HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPO!
Remember that game? They still make it. My girls got it for Christmas and they absolutely love it! Anyway, back to the point. I am freaking hungry! I am starving, withering away to practically nothing. OK. That may have been an exaggeration but I am stomach growling, shaky hands hungry. I still feel some restriction somewhat in that I can't eat as much in one sitting, but I'm hungry only an hour or two later. At least that's how it's been today. I know this is the beginning of bandster hell and I've been expecting it but I thought it'd be more gradual. I suppose seeing how it's been 5 weeks, that IS gradual. But I've gone from fine yesterday to ready to knock over a Wendy's and demand 8 spicy chicken combos. Go figure. So I'm muddling through. I did face the music on Tuesday and I didn't gain any weight on my trip. I weighed again today (because I'm a scale whore and that's how scale whores roll) and I've lost another pound. 18 lbs total so far. Can't awhine about that. I went to step class last night. It was freakin' hard! But I did it with several modifications during the hour long class but I did it. I didn't just stop or give up so that's good. It combines step with weights so my arms a touch sore but in a good way. The one thing I just can't seem to do is stand on one foot and bend my knee while doing bicep curls. Am I the only one who just can't balance like that??? Jeezaloo! Even though I thought I was going to die midthrough, I lived to tell you about it today. There was one girl in the class who is really good with all the moves and stuff. She came up to me at the end and said the modifications I was doing were really good and that it gets easier the more you do it. Thought that was really nice of her.
That's about it for me. Not incredibly exciting here this week. It's not like I'm going to...oh...I don't know...CHICAGO...or anything. Hope you ladies have a wonderful time! Can't wait to see the pictures!
