Workouts, Basketball and Awards

Workouts ~

Why do we live by what a scale says? Drives me...as Jess would say...batshitcrazy!! I have been busting my butt for the last week, working out and eating better right? Well I got on the scale yesterday and I had gained 3 lbs. What the heck!?!?! After I calmed down and realized I had probably been gaining muscle since I have been doing some weights too, I was ok with it. But your first instinct is to get upset because your goal is to lose weight. So for the heck of it I got on the scale this morning...just to confirm it and what do ya know...6 lbs lighter than yesterday. So in reality I lost 3 lbs this week. I don't think I had that much different clothes on but who knows. I'm gonna stick with the thought that I lost 3 lbs :)

So have you noticed my cute little character over on the right?? Wep recommended the Nike + iPod Sport Kit when I was debating getting the Body Bugg. I got the kit this weekend but don't have the specific Nike shoes and I wasn't going to buy them so I ordered the lace clip that laces onto the shoe and holds the sensor so it can be used with any shoe. I should be getting that any day!! So back to the cute character...what the kit does is track how far you've gone whether it's running or walking or whatever. Then you use the iPod to sync it on the Nike + website and it tracks and logs everything for you. I found that you can put the little character on your blog, facebook...anything like that. Poor thing is sitting at zero right now until I get my workouts logged when I get the lace clip. It's really cool though, there are lots of training tools on the website.

I am SLOWLY getting to where I can run on the treadmill. I have never been much of a runner but would like to try to. Yesterday I ran for one minute straight during my 30 minutes. Doesn't sound like much but for me it is!! Today...I ran two minute sprints and did two of them. GO ME!!

Basketball ~

Kyler had an away game yesterday and they won 33-13. He scored two baskets!! I didn't take my camera since it was an away game, I wanted to cheer as much as I could :)


I got this blog award from Two Blessings From Above. What a cool mom who is totally into her twin boys hockey! I love getting weather updates from her too, it's brr brr brr cold up there today!!! Thanks for being a fun blog friend too!!

Here's the Friend Bloggy Award Scoop:

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

I am not going to tag anyone specifically but any of the blogs in my blog roll are 100% worthy of this award!!

DON'T LOOK AT THE SCALE!!! That number is just out to get you :) Judge your weight by how your clothes fit.

Congrats on the award and the bball win!

Just stick with it...the scale doesn't show muscle gained or inches lost.

Our scale is broken so if you stand in the middle, it reports your weight a good 20 - 30 lbs lighter than normal (which is why we still have said broken scale)!!
