Random Musings.

1. Really looking forward to a lazy weekend with no plans. We haven't had one of these kind of weekends in forever so I'm pumped.

2. Chinese food and renting a movie is the perfect date night.

3. Had dinner with a friend I haven't seen in ten years and it was awesome to reconnect.

4. I made dinner this week and it was a success! It was my own recipe and it was easy - I just mixed brown rice, black beans, cheese and salsa and put it on whole wheat tortillas and it was delicious.

5. Said good-bye to a good friend last weekend. He's joining the army so we went to a going away party and it was great to see good friends, laugh, and play raquetball.

6. As for OGF, I'm still maintaining twenty pounds lost. It is frustrating not to see results in over three weeks but it's also good not to see a gain. I'm only six pounds away from my goal and I know I need to step it up. This will be THE week!

7. It has been snowing everyday this week and I'm so over it.

8. Garth and I are small group leaders and our group has started meeting every Monday night. We are studying this and I think it's gonna rock.

9. I've started doing the Shred again (level 2 everyday) and I love it! I missed Jillian and her crazy painful planks.

Brandi said...

Ah how I miss lazy weekends. I wonder if there is a way to plan one. haha

Great job on staying fit and not gaining. I dread getting on the scale this weekend but hopefully my measurements will tell me something different.

Jessica said...

I love to play racquetball - my fiancé and I can't get quite competitive! Lol. I think it's one of the best ways to work out and have fun.

Chinese food is just the best!

I wish you luck on reaching your goal weight! Keep it up!!! I'm glad to see you're still motivated. You're so close!

I never thought I’d see the day where someone actually said they missed Jillian. I sure don’t know if I could, ha!! :)

Congrats on maintaining!!

Jillian and her crazy sayings is more like it "Your neck is not invited to this party!"

I am looking forward to a lazy weekend also. Once I stopped focusing so much on the scale and it not moving and more on getting and staying healthy, the scale started to move. You have done an amazing job so far, don't be so hard on yourself. You will lose the weight, you have the determination to do so.

Hang in there! The weight will come off!

I read the book you mentioned a few years ago for Bible study...it was good!

I tried the 30 day Shred with Jillian in Dec and it almost killed me! But after a week, I loved it!
Hope you reach your goal this week :)

I love lazy weekends too. I know its frustrating to not be able to lose those last few pounds but for what its worth, I think you look great! Have you tried comparing your measurements instead of just your weight?
