Biggest Loser

First off thank you guys for your sweet comments on my tatty pic! I got the idea from a favorite band of mine, the Murder City Sparrows. On the ladies tee of theirs they have screened a pair of sparrows, very old school rock and roll. I loved the design and took it to the tatt shop and my artist (The very awesome Sully at Southside Tattoos in Calgary) wanted to make them a little more full bodied, but the essence of the original design is still there. I'm going to add some more to it later, and I'm quite surprised at how well they're healing!

I watched The Biggest Loser for the first time ever last night. It was some kind of motivation, let me tell you. I'm PMSing so I've been craving junk and eating junk and going over points without exercising. A bad combo for sure. As great as it is that these contestants are losing so much weight, the amount that they lose in the short period of time scares me and makes me wonder how healthy it really is. But it's a motivation nonetheless. What made me sad was seeing those that only lost 1-5 pounds upset with their loss. Any loss is a loss right? They're pushed to do the best and be the best and what they're left with is an awesome weight, half of it being loose floppy skin. I'd rather take the slow weight loss and gradual tightening of the skin then be left with something that NEEDS to be surgically removed.

Anyway, I got up this morning and with that motivation in mind got a high intensity half hour workout in, ate a healthy oatmeal and whole wheat toast breakfast, and got started on my housework. I already feel better for it. I'm going to cross my fingers that this bit of motivation will stay forefront in my mind to keep me going. I need it!

Becaue of my tattoo appt out of town, staying at someone else's home, and not knowing where the scale is, I missed my last WI. I doubt it was a good one, but I'm hoping this week will either keep me the same as my last official WI or drop me a bit. Thank you water retention and lack of total control during THAT time. Wish me luck!

For your viewing pleasure, here's a pic that my son and I took today

Lovely photo....I thought about that Sony camera when looking for a compact a while ago. In the end I picked a Nikon but I did like the Sony. Great result.
