I confess half way through the week I didn’t know if I was going to have good news to share… This past week my husband and I went away for two days alone. Not having kids to get up in the morning meant I also didn’t get up and exercise. So two days off from exercise and eating out way more than normal makes for a hard week on a diet. I also wasn’t so good about ordering the healthy options. Breakfast may have been buttermilk pancakes and lunch might have included a scoop of ice cream…
When we got home I was up a pound, but we are going to consider it not a “real” pound since it was gone a day later. That’s just the joys of being a girl I think. I can look at a glass of water and get bloated, and smelling dinner comes with calories too. Do guys struggle with this??
After a mid week slump though, I’m happy to report that I’m only one fifth of a pound away from my goal of being at 175 by this weekend!! The annual Becoming conference starts on Friday, so I have 4 more days to lose .2 pounds. I think I’ve got this! Not that I’m going to slack, really the bigger goal was 165 by 9/1 and that’s still going to be super tough to lose 10 lbs in a month. It can be done and is still in the healthy range, so I’m pulling up my big girl panties and plowing ahead.
This weeks numbers:
Starting Weight (20 weeks ago): 202
Last Week: 177.6
Current Weight: 175.2
Goal Weight: 165
My big goal this week is to still try for 5 workouts even while running a conference. So if you see me running around Lake Junaluska this weekend, feel free to join in! My other goal is water and a ton of it. I’m bad about drinking when I’m busy, so I’m strapping my water bottle to me. Now to avoid the cake room, chocolate bar and buttermilk pancakes…
