Week 6 Summary- One change from last week!
Tuesday, March 01, 2016
6 Weeks already?! Wow, that went fast! So, pretty much everything is the same from last week; still sick, weight and measurements haven't changed. However, I'm putting that in the win category, since I've been not wanting to eat, and when I have, it's been BAD (like, lots of Oreos bad)... and I haven't been able to exercise for a week and a half. I lost 1/2 of an inch in one area, but I gained 3/4 of an inch elsewhere. I'm actually really surprised that my belly stayed the same, as I'm on antibiotics and they make me bloat like crazy. So maybe I would have actually been down a little? Who knows!
I had to cancel 4 of my classes, this will be my first one back since two Fridays ago. I'm happy to be back, but afraid I'll start hacking everywhere since I start coughing out of nowhere even when I'm not breathing deeply. I know my students have missed having class, though! Especially last Tues and Weds, since I couldn't find subs to cover for me.
Oh, there was one definite positive change last week; I've been doing a jeans test each week. Six weeks ago I couldn't fit into my largest pair. A few weeks later, I was able to fit into them. Last week, they were a little bit big so I thought I'd go a size down from that. I fit in them, without a muffin top! They're a little snug, but I'll take it! So that's two sizes down in 6 weeks. That means I'm still on track to reaching my goal, but if it takes a bit longer than that it's fine. My husband and I just booked our vacation for the beginning of June, so I can push my goal date of April 19 back an extra 5 weeks. That will hopefully get me to my goal and then be able to maintain so I don't gain again before the trip! We'll be going to Maine, so it won't be super warm where I need to worry about a bathing suit, I just want to feel comfortable and not have to spend each day trying clothes on to see what fits.
