Week 1: 177.4
Week 2: 177.2
Week 3: 177.2

Well the jogging thing didn't work out so well at work. A new intern started this week and I don't think I've ever seen someone walk that slow when trying to get a job done. Not only can I not jog when she is with me, but I can't even walk at a normal speed, which doubles the time it takes to do the am and pm checks. On top of being annoyed by this my boyfriend decided to be a jerk this week and make me feel guilty for wanting to go to White Oak Conservation Center in Florida to pick up 2 crane eggs for work, so now I am not going. He didn't realize how stupid he was being until I had already passed the opportunity on to someone else. So this week was full of stress, and I ended up going off plan. Hopefully this week will be better.

Is it really week 3 already? I've pretty much undone the little progress I made last challenge. Keep overindulging, making excuses etc etc (I'm sure most of you have been there every now and then ) DH is still doing his crazy commute until the end of the month, can't wait until it's over! Really need to get myself under control one of these days for more than a week at a time! Hope everyone's doing great, there's still a few weeks left to redeem myself!

Emily, Kasey, we can pull through this!

I had a great workout today. I ran 3.25 miles (35 minutes) and did 25 minutes on the elliptical as planned. Food has been great so far and I hope I can keep it going. I would love to be able to get back tonight after the kids eat to run a little more. BUT I wont be doing it.

I've been looking back at my "records" that Ive been keeping since I started my weight loss. I seem to have real trouble in April. I have put on 10 pounds every april since I started (except this one, so far I am only up 4 pounds). The difference this time is I am still working out. In the past I stopped working out and started eating terrible after my D-land trips. I don't know why. The good news is, each July I started losing again and I lost those pounds plus. Of course I don't want to gain anything else, but at least it fits the pattern.

Jeni- I don't even understand how a body can gain 4 or 5 pounds this quickly.
I am just SSSSSOOOOOO frustrated. Thought I was going to see a new low this month. HA!!! FAT CHANCE!!!!!

Mindy~I do that. It drives me crazy. Ive found that if I have too much sodium I gain, too much sugar, I gain. Thats the one bad thing about weighing everyday. On the other hand, I have found how certain things affect my body. Things effect me more now than they ever have. I try cutting back on the things I know make me gain. No amount of exercise helps. I don't know why or how it just does. you'll get there.


TOM ERRRR. Maybe it will bring relief to the scale, but ouch.

Makenna finally made it through swimming without whining she was ready to go home. That was a big step. Tonight I'm going to ask Tommy's teacher if she thinks he's ready to move up.

W 80 oz
E 35 run 25 elliptica
E 1400 cals keeping it clean
D shopping today. Keep active, dont sit for long periods, mop my kitchen floor.

Last night was my last night at the Y - my last Zumba class, for now. I bought myself a Dancing with the Stars workout DVD and tried it this morning. I was running late so only got to do about 15 minutes. I think I will enjoy it. Now that my free trial at the Y is over I'll be back to working out at home with my Dance DVD, my Wii Just Dance & my kettlebell.

Hit my first goal today - under 240. I hope everyone is having a good week ~ keep up the good work.

Kris~ Congrats on getting under 240!! Thats absolutely wonderful!!

So, I must be extra cranky (thanks TOM). There is a time limit on the cardio machines at the gym 30 minutes during busy times. Thats fine, I usually do 30 minutes +5 cooldown. Nobody has had a problem with this because it is what most people do. Now there is a group of ladies who come in and get behind a person and LOUDLY say "This ones been on for (fill in the blank) Minutes!" Then they get pi$$y when that said person goes over 30 minutes. (BTW, I'm usually on the ellipticals by the time these ladies get there. I hear and see everything they do. What really annoys me is that they complain that people are on the treads for over 30 minutes then they set their timers for 45-60 minutes!!!!!) These ladies practically climb on the treadmills while someone is on it. There are 3 of them and they are all over 60. Well the loudest one got behind me today. and I was really into my run and forgot to hit the cool down button at 30 minutes. so at 35 minutes I realized it and hit the cool down button so I ended up on it for 40 minutes
When I was done the woman very loudly said "you know there is a 30 minute time limit on this machine."
I said "yes during busy times it is, but there are 5 ellipticals free I don't think that counts as busy."
She turned red and told me that since all the treadmills were full I should be courteous and get off after 30 minutes."
I said "of course you're right, I'm sorry. So since the treadmills are full you will be setting your timer for 30 minutes right?"
She stared at me for a minute and started dialing her buttons (45 minute for her timer I might add.)

Normally I'm not that cranky and I would have just smiled and said I'm sorry.


But my workout was great. I spent 21 minutes on the elliptical, then a tread freed up so I grabbed that. I ended up running 3.6 miles Now its time to grab my weights and do a few arm exercises and abs.

Thanks Jeni. It was nice to finally reach my first mini goal. When I set that goal, I never imagined it would take me 8 weeks to reach it .

Happy Friday!
