Total Loss: 31.5 pounds in 22 weeks

Thoughts: This will be as short as possible because I’m super annoyed right now. My legs are sore from the extra miles I’ve tried to add in…and my bladder hurts from the hundreds of ounces of water I drank all week…and I gained. A small gain, but still. I did yet another weekend of NO drinking and…gained. Instead of whining for paragraphs I’ll just say I guess the blame can be on my Pizza Hut Sunday during the WWE Royal Rumble show. But I had fun and enjoyed it, so what can ya do? I definitely tried hard and it’s getting to the points where Wednesday nights I have this feeling of dread about what the scale is going to say the next morning. Life goes on and the yo-yo that is my weight still hovers around the same point.

Perfect 10 Update–Week 5

Walk/Jog 100 miles (by the end of the challenge)–I walked twelve  (yay) miles this week for a total of 39 towards my goal of 100. It’s the halfway point and I’m not at 50 miles yet so I need to work on that. I did a little jogging but nothing great–and obviously not enough to make weight loss happen.

-Do strength training/toning exercises three times a week (via DVD’s and the Wii Biggest Loser game)–One time yet again. Fail.

-Complete 3 sections of my big writing project–I didn’t get any writing done. But, I read hundreds of pages of Under The Dome and did like 10 pages in my scrapbook. So my hobbies were definitely tended to this week.

-Lose ten pounds–Back on the wrong side of the line yet again, with a 0.3 gain.

-Set at least one goal for the day, no matter how small, and reach it, everyday. –Doing great on this still–success each day.

-Drink at least 80 ounces of water each day–Done each work day. Averaged around 120 ounces during work days and only about 40 on Sat/Sun.

Something unknown about myself: When I was about four years old, I was climbing on a gun cabinet (dumbass!) and it toppled over and cut me all over my body from head to toe. I had to be rushed to the ER and everything. I came thisclose to severing something major in my neck. I still have a big scar on my neck from the incident. Funniest thing–I called the doctor a “jackass” while I was being worked on (at age 4)…and ironically, I wasn’t the least bit overweight at that age.  Imagine how quickly that cabinet would lean over a few years later when I started to chunk up!

Alright yall–I’m aggrivated so I’m going to sign off now. We are about to have a big meeting about the future of our jobs. Yay. This weekend it’s the early Valentine’s Day celebration…I’m so excited. To avoid the crowds and jacked up prices of next weekend we are going to Tunica, MS to Paula Deen’s buffet to eat and do a little gambling. It’s the best food ever down there and I plan to make Paula Deen proud! Look out scale. If I gain weight on a week when I do mostly good, it scares me to think how bad I’d do on a week if I totally went wild. SCARY. I’m not going wild for the week, but for Saturday…no promises.
