Health and Fitness Friday: Being MIA and some more progress!


Happy Friday!!

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....
