Still Here

I haven't been blogging much during the week, but I assure you I'm still here and chugging along.  I finally got the scale down under 160, which feels like a huge accomplishment, so I am going to keep things nice and clean so I don't have to continue visiting that number on the scale.  I am holding steady at 158 for two days in a row, so I am assuming I should be able to stay under 160.  Finally. 
I have been good all week.  Monday I did boot camp, and it was a little easier than last time, but I only did 2 intervals of the plyo squat/jump move because it was too challenging, and being that I was doing it before breakfast and before work, I needed to save some energy for the day.  I was prepared to walk on my lunch break, and I did.  I had to have blood drawn and make a few phone calls, but I still had time to eat and get in an intense 20 minute walk.  Now that's multi-tasking!  Tuesday morning I did interval cardio at home.  This morning, I was feeling very tired/low energy so I decided to rest.  As I am feeling a little drained today, I will not walk on my lunch break, and it is probably not going to be an option for me anymore, until we hire another person.  Anyway, today I have to work alone for five hours, and I am not very comfortable with the computer program we use yet, so it will be interesting.  But as I have discovered about myself all too often, I tend to worry more than what the situation calls for, so I am going to just relax and take it as it comes.  Sometimes being thrown into the fire is the best way to prove to yourself you've got what it takes, you just have to believe in yourself.
I can't believe May is nearly half done, I don't think I am going to make it for this month's 5k run, I think realistically, I may be able to do the July run, which is at the end of the month.  That is going to mean I need to get out there running a lot more than I am right now.  As most things in my life, it is a work in progress!  With my new loss, I am within 6 pounds of being at the 40 pound loss mark, I think I will have to celebrate with a clothes shopping spree when that happens!
Hope everyone's week is going good, we're almost there!

  1. Wow! You should post more pictures! I bet you look great! I'm 152 right now and I'm finally starting to reach a size I'm comfortable with. I would LOVE to be around 130, but that would take more work than I may be able or to willing to put in right now. Congrats on the weight loss!

  2. I haven't been blogging for a week either. And you are right about jumping into the fire, when you worry about something the anticipation is always worse that the actual event. When it happens you deal with it.
