Your Wish Is My Command....Day 190 -208

That is to a certain extent of course!! I have decided to try this one more time. I have felt myself slipping and well I don't really think that I have anything worth reading about or wisdom or some extraordinary amount of weight to lose what weight I do have is pissing me off. I thought about waiting until Monday to start this blog over but Monday is to far away.

I love my new HR monitor. I wish that I had gotten it earlier but that is my lose for not listening to Marcelle. Glad I took the leap and got it though. I am burning 500 more calories doing Zumba!! As for running I haven't really been. It is so cold here and windy every day. Now I am sick and even bending over makes me head spin.

I bought a ipod nano today. Something for running this summer. Or when we get heat. Can't wait to play with it.

The funny thing is I have been reading some of the blogs and wishing my husband was more supportive. He promised to be more supportive then he is currently. He promised to run with me, go to the gym with me but after writing this blog I realized that he is being supportive. Just in another way. He has gotten me new running shoes, HR monitor, weights, yoga mat,ipod nano & my iphone (which has many many weight loss apps.)He is helping. In his own way. I guess I owe him a big hug when he gets home.

On to more exciting news. Today is Thursday so it is weigh in day. I have been keeping track of my weight every Thursday and I have been losing. Only ounces but losing. Today I am down 2.6 pounds. Well that is exciting I know I am sick and that is playing a role. Hopefully I will kick this sickness and get back on track. I have 19 pounds to go before I reevaluate my goal weight. I say this because after reading some peoples goal weights I wonder if I need to drop mine even further. I have 5 more pounds to lose before I am considered on target with my BMI. I am still currently overweight. Also after looking at pictures from this last weekend I have a very long way to go still. I am not happy with what I am seeing.

Welcome back....I'm happy to see you with all your updates, new toys and weight loss...what more can a girl ask for.

Thank God you have come to your senses and WOW on your loss!!!! I am so excited for you!!!!

You will keep losing, burning that many calories! I only lose about 450 on a 5K run, so you're losing more dancing the night away!

It's hard not to set "new goals"...I do the same thing. I still have 18.2 to go and I'm thinking about how much further I should go down. Let's encourage each other...we're at the same distance away from goal.

If I miss a post one day, it's not because I don't love you and support you, it's because life happened!!! I don't want you disappearing again Miss Sarah.

I'm glad you're back Sarah! Good choice to get back.

And good news that you have been losing weight!

I love my ipod, it's the one thing I can't do without during running. We have the same one.

My hub is supportive but not by telling me but giving me space to go running even though that means we eat later, he's not complaining. If I don't work out a few days he asks why. He eats what I put in front of him. If he wants chips on weekdays he waits till I've gone to bad so I won't be temped.

And ... he's giving me new running shoes for my birthday Saturday :)

Welcome back!!!

In defense of your husband, we sometimes bite off more than we can chew. We don't mean to promise more than we can do, but really all we want is for our wives to be happy. Sometimes that causes our promises to be larger than our ability to deliver.

dawne said...

Did I mention that I'm glad you're back??????

How did the eating go today, Queen Zumba?

Welcome back!!!

I've been gone a few days and decided to check on you and am glad to see you again.

The other day I had the opportunity to watch a little video clip of some people doing Zumba and I thought of you. I thought, "so, this is what Sarah really likes to do.."

Husbands definitely have diferent ways of supporting us. I think all the technical gits might be his way. I mean, I would love an ipod nano. LOL! I've been working out music-less for almost a year.

Good job on the loss by the way!
