Hot 100 Update:
1) Lose to 199 pounds: Well, see my post from earlier today. I haven't quite figured out what's going on. Earlier in the week I saw 207, my lowest yet. Today it was 209 again with no understandable reason. Sigh. Still trying. On the bright side, I did measure yesterday. I lost another .5 inches in my chest, 1inch in my waist, 1 inch in my right arm, 1/2 inch in my left. That's since end of September, so through my illness and surgery. I think it's a definite win that I continued to lose inches during all that. I have to believe that the scale will correct itself.
2) Be a size 12: I think I'm revising this. In light of my surgery and what not, I'm going to change this to being a size 14 in a "real" store, not Lane Bryant. I am in a 14 at LB comfortably, even with a little room. I feel like this is doable, especially since I'm back to working out.
3) Get my yellow belt: Supposed to test next Friday. Yeah.
4) Run a 5K: Well, I am supposed to walk/run one on Sunday assuming the weather isn't horrible. If it is really cold and rainy like they are saying it will be, I may have to do this on the treadmill and skip the race and try again another day. My asthma just been flared up too bad to risk a cold rainy run/walk outside. Especially this time of year which is my worst. BUT, if it doesn't happen as an official race, I know I have time to get one. I can handle cold, but not rain/humid cold. We'll see. Keep you posted.
So I'm still in Allan's challenge. I'm trying not to worry about the momentary gain. My body has just been weird since the surgery. I'm drinking lots of water. LOTS.
No really, Lots.
And yet, I keep drinking!
It's like it is so automatic, I could do it in my sleep.
Or is this all just a nightmare????
Nope. Just the SDDDY challenge. And all worth it. Even if the scale is being weird, I do feel pretty dang good with all the water. I know my skin is not dry and crusty the way it usually is this time of year. My lips are not chapped the way they always are this time of year. My sinuses are not all dry so I haven't had to sniff saline yet this year. And I am getting a lot of quiet meditation time at work and at home in the peaceful toilet closet. It's the only place people aren't asking me questions or needing me for something. So.....
Thank you, water!
Hope you all enjoy your Friday night! Looking forward to a super weekend! You? Have you had your H20 today? GET HYDRATED!
