Weigh In Day

I am so sore I could barely get up this morning. Hubby and I went on a 4 mile bike ride, which sounds really easy.. but it was mostly uphill!! I was dying. When we got home I was trying not to throw up.. which is really embarresing, considering my hubby was barely out of breath. grrrrr. I am definatley going to ride my bike everyday.. even if it is just up the hill by our house.. so that by next weekend, maybe I can keep up with him a little better.

Yesterday was definatley a PD#6.. which I am very proud of! Today we start over again and am going for PD#1 again! I weighed in at 209 which is a loss.. but again, not as much as I was hoping. BUT.. I am looking much better. My posture has changed and my torso is slimming down... even though my measurements are not changing much either... hmmm is that possible, or am I just seeing things? This week I am going to work extra hard so that I can fit into my wranglers once again.. we are headed to Las Vegas next week for 3 days of the NFR!! (National Finals Rodeo) YEEEEEEHAWWWWW. We didnt know if we would be able to go because we thought we would be in Puerto Rico.. but so far we have not heard anything, so we are just going to plan on going to vegas. Hubby is a retired Bull rider.. so he is thrilled to be going. Its pretty hard to get tickets.. they are usually sold out the year before, but my father-in-law somehow managed to get us some.

Anyway, I woke up this morning and did my Pilates and some upper body strength conditioning.. so I am off to a good start. Now if I can just keep it going all day. I want to take the girls for a walk, but the news says we are going to get snow this afternoon... YUCK! I am the worst person to live in the mountains, I absolutley HATE snow. I cant drive in it so it gives me terrible cabin fever. I also hate being cold, so that just does not help. So I will have to find something to do with the girls... maybe a dance workout?

My bulldog Jaz is doing better. They said that because of her age she is bleeding a little bit more then normal. They put pressure bandages on her and my mom said the bleeding has stopped. So it looks like she will be fine. My basset hound , Woodroe, is missing his friend though. He has been at my feet since she left... so we are both looking forward to her return, which should be in a couple of days. Then it is Woodroe's turn.. poor guy.

Looks like a day of knitting, reading and playing!! Hope everyone has a great start to their week...

Have a Blessed Day

You are so incredibly upbeat and positive! How inspiring!! :) Have fun in Vegas, I've never been there before, but it's definitely on my list :) And I'll keep Jaz in my prayers - it's so hard to see your loved one in pain. Take care and God Bless!

One great thing about biking is that you improve really quickly! So just stick to it and before you know it you'll be able to do those 4 miles without batting an eye!!!! Keep up the great work :) I love reading your blog everyday because you're always so positive!! Thanks :)

Congrats on the loss. It's not HUGE, but it is still great.

I don't know about you, but I can't do any major exercise the day before weigh in. I always end up with a gain if I do. You might just try weighing tomorrow and see what the scale shows then. Your muscles may be retaining water. Not that it's terribly important, but since you were hoping for more that might be inspiring or something. Or meddling.....

I like the new look of your blog. And such a cute dog. The picture makes me want to snuggle with him.

You seem to be doing really well with keeping up the exercize. The mirror and the scale will increasingly be your friends as you keep up with this.
