Fat-Rat Mid Week (Whipped and Purdy)

Hello My Fellow Rats!

This week has been pretty good.  I am keeping in my fitness routine rather nicely.  Still keeping with my Physical Activity Calorie targets, still moving everyday.  I am whipped from today's cardio.  Can't you tell?

Today, I ran my best time to date:  under 15 minute mileage.  I am on week 3 of C25K.  I know this is probably slow for most, but for me, this is saying something.  I never thought my fat a$$ would ever run.  Well, unless something was chasing me.  It is satisfying to know that if someone chased me, perhaps someday soon I will not be caught... and if I am really snarky, they will choke on my dust!!  My nemesis right now is the potty.  I had to pee so badly at the 50 minute mark that I just had to stop.  It is really hard to do the pee-pee dance when you are running.

Lost some poundage this week too:  down 3.1 lbs.  Not too shabby.  I will take it for sure.  This brings me to a little over 40lbs lost.  So cool.  I am really looking forward to loosing the next 10 pounds.  When I do this, it means I will be a weight I have not been in at least 7 years.  7 years with an extra 50 lbs on my bones.  What the hell was I thinkin'?!?  I'll tell ya.  I was thinkin' Krispy Kreme baby.

For those of you who haven't had the pleasure, Krispy Kreme donuts are ridiculously good.  Hot, glazed are my favs.  I could easily inhale them in seconds.  However, I think they are pure trans-fats and are linked to cancer, heart disease and funny sores in monkeys, rats and flies.  :-)

So, now for the Purdy.  Remember the dress from last week I told you guys about?  Well, here is me in it.  I think I am fillin' out just fine.  If this was a year ago, you would never hear me tootin' my own horn.  So, if I sound vain, just think of it as a catch up for lost time!! I have a waist dang it!!

Hope you guys have a strong ending to this week!  I am cheering you on!!


  1. Keep up the great work Missa and you look beautiful in your dress. Tonight is my big push before weigh in so I am bringing my "A Game."

  2. That is a lovely dress and according to WNTW it accentuates your features nicely :)

    Keep it up Missa you are doing wonderful!

  3. wow! what a great week! are your feet touching the ground? isn't it the best to wear that dress and be so close to a weight you haven't been for seven years?!?!!?

  4. Awesome loss! And good job with the dress!

    I could breath in Krispy Kreme glazed donuts too. I'm sooooo grateful there isn't a store close by!

  5. Way to go girl!! I hate running with a passion...I'll do anything else. Lunge for an hour straight over running...

    The dress looks great on you :)

    I swear Krispy Kreme is liking eating air. I can eat so many of those and feel like I ate nothing at all. I think that company made them that way on purpose :)

  6. Krispy Kreme - one of those few places that really, really tempt me!
