Need a little more oompf...

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

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.

    Remember, the difference between "try" and "triumph" is just a little "umph"! Love each other and be there for each other and you'll be just fine. Best of luck!

    baby, I love you. I truly appreciate everything you do for me everyday! I don't think things will need to change so dramatically, but I've also noticed your stress levels rising as well. Because I'm in school and stressing myself or because of other matters, I'm not sure. All I do know is that we feed off of each other, and as long as we work to lower our own stress and anxiety, I personally feel that we will do great. Stress is a part of life, and all we can do is try and make that stress affect us as little as possible. I love you, and though we have recently taken a light walk off of the wagon, at least we're still on the trail. We can do it baby, I know we can.
