So far this week has been a pretty good week. I got out to do some cardio on Sunday, so that was nice. Monday was a pretty decent day, and today I took a half day for my doctors appointment this afternoon, so I managed to get in some extra cardio doing some DDR too.
The doctors appointment today was a consultation for the surgery to get this lump removed. The actual surgery is June 2nd, the first Monday I'm out of school. He said the recovery shouldn't be too bad, but I'll find out more about that at my pre-op appointment at the end of this month. I will be completely under for the surgery, which I opted for once he told me about the procedure. I guess it's a pretty deep mass, and the last thing I want is to hear (or worse yet, see) them diggin' around down there. So I'm glad I'm getting that done, but I'm bummed that its going to hinder my exercise for a while. That will be tough.
Unfortunately because of the appointment today I had to miss my fitness class :( But I made up for it a little bit by doing some DDR for 20 minutes. So that feels good.

Holy crap! I lost 1/2 lb! I wasn't expecting to lose ANYTHING this week, especially after going out to dinner last night. All of my measurements stayed the same, but the scale showed a loss! That RULES!

I just wrote this awesome, insipring post, and GONE. Stupid internet.
Here's the abridged version:
I pampered myself today. I have myself a wonderful hour-long, much needed pedicure. I used up almost all of the hot water doing it, but my feet feel wonderful, and ready to carry me into the next week.
Husband and I are going on a date tonight to an Italian restaurant called "Lo Sole Mio." It came recommended by some staff members at school. I already know that I'm having the Pasta Roma (pasta, chicken, broccoli, roasted tomatoes, tossed with garlic and olive oil, and sprinkled with parmesan cheese) and its served with a side salad and they put bread with olive oil and roasted garlic on the table beforehand. I've eaten light today so I can allow for myself to really enjoy dinner. Not go nuts, just enjoy it.
I realize that going out to dinner (nonetheless an Italian restaurant) probably isn't the best idea on an evening before I want to reweigh, but I don't really care. I'm happy with staying the same this week after everything that happened in the past few days. If I'm up tomorrow, I know its due to water retention and I will reweigh next week. I know that I can go out to eat and still "be good." I don't have to worry about over stuffing myself anymore.
I don't know when or why it changed, but I'm feeling much better about this whole thing. Earlier in the week, I was feeling very weak and unmotivated. Challenged. I was having trouble finding my "spark" or whatever you want to call it. I don't know if it was the gigantor steak I had the other night that finally told my body to stop its whining, or if it was the fact that I just really needed a weekend, or what. But something changed, and I'm feeling much better now. Stronger. Much more in control. And I think that I might just be stronger than I've been giving myself credit for.

Well, I stayed the same today. Better than I could have hoped for, really. Husband pointed out, too, that with the bootcamp videos, I'm doing much more strength training than I have been, so that could be affecting things. I am going to reweigh tomorrow, though, just to see what happens. Truthfully, though, I'd be okay with staying the same after the week I've had!!

I did the bootcamp video yesterday, the hips, butt and thighs one.
Wowza my hips are aching today. That was the first one that I can actually FEEL the next day. Ouchies. The fact that I did it right after my fabulous Abs class probably doesnt help either. But ouch.
