Hello! *looks around, dusts away cobwebs and hears echoes* Is anyone still doing this challenge? Or am I an idiot swimming out here on my own? lol
Well, just in case, here is my scale shot for this week.
Down another 3 pounds. And below the big 350. That is a big bite out of my overall needed to be lost. And a big confidence booster. If I can get fifty off, I can get the next fifty off. I just have to keep it all in perspective, stay on track and not allow myself to get overwhelmed.
Don't sweat the petty stuff.
And don't pet the sweaty stuff. ;)
If this challenge has gone by the wayside, I can live with that. But I would like to know, so that I don't continue being an idiot, posting challenge updates that are no longer necessary. lol
One good thing has come from this challenge, whether it lives or not... I am no longer afraid to get on my scale each week. That was a big hurdle for me to get over. It was my six foot triple oxer. And I have cleared it handily. :D
I have also overcome my fear of non meat burgers. Boca burgers are tasty. I grilled one on my Foreman grill for dinner, last night. Had it on a thin bagel with some light mayo, a little mustard, lettuce, tomato and onion. I also had a little 2% cheddar cheese. I have come to the conclusion that fat free cheese is nasty and I don't like it. Like mayo or sour cream or cream cheese, if I am going to eat these things, I am going to enjoy them, not choke them down. Which means that I choose the light, rather than the fat free versions. I just have to carefully watch my portions and accept the slightly higher calories that go with them. Something I am perfectly willing to do, for the yumminess.
My veggie burger last night was a direct response to an insane craving for a cheeseburger. After our walk, yesterday I had the biggest, craziest craving for a big, juicy, greasy, hot, glorious cheeseburger. I could see it, smell it, taste it in my brain. And I wanted it. I didn't want 800 to 1200 calories, tho. My veggie cheeseburger was tasty and all for only 365 calories. And it really calmed that wild want swirling within.
It is cool, cloudy, rainy and humid as hell, this morning. Yesterday we drove around for almost an hour waiting for the lightening to stop hitting and the downpour to lighten up so that we could walk. I don't mind rain, but lightening? No thank you. That shit can do some serious damage to your bod. I do not want to get struck.
Okay, so I am nattering.
