Weigh In Wednesday

It seems as if these are all I do anymore, maybe I should call the blog "Weigh In Wednesday!"  Nah... 

This week I'd say I had another good one!  I stepped on the scale and was down...

3 lbs

Seriously, I'm amazed and how well I'm doing!  I take that back... I'm not amazed... I'm working hard for these pounds... Damn hard!  This 3 lbs brings me to a total weight loss of 13 pounds!  Just 2 more pounds and I'm half way to my total weight loss goal!  HOLLA!

I'm not the only one who's losing weight, so is Trainer Jeremy!  So far he's down...

14 lbs

He really dropped the weight quick when we first started!  I think he was a little scared to share his weight loss with me in the beginning... only because it was coming off so quickly for him and not so much for me!  But it didn't matter... I was (and still am) so proud of him! 

Right now we have two different goals when going into the gym.  Mine is to still lose weight and to slim down... To build long lean muscle not bulk up, and his is to actually bulk up now that he's slimmed down!  Boy has he slimmed down and I sure can tell he's building muscle!  I've made it a rule that he is to walk around the house without a shirt so that I can look at his yummy abs that have showed up (he's going to kill me for saying that)!

All kidding aside... I'm glad he's there pushing me and helping me to reach this goal that I thought was impossible! 

After all, how does the saying go...

the word itself says 'I'M POSSIBLE'!"

Weigh In....

... What day is it?  Oh yeah, it's Friday not Wednesday!  Opps!  Sorry guys, I totally skipped my Weigh In Wednesday post!  Is it just me or has this week gone by way too fast!  I can't believe it's already Friday!  I did weigh myself on Wednesday and was down...

1 pound

Not the greatest, but hey, a pound is a pound!  I'll take what I can get!  Also, with that 1 pound it brought me to the 10 pound lost mark!  Do you even know how long it's been since I've been in the double digit weight loss category?  No?  A long time!  I'm proud of myself and proud of how far I've come in a little over a month's time!

A month ago I looked in the mirror and thought to myself, "I wish I could be skinny!"  This morning as I was getting ready for the gym I looked in the mirror and thought, "Look at that, my wish is coming true!"  Although it's not my wish that has been granted... it's my hard work that has paid off! 

You can sit there and wish your life away, but unless you get out there and actually do it, it's just not going to happen for you!

Here's to a new week of making it happen!  Happy Friday!

Playlist Favorite:

This is seriously one of my favorite songs to run to right now!  The other day I asked Trainer Jeremy if he could hear me singing this while on the treadmill!  He runs without headphones and sometimes to help my breathing I'll quietly sing along with whatever song is playing... and while I love this song I don't think the person next to me would appreciate some of the lyrics being said out loud!  Thankfully, he said he couldn't hear me!

Weigh In Wednesday

This morning I woke up in a really, and I mean really, bad mood!  I stepped onto the elliptical and my shoe was sticky because I must have stepped in something and it was making this annoying sound and for some reason that sorta threw me over the edge... Poor Trainer Jeremy didn't know what hit him when out of the blue I looked at him threatened to take my shoe off and throw it through the effing wall!  Luckily, he's used to my temper tantrums moods and quickly checked me and all was well!

After an ass kicking by him and a round two work out with a friend who does a boot camp at the gym I'm feeling much better... Plus my shoe is no longer sticky so that makes me happy too, because after all, my happiness is what we all strive for, right? Yes?  No?  Ok, maybe not!

Now onto the good part... my weight loss!  This week I am down another...

2 lbs

Did you see my little ticker on the side over there?!?  I'm down a total of 9 pounds... HOLLA!  Last night I was telling Trainer Jeremy that for the first time, ever, I feel like I can really do this!  I feel like I can really reach this goal... and it feels GREAT!  In all honesty though I don't think I could do it without the help he's given me!  He's taught me so much about myself and I don't think he even knows it!  Anyway, enough mushy crap... How is everyone else doing?  January is gone and February is here!  Are we all still keeping with our goals or have we fallen off the "resolution" wagon?
