So after my astonishing and amazing feat last week of a 5lb loss I fell off the wagon this week. It's been 10 days since I have been to the gym and I have gained back 1.5 lbs. I am still eating well for the most part (p.s. Skinny Cow dippers are phenomenal!), but my activity level is at a zero. It was a really busy week, between my cousin-in-laws birthday trip we take every year, my mother's birthday weekend at my b-diddle's mom's house, work, and school the time that I had left at the end of the day I was waaaaaay to EXHAUSTED! I know, I know, you are supposed to schedule working out as part of your day, but really?
Having some financial difficulties this week. I go through phases of things in my life I obsess about. This week its how poor I am, HA!
I just wanted to write a quick update. Time for bed!
I know that the title is well a little vulgar but i don't care. You know why? Because I am celebrating!!! This may seem like a small feat to some, but I am celebrating none-the-less!!!! since the last time I posted, so.... 4 days ago, I have lost 5 L-B's! Thats right bitches! FIVE SMACKAROONIES!!! Count 'em, 1....2.....3.....4.....5 POUNDS, not oz, not kilograms, not even teardrops!!! FIVE WHOLE POUNDS! I'm excited, can you tell?!
I've decided that my last post was a little preemptive. I don't think I'm using that word right but lets go with it... I had been working on my list for 10 days, and I already wanted to change it? I'm lame. Someone remind me that I have an ENTIRE YEAR to complete my list. And while I can look at the list now and see that #2 (find a new job) seems extremely impossible at this moment, I have to at least try, because at the end of the day I do need to find a new job, and giving myself a year to do it is pretty generous.
Some other things that seem impossible would be #9 (see the grand canyon), I have always wanted to go, but I'm not sure my finances will allow it. #15 (get hair extensions) also seems a little hard because I'm not sure the logistics involved with extensions, especially with having "ethnic", or "Textured" hair, and if that would be considered a weave, because if it is, I'm not sure I want one. #5 (let my sister know how much i appreciate her), and #11 (change someone's life) are also toughies, but i will prevail.
I am well on my way to #1 (lose 50lbs), I lost 4 lbs (count 'em), 1...2...3...4! But the next week gain back 3 1/2lbs. But I will get there. Before this week I was just trying to watch what I ate, but the other day i signed my life away to a gym membership for the next 18 months, so I HAVE to go, otherwise I will just keep paying them for nothing. My goal is to get my butt to the gym 3 days a week, so we will see how it goes. Other than that I've been kind of slacking. I'm really focused on losing the weight though, so maybe once I get into a routine, and into the groove of it, I can focus a little more on everything else.
I may complete #14 next weekend, and #18 at the MN State Fair in a couple of weeks. I'm trying to find someone to Play a round of golf with me for #8, so I will let you know how it goes.
Hey if anyone is reading this and feels like sending some inspiration, advice, charity my way please do. (and by charity I mean you can help me with something on the list, teach guitar, or golf, own a motorcycle, or are an esthetician. HA!) You can stalk me at HDLUE@hotmail.com
Thanks! XO Hannah
P.S. Honestly I've been listening to EVERYTHING Demi Lovato (don't make fun) for about 2 weeks now and her song "Trainwreck" is getting me through everything. You should go BUY it! I live my life to music and this is def a song that would be on my soundtrack.
