Disclaimer: I just realized that most of my Fitness Friday posts aren’t super informational, just whatever is on my heart and mind that week. Hope you don’t mind too much. If you want true nutrition information, check out Kelly the Kitchen Kop, or some of the blogs at Fitblogger. If you just want to cheer or groan from the sidelines and watch my epic battle with 100 pounds play out in real life, keep reading.
You can’t open a magazine these days without reading about spring detoxes. There are questionable chemical methods, the maple syrup and lemon juice method, and various other things that make ya go “hmmm.”
No weight loss to report this week. Instead I have some musings on vitamins, ayurveda, holistic medicine, and other stuff.
A couple of more pounds and I’ll be back down to 12 pounds lost (net) for the year. Today I thought I’d share a tip with you that I just learned on the Clutter Diet that works just as well for weight loss!
I am holding steady, no loss or gain to report. I’ve been slacking off on counting calories and not exercising. Seems to be a common theme among weight loss bloggers–I saw a sign the other day that said “Februdreary.”
It drives my husband nuts, but when it comes to sports I don’t have a competitive bone in my body. I trained for a 10K one year and ended up walking most of it because I came across a really nice group of ladies who were just trying to finish using the run/walk intervals. I enjoyed the scenery and made new friends. The photo above is me and the group I trained with after my first sprint triathlon. I had three goals for that race: 1) Don’t drown. 2) Finish. 3) Don’t be the very last person.
I don’t know about you, but I weigh myself in the morning, freshly out of the shower, before eating or drinking, and after cleaning my ears (just in case – not that I have enough earwax to make a bit of difference on the scale, but one can never be sure), completely naked.
I’ve come to the conclusion that the second week of each month I will neither lose nor gain weight; such is the rhythm of life.
Life is good. Yesterday I had my first FastTrac New Venture class and was surrounded by other entrepreneurs. We’re one step closer to opening our brewery; seeing the list of classes over the next 10 weeks makes the path so much clearer.
This is my current photo. I’m only down 8 pounds, so I don’t think it looks that different from the “before.” Plus DH wouldn’t get up from watching TV to take a decent picture so the angle is a bit weird.
