An extra gift for the finale…

I can not believe mother nature showed up right before the finale.  I am so bloated i have tried everything today, eating no sodium, drinking lots of water, taking vitamin B complex..  I am hoping for a good weigh in i would hate to weigh in the last week and have a crappy number.  I weigh in at work today for a 2 pound loss, it put me at 224.2.  MVBW i was at 225.2 last week so I really dont know what to expect.  I can not believe its on the live news what was i thinking doing this?  Now i need to figure out what i should do.  I kind of think i need to keep going for 3 months…I need to get to 200 for my mental state….time to think think think……

The last push…

Last week’s weigh in at mvbw was a great one i was down 3.2 pounds.  i was very happy with that.  I really upped my protein that week and i worked out at next level every chance i could get. 

Since Wednesday, i worked out at next level on Thursday and tonight.  Friday i was running around packing for camping and Sunday the kids were nuts.  I tried to walk when i could while camping…..Saturday i think i did good!  We climbed Bald mountain . 



I had Emma strapped to my back both up and down.  Ironically Emma weighs just about what i lost this summer on MVBW.  I dont want to weigh that much again.  It felt good when i could set her down!  It was a good cardio workout but it wasn’t as intense as bootcamp.  My heart rate was up and i was sweating but my muscle were not burning. 

I am really loving this level of fitness i am in.  The finale weigh in is less than 48 hours away. It will be on the live at 5 news which is kind of stressful.  I need to figure out what to do next.  The cost at next level is high but i did a cost compairson to other trainers and i think its on track.  But i have to drive 20 minutes each way and when winter gets here its going to be hard.  So i am just not sure what to do at this point. i am hoping for a fairy godmother…

Think thin, weigh in thin!

8 Days and counting

One week from tomorrow is the final weigh in.  I am hoping for good numbers this week and next but I am more of a consistent loser!! lol  I need to work hard this week, we are camping and i am hoping to do some major hiking.  Lets just hope the weather changes!!!  No cheating for the next 8 days.  I am a bit hungry right now.  but i am thinking about going to bed.  My official weigh in this week at work has me down 1.6 for the week.  i hope i can stay str ong after mvbw is over,  I need to figure out where i am going to workout.  i just can not afford Next level performance right now.  My tenative plan is:

  • Work out at the gym at work 2 times a week and the rest of the time at home. 
  • Look into getting a trainer from YMCA and maybe taking a class there or at Clinton via BOCES.
  • Eat right and workout
  • Get below 200 and go back to Next level in the spring to become toned and stronger

To win my 20.00 bet at work i have to lose 5.2 pounds in the next 5 weeks.  More updates to come

Morning push

My offical weigh in this week (I use works numbers) was 227.4;  I am down 36 pounds for the year

This week i realized that I still have 16 pounds to go before i reach the weight i was when i got pregnant with Emma.  I actually thought i was 220 when i got pregnant but i was 211.  I will get there this is quiet a journey i am on.  Come back from vacation and working out again has been intense.  Last week was all core work.  This week was all arm strength with crazy cardio.  Our happy hour friday work out was a ladder that contained burpies.  I am very sore this morning, but thats good!  I will not get to workout till tonight, we have a birthday party today.  I have to be good there is only 1.5 weeks left in the MVBW competition. 

I made an interesting breakfast this morning.  I just can not eat eggs anymore on my no carb days.  So i am having a protein drink made with Prograde protein, skim milk, blueberries and coffee.  Mix all, stir and drink!  Its my version of iced coffee from DD!
