Me @ my neighborhood Starbucks drinking my signature drink: A sugar-free vanilla latte with non-fat milk at 140 degrees.

So, I’ve been down with flu for the past couple of days, but believe me, that didn’t stop me from dancing my jig when I got on the scale and saw 199 pounds.  Baaaaaabbbbbyyyy.

Now that’s what I am talking about.

We are on our way.

I made it to the gym four times this week.

I went on Sunday instead of hiking because it was raining that morning and I am not the one to be caught up on any mountain in a storm.  As my friend Marquita says, we do not want to be Dateline exclusives, at least not in that way.

So instead, we went to the gym and worked out our biceps, triceps, and buttceps, lol, just kidding, but we did get on the Butt Blaster.  Believe me when I tell you, I still feel it in my arms today.

On Monday, I went to my hip-hop class and if you read my blog on Tuesday, then you know that I embarrassed all Black people.  Sorry.  I will try and do better next week.
On Tuesday, my friends Alan-Michael and Dale and I went to what we thought was a beginners step aerobics class but what really turned out to be an intermediate to advanced step aerobics class.  I nearly died.  I thought the hip-hop class was bad, at least I made it to the end of the class.  I only lasted 45 minutes into the step aerobics class before I left.  All I remember is the instructor saying something about those of us doing our own routines need to be mindful of the rest of the class.  For some reason I thought he was talking to me because I was always five steps behind.  After class, my friends told me he was talking to the girl in the front who decided she was going to do it her own way.  Oh well.  By then the damage was done and I was out of there.

I went back to the gym for my own work little workout session focusing on my arms and my butt.

So all in all, I didn’t do too bad.

It’s back to hiking come Sunday because the whether is supposed to be beautiful.

I love how baggy my old clothes are.  It makes me feel real good to see it in that way because I can’t always tell from looking in the mirror.

With all of my weight loss, my face has suffered from more acne breakouts than in recent months.  My friend told me it could be because a lot of toxins are leaving my body.  It’s so bad right now that I can’t even wear make-up because I just have to let my face breath.  I hope it stops soon.  Having large and irritating blemishes on your face is not cool.  One thing I decided to start back doing was to go to the day spa and get my facials every other week.  When I used to do that regularly my skin was very clear and evenly toned.

Watch out 170 here I come and from there, who knows, I make just try to get to 150.  Anything less than that would require me to lose my ass and that’s not happening, lol.
