What plateau?!

Well, this week I have broken my plateau in a BIG way.  I lost 5 lbs this week, going from 267 to 262.  Woohoo!!  It’s weird, I have been SO hungry all week, probably partially from exercising and partially from being off work all week.  I haven’t been home much, but definitely more than usual.  I go back to work on Tuesday so we’ll see if the hunger continues.

I’ve been a little more creative with my cardio this week.  Monday, I walked the track at our local high school in 100 degree weather.  Wednesday, Eric and I did the 2 mile Walk Away the Pounds DVD.  Yesterday, we took the kids to a local parm/farm, Grant’s Farm.  We parked down the road (free! lol) and walked about 1/4 mile or so to get into the park and then back to the car, plus all the walking we did while we were there.  I got a pedometer and wore it the whole time and it logged 1.44 miles.  I’m not sure how accurate it is because today I wore it at Wal-Mart and Target and it logged 16 steps.  LOL  Weird.  I am supposed to do cardio today, but I’m not sure what I’m going to do.  I want to go to the track after Eric gets home, but it looks like it might rain.  If so, I guess we’ll do WATP again.  I viewed a couple of SparkPeople cardio videos and, well…not yet. LOL

Last night, my arm was tense and I was rubbing it and thought, wow my arms feel muscular.  LOL  My shoulders and biceps seem to be developing nicely.  Calves too. 

Here is a picture of the four of us at Grant’s Farm yesterday:
