I’m baaaccckkk … for an update after my first week on this Inspire Me: Healthy link up party.
First off, let me say … where did this week go? What the heck?! It feels as if I just posted to the world about my flabbiness and need to get healthy and BAM it’s Thursday and I have to post again. I am so not prepared today. I actually had pictures and a kickin’ recipe to share … and that is so not gonna happen today. Good grief!
I really do have a great excuse. Well, at least to me it seems like a great one. One word for ya friends … BUSY!
What a whirlwind week it’s been … my husband and I actually had a date “weekend” [thank-you MeeMaw & PopPop], my son started back to school, my daughter moved away to college [insert crocodile tears here], my son had like a whole latta karate stuff going on, and my boss left for a two week vacation. All this peeps on top of my normal routine.
But, enough whining. Enough said. On to the business at hand.
Last week I told all ya’ll that I weighed 131 pounds. Yep. Posted it on the world wide web so that makes it true, right? Uh, wrong. When I got home and actually weighed myself [which I guess I should have done beforehand but where is the fun in being accurate?] … that stupid scale said 132 [ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-TWO] pounds. Where did that new pound come from?? Ugh. Whatever. So my week actually started out a pound heavier … and my spirits started out a tad more saddened.
But, I didn’t stay down long. No sir-ee Bob [love that commercial] … nope, I kicked sadness in the bootie and got busy.
This week did not go as my goals had planned. I would not classify it as a total failure … but for sure not a big time win either.
To start with I did NOT work out two times at the gym. But I DID work out once … and when I did I used that butt-kickin elliptical for 5 miles my friends. I was sweating in places that I didn’t even know had glands. It was not a pretty sight. And I don’t even want to think what I might have looked like on that machine with my arms and legs flailing in opposite directions.
Even though I did not do an intense work out twice … I DID do ab work every-single-day and I did alot of weird calorie buring stuff that annoyed my husband. Bonus points for annoying the ole hubs 🙂 You know, like marching around the house during commericals … or marching in place while I curled my hair. Anything to burn more calories than I consumed. And that my friends, is a major accomplishment! From ZERO to that … stop the presses and call the newspapers … I deserve a ticker tape parade and I ain’t ashamed to admit it.
I also did NOT eat an apple every day, but I DID drink so much water that I have become quite familiar with where the restrooms are in every square inch of this town. My new motto should be “Gotta Pee? Just ask Me!”
I still have not measured myself because frankly I am too cheap to buy a tape measure. I figure when my pants fit again – because I’m also too cheap to buy new pants – then I’ll know I lost inches!
And truthfully, I can’t remember what my other goals were which most likely means I failed at them anyways so why bother bringing them up again 🙂 Bottom line … 131 pounds this morning on the scale. And yes, I did actually weigh myself. WOOT WOOT! Lost me one pound. I guess choo-chooing around the house during commericals pays off a bit, huh!
And because I have no idea how to end this post … I’ll just pretend I’m my son and say “Peace Out”.
