Yes, yes, yes!!!!!! Did you check that number? 215! Down another few and I am sooooo happy! I wasn't sure how this was going to go. I was getting so anxious, particularly because I hadn't gotten on the treadmill all week, that I finally just jumped on the scale yesterday. I couldn't STAND it anymore. I know, I know. Can you spell "addiction." Hahaha. But, I am glad I got on. It made me feel a lot better. Not good enough to get on the treadmill, mind you. But I felt better.
So I was really pretty busy all day yesterday and finally got to bed about 1:45 in the morning. I try to get to bed much earlier, but it wasn't to be last night. Anyway, I was laying in bed and suddenly I got a creeping, icky feeling. Panic. Oh no!!! What if my weight today was just a fluke? Maybe tomorrow I am suddenly going to be 5 pounds heavier. Oh no, oh nooooo!! Toss and turn. Well, I HAVE to get that scale again tomorrow. Toss, turn. Toss, turn. And then I finally off to sleep. Until 8:15 a.m. Yoooo hooooo! When the mama oversleeps the whole house oversleeps. I LEAPT out of bed. . . . and of course ran straight to the scale. SAME! YES! Thank you Jesus! Who cares if everyone overslept???? I'm down 9 pounds in three weeks! God is good! :)
Then I was busy again today, and again didn't get on the treadmill. So, after having given this very grave situation some serious thought, I have decided that perhaps I pushed myself a little too quickly into an hour+ exercise routine 6x each week. I don't look forward to that time right now (obvi). So I have decided to back off and commit to 30 minutes each day of cardio. I am going to try to add in the weight machines 3x per week, but until I have a really strong HABIT of exercise, I am not going to beat myself up if I don't get to that.
I have another big weekend coming up, but I'm very comfortable and definitely ready. At this point I am so far into calorie counting, it's becoming second nature. In the three weeks since I started this program, the highest calorie count I've had for any single day was 1700 -- and that was only one day. The other days have been 1375 or less. And I am reeeaaaallly good at counting calories. I know the counts for everything and can break down or calculate as necessary. I love that about me. lol.
Well that's my spectacular status as I head into the weekend. I've had a tough couple of days emotionally, but I am grateful for any good things that come my way -- especially if it revolves around my current weight loss compulsion. Hee hee. Thanks for tuning in. I'll be back! ♥
P.S. to Peter Pan: THANK YOU! That really does help! Actually, I feel kind of motivated. Maybe I'll get on that thing yet tonight!
