Last Chance Workout, Yummy Food, and a glimpse of the old me

Today is week 2 weigh in...and...I' last week. But I know that week 2 is always a challenge so I'm chocking it up to just that and determined to push through.

I also think I have a bi-polar scale that I cannot trust. I can weigh myself w/ all my clothes on and weigh one thing. Then go to the bathroom and take my clothes off and weigh myself again and gain 2 pounds. WTH!?!? And the opposite can happen. I can lose 2 pounds but adding my clothes and walking from one room to the next. Whatever! I don't want to be dependant on the scale or be defined by a number. I will go by what my clothes feel like and look at myself in pictures and know that I'm losing weight. However, because I'm part of this challenge I would hate to not realize I've gained a pound instead of losing. But for now I will rely on the scale they use to weigh me weekly.

This week I have enjoyed some yummy foods. My favorite snack of the week is Kettle Popcorn sprinkled w/ cinnamon and a tbs. of dark choc. chips. Mmmmmmm!!!!! Just enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. And my favorite meal I made was shrimp and asparagus on the grill sprinkled w/ EVOO and Cavendar's seasoning. I was lacking in the H20 department so that is one goal I have for next week.

My workouts have been pretty good. A little hard to get in because of baseball, but when I did workout of took full advantage of my time. Monday I had to miss Zumba and it looks like tonight I will have to miss again. I'm really bummed about that, but to make up for it we've been dancing to some great old throwback jams...a little Brandy, SWV, Salt N Pepa, and a little Rump Shaker. Funny story - the other night I was cooking dinner and jamming out to the cool OnDemand throwback station and Rump Shaker came on. I was stirring and spinning and singing "All I wanna do a zooma zoom zoom zoom in a boom boom. Just shake yer rump." My husband looked at me as if I was some alien he'd never seen and said "Who are you? And what have you done with my country singing wife?" If he only knew me before...ha..he probably would have had no interest.

On a super good note my size 6 jeans are beginning to feel a bit loose! And the other day I had on my size 8's that I was so excited to buy at Christmas...and I had to fold the waist over just to keep them on. My husband laughed and said "Honey you are allowed to go get new jeans you know." I told him I'm waiting so I can get some I'm sure will last for a while:)

Today last chance workout is consisting of scrubbing bathrooms, scrubbing the floors by hand and cleaning baseboards, laundry, running up and downstairs since my laundry room is upstairs, and chasing kids around the backyard (oh and shoveling dog poo so we don't step in it). And trying to get it all done during nap off I go.

Hope ya'll are having a good week!
