Friday Weigh-In

Happy Olympics Opening Ceremony Friday! I can't even explain how excited I am to watch. You probably don't know this, but I am an Olympics fanatic and the Winter Games are my absolute favorite. While I love just about all the events, I'm most impressed by long track speed skating. The strength and endurance required for that sport is outrageous. I also can't wait to root for Johnny Weir and his "sparkly onesies" as he goes for the gold in Men's Figure Skating. Yay!

I hit a milestone today, broke the 100 pound mark. I weighed-in at 176.5, for a loss of 1.5 pounds for the week and 100.5 pounds overall. I'm more than half way through Stage 1 of New Rules. I just finished A6 and increased my seated row weight to 156 pounds on my last set. I also moved to the floor for my push ups. I don't get as low as I should, but I completed all three sets of 10 going low as I could. I need to buy new jeans before my Boston trip as I've already outgrown (ingrown?) the ones I bought at the start of the fall/winter season. The money I save on junk food is better spent at the clothing stores, anyway.

I'm working Saturday and Sunday, so I'll be tucked away passing out hugs and medicine to my elderly Valentines. What are your plans for the weekend? If you're looking for a low-impact indulgence for Valentine's Day, consider making some chocolate dipped strawberries. Wash and pat dry fresh strawberries, dip them in melted dark chocolate and place on wax paper to cool. At about 50 calories each, it's an easy yet decadent treat.

And lastly, set your DVRs for the Dr. Oz show on Tuesday February 16th. It's a special show about people who have achieved and maintained 100 or more pound weight loss. Lori from Finding Radiance got to take part in the show, so be sure to watch!

Have a fantastic day and a great, safe weekend!
