january has been a rough month. not bad, just rough. and combined with my inability [unwillingness?] to buckle down and get my head out of my butt, i missed some goals.
- definitely did NOT lose my holiday weight gain. just hung on to it.
- failed my counselors challenge of no extras until my birthday. that was last saturday and i've made NO attempt to correct it.
one of my friends took me out to dinner last night for my birthday and we had a good chat. i feel like it was pretty open and honest. talked about boys [sort of flirting with one but not sure he's aware or even interested], work[lots of stuff going on], working out, eating, and, well, life.
in fact, after work and before dinner, i went for my weekly run. supposed to be a 5k [3.1 mi]. about half way my brain was starting to override my body. and then, a friend scared the hell out of me by running up beside me [yay for blasting music lol]. she was looking for 8 miles
she stayed with me for the rest of my run. and it was fun to have someone to run with. i forgot about wanting to quit early and got my 5k distance, and then some! but more importantly, it allowed me to reach one goal this month.
just one. but i met it. i need to find my paper and see what my reward is supposed to be for it.....
back to my dinner chat w/ my friend. we talked about how i failed the challenge issued to me, when it started, etc. and in doing so, my friend issued a challenge:
no junk until valentine's day.
shouldn't be hard [i said this about the last challenge!]. at least this time i have money to buy healthy snacky things instead of the cheaper addicting ones. oiy.
and i think i'm going to stick with my goal to be at 220 by 3/1. it's possible. i think. *shrug* again, i need to find that paper i wrote it all down on.....
i'll look when i get back from the gym.
