Madly in Love with Oranges

Well as most of you know Tuesday evening is my weekly weight watcher weigh in.  This week I have had a strong addiction to oranges, if I am craving something sweet I want an orange, if I want a snack it is an orange and lately for breakfast rather then a piece of whole grain toast I want an orange.  I am not sure if it is just this delicious box of navel oranges I bought or if I really am falling madly in love with oranges...haha!  My family is prone to getting hives if too many oranges are eaten so I was a little bit hesitant about this addiction with them and one morning I was going to wake up with hives.  But I have been very lucky and they are just filling in that gap where I sometimes would fill in with something not so healthy. The other day I did my Biggest Loser Max Cardio workout and holy dynamite two days later I am still feeling it.  I gave it all I had that afternoon so I am sure that has something to do with it.  The first 3 times I did I slacked a little as I was just learning it and the moves.  The third time well I did it during quiet time and I have a 4 yr old boy who does not usually nap so he wanted to do it with me, so that slowed me down a little bit as I did not want to kick him, run into him and he had a million and one questions.  When I work out I like to concentrate on it so I was a little "blonde" when doing my workout with him cause ever time he asked a question I had to stop or slow down.  Oh well we both had fun and lesson learned for me; if you wanna give it all you got do your workout alone.

It was awesome the other evening Chadd said he wanted to go to the gym but forgot to plug in a vehicle so I told him to try it out so he said yes I will try that or your Taebo as he has done that one before and it kicked his ass.  So the next morning he did my BL workout and I bbm'd him that morning to see how it went and all he said "it kicked my ass and my legs are burning"!  I might have had a good chuckle.  I believe you can have a pretty rockin workout at home for 6.95 (what I payed for the DVD) rather then spending 50.00 a month to go to a gym and feel intimidated that all the pig headed muscle freaks are looking at you and thinking what the hell is s/he doing.

Anyways so what I was getting at after blabbering on is the scale and I got a long quite nicely last night and I was down 4.2lbs.  I think I had the hugest smile walking out of that room.  Hooray for another 5lbs star and I am now down 31.4lbs.

Hope you all have a good rest of the week!
