Olympic Weigh In Time

Over at the Sisterhood of Shrinking Jeans we have been participating in a little Olympic competition ourselves! It has been fun and I have found that I am a lot stronger than I thought I was. Last night I did the Plank Hold and did it for 1 minute and 57 seconds. The last time I did Plank Holds on a regular basis I was only able to do it about 45 seconds!! I have really improved over the past year and that made me proud of myself! The last time I looked at the record board Karena was leading the pack with a standing of over 3 minutes!! All I have to say to that is "holy cow"!! My arms hurt like crazy today and I did it for a full minute less than she did!! She is obviously alot stronger than me!! YAY Karena!!

The Olympic games have been fun to watch on tv this week, although I haven't been able to watch nearly as much as I want to. But I do have to workout myself and care for my family....and sleep...such a drag!!

If you are of the competitive nature and want to participate in our Olympics come on over to the 'hood and sign up. Anyone can join and they are even giving medals!! Not to mention the sheer joy of participating in something good for you!! it's time for the all important weigh in for the week. I didn't really know what to expect so just got on and looked down....

Last week: 188.8
This morning: 188.0

So I am down half a pound and happy to see a number that is LESS than last week! This is the first week in several that I can say that.

I have been working out harder (especially doing the Olympic competitions with the girls) and have been trying to eat more carefully...meaning thinking before I stick something in my mouth! That doesn't mean that I have cared what I have put in my mouth, but at least I am thinking about it!

The Sisterhood is starting a new challenge on the 24th (next Wednesday) and we are doing teams this time, so I hope ya'll will join in. It's always fun to compete with others while losing weight!! If you want to join in go over and sign up...May the best team win!! (The one I am on, of course!!)
