I took a sabbatical from everything healthy. Basically life happened and my weight took a back seat and I didn't focus on it. I am not proud of the fact that I gained as much weight as I did, but it proves to me that I must always check the scale daily to keep on top of it. Even when I was basically maintaining for the better part of a year I was still checking almost daily and my weight fluctuated up and down but over a range of only 5-7 lbs. When I checked at the beginning of this week I was back up to 271.4, then the next day it was 271.8, down a little to 271.6 and today was 271.2. I have not been perfect every day, but I have been more aware and I think that is helping again.
My activity level has been nil. I haven't felt like running really because I am never home it seems. And when I am home I want to relax. I feel like such a putz because I was doing pretty good at one point. I know I need to get back at it, whether it be running, walking or something else, but I just haven't felt like it yet. I feel kind of on the verge of planking and doing my ab stuff. It takes minimal time and does lead to results.
The temperatures have been atrocious lately! I have definitely not wanted to be outside doing anything physical since it has been 95+ degrees outside. Heck, I haven't even mowed the lawn lately. Not that it needed it until just the past day or so though!
I started my baking business officially this week. It's All In The Frosting... I hope it works! I am quite nervous about it as of right now. Afraid of prices and doing a good job for people. I have only ever baked for myself or friends and family. I felt it was finally time to give it a go though. Keeping it fairly simple to start. As of right now I only have cupcakes and cakes listed on the price sheet. My goal is to add cookies, bars, muffins and pies also! I ordered some business cards, magnets and product stickers to get my name and info out. If you want to check it out you can find me on Facebook. Click on the name and it will take you to my page. It's All In The Frosting...
Life has been bumpy since the wedding...oh yeah speaking of the wedding...it went off beautifully. My mom was here to help and celebrate. I met more of John's family. We had a gambling good time and everyone seemed to have fun! Hopefully everything will start to smooth out though! I am ready for life to be a little more relaxing!
Not much else to report at this time of catch up. I hope to be back on here more often because I really think it helps me stay focused as well. Until then...

I did almost every day of the Fab Abs Challenge. I got a little busy the last few days and didn't have enough time in my day, but I am still satisfied with my results. I didn't keep track of weight well at the beginning of the month, but I know I was around 263 so as of yesterday I was at 260.6. I hope with all that I am doing I can continue this direction downward! Measurement-wise...I don't think I did a very good job of taking my measurements at the beginning of February and so it only shows a loss of 7/8" but I am still very pleased with that. I did have January 2011 measurements to go off of and I have lost and kept off now 13+ inches total! 5.5" off my waist and 3" off my hips! From the beginning of February until March 1st I did lose a whole inch off my hips and a whole inch off the area under my boobs! I can really see the differences in those two areas. My waist did not change, but it did TONE! I can see so many changes in my body from the hard work I am putting in using the Ab Challenges and running!
