Bad Food Day

I had a crappy eating day yesterday, from mac and cheese to pizza and strawberry shortcake to top it all off.  Wow I can't believe how much it all adds up.  Oh not to mention some cherry coke with the popcorn.  Oh well I know we all have those days, good thing is I only did 2 little pieces of pizza and not a whole lot of mac and cheese.  Today is a new day to start again.  Going to start off with a healthy breakfast and go from there.  I just wish it was nice out, but it is rainy, windy and cold.  Oh well, might see if I can find somebody to watch my munchkins for a couple hrs a day so I can hit the gym up.  Hope everyone has a great day!!

So since we have received our house hold goods, I had found my Heart rate monitor, but it has since gone MIA...grrrrr.  So now I am debating on ordering a new one, (I know as soon as I do I will find my other one).

I have decided I am only going to do measurements once a month instead of weekly.  Still debating on if I want to weigh myself weekly or monthly, not sure yet.

I do know next week I am going to hopefully go get the kids a wagon (one with seat belts so my son doesn't try to fall out) and start taking them on walks at least twice a day.  On top of that do my zumba!  Hope everyone has a wonderful productive day!

So to add to this instead of making a new entry.  Did about a total of 30 min of Zumba.  It is going to take a couple of days to get back into the swing of things.  For my recovery drink I tried something different, but it tastes like it is missing something.

What I did was a scoop of french vanilla whey protein, added 4 strawberries and 1 cup of coconut milk.  blended together and drink.   I think I need to get some ice.  I have been to the store 3 times this week and each and every time I forget!

Ok, so I think my scale lied to me yesterday, because today it says 182!!!!  Holy moly batman, I think I might be losing a lot of the water weight.  Not to mention I am more active here, granted I have not been doing a whole lot of zumba, but between chasing kids and dogs, that in itself is a workout.  Now for the measurements.  I went down in everything except for my hips.  I am having some issues with my right hip, not sure if it is a little swollen or what, but am happy with the rest.

Today                           Beginning                     Total Loss

Neck:  13.5                  14.5                             1 in
Waist:  35                    36.25                           1.25 in
Hips:  46.5                   47.25                            0.75 in
Thigh:  24.5                  28.25                            3.75 in

I think I probably messed up on some of the previous measurements but this is not bad! I did some research on how to properly measure and these make more sense!

Wow so I can now say I am officially out of the 190's!!!!!  I weighed myself as promised this morning and am at 187!!  Now just need to find measuring tape...hmmmm that is a workout all on its own.  Just might run up to store and get another one.  Since it is once again another crappy and rainy day, going to do me a zumba during nap time!  Going to go check laundry! Have a great day everyone!

Getting Settled In

I know it has been forever since I have done an update.  We finally got moved out of Alaska, and the house is for the most part unpacked.  Still trying to find my PS3 zumba, grrrrr.  Good news is I have my zumba DVD's going to get started on those tomorrow.  I honestly have no idea what I weigh and to tell you the truth am a little scared to jump on the scale.  Alas I will do measurements and weigh myself tomorrow.
