After posting her pics here on FitBuff for the last few weeks, Alley decided to start her own website, so her progress pics and stats on now on her new health and fitness blog here:
Here are this week's progress pictures and measurements for me…
Weight: 175.4 pounds (-7.0lb from last measurement)
Waist: 32.0 inches (-1.0" from last week)
Well, I finally figured out what that throat sickness I mentioned last time was… mononucleosis.
Needless to say, it was awful, and my throat was so sore that I could barely eat for days. Thanks to my body's uncanny ability to return myself to the stick-figure shape I had before working out, I dropped a whopping 17 pounds in two weeks!
Yes, I've heard the, "Then I wish I had mono," jokes, but I didn't really have the extra 17 pounds to lose, so now I'm trying to put it back on, slowly but surely and using as many healthy and organic options as I can, instead of just loading up on junky, fatty foods.
I'm cleared for working out again this week, so I'm going to start off very slowly. One of the things about mono is your spleen swells, and though it's very rare, intense exercise or strenuous activity can cause the spleen to rupture. They say to give it a full 4 weeks to be safe, and it's been just about that long now.
Has anyone else out there had mono? How much weight did you lose?
