Burned 426 calories this morning doing my Monday Cardio plus the finishers 4 sets of each from my Tues/Thurs workouts. Down 1.3# on my scale and confident that I have a loss from 2 week's ago at chapter tonight. I've already reported my weigh in's to the online loops and to Christian since I started reporting my morning weigh in on Monday only effective last week. It's easier since I have counting tonight 5 evening weigh in's left. Want to skip out tonight after weighing in but won't since our new AC is coming to give the program but am getting burned out on Subway sandwiches so will come home and eat something after the meeting.

9/11 progress photo

Taken on Sept 7th at MAC Fitness!!!


Been over a week but kept on thinking about it so decided since I have the time this morning to do so. I started taking Fiber pills and so far it's been helping. Down 0.8# from last Sunday's weigh in so should be OK for weigh in tomorrow.  Counting tomorrow I have 5 TOPS weigh in's left and if it weren't for the fact that our AC Teresa is coming to do the program I'd weigh and leave since I do have to be at work early on Tuesday. I'm not going to go to Subway with them this week as I'm getting burned out on having a Subway sandwich and chips every week for the last year and a half. Not sure I'll want to eat Subway for a while after that so plan on not joining them starting this week. For now all that was changed by my trainer in the new month is Cardio and Legs but will see after next week's weigh in if the arm workouts get changed as well. It's much easier and faster to just print my workouts than to try and put them into templates on the website. Every time I'd try and create a template after I did one or two my internet browser would freeze up on me.  I've got 6.7# to go to reach my goal of 130 so need to really focus and limit the snacking until I reach my goal then I need to maintain it. I could've very easily called my doctor and had my goal raised from 125 to 130 but I refused to do it so after talking to my trainer we've decided that my maintenance range is 125-135 but I'd like to be no lower than 130.

Been a few days since I've checked in and I let the yahoo groups weight recorders and owners know that I plan on reporting my home weigh in's starting on Monday so I never have a no weigh in for a holiday or for weather that will be nice. I was talking to one of the group owners and she's right TOPS isn't what it used to be where weigh in's started on time and we were all about losing weight and giving helpful information. I feel like I know more from the last 4 years at MAC fitness that I have the first 8 years that I belonged to TOPS before joining the gym. I'm 2.3# from getting into my healthy range and 7.3# from reaching my goal of 130. Going to try and reach it before we leave on October 11th for Colorado. Been fighting a sinus cold which is almost gone. Hard to believe another training month ends this week and a new one begins on Sunday. Plan is to write down my starting weight from Sunday then at the end of the training month on Sunday write that number down and see how much I've lost for the month. Still need to use my Nail Envy treatment today.

8/6 progress photo

Going to send this photo to Christian on Monday just in case I can't take another photo on Monday.

Top photo is from April and the bottom photo is from yesterday I think I look different but not sure will let Christian take a look at the difference on Monday. Waiting for my work schedule so I know what my workout plan for next week will be if I get in 5 days of 4 workouts or 4 days of 4 workouts 3 lifting days, 1 Cardio day and the add on workout on my legs/abs day. 24oz of water down and 96oz left to go.

I have 9 TOPS weigh in's left and we have about 10 weeks before vacation and this time I won't gain when I get home since I plan on going hiking with my dad and uncle Jon. Got my new glasses yesterday probably should've had them tightened up a little more. Bought a new water bottle at wal-mart this morning and it does keep the water cold and ice in it like the sticker on it said. Filled it with ice and water over an hour ago and it's still has ice in it and the water is still cold. Need to get back in the habit of dropping by here every day or two. I lost the 2# at chapter this week that I gained last week so I'm where I was 2 weeks ago when we weighed in at Wendy's building for the final time. TOPS weigh in I have 6.2# to reach my goal of 130 and home scale I have also 6.2# to go so I should be at or close to 130 by my final TOPS meeting on October 10th.

Noticed something on Wednesday there was a girl training with Scott and her friends was just hanging out watching. If it were me I would've told my friend "I'll catch up with you after my session and a shower" Having car issues so didn't go yesterday and didn't go today want to drive as little as possible until after Molle looks at it on Saturday morning. Got my car cleaned out a little and took out my trash then when the boil order was cancelled I filled the ice cube trays and my humidifier and also changed the filter which hadn't been done for a while. Will check walgreens to see if they sell the filters I need if not then I'll have to go to wal-mart. Just checked Walgreen's site and looks like I have to go to Wal-Mart to get my replacement filters which I need to do every month or two. Put the reminder in my phone so I can remember when to change it. Need to go to Wal-Mart and buy a couple of filters in the next few days.
