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! :)

    Hey girl, oh I hear you! I'm excited for drill because I only see my boyfriend on the weekends (for the next month, finally moving in together June 1 so I'll have him every day!) but it's a double-edged sword because we have to get up early and work all day long. At least I get to have lunch with and see him!

    Weighing at the same time is definitely important! I have noticed a 5lb weight difference between am and pm on the same day (I was curious how different it was) not to mention weight of what you wear...jeans are heavy!

    My birthday is in June, too! June 10...I'll be doing training in Fargo, whoohoo lol.
