Two orders of business today as usual - Friday Follow and my accountability check! We'll be accoutable first (as always)...
I was down right sick this week! It all started with a very unpleasant incident at 3:00am on Saturday that I'm not going to get into and continued into a full blown cold - yuck! The lack of energy, congestion, runny nose, and coughing kept me from going to boxing most of the week. I did manage to get back there yesterday and even did some Jillian Michaels today (her 30 min Yoga Burn DVD is pretty good...I'm definitely feeling the burn..) but my success this week revolved around the fact that I'm counting calories...trying to be VERY careful about how much I'm taking in as compared to my output. Fortunately for me I wasn't all that hungry anyways:)
Stats for this week:
Day 1 - 142lbs
Day 8 - 138lbs - woohoo!
Day 24 - 140lbs - ouch...no excuses, I have a new workout regime and a new resolve for eating healthy...we should start seeing that number drop.
Day 38 - 139.5 - okay, .5 lbs! I attribute that to the fact that i'm putting on muscle and muscle weighs more than fat right??:)
Day 45 - 137.5 - woohooo! Now, we fluctuated a bit this week but as of this AM this is where I'm at!!
I think next week I need to switch over to weeks instead of days....I'm having a hard time counting the days each time:) I originally started on days because I was going to do the 30day shred...ya, we see how long tha lasted! I'm still proud of myself for keeping with boxing though! It's still totally fun which makes me want to go even more.
This week I'm adding as many evening walks as I can with Noah as well as either Yoga or 30 day shred on my non boxing days. Let's see how that works!
Okay, all accounted for....on to fun things....this week I'm trying a different Friday follow group from the folks over at Trendy Treehouse (such a fun name)
Hello to all you new folks! I hope you find something here that you'll want to come back over and over again for! This blog was started to keep the fam up to date on my first pregnancy and has continued after my little Noah was born. Topics range from smitten momma ramblings to hard hitting pieces about 529 plans and the like (haha...hard hitting..maybe not but it's fun to dream that I could actually write something that could be considered hard hitting) and has a smattering of photography (of my little man of course) thrown in for fun.
Me? I'm an almost 30 something working mamma who would love to ditch her mortgage in order to stay home with little man but sadly bought when the housing market was at its peak and probably couldn't even break even in the sale. Some day I dream of leaving the corporate world to do something more creative - like photography or crocheting!:) But for now amuse myself with hobby photography and blogging.
Anywho...glad to e-meet you and I hope you leave a comment to let me know you stopped by!
