As you read in my previous blog, mom made a GREAT Easter dinner (as if she could make any other kind!). I did really well, surprising myself even by taking only correct sizes. It helped that there was a lot of food, so in order to fit it all on my plate I had to use smaller sizes anyway. I'm one of those people that don't like my food overlapping. I've been pushing myself at the gym as well. Mainly on the bike. I don't turn the resistence down part way through like I used to. My thighs have been letting me know it, too! I still do only an hour after work on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, though today I only did half an hour as I got out of work really late and had had a hard day. I didn't even get a lunch break!
I guess not much else is going on. So, since this is the fourth week into this, roughly about a month, I will present you with a picture. I'll warn you now that it's not the greatest. I had just gotten home from the gym and gotten a shower and I hurt all over from lifting big dogs all day (and no...stupid me did not lift with my legs so my back is screaming at me...). So I'm in my comfy clothes, but I tried to find a somewhat tight-fitting shirt so you can see my frame easier. And now...(*drumroll*)...
I am down to 242...in other words, I have lost 21 pounds thus far! Holy macaral! I've NEVER lost this much before. I wasn't kidding earlier when I said I'd lose five pounds and give up. 21 pounds is NUTS!!!!
(and, yes, I know...my pictures look like mugshots. Mike always catches me a little off-guard!)
