OH NO....

Guess what? You won't believe this....

I'm pregnant!

Okay, did that get your attention?!?! If it did then show me some love and leave me a comment!

And no, I am not pregnant. At least I don't think I am. I better not be. That's the last thing I want right now.

I am here to report that I have worked out FIVE DAYS IN A ROW. Yes, that's right--5!!! And that's 2 work outs on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday and today I strapped Izaac into the baby carrier and walked with him for 30 minutes. Now THAT is a work out!!! It's insanely hard with him strapped on the front and I am sweating when I am done. I have been getting up at (gasp!) 5 in the morning, getting on the elliptical for 15 minutes and then hitting the shower. It's amazing how good I feel the rest of the day. Next week, I will up the time to 17 minutes, then 20 minutes the week after. I will not let more than 2 days go by without exercise. I want to see 166 by the end of April--if not less than that. I was at 174.7 at my WI this week. I have a pair of Gap Long and Lean jeans that I LOVE. They are a size 12 and I know that is "vanity" sizing but I don't care. I love them and the way they look on me. I put them on today and they fit and I could get them zipped but the muffin top was still a little much for me to be comfortable. I am going to try them on again next Friday and see where they are. I am going to keep trying them on every week until they fit. And then when they do, you are going to hear me scream with excitement no matter where you live!

My trainer gave me a piece of motivation (or maybe I should say he gave me a can of whoop ass) a few weeks ago. If I go in to him and I do NOT lose weight...I can stay the same and I can lose .1, but I can't gain--if I do, I have to do the leg press TWICE! At the beginning of my work out and then again at the end like we always do. Let me just say how much I HATE the leg press--HATE it!!! Loathe it! It's my least favorite exercise but, according to my trainer (Kyle), it's one of the most important exercises there. But it still sucks. No matter how good it is for you. I don't care. This week, I barely made it. I lost .2 on his scales. This goes on until I hit the 160's on his scale. I go by my scales for my weekly weigh ins. It doesn't matter as long as I am consistent.

I didn't make it here at night this week b/c I went to bed so early. But I did write everything down that I ate this week. I have to give my journal's to Kyle every week when I see him. He looks over them and tells me where I need to improve. I have cut back my Starbuck's habit. I went there today for the first time in over 2 weeks. I am really trying to limit my trips there to no more than once a week. I feel as if I have a good plan and things seem to be going well. I WILL DO THIS!!!!!

I am signing off tonight. Have a wonderful OP weekend!!!

Amanda I am glad to see that one of us has been doing good. Please send that can of "whoop ass" to me! :)
I have not been blogging mainly because I have been busy and my diet has been sucking! I am up aout 10 pounds and honestly I have beat myself up over it so much. I refuse to let it get completely out of control so I am back on the wagon and I think I am going to count points until I get my portions under control and I start eating better food choices!
Just wanted to say hi and hope all is well at your house!!

You have a truly sick sense of humour. Sheesh. Way to go on the exercise front - I'm gonna need to keep reading you for motivation here. Hugs to those boys.

It sounds like you are doing things right...I am sure the scales will be showing it to you!
Keep us posted!

Amanda, I can't figure out how to leave a comment on your newer posts. I'm an idiot. Take care and have fun with WW. Great losses!!
