Monday Morning

We had a great weekend! And I took a ton of pictures.. but like the Blondie I am not, I erased them! ACCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCHHHHH... I almost cried. There were some great pictures... oh well..

Anyway, we went to my Father In Laws house on Saturday and played Poker and ate steak. I got to meet my soon to be mother in law and I love her! She is so much fun. Very outgoing and nice. I am glad that she and I get along. I don't think I could handle having TWO mother in laws that hate me.

Sunday I invited my FIL and his wife and my mom to lunch. I made my yearly corned beef and cabbage. It was delicious. It was great company to. We all sat around the table laughing and sharing pictures.

As for my diet.. I did great this weekend. I drank a TON of water and kept my portions small. I went to the gym Saturday morning and made my 40 minutes on the elliptical machine. When I got off of it, my shirt was drenched with sweat... I mean completely.. dripping even! Next Saturday I am definitely looking forward to 45 minutes!

OH!!! My hubby is doing the LL Cool J workout.. and is in week 3 now. He is looking amazing. So I was reading the book... and enjoying the pictures... when I got to the end and saw that there was a WOMANS workout!!! YES!!! So today I am totally stopping the tae bo for a month and doing the LLCJ workout instead. I need the switch anyway! I am so excited to get started today, but hubby made me promise to wait until tonight to workout with him. Kinda cool huh?

I have 6 days until my next weigh in. I'm hoping to have lost weight.. but to be honest, I don't care... as long as the inches keep falling off. Can you be 200 lbs and in a size 7??? LOL

I have to leave you with the lyrics of my favorite song... whenever I hear this song it motivates me to keep going....

Suddenly I See
K.T. Tunstall

Her face is a map of the world
Is a map of the world
You can see she's a beautiful girl
She's a beautiful girl
And everything around her is a silver pool of light
The people who surround her feel the benefit of it
It makes you calm
She holds you captivated in her palm

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

I feel like walking the world
Like walking the world
You can hear she's a beautiful girl
She's a beautiful girl
She fills up every corner like she's born in black and white
Makes you feel warmer when you're trying to remember
What you heard
She likes to leave you hanging on her word

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

And she's taller than most
And she's looking at me
I can see her eyes looking from a page in a magazine
Oh she makes me feel like I could be a tower
A big strong tower
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

Have a Blessed Day!

You'll have to let me know how this workout goes for you. And it'll be great to be following the same thing as the honey too.

I bought that book for my boyfriend! I will need to borrow it from him :)

It's great to hear that you had such a great workout this weekend, Tigerlilly! Dripping with sweat - you know you pushed yourself! LL does have a body worth envying, so hopefully both you and your husband can benefit from his book. I've heard good things about the plan. You have a great attitude about not worrying what the scale says as long as the inches are changing. Thanks for you advice about laying off the scale for a while, I think it's helping my attitude already!

Take care,

p.s. I LOVE that KT Tunstall song! It was at the ending of that show "So you think you can dance?" last summer that my husband was "forced" to watch with me. So every time I have it on the stereo, Hubby pretends he's dying and that it's bringing back horrible reality show visions. Haha.

You're so funny.
Have fun with the new workout and let us know how it goes.

I love that song too! Very positive and uplifting although now every time I hear it, it reminds me of Ugly Betty hehehe

Great post! It's so nice that your hubby works out with you! What a sweet guy! Changing your workout every now and then is a good idea, too.
