Wow, I haven’t participated in 7QT for a long time!
I missed my Weight Watchers Wednesday post this week. My apologies. I will just use this QT to give you the low-down. First of all, last week, I WAS up as I expected. I was up 3 pounds. But, I kinda knew I would be. So, I worked hard MOST of the week to track everything and all that jazz. I say MOST of the week, because well…WEEKEND! I was not good about tracking the weekend.
The good news is that yesterday, I was indeed down 2.6 pounds so all was not lost. The topic of the meeting yesterday was Plateaus. Of course they discussed how hitting a plateau is probably due to relaxing a bit on what we are doing, not really because our body decided not to lose any weight for awhile. I have to agree with that as I have been lax the past few weeks, and hence, have not made more progress to hitting my goal. I recommitted yesterday to tracking everything and I hope to stick with that all week. I also will be drinking more water. See, I have started drinking the diet coke again. Blah. I just get so bored drinking ONLY water and I like diet coke. Oh well, we’ll get there, I guess.
So I hope to have a Weight Watchers Wednesday post up again next week to let you know how the rest of this week goes!
I started a daily journal a couple of weeks ago and my intent was to do a post about a “day-in-the-life” of moi. Well, yeah…I only got a couple days in. I am not sure why I think I need multiple days to bring a “day-in-the-life” post to you all, it’s not like I’m doing “week-in-the-life.”
And another from the same day in the evening:
7:30 p.m.: Arrive home after volleyball practice, throw leftovers into the microwave, provide adequate sympathy to Craig, who is nursing an injury he received at Crossfit, see we have 2 dozen eggs left hard-boiled in the fridge that need to be deviled. While eating, make a list of what I need to devil the eggs (didn’t have everything). By 7:45 I’m heading out to the grocery store to get stuff, I get back, help get kids to bed and then put the deviled eggs together. All while kinda/sorta paying attention to the Royals game on TV.
So, My life is crazy, y’all.
I am running a 5K tomorrow for our city’s Corporate Challenge. I’m really excited that I anticipate running it about 5 minutes faster than last year. I’m not going to win by any means, but I love seeing my improvement this year. I have several things coming up that will help me see that, by the way. There’s the Hospital Hill 10K June 6 where I am shooting for a sub-60 minute race. Then there is the mile race for Corporate Challenge, the swimming events for corporate challenge. A couple of triathlons this summer and a half marathon in September.
One of the great things about doing Crossfit is I can see improvement there all the time, too. I was just thinking. I’ve been consistent at Crossfit since November 1. Going at least 3 times and usually 4 times per week. Sometimes I even make it there 5 times in a week. The Burpees that I struggled through (and HATED!!!) in November and December, I can “kill it” when we do them now! I don’t LOVE them or anything, but I able to get them done in much shorter order now. And pull-ups…I think it’s time I always used the blue band instead of the green (but sometimes I feel chicken, especially when there are a lot of pullups in the WOD). I can lift 110# over my head. There’s just so much I can do now! I love being strong.
