Na Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Goodbye…

5 Aug

No way is this me saying goodbye to you wonderful people.  This is my bon voyage, not so fond farwell, git outta here post to those craptastic 300’s!!!!!!

Heck yes that means what you think it means Fit Chick Folowers…I lost 5 more pounds this week, making my current weight…295.5.  That is a 38 pound loss in 9 weeks!  Now to make it official:

  • 318- what I weighed when I found out I was pregnant (should make this one hopefully this week)
  • 299-officially out of the God-Awful 300’s!   Does this make you smile like it makes me smile? 😀
  • 275-What I weighed when I got married to my wonderful husband.
  • 250-Midway to being out of 200’s.
  • 235-What I weighed after 1 year of dating my husband.
  • 220-What I weighed when I met my husband.
  • 199-Officially out of the dreaded 200’s!
  • 185-What I weighed when I graduated from high school.
  • 160-My ultimate goal. I do not even ever remember weighing 160 unless it was in middle school on my way up in weight.

This is a huge accomplishment for me, not only because I am leaving those 300’s behind, but because I managed this feat on one massively chaotic week.  This is what my week was like:

Isn’t this little Tink Tink the cutest?

  1. Worked until Wednesday
  2. Drove Wednesday to Arkansas
  3. 6 hour trip took 8+ hours due to screaming baby
  4. Logging onto work remotely to complete month end reports when we got to Arkansas…at 10:30 pm
  5. Get food for around 40 people for my Tink Tink’s first 1st birthday party (there will be 2 parties)
  6. Visit with inlaws
  7. Visit with my family
  8. Baking and decorating cupcakes and smash cake as well as some food prep for the party.
  9. Decorate and have party.  Tink Tink gets sleepy and refused to smash the cake I spent all that time making and decorating. 😉
  10. Put Tink Tink in small town baby beauty pageant (she won 2nd alternate…although we know who I think the cutest was!)
  11. Sweat my imaginary go nads off watching niece in her pageant.
  12. Visited with my sister and her family, including the one and only Boog.  He is the coolest nephew ever!
  13. Woke up at 3 am to get on the road so Tink Tink would hopefully sleep most of the trip home.
  14. Got home around noon.
  15. Other than playing with my Tink Tink, I have done nothing else today.

The point of this incessant rambling is that I have had zero time to think about exercising or nutrition, other than just abstaining from the bad stuff.  I am positive I could have fit in some workouts late at night or early morning, but I had no energy to do more than what I did.

So you see those 5 pounds lost were not really expected this week, and were very much welcomed.

Thank you all for sticking with me while I scratch off these goals one by one!  I hope I can keep you entertained and motivated along the way.

Please feel free to dish some of your busy life back at me.  It is only fair that I listen to you since you listened to me!  Comment about whatever is on your mind this week!  I have missed you guys!

Stay strong and keep moving,

    Congrats on another great week! You have every right to be proud of yourself. And I agree with you, Tink Tink is the cutest!…..Jane

      Thanks Jane! Biggest thanks for agreeing with me about my kiddo 😉 How have you been doing lately?

        Still working out, my trainer is going to Italy for 2 weeks so I have to maintain on my own. I will make him proud! Adding food back into my diet is hard but I’m trying to keep it healthy like adding an extra fruit or eating nuts as a snack. I will conquer this food addiction. By the way this week I reach a milestone, I will be 60 years young on Saturday Yikes! But age is only a number. Have a great week – keep strong, you can do it!…..Jane
