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.

So yesterday, I had an epiphany that maybe I was low on iron due to the impending doom of my period next week. So for dinner, I had an 8 oz sirloin steak, corn on the cob, and two little slices of garlic bread. Even after all of that, I WAS STILL HUNGRY. How is that possible? I don't understand whats going on with my body this week, but its making me very nervous for my weigh in tomorrow.
As of this morning, I was up .8, however I did have quite a lot of sodium (mostly due to the seasoning on the steak) yesterday.
So tomorrow is weigh in, and I'm determined to make today a good day. For breakfast I had some grapes and cottage cheese, and when I got to school they were having a baby/bridal shower in the library which means donuts and bagels and goodies. I should have avoided it all together, but I opted for 1/4 of a bagel with a 1/2 tbsp of cream cheese. That was only about 113 calories, and since my original breakfast wasnt too bad, it put me at about 247 for breakfast. For lunch I brought ravioli and some assorted goodies, and by the time I get home tonight I will have eaten less than 800 calories. I am going to bring home Subway for dinner, and that will put me, with chips, right around my minimum for the day, slightly under to allow for one small snack later in the evening. I hope this keeps me full.
I'm hoping that by planning out my day ahead of time I will stay on track today, and maybe shake something for my weigh in tomorrow. I know I need to drink tons of water, and husband and I are going to work out tonight, so that will help. If I have a good weigh in, I'm hoping that will set me straight into the next week so I can get out of this funk that I've been in this week. I hope that if it is a bad weigh in, the same thing will happen. We'll see I guess. I really just don't know what to expect. I'm trying to be optimistic, though.
