Seeing Cate Blanchett give a handjob to that statue was the highlight of the SAG awards.
healthy weight loss blog! lets do this together!!
This is how they do casual Friday at my Starbucks.
cycle 1, day 17
I haven’t been able to get past 6 lbs lost this time and it is really starting to piss me off. Today is the last day of cycle 1 and I am hoping that the cycle 2 “confusion” will kick things in gear. So frustrating. I need to get another 10 down to be at my last low point. I would like to go at least 5 more than that though before my reunion. I have really been lagging on exercising and I am pretty sure that is a big factor in being stuck too.
Cycle 1 day 7
Down 6lbs so far. Been holding steady with the diet. Gradually getting less hungry. 41 days til the reunion. Very happy that our summer vacation up north will be right when we head into cycle 3 instead of the beginning of cycle 2 like last summer. That was a rough trip. I gained back half of what I had lost and had to go back to cycle 1 for a week. At least I should be pretty well down to my goal weight by then and will have an extra week between the end of the vacation and the reunion to go back to cycle 1 if need be. I would really like to hit a size six by then. I am an 8/10 now depending on the clothing. I’ve got this amazing little black velvet burnout dress that I bought a million years ago and swore someday I would fit into. I was able to fit into it when I hit my smallest point last year. I think it should be quite comfy after this go around.

reunion countdown: 45 days
Back on the wagon ;-)
My 20 year reunion is in 6 weeks so today I am back on the 17 day diet so I can be lean and mean for it.
What I ate today:
2 greek yogurts
1 chicken breast
Want to work out with a buddy? Try some of these exercises:
- Handclap plank - both starting off on the ground, raise yourselves up with one arm and slap hands, alternating each time.
- V-sit side touch & pass - never declining and holding the v sit, twist and touch both sides and then pass the mediball off to your partner. Both must always twist and touch.
- Mediball crunch - get your partner to stand over you and lock your feet into their legs. Crunch up, pass the mediball to them and come back down, then crunch up and grab the mediball again, repeat.
- Crunch & stand - Crunch and using your core stand up, throw two punches when you reach the top, then lower yourself back down. Make sure your partner gives you a slight pull on your legs when you’re coming up!
Have fun with these!
