Another Wii Fit / Fitness Milestone

Today I weighed in and it finally happened - I am under 200LBs for the first time in years. I do not even remember the last time my weight was this low, but I am ecstatic.

For reference, check out my first weigh in in May of 2008. As you can see, I was 254.4LBs. Since then it has been a journey with some unnecessary breaks (down to 225, then going all the way back to 245 before last June deciding to get healthy again!).

Ants! Arg.

Get out of my house you little pests!  Nasty, disgusting little bugs.  Of course all the ant baits say ‘not for use near children’.  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.


Wii Fit Update!

Things are going well.  As of the weigh in today, I’ve lost 30lbs!  Sorry for the bad photo stitch, but the 1 year graph looked funny.wiifit-08-11-2010

Wii Fit Update

Prior to the start of June, I hadn't weighed in on Wii Fit since January, when I weighed 235, a gain of 10lbs since I was doing Wii fit to begin with in 2008. I was rather disappointed with myself, I have a renewed commitment to get fit. Since June (6th I believe) here is a chart of how I've been doing!

I've been trying to get out and exercise on the elliptical for 30 minutes at least 2-3 times a week, and have been doing the weight machine for another 5-10 min.

As far as eating, I've been limiting intake, watching the calorie counts and portions. Very importantly I've looked at things like pop and said "Hmm. No, this 140 calorie pop is not worth the 20 minutes of exercise."

Samsung Finally Delivered

After a long struggle, the HLT-5075S is now out of my home and in its place, the LN46B550.  While I prefer the additional real estate of the 50” TV vs the 46, I must say having the warranty issue from hell finally closed is a relief.

New Bed

After sleeping on a siesta sak for about a year now after we kicked our Sleep Number bed to the curb we finally said “enough”.  Waking up stiff or not sleeping well can’t go on forever.  Since we need to move into our dining room (hey, we have a 2 bedroom house) we are making a bit of a project out of it.  As a result, we decided to go with a Coaster Isabella king bed with an Englander mattress set.  The bed is beautiful, and we can’t wait for it to be delivered.
