{August 3, 2012}   Week Two Results

Well, it has been two weeks since I made the decision to change my life for the better. I dropped another pound this week for a total of seven pounds all together. I was expecting more, but (and sorry if you’re a guy reading this) I just recently had a visit from “Aunt Flow”. From past experience, I tend to put on a few pounds of water weight when she visits so I am really hoping for a drop on the scale when she leaves. I have made my first check-in with my doctor for this coming Monday so it would be nice to show even more of a loss. I know I shouldn’t be hummed about the one pound loss, since it’s better than nothing, but I really, REALLY want to be below 360. It’s been so long since I have…

This week has been harder because I have been craving food I can’t have, but it feels good to say I have NOT given in! Today, we took my mom to Olive Garden for her birthday and I faced my first out to eat /eating healthy challenge. I picked a salad and a meal of grilled chicken breast with broccoli and asparagus. It was good and I feel it fit my new healthier way of eating. It’s nice to know I CAN still eat out with people without feeling guilty!

For exercise, I have been doing Zumba on the Wii ..20 minute beginner classes and I can tell I am getting a little better each time. I think I am going to also research dance/aerobics videos on Netflix Instant Watch. I think having a lot of variety will keep me from getting bored and I definitely love dancing. It’s just so much fun and I forgot I am exercising!

Well…this is the update for me…I will let you know how next week goes next Friday! 🙂



As always, you may answer these questions in your own post or in the comments section!

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. What is a must in a hotel room? Besides a comfortable bed and working toilet/shower, clean room, all the BASICS you expect….A good air conditioner if it’s summer in Texas…I don’t ask for too much…

2. Which Olympic event would you be best at? LOL…are you kidding me? It would be easier to say which ones I would be horrible at….I am so not athletic at ALL!
3. What’s your stance on the Chick-fil-A subject? Ugh for whoever put this question in here…I feel like this is all I have heard lately…I will make this short and sweet, but I COULD by all means say a ton here.
I respect people’s opinions for and against gay marriage because it’s your right…I don’t have a problem with whoever wants to marry getting married because it doesn’t personally affect me in anyway. I have family and friends on both sides of the issue and I love them all not only because I believe God told us to love EVERYONE but also I believe it’s the right thing to do regardless.
4. One thing you said you’d never do as a parent, but totally have. Not applicable
5. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever found at a yard sale? I don’t really know….I think it’s weird to see used underwear at yard sale….I know you could probably wash them really well but I just personally think underwear should be bought new….at the same time, I realize some people might not be able to even afford that :(…If you can, though…I say buy new

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
