Juuuuust kidding. I just thought that maybe if you saw that in your blog feed you would click on it out of sheer jealousy and well disguised longing.
I actually weighed in on Monday at 187.4.
Here it is. Let me lay it out on the line for you. The other night Heather really hit the nail on the head. I was stretched out on the couch, by head on her lap, and I was talking about how I want a weight loss drug equivalent to speed (please note that I have never DONE speed...but anything that would amp me up and having me running around like a tightly wound cymbal clanging monkey AND be legal...does sound tempting). Anyways, I said "I want a weight loss drug. I want to lose weight". And as she lovingly looked down at me, stroking my hair she says...
"No you don't"
and returns to watching The Voice.
Well, i DO want to lose weight, I just want to lose weight AND eat everything I want. I mean really...is that asking too much?
I have been eating preeeeettttty much everything and anything I want these last few
But I guess I need to start and try to be more consistent in my choosing better choices. If my lowest was 163 (which was only for a day at the end of my two week Atkins stint), and I maintained around 167 for awhile, then I am up somewhere around 15 pounds from my lowest. And with the Tough Mudder in May and the Pensacola Double Bridge (9miles) in February...I guess it's time to start focusing on my competition weight. The clothes I wore at 167 still "fit"...if you define fitting as zipping or closing. But as we all know...just because it fits...dont mean we should be wearing it. But that is a good judge for me, or a good goal I guess...bc I have some cute clothes ya know? And I would like to wear them again comfortably.
Do you know what I have been really terrible at? I mean, besides eating healthy? Drinking water. Bad bad bad. This week I have stopped drinking regular soda AND beer and wine.
Two things to note. I had to stop drinking because I started to really like it. I mean, I wasn't drinking mouth wash but I did enjoy coming home and having a couple of Wild Blue beers...getting a happy little buzz. So...let's just put a stop to that for awhile shall we? And I had just discovered Red Moscato!
I mean let's face it. I am kinda an all-or-nothing kind of gal. I either do really good...or I do really bad. I am not so good at balance.
But I have also been getting really bad headaches lately. Sometimes twice a day, usually right behind both of my ears. I had thought once or eight times that maybe I needed to drink water and that I was dehydrated. But I hushed those thoughts with nachos.
But I have been drinking water this week and low and behold, no headaches. So we will see if that keeps up.
We have been running. On Saturdays...or one day on the weekend...I run with Heather. Which means she jogs and doesn't break a sweat and can hold a conversation with me like she was strolling through the mall, and I meanwhile am huffing, puffing, dragging a leg...praying for it to end. Last weekend we did close to 5 miles.
Tomorrow if finally Friday friends.
Until then lovies....
