Today was day two of smuggling the boy into the gym. I ran for 26 minutes and he did the bike and then the treadmill. He says that he wants to go again tomorrow... we'll see. I get up at 5 to go.

Work is wearing me out. we have 25 clients coming within in the next few months when we would normally have 3. I'm very tired!

We just got home from working out. Aiden was asking about what to eat after working out... he is so cute. I had to explain to him that you can't workout your muscles everyday because weight lifting tears the muscle fibers and the resting and eating protein and fruit after is what makes them big. We got in the car and he asked if scrambled eggs, turkey sausage and a banana are perfect for putting the band aids on the muscles. So here we sit, he made mine too and they're a little wet, but... the gesture.

I am no longer inthe 200s as of this morning! I'm 199 and sooooooo stoked! I've pciked up my cardio routine,

May is taking a few weeks off of work and so she will be caring for the boy which will be nice. I normally take him in the AM and I'm rushing to go to the gym, home, shower. Then some evenings I ahve to get him from work so I'm rushing then. Now, I can take my time in the gym in the AM and if I don't get there until 5:30 or 5:45, it's not detrimental to my workout. Tomorrow, 30 minutes on the elliptical, which I actually like now and then LB weights. Gotta work on my arse! lol

Off to shower and then work, it's insane there. We have the conversion coming in October and I'm nervous.

Got some new dresses today. the one that I got is a size 16 and it's soooooo cool. The other, I'm posting a photo, I love and makes me look thinner... IRL. I'm not thrilled with the pics. It's a LARGE! From Target, but it's a LARGE! Weeee! Not an XL! Oh... and the shoes. New and hot but there's not a clear pic of them.






excuse the no bed skirt... we bought that set because I fell in love with the colors... and it didn't come with a skirt! I need to ebay a plain white one.

I had a lump on my tonsil, same as when they told me that I had strep, and this morning, I woke up and it really hurt so I decided to go to the walk in clinic because they are open on the weekends. I get there, the doc looks and says that it looks awful (I already knew this... this lump on my tonsil is pretty big... maybe an inch? And filled with puss, and my uvula is now mishapen because of the swelling.... and the back of my throat is yellow.. ugh, it's nasty) and they do a strep test which comes back negative.

I am on a second round of antibiotics and I was told to take a steroid nasal spray and I have to make an appt with an ear, nose and throat specialist for a biopsy! Good lord! So weird because I rarely get sick and now... Between Aiden, May and now me, we have more prescriptions in the house than a pharmacy!

Got in the workout. And the weights, I missed my workout yesterday because of the doc and all. I love it... I love working out. I never, ever thought that I would be that person. It's soooo easy to skip sometimes, like yesterday. I had the throat in the AM, then we took Aiden to my mom's and on the way home we stopped for seafood and a wine and then watched movies until bed time... but no big. I got up this AM, had my coffee and headed to the gym. Made this workout harder than I normally would and did the weights because today was supposed to be only weights.

I see people from work there all the time.... guys. lol They don't say hello, I don't get that. Like, dude. You sit three rows over, you can't say howdy? No big, I still get in there with the free weights right next to them.

I had posted in my FB group, Lesbianage!, that I am doing the 5K and this morning I emailed all of the maybes... it was cool, by doing that, I got 2 more girls to join in! And the one chatted with me and she told me that she is doing mini tri's and that she's lost over 60 lbs since Feb. That's sooo awesome. We tend to only get a response in our group if we post that we are going to a bar or something, so it's encouraging to see that we now have 8 confirmed guests for the run. And, I might check out the mini tri thing.

Throat still hurts, but a lot better than yesterday.... I'm wondering what the heck could be wrong with me... and it's sooo weird. The throat hurts, but there is nothing else. There's no coughing, no chest pains, nothing. A little post nasal drip, but nothing more than I get with allergies. I'll call tomorrow to set the appt.

very, very sleepy. May is on a medication that is making her jerk in her sleep. In turn, I keep getting hit and when I'm not getting hit, I'm jerking awake... so I have been up since one and have to go to work... and the night before, I couldn't get to sleep until 2 and got up at 5. It shall be a long day today, I can tell. I did get a workout in which helped because I was feeling waaaaay down earlier. Perhaps it had something to do with watching 21 grams on the morning that you can't sleep? Huh? I dunno!

This was me.



And this







And this last one... is the whole reason that I started going to a WL doc.



Just interesting. That is all.

Life rough at the moment... me thinks I'm needing to go on auto pilot. Up at 5, gym, home to shower, work.... don't let work get to me. home, dinner, bed. Rinse and repeat.

Had a cheat day. Not sure what I think yet, I'm up in weight, I'm sure that it's water weight. Back on plan though.

