Fit Friday

Starting weight: 158

Current weight: 156.2

Lbs lost: 1.8

Lbs to go: 16.2

Since my starting weight, I did have surgery, which put a little chink in my getting back in shape. I have increased my working out from not a damn thing to these in the last three weeks:

2 runs outdoors for 5 miles +32 lunges

2 30 minute elliptical session + abs

1 random workout of jumping jacks, push ups, burpees and planks

That's it! I need to step it up guys. I got up twice at 5:30 a.m. and worked out and I was so proud of myself. I do my long runs on weekends and Hubby hangs with the twins. My alarm goes off every morning at 5:30 to work out and I am so far 2 for 10 on that, ha!

Biggest setback: First was my surgery, obviously. Second was an emotional disruption that led to foul eating. I learned my lesson this week, DO NOT EVER TELL THE UNIVERSE TO BRING IT ON! It's been brought and I am waving my white flag! Mercy, please, I can't take much more yo! I apologize. Are we okay now? I'm sorry Universe. Can I have a break?!?!?! Anyway . . . . my emotional problem led to the eating of 4 donuts and 4 oatmeal pies. Yeah, the fact that I didn't gain 5 lbs is a small miracle. The fact that I weighed .2 lbs less the day after this binge and hubby gave me a high five for finding success on the oatmeal pie diet makes me laugh! But it's still bad and I clearly need to find a better way to deal with my emotions (that statement was the duh of the century, wasn't it?).

Best part: Although I am not just shedding weight like gangbusters, I feel like I must be toning up a little because my fat pants are now so baggy that I can wear them like sweats instead of jeans, no need for using the button or zipper!

My main goal is to do my run this weekend, workout twice during the week, and be a much better eater. How did you do this week?


  1. Way to go girl! Keep it up. I am working out alongside you! Here's to being sexy beasts in 2012: )

  2. 2/10 days of getting up at 5:30 AM is pretty darn good in my book. I would not do it. I'm lucky in that I have super long(unpaid) lunch breaks this year and I can get to the gym then...otherwise I probably would not go.


Thanks for stopping by! Sorry, no anonymous comments, if you can't put your name on it it's just no fun!
