My Progress!

I guess Illness is good for something...Weigh In :)

This looks nothing like my weigh-in's and I have no clue who these guys are, but it cracked me up when I saw it. Boys are so silly aren't they? I mean seriously....get a room or something geesh.

Ok, Thanks to everyone for your well wishes while I've been sick. I'm still recovering, but think I'm finally on the mend after taking Zmax. For those of you who haven't tried it yet, all I can say is you will taste it for DAYS...blech. It's an entire bottle of antibiotics that you have to drink in one gulp. I had to bribe Tanner with Bill Millers (I know food...shame on mommy, but he HAD to drink it and he's taller than me now) a month ago when he had to take it. On my list of medicines that suck, it isn't at the top of the list, but it's right up there.

I went ahead and stepped on the scale expecting the worst honestly because even though I wasn't doing a lot of eating, what I was eating was not diet friendly. It was the comfort food/easy to swallow variety; think macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, ice cream. While I can't tell you how much I lost, I will tell you that it was my biggest lost since my first initial loss. I guess we'll have to see if the ice cream and other comfort foods catch up with me next week.

Today I'm firmly back on the wagon though. I had cheerios with a sprinkling of almonds and an orange for breakfast and I'm feeling more energetic today, but overall, my body still aches. I think its just from being in bed so much. I'm going to give myself one more day before jumping back into my workout routine.

I've also been thinking about calling up my old trainer. I think one of my goals is going to be getting back into his workouts. I loved that he didn't cut me any slack and really kicked my arse every single time I went to his gym. I loved leaving there and feeling like I had been hit by a mack truck. I guess because he made me do things I didn't think I could do at 400+ lbs. 200 pushup workouts, 20 minutes of step aerobics, 30 minutes of cardio kickboxing. I do need to build up my strength a bit though or he will seriously kill me. I probably need to get around to that stress test too. Regardless, that is one of my goals now; to get back to Denny some time this summer. Tanner and I had a lot of fun doing the kickboxing together and I felt stronger after three months with him than I had in a long time.

Ok, going to go rest a bit.

OH! I wanted to thank my Papa for sending me some money to make sure I continued going to the pool! Considering Tanner just trashed his hearing aid (not on purpose, but still...) the money is going to come in very handy so that I can continue going to the pool and send the aid in for repairs....did you guys know that health insurance won't pay for hearing aids or hearing aid repairs? It seriously sucks considering his hearing aid costs over $1000 and his cochlear implant processor is close to $8000. Later I'll have to tell you guys about the time he threw his hearing aid to the seals at Sea World (he was 2 and out of fish to feed them)...oh we can laugh about it now...then, not so much. I'm tellin' you guys, this kid gave us a run for our money.

Insurance sucks pretty badly sometimes. It really is horrible that they won't help with hearing aids. It seems like they would.

Glad to hear you're feeling better. I can't wait to hear the Tanner/hearing aid/Sea World story!

Glad to hear you're feeling better :)

My hubby refuses to watch UFC or anything when I'm in the room, because I'm always making comments about how homoerotic it is. :)

YAY for the weight loss! Isn't it a good feeling!!
But that personal trainer? OMG.. that sounds more like paying someone to torture you!
You're an inspiration to me... plain and simple. ;-)

Glad you're feeling better!

I KNOW I wouldn't workout nearly as hard without my trainers - I'm all for you going back to yours!

Grats on the loss, even though you won't say how much. ;)

Glad you're feeling better and congrats on the weight loss. On a different note... I noticed your book list on your sidebar. I loved Water for Elephants and my book club just read Moloka'i and we all loved it. Enjoy!

He fed his hearing aide to the seals! Sounds like something one of my boys would have done. lol

Congrats on the loss!

So hard to stay on track when you're feeling too ill to take the right care of yourself. But glad your health is headed in the right direction. :)
