This Week's Loss: N/A ... I messed up my weigh-in routine this morning. I hopped into the shower before I weighed and I never consider what I weigh after I get ready in the morning to be accurate because my hair is always fixed curly on Tuesdays. When I fix my hair curly, it is always still a little damp until later in the day. Damp=Water and Water=Higher Weight.
Total Loss: 70 pounds
Starting Weight: 239 pounds
Current Weight: 169 pounds
Pounds to goal weight: 19 pounds
What I craved this week: Sugar. I know it has to do with my body having withdrawals from Cokes. It also didn't help that I bought three packages of Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs.
What I noticed was different about my body: Getting rest is important for my body whether I am huge or small. After my long run on Sunday, I felt more sore than usual. I didn't get my nap almost immediately and it made a huge difference. I finally got a chance to lay down early Sunday evening and my body felt so much better. At the same time, I really liked being on the go that day. So it is a balancing act that I will need to figure out.
Workouts I did this week: Three runs and two days of Shred. I was so disappointed that I fell off the Shred train. Watching Friday Night Lights was funner. Thankfully, we finished watching that on Sunday night. It is also a good thing because I have major projects due within the next few weeks. The biggest bear is due this Friday, so if I am scarce around here, that's why.
Personal Goal for this week:
- I switched my point break down to where I use my activity points first and then my flex points. My goal this week is the ultimate: to use neither.
- Run three times (including an 8 mile run!)
- Do the Shred 5 times. I have decided that the cross-training is effective, but I need to give my body a break somewhat especially on my long run day. On my shortest run day, I will do the Shred because I like doing each level for ten days. Plus with finals, I feel like this is manageable time-wise. After finals, I plan to go back to doing it every day of the week whether I run 10 miles or not.
A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” - John 20:26-29
What I’m looking forward to: This Friday at 9am. No joke, I can't wait for this beast of a project to be gone. I still have a lot of work ahead of me after this project, but it is manageable from there on out until finals are over. It also helps that I like the projects I'm working on after Friday. I also am looking forward to my hair appointment on Friday.
Frame of Mind: I have a to-do list that I draft every morning and it keeps me going. I also have less exposure to The Twitter and Insta' during finals time. And you know what? My mind is somewhat clearer about the world around me and my life decisions. There is something to be said for this and I am still trying to figure out what that means.
