Balloons over Sonoma County

Ah the dangers of weighing in every day :P Today the scale gave me the unfortunately news that I am 205.2 today. I’m not going to let it get to me though – I’ll persevere through the week and hopefully have even better results then last week.

Yesterday ended as it started – in great shape. I hit my calorie mark and was right on with my ratios. Yay!

Today, my meals are packed and I’m ready for another day the just as good.

It started on the right foot at least. Even though I hit the ‘snooze’ button a few times I still managed to make it to the gym by 5:30. After a little warm up I hit the gym to work on legs – one of my FAVORITE days. Because we had to work around a few people who were using equipment we didn’t do our ‘regular’ workout but with only a little rearranging we managed to get all our exercises in. And I found that I think I like this exercise order even better then our planned one.

Leg Press: 500 x 6/500x6/500x6
Standing Calf Raises: 195x8/195x8/195x8
Squats (+bar): 140x6/140x6/140x6/140x6
Seated Calf Raises: 135x8/135x8
Straight Leg Dead Lifts(+bar): 110x6/110x6/110x6

Then we went and stretched out really good. Overall a really nice workout and 65 minutes more toward my weekly goal.

It should be another great day – I keep stringing these together and I may just start to feel confident about myself again.

  1. YES you should feel confident about yourself Shawn.

    It's a long road and it's not easy, but you're getting there. That thing that happened last week is history, and you can achieve so much :-).

    Feel confident and feel proud. It all helps to build you up mentally, so you're stronger and more dedicated to the cause.

    YOU CAN DO THIS Shawn. Keep it going misses, and you'll look even more fabulous in next to no time.

    I'm feeling a lot of pride for you right now, and you should for yourself too.

    Sending you some BIG HUGS, to let you know what I think of your great comeback, and to let you know, I'll be along for the ride every step of the way, so you won't be able to make any boo boos, and be allowed to forget them :-P :-P.

    Take care and have a great day.
