Although a lot of good things have happened since I last posted, this post is being written from a very somber place…Sunday’s Packer game ended in a tie. Which is better than a lose since it was against Minnesota, but still. It hurts. Sorry for my absence on Friday. I wish I had a better excuse, but my Friday F-Bombs were missed due to a combo of work, lack of planning and a touch of laziness thrown in.
Let’s tie up a few loose ends from last week shall we? Wednesday started with a home workout (I honestly can’t even remember what I did) before showering and heading to Poplar Bluff. I was able to eat my sister for lunch after her dentist appointment.
I snapped this picture right after she took a bite of the Twizzler sticking out of her lemonade, and instead of the chewiness that was expected, it snapped between her teeth like a candy cane! LOL We laughed harder than we should’ve because EVERYTHING is funnier together.
While at lunch, I ran into the coworker that organized the Biggest Loser contest at work. She delivered a big wad of cash and some great news…
To say that I was excited would be an understatement. I won by 0.2%, which verified my fear that someone was hot on my heels! I am so grateful for the willpower I was able to conjure up in the days leading up to the weigh-in.
After lunch we headed to my appointment for a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound. I mentioned in my last post that I had detected a lump above my right breast, so it was time to get it checked out. Mammogram swag on point…
I cannot stress enough how important self breast exams and early detection is. Luckily for me, the radiologist thinks it is a benign growth and recommended an ultrasound in three months just to monitor. It’s safe to say that Wednesday was a HUGE success!
Thursday was a fast paced, stressful day at work. I was unable to put together a post for Friday, which I was pretty bummed about. Not only that, but I also consumed waaaaayyy too much ice cream this week. I decided to not be so hard on myself regarding either.
Saturday’s workout was an oldie but goodie. I did Kim Kardashian’s Fit in Your Jeans by Friday Upper Body and Abs DVD. I can not remember the last time I did this workout! It’s been years…I mean years!!!!!! This DVD is sneaky hard. You definitely get what you put in to it, which is safe to say about any workout but definitely this one. You could sloppily go through the motions and wouldn’t feel a thing. But I made sure to think about the muscles I was working and did the exercises at the instructor’s pace which was slow and controlled. I was sufficiently and surprisingly sore the next day.
The rest of Saturday consisted of a quick hair trim and dinner at a new restaurant with Bo and my parents. It was a really nice evening and even better food!
I did feel a bit overfull afterwards and the wine and sodium left me feeling like a puffer fish the next day. It will serve as a good reminder that I don’t want to feel that way and why this healthy lifestyle is so worth it!!
