Weight Loss Wednesday 2.11–Working out with seniors

Weight: 183.8 pounds (down 1.2 pounds from last week, down 22.4 pounds total)
Waist: 34.5 inches (down 2.5 inches total)
Hips: 40.5 inches (down 4.5 inch total)

On diet:  I would probably have lost another pound this week were it not for book club.  I was hosting, so I indulged in the margaritas and someone brought me my favorite dip (Skyline chili, cream cheese, and cheddar).  I know I should say that I regret it, but I don’t.

On NROLW cross-training:  Still no squats and lunges.  I did boot camp again on Monday and loved it still.  The margaritas the night before may have been a mistake though.  In fact, half way through I turned to the person next to me and admitted that I was regretting my life choices.  Line drills+margaritas do not mix.

Today I tried the only Wendesday fitness class I can attend: Active Older Adults.  Basically, weights for senior citizens.  I learned that old people are super sassy and do not appreciate when you assure them that you “only” run half marathons (I was wearing a Marathoner in Training shirt, which is my running group).  I enjoyed the class, but I’m not sure it’s going to be enough for my weight training goals.  I’m still searching for the perfect workout.  I could theoretically hire a trainer, but that doesn’t really align with my fiscal goals.

On running:  I have done 4 miles pain free three times in the last week!  Saturday I ran with the No Boundaries group again.  Turns out that I am actually extremely lazy and easily did an 11 minute/mile average.  I seem to run much faster if I have someone to keep up with/talk to.  Yesterday’s 4 miles sucked majorly due to the insane 20+ mile an hour winds.  I actually had to come home after the first 0.75 mile to add clothing.  I can honestly say that has never happened to me before.

Anyways, I know I’ve been lazy about blogging, but it’s because I’m busy trying to get out there and accomplish my goals.  I’m finishing The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey, which has me totally distracted.  I promise cute baby pictures on Friday.  Probably.

    I need that money book, too–I actually have a different one at home, but have I cracked it? Not so much…..

      Love Dave Ramsey! (Sarah I can’t get the comment box to work… not sure why so hitting a reply which does work.) Can’t remember if you mentioned him before on your blog or not but we follow his plan, mostly. Some things with a grain of salt. But we really enjoy it.

    Congrats on the weight loss, that’s still a solid number! I can’t seem to lose weight to save my life right now. I think maybe it’s because I continue to eat Cadbury Eggs like they “going out of style”. Dang they are good. I also run much faster when I run with a group. But can’t seem to replicate it on my own. I need a coach to push me…apparently my own head doesn’t work hard enough.

    Congrats on the weight loss! That’s actually pretty impressive considering the massive amounts of non-healthy food present at book club. 🙂

  4. Wow, you are kickin’ ass! Nice job sticking with it. I hope you are taking lots of full body photos so I can see the transformation.

    Woo hoo on weight loss and running with no pain! I have been striving so hard to find a book club I like (mainly for the food and wine). That dip has been on my list for awhile to incorporate into my new lifestyle!

    I’m still waiting for the picture proof of all this weight loss. I’d like you to make it into a gif that looks like you’re melting. Please and thank you.
