Well, yesterday was a bit better than Saturday, thank goodness! Special k for breakfast, lean grilled steak, brown rice, salad, and strawberries for lunch. Dinner was a bit of Lloyds bbq chicken (surprisingly low-cal and good!) on light toast with a salad and then strawberry shortcake for dessert. No worries though, it was angel food cake (just a bit) with the spray whipped cream. Yummy and low cal!!

The bad news: no workout. I was NOT feeling it at all...the pms is still kicking my butt. Luckily, by all indications today should be the worst of it and I'll be feeling myself again by tomorrow. I hope.

Anyway, I refuse to weigh-in today. I'm going to try and hold off until Wednesday morning for my mid-week unofficial weigh-in. I'm sure I'm up a bit after the weekend of reckless eating, and I'd rather not get too discouraged just yet!

I'm actually making it my goal this week to hit 148 solid. That would be a loss of less than a pound, but after the weekend, I think it's a reasonable goal. Oh, and I adjusted my ultimate goal weight from 130 to 125. My reasoning is that being half way to 130 isn't really showing much difference on my frame, so I think 125 would be a better stopping point. Also, I'd have a 5 pound window to move around in, as I know I usually bounce back and forth a couple of pounds here and there!


  1. Good job hopping right back on the wagon, Miss! Anyone would have had trouble resisting temptation at a holiday family dinner (or two). And Kewpie, come on, I think it's a sin to NOT indulge there, right?

    It sounds like you've got a reasonable goal and good plan in place for this week. Don't sneak a weigh-in ahead of schedule!

  2. I'm trying, girl. It is so much easier to avoid the scale when you KNOW there's a gain!! :)

  3. You can do it girl. I get you with the PMS. I feel the same way right now. I really am not motivated to workout so far this week. I did it yesterday but fought it the whole time. :)

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one, but I'm sorry you deal with it too, Summer! PMS is so much harder when you can't just lay around and eat chocolate! :-)

  5. missy,

    Are you really from Toledo??? And great job on your weight loss. YOu are doing great!! You need to come to my blog on Fridays. I have a Fitness Friday feature. It's a lot of fun.


  6. Just remember not only are you releasing weight, your making this a life style change.

    We can eat whatever we want but we need to watch our portions, eat when we're hungry and move our bodies.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Well said, Sheryl. I heartily agree!

    Yes, I am actually sitting in Toledo as we speak! :)

    I am trying to get that mindset of eating what I want, but I struggle sometimes! I do eat pizza still, just smaller portions, so I guess I've 'got' it a little! :)
