its Hump Daaaaay

Guess what day it is???


and that also means...

Weigh In Wedneday

188.4.  Up .2 since last week.

I'm actually not that upset since T.O.M. was here and this is my normal pattern I suppose.  Not sure if it is even feasible to lose 4 pounds by November 7th but I am gonna give it a shot.  (Nov. 7th is my 1 year lifestyle change/diet/exercise beastmode anniversary)

In other news, Chris and I went and rented the ball machine at the Y last night.  We ended up hitting around for about an hour and a half.  Before that, I had gone to my local Y and did 35 minutes on the elliptical and 20 minutes of weights.  Needless to say, by the time I got home I racked out.  I was exhausted but managed to get the season premiere of The Biggest Loser watched before I fell asleep.  I think this season is going to be great!  I know what they do isn't practical (38 pound loss in a week?!) but I love the motivation! 

Here's a couple of pics from yesterday:








Did you watch The Biggest Loser last night?  How do you think this season is going to go?  Who is your favorite trainer?

  5. It's feasible to lose 4 lbs. I've done it several times since starting my journey. I don't know what I do differently those weeks to warrant that much of a loss LOL.

  6. Hey! Jumping over here - thanks for commenting on my blog! You look like you have done amazing in your journey so far! Congrats to you & I agree w/ the above - you can totally hit that 4 lbs!!

  7. You can hit that 4lb mark no problem! Just dig deep and push for it. Then whether you get there or not, you'll have no regrets.

    I want to train with Bob sooooo bad! I think he and I would be best friends and I'm ok with it. I haven't watched the premiere yet but am going to try soon. I haven't watched on a regular basis for a few years, but I'm going to attempt it this year.

  8. I agree with everyone else.... I think 4 pounds is totally doable. But if not- that's okay to. This isn't a sprint race it's a marathon. Slow and Steady!

    I did watch Biggest Looser last night too. It felt kind of good to sit down and watch it knowing I was under my calorie goal for the day and had spent a few minutes working out before hand. You know previously I was the girl sitting on the couch eating ice cream and watching the show...how ironic, i know...lol

    1. I was that girl too Brandy! I would watch that show and just wish that I could be there so badly (all the while eating whatever was in front of me...). I'm so grateful that I woke up and realized that no one was going to change for me! I had to do it myself!

  9. Girly, you definitely got those 4 pounds! You are kicking booty with the exercising.

    I love The Biggest Loser. I know that it's extreme, but I love seeing the weekly transformations. It keeps me motivated, for sure. I think I would want Bob. He seems nice, but he kicks butt. I have one of his at-home workout DVD's, and it's NO JOKE! Like, I thought the Shred was hard... ha! Anyway, can't wait to watch this season.

  11. I love the Biggest Loser, but I haven't watched this season's premiere (did I even spell that right?) yet. I love Bob, Jillian and Dolvet (ugh I'm just too lazy to google the spelling tonight!) all for different reasons. If I got to pick one for my personal trainer, it would probably be Bob!

  12. I can so see you hitting your goal by November! You got this!

    I watch BL last night-- I got to say that I love Jillian-- I know she is a bit much but I like a beast in the gym :)

    1. Yea, same. Except well, I used to eat ANYTHING in front of the tv. Especially potato chips! I'm interested to see how she does as well. And the swimmer!

  15. Renting a ball machine would be so much fun!! I have a cheapie tennis racket and my friend and I had taken a beginner lesson but then she moved so there went my tennis buddy!

    1. Yea, we've been having a lot of fun doing that and it helps so much now that we are just learning proper form and all that stuff. Maybe you can find someone else local who is playing. Check out some tennis lessons and maybe you can find someone again! If I were closer, I'd totally practice with you!

  16. Love the idea of renting a ball machine. I haven't played tennis in a few years (and I wasn't very good:-) but I'm always looking for fun ways to get exercise.

  17. Yowza! Exercise beastmode is right! TOM is such a PITA. Not a bad (slight) gain at all though!
