I feel like a meteorologist these days, constantly listening for when it will snow again. We are due for more inches this weekend. Oh well, I will exercise inside and do some quilting.
I went to the Rec this morning to see if Thomas would weigh me. Yes Nola and Caroline, it has been more than a week. I had weighed on our home scales and it said 198. I know they are about three pounds heavy so when I couldn't find Thomas I got out the electronic scales and did it myself. 196! Yeah, I broke the barrier. Two weeks and 2 and 1/2 pounds. As in earlier blog posts-10 sticks of butter! Yee Hah! The boiled eggs and grapefruit are helping with the burn.
I know I am losing inches right now however. I needed a new pair of shoes and who would believe it, I have lost another 1/2 size there too. Strange how our bodies change.
I have a new stretch for those of you who are trying to tighten the abs. I didn't know I had abs until about two months ago. They were hidden under the flabs. Anyway, get out the big exercise ball. I love mine. Stretch over the top of it and get yourself situated so that the ball is under your shins just below the knees and your hands are straight down to the floor under your shoulders. When you are ready, keeping your legs stiff and your back straight, hike your butt toward the ceiling while at the same time rolling the ball down to your ankles. Slower lower and roll on the ball back to the knees. Try doing this 10 times, slowly. It really tightens the mainframe. I would capture it for U-Tube but it would be rated X-tra Hilarious. Better left to your imagination.
