Friday, oh how you tease me..
Friday, April 30, 2010
Fridays are nice, except when I have drill all weekend long.. Grr.. And I have two projects to finish up this weekend. Not looking forward to it.
My scale said 131.8 again yesterday. That is back to where I was 2 weeks ago.. It sucks, but I can't complain because after my body fat comp with Gwen earlier this week, I understand better how much muscle I actually am gaining. That and I have been weighing myself at different times of day and not really sticking to any normal system with it. From now on, I am going to weigh first thing in the morning on Thursdays, not in the afternoon or evening. Or whenever. Just so I have some regularity. I love the way that I am feeling about my body, and how muscular I am feeling. I just want to use the scale more as a monitor to make sure I am doing the right things as a whole. As long as it is moving in the right direction I am ok. :)
I did want to be 120 before my 23rd birthday (June 29th), but now I could really care less if I hit that date or not. I am going to strive to lose 1 pound per week in May, but I knew the second half of my weight loss would be harder than the first, so if it is slower I will forgive myself.
I really love the positive mind set I have had this year. Even when I mess up, I just bounce back and keep my head in the game. I haven't craved any gross food, only booze.. Which isn't really better, but I used to drink booze and THEN crave gross food. :)
I want to stop smoking. At the beginning of the year I got down to about 1 cigarette per week, but now I am back to about 3 a day (never really smoked more than that). I make excuses for myself like "you are doing so many things for your health, you can allow yourself this one thing..." but this one thing is the WORST! And I support cancer research, and my grandmother died of cancer last year.. So, I really need to kick this thing in the butt for good. Maybe that should be my goal to reach by my birthday. Completely lose my need for cigarettes regardless whether I am drinking or sober. Something to keep in mind.
Happy Friday to everyone who actually gets to enjoy it! :)
