today's weight 213.2....loss of .4 lbs. I guess a loss is a loss right?!?!
So my totals are:
61.6 lbs down since 8/22/12!
47.0 lbs down since surgery on 10/15/12!
I don't think I am ever going to reach that 1/2 way point! Ugh!! 3.4 lbs to go to get there. I hope this isn't the sign of a plateau....I really dislike plateaus, I get so discouraged. But I feel like its been forever since I've been working on this 1/2 way point! Too high of expectations maybe?
One more month! Friday 15 more people were laid off. If was sad and I actually teared up some. Many of the people that left Friday were people that I have worked closely with over the last 7 years. So naturally there was a Happy Hour and I had a lot to drink. I danced most of the evening and tried to drink a bunch of water. Pretty sure it was Friday night that hindered things this weekend. Gotta get that partying under control. Anyway, Friday was Ronnie Rayguns, and 80's cover band. They are pretty good!
I drank these Skinny Tropical Teasers all night. Which had 135 calories each. I had several. I also had several shots with the group. They were good!
Exercising was good, and I thought food was pretty good. I do think I'm retaining water and I would bet the scale tomorrow morning will be even lower than it is today. Friday night I swam and we danced,
Saturday was a rest day. K & J had a tennis match so we went to that and I took a nap in the afternoon, LOL, I was tired.
Sunday was my first attempt at a full 5K run. All in all I think I did pretty good. I didn't make it all 3.1 miles. But I did make it 2.33. My head started hurting at that point and I could feel & hear the pounding in my ears, I took that as a sign to stop. This is the farthest I have run at one time yet! When I started this journey 6 months ago I couldn't run 10 feet let alone 2 miles. And prior to yesterday the farthest I had gone was about 1.5 miles. So I feel accomplished. I jogged the 2.33 and walked the remainder home. My legs felt like jello! So I will try to go a bit farther tomorrow. I will get there!
This is my absolute favorite things to do after I run! I love soaking in the tub!
Tonight is a swim night. I am also implementing a no eating/snacking/drinking policy after 8 pm! I know this wont happen everyday because life seems to get in the way, but I am shooting for 90% of the time! I am hoping this will help!
I also need to work on the sugar. I want to try a sugar detox, but I am not sure, do I stay away from friuts too? Can I still have fake sugar? (i.e. Splenda) Any ideas?
OK I am going to get to my blog reading! I may be commenting on your posts from a few days ago. Sorry, I am behind :) Hugs to everyone! And thanks for stopping by!
