I got up this morning at the normal 4:58AM. I went potty and then weighed. I was down to 146.4. I usually don't drop like that this deep into a weight loss period. I am pleased with 0.5-1 pound a week so this was really exciting. I am still religiously doing my exercises and doing pretty good with nutrition also. It seems to be paying off. I am going to lower my goal weight. I set it forever ago and I am close enough now to adjust it with a little more idea of what it will really be like. I had set my goal weight at 142 but now I think 134 will be an appropriate weight. I am excited since it has been a long time since I weighed in the 130's. Here is to setting an surpassing goals!
This week has been weird. Yesterday was awful but I shook it off pretty well with a 45 minute walk last night. Today has started okay but who knows how it will end. It is still early. I am hoping for a good day. I could use it about now. I did my exercise this morning and may go for another walk this evening after work. It worked well yesterday. It is supposed to be scattered thunder storms all afternoon but you can never tell. I am sure it will all work itself out!
I am up and at 'em today. I did my FF&FU and an hour on my Life Cycle, got ready and came to work. I seem to be energized for some reason. My hubby and I went for a short 30 minute walk last night which was very nice. It is humid in NM for the last couple days and I look like a damn Q-tip. That is one thing I do not miss from growing up in the South...humidity. My hair is a completely different animal in the Southwest. I had to upgrade moisturizer and conditioner but that seems like a small price to pay for good hair days. I think we are going to Jason's Deli for lunch. I can have a cup of SW Chicken Chili and half a Mediterranean Wrap and be within my calorie requirements, no problems!
Well we are at another Monday. The entire week ahead of me. No clue how it will go or how I will react to it. Oddly that is comforting. I had a great weekend. I was down on the scale and we went on a little road trip. I am really hoping for an outstanding week. I don't usually go out to lunch much anymore. It is easier to control my caloric intake if I bring my lunch...not to mention more cost effective. We are going to Pei Wei today since they have a buy one entrée get one free special. They have a salad that is outstanding and fits my diet perfectly. Of course I only eat half. I will take the rest home for dinner unless I find someone who wants to go and split it with me. That is the perfect plan. The person I usually split with is off today since it is her b-day. Well here is to a great lunch and fantastic week!
Well we didn't get abducted but it is a very interesting little place. I enjoyed the trip. I can mark that off my list now. It would have been even more fun if we had been during the week they celebrate the Roswell event but this was okay and less crowded. We stopped at a really cute restaurant and I had a footlong chili cheese dog and fries. The thing is I stopped when I was full so I only ate half the dog and a quarter of the fries. I actually had to eat a snack when we got home because I had held back on my calories so I could splurge on my dinner without causing too much damage. It was really good but I didn't miss it as much as I thought. I didn't gain either (at least yet). I am still at 147.2, only 5.2 pounds to go! It came the mother of all rainstorms while we were coming back. That is really rare in NM but it does happen sometimes. It made it a little less fun but still it was a totally fun day. I got up this morning and did my exercise bike for 45 minutes even though I didn't have to. I want to make sure I put in the time to offset the occasional "free meal" as my friend calls them. Not to toot my own horn but I am really pleased with my results over the last few months since joining the web site. I am going to get off here and cheer my Nascar driver, Jeff Gordon, on. Looks like he needs it now. Hope we all have a great week!
