Week ?? Weigh In

It's been a few weeks since I weighed in and reported so I'm not sure what week this really is.

Change this week:  -1.0
Total Loss:  84 pounds
Weight Loss Percentage :  28.49%

It's official - I won't hit my mini-goal of under 200 by Labor Day.  That's ok - it's been a rough summer but I'm slowly going in the right direction.

Who Are You Walking With?

The other day I was on my way to my kettlebell class.  On the radio they were talking about this new personality test that is just one question and is supposed to tell you what kind of person you are.

You are supposed to answer this question with the very first thing that pops into your head.

Are you ready?

You are walking through the woods.  Who is with you?

Most people answered with things like a boyfriend/girlfriend, spouse, child, parents, dog, etc.  One person said they were walking with Bear Grylls.  And although I think he's yummy, I'm not sure what kind of woods they thought they were walking through.

Are you ready for my answer?


At first I thought I must be some sort of self-centered socio-path.

But then it hit me.  It makes perfect sense.  For the first time in a long time (if not ever) I am being selfish - selfish of my food choices, of the time I'm putting aside for exercise.  I'm putting me first.

And I'm ok with that.

Yeah, I Know!

I haven't blogged in forever.  I'm super busy right now with a musical that opens this weekend.

I haven't been running - but I have still been going to my kettlebell class.  (and right now I can't lift my arms!)

I didn't weigh in last week, and I wasn't going to be able to do it this week either.  So, I decided to go tonight to a different center and weigh in.

I'm not posting it because I'm not happy.  According to my weigh in at home this morning, I should have been down between 2-3 pounds.  When I weighed in, I was up 0.2.  Something wasn't right with that, so I'm going to ignore it until next week!

I'll be back to regular posting when Cinderella is done!

Week 61 Weigh In

Change this week: -1.8
Total lost:  83.2
Weight Loss Percentage:  28.22%

WOW!!!!  I was at my parent's house for 6 days.  During those 6 days I didn't track....not one thing.  Now, I did have good healthy meals where I weighed and measured my food, but I also snacked.  Sunday was the worst as I went to a 4th of July party at my aunt's house.  I grazed ALL day and not on the most healthy food.  Plus I had a cupcake (icing and all) and a piece of ice cream pie!!!

Then, on the drive home yesterday, I just about finished a 10 ounce bad of Moose Munch from Harry and David!  

I did run twice while at my parent's house, but only for a total of 4 miles in the two runs.

I don't know why I had such a big loss this week and it's possible that next week will be a gain, but I'm going to enjoy this while I can!
