Weight Loss Wednesday

I have added working out back into my schedule. My legs feel like jello. But, it's a good thing. I am down yet another two pounds. Woo to the hoo! I feel pretty darn good. But my muscles, they are sore. So I also feel I need a massage. On Monday, I did one of my workout videos. Patch thought it was awesome, and tried to do some of the moves. He looked a little better than I, as much as I hate to admit that. My body is not so used to moving, and my hips have not wiggled at all in the past year. I went to my Zumba class yesterday and felt as awkward as a 13 year old girl at her first school dance. The instructor kept saying "Jana, just shake your hips!" Sadly, everytime she said that, I thought I was shaking my hips. We have another appointment with the YMCA playroom this morning, and I am going to spend some quality time on they elliptical while watching The Gilmore Girls.

Today is our first day with Flower in 2 weeks. The family has not seemed complete. At breakfast this morning, Mini-me said: "Are we finally getting Flower today?" Two weeks is a long time without your sister, especially when you're six. Even though the kids are excited to be reunited, I'm taking bets on who cries first this afternoon. My money is on Mini-me.

The elliptical is a great calorie buster yet kind to the joints. I love it.

Hurray for you Jana! I made Wednesday my Weight Watcher Weigh in day too. I was down 4.8 lbs today, which was totally awesome for me. I've not had a significant weight loss since December. I do the elliptical every morning myself. I'm lucky though because it is here at my house. Just up and down the stairs on on the thing. I've been pushing myself the past month and I'm up to 3.5 miles in 30 minutes at a level 7 resistance. That makes me tickled pink because if you knew what it was when I started doing it in September you'd understand what a huge accomplishment that is for me. :) Today I got my 16 weeks attendance charm from WW. It felt good.

I think I may have found the weight you lost. I need to kick it out of the house myself, especially since the weather is nice again and I can finally get back outside for walking more often.

Okay, Vonna, you totally took the wind out of my sails. I can now do the elliptical for 45 minutes at level 4 -- and thought I was really smokin'. No wonder you're down 4.8 lbs! Congrats. (Jana's mom)
