Weekly update time
Starting Weight: 141lbs
Goal Weight: 130lbs
Last Week's Weight: 139lbs
Current Weight: 135lbs
The great swing up in weight has an explanation. Seriously. Because I didn't gain 3lbs and then lose 4lbs this past week.
My dearest Aunt Flo paid me a visit on Tuesday and whisked away all the lovely water I have been carrying around with me. In my body!
It occurred to me (and by "it occurred to me" I really mean "Scott pointed it out") that I am screwed. So. Very. Screwed. I have 7.5 weeks to lose the remaining weight. That's it. Five pounds in less than 2 months.
And if you consider that my birthday is a short 2 and a half weeks away, AND that I don't have any intention of spending my birthday hungry and sweaty, it actually means that I have 6.5 weeks to lose 5lbs.
Alright. So what does that mean for me?
1. Exercise. Every single freaking day.
2. No more cheating. For real this time.
3. Only 1 day a week of drinking. Oh, alcohol, I will miss you.
4. Water, water and more water.
It's not that I don't love to exercise. Honestly, I do. It makes me happy and it makes me feel strong. One of my favourite activities. What I dislike is feeling like I HAVE to.
Welcome to my bossy personality!
Tell me that I can do something if I want to?
Suuuuuure! Sounds great!!
Tell me that I HAVE to do something?
Oh hell no! You think YOU can make me do something?!?! Good luck with that one.
To add to this ridiculousness is that I am telling myself that I have to do something. Clearly I need to consult Scott on methods of Krista Manipulation!
Is it possible to meet my goal? Yes. Is it even probable? Yes. Is it going to be a rough 7.5 weeks? Goodness me, YES.
Here we go..... for reals this time!
Running Song of the Week
This isn't new. But it is one of my favourites. I never (ever!) skip it when it's soothing melody floats over my earbuds. Makes me happy. Enjoy!
