My Weight Loss Progress

Out of the mouths of Babes

So for the past year Hudson has referred to my fat as "being bouncy".  He asked me once why I was so bouncy?  I laughed and told him because I eat too many cookies.  I told him that I was working on it though and that I was trying to get healthy and be less bouncy!  Lol.

The other night Hudson comes up to me and says , "So, mommy are you not going to be bouncy anymore?"  He has obviously seen how much we have been going to the gym and we have been emphasizing to him that exercise is important and makes you healthy.  I responded with, "mommy is hoping she won't be bouncy anymore", he looks at me and says "I guess I will still love you, but I love you bouncy!"  I laughed and asked him why.  He says,  "because bouncy is more comfortable!".  I guess kids love those pillows and the soft bouncy body when getting snuggles.

Too bad for him, cause this bounce is going away soon!  It is nice to know that he loves me unconditionally though and that to him it doesn't matter how I look.  The other night he told me I was the prettiest girl in the whole world.  It made my night!  However the next morning, he looked at me and said, "Mom you're not pretty enough"..I said, "I thought I was the prettiest girl in the whole world?"  His response, "well, you are but what is up with that hair?  and you need some make up!"  LMAO!

Gotta love the kids and all the things that come out of the mouths of Babes!

Week 2

Sorry I haven't blogged much this week.  I worked on a project with the computer at my friends office and the mac book got left in the car and every time I thought about blogging, I was too lazy to go get it and charge the battery.  Week 2 has been a little harder than week 1.  It is always harder to stick to a strict diet and I have been very very busy which sometimes leads to eating on the run.  Eating on the run is never good.

I still worked out several times and will go to the gym today and tomorrow too.  My diet has still been way better than what it was but definitely not perfect.  That is what I have to work on the most.  It always has been.  I have been pretty good about drinking more water and I feel better.  I worked out with the Tamminator this week.  It had been a while.  She got me so sore!  I always enjoy a good workout with her and my friends.  I have missed them tons!

May should be another record breaking month for CPR!  I am pretty excited.  I can't wait to buy some more equipment and expand to the next level.  This weekend the kids and I are headed to Nashville and I am leaving Travis at home to finish the new upgrades to my website.  We will miss him but he will need the solitude to finish the project.

I promise to blog more soon!

Week 1 Overview

Down 4 Lbs in week one!  Do you think I can do it again?  Usually I would be skeptical but I am home most of the week so I should be able to get in all my workouts and do good on my diet.  Also Saturday I am doing my half marathon in Nashville.  That should help, too!  So far, so good.  I am happy with the program.  Hoping to have another really good week this week and then start averaging 2 pounds per week.  That is realistic.

This week I didn't miss a workout and I even added a few cardio sessions.  Here is my workout schedule for next week.
Monday: Chest & Triceps-Zumba
Tuesday: Legs
Wednesday: Shoulders & Abs
Thursday: Back & Biceps-Zumba
Friday: Off
Saturday: Half Marathon

The workout moves are pretty much the same for the first 4 weeks, so they will look very similar to what I posted last week.  Next week is really crazy with CPR and other obligations so it is very important that I make the very most out of this week.  Here is to wishing me luck!  I am so stoked about this week's progress that right now I am feeling pretty motivated!
