A Cute Day

Made it to Boot Camp this morning. As I was stretching at the end of class one of the ladies asked me how much I had lost. I assumed she meant since I restarted boot camp in February. I told her I really hadn't lost anything. She thought I had and she felt like my mid section looked thinner. It's funny when she asked how much I lost I almost asked her what she meant. Like in the past few years or in the past few months? But I realized she probably just meant the past few months. I was able to squeeze in 45 minutes on the arc trainer after class.

I had a class this morning and a dinner this evening so I was short on time getting ready this morning, but needed an outfit I could wear to the dinner. I think I did pretty well for having no clue what I was going to wear about 5 min before I put it on. Dinner was awesome and I saw a mentor's wife. I hadn't seen her since Octoberish and she is such a nice lady. We chatted and she told me I looked great and it looked like I had lost weight. Ummm, not really. Still playing around with the same 10 lbs or so. Anyway, I like my outfit. Here it is

Long brown corduroy skirt. Pink and navy sweater. knee high brown boots. Off white tights.

Food for Thought

So if you are a regular reader you know that I have been struggling to lose the last few pounds. The last few pounds that only *I* have deemed necessary to lose. I have a perfect bill of health and I am very active, so why do I keep beating myself up over 10-15 lbs? Over the past few days I have realized I am harder on myself than I am on those I love the most. I have also realized that over the past 3 years my weight has fluctuated by about 10 lbs. That's about it. Even at the high end of the fluctuation I have maintained a 100+ lb weight loss. How awesome is that? I have kept 100 lbs off for good. I have read a few blogs about people who get sad when blogs "go black" and people have stopped posting. People wonder what happened and if they have gained the weight back. Well I am happy to report that this blog has not gone black, but incorporated more of my daily activities etc. I want to thank you the reader for sticking it out with me. I don't plan on going anywhere though, so stick around! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your support.

Maintenance isn't a bad thing at all!

Points for a Jello Shot?

Does anyone know the points for a Jello shot? I kid, I kid. Unless you really do... I consumed probably 10 or so of the color flavored shots yesterday at Steeplechase as well as eating and drinking a ridiculous amount. I mean what am 21? Maybe I am making up for all of the years I wasn't "wild" because of my weight?

This entire cooler was filled with Jello shots except for the 6 or so beers on the bottom. When we left there were only 4 left.


I am bloated beyond belief. I need to step it up this week (no, not the drinking!) but the exercise and eating right.
