Weigh-In Wednesday, er, Sunday

Withings scale

Woohoo! I'm back down to my lowest weight from a few weeks ago! I'm down 5lbs in 2 weeks, but really I just lost the weight I'd gained Thanksgiving week and the week before. I finally feel like I'm truly back, and in that good place I was a couple months ago. I will be seeing 150's very soon! I busted my ass all week, never having a day below 10,000 steps on my fitbit.

Woohoo! Only took me 1.5 years.

I had great intentions and wanted to post more often, but we're in the middle of refinancing our house to knock our interest rate by almost half. The appraiser came Thursday, which meant not only scrubbing my 4700sqft house until it shone, but also organize every room and closet. We have two bedrooms in the basement that are pretty much just storage right now, and had things dumped there when we moved in 5.5 years ago, and not touched since. I found some gems from my baby days with Abby, including a notebook detailing my labor by time; a graph paper notebook with a handmade color-coded graph that detailed every minute of Abby's life for MONTHS; AND a binder with sections for notes with times, a feeding log, and typed excerpts from various books showing milestones and dates. I was a CUH-RAZY first-time mom!

Now that my house is the cleanest it's been since I got pregnant with my twins and the appraisal is done, I have time to blog again. LiveFit is going well. I ended up stretching week 1 into two weeks because I got busy, and I'm learning I'm not going as hard as I should. Sure, I'm a little sore after working each body part, but not uncomfortably so. I can feel myself holding back during the workouts, and I definitely need to step it up!

The highlight of my week(s) happened yesterday. A friend and I took the kids to Goodwill, and I found a pair size 8 jeans that I thought of buying, but my 10's had been feeling a bit tight lately so figured I was way out from being able to wear them. My friend convinced me to try them on to at least see how they'd eventually fit, and if they were worth buying. I not only got them on, but ZIPPED! I busted an internal organ, and had some MAJOR muffintop, but they still zipped! I'm hoping to be able to wear them comfortably in a few weeks. At $4.99, I had to buy them and they're now hanging on my closet door to motivate me when I want to slip.
