I've been hiding out for the last week or so, busy with school and getting ready for my weekend away this past weekend so while I've been reading blogs on my blackberry I haven't posted in a whole week.
Ok so lets see whats been up......
I got my bodybugg last Tuesday and wore it for my first full day on Wednesday and I have to say I already love it though I did keep it off for my weekend in Maine as I spent all 3 days at the beach and knew I wasn't going to be getting too much activity or tracking food. I was excited to put it back on this morning though my activity was pretty low again today since I spent about 4 hours in the car.
I'm back to tracking and exercise tomorrow and based on the scale the damage from my mini-vacation doesn't look too bad. I weighed in Friday before I left at 175.2 though I accidently deleted the pic on my phone while trying to make room for more pics over the weekend, and when I weighed in when I got home today it was 175.6 - a .4 gain for a weekend of good food and drinks is totally worth it. I'm counting todays weigh-in as my one for the week which gives me a 1 lb loss for the week which is great considering.
I also had a pretty good NSV - I had bought a tankini on clearance at Target back in March or so and hadn't bothered to try it on because it was like $10 total for both pieces and when I got home and tried it on I was annoyed that I bought it because there was no way this suit was going to be worn any time in the near future the way it looked then.....but I wore it this weekend and while it still could have looked a little better, it looked pretty darn good the way it was.
I've decided to follow the lead of Whitney at Slimming Down for the Gown and Sarah at Operation Size 8 and cut out out the diet soda completely. I think I'm using it as a crutch to avoid drinking as much water as I should be and if I make the move to lay off of it totally it should help with my water intake and my overall weight loss. So thats my goal for the next few weeks, stop the soda and I really really want to get into the 160's!!!!
