Weekly Update Blog --- WUB

Well it was a crazy week! I had a tough work schedule. Friday I worked 10 and 1/2 hours with children. That was a long day. I got a big headache and could not workout much. Anything I did made it worse. So I came home took a shower and went to sleep after a snack.

I did get to buy some smaller pants. I got a size 14/16 and size 16 yesterday. I was so darn excited. If my pants keep getting smaller I can handle the scale not moving much. I was wearing a size 26/28 pants when I began this weight loss journey so this was a big victory for me.

I am still stuffy from being sick last week and not back to normal. Due to this I have not done as well with excerise as I had hoped. :(

Here is how I have been on my goals.

May 2012 Goals

Exercise 2500+ minutes --- --- A little behind but still close
Run/Walk 3 times a week --- --- UPDATE---Still feeling sick so I decided to walk Saturday. So for the time being I may be doing less running....

    Congratulations on buying smaller pants, you must be ecstatic. I have a ton of smaller jean sizes in my closet that I refused to throw away, so I have an arsenal of size 10-18 pants waiting for me.
    Love the quote, it's so true, I always have these extreme expectations and when their not achieved I go into this crazy mindset.
    I had a crazy Friday also, which I ended by going out with the girls, mad good food choices, but went a tad overboard on the alcohol. The best I can do is make better choices today and tomorrow.
