Week in review

Saturday, February 13, 2010

well - it was a crazy week.

I ate alot during the Super Bowl.....I ate like a cow on Tuesday for dinner....too busy at work to walk like I needed to walk too. Snowed Thursday, most in Dallas history. Had to figure out HOW to get out of my cul de sac with atleast 8" of snow in it and get drive to work after I thought I would work from the house all day. That made me really happy, hardy har har.

I've been using the elliptical alot, at least 30 min a day, and only managed to lose 2.2 lbs this week. I'm disappointed by that, but I know that I can rebound and drop more next week, atleast that's my goal. I'm almost to 30lbs down and I can't wait to get there.

    I agree with ST; you've been on a tear and now your body is going fight you. It thinks you're going into a starvation and is going to fight you on losing.

Stick with it and the results will show.

    Patience grasshopper. There are always weeks that are slower than others, some for obvious reasons like above and some that we can't.

We will make it, even over bumpy roads and detours.

    I agree that this sounds cool. I might have to giv it a look next year. 5K is still pretty daunting sounding to me now.

    Only 8 inches! Come on up to Connecticut and see what a couple of feet look like...what a hassle a snowstorm brings to everyone. Pretty to look at, but you need to stay safe and warm. Hope the cleanup is not too much!

WOW - what a week. I worked really hard last week, and it shows. I lost another 6.2 lbs last week alone!! Pls forgive me for saying, good for me. I've been sticking to my plan for the month of February and working alot getting good calorie burns when I'm doing it.

Hard to believe that on Dec. 28th I was 264lbs and Feb 6th I was 237.5 lbs.
