The Weigh In Week 85

226.2!!!! A loss of 1.4 pounds. Yeah Baby!

I went out to dinner last night with my extended family and had a Turkey burger and a side salad. At the time I was not all that enthusiastic about the choice but obviously it was the right decision.

I grab the wrong memory stick from the camera this morning, so photo's will have to wait.

Andrew is this weeks big winner with a Guess of 1.3! Hopefully you can keep those winning ways going during your Half Marathon this weekend Andrew.

Guess How Much I weigh Contest - Week 85

As of now I am even for the week. Still hanging at the same weight I was last week. As always it all depends on what happens today.

I had such high hopes for this week, and I have been so good... but maybe not good enough to over come some bad decisions I made over the weekend.

Step right up, step right up.
Guess how much I weigh and win a fabulous prize.

To Recap:
Every Thursday I give you my stats for the week and you guess what you think the scale will say on Friday morning. The winner is the first person who guesses my weight / weight loss for the week without going over or the person who is closest without going over. Go ahead and click on comments at the bottom of this post and leave your guess.

I will post the winner when I post my weight on Fri. morning. If we get ten or more guesses I will have a prize for the winner.

Let the guessing begin. Good Luck!

I challenged Bob Harper to a Cardio rematch last night....and while Bob still kicked my fanny, the score was much less of a blowout then our previous meeting.

More importantly, I can walk today without wincing in pain which is a great improvement over last Friday's day after side effects.

Time permitting, I'm going to continue with the cardio workouts a few days a week until I figure out if there is some benefit or not. I'm still keeping up with my running and strength training, hopefully adding cardio will help me take things up a notch.

The Suspense...Oh The Suspense

So Laura has yet to decide what my "punishment" food will be this week. I'm feeling a little bad that she's stressing a little about the whole thing. Sweet, lovable wife that she is, she's trying to come up with something that will be a positive experience for me, instead of trying to gross me out. Busy, overworked mother that she is, she doesn't have a lot of time to think about it. I'll let you know what she comes up with.

I'm having some deja vu this week and it worries me a little. This week is starting to look all most identical to last week. The names and locations may have changed but everything else feels the same.

Like last week I am starting out in a really good spot. I'm already down from last Friday's weigh-in. But the week is starting to book up and I'm a little worried about my ability to commit the week.

(time passes)

I'm a little less worried now. I just realized that all of last weeks distractions were unexpected, last minute things (being sick, a last minute all day meeting). Because I started the week so well and wasn't expecting these distractions, I was kind of lax at the beginning of the week.

This week I know what to expect and I am being super vigilant on the front end, to make up for the things I have coming up toward the end of the week.

Does any of that make any sense?

Whether it does or not, I'm feeling better about the week, so thanks for talking me through it.

You know, you make a mighty good therapist.
