The week started out challenging. Last Wednesday, I made an impromptu 3 hour trip to my company’s main office because there was a situation that needed my attention. I drove back the same day… that meant 6 hours in the car with no plan for food while traveling and no time to go to the gym. I didn’t get a 30 minute walk in. If I could do it again, I’d force myself to take a 1/2 hour lunch and go for the walk. I would have felt better.
In other news, my fitbit charger broke last night. I’m trying to decide whether to replace the charger on my original flex or switch to a newer fitbit.
I am getting so close to my 70 lb goal. My nails are absolutely ragged and I can’t wait for my 70 lb reward for myself (a mani/pedi)
Weight lost/gained this week: 2.0 lbs Total lost since highest weight: 67.6 lbs Nonscale victories: Nothing major, but I will give myself credit for doing some strength training and for (mostly) sticking to my daily goals Challenges: an impromptu trip to my company’s main office with no plan and no way to exercise, a very stressful day at work on Wednesday (Wednesday’s dinner was no pretty) Goals for next Week: complete some exercise every day, even if it’s just a 30 minute walk, average 10,000 steps per day.
