Well, yesterday was yoga again! It was actually pretty nice. Still some moves I cannot do but it's all good. After yoga I felt really giddy. Guess it did me well. Well, we also got weighed in again because we wanted to. I wanted to see if I did lose weight since my scale was saying less. And the news is...

I weighed in at 250.1!!! I was 254.3 last time so in one week I lost 4.2 pounds. I don't know how either since I ate a lot of fatty foods but some healthy this week. I was happy though :o) Amazing to me that in 1 1/2 months of working out I lost only 5 pounds and in a week I lost 4 pounds.

Unfortunetely my weight is back today. But fortunetely, it's for a good reason. I have my period. I had to take my medroxy progresterone to start it again. I started my pills the 23rd... my last pill was taken the 27th and got it today. Which means 4 days after I stopped pills it started (which is normal for me).

So, all is well. I'm pretty satisfied right now. There should be about two weeks left until Aldon comes home so I have a long list of things to do. Todays goal is to accomplish completely cleaning the living room. :o) Take care everyone.

I know I haven't posted anything lately but there hasn't been really much to say. I'm still working out often. 7 days ago I started yoga with Alisha.. let me tell you that was a challenge! Our instructor is named Chase. 5 days ago Alisha and I went to step & tone. Normally it's taught by another instructor but it was taught by Chase while the other lady was gone. She said she'd be beginners level for us... but no she wasn't! She was rather confusing. So I spent the day after sore and the day after that even more in pain. But now I feel good. So Yoga are Tuesdays and Step & Tone Thursdays.

Well... since I've started working out I've lost 5 pounds. 5 pounds on my scale that is. Alisha and I had an appointment with Chase before yoga class today. She made us "prescriptions" as she calls them. She made us each a schedule of things to do workout wise. My schedule is:

Mondays: Eliptical (aka Strider) 30 minutes and 2 sets each on the life circuit (weight) machines

Tuesdays: Yoga for the hour

Wednesdays: Eliptical 30 minutes

Thursdays: Step and tone for the hour

Friday: Eliptical for 30 minutes

Saturday: Eliptical for 30 minutes and 2 sets each on the life circuit machines

Sundays: Day off

It's rather not much IMO. Because I've kind of been doing more. So I think I may up it a little. Like maybe eliptical for 45 minutes. She said if I go on there 60 minutes to make the level higher, which I will do anyway. Chase said about doing body fat and weighing. She said we'd do it three weeks from now at our next appointment, but Alisha and I agreed we don't care what results we found out. I said it was better knowing right now and then in three weeks seeing what it is, to see what progress we made. So Chase mentioned she does like doing it right then but didn't know how we'd feel. So Alisha got on the machine first. She found out she's 5 pounds lighter on that weigher then she was on the one she normally uses. She's 175.5 pounds. Last time I weighed that little (little compared to what I am now) was about 4 years ago! She's 38.5% body fat.

Me... honestly, I weighed 254.3 on her machine. I normally weigh myself in the mornings. My machine stated 250 this morning! Roar. LOL. My body fat... 41.2%. Amazingly my tricep has the least fat... then my side tummy... then the thigh. Yuck. My tricep is 32.2, my side tummy is 49.1, and my thigh is 50.8%!! So... in three weeks from today we'll be checked up on again. Hopefully by then I see some progress. 3 weeks from now Aldon should be home too ::smiles::

That's my update.

Well, well, not much is happening here. I've been working out. I've taken it a little lighter lately because of feeling bad. But I've been working out. I talked to my mom about it... I told her I wasn't losing any weight. I told her I decided I would start weight lifting because weight lifting equals muscles and muscles make fat burn quicker. Mom told me my brother was having the same problem until he started weight lifting. My brother is 350 pounds (last I heard before he started losing weight). Our family is obese! But we're all getting down to business.

It's been 22 days since I've gotten a letter from Aldon. I was grateful for a call yesterday from my phone tree lady. She told me there's a mail drop which means good for us. Because it means the boys will get mail from us and we'll get mail from them! So that's in a week or so I'll hear from him still. It's amazing how long he's already been gone. I still am not used to it.

That's pretty much it. I've started doing more cleaning up and projects but it'll be a while. That's all I really can do here alone.
