This Week's Weigh In

Well there's still no stitching to show you... sorry folks!

I'm just posting this blog entry to let you know the scale was VERY kind to me this week! I lost 1.5 lbs! I am now 10.5 lbs from goal.... 0.5 lbs from 60 lbs lost. Its getting close! I have a busy hectic week going on here so finding time to work out is challenging and to make sure I eat well. I'd like to loose 0.5 lbs next week but I'd also be happy with staying the same.

I did make it out to the gym on Monday night, and I now have two gym buddies from work who just joined. It was nice to go to the gym on Monday and have someone to chat to while you're on the bike, elliptical, etc. Last night my back was bothering me so I didn't go to Taekwon-Do, but I did make a point of doing The Biggest Looser Weight loss Yoga DVD (yay Bob!)... Downward dog was a little rough on the back but I made it through the 30 minutes. Tonight I've not worked out... this is my rest day. Actually the truth is I've got 4 items to have framed by Tuesday so I went and bought supplies, and spent my evening cutting mats, building frames, etc (from 5:30 to 10:30). I would of had two jobs finished tonight, but someone (Todd!) left the glass cleaner in the garage... its pretty much frozen. So that ended that endeavour for tonight. Tomorrow I will go to the gym, its my parents wedding anniversary and we're not meeting until 6:30 for dinner so I'll go to the gym until its time to meet them for... mmmmm Indian Food! Friday the only workout I'm going to get is driving down to Brighton with Christin. Its supposed to warm up over the weekend so I'll pack my old running shoes and work out clothes and perhaps I'll go for a run outside Saturday and Sunday.

Congratulations on your continued weight-loss, Dani! Your success encouraged me to join Weight Watchers on-line about a month ago. I just love the food & activity point trackers! The program is working well for me and I'm 14 lbs from goal. :)

YEA DANI! Glad to hear the scaled moved for you. I'm hoping to make it to Ann's this weekend as well, we will see how it goes. I don't really want to come with the boys in tow but if they are behaving and I can bribe them away from the Wii, we might just take a Sunday drive! Of course, if you and and Christin want to stop on the way home, you know how to get here. I need to talk to Christin anyways, I sent her an email about the 20th of March but have not heard back from her...now I'll go away, and leave your comments alone!

Well done, Dani. With one thing or another, I'm hovering at about 30lbs lost for the past three weeks or so. Hopefully this will be a good week for me too.
