WLW - Let's get this kicked into gear

        So, I'm not sure what happened yesterday. But I had a good spurt of energy even though I was also absolutely exhausted from Gabriel not sleeping well still. Weird, I know. But, I got some cleaning done, laundry folded, and I even did a mini workout! I did 10 push-ups(girl push-ups but hey, you gotta start somewhere!), 12 sit ups, 10 squats, 10 lunges(10 each leg), and 15 side crunches(each side). And man my body is burning today! I could barely walk up and down the stairs yesterday afterwards and today is even worse. But that's good! Today I did the first 6 moves of this workout Self Fitness Butt Workout.  Then I did this ab and butt work out from That link is to their website. This link is to the video on pinterest(I can't find the actual video on their website =/ ) Bonus A$$ and Legs workout. And man am I going to feel those later! For the end of the video where she uses a sandbag I just didn't use weights and I did 15 regular push-ups instead of inverted. I really liked the workout and the lady was really sweet. But I didn't like the attire and most of their videos look to have similar clothing. Why didn't I like it? Well 2 reasons really. 1, because it was super skimpy and 2, because I didn't need that blow to my ego haha. But, seeing her super toned body was also kind of motivating.

        I haven't changed much. Weight is still at 189. I got down to 187 as of last Thursday. But we ate out a few times this weekend so I went back up. As for my measurements. I'm not sure where I stand. I am about to do them now, so this should be interesting.

                      Neck: 13 1/2 in (Up 1/2 in)
                      Arms: 13 in (Up 1 in)
                     Chest: 41 in (Down 1 1/2 in)
                     Waist: 37 in (Same)
                       Hips: 45 in (Same)
                   Thighs: 24 in (Up 1/2 in)

        Well, some of those might be off because I'm not actually using a tape measure. I'm using a cord and then measuring that. Ours broke and we still haven't picked one up. But, either way I'm happy. Going to try and workout again during nap time. Do some sit ups, side crunches, lunges, and who knows what else. It's quite weird. I've had random spurts where I felt like I wanted to get healthy and workout. But it was just a feeling of I want to be there not like I wanted to do the work to get there. But, yesterday and today I actually want to workout. It is like an itch to want to do more sit ups and push ups. But, I'm going to run with it and take this burst of randomness as far as I can. Hopefully to the finish line! Hopefully next week I will be down to 185 or less and will post an update picture =)

Weight Loss Wednesday - Number 5 aka Catching Up

        Sorry, I haven't been around folks. I know I've apoligized for this before, but things keep getting in the way of me updating. The Hubs is still doing school work that requires him to have the computer most nights and during the day I'm chasing the boys around while trying to catch up on things on Facebook with my phone and clean. I still haven't had the opportunity to do much exercise wise. And I'm starting to wonder if that will ever change or if I'll have to start waking up at 5 every morning just so I can get something done. Which just getting up will be a task, much less having to be productive. I have never been a morning person. And not getting much sleep the last few nights has really been taking it's toll on me. I don't even remember The Hubs waking me up yesterday morning to tell me goodbye before he left for work! Ugh. Anywho, here is an update on the whole weight loss thing.

         Weight: 189(as of this morning - same as last week - a total of 6 lbs so far)


                        Neck: 13 in (same)
                        Arms: 12 in (down 1 in)
                       Chest: 42 1/2 in (same)
                       Waist: 37 in (down 1 in since last time - down 4 1/2 in total)
                         Hips: 45 in (same)
                     Thighs: 23 1/2 (down 1/2 in - down 1/2 in total)

        This week should be the last week of school for The Hubs, so hopefully I'll be around more often. But, with two littles who knows! Hope everyone has a wonderful week and weekend. I will hopefully get to go trash picking so you know my weekend will be good! =)
