Totally Unprepared

See -- this is what happens when you don't make an Excel Spreadsheet with your packing list -- you forget to pack your tennis shoes, socks, & sports bra. So . . . I went to TJ Maxx last night and bought some cheapies.

I'm at mom's, so I'm not supposed to leave the house, so I'm about to experiment with her walking video. That's right -- an exercise video for walking. I'm going to . . . walk in place??? I have no idea, but it's what I got. If it's completely lame, I'm just going to take Harley (her gimpy three-legged German Shepard) to the high school track after dinner tonight.

Oh yes, since I'm on vacation, I missed my technical weigh-in Wednesday. But according to my mom's scale, I've lost 21 lbs! (Don't get excited.) I like to tell myself that it's an accurate scale and that while at the lake drinking more beer than breweries can keep up with and not exercising or eating actual meals (just junk food on the boat, and drunk food at midnight) that I lost an additional 12.5 lbs. I'd like to tell myself that, but really, it's just a bummer not knowing how much actual damage was caused over the weekend.

I did swim a lot and walk those bitchin' straight vertical stairs from the lake to the house about 4 times daily. (I lost count of the stairs, but the last set was the worst, and there were 21 of them!) And Drew, Dana, and I had a Dance Party USA on Monday night. But, even all that, couldn't offset the mass quantities of Michelob Ultra over 4 days. Well, I guess 2 days (I abstained on Sunday & Tuesday).

I'll let you know how the Walking Diet DVD turns out in the new sneaks with a busted toe . . .

Weigh-In Wednesday

Weighed in today - lost another pound; for 8.5 lbs total

Walked the bitchin' trail behind Hollee & Bill's last night w/HO & BO. We "went left." It's a loop. We usually go right. Going left means you start out going up this crazy steep and long hill, and then you turn a corner and think it's leveling out, but no -- it gets steeper. I couldn't even look up. I just had to stare at the ground and get it done! Jogged a little at the end when the trail levels out.

Prolly won't do anything tonight b/c we're going to the Comedy Club at Attitudes. Maybe just some 8-Minute Abs since that won't make me sweaty.

I didn't check my BP today b/c Hollee was in a meeting when I went, so Brandy just let me weigh myself. Didn't get to take new measurements, either, b/c the tape thingy is at Hol's office. I think I'm gonna stop by Walgreens on the way home & buy one for myself.

I Report that I Have Nothing to Report

I don't work-out on the weekends. Although, I should consider my massive house cleaning on Sunday a work-out, b/c I was sweating like a stuck pig and I was doing it from 10:30am - 3:30pm.

I did that Body Sculpting show again yesterday, but like I said before, I don't think it's enough. I mean, the moves are hard, but it's only 30 minutes. But, it's better than nothin' which is what I was doin' a lot of before!

My meals are still good -- I've converted Chris to eating whole-wheat pasta & ground turkey instead of ground beef. He doesn't even realize he's eating reduced-fat meals. :o)

I'm a little worried about the lake this weekend - eating & drinking. I already told Dana that I was steering clear of the beer. But, I know at some point, I'll have a few.

Going to Hollee's today for dinner -- her dad is in town visiting. I have to update my calendar there and I might get her to measure me to see if any measurements have changed in the last month.

I weigh-in & BP check tomorrow.

Also, an update on my brother, Shaun, who is losing weight, too. He lost 2 lbs. last week (he weighs on Mondays), which I think brings him to 11lbs total!
