I will let you think about that one.
yeah....I texted that to Mr. P at about 4:45 this afternoon when he asked me if I wanted to meet him at Body Pump.
Worse yet...I totally meant it.
I bought a new shirt at OLD NAVY in the regular sizes (XL) that I wore to work today with a pair of brown pants and a necklace AND some mascara and lipgloss. I looked adorable if I do say so myself.. I didn't want to waste a cutey patootey day on just work, so I wanted Mr. P to take me out. But, I ended up working until nearly 7, and then decided to just come home because I have oh.so.much work to do this week. When I got home we decided to get the new grilled Kentucky Fried Chicken, and while the elder child fetched it, Mr. P and I went on a 3.2 mile run. So, in the end, I exercised after all, even though I was too cute. OH, and I had a corn on the cob, mashed potatoes (no gravy), two pieces of chicken and green beans for 12 points. Plus, it was YUMMY.
I weighed in this morning, and was down 1.4lbs, but still not into new fat territory. My healthy, healthy, healthy journey has gone flat. In 8 weeks I have lost .8lbs. My fat test score is still a high B, at 87.23%, and if you remember correctly I am aiming for a 62%. a ways to go.
I have hit a MENTAL plateau...I am doing great Monday - Wednesday, and then I fall apart over the latter part of the week. I am still getting some exercise, drinking water, and eating good fruits and veggies on the fall-apart days, BUT I am also eating candy, wings, fried pickles, and drinking beers. and. I am not journaling any of my choices, or even my workouts on those days.
I don't know why I can't get over the hump and stick with it all the days of the week, I did great for months, then have been just piddling around with my lifestyle changes. I am happy with the way my clothes are fitting and I feel so much better, but when is it going to TRULY sink in that this isn't good enough...I still have 100 lbs to lose, and at .1 pounds per week, I won't get to goal until August 7, 2028...a week past my 59th birthday! yikes. (Of course, Excel helped me with that date math.)
I hope the turn from too cute to work out, to getting in a 3 mile run and journaling is a BIG step on the right path back to heathly, healthy, healthy!
Were you too cute to exercise today?
