Hot in Herrrrre......

In the words of Nelly "It's getting hot in here so take of all your clothes"

Wow this is crazy. We broke a record the other day of  one of the hottest places in Canada. It was 37.6 degrees celsius....for all you that go by fahrenheit is was 98.6 degrees....and with the humidex it was 120 degrees. Ever hear the saying "It's so hot outside you could fry an egg on the sidewalk?"

Adam's soccer game was cancelled due to the heat, and pretty much everyone was staying inside enjoying the air conditioning. I did take Adam to his daily swimming lessons though. They are in the morning when it's not toooo hot. Doesn't the water look inviting.....

This week on the weight loss front, I had a couple of bad moments which I blogged for help, and got the support I needed from my wonderful followers, family & friends. I am pleased to announce that the rest of the week I worked really hard and I can now report a loss of 2.6 lbs.

I am back in the 230's and with some hard work (and a little praying) I will stay here and eventually make it into the 220's before September rolls around.

My 10 year wedding anniversary is September the 8th, and I would like to hit my 225 lbs goal by then. My wedding dress was a size 18 so I would like to be in an 18 again by then. I can get into an 18 now, but I look like I stuffed myself into them. So I want to be a "comfortable" 18.....

So to update you on my "Back to Basics" Challenge, I am currently in 1st place in my category with 2.66% lost since July 3rd. Not too bad seeing as one of those weeks I had a

I have a total weight loss of 15.55% since I started in February.
I started with a BMI of 45.7 now I am a 38.6....only 8.6 more to go till I'm just considered "overweight" and not "obese".

All in all I have lost a total of 44 lbs. THAT IS EQUIVALENT TO THIS FISH.....holy hell....

This week I am going to focus more on my protein intake at breakfast, and getting 5 workouts completed. Gotta stay in that #1 spot!!!!


  1. Nice loss! This heat is killer, isn't it? GROSS. I think you'll hit your September goal. Cute wedding picture!

  2. Number 1 is a good place to be - keep up the good work. You have done so well thus far, keep it up and by September you'll feel even better in time for that anniversary.

  3. You did good my lovely!! That's mother flippin awes!!

    I would take stinking hot any day over freezing cold. It's snowing in parts of NZ at the mo where it NEVER snows. It's completely whack.
    And I am basically mounting a heater right now & still bloody cold.

    P.S That's one big bitchin fish x

  4. Yay for the loss!! Ugh it is hot! The pool opens at 10 & I take the boys when it opens for like 2 hours. Its too hot to even be in direct sunlight.

    That's a big wedding party!

  5. 98 degrees?!! lucky!!! Its been over 110 here for the last 2 weeks. Been 100 almost everyday since May. and I live in east texas so we're covered with trees and super humid all the dang time so it feels even worse. I will say its been good for helping me sweat off the weight though haha.

    I'm sure you'll be in the 220s by the time september gets here though!!! congrats on finally getting back on the wagon headed in the right direction! :)

  6. Holy shit! Your fish is bigger than my fish. haha

    Gorgeous toe nail polish. What colour is it? Btw, love your tattoos. haha

  7. @Rachellabelle - My Hips Don't Lie It is called Lola and the brand is Orly....I usually use OPI or China Glaze, but this brand has really nice polish and I was hearing positive things so I thought I would try it!!!
