First weigh in of the challenge

Burst Into Summer Challenge

Today is the first weigh in of the BURST INTO SUMMER Sisterhood weight loss challenge.  I am down 4 lbs in one week from 227.6 to 223.6...I am ecstatic and slightly suspicious.  It would be nice if dropping weight was always this easy. 

I spoke to a friend this morning and we are making tentative arrangements to go for a wog first think in the morning a couple times a week.  We need to solidify the plans I need to get back on track for my running.  I would like to do another 5K in August I think.  Additionally I need to do the 30 day shred at least 2 times a week and add some pilates in 2 times.  With riding that should round out my workouts!

Its been a very busy week as usual and HOT.  AC at my work has not been up to par.  That is my theory on why I have lost so much weight this week... my other theory/fear is that its all muscle because I have not been exercising.  We shall see how things go this week :)

Well I stepped on the scale this morning and apparently for no reason whatsoever dropped 3.2 lbs I feel stunned and vaguely guilty...also incredibly happy lol.  The stun and guilt is because I REALLY don't deserve it.  I have not worked out and I have not been being careful with what I all.  In fact I have indulged my chip and ice cream cravings this week which I almost never do.  Maybe its the heat.  I have not been eating A LOT its more that I have been making bad choices.  I am hoping this loss will give me the momentum to start tightening my belt.  

I really do want to get exercising again I feel better but for some reason just haven't had the will power to get to bed and get up in time to do so.  I run such a tight routine that sometimes its all I can do to get work, service, meals done there is nothing left for exercise.  At least that's what I have been telling myself.   A lot of people from the challenge are doing a boot camp but I will be honest.  I detest boot camp workouts every single moment of them.  I like my workout to be something I enjoy at least some.  I have the Jillian Michaels 30 days shred and some Pilates workouts I want to start and then maybe run a couple times a week with Milla.  She surely needs the exercise!  So anywho my start weight for the challenge was 227.6 and now I am at 224.4.  It makes my goal for 215 pretty darn reasonable at this point!

New Challenge

Burst Into Summer Challenge

I am starting a new challenge!  Time to try to lose another 10 lbs.  That will get me close to 215 that is the lowest I have been since I don't know maybe 1999?  It also puts me within 25lbs of my goal of 190!  If I hit 190 I should wear a size 12. Right now i am 16-18 but if I drop the additional 10 lbs I will be a 16!  woo hoo.  

Anyhow I don't have much else to report right now.  Just been working a lot.  I have a 6 day workweek this week on top of which I hitting a midnight showing of a movie and trying to wake up at 6 to work out beforehand so I am pretty beat.  I haven't been riding much the past couple weeks.  Time to get back on track with that as well.  Yawn back to work.  Sorry for such a boring post lol.
