The Weigh-In Week 63

220! That's what it said on the scale this morning. A gain of one heck of a lot!

Not a lot of time this morning due to car trouble and another chiropractic appointment, so I'll just say, I am darn glad this week is over and I am looking forward to a fresh start on Monday!

Have a great weekend everybody.

Guess How Much I Weigh Contest - Week 63

My back is starting to feel better. It's got a little ways to go but at least I'm not wincing in pain every time I stand up.

Unfortuntley it seems one of the side effects of all the Advil I am taking is....well let's just say things aren't move any too fast.

So I am kida bloated at the momment... and I have no clue how that is going to effect weigh-in, but I can't imagine it is going to be good.

Step right up, step right up.
Guess how much I weigh and win a fabulous prize.

To Recap:
Every Thursday I give you my stats for the week and you guess what you think the scale will say on Friday morning. The winner is the first person who guesses my weight / weight loss for the week without going over or the person who is closest without going over. Go ahead and click on comments at the bottom of this post and leave your guess.

I will post the winner when I post my weight on Fri. morning. If we get ten or more guesses I will have a prize for the winner.

Let the guessing begin. Good Luck!

Good News, Bad News

I had every intention of posting yesterday...but yesterday turned into one of the crummiest days on record. In fact it started out crummy then had some crappy piled on and ended with a whole load of pure suckiness.

The worst news is my back is out again. After painting the house all day Friday and Saturday I woke up with a sore back on Sunday and by Monday I was barely able to get off the couch.

I landed at the chiropractor yesterday and I am feeling a little better but it's looking like no running again this week.

Which really sucks because I had an awesome run on Sunday. I made my first 7-mile run!!! My dad and I hit the road on Sunday morning and made a 7-mile loop in 1 hour and 14 minutes. No records were broken, but it was an amazing run nonetheless.

I know I keep saying this, but never in a million years did I think I would be running 7-miles.

I am learning I really like having someone to run with on these long runs. Since we were running a slightly slower pace, my dad and I were able to chat the whole time which made the miles fly by.

I think I am going to have to find some running partners for my Sunday runs.

The other big news this weekend was my daughter Ellie attempting to water ski. Did I mention she is only 2-1/2?

I'll post some pictures and tell the story later. Busy week here in The Twin Cities! And I'm not even protesting the RNC.

I'm off to the chiropractor again.
