Day 14 Body for Life & pregnancy comments

Yesterday we went to look at a few houses.  We are most likely going to sell our house and get another maybe with a little more land.  So anyway, we go and look at this one house yesterday and there was an elderly lady there.  Apparently the great aunt of the owner.  No one was supposed to be home according to the realtor.  She was apparently expecting us though.  So we view the house rather quickly because who wants to look at a house with someone staring at you while you do it, right?  We go downstairs and are looking around and I hear her ask my girls(who are downstairs with me and she was still upstairs) "are you having a little brother or sister?".  Ummmm........what?  Luckily I am pretty close with my realtor.  We both give each other a look like, huh?  I yelled up to her "neither" and proceeded to look downstairs at the other rooms. 

Oddly, I wasnt insulted at all.  I dont think I look pregnant.  I am 180 something pounds and I had a coat on and a scarf on the outside of my coat.  I like my coat.  I feel pretty confident that I dont look preggo. She had made a few other comments that were odd while we were there.  Then we were getting ready to go and she was saying how she plans to live there forever or something like that.  Ummmm....this house is FOR SALE with a sign saying so on the lawn.  Does she come with the house??  Anyway, the house was nice but not for us.  It was all so odd.

Today is day 14 of the Body for Life challenge and I am still in awe of how I am not having cravings.  Today we went to the mall and I sat in the food court and watched everyone else eat.  It didnt dawn on me until much later that I wasnt even tempted for anything.  I dont know what is going on with this body of mine but I like it!

Today was a cardio day.  I was super tired last night and went to bed around 8:00.  I woke up several times in the night with an awful headache.  It was still there this morning so I decided to hold off on my cardio until later.  They recommend it be the first thing you do in the morning but I just couldnt.  I dreaded it all day.  But I did it and I was so pleased with how far I have come.  My progress was evident to me tonight.  I had to increase my speed on the treadmill to reach my appropriate levels of intensity. 

Tomorrow starts week 3 of Body for life.  It is weigh day and a recheck on my body fat % and BMI. Fingers crossed.  I have put in the hard work.
Today's reason for losing weight:
*so that when I walk past a mirror the first thing I see is NOT the roll of fat above my jeans.

Today I am thankful for:
*that Christmas Eve or Christmas day fall on a *free* day.  I will choose which day as the weekend gets closer.

I am just so proud of you for sticking with this...it takes a few weeks but all of a sudden you won't be able to deny the changes.

Wow good for you!!! I feel so crappy tonight I think I am going to bed now..without a workout which makes me cringe. I am losing much slower than when I was on Medifast, but I don't want to kill anyone either, which is a step up. ;-)

Keep it up, and ignore senile old bags. ;-)

I don't think you look pregnant at all! Some people, I'm telling ya. Forget her. What does she know, right?

Sounds like she wants to be sold with the house..crazy pants!! When we were house hunting earlier this year, I couldn't believe the level of crazy of some sellers! I sort of wish I would have documented our "journey," but not really ;)

Hey Jenn... hope you have a FANTASTIC Christmas! I'm so glad that the body for life program is working well for you. You go girl!! And to not have those cravings... that is way awesome! Cravings are what really make it hard for me, that's why I like to stay on plan.

So how long did you train for your half marathon? I am starting from the beginning again since I haven't been running. Any tips from the pro would be super.

I hope you have a fabulous new year and stick to your plan, girl! :)

God bless...
