SP 3rd Blog - April 04, 2010

I cannot seem to get my posts written, so this morning I woke up early to write one before work.  The past week has been fairly uneventful.  I did all my routine workouts.  My double time Wednesday went smoothly, and I was even told that my new class likes me!  So, yay!  Then I ran 10 miles on Friday and 7.7 miles on Sunday.   Last night I had a fabulous Body Pump class.  I upped my weight on pretty much everything (except squats and lunges because of my poor knees :(((  ) and was struggling through the entire class.  It was awesome!  Then I killed the elliptical for an hour.  ;)  I've been eating healthfully and I think I'm starting to see results again.  A friend that works at the Y I instruct at even said it looked as though I've lost some weight!  So w00t w00t!  Yes, that's two w00ts because I'm doubly excited!  ;)  I've been tired, but I know why, so meh.  Today I've actually felt pretty energetic thus far, then again I've started trying to hit the sack by 10:30 so I think that helps. I do regret that I cannot seem to get more blog posts out more often, but by the time I actually get to sit down and relax for a little bit (around 9:00-10:00 pm) the last thing I want to do is think. Oooh and on Saturday I went to the thrift store and bought a bunch of new stuff!  Surprisingly almost everything I bought looked brand new.  I live in a wealthy city and I'm sure that a lot of the clothes are a product of rich women either changing their mind about liking something or just never wearing it before they clean out their closet (some of the stuff even had tags on them!).  I've been thrift store shopping for the past 2+ years and I have to say I think I'm addicted.  I'm quite the bargain shopper and I think coming out of a store after spending $55 with a dress, 3 skirts, 3 pairs of jeans, 7-8 tops and a pair of shoes is about as awesome as it gets.  I bought my first pair of size 2 jeans, so now I finally have a pair of jeans that fit properly!  And I also bought a size 0 pair of jeans and a size 0 skirt.  They were both half off so about $1.70 each and I just couldn't pass it up.  The size 0 jeans fit with about an inch to an inch and half to button and the skirt was just too damn cute to pass up, especially at $1.70.  I now have my "goal" jeans hanging on the back of my door so every morning as I get ready I have them to look at, it's good motivation.  I can afford to shop at other places but I've come to realize it's just a preference for me, I get a rush off of saving money.   Not to mention I still hope to lose a little bit more weight so I don't want to drop too much money before reaching my "goal".   That's about all as far as my weekly recap goes, so I decided to go ahead and post another old blog from Sparkpeople.  This one makes me smile to see how far I've come since then!  *Edit*  Oh, and I have received several compliments about my outfit today (particularly the blouse), so below is a picture of me in my new size 2 jeans and new top!

Sunday, April 04, 2010

So, two nights in a row I jogged!!! I've been walking so fast on the treadmill that I thought man I just feel like running!!! But I never did, I was afraid I'd look stupid or embarrass myself; two nights in a row I would jog then speed walk, jog then speed walk, I averaged at 12 min/mile and then 10.74 the next night!! Wow I never thought I'd see myself here, and I checked my blood pressure today.... 111/74 and pulse of 77! Holy snikies!!! I'm rocking it man! emoticon


  1. I love reading your old posts!

    Size 2! Awesome! You are such a huge inspiration to me! I'm also 5'2" and I started at 260lbs in October 2011. I'm now 199lbs. It feels awesome to be under 200lbs and I look forward to the day when I wear size 2 jeans!

    1. Wow! You are doing amazingly well! With that kind of attitude you will be there soon!
