Friday Five

Well hey there blog world. Anyone else happy that it is Friday? I came down with a 24 hour big or something Wednesday and felt like death was upon me Wednesday night, I started feeling better yesterday afternoon and think I am in the clear now. Good thing too, because my first thing for today is….

1. I finished T25 Alpha this morning! I did have to skip the cardio work out yesterday morning due to the fact that I probably would have passed out and died since I hadn’t eaten anything since Wednesday at lunch.

I start Beta on Monday morning. While I haven’t really dropped any ell bees (damn you Shaun T!) I have seen some great improvements in my abs, thighs, calves, and lower back. Soooooo I must be doing something right.

2. The battery in my scale died this week. I have no plans on replacing it. I think that is the best thing that could possibly happen for me as I start the next month of this program. I can purely focus on physical results, and not what that damn number is!

3. My little Cooper James turns four on Sunday!!! Cant believe that! He is such a mature four. He doesn’t want “kid things.” He asked me for belts to match his boots. I asked if he wanted brown or black…he said both! He also wants Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles movie. His birthday party is dinosaur themed, and they are going to have a dinosaur egg hunt!

Ugh! Just stop growing!

4. I am going to see if the TJ Maxx law applies to me this weekend. I saw some super cute Michael Kors sandals and shoes last Sunday, along with the perfect dog bed for Gracie. Will they still be there this weekend when I go back for them?!?! Or will the YOU SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT IT WHEN YOU SAW IT rule come in to play? Jury is still out!

5. There are better days ahead…

    Don’t replace the scale batteries!! I’m not a fitness or health expert but I think it’s more important to focus on how you feel and how your clothes fit. Plus, muscle weighs more than fat, so if you’re really getting into it, you might not drop any actual pounds!

    Ah I hope you have good TJ Maxx luck! I hate seeing something I love only to go back and it’s gone.

    Good job not replacing the scale batteries. It’s SO hard not to get caught up in that!

    i am really excited for you that your scale is broken. they are dumb, especially if you are already seeing improvements with yourself.

    I hate leaving things behind that I want to buy! Usually I can only last a day before I go back and the whole time I get a nervous feeling in the pit of my stomach that they’ll be gone by the time I get there! hahaha Good luck to you and your shoes!

    I mean… I HONESTLY cannot get enough of TJ Maxx. For real!

    I love that you’re not replacing the batteries! So true that the scale does not tell the whole story. Now mine just need to die…LOL that cat pic about TJ Maxx is funny!
