So yesterday for a few seconds I finally saw 189 on the scale. then it popped back to 190. Sigh. I do not understand why I lose weight so slowly. The math is there. I'm tracking and eating right, but still waiting. I know I've gained muscle and in the long run that will help me with weight loss. I'm so strong now. I'm really proud of the things I can do. I just wish the weight would drop some more. I will not give up! I'm absolutely committed to tracking on the trip next week. There's just no excuse for not doing it considering I use my LoseIt app on my iphone and I have it with me all the time.
Speaking of iphones.......my son had his stolen last week. Boo. Hiss. He swears it was locked in his football locker and he came back from practice to find all his stuff dumped out of his backpack. I'm bummed for him. The only reason he had one is because his dad had one, but recently switched to an Evo. Now today I have to run and get him a new phone, not an iphone this time. Maybe next year before high school. I am thinking about upgrading to the iphone 5 this fall when it comes out. I just love my iphone. I use it for everything.
I'm thinking of getting an ipad. Any users out there? My cousin has one and loves it. Now that my office software is compatible it makes sense from a business standpoint. We're getting ready for a big software conversion soon. I'm excited because the new version has so much more capability.
My legs are so super sore today. All the kicking on Tuesday really got my hips sore. I hadn't had class in over a week as the gym was closed the week of labor day. It's amazing how quickly your body gets stiff when you don't stretch. Has me thinking I should follow Shelley's lead and get to yoga. If only I had time. I really want to try it . Maybe I'll check the class times when I get back from vacation.
Earlier this summer I actually WON a giveaway from Tami at Nutmeg Notebook. I won a gift card to Tom Thumb to try their new product line, Open Nature. These are all organic, no chemical products. I finally got around to using the card and trying some products. I have to say they are very good. I got the lunch meats and their hummus. Both are very good. I also tried the ice cream. It's a bit much calorie wise for me at 140cal for 1/2 cup, but it is very yummy. The kids loved it! It's cherry vanilla and there are lots of cherries! Thanks Tami!
And now I must brag. My son is playing football again this year. He worked hard all summer exercising and lifting weights. He slimmed down and is SO much stronger this year. Here he is in his scrimmage last week.
