorrow night I have a M'lis body contouring wrap scheduled. I am not sure if it is going to work. But I figure its worth a shot. It is supposed to be a permanent thing. I am hoping getting a few of these wraps help tighten things up a bit, smooth things out. They say you don't lose any weight just inches. The reviews are good too. We shall see.
Anywho!! Have a great night! And thanks for reading!


  1. Wow- so impressed by your workouts! Not only are you losing weight but you are strong and tight! Woo hoo! Your daughter is beautiful too, I know what you mean about the joy of doing things for them we didn't do/have...very healing. Especially when you are also living your own life doing things just for you, too. :)

  2. Congratulations on such an awesome run! x

  5. That's awesome!! I love the knee sweat!! Keep it up girl!!

  6. Hi Chris! Yes, a person sure appreciates size 14 when you/me used to be much bigger sizes. Your daughter is really pretty. I also have a teen daughter who is almost 16.
