I'm still fighting my illness, but I called the doctor's office back today and got a different prescription. I'm trying to be hopeful. I was able to go back to the gym yesterday and today. I'm definitely not at 100%, but I was able to do water aerobics both days. I just keep reminding myself that I'm getting healthier which will mean less illness, less medication, and a happier Amy!
You should be able to tell by the title that it was weigh-in day! This one was extra BIG. This was the first Biggest Loser weigh-in for elimination. To say I wasn't nervous, would be a lie. To make matters worse, I wasn't able to go workout at 6am due to a "flareup". I'm proud to say Shirley still went and worked out! (She's a beast!) Plus, I was able to stop by on my way to work and weigh-in.
But I digress . . . results, results, results . . . what were the results of our first Biggest Loser Weigh-in?
Amy - down 10 pounds! Woot! Woot! I lost the 2 I gained last week, so I am back to negative 27 pounds in 8 weeks! That's 3.5 pounds per week - very good!
Shirley - down 10 pounds! Woot! Woot! That means we get pedicures! (That's our reward for every 10 pounds we loose.)
I am also working really hard at getting my fruits and vegetables in each day. Yesterday, I had 3 servings of fruit and 6 servings of vegetables. Today, 1 serving of fruit and 5 servings of vegetables. I'm finding that it is a lot harder to get my fruit servings, but I will keep working on it!
