FAF, 5QF, Oh My!

It’s Friday! Happy dance time! (Don’t try to picture it, it isn’t pretty).
I wasn’t sure if I should join in with Fat Ass Friday, or 5 Question Friday… then I decided that I would just do both, and maybe a little extra random what-not thrown in.
I went to see Dr. Yummy on Wednesday and he gave me the go ahead to start working with my trainer again, which is good because I had already started on Tuesday. My body is sore, my shoulder hurts but I think that is to be expected. My trainer is working around my restrictions but kicking my ass just the same. I can’t believe how fast you lose strength and tone but I’m anxious to get it back.
I see Dr. Yummy again in 6 weeks, I’m going to take my camera and make someone take our picture together (his nurse is my uncle’s sister so it’s almost like we’re family, right? Except that you can’t run off into the sunset with family, so maybe not).
So for the FAF portion of the post: Since starting Weight Watchers in June (I think that’s when it was), I went from 185 pounds and am currently 147 pounds (I can NOT believe I just put that on the internet). I’m pretty happy with where I am weight-wise and glad that I didn’t gain during my recovery and the holidays. If I could get down another 5 pounds I would be thrilled but I’m not going to be disappointed if I can’t get there, it may be a little out of realistic reach.  Some friends and I did some bridesmaid dress shopping over the weekend and I actually had a lot of fun putting on those cute little dresses!
OK, time for 5QF:
1.       What have you done recently that you are proud of?
This is pretty silly for a lot of people, but I have had Braces, appliances or some sort of retainers every single day of my life since the 3rd grade. I was born missing my lateral incisor on the left and only a little teeny tiny one on the right. On Monday I had my crown placed in the implant that was done in July (it takes 6 months to heal). I finally ate an apple whole and have no orthodontic “work” going on. Probably this summer I will have the other one pulled (it has a crown on it now) and have another implant, but I want to enjoy a little freedom and a few apples (and carrots!) until then.

2.       What is your favorite way to work out? Or if you don't workout, what are you wanting to try?
I love working with my trainer… we only work for 30-40 minutes, but he doesn’t let up the whole time and makes me do things I would never do on my own. I love having someone to kick me into shape. I wouldn’t mind learning to box either (just for the workout, I don’t actually want anyone to hit me).

3.       If you knew you best friend was cheating on spouse would you tell?
Only if I knew, 100% for sure without a doubt, proof to show. If I suspected, I would have to have a serious, private talk with the “accused offender” but to be wrong about something like that would be completely devastating to so many people.

4.       If you could afford a live-in maid or nanny, would you have one?
Hell yes, let me state that again… HELL YES!! I can’t afford it, but if you want to come anyway… be my guest. I would love to come home to a clean house and to be able to leave the house, alone, anytime I wanted.

5.       Do you stress out about birthdays (specifically the age) or do you enjoy them?
I stressed about my last one (turning 30), but other than that not really. Stressing isn’t going to make the day get here any slower. I try to think of all I’ve accomplished in my years and that usually makes me feel ok about things.
