Weigh In day early

Thankfully, it's a long weekend here in Halifax as we celebrate Natal Day!  I really can use an extra day off right now.  Vacation seems to take a long time to come around, when you haven't had a week off since November. An extra day here and there is refreshing!

We are leaving tonight for PEI to visit some great friends.  I am dreaming of Corona and hot favorite pass time, when visiting them on the island! Since we are leaving tonight, I decided that Friday would be my weigh in day. I didn't want  to bring along my scale and look like a total dweeb...but don't put it past me!! I have been known to go away and bring it with me.  The trip even involved an airplane ride ~giggle~!

Here are the results of my first week:

OHHHH EMMMM GEEEEEE  I lost 5.2 lbs this week!!!!!
I am in shock as I don't think I have ever lost that much in a week EVER!!! For the 6 or plus times I have done Weight Watchers or any other program,it would take me forever to lose that much!!

 In other great news I have completed week one of the C25k running program. I have started this program a few times before. I have never ever finished week one before. I must admit the first two run portions of the first week, felt like I had cement blocks attached to my legs. I literally was putting one foot in front of the other and moving at a very slow pace.  Yesterdays run felt like "old times".  I was running and my body was moving like it use to (although the jiggle of my butt and belly and boobies is there) and I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs " I am doing it". 

About three weeks ago I was driving home from Windsor and a hummingbird flew in my window.

Poor birdie! I thought it was a rock  that had grazed my head.  I kept thinking how lucky I was to not have been knocked out while driving! I was going to pull over to find the rock, as I figured it was in the back seat.  The traffic was quite heavy, and I decided to keep driving and look for it when I arrived home.  Ten minutes later I need a lip fix.  I am ADDICTED to this Cocoa lip shimmer.  There on the seat was "the dead hummingbird". What I thought was a rock flying in the window, was a poor little hummingbird.
I knew if a bird pooped on you, it was thought to be good luck. Now I am thinking this little hummingbird knocked a bit of sense in my head and has set me on my way.......whatever it takes ladies... I will get to goal.


  1. Congrats on your HUGE loss!! You're rocking it! :) I will occasionally change my WI day too if I'm not gonna be home my normal day/or I go out for a big meal the night before. ;)

    Hope you have a great time in PEI, I can't wait to have some much needed vacay either!

    When I see that number on the scale again after peanut arrives, I will be one happy girl :-)

  3. What a great week! Congrats on the weight loss and completing your first week of C25K. I got up to Week 3 but then stopped so I need to start again.
