Weigh In. 174.5. -2 from last week. Certainly can't complain about the steady losses, can I? I still feel guilty that I haven't made it to the gym but then again, apparently not guilty enough to pack my gym bag this morning and make it there tonight. I expect this to be a lot easier when we move closer to the gym but it's really just an excuse and I recognize that. My goal in the next two days (before Wednesday, my next normal workout day) is to find my next challenge.
You may also notice that I'm only 4 lbs away from my birthday goal. I set a goal to lose 18 lbs by my birthday (June 27th). I'm not changing this goal just because I should hit it with ease. I'm just going to be very proud of myself if I hit it early. LOL. IF I ever make it back to the gym, this shouldn't be a problem.
Easter was nice and mellow this year. It was just the four of us, no extended family came over. We didn't even have our traditional ham dinner. We had filet mignon instead with arancini (I'll provide a recipe for this at some point - delicious!), mashed potatoes and deviled eggs. Delightful! My band was super tight on Saturday...couldn't eat breakfast, lunch or even soup that I attempted at dinner. I think my morning PB aggravated everything and made the rest of the day a wash. By Sunday, I was able to eat 1/4 blueberry muffin, some chips with dip and a few bites of everything at dinner. I must learn to take it easier after PB episodes. I think that's why Saturday was so bad...I'm not babying my band enough after I struggle. Anyway, Easter pictures should be posted sometime this week.
So a good weekend altogether. It's like a calm before the storm. May is going to be super busy trying to find a place to rent, pack, move, my oldest finishing up the school year and then Hubby's surgery at the end. I'm hoping I don't allow the stress of all that and the extra effort needed to get all that done derail any weight loss efforts. Look for a post Wednesday about my new challenge. Until then, your Monday DEMotivator:
