Weigh to Go Wednesday: May Your Weigh Check-In

Don't worry.  I'm still alive.  I have not fallen off the wagon.  I haven't even been busy.... just decided to take a couple of days off from "cyber world" after the festivities of graduation.

I needed a couple of days off.  Away from computers, technology, and everything else that reminded me of school.  I just needed some time to myself.  Two days was long enough - and so I'm back...and with a vengeance.

Things haven't been perfect this week... I have made my daily goals - and I've stuck to them.  I haven't really done much exercise - but that all falls in to the whole "days off" thing.  I needed to relax.  Relaxing just frustrated me, so now I'm fully charged to get my summer started.... a summer of losing more weight and getting more fit.

I can't wait any longer to get to my weigh-in results... I'm so damn proud of myself.

Challenge Start Weight:  216lbs
Weight Last Week:  215.2lbs
Weight This Week:  211.2lbs

I'm down 4lbs this week!!  That's 2.2% weight loss in three weeks.  Hallelujah!! I'm still not down to my lowest weight of 210.8lbs... but I'm only 0.4lbs I'll take it.  Hopefully, but next week, I would of kicked through the 210lbs barrier....the barrier that I have been unable to break, thus far.

This week, the "Sisterhood Says" challenge is to look in the mirror every day and find one thing to compliment myself on.  I say - BRING IT ON!!  I've been gaining more and more confidence about this challenge comes at a perfect time.

Tomorrow, I'm going to start running again.  Relaxing was OK - but I wanted to run.  I want to be outside...and I needed to get the urge back again.  Now it's back in full force - and I can't wait to get back on the track.

My goals for this week are to start running again, drink more water, and find a new work-out to do at home.  I'm still working - I'm subbing now - so I'm going to be gone a few days a week...but there's no reason I can't be doing something while I'm at home and not able to get out to run.

Can you hear my spark? It's back.  I feel it racing through my veins.  I really think I needed to get graduation over with so that I could really put my mind back on focusing on me....and now it's happening.

OK, that's it for now.  I will be posting daily again... I've missed my blog - and you all - so much.  I'm so glad to be back!!

Till next time.  ;)

  6. Hearing the spark loud and clear. Do you know, yours was the first blog I read when I was starting mine and what I read of yours went a long way to helping me stick at it for the first couple of weeks when I found it tough to get going. Back on the road and here's to you waving goodbye to 210lbs.

  7. congrats! on the loss, but mostly on finding the spark again :)
