I’m Not So Big-Boned Anymore Either

July 16, 2010

I forgot I wrote that post about gaining weight. Just to follow up, I have since lost over 10 pounds since then. Last week, one of the days I was actually down to 151, almost 15 pounds lighter than 4 months ago. My weight has been fluctuating between about 151 and 155, usually around 153. I think I am about at my limit for losing with weight with diet alone. I would really like to start working out at the gym again. I have had a membership to 24-Hour Fitness since I was in high school and I have always loved to lift weights. Last year, when I weighed about 175, I tried working out again. It was awful. I remember thinking, I used to really enjoy working out and lifting weights and now it just feels like a total struggle. I didn’t get the energy rush like I did before. It took everything in me just to get my ass on the eliptical machine for 20 minutes. I couldn’t push myself or get any of the drive and motivation back that I used to have. I think part of it was that I just didn’t have any engergy because at that time I was very un-motivated. I had a hard time doing pretty much anything that involved me getting off the couch. And I think the other part of it was that I was so out of shape, I was too far gone physically to get back into that zone I used to be in.

Anyways, I think I am going to start hitting the gym that is by my work. There is a 24-Hour fitness about 2 blocks away from my job. So I think I may start going there a few nights a week, the days I don’t go see Dev, and see if I can lose the last 10-15 pounds and get freaking RIPPED! The other day I was telling Devon about how I used to be ripped and he was all, Yeah right mom and my mom cut in and said, She used to be really ripped Dev. When you were little she was ripped! His eyes got all big and he looked and be all funny and he had this look on his face like, your fat ass used to be ripped? Yeah, and I’m freaking sponge bob. He must have been too young to remember!

I Want to Yarn Bomb Too, Please

So there was a story on 9News the other night about the Ladies Fancywork Society. They are getting legitimate work through the city and are putting up an installation of crocheted floweres on a construction fence downtown. It looks really cool.

I guess they are having an open night for everyone to come contribute to the work on Saturday, July 24th at 5:00. Here is a link to their blog post with the video of the  9 News story and here is a link to the 9 News site. I can’t wait to go! I’ll post pix if I end up getting down there.