Got TOM and that always makes me feel like I have to pee more... well, I do have to pee more. lol I hit the gym yesterday to run. I have had a block that I can't run more than 30 minutes, I don't know why! And I have not been able to get to 3.1 miles on the treadmill.. I've done it, but in the last few weeks I have not.

Picture it, yesterday, YouFit. I walk in, geared up and ready to go. I'm going to change up what I do. Two songs for warm up. Three songs at a 4.3, three songs at a 4.6, three songs at a 5.0 and then one at a 4.6, one at a 4.3. Cool down. That should get me well above 3.1 miles and more than 40 mins on the TM. I am on my second song at 5.0. I sneeze. OH NO! Ever since I had a child, sneezing is dangerous business. And I felt it. I was going to pee my pants.

I hit the stop button and jump off at the same time. I am fairly certain that everyone was looking at me. I pull my towel so that I could see what I have run. It's at 37 minutes, 2.9 miles. ALMOST! Sooo close!

I was thinking of trying again today, but that would make me run three days in a row. Today, I'll do the elliptical. Tomorrow run. Tues- eliptical, Wed- Run. Thurs- elliptical. FRIDAY- RACE DAY! Is it bad that I don't even know where to go?

My throat still hurts. A lot. It looks terrible. I have to be scoped on Tuesday. I'm nervous about it... May said that she would be there though.

I ran for 3.01 miles today, took 40 mins on the TM, I'm trying to do a longer warm up so that I can last longer on the TM and it's totally working! Also, covering the clock with a towel helps.

I haven't lost any of the cheat weight.. not sure what to think. They are totally going to yell at me at the dr! lol Unless I shed it by Friday!

My throat. it's killing me. It is sore and the worst part, other than the fact that I am always cognizant of my tonsils, is that my throat constantly feels dry. Well, I'll find out tomorrow afternoon what's wrong with me. May is going with me... I'll meet her at work and then we'll ride over together and then I'm going back to work.

I'm really, really beat. Life is really kicking the ever living crap out of me at the moment and I'm trying hard to be positive because I'm the strong one in the group. It sucks though sometimes. I want to be the one to break down and not have it together sometimes, but its not my turn.

I have to get ready for work... it's going to be insane from this week until November. LOL Good thing I like my job... although, more money would be nice.

No endoscope. Thank. God. When I got there, the girl at the desk says, "oh Lynn tee hee. I tried to call and leave a message (try?!) and um, with your insurance, if we do the scope, it's going to be 275. Plus the 160 for the visit because you haven't met your deductible yet (which, actually, I have so I need to call the insurance)". So... you want me to shell out 500 and you "tried" to leave a message the day before? You couldn't have mentioned that three weeks ago when I made the appt?! oy. vey.

So yeah, I waited one hour and 15 mins. The doc came in, looked at me and said, "Do I know you?" I almost said, "Yeah. Lesbianage. Facebook," but I refrained.

I told her that my throat is swollen, my uvula is askew and that I have taken two courses of antibiotics and do not present any other symptoms. She took a look in my throat and said, "Oooh, yeah. That looks terrible!" Little did she know, it's cleared up quite a bit. Then, "Is your uvula always that color!? Well, we have to take out your tonsils."

I am being put on Cepro for 10 days with one refill and if I clear up, I cancel my surgery. If I don't clear up, I go in November 4th.

I am also back down to my pre cheat weight! Thank goodness, it was slow going there for a moment... I just have to be patient. Speaking of, I can't go to the WL doc for a few weeks because of cash. So, I will follow the diet, I will continue to take the vitamins and I will continue to work out.. I said that I wanted to stop going to the doc when I got to 195... I got there and I didn't feel like I could do it on my own but I don't know why. I don't take the pills that they give (my boss calls them prescription meth lol). I do get the shot but it's just B12 and chromium... I can take those in the pill form. I will have no doubts. I can do this.

May has an interview Friday with my dept. God, I hope she gets it. we all need it, it would be a pay cut of 7K a year, but the lack of stress would be sooooo welcome.

I need the Fletch to get some more photos of me... I don't have anything recent. Of course, with my race on Friday, she will get pics.

Ooooh, we went to the gym just now and I did that machine that intimidates me! the one where you hang and then pull your legs up. I did it!

I ran! Well, I walked about a 1/2 mile of it because I felt like I was going to pee my pants... eesh. It was so hot. But I did it! I was trudging through the end and I saw Aiden and his green shirt. Then I saw Mazzolar. Then Alisha (frowning, per uj) then May... so that was all I needed, I booked it!

