This will also be my 2nd update on the CHRISTMAS DRESS COUNTDOWN!!!
So the scale did move, 181.4. I can handle that, with a total of 3.8lbs for the two weeks. Not quite the 4 lbs it should be but I am 2 days early but I know that on the weekends I don’t have time to do anything and tomorrow I start my new next part time job. That means I have 1 fulltime, 3 part times so a busy bee I will be, on top of my usual schedule. Never boring here and a woman’s gotta make a living to keep her family happy, fed and taken care of.
Water is never a issue except when I’m running the trails. What does anyone do when they are running? Do you carry a water bottle, wear a camel bag, what? I hate things in my hands and fussing with a fanny pack seems funky. Ideas? Thoughts? Anything? When I fast walk the trail carrying water isn’t a problem and when I walk it’s 4-5 miles and I can’t go that long without but if I’m chewing gum I can run/jog 3 miles without but at the end I know I’m dehydrated. What do you do?
My book came and I am reading but boy is it out of my realm. Teaching my brain to be quiet. Teaching me I can be important. Teaching me to quiet down and shut up. HUMMMM!!! It’s interesting and I talked to Terri yesterday and she has the whole series so when I finish this one I can get the next from her.
Calories are good minus an extra protein shake on the days I work out for 3 hours, like Tuesday and Thursday this week. I also had 3 Rolo yesterday while making Mike’s lunch. I did figure them in and I’m still under the 1200 calories but the sugars are a bit higher because of those things.
Blogging, each week after you all post I try and get to each and every one of you and leave a comment. Most of the time I can, once in awhile blogger won’t let me but I have checked in to see how you’re doing. AWESOME is what most of you are doing, some need a bit of work but this isn’t a diet anyways, it’s a life style change and changes take time and practice and it’s a learning experience, you can do it. I have faith in every single one of you!!
Next Monday Allan is having new menus to go with our new eating habits and they are going to be so doable. LOVING IT!!! I know some of you aren’t a fan of Allan but I am. Oh he’s off the beaten path at times and those times I don’t agree there’s that little x in the corner to just close out and check on him later but most of the time he’s right and I have been following him for a year now and he has helped me not only lose some weight but learn to cook different things and eat different things, except Hummus, that stuff is gross!!
So there you have it, week two under my belt. It was a good week, the scale did move and that makes me happy. Next week is coming with a whole bunch of new and exciting challenges. Life isn’t easy but heck, if it was it would be so boring. Let’s kick this challenge in the butt and get into those outfits we so want too. I almost told Jim what I was doing this morning but changed my mind, I really want to surprise him.
Take care my friends and have an awesome weekend. It’s suppose to be 60-70* and sunny here. The perfect weather to get ready for winter. We are taking in the raft, bring the boat home and putting the camper away. It’s just the way it is up here and though I miss all of these things spring will be back and out it all will go (in 7 months or so). Blessings to you all!!!
