Total Weight Loss

I am alive!

Hello all my blogger-licious friends! Sorry for my long absense but I was pretty sick. I felt horrible all last week and still have yet to get over the stuffy head and sore throat all together, but I am better. :)

The last 3 days I have been back to at least exercising. In fact both Sunday and Monday I managed to last on the elliptical 45 mins. I was very excited about that and can feel it in my legs. I have also gone from 3lb. weights up to 5 lbs. so I know that I am making progress.

I really do hate the new scale. It still shows my weight flucuating between 225 - 230 lbs. I think I am going to go weigh on my "usual" scale and see what it tells me. I really do hate changing scales, and especially in the middle of a challenge. Even if I have to trek across town to go weigh I will do it for more accuracy.

I will try and update more later. I do still have the 5K pictures to post. And I have to admit I had a total splurge on Saturday night. We got the UFC fight on pay-per-view and had some friends over. I almost never ever drink but I did that night. I ended up having 4 Smirnoff Cranberry & Lime drinks (kind of like wine coolers, and boy were they yummy), and I had 2 and half shots of Tequila Rose, and a shot of Johnnie Walker whiskey! I can not believe that I did not have a hangover or get an upset stomach. My tummy usually can not handle any alcohol and is one reason I quit drinking. I also ate buffalo chicken wings, some 5-layer bean dip, hummus, and baked lays chips, oh and a little Blue cheese dressing for the wings. I got stuffed but didn't munch at all after I ate. I figured I had not splurged hardly at all and that I was going to have one night. I know I drank probably at least 2 days worth of calories but man did I have a good time!

That night is what prompted me to go the 45 mins. on the elliptical Sunday. Then on Monday since I knew that I could do it, I did it again. I plan to make that my normal time from now on, until I up it to an hour.

Ok, I am really going now. Like I said will update more later.

Rock it, live it, own it!


  1. Glad to hear you r are feeling better. Changing scales usually leads to frustration it seems having read other bloggers who have not had good things to say about doing so. Looking forward to those 5k pics. Have a good day!

  2. I don't think I could ever change scales...I am so attached the the ones I have now! Glad to hear you are feeling better. Excellent work on your 45 min elliptical...That takes a ton of effort!

  3. yay for 45 on the elliptical!!!

    And i know what you mean with new scales, I had the same prob not long ago.

    And btw when you were sick I gave you an award.

  4. I was wondering what happened to you. This morning I thought of you and went for a walk.

  5. glad your feelin better!!!!hugs

  6. I am so glad you're feeling better. I was worried about you. Some times it's worth it to have a little fun even if it means extra calories!

  7. Glad to see your feeling better. Take care of yourself first and foremost and then excerising will improve in the end. I can't wait for summer to have a few drinks every now and again I am a Mikes raspberry lemonade kind of girl.
