Last week: 179.2
Waist: same as last time, 34.75 in.
It was a stressful week (see previous post), but my car is back (with a suspicious low level clunk sound when I make sharp rights and lefts, but I want to drive a bit and see if it persists before complaining). Steering is way easier, now that the steering module has been replaced. NO herky jerky "wheel is possessed" movements so far. Yay.
I had hoped to be .6 or fewer lbs , but let's face it, I didn't stay at 1500 cals every day and I didn't exercise 5 days this week, so, who am I kidding. Stress eating (not a lot, but some) messed things up.
I suspect the weigh-in is better than I expected (I expected a gain) cause I slept 14 hours last night. I just crashed. It felt good to just wake up when my body wanted to...
Okay, recap: I got my two strengthening sessions in with trainer. I walked x 3. So I missed my cardio goal. Fluids were fine 6/7 days. I nearly made my goal of losing 1/2 pound.
I visited some challenger blogs, but not many.
This weekend, I've totally vegged. No excuses. Just did. It's been rainy and I didn't wanna move. There it is. I"m a slug.
Did have hubby take a pic yesterday when we went to Miami Lakes to get my car from the dealer's service center (no charge, warranty covered it, and thank God, as i think it expires next month). I visited my sis, who lives there, and then went to get some grilled chicken at CHICKEN KITCHEN , as I felt no desire whatsoever to cook.
We took the pics with one of the plainer examples of "cow art" that dot the city. My sister has lived there since the 70's, back when the city was full of REAL cows grazing all over. Now, most of the cows are gone (some still can be seen), but the art is a reminder of quieter, more bovine days.
See? Not big as a cow anymore? ; )
For me, my NSVs--yes, multiple-- this week were ~~
1. not letting NOT having my car keep me from my Pilates session
2. keeping some rein over my eating when I wanted to carb it up the wahoo
3. having my BIL yesterday look me up and down when he let me into his townhome and say, "You look good. Really, really good." :D And the sincerity and emphasis in his tone was very cheering. :D :D He's known me since I was 13 and 130 lbs....through my weigh escalation and topping out at 300 when I was 44. Now, I'm 52. It was a very victorious moment, emotionally.
Okay...I'm out of update, so I'm winding this up. Goals for next week:
weight: 1/2 pound down
exercise: same, 2x strength, 4x cardio
fluids: 10 cups a daycalories: 1500 a day cap
Be well, all!
