Some good news, and some great news!

This morning I stepped on the scale...
and got some great news!

Staring back at me the scale said 161.5!! Down 1.5 lbs from yesterday! Whew! I cannot wait to get into the 150s!! My lowest weight from starting this whole thing was 159. Almost there again!

Then I got ready and headed off to the doctors to have my ears rechecked.

My appointment was at 8:30. I didnt get into a patient room until 11:00. And stupid me..I didnt have breakfast before leaving this morning because I didnt think it would take that long. It was my first time going here so I didnt know how their procedure went. I really cant complain though. Luckily I had some dried cranberries in my purse that I keep as a snack for the kids in case they get hungry while they are out. So that was my breakfast.

And I got a bit more of good news from the doctor when I finally saw him. My ear drums are healed. I don't have to worry about showering anymore. However, I still have some fluid back behind my ear drums. This could either go away on its own or could cause another infection. So we are treating me with multiple over the counter drugs to try to dry it up. If it doesn't, and becomes a reoccurring problem, I will have to see an ENT for ear tubes. Shocking because I always thought those were for little kids.

So if my blogs seem weird the next few days, it is because I am taking Sutafed, Benedryl and a nasal spray. LOL.

This afternoon I will be doing P90X Kempo. Originally I planned on doing it while the boys napped but because my appointment was so late, I opted to eat instead. LOL.

Then tonight once they go down for bed, I will run on the elliptical again. Trying to go a bit hard core because I really would love to be in the 150's by Monday.

So I was so excited about my ears and weight loss, that I forgot to add my calorie burn and exercises from yesterday.

Yesterday I did the P90X Legs back and abs for a calorie burn of 433 calories.
Then last night I went on the elliptical for 45 minutes on the fat burn mode. I was originally going to do an hour but for whatever reason my heart rate kept going to the high side of my range so I did 45 minutes instead. That burned 481 calories. So my total for the day was 914 calories from exercise.

After the boys napped today, I did the Kempo with Aaron. I am soaked with sweat right now. LOL Calories burned so far today: 459. And tonight I will probably do another 45 to an hour on the elliptical again.

For whatever reason, my elliptical usually guarantees me a pound loss a day. I have no idea why. And I have no idea why I stopped using it... wait I do. It was because we moved. Then I joined a gym and the elliptical just stopped getting used. Well forget about that! The at home elliptical is my new best friend and we have a standing date every night I am not at the gym!

Ok. Tip of the Day!


  1. Wow! Congrats! I hope you get there by Monday...P90x should do it, if anything can! :)

    I don't know if it tells you when I reply to comments, so thought I'd write here and say thanks for getting back to me about the party! It was so nice of you to give me tips about what to do and I couldn't reply on my phone to let you know how I got on. I took a pic of the buffet table, so will post it on my blog, but think of the worst food possible for a diet and it was there! Didn't succumb though haha! :) x

    1. Thanks. In all the excitement, I forgot to post about my calorie burn yesterday so I will go back and edit it in.

      I am SO glad you didnt succumb to temptation. It is so hard to resist sometimes but I always felt great when I didnt give in. I CANNOT wait to read your latest entry!

  2. Before I started losing weight I couldn't stand Avocados, now they are my #1 source of healthy fat! Amazing how our tastes change with clean eating! So happy for your weight loss, you're inspirational!
