So this month has not been ideal. First the car, then the job, then I got a car, thought the job was in my grasp, but that is not so. They started interviewing other people and said if I can speed up/change the way I do one set of tasks (which is 40% of the job) that I might have a shot. Lord Almighty! I was just ready to be in or be out. I have had 3 days off all year (that’s days within the work week). Those were the 3 days that they hired someone else and he quit after 2! I was not interested in the job at that time. And my aunt is my boss at the temp agency, so she freely let me have it for at least a half an hour yesterday.
Basically, I am doing all I can to save my sanity and my job so blogging isn’t at the top of the list. Whew. Keep on keepin' on!
I have been doing well with eating, although the Fast Food Monster tried to ensare me for about 2 weeks. That was awful. Last Monday, after Pilates, I went to CVS which is across the street from a fast food place and the smell, the greasy nasty smell, smelled sooooo good. I had to sit in the car and talk to myself OUT LOUD and remind myself that fast food was the opposite of what I needed! I had mostly vegetarian food for lunches and such last week. I am having food burnout at a rapid rate! I can only eat something a couple of times before I am tired of it. Lame! Smoothies have been saving me too. One day last week I called SwimSis to see if she had anything planned for dinner that night. She did. Those were the only words I needed to hear to steer myself past the 9837432 fast food places on my way home. She didn’t end up cooking until later in the evening, but I filled my belly up with a fruit smoothie and was good to go.
On the exercise front, I have pretty much just been doing Pilates and Swimming. That sounds like a perfect world to me! I swam last Monday, Friday, and this morning. I didn’t want to go this morning, but I knew that the outdoor pool was only open for one more week. Do or die! I swam in the lane that is next to the deep end and it was creepy. And then leaves kept touching my legs. It made me swim faster when that happened! J Not much can top doing backstroke and looking up at the stars. I love it and am sorry I only found out about this when summer is almost over! We'll see if this morning workout thing keeps up!
And finally, weight as of last Saturday: 256.6!
I have only stepped on the scale twice this month. A week ago Saturday I saw 258.6, so 2lbs in a week is awesome! Thus far in my journey, I have been losing about 5lbs a month. This Saturday will be 6 months after I started my blog!, so it looks like this:
Starting weight 3/1/12: 280
Current weight: 256.6
6 months = 26 weeks
Roughly 1 lb a week lost = Super happy Em!
