I got better news last night at my weekly weigh-in. Down 3.2 pounds this week, for a total of 5.5. That’s a quarter of the way to my goal! If everything were linear I’d be done in 6 more weeks. Unfortunately, as we all know, things are not linear in this undertaking. But, I am very happy to see the big drop show up, I’ve never not had it happen in the first week, so this is really weird to me to see a delayed reaction. I know that the professionals at my program have seen it happen but for me…my body has always worked predictably before.
Anyway…happy to have it.
I rewarded myself with an hour of yoga/Pilates fusion this morning. My rewards are lame, I know. It did feel somewhat decadent to take a whole hour for myself, though.
Today’s challenge: Co-worker in from out of town who wants to meet up tonight at the local pub which has Happy Hour all day on Tuesdays (!). I don’t get to see this co-worker often, and I have some things I want to discuss away from the office, so I’m going, but I’m going to eat dinner first and make sure I’m good and full before I get there. I plan to order sparkling water, and not stay all night. This style of meetup has historically been an hours-long boozefest for us, but I can’t do that right now, it’s not in line with my goals. It feels somewhat selfish to say that sometimes, but it’s been a good long while since I cared what anybody else thought of me. Oh I’m selfish for taking care of my needs, am I? So be it. Get on board or get out the way.
