Today I'm linking up once again to Jen's Health and Fitness Fridays!
I'll start today by saying that I have been MIA due to my severe clumsiness! 3 weeks ago while carrying Nate downstairs after his nap I slipped on some clothes that I threw down the stairs earlier and fell down the last 5 stairs. If you have seen my stairs you know that they are pretty much a 90 degree angle up so this isn't the first time I have fallen....because like I said I suffer from a severe case of being too clumsy. Well, back to my story: so as I was falling I leaned to the side so that Nate wouldn't get hurt and somehow I managed to get my left leg caught between me and the wall going the opposite direction....yes, It hurt like Hell! I was pretty sure that I broke it, as I was getting pissed at myself just thinking about the bill I would get if I called an ambulance to come and get me I realized that I could get up and somewhat walk. So, I just sucked it up and because I am a mom and my job is never done I continued to do my everyday activities and dealt with it. I'm pretty sure I sprained both my knee and ankle and since I put off going to the doctors by the time I went they really couldn't do anything...opps.... So, long story short I had to take 3 weeks off from working out and I'd be lying if I said I enjoyed it! It was crazy how much I missed working out! SO, I'm finally back! I started back up with some light workouts on Tuesday and seem to be doing well with minimal pain! AND I was able to keep my weight in check through no workouts and Thanksgiving!
In light of that really long paragraph that really could have been explained in like two sentences I do have some good news to share!
*****Drum Roll Please*****
I hit my first weight loss goal yesterday!! My first goal was to get back in the 250's which is where I was before I started having kids. Obviously that's not where I want to be but it works for me right now!
Since August I have lost 23lbs and have finally hit 259!
I am making progress, I'm hopeful that I will be totally back on track within the next couple of weeks and have given myself a pretty big goal for December! I want to be in the 240's before the New Year. I know I can do it if I push myself and get back on track with my eating so what I'm asking you all to do is make sure that I am staying on track! Keep me accountable!
To End here is a video for your viewing pleasure!
If you have never heard of Mike Chang look him up. I have started doing some of his Ab workouts and they are awesome!
Until Next Time....
