So compared to last sunday I gained 0.4 lbs this week. However, I am being positive. 1st... I am still 4 lbs ahead of schedule. In order to be 160 by my Aug vacation I had to lose 2 lbs a week. My goal weight for today was to be 198 and I am 194. I also know that I was not able to exercise like I wanted to this week. I worked out Monday evening and then did the treadmill before work on Tues. Since tues the side of my foot has been in a lot of pain. It feels like I am walking on the outside of my foot instead of stepping straight down on my foot. I got a pedicure Thurs and yesterday I got a massage at my favorite spa. My foot felt better during the pedicure and massage. This morning it isn't hurting too bad so I think I'm going to try to do the gym again. However, I feel like not being able to do the gym impacted my weight loss this week. I also made plans with a coworker to start walking on the track before school. I am very excited to start that up after spring break. I can also say with confidence that I did not eat poorly.
Calories this week...
Sat (yesterday)- 1191
Even on Monday when I went to my parents house for a BBQ I still stuck to water and ate appropriately. I am also excited to say that my bf signed up for SP and is looking to lose some weight. I bought the Spark book for a few of my friends. I also bought the FitBit last night! I LOOOOOVE IT! I love the graph showing how long it took me to fall asleep, how many times I woke up during the night, my sleep efficiency, etc. It tracks the number of steps you take, the number of stairs you climb, the percentage of the day you were fairly active, moderately active, and very active, etc. I am very excited about tracking my steps again and starting to challenge my old records from 2008/2009. I have to leave to get ready for tutoring, but I am not going to let this very slight gain this week damper my spirits. My pants are still loose, I am still getting compliments, I like my pictures better, and I am still happy.
My new favorite quote from the spark book....
"You don't drown by falling in the water, only by staying there."
