So I'm a Saturday weigher. Saturday is my official weigh-in day. It falls on Saturday in hopes of avoiding an end of the week binge. Makes sense, right?
So when I weighed myself on Saturday, I got ticked. I mean, in my head, I was livid. WTH? I did NOT gain 9 lbs in a few days! Swear-curse-swear-naughtywords
And then I took a breath, and looked at the display again.
No, my weight/the number on the scale had not shot up to 229 in a few days time, which is what my mind's eye initially saw. I'd actually gone from 220.8 down to 219.6. I'm so unfamiliar with a 1 trailing that 2, I was confused. Confounded. Confuzzled even!
I didn't record it though. I didn't trust it completely. I can't explain WHY I didn't trust it, other than when I record good numbers like that right off the bat, I turn around and gain back X lbs again. Not this time, skippy!
So I left my ticker alone - it's enough that I have that number in my head as do-able now.
Last night, as I sat up past my normal (8:30-9:00) bedtime until 11:00 p.m. (with my normal 4:30 a.m. wake-up time looming), watching The Bachelorette The Men Tell All (????? Really? What about that show had any bearing on my life? Sigh....) I decided I needed a snack.
Four slices of turkey breast lunchmeat, four slices of Provolone, two slices of Cheddar, and one String cheese later.....
THAT is why I don't record the initial good number. I'll lose my ever-lovin' mind and shovel unneeded calories and fat down my gob.
Welcome to August! This is NOT how we'll be spending our time this month!
I earned 2,063 fitness minutes in July.
I released 2 lbs.
I resumed running.
In August, we'll be...
Aiming for 2,100 fitness minutes.
Releasing at least 2 more lbs.
Improving my running.
Cutting back on binges and ate night mind-numbing TV viewing...
Altho that Mickey is HAWT! OhMy!
August 6th, I'm meeting up with several SparkPeople members at Race for the Homeless in Vancouver to run a 5K!
August 13th, I'm running the Pineapple Classic 5K with 4My2Kidz to raise money to fight Leukemia.
August 26th, I'm volunteering for our very own Sparkin' Hood to Coast Relay team by (wo)manning Exchange 14 for a few hours.
August 27th, I have to decide between doing an 11 mi run with the Tribe or going to Seaside to see our HTC'ers cross the finish!
Yea, I've got things to do, pounds to release, healthy food to enjoy in moderation, and big bootay to kick! My own, of course.
