up and running

Jan 18, 2013

Everything went good for Christmas and I got back in the gym.  I have been still working out 5 or 6 times a week and love how far i have come.  I was in class today and was keeping up with the teacher !!! And i wasnt stopping half way.  The abs are still hard and not my favorite, but there are getting better. I can feel them now!! My face is looking really good and everybody is talking about my arms looking good, its my stomach that I would love to start seeing go down some.  I went to the mall and tried on some silver pants on and i got into a 34   I remember in high school being a 36 as my smallest.  My workout pants are a medium and large tops too!! 

I started a weight loss challenge I have a partner and its 12 weeks long. At Christmas I was 199 and have stayed in the 190 .  This week i made it to 189 and today 186 .  They have cash prized for 1st  2nd and 3rd.  If i get one i want to use my money for a new road bike :) They ride at the Y on Wednesday nights and they have a 100 mile ride in September  that is a goal for me.  Just need to save some pennies up for the bike.


Happy Thanksgivings

So turkey day is right around the corner and i feel really good, I have been working out 6 days a week and losing about 3 to 4 pounds a week.  I down to 223 and so happy i cant believe where im at.  I had been working out in the pool 3 days a week and just felt like i need more of a workout, it was getting to easy so i put my big girl panties on an jumped into the cardio core class.  Let me tell you i get a workout now!!!! It's a burn from the min you start the class and the teacher is always saying if you want to make it harder then add this lol im just keeping up and I love it I works every muscle on my body.  Im really working my butt off.  But i feel get and can really see it working!! I need to put a new pic up I really see it in my face.

My husband starts his liquid diet on Monday and has his date for December 10 :) 


2 week check up

Nov 04, 2012

Everything went good with surgery, I was up and walking as soon as they would let me and never had any gas pains.  I did have a pain in my side on day 2 i didnt know if I over did it with the walking or what but the doctor came in the morning and said to take the drains out.. And it went away right after they came out... which I would like to say that  the feeling of them pulling it out was so weird and it hurt . 

But Im doing really good i have been picking up the baby and have no pains with it so the doctor said it was fine which make Bailey happy.  They said im doing really good at my check up nothing to worry about .  Im on the high side of losing and they hope for me to be down 20 to 25 pounds by my 2 month check up.   They gave me the ok to workout but no pool till thursday.   I have been walking on the tread mill for 1 mile a day and have been doing my just dance lol. I feel great and I can see the weight coming off.  today  my weight was 231

So its day three and not to bad.  I got up and weighted myself down to 257!!!! So happy to see that number after always staying at 258. I have been working out everyday to get as much weight off as i can before surgery.  I know after surgery it may be a couple of weeks before i can get back to the Y.  I have been taking water aerobics and i love it!! MY hips hurt so bad went i try to walk on the treadmill so i have been in the pool 3 times a week for a month.  I have really noticed a big different, I walk on my treadmill yesterday and it wasnt killing me.
