A small loss

-.6 at w/in today---puts me at 167.4 and 12.4 pounds to go!!!! It was not what I had hoped for but my trainer, Michelle, said muscle weighs more that fat (we all know that right?---but it's still hard to fathom working soo hard for the last 2 and 1/2 weeks only got me .6).

So, my challenges this week are at trip to the mall Wednesday with my neighbor (and lunch out) and A GIRL'S NIGHT OUT (GNO) on Friday night. I will make good choices on both of these outings. You know CRUNCH TIME SJ!!!! I am at the 5 week mark on Thursday of this week and I need to make the next 5 weeks count for something.

My workout today was good but not great....I think I was down a little with the number on the scale and was a little behind the power curve during my workout. Friday I will concentrate on giving a little more during that 1/2 hour workout session. Maybe make up for the fact I wasn't on my game this morning.

Gonna go read some blogs!!!

Almost cried.....

So, I went to try on bathing suits (I now know after giving birth to two kids) that I need a bathing suit that has an underwire in the top section!!! So, I am in the dressing room with at least 10 bathing suits and they all look horrible. I have 5 weeks to get this body into shape and it's gonna be a lot of work. This is what procrastination has gotten me. I knew 4 months ago I would be putting this body into a bathing suit....and now it's down to crunch time.

I am usually very prompt on what I do in life, except for weight loss. I am sooo sick of my body looking like this. Frumpy, bumpy and lumpy!!! I haven't weighed in for 2 weeks now (last week the hubby and I went to Glenwood Springs and had a ball---alpine coaster, caves and rafting/kayaking), so I missed w/in last week b/c we were gone.

I w/in tomorrow (Tuesday) and I am anxiously waiting to see if my money spent with the trainer is paying off. I start my 3rd week with her today (this morning, an early morning work out.) She is kicking my butt, but the soreness actually feels good. So far it's been great---never the same workout. The last time she put pink boxing gloves on me, and I got to punch the hell out of the bag. Who's picture did I imagine on the bag? Yep, my dad's --but that is another story entirely, that I won't go into here.

So, I will post w/in results tomorrow....here's to hoping....

A quickie!!!

Been to the trainer twice now, and my third torture session is later on this afternoon. I have been extremely sore....this morning was the first time I could walk down the stairs without saying "ow...ow...ow" every step. She loves the lunges. And I don't. So, two more days of work and then the hubby and I are headed to Glenwood Springs for a few days without the kids. There are natural (smelly) hot springs there----that should do my muscles good if I can stand the stench. I didn't w/in Tues. I basically blew it off b/c of a headache. We will be away still for w/in this coming Tuesday. Anyway, an update for I don't know who....does anyone still read this?
