Day 1, Week 5, 8 Weeks to go...

Well lets start off with the weigh in...I gained .2 lbs. Ok, now here is where I get confused, because I now fit into a smaller size pants, things fit a lot better, I feel a lot better, my arms and legs are getting more and more muscular...but I gained weight. Maybe a little too much birthday partying, maybe it is muscle, since muscle weighs more then fat. All I know, is I don't like when the scale goes up. Especially when I have been doing so good and losing steadily. Eh. Oh well. Now back to a good week this week. Though I did all I have done every week since the beginning last week. I did work out extra hard last week, maybe I pushed it too much. ok ok, enough thinking about this...on to week 5.

Other then that the weekend went very well, worked out Saturday morning, worked from 10-3 collecting rosters for kickball for BSSC. Jimmy, my mom and I went to Rehoboth Beach outlet shopping on Sunday, Jimmy and I got lots of good deals. I got some cute smaller size pants and skirts for the summer/spring. So all in all a good weekend.

Today Jimmy calls me to let me know I got a package in the mail...from Jeannie!! I got an awesome present from her, (she was my first partner in the 2007 Challenge I got some great things. First off, she sent some of her homemade doggie treats for my pups! And they LOVED THEM!! But before we gave them each their own treat, Jimmy decided he wanted to taste them. Jeannie, Jimmy agrees with you...no need to wrestle those away from the dogs! :) But boy did they gobble them right up!! They were licking the crumbs up off of the kitchen floor! Thanks for being so thoughtful and thinking of them too! Then I got 2 mini Yankee Candles...and anyone who knows me, knows how I always have a big Yankee Candle burning in my house. I just went and got a new one the other day (watermelon...I definitely recommend it!) and while I was in there I was thinking about getting a lavender lemon one...and Jeannie sent me one!! I have it lit in the bedroom as I am typing this. And she sent me a really cool water bottle, with an orange lid..my favorite color! I rinsed it right out and used it for my water for dinner. :) I also got a workout mix CD. I can't wait to listen to it during my workout tomorrow night! THANK YOU JEANNIE!!! Your card was too sweet too...

Tomorrow I will hopefully have come up with all of my goals for April. I can't believe it is April!!

Have a great week all...only a few more days left of the lent challenge!! Keep up the great work everyone!!

Until tomorrow...

Adios :)

YAY! I'm glad you got your present! Since, you know, I was a month late in sending it and all heehee. And I'm glad the pups liked their treats too!

And I wouldnt worry too much on being up .2. That could just be wearing a necklace, or not peeing before you weighed in. I say as long as things are fitting better and youre feeling better than youre on the right track!

Hi - I have been reading your blog for a little while and I am waiting for my copy of the Body for Life 12 week change - whatever it is called. I ordered it because you raved about it. Don't worry about .2 I think you should get a scale that measures in the .5 and not in smaller measurements because like Jeannie said something that small might show up - like the necklace. Keep up the good work - and don't forget more important than losing weight is gaining muscle. I don't have a lot of weight to lose but ever since I had my baby I am flaaabbbyy!
