Another week has passed and weigh-in is here!
I was telling Ben that despite sticking to the diet and not cheating except for cheese, I was surprised that I seem to be in a bit of a weight-loss stall. However, Ben reminded me that when I’m stressed (and these two weeks have been DUZZIES), I tend to not lose weight anyway. Good and valid point.
Weight lost: .8#
Total lost: 33#
So between the past two weeks, I’ve only dropped one pound. A little discouraging I’ll admit considering I was on such a roll but – it happens. I think the trick here is not to overthink things. I’ve seen it a lot, and am guilty as well – when a good diet starts to slow down, people begin questioning the process, think they need to quit and do something else, etc… The reality is that it IS working. If I were 14 weeks in and had lost only 10 pounds, then maybe it would be prudent to try another approach. Patience Ali!
We went out for dinner last night and I ordered a salad to supplement my veggie intake. I made sure to ask that the croutons be removed. I tend to just pick them off but there are crumbles that remain and I didn’t want that. The cheese, on the other hand, stayed where it was! Hee
Ben ordered a cup of their potato soup – wow did it smell amazing. Judging by how quickly Ben devoured it, I’m guessing it tasted as good as it looked!
Dinner was my 8oz burger patty with a side of broccoli replacing the french fries. I get a little annoyed when they charge me $2 for broccoli when I’m saving them the fries and the bun. Seems like they could go easy on me. 🙂
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it on the blog, but my neck pains have returned. When I saw my massage therapist a few weeks ago, she said my head was leaning too far forward and causing strain on my neck. So now I’ve got a few appts scheduled with the chiropractor for her to pop me back into place.
Honestly, I can’t even tell you how excited I am that it’s Friday. I know Monday is going to be another hellish day – but hopefully after that things will settle down. My list of errands for today is massive but I am so excited to be dashing around checking things off the list. It definitely beats being in the office for hours trying to tackle one thing and not making progress.
Oh and I am done with week 2 of classes now. Since we operate on 12 week semesters, that means I’m 1/6th of the way done. Not bad, not bad at all. and I’m still in one piece (mostly). 🙂
OK – make your weekend amazing everyone! I’m cheering Alex for his first FULL marathon on Sunday. Soo exciting!!
