I had a horrible night sleep last night. I stayed up until 12:30am on the computer. I finally dragged myself to bed and the girls heard me, jumped up, and wanted to get into bed. Okay, fine. We climb into bed and I'm in a great sleep, for about an hour. When one of them jumps off the bed. Then starts growling, because she wants to get on the bed! I get up, help her. Back on the bed we go. About 20 mins later, I hear dogs around the neighborhood barking. I'm like, oh great. Please don't hear them. Tooooo late! Both jump off the bed, running around the room, barking and woofing. Back on the bed. Let's jump off again, cause this is fun to keep making mommy get up at 2am! This goes on for another hour. I finally fall asleep, they are calm, and then they hear hubby get up to use the bathroom. Oh heck, off the bed and here we go again! I finally told hubby you deal with them, and I went out on the couch and tried to sleep a little more. At 6am he finally walked them, now they were happy as apple pie! Mommy goes back to bed, only to "oversleep" and be rushed for the 8am grooming appointment. Oy vey! Girls, please let mommy sleep tonight or there will be deadly consequences!
Sooo, had a GREAT WI today!!! :) I lost 4.4 lbs! Woo hoo! I am 0.2 lbs away from having lost 60 lbs since January. That also pushed me over an interim goal and now I'm a TEEN again!!! I have not seen the two teens since 2008! 217. I like the sounds of that. It is totally doable to be below 200 by the end of the year, which makes me SUPER EXCITED!!! Hubby had a good WI too, down 0.8 lbs. :) I've been mixing up my workouts a bit, 40-60 mins of different interval walking on the treadmill at between 3.0 and 3.5 mph and 2% and 6% incline. I throw in some elliptical for 10 mins when I'm bored. To celebrate today, I headed straight to the gym and did a 5K. Thank gosh for air conditioning and BIG industrial fans!! I have made a pack with myself that when I hit 200, I will start focusing on weight training more. You see, I HATE weights. I don't know why, but I really find it soooOO boring. I can walk for hours, but do weights for 20 mins and somebody shoot me!
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful holiday and long weekend!! I'm going to be sure to get some more relaxing in, as I have a crazy September coming up with work travel, big offsite meetings, etc. I just want to get through this month in one piece. Then it's time for some fun in October with not 1 but 2 BON JOVI concerts and a conference in Virginia followed by a weeks vacation with hubby to see DC for the first time. It's all good............ :)
Cheers to you and hope you are keeping on track and reaching for your goals!
