Doing well.

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Today was an amazing day. Last night was too. I watched Thor with my boyfriend. We've never seen it before and we loved it! Nommed on popcorn and cuddled up watching the movie, quoted memes and laughed. He woke me up early in the morning. *ahem* Sadly, since I was so comfy in his bed I didn't get moving until almost 2PM. I felt bad but I read some of The Spark today that made me not feel so bad anymore.
I'm going to stop beating myself up about not getting things done. I have a tendency to do that a lot. It's upsetting and stresses me out. I did the 10-minute workout video on the website by Coach Nicole and wow! It's actually pretty intense for 10 minutes. I also went over to a friends and when I got off the bus I started up the pedometer app on my phone. It wasn't a lot but it was something. I was happy.

I didn't get a lot done today but I got to spend time with friends. We frosted and decorated cupcakes. Watched a really horrible Japanese horror movie that almost made me cry and walk out of the room a few times. Had some pizza too. A lot of pizza. emoticon Ah well, what can you do? You have to indulge sometime or you're just not living! I hope I lost some weight this week or I will have to reset my goal. emoticon Not sure how I feel about that. Maybe I should remove the ticker from my profile and just do what I can.

When I first started this program I weight 140lbs, I am at 126 now. Funny thing, I worked out really hard and then just stopped for a couple of months and it seemed like the weight just kind of fell off by itself. Hmm, I wonder if it was a "settle down" kind of thing? Not sure but I am glad it happened. I also lost weight working at Hallmark. Weird I know but around the end-of-the-year holidays it gets pretty bad. They keep a lot of the boxes for figurines in the back room so when someone wants one we have to go get it and that's a lot of walking in one day. It gets pretty bad at the job I'm at now but I don't seem to be losing as much. Well, actually it seems that my waist line is getting smaller. emoticon
I need to start taking measurements.

    lol yay jobs being exercise! I can feel ya...I run around like a chicken with me head cut off most days at work. Glad to hear your weight loss is progressing- but hey! when you have lots of popcorn and pizza, be sure to measure it out and track it- that's the only way you'll know for sure if you will lose this week or not. It just gets harder the closer you get to goal weight...or if you've battling it for years, like me. lol. Good luck this week! (also, wasn't Thor amazing? I mean...those ABS!)

    That's really awesome! I think that being kinder to yourself is a good attitude. I wouldn't worry overmuch if you don't lose weight this week; remember that losing weight isn't a linear process. Some weeks you'll lose, some you won't, others you may even gain... this is totally normal! This is because our bodies aren't calculators. ;) Especially us women... we run on a four-week cycle!
