The days are flying by.  I’ve been out running errands and grocery shopping the last couple of days and it seems like the day is over so fast.  I guess that part of getting old.  🙂

WEIGH-IN DAY (yesterday) – 211.0 lbs, down 2.0 lbs

IMG_2014032453646 I finally made the 40 lbs total lost and I am stoked.  I did my elliptical on level 10 IMAG1966_1and felt great afterwards.  I also got an extra walking workout in while browsing Goodwill Thrift Store.  My back definately told me I was walking/standing for three hours.

I went shopping in my closet again and found a new outfit to wear.  I just love shopping in my own closet.  I have pants down to size 10 waiting for me, along with smaller shirts.  I finally fit into some new PJs that I love.  I feel like I’ve given new meaning to “shopping at home”.   🙂

button3up As for my Journey, I lost 2 lbs for my weekly weigh-in on yesterday, bringing my total lost to 40 lbs.  On Monday, I did the Elliptical L10, 45 min, 3.4 miles, 413 calories burned. I  I’m well within my food allowance for the day. Listened to my “Eating Smart” track on my  Enjoying Weight Loss Hypnosis CDs . Moving on down to Onederland!   button2up


It’s time for me to play catch-up for the week.  The last time I posted was on Sunday, March 2nd.  I’ve not been feeling well all week, between an upset stomach, gastrointestinal problems, and a severe headache today.

WEIGH-IN DAY – 214.8 lbs, down 2.2 lbs
IMG_2014030310719I had my official weigh-in on Monday, March 3rd.  I did my elliptical on Monday, readout on the left.

Al took me out to lunch on Monday and I must say, it was delicious!   DotLobsterDinner4Mar3_2014We went to the Outback for Steak and Lobster; a special for $14.99.   Al doesn’t like seafood so he ordered the same meal as mine and gave me his lobster tail.  The lobster was grilled to perfection, as was my 4 oz steak, and I enjoyed every morsel.  We both had salads as our side.  My meal came in at about 800 calories and worth every calorie.  🙂  IMG_201403058313


I did get up on the elliptical on Wednesday, March 5th.  Readout above.

Al and I went to my brothers house on Wednesday for dinner.  He made an awesome meatloaf with rum cake for dessert.  I had just a sliver and counted it in my journal.  Good times.

I couldn’t find my phone before the readout went away but I did do the elliptical on Friday, March 7th.  45 minutes, L8, 3.5 miles, 419 calories burned.

IMG_2014030846606I decided to do another workout this morning as I’ve had a rough week with the scale.  My official weigh-in is on Monday so hopefully this workout will help.  🙂  I got a good burn today, considering I was coming off a severe headache early this morning.  I thought getting up on the elliptical would help the headache and it did!

It’s been a very lazy Saturday afternoon.  I’m hoping I will kick whatever bug I have soon.  I just feel drained.

button2upAs for my Journey, it’s been a rough week with the scale not cooperating with my good deeds.  In all fairness, being sick most of the week did not help.  I also really did bad on getting my water in.  Big mistake.  button2up


Looking back…  and I thought I was overweight.  Unbelievable!
