Down half a pound. This is REALLY starting to piss me off!!! I have over twenty five pounds left to lose!! Well, twenty five point five, but 'over twenty five' sounds more dramatic. And you know how I love drama. I wanted two pounds a week. When I saw that probably wasn't going to happen, I made peace with a pound a week, figuring by Daisy's first birthday, I would have done it. But half a pound?!?!?! That'll be ANOTHER year, meaning she'll be eighteen months!!! That's not fair!!! Those stupid bags of Halloween candy I ate last year should have had some sort of disclaimer on them. Warning: If you eat this bag, plus four more, it will take you eighteen months to lose the weight. And then, as Angela pointed out (thanks a lot loser) it's not like once I FINALLY reach goal, anything awesome and magical will happen. I'll still have to eat properly and exercise, or else I'll just pack on the pounds again.
And ladies? A world where I can't eat oreos and cold pizza for lunch isn't really a world I want to live in. You know?
All that being said, I didn't track more than three bites this week. I did drink a lot of water, and I guess I can thank that little fact for the barely-there loss I did experience. Wed and Thur were great, I worked out and tracked, even though I wasn't eating that well. Then I got sick, and just sort of laid around all weekend and Mon and Tues. Not a great way to lose I guess. But it's a new day, and a new week, and I'm going to track every single morsel that crosses my lips.
Ooh, want to see something? At first, I was too ashamed of my ultimate nerdiness to show this, but then I figured, hey, I'm not the one who invented it, so there is at LEAST one other person out there as nerdy as me. And if there's one, maybe there's a few more. And so I decided to share. This is a water checklist. Because I am OBSESSED with checklists. I make checklists for EVERYTHING. I just LOVE to check things off. Take out the trash. Empty the dishwasher. Shave legs. I'm addicted. That feeling you get, when you cross something off? I think it gets me high.
this link. I scaled it down in PSE and printed four to a page, so I could have an entire month on one sheet. But they're pretty little that way.
I have also downloaded the Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred. Which brings me to a question for any fit people out there. Usually, back in the day, when I would 'lift' I would be sore the next day. Like, unable to sit on the toilet without someone to help lower me down, unable to raise my arms to wash my hair, that sort of thing. But that rarely happens anymore!!! I 'lift' to the point of exhaustion, I literally CANNOT preform another rep, but after a few hours, I'm sort of fine. So, does that still count? Am I still toning my muscles? When all this fat finally melts away, will I unveil nice long, lean muscles? Because if not...I might be throwing in the towel. Fat people can be happy too.
