Weight: 211 lb (-2 lbs this week, -15 lbs total)–closer to 200 than to my starting weight!
15 pounds in just under 7 weeks! I’m right on track as far as “healthy” weight loss, although I still want to see more NOW. It’s not helping that I’m bloated, so even though I’ve finally started losing inches in my arms and legs, my hips and waist stayed the same this week. And my chest grew to epic proportions.
It’s been about 3 weeks since I last lifted. I know, I know. I was sick and now I have some personal stuff and I’m going to get back to it next week. I just hope I’m not losing a lot of muscle mass.
Still, 15 pounds, you guys! I was hoping to be able to get a FitBit as my 15 pound reward, but my car cost me $700 today, so I’ll be lucky if I can pay that off. Ever. Sheesh.
I’m currently in the phase of half marathon training where I’m hungry ALL THE TIME. Considering that I have 3 long races left this year (9/4, 10/16, and 12/3), I’m guessing I’m just going to be hungry for the rest of the year. And lately, my hunger makes me think about cheese nonstop. I love cheese so much it hurts when we are apart (and that’s why I didn’t last as a vegan).
Umm, really, that’s all I’ve got in me today. I’m drained, my stomach is killing me, and I’m at the end of the two week wait, which is making me particularly insane this month. I want to be excited about losing 15 pounds, but right now it doesn’t seem like enough. Actually, nothing I do feels like enough. I feel stagnant and in desperate need of a change, but I’m not sure what that would be. Kate made a great point about not always needing to be on, but honestly, the only time I don’t have to be on is at home with my husband.
Well, maybe cute pictures of my dogs can cheer me up?
Um, right, so on that note, what do you do to get out of a funk?
What’s your favorite kind of cheese? Favorite cheesy dish? I’ve been daydreaming about pizza forever (the problem is the pizza in this city, quite frankly, blows).
OH! I almost forgot, husband has an interview at a law firm tomorrow afternoon!!! We are arguing over what he should say his biggest weakness is. Any suggestions? Suggestions that aren’t cliche? And if you are the praying type, we could use it.
