Weekly Weigh In :

Posted by Susan on April 11, 2009

As usual, today is my weekly weigh in. Becuase I have been up all night thinking about yesterday (bad day), I felt a little less excited about today. I got on the scale and what did I see ? Another 3.8 lb. loss ! Wow ! I am happy. I worked hard last week, and I am happy with my reward. Here are my weight loss stats for this week :

Weight : 152.8 ( 3.8 lb. loss)

Fat % : 34.7 % ( down 1.7 %)

BMI : 22.7 ( down 1.7 finally at a healthy BMI !!!)

Aside from the end of the week downer yesterday, this week was great in regards to diet and exercise. I ate what I should, worked out every morning, and drank all of my water. I felt great all week, and I am happy with my progress physically, mentally and emotionally.

I am planning to do a few things around the house today and if weather permits do some yard work. If not, it is expected to be nice tomorrow so I will definately get out there. If today turns into an indoor day, I will be cooking for the week, and cleaning , and of course Kate (my niece ) and I will be coloring Easter eggs.

I hope everyone has a Happy Easter ! Enjoy , and don’t let that evil Easter candy get you down !

Early Morning Workout

Posted by Susan on April 6, 2009

For some weird reason I was looking forward to this morning’s workout. I am not sure if it was because of my new official weight (155 lbs. YAY!), or what. I didn’t even press snooze this morning for that extra 9 mins. I got right up and did my thing.

I have to admit, for the most part , I love my morning workout routine. I may not love the “idea” of it but I absolutely love how I feel when I am finished. Plus , I don’t work a desk job, I am pretty much on the run most of my 8 hour day, so the thought of working and then doing a workout is just not appealing to me. I am happy to get it done so I can come home from work and relax.

I am glad that Monday is behind me, the remainder of the week flys by once I’ve survived dreaded Monday ! I don’t exactly love my job. At this point I tolerate it as best I can, and just keep reminding myself that I am very lucky to still have one !

I realized something today. This is the first year ever, that I haven’t indulged in my favorite thing in the world. I LOVE Easter candy…..Cadbury eggs, Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, Marshmellow Peeps, Jelly Beans…….I love it all, and usually find this time of year especially challenging. For whatever reason this year it hasn’t been bad at all. I haven’t had ANY! I even made up my niece’s Easter Basket last Friday night and didn’t even snitch a single jelly bean, or milk chocolate egg. Unbelieveable ! I still have 4 days until I can actually say I made it through the entire Easter Season, but I think I will be okay. Now that’s progress !
