Weigh In 9/5/11 - Primal Fail

So it's Tuesday but I did weigh in yesterday like I was supposed to.  163.5.  That -2 lbs from last week and a new all time low.  Wahoo!  Feels like I'm getting back on track.  At least it did until this weekend hit.  Primal...hmmm...what is that again? This weekend has been an epic fail on the primal front.  But I'm back at it.  I've logged my tracker accordingly...adding those annoying red dots all through the weekend.  Time to suck it up and get 'er done!

You may have also noticed that the Mud Run ticker is gone.  I will not be doing the Mud Run at the end of the month.  I know...seeing a lot of failures here.  The point of the Mud Run was to give me something to motivate me getting to the gym.  It didn't work.  I haven't trained and, honestly, I don't see me training in the next two weeks for it either.  So there it is.  I'm starting to see an old pattern resurfacing here...me not finishing things.  That is no bueno.  I think it's just time to simplify.  Get through the primal challenge and try to get 30 minutes of activity a day.  That is the goal.  And for this month, it will have to be good enough.

This weekend was good.  Had a great time at girls' night out.  Drank WAY too much and was definitely feeling it Sunday morning but we survived.  Visited my dad in the hospital on Monday.  He has his second surgery on Wednesday...hopefully the skin graft will take and he'll only have to stay another week.  We shall see.

NSV:  I went shoe shopping on Saturday.  I needed a new pair of brown shoes and another pair of black shoes for work.  So I'm looking down the shelves and I spy a row of boots.  I haven't worn boots since I was 18 years old.  I never even used to try them on because I have a wide foot anyway and they never carry them in a wide in the store and I knew I wouldn't be able to get them up over my fat calf anyway.  Well...just for giggles, I tried on a pair of boots...just a straight size 6 1/2...no wide size, no extended calf...  They fit!  So did the 4 other pairs I tried and some were even too BIG in the leg!  Hot darn!  I did a little happy dance in the middle of the shoe store and they looked at me like I was nuts but I didn't care.  I even snapped a quick pic for y'all!
Please excuse the glare
Another NSV:  I went shopping for a new top.  Didn't buy one but the one I liked the best was a JUNIORS' Size Large!!!  That's right.  I said JUNIOR.

Shout out to new follower.  Please go see Mari at A Tale of a Band Called Beyonce.  She's working on getting banded and could use the support.

So it's the start of another workweek...albeit a short one.  I hope it goes by quickly.  Here's your Monday DEMotivator...on Tuesday...
