Katie: Week 23

Woot!  Woot! 

Current weight: 140 pounds
Last week's weight: 143 pounds
Total weight loss: 30 pounds!!!!!!!!!!

I guess that's what happens when you throw up a lot and then have no appetite for days.  Hopefully I won't bounce back up again.

Goals chart from this past week...
Well, obviously I did not meet my goals 100% this week.  Can you tell my body and I have not been getting along this past week?  For those of you who didn't read my whiny post on Sunday, I'll give you the quick version of what I've been through this past week:

-been having extra bad back and neck pain and daily headaches for the past couple of weeks
-Thursday: went to see the chiropractor, had some things adjusted, was given some advice
-Thursday night/early Friday morning: threw up violently due to what I'm sure was food poisoning
-Friday: laid in bed all day
-Saturday: had a lazy day
-Sunday: woke up super, super stiff and cranky
-Monday (yesterday) we did (among other things) the following:

Went for a little family hike with Lisa.
Don't be fooled by that shady look on her face.  She loved being in the backpack and fell asleep in it on the way back down.
The view from the top of the waterfall.

Then we hiked back down and had a really healthy lunch.

After that, we all got back in the car and headed up to IKEA where Bryan and I bought...
...this little desk!

We decided it's time we stopped stooping over the laptop from the couch, so we got this little desk.  And we're planning on getting a yoga ball to sit at the desk with to help with my posture problems.  But I'm completely at a loss for what kind and size of yoga ball to buy.  I'm about 5'4", so should I buy a 65cm ball or a 75cm ball?  Does anybody know?  I don't.  Or does anybody know if there's a store that had a bunch of them inflated so I can go and try out the different sizes?  If any of you have suggestions or recommendations please please please let me know in the comments.

Anyway, we did some other stuff yesterday, but I'm getting bored talking about it (although it was fun to do), so... the end.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Katie, I just googled "what size yoga ball do i need" and bunch of websites came up. I didn't have time to look at them all, but this one has a little chart based on your height:

You'll probably want to run the google search and read more of the websites.

What a wonderful outing! Thanks for all the great pictures. So glad you're feeling better, and congrats on losing 30 POUNDS!! Wow, that is an amazing milestone!

The desk looks so great! Thanks for being up for hiking even though you didn't feel 100%. It was super fun.

Glad you are feeling better- my ball is a 65cm (remember that blue one in our apartment..?) and serves me just fine as long as I keep it inflated really well (air leaks out slowly and you don't even realize it...I pump mine every couple of weeks to make sure it is really firm)

And congrats on the big 30 pound mark! Have a banana with cool whip to celebrate! :)

Wow Katie 30 lbs that is great! I am glad to see the desk and plans to get the ball, I bet those two things will really help your back.

Yahoo! You have come so far!
No running? :( Race day is quickly approaching.
You are still awesome, though!

We'd love to hear from you!
