We just finished week 4 of Lose to Win.
And in that week we had a snow day, a blizzard, and the Y was closed for 48 hours.
So I had to resort to drastic measures.
Some of you thought I was crazy for pulling a Rocky IV and running laps around my yard in a blizzard.
We ended up getting about 2 feet of snow.
So I switched it up a little the next day.
I shoveled out the front walkway.
Which took about an hour.
It’s pretty long.
But I still needed to add some cardio.
So I shoveled a luge track for the kids.
That was pretty long too. Even longer than the walkway.
I started by shoveling a pretty big pile of snow at the top. A launch pad.
The kids spent the whole weekend sledding.
It took me about 2 1/2 hours to make that.
Totally worth it.
But just to be on the safe side, I shoveled half of the driveway after that.
4 hours of shoveling.
I’m still a little sore.
But I worked out dammit.
Even in a blizzard.
When the Y was closed for 48 hours.
And all 7 kids were home.
Was it worth it?
Because I lost 3 pounds!
A decent drop.
I actually lost 3.6 pounds.
It feels really fucking good to say that.
And here’s what I learned this week:
You’re not supposed to wear underpants with bike shorts. Who knew?
- My jeans are finally too big. With long underwear on underneath them. Yeeeeaaahhhh Boooooyeeeee.
- We may see Number 5 in the 2026 Winter Olympics. She’s kind of a hard core luger.
- If it weren’t for spin class, I wouldn’t have known any of the current songs nominated at the Grammy’s last night.
- I can do anything if I set my mind to it.
And here are the pictures…
I’m shrinking 🙂
