Total Loss: 71 pounds!!

Okay!! Back on track!! I had a very busy week with work, family and journey!! I'm happy with this loss - I was shooting for 3 pounds, but quite pleased with 2!! My friend Coco was predicting a 3lb drop as well. The scale read 2.4 this morning! I'll shoot for 3 again this week Coco! :) My schedule this week was all over the place, I had to make a few extra sacrifices to get my workouts in. Glad this week is over!! So 71 pounds GONE baby with about 6 and a half weeks left on the journey - whooooooooohoooooooooo!!

I just got my new workout from my trainer Rob today!! HOLY MOTHER OF ALL CRAP, I think this time, he's lost his mind!! I think this routine was built for two reasons!! ONE - to kick the you-know-what out of all the fat left in my body and TWO - to inflict pain!! LOL!! Seriously, this workout is intense - a series of total body weight lifting exercises. For example, he rolled 3 exercises in one (dumbbell squat with curls and press); super sets, it's nuts!! I can't wait to get in the groove with this one, combined with the martial arts stuff; I'm excited!!!:)

Kickboxing and Jiu-jitsu was tough as well this week. Sensei Derek is on a mission to "make one of us puke"!!! Throwing 100 jabs (each hand) will knock the wind out of anyone,100+ crunches, kicks......omg...he pushes us to crazy limits where your lungs and heart are just burning and pumping. My arms felt like jello after last nights class.

On another note, it's Halloween - Happy Halloween!! I'm off to buy some candy for the kids this evening. I purposely did not buy the candies in advance because I just could not have those little yummy devils in the house!! MY PLAN IS TO RESIST ALL SWEET TEMPTATIONS TONIGHT!!! I WILL NOT HAVE ANY CANDY!!! I'm scurrrrrrred - it's chocolate afterall, but I've got to stay focussed. I'll tell you one thing, the kids coming to my house tonight will be smiling, because I will be unloading those chocolates in large quantities to get all sweets out of this house!! LOL!

Anyway, that's it for now! My son is on a high with excitement, he'll be even crazier once he starts getting some sugar in him!! He's dressed up as Spider Man today (sweetest spidey I ever seen!!) :)

Have a nice Halloween!!

Until next time...

Happy Halloween!

I am off to give out candy at a friend's house with my BF.

Yeahhhh on the 2.4 lb loss. I have to tell you I think my trainer and your Sensei went to the same training school. I find 50 jabs unbearable, I can only imaging doing 100. Just think that with every jab, your shoulders and arms are getting that much more cut- lol.

Happy Halloween!

congrats on the loss, and on jui jitsu class. It's sounds hard, but fun. Keep up the good work!

Your workout sounds totally awesome. It really makes me think I need to do something to kick mine up a notch. Thanks for the inspiration.
