A glance at my week

Still here and still (mostly) in the groove. Workouts were great on Monday and Tuesday, I was really pushing myself and feeling great, but then Wednesday I got knocked off track again. We had plans to go out of town for a few hours and I had totally scheduled a workout --- I promise! --- but we ended up going out of town two and a half hours earlier than planned due to my husbands crazy work schedule and everything got shifted. SO, no workout at all Wednesday AND we ate fast food TWICE that day since we were on the road so much. Oops. :)

Thursday I was SOOOO tired. I am not sure why but I just haven't been sleeping well lately. Also, we started waking up really early (for us, at least) this week because of my daughter's volleyball camp. Add those two things together and it equals Mama seriously dragging butt! I could NOT psych myself up to do a decent workout for the life of me, so I did a tiny little 30 minute walk and called it a day. Eating was good yesterday though, except for a not-so-small bowl of cereal in bed while I watched Big Brother! :)

Today isn't looking good, to be honest. I had Taco Bell for lunch, but it was only one chicken soft taco fresco style so it wasn't TOO bad. Now I have to straighten the house, go get groceries, and give the dog a bath today so it won't leave a ton of time for working out. The in-laws will be in town all weekend starting tonight, so I'm not really sure what kind of workout time I'll get in over the next few days. Playing it by ear, I guess.

I've decided that from here on out my goal will only be to lose only a pound each week. I'm less than ten pounds from my goal now and I think the slower I go at this point, the better my chances of maintenance will be. I'm still hoping to reach my goal by my daughter's birthday on September 30th....we'll see!


  1. You lost me at Taco Bell, mmmm.

    I may or may not work out today, but I'm on a cleaning frenzy and I do sweat and puff, so I figure it has to count for something. Doesn't it?

    I think washing a dog, depending on the dog, can burn lots of calories. lol

  2. Wow you're so close to your goal. Proud.
