I’ve been: In Maine. In Massachusetts. Trying on dresses. Buying dresses…and shoes and earrings. Staying up till 4 am. Waking up at 8 am. Reading for days at a time. Planning bachelorette parties. And bridal showers. Baking cupcakes for said shower. Sweating. Sitting in front of the AC with no pants on. Basically I’ve been running around crazyyyyyy. I haven’t...
It's Been So Hot
and I’ve been so busy…that I haven’t been making exercise a priority. I left for Maine last Thursday at 247 and this morning I was 243.7. I want to keep working to get into the 230’s…I’ve been stuck in the 240’s FOREVER. I really want to get back to running but it’s seriously been so hot outside and I haven’t been around to hit up the gym...
Double - no, TRIPLE SPANX!!!– Liz Lemon
busy tutoring watching netflix reading eating fruits helping plan a wedding Yesterday I kind of fell off the wagon…not in an “eat everything in the world” kind of way but in a “coffee frappe for dinner is a great idea” kind of way. So ice cream for dinner, Balance Bar for breakfast today…yikes! I did have a salad for lunch so that makes it all better...
I have friends coming into town the first week of August. Originally, they were coming from Michigan and NY to Boston. But the plan is now NY first then Boston. While this changes my plans a bit I’m okay with having fewer days in town…less pressure to entertain. But…I’m super anxious about going to NYC. Like almost anxious enough to cancel and say “hey I’ll...
I’ve been busy. So busy. Picking people up at airports. Sleeping through 4th of July parades. Drinking sangria with my feet in a kiddie pool. Tutoring. Catching up with a friend over dinner. And speaking of that dinner. I went with a turkey burger with a side salad. Slowly getting back on track. Last 4 days: 248.3 247.7 247.3 246.1 <——Today!
I drank lots of water today. But I didn’t get my well balanced home cooked meal in…and I’m okay with that. On the 3rd of July my hometown has a concert/town get-together on the common. There are vendors galore for you to munch and nom on while you listen to The Stars and Stripes Forever. I didn’t eat dinner before I went because I was going to eat fair food. I wanted...
Today my neck turns side to side. I still can’t tilt my chin down without somehow simultaneously pulling the muscle in my lower left back. How are they connected? I need a “foot bone’s connected to the leg bone” song for major muscle groups!
Thank you to everyone for the kind words and encouragement. I am going to try to readopt healthy habits slowly and one by one. Today I drank lots of water. Tomorrow I’m committing to making a healthy dinner…with veggies and everything! On an unrelated note: I think back pain is contagious. First Claire then Lindsay…now me. I don’t know how or when but oh my I can barely...
1. 239. 2. Drink all the water. 3. Commit to working out at least 20 times. New month. Fresh start.
I’m having a rough time… [[MORE]] The absence of a schedule (I’m a teacher on summer break) is proving to be my demise. Last summer I got started on this whole weight loss thing and now I’m questioning how I ever did it. To compound things, I am staying at my parents house. I am at the mercy of my dog’s haywire schedule and I haven’t cooked anything or...
