Over the weekend I weighed in at my first goal, 172. I had been hovering between 1.5 and 2 pounds just above this for about two weeks, so I was really excited. Then official weigh-in day comes and...174?!?!? Frustrating. I know that I have been half-a**ing it, but at the same time, I haven't completely been blowing it either. So, I'm making some resolutions for the coming week. I want to get serious and start moving that scale down again and getting back into my old clothes.
All week: stay strictly in my calorie range. Track all foods religiously.
Exercise: Today - Biggest Loser DVD, dog walk. Tomorrow - dog walk. Friday - pool exercise, dog walk. Saturday - hike, dog walk. Sunday - ballet class and beach (and dog walk)!
There. I've written it in "blog stone."
Here's hoping that next week we'll see some progress. Next week it will be just over a month since the boyfriend and I joined sparkpeople, and it will be time to update measurements.
Speaking of boyfriend, the start of the fall semester was on Monday, and while he's excited and happy, I see him winding up stress-wise because he wants to do well (he made the Dean's list last semester!). So I'm worrying a little - about him, about how school will impact the flow/routine around the house, what I will need to pick up duty-wise to help him minimize his stress and be successful... He takes care of a lot of stuff when he's not in school and I know I take at least some of it for granted, so I'm just wondering what I didn't think of that's going to pop up and take me by surprise. I think we'll be fine though. I just like to be prepared, it eases my anxiety! lol.
