Weekly Weigh in #7 plus new workout gear

Hello again faithful readers!
I have been MIA for a while. The weather has been crazy, we've been busy, it's been nuts around here to say the least.

However, I wanted to give you an update on my journey.
Firstly, and this will be a little too much information but my monthly visitor arrived yesterday so today's results are not going to be too accurate.

So this morning I weight 157.4 which is pretty much the same as last week. However, I am really bloated from my visitor. I did weight myself on Wednesday before the visitor arrived and I weighted 156. So I know I have lost a little bit of weight.

This week went really well. I utilized all the snow and ice outside as my workout. I shoveled and shoveled and broke up ice and shoveled. In total I burned nearly 2000 calories total for the days I shoveled snow.

My eating was pretty good this week. I am still battling my sweet tooth and did really well until the pms cravings kicked in. I let myself have a little bit of what I wanted. I didn't over indulge, I didn't go crazy. I just didn't deprive myself of an oreo or two :)

I have another milestone for this week as well.
Today hubby and I went to Walmart on a whim and he noticed some workout clothing on sale.
Well, normally I am a size Large or a 12-14 BUT today (even being bloated) I was able to purchase size Medium or 8-10 in pants. 

I am still a size large in shirts because I have larger breasts and my size 12 jeans are loose.
I love this progress.

Now I want to share with you all the workout gear I have purchased over the past month or so. I will try to include where I purchased them and the price.

 First is an overview picture of everything I have (so far)

 First up, sports bras. I have larger breasts (38 D) so it has been a battle finding good supportive sports bras. So I did a little research and headed to my local outlet mall (Tanger in Jeffersonville for those close)
I went to the Hanes, Playtex store and found these (best thing is you can try them on!)
These are made by Champion. They are a Max Support bra. I got size xl. It is a racer back bra with a 3 clasp closure. I love this bra! The girls don't bounce around, it wicks the sweat away, doesn't give you pancake boob, and it's pretty. I think these bras were roughly $44.

 Next are my shoes. I also purchased these from the Tanger Outlets mall in Jeffersonville. I bought these from the Adidas store. They are the Adidas Supernova Sequence 6 shoe. I tend to over-pronate (tilt in) when I run/walk and these corrected that. They also corrected the way my foot struck the ground. These shoes are really comfortable and the coolest feature I think is they use Continental tire rubber on the bottoms. These shoes were $120

 Next are my hats. Both came from Walmart. Both were around $5 each. These just keep the sun out of my eyes and more importantly, my hair out of my face.

 Socks are very important. The colorful pair is from the same Adidas store I got my shoes (can't remember price) the white ones are from Walmart. The white ones are Danskin brand and were on clearance for $2. Both pairs are snug around my arch and both wick sweat away.

 These shorts are from Walmart. They are Danskin brand. I found them on clearance for $3. They are super comfy and the best they are a size smaller than what I used to wear :)

 These shorts are also from Walmart. They are also Danskin brand. They were $6.86. 

And finally, I picked up some running tights from Walmart. They are also Danskin brand and cost $12.96.

All of my clothing are athletic clothing and have the moisture wicking technology. I will try to remember to update on durability and performance.

Well friends that is all for today. I have to get dinner going for my hungry crowd.
I have tons of other news from pictures of all the snow and ice to my girl's Valentines dance. I will try to post about everything as soon as I can.

Thank you to all who read my blog.
Sending warm hugs to all who read this.
Be Blessed,
