Friday Weigh-In

I'm home from my final workout with Blake until after vacation. He pushed me so hard that my severe annoyance with him coupled with time of month bitch pants hormones that the endorphins got scared and ran away. I'm hoping they come out in the shower because I don't know if I'll be able to lift my arms to wash my hair. I admit to being rather thrilled that I don't have to look at the inside of that gym for two whole weeks.

It's been a good week in the food and workout departments and my body showed its appreciation with a weigh-in of 195.5. This gives me a 4 pound buffer over two weeks. Not that I want to gain 4 pounds while away, of course. It's just that eating in restaurants, no matter how you order, is always going to have more fat and sodium that what I'd cook with here at home. Not to mention the fact that I'm hankering for a really good burger with ketchup and extra pickles, I can't remember the last time I had one. I've asked Rob to put the bathroom scale in the truck when he comes down to meet me after the first week. I think weighing in after the first week will give me a good idea of how I'm doing and keep me from going overboard on holiday food.

This is my last post until I get back, unless I get somewhere with wi-fi when Rob brings the laptop. I thank each and every one of you for taking time to follow along with me on my journey. I hope you all stay safe and have a joyous couple of weeks!

Andra, you just lost 81 1/2pounds...what are you going to do now?

I'M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!

  4. Wow. Congrats, Andra, on a very successful loss week!!! I'm envious on so many levels...still not where I want to be weight-wise, and definitely not where I want to be physically (I'm sitting here at a desk, when I'D RATHER BE AT MAGIC KINGDOM, EATING A DOLE WHIP!!!) Have a fab time with Lys. Hug her and those boys for me!
