I wuz here!!

Remember back in the day when we carved "I wuz here" into everything?

Well it has apparently been a minute since I wuz here.....so...

It's 12:43 AM its been a crazy couple of weeks....I have the YoYo thing going on with my weight.....and I think water retention is highly involved in that....

But I am exhausted, kids, work, school, appointments, tennis matches, gym.....So

On that note I am going to carve those words into my blog for now....
I haven't forgotten about y'all!
 
TTFN!
Gnight!

Just a quickie...

Hey Y'all! It's been kind of a crazy week. Running the kids around and work is non stop this week.

Lets see, last post was Saturday... Since then I have....

Worked out on Sunday for roughly 45 minutes.....

Daylight savings time is killing me this week. I must admit....I have not worked out since......Sunday!

It's been 3 days.....Mad Monday weigh in showed a 2.5 lb gain...sitting at 247.9....The results of my non discipline!

Totals:
2.1lbs down since 2/16/15!
26.9 lbs. down since 8/22/12 (When it all began!)
12.5 lbs. down since 10/15/12! (Lap Band Surgery)

S'ok, this too shall pass.

I don't expect this week to be spectacular either....Guess we will find out on Monday...

I know I know.....

It's been almost a darn week since my last post...YIKES!!
OK So here is a quick update since Monday....

Tuesday night I had an easy, EXTREMELY light workout with my trainer. He concentrated a lot on my tendinitis, carpal tunnel, and sciatica because they were all killing me!

Wednesday was a day off. Well a working out day off....Thursday morning 862 calories gone!! Was a C25K day followed by 30 minutes of kickboxing!

I did get a couple of awesome gadgets! In my never ending search for a heart rate monitor that does NOT have a chest strap (I hate these uncomfortably forever squeezing me things!). It takes me forever to make decisions to spend money so I thought about this for like, 4 days! But, I decided to purchase the Mio Alpha 2! Has fantastic reviews! I have only used it twice but so far I love it!
Anyone that knows me knows I am a total gadget geek! I have been wanting a Fitbit Aria for about 3 years. But, I had to get over that "scales are bad" mentality. (With the cost of this thing throwing it was not an option!) I do really love my Fitbit tho! So I did it! I purchased the Aria! I have stepped on it 5 times this week because I weight myself way too much, but it's cool! It is wireless and has Blue tooth (I think) and syncs with the Fitbit website and myfitnesspal (which I have been using religiously to track my food (accountability, this is a big thing for me, tracking that is)). I got black! And no that is not what I weigh LOL.
I have one more gadget I want to get and that is the Garmin swim. I want something that counts my laps cause I love to swim!
 
Ok that's all I got for now. Did I ever tell you all that I got a new furever friend last year? I am going to guess no, Meet Atlas! He's a husky! Love my furbabies!
 
And with that! I am off my friends! Have to run a few errands then come back and work out, and maybe go to dinner with the hubby, and then go see my daughter play her clarinet in pit orchestra for a school play!
 
I will post again soon! Until then...Carry on, keep plugging away, smile, and burn calories!
 
Cheers!

Mad Monday......

OK Here we go!! Back to Mad Monday Weigh In's!!
Today's weigh in......Wait for it.....So gotta get those toes done!
Super excited!! 2 weeks in a row with good losses!
Totals:
4.6lbs down since 2/16/15!
29.6 lbs. down since 8/22/12 (When it all began!)
15 lbs. down since 10/15/12! (Lap Band Surgery)
 
Looking at these totals is kind of sad, back in July 2013 I was 65lbs down.
So we are working back down that direction!
 
I have decided the quinoa pudding was not so good after it sat a day. So I will keep experimenting with that.
 
Sweaty photo for y'all today....Can  you say EWWWW!! LOL
Feels good!
Let's see, last post was 2/26/15, Thursday.
 
Took Friday off from working out, swapped it for Saturday instead. Saturday my friend I and spent a good hour working out, jogged, elliptical, swam a little, ahhhh and hot tub of course!
 
Sunday, another good day for a 1 hour workout! Today worked out at home. Still sticking with week 1 of the C25K program. I'm going to keep repeating week 1 until I build my endurance back up. I've been doing the C25K program for 2 weeks so far and I am still huffing and puffing pretty good. So, I will keep at it like before. Last time it took me 4 -5 months to complete the program, started it about this same time of year. Just keep moving!
 
In case anyone is interested, I came across this cauliflower usage thing....I have made the cauliflower pizza crust and it is awesome! I think I am going to attempt the loaded cauliflower soup this weekend! Love loaded baked potato. Always looking for healthy options. Check it out if you're interested :) 19 cauliflower dishes that will have you ditching the carbs!
I always love food suggestions! So let me have em'!
 
Tell me! What have you been up to this week?
 
Sweet dreams!
