And down we go....

woke up this morning back down to 166.5...
I have no idea what's going on...water retention...gnomes living in my ears?
Who knows.
In any case, I went to the gym for my elliptical workout.
I burned 715 calories...
Then I did upper body toning...
200 situps
36 reverse pull downs
lower back machine
36 modified push ups.
I think I may make this a tradition...kick @ss workouts on holidays...
Instead of stuffing my face...works for me.

I felt much better...
Am still hungry.
I assume this is because Tom is near bye...

anywhoozle...
I had a good day,
It was beautiful here.
We colored eggs and then did an egg hunt in our front yard.

You know, I kind of skimmed over playing tag yesterday.
I really played tag.
My eight year old couldn't catch me.
I was weaving in and out of playground equipment, you name it.
I was pretty fast.
I fit down one slide and sophie says "You couldn't fit down that last time."
I don't really remember if I could or couldn't...
But apparently she remembered.

I hope this whole 'hungry' thing subsides a bit.
anywhoozle..
Hope everyone had a great Easter.
We did.
hugs,
Chris

I feel you on the hungry. Lucky for me my hunger has subsided.

Sounds like a great day, not to mention a butt kicking work out!!!

I like the idea of workouts instead of food on holidays... wish my gym had been open. Got some other activity in, but not the same though.

That's awesome that she noticed you fit on the slide now & didn't before. I think its moments like that that remind of why we are truly doing this! :)

Ice Queen said...

How fab is it that you fit the slide?!?! Yay! You!

I'm looking forward to the day I can slide, again. And swing on a playground swing. Even as an old broad I love swings, but, well... lol

I have my hongry times, too. I do the best I can to get through without going on a feeding frenzy. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose. lol But I am winning more and more often. Hang tough, this too shall pass.

I am happy that I no longer have to worry about good old TOM. :D

WOW. I thought I used to do killer workouts, but I've got nothing on you. Don't worry about 2-5lbs discrepancy in weight.. a few lbs here and there is probably just water weight. :)

Awesome blog!

I love the gnomes in the ear theory! Your workout made me burn calories just reading and imagining the intensity. Great job!!!
I really enjoy reading your writing, it is a pleasure!
My best always
Sean

the best gift you can give yourself is the ablility to keep up with your kids or have them not be able to catch you :-).

Finally catching up after my days on end of wet vaccing...

My favorite line of the last few posts:

"I feel like I am chipping on Granite with a spork."

My life described.

The whole hormonal thing is soooo hard but I love, love, loved your post about when it gets hard. 'Cause you know I know what hard is... the whole spork thing.

Crazy! If you drink the whole aquarium, the fish die! Fish killer!

M Pax said...

Gnomes are messing with us at all times ... hey that's a great story idea. Thanks! :D

Glad you had a great day and a great workout. I wish I could get at it. My back is not letting me. Siiiigh! My husband insists I quit being stupid about it too. Men! LOL

But to live again without the scent of BenGay in my nose would be nice.

Yay for the disappearance of water retention gnomes and fish killing aquarium drinking binges . . .

Glad you had a great Easter and I love your Holiday tradition idea. :D
