.2 ounces??

I stepped on the scale this morning as usual...and I had lost I think .8 oz which is good! I was happy.. but then i went running, and I have gotten into this crazy habit of not eating anything before my run, and after I'm done I race home, strip down and hop on the scale without drinking any water ( see how obsessive i am ) and today with my second weigh in, I had lost lost .8 oz, which put me .2 oz away from exactly a 50 pound loss.....grrrrrrrrrr.

I know I am so weird!
Had to share..
and I am spreading good vibes to all!! hugsss

Well it is the start of what is supposed to be a very nasty weekend here, possibly snow today..thats right, snow. I won't let it get me down tho, I have a "beauty day" planned, just here at home of course. I want to give myself a mani pedi, and color my hair..I did all the cleaning yesterday, so thats my treat.

I am going to get out there this morning before it gets too nasty and do my run, I am starting week 6 of C25K today and I am a little nervous about it. I have been doing 20 minute runs all week without stopping, and yesterday I pushed myself and went even further, I'm beginning to really enjoy this running thing.

This weekend I am treating as a "uber healthy fasting" weekend. I have been eating carbs only in the AM, drinking lots of water and tea, and trying to really watch what I'm eating overall. For lunch yesterday I had sugar free jello and non-fat yogurt, it works... I have lost 2 lbs since Wed. In the last month or so, I have been starting to drink wine or martinis or whatever, and I've felt like my weight loss was going soooo slow. So I'm taking a little hiatus for a bit. Untilll, well, a friend had asked me to dinner tomorrow night, so I will try to not give in to peer pressure!

I really hope everyone has a great day, I'm sorry I haven't been a very good logger lately, but I'm trying to get better!!

Tuesday ramblings..and pics!

It's another sunny day today...love this weather, it motivates me. I was outside all day yesterday and accomplished quite a bit. I started seedlings for a veggie garden, this time I will grow this garden! I tried a couple years ago, but honestly I think my weight kept me out of the garden, and I really had no interest in it. Things are a little different now :)

My Dr. appt went well yesterday, he was very impressed that I had lost 11 lbs from my last appt about 3 1/2 weeks before that. He asked me if I was in the green zone, which is the "sweet spot" and I was like, no! He seemed a little surprised, I don't think he wanted to give me a fill, but he gave me a little one, and now I am going to see him monthly.

Then I started thinking, am I in the green? Am I satisfied all the time, I don't want to abuse the band, or misuse it in any way. But I don't think I was. Give me that fill!

I thought I would post a couple pis from my vacation, even swimsuit ones..*scary music*

Have a great day!

Back from vaca, missed my blogger friends!

I know I have been MIA, but I went on a vacation, and then I needed a few days after I got home...something about taking a vacation that is extremely exhausting..

I have completely avoided the scale since I returned, I did allow myself to eat and drink all kinds of bad things..so I since I've been home I have just been very focused and getting back to my routine. Because I was gone so long I haven't been to the Dr. in over 3 weeks and I am way over due for a fill. So when I go on Monday I will weigh in....*scary music*

I hope everyone is doing well, I haven't had time to catch up on blogs yet, but I will this weekend.

I missed a whole lotta rain while I was away, but it is gorgeous now, and I see some grilling in the near future.

FYI...week 4 of C25K is so hard!! I normally do each session back to back when I run, to get more of a workout in...but not this week. oy. I still can't believe I ran for a full 5 minutes yesterday..and I'm getting ready to go do it again right now.
