Weigh In

I almost forgot to update this sucker.. I've had other things to think about this week besides the ever back and forth of the scale.. so my apologies for that. Let's make it short and sweet (or messy depending on your preference).

Current Weight: 251 lbs (not much of a change here.. sadly.. but after last week I wasn't surprised.. I didn't even blink this time)

Work Out Achievement: Hmm let's see. I am now able to walk-jog about 4mph for semi-short distances which is a good thing because before just the word "jog" would make me cringe. I was always the "walk or run.. there is no jog" kind of person <---*insert Yoda voice there*

I wonder if attempting to use the force might work.. hmmm..

Besides that there isn't anything crucial.. Oh Oh! I have started experimenting with crunches.. My abs have been burning for the last couple of days. I'm hoping that by continuing, the burning will subside but the results remain.. LOL.. I only hope I don't turn out like that silly high school valley girl last night who spent 5 minutes straight glaring at the guy hogging the crunch machine as he was sprawled over it having what I guess was a thrilling phone conversation. (I had my headphones on so all I could hear was Madonna's 'Hung Up' so I can only guess what was going on there.) LOL

I've also been able to spend some more time getting oriented at SparkPeople.com and have now set up my Spark Page So I deem that an achievement. Don't you?

Goal(s): I'm still trying to find ways of having an efficient work out that doesn't require me to go to the gym every day. I have yet to find something that would work well for me. While I search I have (sometimes reluctantly) been driving over there. I've had really good work outs mixed in with rush jobs so I think I'm balanced out. This rain isn't helping. I love rain.. when I'm inside and drinking hot chocolate and watching Vin Diesel blow something up.

yes Vin, take me with you.. I'm ready.

But I don't have much fun with rain when I'm tired after work, I used the rain as an excuse earlier in the day to not head to the gym, and now I have to go or else I'll get home and won't leave my bed. EVER. AGAIN! So there's that. LOL.

Besides that, I think it's about time I switched the songs in my 'cheap-o mp3 player'. Since that poor thing only holds like 30 songs it's really like having a re-mix tape on repeat over and over and over again. Time for change!

Let's do this I say!

Wish me luck!

I started jogging recently with a stop watch, I walk for 3 minutes and jog for 1. I really feel like I'm moving, and it really chalenges me wile still being achivable at my fitness level. Also the intervals are great for my heart. Keep up the goo work!

I use this when I don't want to leave the house and it works really great. It's not some cheap-o piece of crap that'll break in the month and it gets my heart rate going and I definitely get sweaty. http://www.amazon.com/Stamina-55-1610-InMotion-Elliptical-Trainer/dp/B000VICRO8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1265335732&sr=8-2