I finished at 48:02 which is pokey. This is good though, I plan on doing more and now I have a horrible PR to beat... and my next one is halloween! It's at 7:30 AM and the heat won't be like running on the north side of the sun. I can wear a costume if I want... I wonder if I can pull together a wonder woman something... that would be fun! lol

These are my cell phone pics (below), May forgot the fancy camera! lol I dont blame her, she rmembered everything else. Like swim stuff for Aiden, a change of clothes for me. Powerade Zero. An apple. So mazzolar brought her camera and I'm waiting for her to post the pics on facebook.

No weight loss in two weeks, but, I've been drinking too much wine (I need to stop that!) and I'm on more anti biotics, some really strong ones. By next race, I want to be 180. No! Nay, I will be 180!

Have to shower, but wanted to get some thoughts down really quickly... and it's raining. Again! And I can't find my lunch bag!

I haven't been to the WL doc in two weeks, I haven't lost anything either. But I haven't eaten as cleanly as I should either and I know this. I have had a glass of wine (or two) with dinner each night and have said that it's stress... Pulling a 60 hour week is hard and it's not going to change until about December. No more wine at night... I think that's the one thing holding back the losses. On the weekend is fine, not during the week. I won't panic about not losing weight until I go two weeks with no wine at night... I also need to make sure that my weekends are structured. That I'm getting in the water, my vitamins, etc.

I need to start a new running plan in order to get me through the next 5K. I want to be able to run the whole thing... and I don't want to be last for my age group (I was last for women 30-34). the fastest chick my age was 28 mins... the next slowest was 46 mins (I was 48!)... I am thinking twice a week in the gym like before. Once a week on the beach. For the love of all things holy, aside from Hawaii and South Beach, I live next to the country's prettiest beach! I am going to do that... wonder if I should run it barefoot. One of the guys in the race was wearing those shoes for barefoot runners. May and Aiden say they want a pair. lol

Non running days I will switch up the elliptical and the cross trainer with arm weights. And the ab thingy where you hang and pull your legs up. I did 20 of them the other day! That's so exciting to me considering I was scared to even try it!

I'm running late and that new client just converted so I need to get my booty in the shower.

I am having a Six Feet Under marathon and Brenda was wearing a pretty dress... which reminded me that I hadn't tried on my goal dress for some time now. It fits! I bought it 3 years ago and it's never fit.

Cooking day today... and trying to get a training doc done for work... I've been putting it off for months because I don't know what to do with it. Yuck.

May and I have been rushing all day! This morning, I slept until 9:45 which is COMPLETELY unheard of for me. Well, I had forgotten that May had to take photos of my friends' babies at 10... we hauled booty across town. That was fun, I got to hold and kiss babies. lol I keep forgetting that my friend is pregnant because I don't see her very often and she is due in two weeks, so she was super pregnant.

The photos came out well, I Can't wait for May to fix and post them. I am hoping she can make this a side business.

I missed my workout yesterday but got in a good one today. I am running tomorrow too.. .and will do lower abs... I spent an hour and 20 mins in the gym today. Amazing for me.

I have had a chest cold since Thursday... would figure that when I get a 3 day weekend I would spend it sick. It blows because I haven't worked out since Thursday either but I have a cough and don't think that I could at the moment. Now I feel guilty that I haven't worked out. blech.

I ate peanuts last night, that's not a part of my plan so starting Tuesday I will be going back to all protein (sort of like the Atkins induction for my plan).

A revelation, if you will, has happened to me today. I went to the gym... not sure if I've told you, not sure that I've even told May this, but going to the gym was starting to feel like a chore. I was getting bored I think. I changed my music, changed my routine, yada yada. I finished my 5K but was very disappointed that I didn't end where I knew that I could have two months ago... I go to the gym six days a week, I signed up for another 5K to work towards but I just haven't always given it my all because I've been on auto pilot. I haven't pushed to get better results as far as jogging is concerned.

Fast forward to today, I have this throat/sinus crap and have to have the tonsils out. I couldn't breathe all night, but that's my fault. I smoked over the weekend, knowing that I'm sick, knowing that I have the 5K at the end of October. I got my sorry butt up, went to the gym, did my abs first. Totally winded I was! Did my first set of weights and in my head I'm whining that I could just skip, I'm sick. Anyone else would stop and go be sick. Another part of my brain is saying but you were well enough to drink wine and smoke, so get on that BOSU ball and lift weights.

Then it happened. A man came into the gym, I think that I was the only one who noticed him but I actually stopped and looked. He was about 80 years old, hunched over, using a walker to get around. Took him about five minutes to get to the steps of the treadmill part and then another five minutes to get his walker up the steps.

He wheeled up to the TM, locked the brakes on his walker and got on. He walked slowly, holding on to the rails (would have been awesome had he hopped up and ran... but! that's ok!) but he was doing it.

