Day 16.

Half way done with the "game".  So far, so good.

Let's get the business out of the way, shall we?

First thing to note is that I got a perfect score in our game this week.  Mostly because of...
Weight check-in:
Starting weight (this week): 211.2
Goal weight for week (1%): 209.1
End weight:  208.8

Total weight loss (since start):  6 pounds 

Yay!  Right? Again...the scale was my nasty friend.  It would go down, and then up and then {luckily} down again. Right now the batteries are low and I need to replace them, so that is probably a good thing since it will prevent me from jumping on that scale every day.  

Not my feet.  Or my scale.  But a good reminder, none-the-less. 

So, onto some fun.  

Or funny stuff.  

At this point my exercise requirement has been fulfilled by Jillian Michael's "Shred It" video.  I moved up to the 2nd level this past week and it provided a nice change and I actually enjoy the variety more than the first level. 

I would love to be outside running, but the temp has barely been getting above 40*F, and that is my limit for running outside.  I'm allergic to the cold.  Have I told you that before?  I'll share more about that at some point.  I know.  I'm an odd duck. 

Yesterday, though I thought I would try some yoga.  When we were back in Minnesota over the holidays I bought a yoga dvd set.  Come to think of it, I think I had a yoga video back in the day...it collected dust.  

This one?  Not the case. 

And I had helpers.    

 J#4 making sure to stay hydrated.  J#3 helping my yoga become "high impact". 

At this point I was rolling back onto J#4 and she was belly laughing.  Which made me laugh.  Which made for a good work-out all around.

Eventually the kiddos lost interest,  and I finished after about 35 minutes.  Yoga.  It's no joke people.  That is tough stuff.  I definitely enjoyed it and will keep doing it.  But I was back to Jillian today. 

She burns more calories.

40??? The high here has been 25. I'm right with you about running outside. Not. For. Me. And I'm not even allergic - just a cold wimp.

Keep up the good work!
