Weigh to Go Wednesday: What a Week!!

Spring In2 Action

My goodness what a week it has been...and it's only Wednesday!!

Today is a HUGE day for me....the day I've been waiting for since August.

Today is the day I FINALLY present my senior project to my peers, university liaisons, and school principal.  The day that has kept me away from my exercising, has completely messed with my schedule, stressed me out, and has kept me away from all of you.  Today is the day.

Am I nervous? A little.  I've worked very hard the past six months, and today I have exactly twelve minutes in which to explain six months of work.

I'm a talker.  I like to talk.  I'm worried I'll get up there and start talking - and before I know it, my time is up and I'm only on slide 5 of my 27 slide PowerPoint.

It also means that after today, I can have my life back.  The life of working out 7 days a week - and wanting to.  The life of having time to schedule my meal plans - and wanting to.  The life of being in control, working hard to lose weight, and being a good partner to my team mate - and wanting to.

Today is also weigh-in day. 

Last week wasn't great.  I gained 0.6lbs.  I was scared that this week would be even worse...but it's not, thankfully.  So, let's get to some results.

Challenge Start Weight:  214.6lbs
Weight Last Week:  215.2lbs
Weight This Week:  214lbs

I lost 1.2lbs - and I'm very happy with that.  Especially with how much stress I've been dealing with.

I guess my scale is finally taking a little pity on me.  The 5K I ran on Saturday might have helped a little, too.

I haven't gotten in any exercise this week - unless you count spending the day in Kindergarten on Monday.  I know that sounds funny - but I walk over 8,000 steps while I'm at work.  Kindergartners definitely keep you on your feet all day.

Yesterday was brutal.  For seven hours, I sat.  Just sat.  Getting up every couple of hours to stretch my legs.  I wanted to move - I hated being still.  Today I have to do it all over again - UGH!

I'm so ready to get back in to the gym AND get back outside and run....that's coming this weekend.  Oh yes it is!! The weather is supposed to be nice - which means I'm a running.

OK, time to get ready for the biggest day of my college career....until graduation, anyway.

Till next time. ;)
