WI for 2-22-10

2-1-10 weight 252.0 lbs
2-8-10 weight 248.0 lbs down 4.0 lbs
2-15-10 weight 245.5 lbs down 2.5 more lbs down 6.5 total lbs
2-22-10 weight 244.0 lbs down 1.5 more lbs down 8.0 total lbs

So frustrating to see so little change. Aiming for 2 pounds per week minimum but I guess a loss is better then no loss or eek a gain. I really have been pushing myself more this week with workouts but did miss Wed, Fri, and Sun, so I guess I have to get back into the daily groove again.

My so-called life...

Well today was a typical day for us. Got up this morning bright and early to get Corbin off to school. Then I was able to go back to bed for about an hour before Jax was up. He was in a good mood but didn’t eat well because of the nasty nose he woke up with again. Got him a shower and got us both dressed and ready to go to the YMCA. Today I did my usual 20 minutes on the tread climber but changed things up during my 20 minutes on the treadmill. I actually worked up my speed and pushed it hard for 5 minutes before working back down. It actually wasn’t as uncomfortable as it has been.

Now I’m at work and it has been a pretty laid-back day.

Like I said typical day and life with us is fairly simple.

New Era

I have a new cell phone now. And it has all the bells and whistles so, I started a Twitter and plan to start blogging and Twitting frequently now. I really hope to make some new friends and meet lots of different people doing this.

Jax Update!

He had his first birthday a few weeks ago and his one year check up the following week. He now has 8 teeth and seems to be slowly working on those molars. The week after his birthday he started taking steps, just a half dozen at a time to start, but now is walking everywhere. He has even started getting much better at turning and changing direction. He still isn't saying much, but really communicates well in other ways and understands so much. At his check up he weighed 20lbs 13 oz which puts him at 25th% for weight and was 30.5 in which places him at 50th% for height. This is up from 6 lbs 3 oz 17.5 in at birth. Also he took quiet a leep height wise as he was only in the 25th% for height at his 6 month check up and had grown 2.5 in in one month according to what WIC measured him as at 11 months. Here is one of my favorite pictures of my big boy from the morning of his birthday:

WI update for 2-15

2-1-10 weight 252.0 lbs
2-8-10 weight 248.0 lbs down 4.0 lbs
2-15-10 weight 245.5 lbs down 2.5 more lbs down 6.5 total lbs

Well just 2.5 more pounds, but a loss is a loss. I think it may be time to step up the cardio just a little.

New Year New Me

The first of February I started a plan for a new me. I am working out daily at the YMCA and watching my intake better. I will be doing weigh-ins on Monday mornings and keeping a record here.

This first week has gone great. I am loving working out and the extra energy I seem to have now. And it has paid off, I can also see my endurance building as I am able to push myself more now then on day one.

2-1-10 weight 252.0 lbs
2-8-10 weight 248.0 lbs down 4.0 lbs!

Not a bad start I say.
