At the very top you will see my Week 6 Reverse Diet progress pictures (nice tan, huh?) as compared to Week 1 (directly below that set of pictures).
Height: 5’8 3/4″
Weight: 127.4 this morning (129.4 at my week 5 recap / 134.8lb at end of cut).
Gosh darn-it, my weight is down. When I got back from Mexico I was 129.6 and then…I was back in the ER on Saturday for an IV and another slew of tests. The good news is that my Serum CK is now 68 and totally normal, so I am over the Rhabdo, but I now have a kidney infection and another infection (It’s a girl thing…awesome). I hate taking antibiotics and try to do everything I can to stay off of them, but I am sure glad they exist when I truly NEED them and this is one of those times.
I definitely do not want to lose any more weight, which is why I have increased my calories at a faster rate than I usually do…again.

Monday -Thursday & Saturday 1555 calories 125C / 140P / 55F

I was able to workout at our resort gym 4 of the days when we were in Mexico. I took it REALLY easy and did about 30 minutes of walking at an incline and followed that by 30 minutes of light weights or band work. Nothing strenuous.
I will not be working out until I am well.
We had a great time in Cabo, Mexico. It was fun for my husband and I to go on vacation with just the two of us (though I LOVE going on vacation with our kiddos). He had some great rounds of golf and I was able to relax.
I even managed to win a jump rope contest! I won a round of margaritas for our table, so that was fun. The man pictured with me won the push-up contest. You’ve gotta love the fact that the oldest woman (me) and the oldest man (him) won both competitions!!!
The day before we left I went on a long walk on the beach and that was just what I needed. You can’t take the California out of the girl…the beach will always have a huge place in my heart.
Now we are home and I am ready to let these two antibiotics keep doing their thing. I think I am about DONE being sick. Hopefully I just got it all out of the way for a very long time.
