Throw Away The Scale…
Lots of happenings over the last weekish. I was pretty discouraged that the scale really hadn’t moved in almost a month just feeling kinda bla. So this week I really stepped up the cardio, and I’ve lost about 2 pounds, I’m excited, but when I took this picture before my date last night, I was once again reminded that I need to just ignore the scale…
This is about a one month difference. Exact same outfit.. Even down to the chosen underwear.. Different shoes because I chose to wear cowboy boots instead of my knee highs. I am absolutely amazed at how much my waist has come in, and I can even see a difference in my arms and my legs. This next photo is from December until yesterday. In December I couldn’t even get the skirt on much less button it.
The pants are 3 sizes larger than the skirt to put that into some perspective.
Anyways, I’ve been spending a lot of time at the pool with the kiddos because school is out now, which is why I look like a lobster. I’m great at applying sunblock to the kids.. Not so much to myself apparently. I think we spent almost 5 hours at the pool yesterday. After the pool, I went on to go to dinner with the really great guy that lives a little bit away from here. Unless something changes, he is driving up on Sunday and we are going to go to a baseball game. I’m excited. I love going to sporting events, and I’m excited to get to know him better.
I’ve been hitting the gym hard. I am up over body weight on several of my exercises and still increasing the weight and making major gains. I went to the gym today despite the sun burn, probably not my smartest idea ever, but I pushed through and put in two hours. One hour being weights, then a 30 minute weight/cardio circuit, 15 on the elliptical, and another 15 warming up/cooling down.
I’m ending this with some random pics including some pool pics!
