Weighing in with Him

It’s been awhile since I have posted a weigh in post.  I am really going to get back in the habit of posting that weigh in because it keeps me accountable.  I have been weighing in, just not taking the time to post.  I’m sorry   🙁

It’s the holidays. And that means that I am running around like a crazy person, trying to stay sane.  And let’s just say…I don’t feel like I am doing a good job of staying sane…at all….AHHHHHH!  So much to do and no time!! A friend reminded me today that Christmas is in less than 2 weeks….initiate freak out mode. Ya.

Weigh in!!

Last week: 132.8 lbs
Today’s weigh in: 133.0 lbs

Ok so I am pretty much the same. Maintaining.  Like I have been for pretty much the past 3 weeks.  That’s good. Except for the fact that I wanna be in the 120’s by Christmas! I got alot of work to do.  I don’t know if I can get rid of those 3 lbs by Christmas or not…but I sure as heck am gonna try!

While I was in St Louis for Thanksgiving, I did some Black Friday shopping, which included shopping for myself as well.  I seriously had no winter clothes that fit!  I have added some items to my wardrobe that actually were size Large, instead of Extra large! Whoohooo! I also FINALLY found some jeans at American Eagle that fit me in the booty! I have been on a month long jean adventure and sometimes it just wasn’t pretty.  I will post about that this week 😉  The booty post. Look for it later this week. 😉

I did measurements this week as well and here were the changes.

Right arm- 11 1/4″ (same)
left arm- 11″ (down 1/4″)

Chest- 38 1/2″ (down 1/2″)

Waist- 36 1/2″ (FINALLY got away from that pesky 37″ –> down 1/2″)

hips- 36″ (down 1 1/2″!!!!!  I had bought some yoga pants a couple weeks ago that fit wonderfully and are now falling off. No wonder!!)

So there is still progress! Also check out last weeks work outs I completed:

Monday- Christmas tree up and Christmas decorations up.  Ya. I am going to consider that a work out…lots of lifting, squatting, and reaching!

Tuesday- Fire 45, 20 min extreme abs, and Chalean Extreme Push 1

Wednesday- Fire 30, Zumba 20

Thursday- Fire 30, 20 min abs, Zumba 20 and Chalean Extreme Push 2

Friday- no work out 🙁 I was feeling awful as my monthly visitor appeared.

Now time for the hubbys weigh in!

Last weeks weight: 158 lbs
This weeks: 154 lbs

He had two big changes in his measurements:

Waist- 45 1/2″ (down 1/2″)

Hips- 45″ (down 1″!!!)

Way to go hubby!!!

Non scale Victories for the week

4) I did Chalean Extreme twice last week.  This week, I am aiming for 3!
5) I did abs 3 times last week 🙂
