This week has been *insane* – to say the least. My older daughter’s birthday is today. We had her party yesterday. I had 60 RSVPs, so I was running around frantically baking cake, icing cake, gathering games, making prize baggies, stuffing the pinata, and more. Of course, only about a third of those RSVPs showed up. If only I had known…my life could have been so much more calm this week.
Anyway…I had a tiny piece of cake yesterday. That was the first time cake has passed my lips in about three months. It was alright, but I certainly did not love it as much as I did three (or four or five) months ago. Strange thing how that happens. I suppose that shows lifestyle change has been successful. Yeah me!
So, on to my weigh in. I have been anticipating this morning’s weigh in all week because this is usually the time when I start to notice the weight creeping back up, but not today. I weighed in at 276.6! That is exactly three pounds down from last week. My total loss is 35.4 pounds in 12 weeks. Yeah me!
I am really excited, and I cannot wait to hit the gym tomorrow! I have been working on some new machines, which I really love. I have felt sore muscles a few times this week, which always makes me feel good. Tomorrow is legs and abs (and, of course, cardio). I think I am going to add some time to my cardio routine, though. I was pretty consistent for a couple weeks on the elliptical (2.25 miles in 30 minutes). This past week, though, I have noticed my distance climbing (2.27, 2.31, and 2.41 miles in 30 minutes). My goal is to add five minutes this week.
How did you wrap up your week? What are you looking forward to this week?
