Week 2 weigh-in = up almost 2lbs. Ugh! I did Zumba twice this week (I know that doesn't sound like much, but most of the time, I do it only once a week) and ate fairly good throughout the week. I wasn't all that great last weekend, so maybe that is biting me in the butt. I'm frustrated because I thought I was doing pretty good to where I thought I would at least maintain this week. But, instead, I weigh more than I did at my first weigh in for this competition! It's not looking like the money is headed my way.

I will try and keep some sort of motivation going, but it doesn't seem to be working out too well.

Weight Loss Challenge

So, last year around April, we started a weight loss challenge at work. We all pitched in $25 and whoever lost the most percentage of their original body weight would win the pot. During that competition which lasted 2 months, I lost a total of about 12lbs. I managed to maintain that and I even lost a couple more pounds after that. Then, I gained a few pounds back over the holidays and all.

We decided to do round 2 of this challenge at work and it started last week. At my first weigh-in, I was exactly the same weight as my last weigh-in of the first challenge. The scale at work is a little off compared to my home scale, so I think my weight is actually a little lower. But I guess that doesn't matter because we are using the work scale for the competition.

Well, this round 2 challenge has been super challenging already! I really don't feel motivated this time and I'm not sure what it is...geez, I have a Hawaii trip in a few months, I should be totally motivated! It's not happening though. So, today was the first weigh-in day and I was down 1lb. I guess it doesn't feel like a great start for me, but at least I lost a little.

Hopefully since I'm posting this on my blog, it will force me to make an update every once in a while to tell you about my progress...good or bad. Maybe this will give me a little more motivation.

Wish me luck!

Flashback to Newborn Days

I went to visit my cousin and her new baby at the hospital yesterday. Cali Rae is a beautiful little girl!

Every time I visit a baby in the hospital, it makes me think of when my own babies were born. So, I thought I Flashback post was appropriate...

My tiny miss Lexxa weighing in at 6lbs, 9oz. Wow, our first baby and all of a sudden life changes in a major way!

She was Daddy's little girl from day one.

It's crazy to look back at the day she was born--she's five years old already!

Fast forward almost 3 years...and then there were 2. Note the shirt that Brad is wearing below...yep, it's the same one he was wearing when Lexxa was born! I know, sad.

My "little" man weighed in at 9lbs 11.8oz, over three pounds heavier than his sister was when she was born! Holy Moly!

My sweet babies.

Big sister was so excited to hold and love her little brother.
