Monday weigh in was not a big surprise, still at 160.  So it goes.  And today went as planned, I did my morning cardio, then my orientation consisted of eight hours of customer service seminars, interrupted by a few short breaks and a catered lunch from an italian eatery.  If I were being really good, I would have just stuck to the chicken breast salad, but I had some lasagne, a small piece of garlic bread, and a chocolate chocolate-chip cookie to boot.  To be honest, by the time lunch was served, it had been 6 hours since my last meal, and I let my blood sugar lull talk me into eating more fat and carbs than I normally would have.  Now that I know I will get a few short breaks throughout the day, I will bring my jar of peanuts along so I can have a snack during those breaks.  Tomorrow, I will make the healthiest choices I can in the situation.  They said it would be "fancier" food since our supervisors would be joining us for lunch.  We'll see. 
My latest issue of Oxygen Magazine has a great Beach Body Boot Camp workout, designed both circuit and interval style, with a plyo move, so I think I will start that new workout this week.  It is said that boot camp-type training is good for getting you past a plateau, so I will give it a try.  I will also be tightening up my diet this week, which will be easier after Wednesday, when I will no longer be in orientation for full days, having lunch catered in. 
I didn't make my April goal of getting down into the 150's, but I know it is possible.  With only 89 days left until the close of the contest, I am fairly certain I won't be at my goal weight by then, but I know I will be looking and feeling much better than when I started this journey.  Some days I get so caught up in the day-to-day operations, that I forget what I've accomplished.  Then I catch my image in a mirror or window and I am simultaneously surprised and proud of how far I've come.  And so very gratful that I had the time, courage, focus and drive to do it.  It could be the cookie talking, but I truly feel blessed!  Happy Monday to my loyal, fantastic readers!


  1. You HAVE "done" WELL...&, I know that contest...or no, you are not FINISHED! *It's a "life-style" CHOICE, "ever"...ONGOING. I'm PROUD, to call you my "friend!" 0;) <3
