Hubby and I have been having our own private weight loss challenge over the last 4 weeks. We're calling it the K Family Weight Loss Challenge. Anyone who knows me IRL knows I'd lost about 55 pounds 2 years ago and have gained back a few (cough25cough) over the last year or so.
Generally speaking I love sweets and hate exercise. You do the math. :) But I decided I didn't want to gain back those last 30 pounds. I'd rather lose the 25 I regained. Hubby only needed to lose about 20.
Our methods differ a lot.
Hubby gets on the elliptical for an hour a day. I stare at the elliptical for an hour a day.
Hubby happily enjoys salad for lunch and a side salad at dinner everyday. I will only subject myself to a salad once a day, usually at lunch, cursing it the entire time.
Hubby has cut back on coffee and is still just as chipper as usual. I've increased my coffee intake...might as well stick a caffeine IV drip in me.
Hubby lifts weights and is getting definition in his arms (hot!). My weight lifting happens at work, with the large dusty files. No definition to be seen.
Even though our methods differ we've both lost a few pounds over the last 4 weeks. I wanted to celebrate how great we're doing, so I made these:
I know, I know...I'm backwards! Couldn't help myself. Pi and I had a little Friday night bake fest and I let her decorate. Do you see her adorable Frankenstein on the bottom there?
I'm going to go have one of these bad boys for breakfast while trying to forget the upcoming lunch salad.
Have a great Saturday peeps!
