August is sort of getting better. I got to hang out for an extra day with my lovely, Saturday we played some mini-golf and laser tag (I got repeatedly tagged by a guy that looked about my age whom I swear was enjoying tagging the fat chick and was following me around everywhere, lol) Then lovely and I ate a nice light dinner. Yesterday was kind of horrible eating-wise though because lovely and I went to SerbFest with my mum and dad (big Serbian population here, including my boyfriend-- half-Serbian) and we ate at this place here called Ted Drewes, which has ice cream cups the size of small planets... I got the smallest planet and tried to eat healthy, and the collateral damage to my diet was only +0.8 lbs. Phew!
Went back to my normal schedule today. One hour of water aerobics plus some weights afterward... did my first ninety-pound weight today! I'm going to try this machine again over the week and hope to get to triple digits (!!!) in this particular weight. Wow, for a gal that got winded doing half a mile and using 5 lbs of weight, this is a pretty awesome milestone.
My dad got my boyfriend and I reservations at the Westin in Chicago!!!! He used one of those travel sites and got us a room for 62 a night. We're just beside ourselves since this is our first trip together and we get to live it up while we're there. It has a NICE pool and all kinds of crazy stuff.
Congratulations on the looser jeans! Maybe you'll get to go down a size soon? And I've heard about lululemon... a lot of my girlfriends are crazy about them and I've thought about giving them a try.
As for the 1 lb weight loss... just think, that's one pound you haven't gained! Try comparing inches lost too, I've only lost 3 lbs but I've lost 4" in my waist.
Good to see you and thanks for the post on July! I was wondering why everyone was chatting over there still lol. Water aerobics is a lot of fun, I am the second youngest in there besides my younger sister who also likes it, but since I spend a lot of time in the water and at waterparks, I figured I might as well do something constructive in the water. Hope you feel better, Crystal Light makes me feel a little wonky sometimes too.
Keep away from the nose ring!
It will heal much faster if you leave it alone.
I am no stranger to knee injuries, and what works for me is to do some low-impact aerobics til the knee heals up and then gradually ease back into your routine. I feel you on the moving around, I can't sit still either, but look into something like yoga or bellydance, something low-impact.
Good to see you again! You're in my thoughts... hope you feel much better soon!
I think my sister found a ride. She has a part-time caregiver who comes in and helps her and I think she is giving her a ride home. I'm sure she's relieved.
If I didn't get you, I'll be back.
Hope everyone has a good day/evening.
