**I somehow posted this as a new page last night.**
I had decided a few days ago to start weighing every morning until I leveled back out to pre-vacation/road trip/Thanksgiving weight. None of the weigh-ins were official, I just felt like I needed a little oomph to get back on track. Cliff was concerned that it would be demotivating, but I was determined to try it and see.
I am happy to report that I am back to 275 as of this morning. It took me just a little over a week to get rid of the 5.2 pounds I had gained back. I really think weighing in every morning was pretty helpful. It made me work out when I didn’t want to and it made me more conscious of my calorie intake today (I had a rest day today because my knee has been bothering me). I’m going to continue to weigh each morning, but continue to only use my weight on Tuesdays as my official weigh in for the week.
While Cliff was visiting his grandmother for her birthday I decided to go ahead and pack our lunch for tomorrow. Due to the weather we were only able to grab a few things from the store on our way home Friday and we’ve been snowed in ever since (for the most part). Lunch this week is going to require a bit of thought. I think I’ll make a pot of soup one night to take and also start getting rid of the ton of frozen meals that I have in the freezer. Since our microwave is on the fritz (again) I might as well use the advantage of having one at work. Hopefully I’ll be able to get to the store after my finals this week.
I did all of the laundry today and finished going through all of my clothes.
I have entirely too many t-shirts…
These are only the t-shirts that currently fit or are just a shade too small (I love looking at goal clothes every day!). My exercise clothes now have their own drawer in our room and I have moved all of my clothes that are now too big into the guest room. Some of the shirts hanging up still have tags on them…
The one t-shirt that I can’t wait to wear is my t-shirt from a place called DJ’s in Daytona Beach. We went there with my Mom and Dad while we were on vacation in Florida when Cliff and I got married. I bought it as a goal shirt to wear when I lost the 20 or so pounds I had gained back at the time.
I put it on for the first time this weekend and teared up. It’s a little snug for me, but I know Ashley would say, “You HAVE to start wearing clothes that fit you!” I’m trying, I’m trying!
I’ll finally be back on my routine 100% starting tomorrow (if the weather holds up). Work, gym, homework, sleep. Just four more days and I will have put this semester behind me. It’s been brutal.
I’m still hoping to reach my end of year goal which is 262, but it’s not looking good. That’s a 13 pound loss in just 23(ish) days. Not impossible, but not likely. If I really, really push myself at the gym for the rest of the month I might pull it off, but we’ll see.
