Week 13 is OUTTA Here and YAY, It Was Lucky for Me!

Okay, so yesterday was BUSY! I had a bunch of 5 Dollar Diva Designs stuff to do and a vid to make and a blog post and laundry and other FAB stuff that kept me busy right up until dinner time - yes, yesterday I cooked but I have to be honest, it was all microwave yesterday, still healthy but quick to make.

Once dinner was done I could FINALLY think about getting on the treadmill. I'm trying to maintain 5 miles per day because I realized on the 10th that in order to reach my 130 miles goal this month, 5 miles was what I'd have to average per day for the rest of the month. At dinner time I was at almost 3 miles for the day.

So I said, FINE. I'll go down and hop on the treadmill for just 2 miles and just knock it OUT.


I got down there and set the machine to a leisurely 2.6 miles per hour and do you want to KNOW something?

It was too slow.

So I kicked it up to 3 per and ended up doing an hour anyway (my usual on the treadmill). Which meant, of course, that I ended the day at 6+ miles.


Something's got a hold of me and I am LOVIN' it!!

And so is my scale, wooHOO!

Let's break down Week 13 with a FAB Recap:

Day 1: 270.6 - This was the end of my month 3, start of my month 4 and YAY, I'm playing at being in the 260's

Day 2: 267.6 - WOOHOO. Another threshold crossed and I'm feelin' fine!

Day 3: No Blog today, no weigh in, either.

Day 4: 268.8 - Ooops, I gained 1.2 but still happily in the 260's, YAY!

Day 5: No Blog, no weigh in!

Day 6: My day of rest, from the scale, still managed almost 6 miles.

Day 7: 266.6 - YAY. My YouTube Debut AND I'm down 39.8.

Today: 264.4 - OMG. I've lost 42 pounds in 13 weeks.

42 FREAKIN' Pounds, People.

That's just shy of 3 and a quarter pounds per week; which is a bit aggressive over all but not when you consider HOW much weight I have to lose.


I am stoked.

SOOOOO stoked in fact that right after I post this, I'm heading down to throw Mags on the bus and get right back on that treadmill. Then pool for 30. Then a quickie sauna and THEN I'm off to do more JEWELRY business.

Can you FEEL my excitement?


I want to thank everyone who is supporting me through this. You really have no idea how much I NEED you and lean on you to be able to continue this journey. Thanks again, without you, I wouldn't be ME!

Alrighty, I've gotta run. I do hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Tuesday, on me. And make it COUNT! There is just no darn good reason NOT to!

Till next time!
