If Looks Could Kill--NSV for me
So, I was headed into the gym last night & 2 gentlemen were walking in ahead of me, one of them had on an extremely fitting "Extreme Couture" black t-shirt & I thought , "OMG! This guy is massive--as in extremely ripped!" I go inside, head to the locker room and didn't think anymore about it.
As I walked out of the locker room, I was face-to-face with this same "Extreme" gentleman. I almost ran right into him head on.
It was one of my ex boyfriend's!!! When we dated in 1998, he was a body builder, but non-competitive. It was the one of the fittest years of my life, as he is the one who got me into fitness.

I was just in complete shock, b/c I haven't seen him since 1999, & I had been out of bed maybe 3 hours! {{nice}}

Anyway, we chatted for a minute before I headed to my usual routine--tanning, the stairs, and the free weights.
When I got over to the weights, he came over and asked what I was specifically training for. I told him about the 1/2 and how I couldn't wait for it to be over so I could do Body Recomp. This was an excerpt of the convo:

Me: Yeah, I've been training for this 1/2 and I'm having to eat too much and too many carbs. I am finding it difficult to lose any more weight with all of the extra food.
Him: {Giving me an "If looks could kill/puzzled look"} What? You're trying to lose weight?
Me: {Laughing} Yes! I've already lost 20 lbs, but I still have some to go.
Him: OMG! Where? And why are you lifting all this? You could just tone. You're not building are you? {I was doing squats w/50lbs plus the 45 lb bar}
Me: I'm trying to pick my rear up off the floor. I'm not getting any younger.
Him: {Still peering at me, all over} You're doing a good job of that!
Me: {Still laughing} I don't mind if I stay at this weight as long as it looks different.

I wish I had taken a photo of him looking at me. It was seriously funny.
I guess that was a little confirmation that I have lost enough weight!

He volunteered to "assist" my efforts after the 1/2. It's funny how so many people know exactly the routine you should be engaging in! However, he must know some, he was by far the most muscular person I have ever seen face to face--too much imo, but still--quite impressive @ age 40!

Another drive by post.... I am falling behind with my personals... I esp. wanna tell Krystal about my thryroid experience...but that will hopefully happen tonite.

Jo, I ended up starting my fast yesterday after lunch (1pm-1pm). It was an insane day and i was hungry when we got home around 8 pm, but I was really tired and just went to bed.

Today I am off to Ikea. DH has a meeting in that area this morning and I will hitch a ride with him.

I "lost" 1 1/2 of my "gain". 148 this am.

I will be back later. Have a FAB day!!

Morning!!

I took over 20000 steps again yesterday. It was a good day! I also had a funny NSV; I was doing my walk and my exercise pants kept falling off me. I wore those when I was 165-170 pounds and now at 145-148 pounds they would not stay up. I looked really funny my whole walk because I kept pulling them higer and higer. i guess I can retire those ones

Krystal, I have a thyroid promlem and have had it for nearly 20 years. My endo says if one's values are "normal" but they are at low end; those people actually have a slow funtioning thyroid. So anything under 4.0. Now he keeps me around 0.5 and 1.5. My GP originally did not diagnose me, and I had massive amount of symptoms, I finally saw a specialist and life got better.

Also; wow,wow,wow! I liked your NSV!

Jo, I hope you had a nice birthday!! What did you do? Did you go shopping yet?

Star, I like doing things with my kids. That is cool that they are with you and getting in shape together.

Where is Larry????

Sum - What an excellent NSV!!! I love a great NSV and they seem to be abundant with this crew lately For a slower weight group, we sure do reshape nicely

On my end - took off my jeans last night without unzipping or unbuttoning them. DH laughed at me as I danced around after, I am a ham! Well, did the elliptical as planned, then right into the Extreme Abs Bootcamp... OUCH! BUT... was able to get 2 hostages last night!! YAY! DD16 and DS both joined me! Misery loves company - we were all feeling the burn Have a super day!

Thanks for the birthday wishes guys. It was a great day, my friends and family made me feel special without a lot of hoopla, just the way I like it.

With all this shopping for dress clothes, I have been fasting quite a bit, going somewhere between fast 5 and ESE most days. Just walks in the mornings and then all the walking with shopping. I haven't done any challenges or weights this week. I will do better next week.
I was still pretty hungry yesterday once I broke my fast. I keep craving chocolate. I hope today I am back to normal.

I found 4 dresses I like, if I get time I will take pics and post so you guys can help me out. I will probably return whatever I don't end up wearing, I certainly don't need 4 dresses

I really look forward to reaching goal and starting to stock my wardrobe with nice things that I know I will fit into for a long while.

Krystal, I loved your story about your x. That must have made you feel great!

Sum, that is too funny, time to get some new pants for sure! I still have safety pins in my shorts I wear to run in. I keep meaning to take them in, but forget about it until I go to put them on. I just bought some long yoga pants from old navy yesterday because my loaf around the house pants are getting to be a trip hazard

Star, I love it when I can do that! Makes for a trip to the bathroom hassle free
