We Love Workouts!

I found this cute meme on Making Over Me and thought I’d participate.  Normally, today would be a gym day for me but my kids disrupted my schedule ~ overslept and missed the bus, so I had to modify today’s plans.  I briefly considered going for a run but then I remembered the snow/sleet/hail/slush/wth that we got yesterday afternoon and decided, instead, to take today as a rest day.

In the mean time, I am wearing my pedometer and my Therashoes, so even though today is not an “active” workout day, I’m still making sure I get in some fitness.  I’m also keeping up with my water intake and watching what I eat.

So what are your workout plans for today?  If you’d like to share, simply write a post or snap a picture of yourself working out and then go here and leave a link to your post.  Don’t forget to grab the badge and leave some comment love….


Weigh~In Wednesday

Now that my vision has returned, I am in the process of moving back into my normal routine.  Yay!  Yesterday I went to the gym and walked on the treadmill for 50 minutes.  Omg, did it feel good!  For a few minutes it felt like my heart was gonna pop through my chest but I pushed past it and managed to burn 352 calories and walk 3.64 miles.  I’m taking things slowly but I’m pretty happy with yesterday’s workout.

Honestly, though, I wasn’t expecting much by way of weight loss but I’m thrilled to report that the scale is on the downward slide!

Bust ~ 37 3/4 in
Arm ~ 12 1/2 in
Waist ~ 31 1/4 in
Abdomen ~ 37 in
Hips ~ 41 1/4 in
Thigh ~ 24 in

Weight ~ 157.9 lbs  (~1.9 lbs)

Go Team Off the Oreos!


I Can See!

I am so happy to report that my vision has returned! Let me tell you, being able to see out of one eye is a bear. I want to thank everyone for their constant prayers, thoughts and words of encouragement. Your support has been invaluable. I’d also like to thank God because without Him this wouldn’t have been possible.
