Unexpected moments

This past Saturday morning something VERY unexpected happened!!  I woke up early in the morning with very sharp abdominal pain.  After being checked out at the ER they realized I had appendicitis and therefore would be having my appendix out later that day.  I am now home and recovering but quickly realizing that this is going to put a SCREECHING halt on my exercise plan.  So for now I am just in spectator mode as I watch Jon melt away and go for the gold in his workout competition. Hopefully as soon as I get the docs approval I will be back at it to try and hit my goal!!!

I'm in LOVE!!!

I don't think there is a flavor I've tried that I don't like... however, I have to say that I REALLY like the chicken ones with rice and the new pizzas and panini sandwiches are also a new fave of mine!!

Week #5 weigh in and Jon's 1st month results

To say that I have been struggling with my diet/work out regime would be putting it mildly!!  But even though I have been having a hard time, I have stuck to it and it is slowly but surely paying off.

My week #4 weigh in was not worth blogging (only a 1/2 lb weight loss)... but week #5 was better.

                                 Starting wt:  167lbs
                                 Current wt: 165 lbs
                                 Total weight loss: 2 lbs
                                 % of weight loss:  1.2%

So far in the last 5 weeks I have lost a total of 10.5 lbs.(5.7%)  I am not exactly where I wanted to be by now, but I am still proud of my accomplishments and I can feel the difference in my body so that is helping to keep me motivated! 

Jon has been a ROCKSTAR!!!!  So far he has lost a total of 28.2 lbs for a total percentage of 9.6%  These AMAZING results have put him in 1st place in his biggest loser competition at work.  He still has 2 months to go, but if he keeps it up he should lock it up and take this competition home!!!  I am SOOOOO proud of him and his hard work!!!!

Devastation + frustration = DESIRING to quit

We had our 3rd week weigh in this past Wednesday, and lets just say that it did NOT go the way that I was hoping.  (It's probably a good thing I waited a couple of days to post this because I was REALLY not in a good place after my weigh in)  Here's the numbers:

        Starting weight: 170lbs
        Current weight: 168lbs
        Weight loss:  2 lbs
         % of weight loss: 1.2%

Ok, now I know most people would ask why was I so upset.  I had a loss... I SHOULD be happy!!! However, I had had such an AMAZING week before the weigh in... I kept my diet and worked out 6/7 days so I REALLY wanted a bigger number and the fact that I didnt even meet my minimum goal of 2.5 lbs was EXTREMELY upsetting to me.  Thankfully, I have a husband supporting me through this, otherwise I probably would have completely spiraled back into old habits.  He got me up and working out on Thursday and even though it was a HORRIBLE experience on the bridge that day I did get up and I was moving and that is WAAAAY more than I used to do.... so I call it a VICTORY!!!  Here's hoping that next weeks results will be a little more promising but I am just really hoping for my min of 2.5 lbs!

We did it!!! We did it!!!

I HATE when my husband is right!!! He woke up this morning ALL motivated to go walk the bridge... And let's just say I did NOT feel the same way!!! But I had one of the BEST workouts I've had prolly in 3 years!! I ROCKED the bridge and the best part was I schooled Jon!! (Although he was pushing a stroller with at least 2 kids in it the whole time). So YAY for motivating husbands and I can NOT wait I weigh in this week!!
