As if...

What I was dealing with wasn't enough. Guess what? As of this afternoon, absolutely NO voice at all. I am hoping that by the time I wake up tomorrow that some of my voice will be back. It kinda makes it hard to work without a voice. ;-) No fever - so must be viral. Bottom line - I need to quit whining and woman up. As I said in my last post, no weigh in, but have been doing some workouts at the gym this week - just not at my normal intensity. Bad storms (thunder, golf ball sized hail, and tornado threat) is headed my way shortly. This is normally spring type weather, but the weather has seriously been crazy here in Texas.

For those of you that are in Australia (and happen to stop by my blog now and then), I hope you and your families are safe. I knew there were fires going on from reading the news online, but recently there has been a lot of coverage on the news here in the US. A horrible, horrible situation.

Mel - Thanks for the good wishes on my last post. I appreciate it. BTW - I LOVE the new outfit. Take a look at the pictures again objectively--meaning as if they are someone else you are looking at--- and you can see how much the outfit really just doesn't fit (in a good way - way too big!). You look fabulous in the new one!

That's all I can say. Between my cold and my allergies - which are totally outta control - I have done a whole lotta nothing. I am not weighing in. I'm not doing much of anything. Hoping the bit of rain today will help with my allergies because my medicine sure isn't.

Hope everyone else had a better week than me!

Weekly Weigh In

Well, turns out I did lose 1.5lbs of the Santa weight and trying not to beat myself up about the fact that it likely would have been more without the Taco Bell & Candy. Definitely progress though, so I will focus on that. I did take today off from the gym, but am considering a walk. I'll see how I feel and what time I get done working. Current weight: 141 lbs.

Super Bowl Sunday!

It's Super Bowl Sunday and I'm sitting here watching the pre-game show. I am totally exhausted. I want to finish up the sorting, but the worst room (office) is what is left. I finished the kitchen though. I might have to leave the office until next weekend, but plan to keep going in and out this afternoon in case I get a second wind.

I was planning that next weekend would be for cleaning since all the sorting was to be done. I'll have to see how it goes. There is definitely plenty of time to do the sorting as it's pretty much 10 hours of TV for the Super Bowl. Seriously, for those of you that don't realize the beating (I mean entertainment), it starts at noon. Kickoff is about 5ish and goes until essentially 10pm tonight.

So what's my problem? My problem is that I am having the desire to eat crap!!! I am going to do my best to refrain and remind myself that tomorrow is my weigh in day. I thought maybe if I threw it out here that it might help with the battle. Again, it's not hunger. It's emotional crap eating. The cool thing (trying to find something) is that I am so good at recognizing it BEFORE it starts. In the past, I would recognize it after the fact - so that's real progress! And I would have to say that I mostly am able to deal with it!

I worked out every day this week. Honestly - too much. It is contributing to the feeling of exhaustion and my legs are not sore, but just worn out. Hard to describe. Depending on how I feel in the morning, I might have to go ahead and take a day off to let my legs rest. Doing the elliptical is also an option. I jogged 54 miles this week. Too bad I ate all that crap on Saturday or I'd be more optimistic that I would see a huge loss tomorrow!! Here's the exercise stats:
  • Mon - 80 mins
  • Tues - 80 mins + 65 mins
  • Wed - 120 mins
  • Thurs - 70 mins
  • Fri - 65 mins
  • Sat - 65 mins
  • Sun - 62 mins
Note to self: TOMORROW is weigh in day. Deal with your emotions in another way rather than eating them! (And get the sorting done! ha)
