So I've forgotten how completely annoying it is to track each and every calorie you take in!
It's so easy to get out of the habit and once you do, it's just bad news. It's so easy to eyeball something and go "yep, that's green, I bet it's good for me!" I got out of the habit of tracking while I was in DC, and even though I've been working out like a fiend, I haven't really been tracking calories so much. As a result, I've been bouncing between the same five pounds for a month.
:D But last night, I made it to the grocery store and I've packed my lunch two days in a row. I'm getting back into the swing of things, so hopefully by next February, I'll have ditched half of the rest of the 40 pounds I'm trying to skinny off.

So tonight, I was supposed to have worship practice, which was going to be my oh-so-convenient excuse for not going to the gym, even though I've only gone once this week so far. In my defense, I was in the car 8 hours on Monday, and I did do some heavy-duty kickboxing last night. Nevertheless, in order to get my three 1/2 hour strength training sessions in this week, I gotta go tonight. Cry. My body is still sore, for crying out loud! Mercy!
And now I'm home I'm sitting here thinking about how this is going to suck up all my time tonight. I'll go to the gym, come home, cook dinner, pay bills and it'll be time to plop back into bed for tomorrow's repeat. Booooo, says I. Joining the gym was part of the process of simplifying life, to be sure, but now I just feel like a workout hermit!
And sadly, one who is not losing weight! Yesterday, I weighed in at my fitness group as 174.
I weighed 175 when I started this time! and I weighed 171 on my bathroom scale this morning, but COME ON. I've been working out harder than I've ever worked out in my life - not a lie - and I am just not seeing the weight or the inches come off this time around. Frustrating to the max!
Oh well, I guess if I just sit here making up excuses, I'm never going to actually go, huh?
Better hop to.

So I just did one of the P90x kickboxing videos with a bunch of folks from my church...
I am a wuuuuuuuuuuuss! With capital letters and exclamation points and italics and bold font and underscores. Sheesh! It was hard work!
:D but I feel tougher for having finished it. >D Rawr! Take that, unnamed indefinable thing I'm up against. ;)

So my friend Jen's family has a lake house. And it's awesome. Every summer she gets a group together and we go up and spend a weekend boating, tubing, swimming, and driving around on her jet ski. Once we're all brutally exhausted we come back to shore, light a fire, chow down on smores and fire pies and, at the end of the weekend, collapse!
I have to be honest, I ate TERRIBLY over the weekend. But! I still lost weight, so I'm going to call it a win.
I'm slowly reorganizing my life so I can get back to around 1,200 calories a day. I'd forgotten how difficult it was to plan every meal ahead of time!
Still, baby steps, right?
:) And the gym has been going well! My trainer wanted to do chest/back stuff yesterday which was KILLER after the tubing, but I'm excited to keep going and hopefully get a little more in shape.
Plus, my church is going to be launching this wicked-sweet program on Wednesday nights that is going to be geared toward wholistic fitness and such, so I'm excited to start that, too.
So much busyness! o.o
