This week is starting with the letter A - Accountability is a good one!

Now, and I can't believe I'm going to do this, photos - taken this morning - these are my "BEFORE" shots:

...and the dreaded candid bathing suit shot - when we Canadians all jumped into the ocean - at 63 degrees!

I just realized I posted yesterday's photos without any description....I'll go and fix that in a few minutes....

So, accountability - taking a queue from my friend Syl and my new friend Sunshine Mama - sweetheart told me that I don't look happy about having my photos taken.....and he's right! Hmmmmm....guess when I strip down and strap myself into lycra and spandex, my self-confidence goes out the window!

Nevertheless, here are some stats for you:

WI on Feb 8 - 167.3
WI on Feb 14 - 164 - not bad at all.....I was "careful" last week, but didn't track. I've decided I'm going to stick with the WW system and track my food intake and activity on line.

Yesterday, I below it! DSO and I went out for wings and 57.5 points later (I did earn 8.5 APs yesterday - activity points), so I was left with "overspending" my points yesterday by a whole lot! 28 points to be exact. Nice thing, though, is if I keep earning APs and keep tracking and make wise choices for the rest of the week, I'll be okay. Accountability.....if it passes your lips, you write it down! There, done.

Measurements - my start measurements are:

Neck: 13"
Bust: 39"
Rib Cage: 34.5"
Waist: 34.5" (something wrong if my waist is the same size as my rib cage)
Hips: 42"
Butt: 41.5 (again, something not quite right if my hips are bigger than my butt!)
Thighs (L/R): 23.25/24
Calves (L/R): 13/13.75
Upper arms (L/R): 13/12.5

Now most of you don't know is that I'm partially paralized on the right side (arm/shoulder), so my measurements are always skewed because of compensating for an arm with little strength.....

Today, so far, vacuuming, Jillian's 30 day Shred, going to jump on elliptical now....then have to haul water to the barn and if I'm in a good mood, likely will muck out stall and haul wood shavings from the back barn on a toboggan into her stall........maybe a walk this afternoon too!

It's "all or nothing day!"

And for what it's worth - I'm going to be working on teaching my youngest daughter how to sew this afternoon!

Later gators!

  1. I think you already look good in those pictures! But if you're like me...and you must be because we share Sunshine, ha, ha,then we expect a lot from ourselves.

    You can do it! Good job!
