Firm Friday Week 6 (for me)

Aaand I'm back.

We all know that I couldn't stay away from Firm Fridays for long.

And now? I have an even bigger reason to stick to it.

My work is doing a six week weight loss challenge and the top 3 people to lose the most percentage of their weight win a cool $500.

Desperately poor soon to be bride + a little chunkier than she is comfortable with soon to be bride = a soon to be bride who has her eye on the mother effing prize.


So... we all know that I was sick as a dog two weeks ago, which equaled a big fat working out fail.

And then last week... well... we all know what happened by now.

So I was adamant about getting back in the game this week. I was pissed I had missed two weeks of Couch to 5 K and thought I had lost my momentum. And since I thought I was going to pass out at the thought of Week 5, I decided to re-do week four.

While using weights.

And I rocked it.

Took Tuesday and Wednesday off for obvious reasons. Kind of ate like shit, but I also don't know if I ate enough for it to be horrible. But... I was allowed. So whatever.

Thursday? Some weirdo in my work building was on the treadmill when I came into the gym.

A) There has only been one other person that I have ever seen use the gym. Therefore, I claim it as my own. Back on biznatches.
B) Dude was in full work clothes. On the treadmill. Weird.
C) Homeboy was walking at about a pace of 2. If you are going to steal my treadmill, you better be working it.

I ended up having a pretty good workout though. still put my knickers in a twist.

Anyway. You want the skinny. I haven't done measurements in awhile so here is the WHOLE skinny...or maybe not so skinny...

Weight: 177.9 (4.1 lbs) Gain of 1lb (UG)
Arm: 12.5 (1 inch) Same
Waist: 37.5 (3 inch) Same
Thigh: 24.5 (0.5 inch) Same
Hip: 40.5 (1 inch) Same

So, I've learned something. Apparently not working out for 2 weeks and eating like shit does nothing for your waist line. Go figure. Back at it again next week. Boooo!
