emoticonWorkout Review:
It's officially June 27th and I'm 26 for 27 on my workouts. Last weekend was crazy so I spent Sunday doing simply an easy walk. (Which I'm really proud I did at all because I was *so* tired!) Monday I went swimming in the bacteria-filled lake. This new situation at the park nearby is going to kill my swimming/water aerobics on the weekends. Will have to find somewhere else to go. Then on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday I did Zumba. I'm so proud that I did 3 days in a row (and it's probably why I was so tired yesterday). I walked during most of my lunches this week, even the day it was too hot I went to the grocery store and walked around the whole time looking for new food. Yesterday didn't go so great (see my blog from yesterday) so instead of official workouts, I pushed myself to just stand as much as possible...to help out at the bonfire wherever I could. I cleaned a little bit as well. So I don't have official workout time, but I kept active.

emoticonFood review
I've eaten pretty well all week. I haven't logged everything, but I've been a good girl. *pats herself on her head* There were plenty of awful tempting things at the bonfire/BBQ last night, but instead I ate some chicken, some vegetarian baked beans, two bites of potato salad, and some of my reduced-fat cheesy potatoes. I did have a beer and a half, but something in the beer was making my tummy hurt, so I kept to tea most of the night, which my friend made with splenda and decaf tea.

emoticonWhat I learned this week.
I feel amazing this week for several reasons. I mean, there is the whole New York thing, but really because I feel like I've set a spark in my friend. She thinks about what she's eating now. She's even talking about going to Zumba with me on Wednesday, her and her husband. This is not the type of person who I ever thought would want to workout, but she's thinking about it.

Plus - Yesterday I went shopping at Fashion Bug. I fit into a size 28 blazer...actually I fit into a size 26 blazer, but I wasn't quite comfortable with the fit...a little TOO tight. I bought one size 28 blazer from the clearance section for 18 bucks, but I don't think it's quite right for NYC. I'm going to order a blazer online for the interview. I did buy a shirt. It's black and white patterned and sleeveless, but still conservative. I think it will be cool until I put the blazer on before I walk in the building. Still in size 30 pants, which drives me crazy. While most of you are working on getting into regular sizes so you can shop at any store, I'm working on getting to the sizes I can buy at the big-girl stores. But the top half is getting smaller. The size 22/24 tank I got a couple weeks ago? I wore it last night...it's too big. I have to get a smaller one (and then my friend wants this one! *lol* She called dibs last night.) Hoping the bottom half catches up soon...my tight shorts are getting a little loose...so maybe soon. I did buy smaller bras yesterday...the others were hurting because they were so loose.

That being said - a dude checked me out last night at the bonfire. I noticed. *lol* Hubs noticed as well! *lmao*


From the bonfire last night.

Weight loss goal for next week: 381

I was going to start 30-Day Shred in July, but I don't think my body is ready for that. Going to get another DVD instead...maybe one of the Biggest Loser ones. I could logically be at 366 before the end of August...which is that first century mark from my highest weight. Might get a tatt of a C when I get there....I could end up with 3 Cs after I hit my final weight goal...remind me of what I've done.

So in July I will work on training like crazy for the Charleston Distance Run in September. I'd love to be able to walk the 10K on September 4th. I missed out on a lot of my training this week, so I need to get right back on the horse this week. No excuses.

    Way to go! You are really doing so well! I know exactly what you mean about just trying to fit into the big girl clothes in stores when everyone else is trying to get into regular stores. To be able to actually try something on and knowing something in the store will definitely fit will be awesome! Thanks for sharing that information. Have a great week and bowl em over in NYC!

    Just keep working hard and you know you'll have a lot more clothing options available to you soon! And someday even be down to the 16-18's that you can find in some "regular" stores! You're having an awesome month and I'm sure you'll look fabulous at your interview!

    You're rockin it and a true testament to the fact that one bad day is nothing compared to 6 other good ones!!!

    I went to Catherine's yesterday and was mostly disappointed in what I could find and what "fit". Though, I was kinda happy I could fit into the 30/32 shirts, as opposed to the next size up. Pants wise I found nada.

    You'll knock 'em dead in NYC!!!

    I'm glad that both you and RAVENSONG seem to be doing much better today! 3 lbs in one week! There's your 5 hr hike from last weekend (it just needed the time to process). 2 lbs ahead of schedule and you are looking awesome!

    YA!

    Of COURSE he checked you out!!! You're GORGEOUS!! What size pants will get you into the plus size store? I can't wait til you reach it!!!!!!!!!!! I remember when you broke the 400 lb mark (300's, here you came!!), and now you're almost 20 lbs down from THAT! INCREDIBLE. I see you made up your lb from last week (yay!!!!!!!!!!!!), and the awesome 200's will be here before you know it!!!!!!! In FACT, they'll be here around my 28th birthday if you drop 2 lbs a week til then (WHICH YOU WILL!!!!!!!!!!!!). I can't wait to celebrate with you!!!!!!! And then by Christmas time next year, you will be super skinny at the lower 200s...am I getting ahead of myself?? I'm inappropriately excited for you hahaha. Think of all those adorable Christmas sweaters... ;)

    You're doing amazing, girl! And someday I know you will be RUNNING a 10K. Mark my words!

    Congrats on the 3 pound loss this week and best of luck on your NYC interview!

    RE: 30 day shred. It's tough, but there are modified moves for bigger girls. Level 1 I think is doable for people of all fitness levels. And hey, even if you can't do everything, you're working up a sweat, right?