That's when my brain said, "WTH are you whining for? So you have a little cold, so you're bored. Look at him, is he whining?!"

I finished my weights, did one more rep than I normally do. I hopped on the TM. I wasn't going to run today, I was going to walk because of how I'm feeling, but after my two song warm up, I felt like jogging. And I jogged. And jogged. A couple of times I wanted to walk and I said no. You will run through the next song. Look at that man on the TM and bike, he's still going. And in 42 minutes exactly, finished 3.0 miles. I haven't done that in a long time.

To the random gentleman that walked into my gym today, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I really needed that today.

I'm up, I feel like crap. I got my workout in though. LB weights and cross ramp... and I don't know what it is about that cross ramp but it makes me sweat like a... like a kid that is coming in from playing outside! Good lord! I think that I sweat on that thing as much as when I jog.

Aiden has his doctor's appointment this morning, May is going to take him. I am not sure what to think. When he first started taking the anxiety meds, he seemed a lot better, though it took about 4 weeks to get there. And then we had a heavenly 4 weeks. And then, we're back to the beginning. Yuck. I don't want to have him on any cocktails.

Speaking of cocktails, I have to take my stuff for this throat business... I'm taking the antibiotic, mucinex and tylenol cold. I think I smell like a pharmacy at this point. Mmmm, sexy!

Out of the 190s! Yippee! I wasn't going to weigh this morning because I hadn't weighed in 12 days (I was out of town on Friday and then I was bloated on Sat because of traveling). But I woke up with the feeling of being lighter. lol

Working out is going much better. I am doing more, getting in all weights and abs, I wasn't doing any abs. Getting in all cardio, although yesterday I didn't run as long as I wanted to because of the chest cold... it's going away but very slowly. I was in bed at 8:50 last night! I was beat and I know that it's from being sick.

I was going to hold off as long as I could but I had to buy some clothes. I got a few shirts from Old Navy and a pair of jeans. The jeans were a normal 16! (not a plus size 16). The shirts, some were large and two were medium!!!

I also managed to get into a size 36 shorts that have been in my closet for 6 years!

I just found my weight loss journal that I haven't been able to find. On 06/13, I weighed 213. Today is 09/20 and I weight 186... not too bad! I joined the gym right around the end of June as well. I think I'll start journaling again, if for nothing else, to log my workouts to see progress. I have my measurements in there somewhere too, I should keep up with those. I've pretty much stopped losing in my waist and I'm losing everywhere else.

I need more recent pics of myself, for sure. I find myself thinking that I'm still fat looking though in my pics... it's the damn double chin. I hate it. I have this from my mom, the skin is just loose there. ugh.

I had a free meal last night and I'm proud to say, I didn't finish it. Today and upped my workout. I was reading the BFL Challenge book (from 2009) and never read in the first one that every week you need a high point... makes sense. Duh. So arms, I do 3 sets of 12 at 8 lbs. Today, I did 2 sets of 8 and one of 12. Next week, it will be 1 of 8 and 2 at 12 and so forth. I ran my 5K and finished on 40:20. I want to be able to do it in 37... so I have some practicing to do. I can't wait for it to get cooler so that I can run outside peacefully. It's soooo friggin hot. Or, I guess I could just get up early on Saturday to do it.

Protein only today... gettinng back on track! I want to figure some things out about myself, like why I stress eat, why I get these feelings of giving up sometimes, etc. I've thought about seeing a therapist, since we all see a family one. Just don't know if I can afford to go to one. I will think about it though... when I get this weight off, I want it to be the last time so I need to get to the root cause of the sabotage.

That being said, I did work out today... Saturday I worked out after my cheat meal and beat the crap out of myself. Sunday, worked out, but to be honest, my heart wasn't in it. I did walk on an incline on the TM for 30 minutes and did LB, but I just wasn't "there".

Off to work today, yuck. But, it's going to be like this through May. I am going to stop on the way at DD to get them coffee and bagels, I think that they make egg whites like a torta there so I will see if I can order one without bread.

Down 2 lbs this week! So glad to see that I'm still losing without going to the WL doc. I've added nuts into the mix, one serving during the weekend. It's nice, it's filling.

I gots pics!

This is at 230





This was a couple of weeks ago, with my new wine bottle stopper.



And at the folk fest



And this one... I'm proud. So, a couple of notes. That skirt, it was tight when I was 230. It's way too big now, so I had to belt it and that's why my stomach looks weird, because the skirt is all bunched up. Also, I was dressing like Joan Jett for work. And, yes, I have a lot of skin on my arms... but if you take note, there are muscles there! Like, you can totally see the outline of my muscles if you pay no attention to the skin!
