Nov 28 - Dec 3

Monday - 2 miles in 19:50 this morning, finished at 9:00 am. 154.4 at my weigh in. Hyrum lost almost 2 pounds, I gained 1 since my last weigh in. I didn't mind gaining, hoping it will help Hyrum have perspective that it is a slow process but as we are steady we will win the race
Tuesday - 15 minutes of planks with Abi, my wheels were only about 30 seconds each. Also later tonight did a little bit of upper body with Hyrum - 6 slow let downs on the pull up bar, and 30 reverse push ups, and three 30 second dead hangs on the pull up bar.
Wednesday - 2 miles this morning in 19:50, weight 151.6! Oh yeah, haven't been here since after Natalie/before Owen was born.
Thursday - 6 let downs, then did hangs for 30 seconds two times and last time I was able to do it for a minute!
Friday - 2 miles this morning
Saturday - 7 let downs, first hang was 17 seconds, second 31, last 61

Nov 21 - 26

Monday - 2 miles around 6pm, time 19:30. Ate perfectly today "Eat to Live" way (plant based) and have for past 3 days, Hyrum is my new accountability partner - Hyrum is doing a little BFL with me, today was day 1. We did this last year for a little while, he's gained 10 lbs the past year and approached me last week asking if we can try again. We can do it!
Tuesday - Hyrum did planks with me around 4 today. I did 15 minutes, he did 12 minutes and took a rest while I tried to do the wheel. Ate perfectly Marilu style, good job.
Wednesday - 2 miles
Thursday - HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Didn't over eat today but did enjoy some of all the holiday dishes with my family. :)
Friday - 2 miles
Saturday - Hyrum and I are going to focus on pull ups (cause all the BFL exercises just seem too long and boring right now.) So since I can't do a pull up, I did a slow let down 6 times. Then 17 reverse push ups, finally we both tried to just hang on the pull up bar to work on our grip - 30 seconds 3 times.

Nov 7 - 12

Monday - The Almond Joys got the better of me today. Not a full on binge but I have lost control, I shall go get my focus and start fresh tomorrow. But since I did eat some treats, I felt the urgency to get in a workout. 5:30 pm, just finished a jog on the treadmill, 2 miles in 22 minutes.
Tuesday - no workout, my neck has been killing me, can hardly turn my head. I think I'm sleeping on it wrong. Wish I had a purple mattress. Ate some candy today too
Wednesday - 2 minutes of center plank
Thursday - Woke up at 2 am feeling really dizzy, my head has been dizzy all day - a little bit like I just got off a tire swing and am waiting for the spinning to stop. Kinda weird. I haven't tipped over but have been holding on to the railings and walls when I walk around. Threw up this morning too. no workout
Friday - no workout
Saturday - no workout. It was an off week, I'll do better next week!

Oct 31 - Nov 5

Monday - no workout, but I'm proud to say I make it through Halloween unscathed - I did not have one lick, taste or bite of any candy or treats. Today is day 2 of the 21 day challenge. :) I'm focused and in the zone, and just in time too! Weight this morning 157.8, yay! Got below 158, good job
Tuesday - 12 minutes of planks around noon, 2 miles on the treadmill at 4pm - 22 minutes. Ate perfect today, had dessert for dinner - a sweet potato with 1 date and 7 pecans, so yummy. After run, weight was 157.2
Wednesday - No workout, but did have another day of perfect eating and not a lick or bite of any chocolate. Although Almond Joy's did enter my mind briefly today. I did do a lot of stairs and I moved furniture around - made a "man cave" for Corey where he can work at home, and I have a new set up too. :)
Thursday - Weight this morning was 156.6, that's a new low. No workout today, but like I said before, don't feel the same urgency to do it when I'm eating so clean. Although, truth be told, I did have one almond joy today, but I chewed it up and spit it in the garbage. Is that pathetic or admirable? My goal is to be thin and flexible. I've always thought I needed exercising to get the thin part. Eating clean works even better. I think I should start doing yoga or something though, my shoulders feel so tight, I need to schedule time to relax and breath!
Friday - New weight low this morning - 155.6, yahoo! No workout. Ate clean except some feta cheese and dressing for my salad on date night. :)
Saturday - raked leaves and mowed the lawn. Treadmill for 2 miles, first mile in 10 min, then walked a bit for the 2nd mile, total time 23:30
