I was just asked to be a bridesmaid in the wedding of a good friend from high school! This will give me even more incentive to lose weight. The wedding might be in March, but it all depends on her school schedule if she gets into PT school. I am sooooo excited for her!
I had a couple of rough days eating wise, but I am ready to get back on track. I had an amazing workout at the gym yesterday. I did my ab stuff and then I did weights for 50 minutes. After that it was treadmill time! Today I ran for a FULL 15 minutes before stopping!!!!!! I did this at a pace of 5.7 mph. I then walked for a couple of minutes and ran for another 5 minutes. Finished up with walking for about 10 minutes. Then on to the elliptical for 35 minutes where I got to read my new Time Magazine with Thomas Jefferson on the Cover. I simply adore Thomas Jefferson! I had every intention of reading the articles, but since I couldn't give it my undivided attention, I will savor it another time.

Since it is a holiday weekend the gym is closed today, tomorrow, and Monday. I am taking today as my off day and I will probably walk around the neighborhood and do some weights.

I made some pink lemonade crystal light last night and while I must say that it was a welcome change, I still like my water better =)

ok, I have been inspecting my body quite a lot the week and one of the main concerns is sagging skin. I never really noticed it before this week, but it appears to me that is is becoming more prevalent. I notice it on my legs below my butt and on my stomach below my belly button. And of course my bat wings. I am really scared about it! I know there is nothing I can do about it right now except to weight train, but all the same it still worries me. Hopefully after a year at goal, my skin will do some snapping in to place and I won't have to worry too much about surgery.

Oh man, I have a feeling tomorrow morning is not going to be pretty. I just ate 3 slices of Digorno Pizza and Ben and Jerry's Oatmeal Ice Cream. I have a feeling since I haven't been eating much fatty foods it will not be pretty. But, I can hope for the best! This morning I was tired again, so I didn't make it to the gym until about 9 AM. When I got there I did my weights for 40 minutes and hit the treadmill for 35 minutes. Only 15 minutes of running. No elliptical today. I will be doing that tomorrow and reading People! =) This evening I also went to the Strength and Toning class that I really like. It is a good mix of aerobics, stretchings, weights, and yoga. The yoga at the end of the class is so calming. I will definitly be going back next week!

On Saturday I am going to the Outback Steakhouse with my roomate before we go to see . I am going to get the Walhala Past with chiken mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. It is 18 points, but I will be taking half of it home. No salad, but I will be eating bread. I can not weight!
Shorts should be banned. They are just not attractive. It doesn't matter what size you are, they just don't look good. I guess that is why I haven't worn a pair of shorts out in almost 4 years.

I am soooooo tired right now! I didn't get out of bed until about 8:45. I then got ready to go to the gym. I did 40 minutes of weights and then 35 minutes on the treadmill. I only ran for 15 minutes, but 15 minutes is better than 0 minutes. I am going to an aerobics an after after I get off work. It is the same class I went to last week. It is the strength and toning class.

My West Palm Beach trip is a week from today!!!!!!!! I am so excited. I will have definitly met my goal to be 250 lbs if I keep it up like I have been. I can't wait to see everybody! I am going with a bunch of guys and a few girls. I doubt the guys will even notice though. I do however need to get a new swim suit. I am going to try an look when I go hom in a few weeks. I am not really looking forward to looking for one because I will be inbetween plus and regluar sizes. Oh well, I guess it could be worse!

So this morning I decided sleep would be a little better than working out. So I only worked out for 35 minutes today. I did my streching and ab routine and then hopped on the treadmill. I pretty much did the same as yesterday, but today at a speed of 5.7 mph!!!! SO that means I ran a mile in 10:31. I think before I increase my speed anymore I will work on increasing my distance.

Also, on the scale, I weighed 252 this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is a whopping 6 lb loss. Now I am excited about this, but at the same time it is sort of scary. I just hope that I can keep up my average of about 2 lbs for week.

I had 2 candy bars yesterday-full size- York Peppermint Patty and The new Triple Chocolate Twix. I didn't even go over my points. They were good and they definitly satisfied the craving I was having at the time.

Ciao, ciao!

I have no clue what has gotten in to me. I RAN again at the gym today at a speed of 5.6 mph! I walked for 2 min, ran a mile in under 11 min, walked for 3 minutes, ran for 4 more minutes, walked for 5, and then walked for 5 more! Man I think I am trying to challenge myself and I really like it! So I spent more than 2 hours at the gym today. I am going to back at 5 for a step class.

I found a glorious breakfast item at the store on Saturday. It is a Lean Pocket breakfast sandwhich. It is Sausage, egg, and cheese. It is only 3 points. It is kind of small, but it definitly satisfied that McDonald's breakfast craving that I occasionaly get! Yeah for an awesome way to spen 3 points!

Man oh man. My stomach is not happy right now. I went out for a very late night meal at the Sunset Grill that put me way over my points and I just do not feel good right now. I had a sonoma salad with apples, toasted almonfs, blue cheese, and a yummy dressing that was point friendly. But I didn't stop there. I got the chocolate bomb cake. ahahah. Not good for my stomach this morning, but boy was it good last night!

I just joined The President's Challenge. I think it will be a good way to keep track of the activity I do. I don't plan on buying the "rewards" though. I joined a group of fellow Weight Watchers. The group ID number is 13462. Check it out, if it interests you sign up!

I went grocery shopping again yesterday afternoon. Lean Cuisines were 40% so I stocked up and so were my frozen veggies! I also bought my La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Tortillas that I love. When you have 2 they are one point a piece! I also bought some SnackWells cracked pepper crackers. 5 crackers are 1 point but 10 are 3. So I guess I will just be eating 5 a day when I have them. They are soooooo yummy with Laughing Cow cheese. MMM, MMM, Good!

As far as excersising goes, I am taking the day off =) It is my lazy day today. Tomorrow I plan to go to the gym in the morning and then step class in the evening.

Last night I wore my size 18 NY and Co. Jeans out. I think I am going to weight a little longer before I wear them out again. They aren't uncomfortable or anything, I would just like them to fit a little better.

I am out!
