Weigh In

Hello Everyone,

It's that time again. Let's start:

Current Weight: 208.2 (that's a 2.2 lbs loss this week)

Work Out Achievement(s): So I'm dying to get to 199 lbs so I can buy my new swimsuit. This poor thing is getting ratty. My goggles also stopped working (the suction stopped working so now water seeps inside and irritates me to no end). I went out of my way today to buy new goggles and I'm already bookmarking the internet page of the swimsuit I want.

I'm actually relieved that I lost any weight at all this week since I've made the mistake of cutting my swimming short more than once last week. I've been trying to get so many things done that I have been doing less laps than I'm used to. That is NOT good. If I keep this up I'm going to get lazy and start skipping swimming all together. I need to make sure I don't do that.

This weekend was also not good for the diet. Ironically enough as I was writing my weight loss article, while at Borders, I ended up buying and eating food from their Starbucks. That food is sooo not good for me. I need to watch that too.

Other than that this weekend was AWESOME because I got to learn a new trade (deer capture and release) and also had a chance to do some good hiking while looking for a radio collar with Radio Telemetry. We ended up going up and down adjacent canyons looking for a possibly dead radio collared deer. We were about ready to give up when we found it... next to the road.. on flat ground. No deer in sight. Darn thing gave us the slip! LOL

Goal(s): So I doubt I'll get much of a chance to visit bookstores this week so I think the temptation to buy that Grande Double Chocolate Chip and that scone will subside and things will get better.

I have my new goggles now so I have no excuse not to go swimming. Our schedule should be more routine so I also don't have any excuse to skimp out on my swimming either.

I'm preparing a new article as I type this. I'm thinking what I'll do is try to write 2 articles a week. One specific on local functions (since I AM a LOCAL examiner) and one focused more on what it takes to lose weight and looking in to reasons we gain weight in the first place etc.

Today's article will be focused on local events. So if you're from the Inland Empire this should be relevant to you. LOL

Till we meet again!

congrats on the weight loss. I like your attitutde... less laps equals no swimming. Sounds like you're being proactive. How fun that you were able to get out and do some hiking. Too funny about the deer givin you the slip.

I'd love to read the article on why we gain weight.

yay again for the weight loss.
