4 weeks done! Only 6 left!!! (aka Double Springy Journal)

Wednesday - February 10, 2010


So, today was encouraging because I found out I'd lost another 8 and 1/2 inches. While I would have liked to have lost more than 1/2 lb, I'll take what I can get.


Today was another snowed in day for me. But, since we are snowed in, guess what there was plenty to do - snow shoveling!!! My arms feel like they are about to fall off. I just shoveled snow for an hour straight. I really thought I was getting into shape until I started to shovel snow tonight.



(The car at the top left is the one we were getting out and then we ended up shoveling a lot of this street too because the borough hasn't bothered!)

I also got in a 25 minute work out earlier today - I'm only planning on counting it for 1 point right now though. I guess I'll carry the 5 minutes over for another day, if that is okay. (I think I read Tami did that last fitness challenge - so hoping this still applies for this challenge!)


I think that's all for now - I'm starting to thaw out from being outside, so I'm getting kind of chilled.

Thought I'd share some of winter wonderland pictures for you. These were taken from the first snow we got, not the latest 5-6 inches that we got last night, so the snow is actually a lot higher now than it was in these pictures.




This is to show how tall it was (and these are some jeans I haven't been able to fit into in over a year!!!) - see this is fitness related. :)





My husband getting in some exercise!


These are my "kids!" See how tall the snow is on them!

Well, I'm going to keep this short as I'm trying to make up some time for work this evening.

Did not walk at work - too cold and the parking lot is very slippery and snowy. I did get in 1 hour and 35 minutes of DDR, Wii Active and Helix - I did all sorts of stuff today. Good news...I can tell my endurance is getting stronger, I'm having to kick it up to even get worn out. :) (Oh, I'm counting 1 hour and 40 minutes since I had 5 minutes left over from yesterday.)

Ok, that's it for now!

Friday - February 12, 2010

I tried to keep my work-out time a little shorter today. My husband seemed kind of disappointed that I was going to do a long work-out, so out of respect to him I did a short one.

I worked out for 40 minutes tonight doing my DDR.

Saturday - February 13, 2010

Today was a crazy run errands day. Since we've been snowed in much of the last week, we were running low on oodles of stuff. I did manage to get in some work-out time though - 1 solid hour.

Funny story...(I think so anyway)

My husband had to get a haircut today - so I was wandering around Wal-mart waiting for him. I happened to be in the yogurt section and decided to pick some I'd seen some commercials for - just to see if they really are good or not.

On the way home, I said to my husband "I can't wait to try my new yogurt!" He was like, "Did you hear what you just said?" I told him I had and that I'd actually thought to myself - "oh, no I'm becoming a freak!"

Moral of the story: If I (a junk-food lover) can eat healthier foods anyone can!

Sunday - February 14, 2010

I wanted to work-out today, I really did. But my body was like "are you crazy? I'm exhausted!!!" So, I had an official day of rest today.

Monday - February 15, 2010

I was able to get in one solid hour of working out. I only have one day left for my light intensity 30 Day challenge - so that is exciting.

Tuesday - February 16, 2010

Today was the last day of my 30 Day challenge, and tomorrow I'll be starting another one - just on the next level of intensity up. I did a few different things today during my work-out. I did my Wii Active for awhile and then played Helix. While playing Helix, I added wrist weights to spice things up a bit and then played some normally w/o the weights, but at a high intensity.

And now to the weekly update:

I'll start with my measurements:

Bust: 1 inch less

Chest: 1/2 inch less

Waist: same

Hips: 1/2 inch less

Right Thigh: 1.5 inches less

Left Thigh: 1.5 inches less

Right Arm: same

Left Arm: same

Total Inches for this week: 5 inches less

Total Pounds lost for this week: 1 pound

Cumulative Total:

29.5 inches lost

5 pounds lost

Good for you Carrie! Yes, I always carry over my extra minutes. You are doing great! By the way, I love yogurt, and I think I always have. I bought one of those yogurt drinks at the store today for a snack on the way home. It was really good. Keep up the great work!

Love you,

Tami
