Is that the right phrase? I guess Blogger isn't the place to display my lack of knowledge of the English language.
Some things that are on my mind:
-I bought myself a little something for the 50lbs lost achievement. It was just something little and silly. A keychain with a doctor who saying on it ("Bowties are cool"). I got it on Friday, put it on my carabiner Saturday, and then found that it was missing this morning. Efffffffff.....
-While at the church on Sunday, one of the pastors was taking some pics for the FB page. Usually he just gets the kids, but the teachers were demo-ing a game. I am in the background, and it is a fuzzy iphone pic, and I am wearing my generic spanx, but I was pretty happy with the pic! Here it is:
-Last week's weight: 235.6
This week's weight: 234.4
-I went to the doctor last Friday for a primary care visit. One of his questions was "Have you ever been in an abusive relationship?" I said "no". He followed up "Do you know the signs of an abusive relationship?" I said "Well I should hope so!". And that launched him into a 10 minute lecture/question session about domestic violence, how it starts, and when to know to get out. Glad he is concerned?
- My blood pressure was good, my weight was down from my last visit (7lbs in 2 mos, I think). He asked me what my plan was to lose weight. Not if I was trying or anything :) I told him I am working out 5 days a week and eating better and that I used to weight 290. He was very happy with that encouraged me to continue.
-I don't have a lot of weight loss comparison pictures. Mostly because no one knows I have a blog, so I don't really ask people to take pictures of me for it. But I do wear this one tank top on the regular to workout. Sorry that I don't know how to make them side by side, but I hope you can see the difference! The top one was in June, and the bottom was over Easter.
-My knees have been aching lately. Trying to find a cause hasn't been very successful. Boo. But I did an epsom salt bath today after my BRICK spin/run with Tri fit and then put bengay on them too.
-Still looking to get a bike. Might ride more this weekend, but Tri Coach Jeff said he might be able to go with me next week. Trying to decide whether to be independent and get it on my own, or wait for his expert opinion.
-My pants no longer fit. But if you have a shape like me, pants that fit well are hard to find. I have momentary given up on pants and am wearing a lot more dresses/skirts. I feel more feminine, too.
-This week is a clothes drive for a charity that gives women in need clothes to interview/go to work in if they cannot afford it. I'm hoping to give a couple pairs of pants along with a suit jacket and skirt. So glad that they are too big!
-Seriously, I cannot get enough of my lovely niece! Yesterday I was hoping to blog, but she came to me and asked if we could watch Doctor Who together. Who am I to deny this sweet face???
