I am so sick and tired of the cold, snow and delayed school openings. When there is a delay, Hunter gets on the bus at 9:00 and Hayley gets on at 10:00. This messes up any plans I might have had for the mornings and deprives me of my extra “kid free” time.
This morning I had an appointment at the gym with my trainer for 9:30. As soon as the call came at 5:25 am that told me there was going to be a delayed opening, I knew I was doomed. I really wanted to go to the gym because today was weigh in day. I texted my trainer about the situation and she responded back with a cancellation she had just received. I was able to go work out at 10:30! I was so excited. I got Hayley on the bus and then I went straight to the gym. I warmed up on the recumbent bike for 15 minutes and then met with my trainer. I worked on legs today. Now that I have been weight training for a while, Jess is starting to challenge me more. I did upper body on Tuesday (my arms felt like lead yesterday), and today I worked on my legs, abdomen and hips. I definitely know I will be sore tomorrow, but it is a happy kind of sore. Finally, I did a half hour of cardio before returning home.
Once I was done weight training, I was ready to be weighed…….. I knew I did really well with my eating so I wasn’t too nervous. I got on the scale and found out I lost 3 1/2 lbs.!!!! This brings me to a total of 25 1/2 lbs. I am extremely happy as I am getting closer to wearing ” the dress” that has been hanging in my closet, encouraging me to keep on course each day.
Hopefully, the snow and really cold weather is behind us now. I look forward to beautiful, warm, sunny days and for the first time in years I won’t mind showing my arms, especially while wearing “the dress”. 🙂
