And now back to our regularly scheduled programming

Sorry about the blog detour for the past few posts. I had something to address and I did so and now it's time to move on!

I took half the day off and went to the gym when I got off. It was NICE! I love being there. I had some errands to run so I will finish up one one workout tonight. I also have to finish up my cardio.

As much as I love doing cardio at the gym, I am going to have to do it here at home. Why? Because I received 2 months FREE unlimited tanning and I have to take advantage of it before it expires on the 29th. I prefer to go to the gym during lunch for weights and cardio after work. But that doesn't leave tanning time. So I will go tan after work. That means there is no time for cardio. If there is any thing I can do at home, as far as weights go, then I will. I can work my abs here at home and do cardio at the gym. But my two trips to the gym must cease if I want to take advantage of this tanning package. I am entitled to 3 hours a week for gym time. I should take advantage of that so I could use the cardio equipment there. I might just ask for an extra 30 minutes at lunch 3 days a week instead. That way I can do weights and light cardio. I might have Clint take the baby to daycare once a week for me so I can go in early, but I doubt that will happen because A-I don't want to get up that early and B-with gas prices so high, making two trips to Altus is nuts. Guess cardio is at home!

My eating has been great (almost). Felt a little ick the past few days. I ate about 1/2 of mashed potatoes with gravy (rounding up here) and I felt so gross afterwards. Clearly my body doesn't like heavy foods anymore. Now that I can have a little more variety other than green beans, asparagus, and broccoli, meal time is better! It's not *so* boring. By no means am I complaining. It's helped me come this far. I'm just saying that chicken and green beans is gross!

I'm going to see if I can catch a brisk nap. Then it's cardio time!!!! My goal is to see 125 by Monday morning. Sunday *should* be my weigh in, but I will be out of town this weekend. I won't be cheating, but I sadly don't get in all of my water AND...I won't be able to weigh myself either. So, Monday, I WILL BE 125!!! That's only 2 lbs. It's do-able. I read a post by Melissa H and she was saying that Tony told her he wanted her to be X weight by X time but she was stuck. I was the same way. I stayed at 131 forever. Then one day it went to 129, then to 127 and now it's stuck there. So it appears that my weight comes off in chunks. I don't slowly go down. Nope. WOOSH. There it goes. So I will probably make it to 125. If this month follows last month, I am right on target. The last 2 weeks, I will lost the bulk of the weight. If I can lose another 8 lbs this month, I will be at 119. Shreek!!!! How exciting is that? Come on weight...fall off in big chunks...big chunks!

Hi! Are you by chance doing Power 90? You've mentioned Tony a few times and I know you're on a new plan, so I wondered if that was Tony Horton. I read back to see if I missed something, but I don't think you ever spelled out your new plan. Or I missed it somehow! :) ~~ Jess
