I’m baaaaaaaaaaack.

May 12, 2010

That’s right.  I’m back.  Not only to my blog, but to Insanity! 

Our Recovery Week became a Recovery Three Weeks, and we just started back.  I think both of us thought the Month 2 stuff was a bit much, so we’ve gone back to Month 1.  We did it on Monday, and plan to do it again tonight.  I also ran both days.  Monday was a kick ass speed day.  I did ladders, starting out at my normal pace (5.4) and I increased it .1 mph every 30 seconds, until I couldn’t hang on anymore.  Then I jogged for 5 minutes, then I did it again.  Woohoo!  My friend is helping me out with some speed workouts, and this was his suggestion.  He thinks I already have it in me to run much faster, and he is just helping me find my speed and get it out there. 

We’ll see.  😀 

The fun news in my life:  We leave for Cozumel on Monday!  We’ll be there for five days, and I CANNOT WAIT.  I’m so frickin stoked it’s not even funny.  We went shopping for summer clothes and bathing suits this weekend, since all of our stuff is too big.  DH went down 2 full pant sizes, that fucker.  I only went down 1 size.  (I’m kidding, I’m so proud of him!)  I got the FUNNEST (yes, that is a word) dresses to wear.  I wanted to wear one of them to work this week, but it’s fucking snowing here.  On May 12th.  Lovely.  This only makes me look forward to my beach vacation even more. 

I’m down a bit more from the last time I posted (I think).  I’ve lost about 12 lbs since January, which I know isn’t exactly blazing fast, but it’s movement in the right direction, so I’ll take it. 

Have you all been watching Biggest Loser?  I watched the makeover show last night (thank God for DVR) and HOLEE SHITBALLS, those folks look great.  It’s amazing.  It was a good reminder to myself of what it felt like to be able to shop in a regular store (thanks, but no thanks Lane Bryant, I hope to never need you again), and prompted me to look at my before pics (from YEARS ago, before I dropped 70 lbs, I’m now working on another 20 or so).  Big difference.  I don’t even remember what it felt like to be that big.  And sometimes I don’t think I look any different, because from my perspective, I was just me the entire time.  Lately people have been saying things like “Oh, your hair is getting longer!” or “You look great!” or “Have you lost weight?” or “Is that a new dress?” to me.  Some of those are directly addressing the fact that I look smaller, and the others are (in my experience) people’s way of saying they have noticed something different, but they are not sure what it is.  Regardless, it’s nice to hear.


Drumroll… Did I lose?

April 7, 2010

Hells yeah, baby.  2.4 muthertruckin pounds.  BOOYA. 

Today, I got up and ran 4 miles before work (thanks to my imaginary buddies for insuring that I made it out of bed).  Then tonight, we did our Insanity workout.  Me tired. 

Dinner is Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup.  Mmmm.  We are eating shortly.  I’m frickin starving right now.  I’m watching Biggest Loser, too.  I know a lot of people hate Melissa, but I can completely 100% relate to her competitive drive.  I’ve got it.  And if I were on that show (let’s hope I never get back to a place where they’d take me) my bitchy competitive side would come SCREAMING OUT.  People would hate me if I were on that show.  😀 

I’m getting such a kick out of the little game going on tonight.  Awesome.  I’m such a bitch.  😀

Gaining weight sucks the big one

January 13, 2010

Big shocker there, huh?  As my DH likes to say “LDO.”  (that is apparently internet speak for Like, duh, obviously.)

Goddammit.  I am getting close to being 200 lbs again.  This CANNOT be happening.  I’m not there yet, but fuckin’ A, if I don’t fix this, I will be.  I’m PISSED. 

So, on a “why” note, I didn’t run at all last week.  But I did 3.5 hours of Spinning.  And just a little upper body workout.  I must do more weight workouts.  My friend Novia is looking at one of those cool TRX things to do strength training, and I’m intrigued myself.  It looks like something that would be fun, which might make me actually want to strength train.  As it is now, I don’t really care for it, even tho I know, without a doubt, that it would change my body. So why am I not lifting RIGHT NOW, right?  I am, however, watching Biggest Loser on tv 😀  They are lifting lots of weights, so maybe on commercial I’ll go get mine from the basement.  Novia, you better give me a review on the TRX.  Stat!

A’ight.  I’m off to do some pushups and abs while I watch the BL.
