It's been a weird week. I've been bouncing around between 197-197.8. I haven't felt great, so I haven't eaten much at all, but continued with my treadmill and weight lifting according to schedule. Yesterday I was up to 199.6. What the......? Today, though I'm at 196.8 - totally weird. But I'll take it. Just a .2 loss. I'm assuming it's bloating. My ankles were swollen last night when we went to our ballroom dance lesson.
Next Tuesday, we're going to the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park for a couple nights to do some ghost hunting over Halloween. ;-) For those of you not familiar with this particular place, it's where Stephen King was inspired to write The Shining. The TV mini-series was filmed there because he was ticked off they didn't film the movie there. Lots of cool ghost stories about the place. Anyway, I'll weigh myself before we leave and count that.
My baby sister is doing a weight challenge at her children's school with other parents and teachers and the one who loses most by body weight percentage wins around $200. She's in the lead so far with SEVENTEEN pounds gone in 5 or 6 weeks. Her big advantage was giving up SODAS! (Diet sodas!) Way to go, Sarah! We're about 2 pounds apart right now, so she's thrown down the gauntlet!
My goals for this week:
1. get in bed by 10:30pm. I've been staying up way too late
2. walk on the treadmill AS SOON as I get up. I've been sitting around first, so by the time I have my breakfast shake, it's after noon.
