UP 3.6 lbs. I think it's because I started the birth control pill. NOT COOL :O|

Eeek, WI's tomorrow. I slowed it down a bit with the exercise this last 2 weeks, earning only 17 ap's each week. We'll see if it was a good thing or a bad thing. I really felt like I needed the rest to get rid of that cold that I'd had for 3 weeks, and to heal my muscles. I'm a firm believer in listening to your body, and my body was telling me to chillax. I'll crank up the activity again this week to come. I'd like to keep my fitness level high for the race mid-April. I'm hoping to get somewhere in the 50-58 min range for the 10K. That may be pushing it, but we'll see!!!

Brodiegirl had a party last night to celebrate hers and MsBlingBling's Birthdays. Blingy made the yummiest point friendly cake ever, I had 2.5 pieces and weighed myself today...I'm down a lb because of it. That happens everytime I have cake! There were jello shooters galore, and I drank wayyyy too many. I just can't drink like I use to. It was nice to have a night out to myself with no kids, and to see these ladies because they are SO MUCH FUN! Here are pics that were taken of me throughout the night.

This is what happens when you have too many jello shooters LOL!

WI Today.....*drum roll please*.....down another 1.4 lbs putting me at 146.4 lbs. More food IS better for me. I'm eating maintenace points (30 plus flex/ap's) and losing, go figure :O)

Brodiegirl, her Dh, and I took the kiddies to McDonald's today to celebrate their daughter's Birthday. Here are a few pics of us with our cute girls. The kids had a blast! It's always so much fun when we get our crew together :O)

I failed miserably at the scale separation. It kinda sorta wasn't my fault though. I went to the doctor 2 days ago because I've had that sore throat that I posted about since the 5th, AND my 3 and 2 yr olds have come down with fevers and are really miserable. Turns out they both have strep throat, and I may too (just waiting for the swab test on my throat to come back). While I was there I decided to talk about my weight issues with the doctor, so she of course weighed me and I was 150 lbs (big surprise, been stuck there since beginning of January). She told me not to worry about my weight, said I look nice and lean and I'm very healthy. So that day I quite agreeably stopped the Wendie Plan and upped my daily target points back to maintenance (30pt). I ate a little extra because I was just starving from trying to lose the past 1.5 months. I did that yesterday too andddddd....low and behold, for WI today I'm down 2.2 lbs :O)

So more food IS better for me. I guess it's because I exercise so much. Whatever reason it is, I'll take it :O)

(Oh, and I only earned 22 AP's this week...I've been sick, the kids are sick...that's just all that I could manage to do. Oh well, better luck this week)

If I post these pics that my 5 yr old took (not the best quality), can you guess where I went last night?

Yeah...yeah, Lululemon once again :OP
Those are the Be Still pants I'm wearing, and a BBB V Neck Tee that I found there. Underneath it all is the Bounce Breaker Bra which is THE best bra I've ever owned. It's so awesome for running and working out. I couldn't be more thrilled!

7AP's earned for today, 5 for 40 mins cardio high intensity, and 2 for 50 mins of strength training.

7AP's today for my 60 mins high intensity cardio at the gym. After drinking a bottle of wine the night before I might add :OP

So, I've decided to do the Wendie Plan I'm not sure if I will do it for the whole month off from the scale or not. I will definitely do it for 2 weeks though. Hopefully it helps!

I just wanted to say thanks for all the nice comments that have been left on my blog recently. The support that I get here is just amazing, and it really does help me to stay focused. I appreciate it :O)

150 lbs even today. Yes, I know it's .4 less than last week but that means nothing to me. Not when I've been juggling this same lb for several weeks now. These are my last 7 WI's since I reached the dreaded 150's...150(todays), 150.4(last week), 148.8, 149.2, 149.2, 149.2, 150 lbs. Two days ago I was 148.4, but that didn't stick. And no it's not water retention, my rings are totally loose and I drank tons of water yesterday to prepare for my WI today.

Sooooooooooooo, I've decided I'm divorcing (or at least seperating) from my scale. I'm putting it away for ONE MONTH. It's going to be really hard for me. I am a daily weigh-er, and sometimes I even weigh more than once a day. I am sick of obsessing about the numbers though, and being ruled by the scale. I will continue eating lower points than I did for maintenance (waiting to hear from Runny if I should stick to the 26 or not), and I will also continue earning 28 AP's per week. The only change will be....BYE-BYE scale! I'm kickin' yo ass to da curb :OP

TEN AP's for today!!! That makes 29 AP's for the week. I met and BEAT my goal for this week. Woot Woot! I'm still sick. I have a sore throat and I'm losing my voice. I wasn't too sick to workout though, I ROCKED IT! I did 65 mins of high intensity cardio at the gym, and followed it up with 30 mins of weights and ab work, and then I shoveled snow tonight and did some light Yoga.

After I got home from that crazy ass workout, I stepped on the scale. It is being kind to me again. Hopefully the number I saw today sticks for WI Friday. I'll update then.

Ugh - I woke up with a sore throat this morning. I still made it to the gym for my workout. 7 AP's earned for 60 mins of high intensity cardio (treadmill and elliptical). Then I came home and did 30 mins of Yoga for another AP. So my total AP's today is 8, that's 19 earned for the week so far. Only 9 more to go! They have a fancy dancy scale at my gym, so I weighed myself just to see if *maybe* hopefully my scale at home is off. Yeah, such luck there. I was 150 lbs on the dot. What wishful thinking that was! :OP

AP's for today = 8
60 mins high intensity cardio at the gym and 30 mins Strength Training at home.

I forgot to add my 3 AP's that I earned on Friday to my blog. I like to keep track here to keep me accountable. So that's only a measly 11 AP's for the week so far. I have 3 days to get 17 more. Will I do it? I guess we'll find out :O)

As promised...showin' off the Lulu-gear, and the new 'do. In these pics I'm wearing the Carry Less Pants, a Reverse Lulu Hoodie, and I'm not sure what the tshirt is. I also bought a pair of the Reverse Groove Pants. They are in the wash so I couldn't wear them today. I look so grumpy in the first pic, but I swear I'm not :OP

Here's some MONSTER JAM Pics from last night. I took 250 of them, but only sharing a few here :O)

AND, here's a video of my favourite truck...Maximum Destruction. He rocks!

So, did dropping my points and working out do anything this week? YEP! It made me GAIN 3 LBS!

I'm sooooooooooo ready to go jump off the bridge right now. I don't even want to adjust my stats. What was the point of working so hard all week?

I think I'm going to try upping my points a little bit to 26. That's right in between what WW says (22) and my regular maintenace points (30). I may not have been getting quite enough food (thanks Gail for pointing this out). I have suspected this before in the past, that WW food amounts weren't *quite* enough for me. It could be the reason I lost so quickly throughout my weight loss journey, and why I had to add 18 pts per day just to make my body stop losing when it was time.

Hopefully this works!
