Weigh in Day 9/14/12 37.8 LBS down 52.2 LBS to go!

14 Sep

I am super happy with a weight loss this week of 1.8lbs and a little shocked too!  I have to say it was an up and down week in terms of motivation, but on Tuesday I was surprised and ridiculously pleased that Lilly Sue over at Lilly Sue’s Bites and Brews awarded me the very inspiring blogger award ( I am still working on that post and trying to follow the rules).  It was a surprising lift to my attitude and helped me stay on course all week.  There is something about knowing other people are rooting for you and watching your journey that really made the difference for me, who knew?  So THANK YOU again Lilly Sue!

I changed my workouts a little this week by increasing the resistance on my elliptical from 10 to 11 and then on Wednesday I started carrying my trekking poles in an effort to toughen up my weak arms.   I have to say by Thursday I was exhausted while doing my workout, but I still did it if not with the same intensity I had earlier in the week so I am going to celebrate the fact I at least finished.

I also had reflexology again on Monday and I am not totally sold on if it is helping or not but I love the attention my poor abused feet are getting!  It is supposed to help detoxify the body and get things working right again or at least more right then they have been…. it is only my second session but I do feel better!

Thank you all for your support and kind words this week, it was a tremendous help!

Oh and as a shout out to my best supporter, my sweet hubby Aaron….Congratulations on your awesome weight loss too!  Although you didn’t need to lose the weight, it  looks great on you!  I am so proud of you!

    I love this! You are famous and have once again motivated me. I am back to working out now 3 days a week. Next week I will increase some of my intensity again thanks to you. I want to hear more about your reflexology too. Heard about it but don’t know anyone who has done it yet. Hugs! Tam
