Weigh in and various other for the week
Monday, August 31, 2009
This weigh in I only lost 2 oz. WTF?!?! Like seriously, what is that? 2 ounces? I'm not really upset or anything, I just think its kinda funny to only lose 2 ounces. Its almost like the fat is taunting me, like its saying "here we will let go of two ounces but thats it. We are here for the long haul. TRY HARDER. " OK THEN I WILL! Suck it FAT!! lol
Ok so other than that, I am getting back into a work out routine. Me and about 5 girls from work are going to be getting together a few times a week after work to walk. One of these girls has lost over 80 lbs and is a huge inspiration to me. She says she is going to make us jog. Yeah ok, we will see about that. Luckily in this aspect peer pressure may not be a bad thing. I'm going to "walk it out" and walk it off!
My 9 year old has also managed to lose about a pound. Its easy for me to control what she eats at home but not at school. She gets free lunch so its just easier on me if she eats at school. She claims she does really well and I try my hardest to give her tips on eating well away from home and I know thats really all I can do. The thing I am struggling with is the exercise for her. Its been raining so much here so I can't make her get outside and play. We don't really have time during the week to workout together. By the time we get home and get done with dinner its 7 and then she has to shower and get ready for the next day. She already gets up at 6 in the morning to catch the bus so I can't get up earlier to workout. Any suggestions? I was thinking of taking her to my Zumba class with me on Thursdays. I'm off on Thursdays and I can pick her up straight from school and then go to Zumba and then still be able to pick up my younger two from daycare by 6. SHEESH I get exhausted just thinking about it. How I miss the days when I didn't have to work a real job and the kids could get off the bus each afternoon right in front of the house with a few hours before I even had to start dinner. SIGH!
