Wednesday Weigh In

Happy Hump Day. Well I am exhausted, I stayed up the whole night and got about 1 hr of sleep - but whatev!

So Wednesday Weigh In... I am down 5 lbs since last Wednesday. Say what? Yep.. pretty pumped, however I have been REALLY eating clean and working out consistently. I guess that theory is correct - LOL. So YAY to weight loss.

I leave for Philly on Saturday and I am really pumped. I need some time away from here, I love my kids and E, but once in awhile a mama has to take sometime for herself. So I will be gone Saturday and will return on Wednesday. I MIGHT slack on the blogging as I am stuffing cheese steak sandwiches in my face:) No.. I probably will try one sandwich, BUT I am really going to keep at this and I am looking forward to the gym there. We are staying at a Marriott (our conference is there too). I am looking forward to sinking into this indoor pool and getting my sweat on, in the gym. Anyone have any recommendations for us for eating, places to see, etc... I am into local stuff - so if you know I would LOVE to hear. You can email me at missmel_joy@yahoo.com - I was hoping to get my run on outside there too, any suggestions for a place close in proximity to the hotel (we are not renting a car, everyone told us not to)?

One more thing... I am signing up for the Santa's North Pole Dash - it is in December and you get to wear a Santa beard and costume. Ummmmm can you say RIGHT UP MY ALLY? If anyone is interested, let me know or if you are already running, let me know. Ho.Ho.Ho.



Alright people I am outskees today.. I have a TON of work and things to catch up before I jet for 5 days AND I am EXHAUSTED.

Happy Hump Day

Are you doing any December runs? How is your weight loss going? Ready for the weekend?

  7. WAY TO GO!! 5lbs is awesome, especially when you're already so small!! I've been debating the North Pole Dash... but now that someone else I know is doing it maybe I should just sign up anyway...

  8. Congrats on the 5lb loss!!!

    Yum, Philly Cheesesteak's!!! I'd love to have one in Philly someday. Andy and I watch Man vs. Food and Diners, drive In's and Dives, get all kinds of ideas for places to eat that aren't chains in different cities. Maybe check out their websites, I bet they've been to Philly many times and have some awesome food joints to try out!

  9. WAY TO GO on the 5 lbs!!!!

    And I totally was just contemplating running this! A few people from my department are doing it and I have been really thinking about it. I was trying to use the excuse that we have our family xmas party that afternoon, but really its not till 2! That should not be an excuse huh!?

  11. Oh you're so committed! I bailed around 11:30pm--just couldn't wait for the speeches. I caught them on my drive in to work this morning ("hello, public radio! want to be friends?").

    But more important than all of that, congratulations on your 5-lb loss!!! You totally deserve it with all the hard-core running and clean eating you've been doing. Way to go, Mel!!

  23. 5 pounds?? You lost a bag of potatoes off your body! What are you eating? Anything good? :) And have fun in Philly! I was there last year for work and ate at a place called Aldelphia. It had a little bakery inside, too.

    And do you notice how many readers you have? You're blowing up, Mel! :)
