Well I am happy to say that the treadmill that I got for my birthday like 3 years ago is no longer being used a clothes rack. HAHAHA!!
I have been running and walking on it. I'm trying to get faster on it. I seem to be improving slightly. That is how it goes isn't it? I am now running a 15 1/2 minute mile. I know it sounds slow I really would like to get down to a 10 minute mile is that crazy??

Weigh in Wednesday results!!

Well it is once again its Wednesday!! Which means weigh in day for my biggest loser contest. I am down another 2.6 pounds since last week. If you are keeping track that is down 7.2 pounds since starting!! Which means that I only have about 13 pounds to go to get to my goal of 20 pounds by my birthday. I think I am going to smash that goal!!!
Its so much harder to take it off than it is to put it on!!
I did have someone tell me that I am looking good and my face looks slimmer. This is nice to hear since I am not seeing any difference in my body. I am anxious to lose some "baby weight" Yes I am aware that my baby is 2!!
I did put on a pair of jeans this morning and they felt looser but I think this was all in my head!
Well tell next time!! happy dieting and exercising!!

Well my biggest loser contest is under way and our weigh in was Wednedsay.
I am down 4.6 lbs since starting. Which is a 2.1% weight loss. All of my online searching says that this is a good weight loss. I am happy and this means I have about 15 more to go to hit my birthday goal! I may surpass it which would be awesome!!!
Have a happy happy day!!

Work out Update!

I have been working out everyday this week. Mostly I have been getting on my treadmill. It has been a while since I was using it. Sad I know!! Anyway I got on it today and walked at the highest incline for 10 minutes. {My rear is going to be sore!} Then I lowered the incline and
jogged for 22 minutes straight no stopping!!!!
Can I get a woot woot!!!

I probably could have gone longer too but the kiddos were needing some attention. Don't they know that if I get in a workout I will be a much happier mommy?? I have also been watching what I eat. Just for the record counting calories sucks my will to live. There should be a better way!!
I am so proud of my self for running that long. I think if I were outside I would have quit before then. The treadmill makes me keep going. So I guess I am off to a good start!

Biggest Loser

My cousin Amber has started a Biggest Loser Competition. I have always wanted to do one of these. I have a friend at work that did one and she lost a ton of weight. I have just needed a little boost to get me going. There are about 12 ladies doing it together and we are all over Utah and Idaho. We have a group on Face book and that is how we are staying in touch. We are also doing challenges every week. I hope this is the jump I need to get me to that 20 lb goal by my birthday. This competition goes for 8 weeks! Stay tuned today was our weigh in!!

Biggest Loser

My Cousin had an idea to do a Biggest Loser contest.
We are keeping track of it on Facebook. Ladies from all over are joining in.
We are going for 8 weeks starting on Wednesday.
The pay in is $10-20 this part hasn't been decided yet.
There are 12 of us "competing"
We are going off of percentages lost.
This will help me hit my 20 lb loss by my birthday!
Wish me luck!!

DAY 1 down 79 to go!

I am beginning to think this running hype is overrated. Maybe I just need to give it some more time.
I ran/walked (walked more than ran) 1.7 miles on my treadmill in 38 minutes and burned 251 calories than I did 20 push ups and about 3 minutes of abs.
It felt good. I hope I can remember this felling on Monday when I try to get moving! Here we go to 20 LBS!!!!!!

I went on a walk & little run tonight. I was only gone about 20 minutes. I need to either go before it gets to dark or in the morning. I think with school starting I will load up the little boys as the oldest is leaving and walk with him. This is my plan. I kind of like the night though. Well see what happens!
My journey to skinny!
Watch for my goals, progress, and more as I get ready for a couple of "BIG" trips to the beach!!
