~ Weigh in Wednesday ~

Hi Friends,

Happy Wednesday to you!

First thing's first is I want to send out a Prayer request for Felicia at Raggedy Creations. She is int ho hospital and not doing well. Please stop by her blog, and leave her a little pick me up. I am sure she could use it. Being in the hospital stinks!

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, I'm just not in the mood to blog. (I dare not say "nothing is going on" after what happened last week.)

I thought I had steered clear of Mr. Primcats cold... but I woke up with it Friday morning and have been sick ever since. Yuk! I seriously hate snot. I feel like a germy little kid. lol.

I was so sick that I missed Zumba Saturday. :( I set my alarm clock hoping for a miraculous recovery, but nope... my head was pounding. SO back to sleep I went. That made me really sad. I do ♥ my Zumba days.

Sunday we had a really nice Easter dinner with friends and family. Nothing to big or fancy. Just a nice get together.

I did go to Zumba Monday and I almost died. lol. I laugh but it was pretty bad. About a half hour in, I felt this cold chill come over me like when you have a fever and my whole body turned red, like I had a terrible sunburn. It was weird. Everyone was freaking out. I just sat down waited for it to pass and then jumped back in when I could.

I did Zumba toning (weights) last night with Jamie at home and then Rush, a 20 minute class. But I put very little effort into either. Just keeping it low key until this cold passes. I will be zumbaing tonight too. I hope I can hold up through the class. I will go easy. I believe in resting when you are sick, but I don't believe in just quitting. I still have to do something, even if it's only the effort. :)

My weight was insane over the past 5 days. I drank gallons of orange juice over the past few days and was bloated up like I couldn't believe. On Sunday, pre-dinner, I weighed in at 137. Yikes. I was not feeling good.

So lets get to today.

Starting Weight: 150

Last weeks Weigh in: 132

This weeks weigh in: 132

Total Lost :

18 Pounds

No loss this week... but that's ok because I was totally expecting a gain this week after all the juice and somehow it leveled back out. I will take it!

Until next time...

Carmen and the Primcats

So sorry to hear you got that nasty cold. It ain't fun!
Sounds like you're doing good with the weight loss.
Hope to see you Saturday.

Hi Carmen,
I hope that nasty cold goes away is no fun being sick. My weight loss seems to have stalled...didn't lose at all again this week. I think my back troubles are causing it, since I'm not allowed to workout until my hip and back are staying in place.
See you Saturday.

Sorry to hear that you are sick. It is no fun being sick. I think all this change in the temps outside has alot to do with it. And since we didn't have a really cold winter, the germs are out there ready to attack.
Hope you feel better soon.

Sorry to hear you have a nasty cold! Hubby came down with one yesterday and had to travel for the Army this morning. So he's definitely not feeling good. Glad you had a nice Easter!

Oh I hate colds the worst. You would think there'd be a cure for them by now.
Take it easy Zumba girl!

Angela said...

Oh Dear Carmen, colds are NO fun anytime especially in the spring and summer. Hope is passes soon Are you going to Angie's craft show this weekend and get to meet Linda? I would have so loved to join those girls and gone to the show. Take care

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

Well Carmen you have good reason to not loose this past week - it was MUCH BETTER TO DRINK THOSE FLUIDS than to try and loose...much healthier in the end. Hope that nasty ole cold is gone soon.

Hope you're feeling better soon! Keep up the good work with your diet! Please do a couple of extra Zumba steps for me (do you think that would work?). I'm working my abs and upper body at the gym but don't know when I'll be able to go back to classes and I miss it. :-( ~Roberta
