I just realized, after seeing friends on Facebook post congrats to the Class of 2012, that I'm out of high school 20 years this year! Yikes!! Where did all of that time go?! For some reason, having this realization sparked something in me. When I graduated high school, I weighed 183. I think. I have records somewhere at home that I need to dig out.
I know I am not putting a weight goal on my weight loss efforts, but I would love nothing more than to see 183 pounds on the scale again! By my calculation, though I have no idea how much I weigh right now, I have about 42 pounds to lose to see that again. That's less than my goal, so I'm going to shoot for it! Without getting on a scale though. LOL
Sizes have changed so much in the last 20 years, but I would bet that that would put me into about a size 12 by today's standards. I have some 12's and 14's in my closet at home, so I can use those as a gauge. For now I'll be happy to at least fit into the clothes I brought for a trip to Hawaii with my Mom in October! Baby steps...
It's June 6th and I have to confess that on only one of the last 6 days did I eat within my goals. Today was borderline with having a little bit of naan with my dinner (as was the KFC the other day)(according to my measurements of what constitutes a failure from my goals) so I'm not going to count it as an off day. That being said, I still have two days left.
I'm going to use one of my last free days for my birthday, which is in a couple of weeks. Tomorrow is going to be a challenge. I'll be traveling to head back to work and already know that I'm going to need to grab breakfast at the airport. And a late lunch snack, also from the airport. I don't know if I'll be able to get through tomorrow unscathed, but I'm going to try.
I have high hopes for while I'm in Dutch Harbor this summer. I'm going to work the 6am-6pm shift, so will have a few hours after my shift free during normal hours to go for a hike or a run. During my shift, when I have a break between boats/samples, I'm going to walk as much extra as possible. AND I'm going to work on adding strength training to my daily routine.
I had this same goal last summer when I was in Akutan for 7 weeks, but it rained every day. It was a also a super stressful situation with my coworker and my job in general. I'm not anticipating diversions like that this summer. Not at all. This is going to be a great summer. The summer I finally get myself back on track! Mark my words.... It's gonna happen!
Congratulations Class of 2012!
