I love me!

Well, I don't get to say that enough. But for just a minute I'd like to say that I love me. The scales is slowly turning into the loosing mode. My last measurement made me say, Yey! Yesterday I got on the scales again and it said -1.3 lb. That puts me into under 200 zone and it feels great. I haven't been under 200 since my 8th month of pregnancy with my number 1 and that is at least 2.5 years, so I'm loving it.

Last two weekends I did get on the bike and rode it for 30 minutes or so, so, I guess, I did my next step and now just have to continue a great job. Yey me!

I am loving WII Active More workouts and it is so much cooler than the first one. The warm up is a combination of few exercises (in the first one it was mostly running and I hate running). As a cool off instead of running it is stretching and recovery. I overall like it a lot.

I recently came to the realization that I can actually run without hating myself. I might not like it much, but now I can actually run instead of doing this fast duck walk thinking I am going to start running...yes, I will...I need to stop and catch my breath...I hate myself...

So I loved my results and yesterday I actually put on a swimsuit instead of workout pants. It is a two piece that covers more than one piece, but it's a start. I can see that my legs are overall toned. I still have a long way to go, but my hips are not sad looking fat blobs and I proud of them.

Did I fall off the wagon?

I haven't wrote anything in a while. Does it mean that I miserably failed my challenge. Not really

Because of the trip to Canada I had a lot of catching up to do. Also the work kept me working and the baby is being teething really bad (today is Day 3 of his fever).

I skipped couple workouts last weekend, but, finally, yesterday I finished my 30 day challenge with WII Active. It is exciting and I decided to celebrate it with sandwich. I am joking, but I did have a sandwich and my body is not liking me too much right now.

Clearly, I am just over 2/3 of my challenge and 5 days overdue for the measurement. Will really try to do it this weekend and - oh, gosh - I still owed myself a bike ride. Forecast is promising rain for the next 6 days and that doesn't leave me too much of a chance.

However, I recently got WII Active more (second part of WII Active) at 50% off, so I would consider it my second reward. I also did some major clothes shopping. I can actually find some clothes in size medium that fits me. Yey me!

Today is the day I open my WII Active More and take a first look at it. This is is targeting more of a abdominal areas, but I am not sure if the cardio still there, so I might have to customize it, because I'd like to have cardio-abs-yoga/pilates combination, so I just might get creative

Good news! I am back
Bad news! I gained 2 pounds

Maybe I wasn't supposed to get on the scales, but I did. Just wanted to get to see the results of my trip. Well, I had 4 ice creams - 3 of each I got in a form of my ice cream cake for my birthday.

My WII program said that I blew my challenge but I wasn't planning to take the game on the road with me. I had my hands full, but I am back now and the first thing I should get back on track
