Day 71 - Monday Weigh-In Week #10

Song of the day:  The Lonely Island ft. Akon - I Just Had Sex   ...this song randomly played on my ipod during a workout, and it's great to run to!  It's now my most played song, lol.

Side note:  It's really funny how much your parents still affect you even when you're an adult.  I'm 24, married, and we have a kid, and I'm still squeamish about my dad reading that I'm listening to a song called, 'I just had sex.'  Lol :)

I had a really good workout last night.  I did a ton of strength training then did the Week 1 Workout 3 of the c25k training program.  It's great because it gives me more of a structured workout, instead of me deciding what I'm going to do when I turn on the treadmill.  Tomorrow I start "week 2" of the program.  So instead of running for 60 seconds then briskly walking for 90 seconds, I'm going to run for 90 seconds and briskly walk for 2 minutes.  That seems like kind of a long time to walk, but I guess they know what they're talking about!  I haven't had any lasting issues with shin splints, but I think taking a day off from running will help keep them away.

Yesterday we dropped off a ton of stuff at Goodwill then did some shopping to replace the stuff we just got rid of.  Lol, not really... but kinda.  Since we were out at kind of a weird time, and we had a late breakfast, we decided to stop at Arby's for a late lunch.  I got the chicken pecan salad sandwich meal.  Yes, I had the small curly fries and a small diet doctor pepper.  And I don't feel bad about that at all because I had a sensible breakfast and had planned a sensible dinner (shrimp stir-fry).  When we got home I went to the computer to enter my food and -WHAT!!!?!?!?!??  My seemingly harmless and what I thought was healthy meal was 1200 calories!!  And I got diet soda!  No wonder I wasn't hungry for dinner!  The low end of my calorie range is 1200, and I had that in one meal!  Thankfully I stayed under my top end of 1550, but jeeze!  That should come with a warning label.  WARNING: You may thing you're being healthy, but you're actually eating 1200 calories and 57 grams of fat (which is 1 over my range).  In one meal!!  I would have been better off going with a small roast beef sandwich!  Ugh, but at least I know now - and so do all of you.  Stay away from the pecan chicken!

I did pick up a fiber and calcium supplement to go along with my women's one a day multivitamin.  No matter what I ea,t I tend to not get enough of either.  So hopefully they help... help do whatever they're supposed to do, I guess... :)

Today is supposed to reach the 40's so we may go for a walk depending on the wind.  It's terribly windy here.  But Charlie Shortino (NBC's local weather guy) is saying we may even hit 60 later this week!  I can't wait!  Ok, all right.  I guess it's time...

1/3/11 - 232.6 lbs

Weight loss for Week Ten: 1.6 lbs
Weight loss Total: 27.2 lbs

*Weight loss since my heaviest (5/22/10 - 264 lbs): 58.6 lbs 

*Granted I was 9+ months pregnant at my heaviest, but Elliot only weighed 10 lbs, so I'm going to track that as well.  :)

I guess that's all I can really expect from my last ditch effort this weekend, lol.  But like I've said before, weight loss is weight loss, and I can be happy with that!  Could I possibly be winning??  Oh, Charlie Sheen.  Lol.  Here's to this next week!


  1. Hmmmmm. I'm squeamish about reading that you just listened to a song called, "I just had sex."

  2. LOL I think it's funny the way adult kids are squeamish about any suggestion that their parents or aunt/uncle might still be having sex. (Are you listening Amy?)

  3. that's a great weigh in.

    yeah, arby's is kind of evil that way- the chicken salad sandwich is not a good choice even though it seems like it should be.

    the curly fries aren't that bad for an indulgence.

    Again, great weigh in, GO YOU!
