Day 21: Three weeks, so far so good

Monday, February 25, 2013

So last week was hard, but it was good. I managed to eat out three times, but I logged all the food and made space for it in my day.
I also worked my butt off at the gym!
I weighed in today and took my measurements.
Here's where I stand from last Monday:

Weight loss: 2lbs!
Inches lost: 4"!

So a great week for week three!

This week I want to refocus and keep improving.
Here are my goals for this week:
-Get to the museum TWO TIMES!! (Once for a lecture and once for volunteering)
-Go to the YMCA 4x (Right now I'm thinking MT ThF)
-Eat a salad everyday
-Eat veggies with every meal
-Drink 8+glasses of water and/or tea daily
-take a multivitamin
-Start doing crunches (starting today)
-Try not to let TOM get to me!!

So it's basically the same goals as last week with a few tweaks. I haven't been doing crunches because like I said before it's a combination of not having time and not having a good place to do them. Last week, the one time I tried to do crunches I was already just too worn out to do them.

So I'm going to start going to the gym longer. If that means having to walk back because Ken needs to leave, fine. I'm doing this for me so it needs to be on my schedule and my terms. Everybody has a different exercise routine and I shouldn't have to fit into his.

I'm going to add crunches at the end of my routine and just do as much of my old routine as I can. Once I can do that again easily, I'll add on. Plus, I should be getting a mat in the mail this week so I can start doing crunches at home!

I'm a little worried about how PMS will play into this week. It usually makes me incredibly hungry, emotional and frustrated. I'm going to try and get through it the best I can and be gentle with myself. That's really all I can do.

This Saturday is my friend (or rather, my boyfriend's friend), Katy's engagement party. I hate to sound cynical about it, but I don't really feel a part of that group of friends. I mean, some of his friends definitely ARE my friends, but Craig and Katy are really more his friends. Sometimes, I even feel like they wonder why Ken is with me. But that's a rambling story for another day (or never).

Anyway, they are having this engagement party and I'm not super excited to go. I mean, a lot of the people there are already married or engaged, most of them work in tech or social media and I don't have anything in common with them. Whenever I tell them I'm studying to be a teacher it's all "Good for you!" or "Wow, I could NEVER do that." and then our conversation is over. I know I'm building it up to be a really negative experience and it will probably be fine.
I'm just feeling a little bitter in the romance department lately. And I have PMS, so back off! ;)

OK, I am starving!! Time for breakfast, a little homework, gym, more homework and then watching the taping of the Oscars on the treadmill!

    Congrats on your results this week! That's awesome!

    I get you on how it can be awkward sometimes at events where you don't really feel like a part of the group. Are there going to be any people there that you already are good friends with? Can you hang with them?
