Weigh In Wednesday

After Saturday's food tour I surely didn't expect to be posting this. In fact we joked that I may end up doing Weigh in Friday this week BUT I'm down 1.2 lbs. YIPPEE!!! I haven't mentioned this but I'm sure it has something to do with the fact that not long after I went to sleep Saturday night I woke up deathly ill. I really hate to puke but I did feel better. TMI, I know. I didn't sleep good either. I'm guessing the 2 back to back cups of coffee at 7:00 didn't help. Needless to say aside from Mass & grocery shopping I was pretty useless Sunday. I felt a little queasy every time I ate & I ate stuff like oatmeal. I hope this isn't a sign that I'm too old to hang.

Later in the day Sunday my sinuses started acting up. Lovely. Of course as soon as I laid down to go to sleep the coughing fits started. I didn't get much sleep Sunday night either. When the alarm went off at 4:45 for my run I did NOT get up. I did run this morning & it was rough. Although, it wasn't my slowest. It was hot & muggy & every step I took was just hard. I think it has something to do with not running since Friday. Apparently, my muscle memory sucks.

I wasn't able to leave work early Monday to go to Yoglates. Every other Monday my co-worker has a hair appointment & she leaves early. Considering I had self medicated myself with Mucinex & I was still feeling queasy every time I ate something, I didn't want to go anyway. I did go yesterday. Summer is officially here to stay. It was 92 when class started & 94 when it was finished. If it's possible to sweat germs out of your system I shouldn't have any left. It took a lot out of me. I'm very much looking forward to going straight home after work today.

I have some questions for my peeps that work out. What do you do to tone? I thought after over a year of Yoglates I'd have a little definition in my thighs. It hasn't happened. Is it because of how I'm eating? If I flex my arms or legs I have muscles. We do a ton of squats too. My arms look better than they used to but I'd like more definition in those as well. I have either 3 or 5 lb weights that I can use on my arms. I don't remember which. We do a ton of push ups in class too so that's helped the arms. I'm also planning to make myself swim laps this summer. Any thoughts or suggestions would be great!



  1. The only thing that has helped tone my legs is running and I hate running BUT it helps and since I do see results i keep running. Yoga has helped for my core but not the thighs :)

  2. Congratulations! Good for you! :) I lift heavier weights to get more muscle- probably 10 pound for arms.
