Wii Fit Week Eighteen!

25 May

So yea, I missed a couple weeks but this is the eighteenth week of my Wii Fit program. The last few weeks have been VERY busy! Girls will do that to you I guess. I was able to get on the Wii a few times this holiday weekend and so here is an update!

Still going downward!

28 Apr

I’m sure you thought I forgot about this didn’t ya? Nope, just decided that FREE chicken was more important.

So, not only did this week mark my fourteenth full week of using Wii Fit to lose weight, Monday was a special day:

Wow

Wow

This, of course, was not my 100th day working out, just 100 TOTAL days since I first powered up my Wii Fit!

Wii Fit Week Thirteen!

20 Apr

Sorry for the late post today…My schedule was crazy over the weekend and I was unable to do my Wii Fit on Sunday. So once I woke up today on my day off I took my body test and took some pictures for you!

If you are new, I just completed my thirteenth week with Wii Fit and am trying to not be fat anymore. I also have been eating/cooking healthier and so far I am pleased with the results! You can review my progress in my past posts: Day One, Week One, Week Two, Week Three, Week Four, Week Five, Week Six, Week Seven, Week Eight, Week Eleven and Week Twelve.

It has already been a long process, 93 days! I haven’t been good enough to work out EVERY one of those days, but I’m doing pretty good! Week Thirteen was especially decent:

Go me!

Go me!

Spiced Pork Chops with Sweet Potatoes

18 Apr
Cook Book

Cookbook

This is the second recipe that I have made from Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetite cookbook. This one is a bit more substantial than the Mango, Avacado, and Smoked Chicken Salad I did a while back. This time I decided while flipping through the beautiful pages to make Ramsay’s Spiced Pork Chops with Sweet Potatoes.

This recipe was still relatively simple and I was able to throw it together after getting home from work, but before going out to karaoke at Big Daddy’s! I love me some karaoke with DJ Di! This meal helped power me to an amazing rendition of “You Outta Know” by Alanis Morrisette.

Have you bled today?

21 May

Today I donated blood. I try to donate blood as often as possible (once every 2 months for a normal donation) and I encourage everyone who reads this to do the same! You never know when you are going to be in an accident, or need surgery and how valuable that blood could be for you!

Donating blood is actually good for your health!! And ladies, want to lose a pound fast!! Donate a pint of blood!!!!

Today was my first experience with the Alyx machine. As you can read in that link, this machine facilitates what is called a “double red” donation. This means that the machine takes an entire pint of red blood cells and returns the plasma back in to the blood stream. It does it all through ONE needle!! It’s actually really cool to watch and hopefully it will allow my blood to help a few people in need!

Funny part of my day started when “Dee” had to ask me my weight and height to make sure I “qualified” for the Alyx machine. I find this hilarious now because I read online that the requirement for men is 5’1 and 130 pounds!! I’m about a foot taller than that and I think my right leg weighs 130!!

Second funny part was when they were unable to fill the 5 test tubes (used to test your blood for HIV and other diseases) because my blood had clotted the connector. If they were unable to fill the tubes, my blood would be a waste!! After much whispering the “team leader” went behind a small divider and started working on it. I don’t know what she did, but I know that she got the tubes filled, but also spilt a good amount of my blood and had to clean it up.

I’m glad my donation wasn’t a waste!

GO OUT THERE AND DONATE!!! Please
