I've lost 185lbs, and then gained some back.
But I'm kicking ass and striving for my ultimate goal: A 200 lb loss.
Working all mental, physical and emotional aspects of being healthy, happy and fit. You'll see my ups and downs here, because I'm proud to be imperfect!

8 Days left!
Good Monday, bloggers!
Weekend was good, and I had another awesome workout at Bodyology. This one was a 3 section, 10 minute per section, ladder complex for 2 of the 3. I started with metabolic, because it’s my weakest, so I wanted to bang it out while I still had some steam. 40 switch steps, 40 pushups, 40 band rows, and 40 burpees. Ugh.
Then I moved to TRX where the ladder complex began – 12, 10, and 8 (or 10, 8, 6 for intermediate/beginner) – jump squats, Y-flys, chest press, lunges, rows, core fall-outs.
Then finally, the strength section. Again, the ladder was the same, but I wanted to go a little heavier with weight and take the intermediate ladder. I grabbed a set of 25lb weights. One of the points of this particular set was to NOT remove your hands from the weights. Keep it moving. So, it’s working your grip and forearm strength as well as the other muscles in the exercise. It was weighted squats, exploding shoulder press, weighted lunges, dead lifts and pushups. 25 is my max with exploding shoulder press, and at this point of the workout, I could only “explode” them up once. After that, my form was obviously shot. My shoulders simply wouldn’t do anymore, so I had to drop weight to 20 lbs to do the ladder. About half way through, I thought I wasn’t going to finish is time, but I pushed and pushed. I finished with seconds to spare.
SUPER INCREDIBLY sore today! My legs especially.
Eating was good… tough to stay on track – temptation is everywhere, but triumphed on that. I find getting my water in on weekends especially challenging.
Last full week of work until surgery! I can’t believe it! In 8 days, I will go in. I’m getting more and more nervous, and trying very hard not to let the nerves get to me. I think I asked hubby 20 times this weekend if it was really “worth it”. I mean, major surgery – 2 boys at home… Each of those 20 times he looked me right in the eyes and said “YES. YOU are worth it”
Love that man.
That’s it for now. I hope you all are doing well out there! Norma mentioned some bloggers that have been MIA – I hope they are OK! Missing you!
