A Little Movement

Good morning, everyone.

I jumped on my scale, this morning and saw a small amount of movement. 3.4 pounds in two weeks. Not stellar... I only lost .6 pound, last week so that was 2.8 pounds this week. I am not impressed or happy about it. I am culpable and I need to pull my head out of my ass and do better.

I need to find my mojo. My mojo is off wandering around somewhere, sipping lattes at Starbucks, sniffing late season flowers, gazing at fluffy white clouds dancing across the sky, zig-zagging across ripe, golden fields chasing the last butterflies, diving into leaf piles on someones freshly raked lawn.

Stupid mojo.

I am sucking. I am aware of it. I am working on turning it around.

And I am thankful that I at least lost a few pounds and didn't plateau or gain.

*taking a breath* Not freaking out.

I have a goal. One that is in serious jeopardy thanks to my being a lazy, self indulgent slag. And that isn't going to fly. Time to pull myself up short and stop slipping, grazing, picking, snacking, popping a cheese puff here, a handful of Carolina BBQ chips there. Pop chips aren't bad, but two thirds of a bag of pop chips for lunch is. :P

And this shining on exercise thing I am doing... Not cool.

It is a sunny, chilly morning. And my hampers are full. Laundry day. Yay. Nothing like four loads of dirty, smelly clothes to make a girl feel special on a lovely Autumn day. :P

So, I suppose I should get my second cup of java, my oatmeal and then get to it.


  1. Erika, I'm all for putting an end to the unhealthy or unproductive tendencies, but seriously, 3.5 lbs in two weeks is NOT a bad thing! You're pretty harsh on yourself.

  2. I think I'll have some oatmeal this morning too!!! Sounds so heavenly. I know it wasn't meant to be cool- but your mojo sounded really cool. I mean, in a fluttering around kind of way. I liked the visual is what I'm trying to say. But I hope it gets back in line ASAP!!


  3. Wow! Take me to that world your mojo is living in... 3.5lbs in two weeks is a good thing - good job! Now go grab that damn mojo by the throat and bring it home where it belongs!

    Have a terrific day!

  4. Go find your mojo and do the things it's doing. Chase the butterflies and dance in fields, fall in leaves and rake them up, look at the clouds and enjoy your day. It beats sitting at home doing dirty laundry. And it sure as hell beats "normal" exercise!

  5. Your mojo and mine have run away together. I am doing it, but not at the pace I set for myself. This pace won't get me there very soon.I can do better. If you find your mojo, please send mine home, too.

  6. Dang, here lately I am lucky to lose a pound a week. Since I started working, my whole routine is off. I find time to exercise 4 to 5 times a week though.

  7. Mojo - or the lack thereof - pisses me off. Stupid effing mojo. Ugh. Hope you get yours back soon.

  8. I think that's a fantastic loss!! I'm jealous :)

  9. Whenever I see someone upset that they haven't lost enough weight over a week or two, my first thought is always 'damn, have you been watching Biggest Loser? Y'know, its not healthy to lose 20lbs a week unless you've lost a limb'. I know its tough, but accept the number and move on. Its going in the right direction, and 3.5lbs isn't anything to sniff at! If your weight loss stops completely, then yes, be worried. But for now I think you're doing brilliantly :)

  10. "And I am thankful that I at least lost a few pounds and didn't plateau or gain."

    That says it all the right there. You do indeed have something to be thankful for :) Keep it up and here's wishing you drag that naughty mojo back from Starbucks ;)
