Wii Fit

Ok, so I haven't abandoned my quest to lose weight, but you'd think I had by looking at this blog. Sorry! I'm here, I'm in about the same place as last time. BUT...

WE GOT A Wii FIT!!!!!

It's our Christmas present to each other. It came yesterday and we started trying it out today. Yes, we're worse than kids when it comes to waiting for Christmas presents. The only difference is we're adults and we can open 'em early if we want to. LOL!

I'm so excited! My husband has been working out with it for over an hour...tomorrow I'm going to try to wear myself out trying out as much of it as I can. Yay for virtual trainers.

Speaking of trainers...I'm still meeting with one. We did a 2 hour workout on Tuesday morning and I'm still in pain. I love this kind of pain!

2.7 down...sort of

I gained weight on vacation, 4.1 pounds to be exact. Yucky, huh? I knew I wasn't good. But I'm already 2.7 pounds down from that so I'm on my way to getting back to where I was so I can work on losing more. But I'm happy. I lost that weight on a week where I only went to the gym twice because I was sick. Not the kind of sick where you can't eat, so I still ate. So yay for my body being nice to me for a change.

I'm looking so skinny...hahahahaha

Ok, I just have to laugh at this. I was at the store earlier today. I was (am) sick, grumpy and feeling rather frumpy in my baggiest jeans and one of my husbands sweatshirts, no makeup on and wearing a ball cap (you get the picture, it's not pretty). But this lady, that I vaguely recognized came up behind me in line and said.....

"You look so skinny! You've lost so much weight, you look great!"

I was a little taken aback and I honestly think she has me confused with someone else, unless the last time she saw me I was preggers. She seemed serious, so I don't think she was being a sm@rt@ss. But I'll take the complement and pretend it really was for me.

Vicky sucks!!!

I'm watching The Biggest Loser right now and VICKY SUCKS!!! Sorry, but she's rude and cocky and annoying and I'm ticked that she can't go home tonight. Gah!!!!!!

I'll update more on me later. I've had a rough time lately with being out of town and now I'm sick. I know...again. Gah! LOL!

Gluttony, Pure Gluttony

Sorry I haven't been around and posting this past week. We went back to Utah to visit family and friends. I hadn't been back in 7 months and my husband hadn't been back in 22 months. Needless to say, there were a lot of things we wanted to see and do while we were there. Of course, that included a few restaurants that we just had to go to. It was gluttony!

I was good at Bajio's grill. I had the chicken green chile salad. So dang good! But when we went to Tucano's Brazilian grill there was no being good. Sure, I stopped eating before I wanted to. Maybe that's why I wasn't in pain like my husband and dad were. But it was definitely a much bigger meal than I've eaten in forever. Then there was Las Tarascas (sp?). It has authentic tacos al pastor that my husband loves. They remind him of his mission in Mexico. And our last stop was Pudding on the Rice. We ended up brining that home to Colorado in a cooler, so I have it sitting in my refrigerator right now. Oh...and this was over the course of a few days. All that food in one day would kill anyone. LOL! On a better eating note...our first night there we had a party at my grandparents house with some of my cousins and their cute little kiddos. My grandma made her homemade veggie soup. It's my favorite soup in the whole wide world! So that night I ate really healthy. :)

I think this week we'll be eating a lot of stir-fry chicken and veggies in Yoshida sauce with brown rice. We both need to get back on track.

And someone please give me the will power to toss most of the girls' Halloween candy. We didn't even go to that many houses and they have a ginormous bowl full. Gah!
