Week 13, Day 7
Tomorrow’s Weigh-in! Ahhh! I actually don’t have the usual anxiety that I have the night before weigh-in, so hopefully that’s a good thing. As long as I lose what I gained last week, I’ll be fine with it. I mean, in an ideal world I would hit 25 tomorrow. In order to do that, I have to lose 5 pounds. I’m not really counting on that happening.
Stats for the week:
Activity Points Earned: 134
Activity/Flex points used: 0
Time Spent exercising: 695 minutes (I’m pretty sure I didn’t workout this much in all of 2011)
Amount of ice cream/frozen yogurt consumed: 8.5 servings (if I don’t lose this week, I have a feeling we know what’s to blame.)
Week 13, Day 6
Yesterday, I finally went into the pharmacy to get some drugs. My pharmacist suggested Allegra-D and it is AMAZING! It didn’t make me drowsy at all. It also didn’t make me feel the need to map out a zombie escape plan to my house, which embarrassingly (and–admit it–awesomely), has happened on Benadryl. Except for a few coughing fits, I was back to my old self yesterday. There was a moment in Jazzercise when I couldn’t stop coughing and then I couldn’t get my water cup (somehow, I lost the straw) open, so someone had to come and help me. I FINALLY got it open after, like, half the song. (What??? I’d like to see YOU try and open something with condensation when your hands are sweaty!) I have to admit, I’m kind of glad this is my penultimate tracking post. I think it’s definitely worked to get me back on track with, well, tracking and has also helped to get me posting regularly, but I don’t think I’ll keep up with it. Unless, of course, I need help again. ALSO, my extremely awesome and adorable and perfect-in-every-way niece is coming today and staying for the entire week. I think I would be crazy to spend my time blogging and not hanging out with her.
Today’s plan is to do a double in Jazzercise and possibly run. I might even discover the joy of running with a stroller. Riiiiight.
Week 13, Day 5
As I mentioned in my last post, I feel absolutely miserable today. I took some cough syrup and slept all day. I didn’t watch trashy bridal reality TV, but I DID happen to catch a few episodes of classic Batman on the Hub network. This was my favorite show when I was little. I think my babysitter taped every single episode of me. Sadly, Batgirl did not make an appearance. However, there were several times that I just thought, “If only Commissioner Gordon would’ve called Barbara, this mess would have only needed one episode to clean up.” Tomorrow, I will go into town (I just realized how hilarious it sounds when I say “go into town.” It makes me sound like I’m Pa Ingalls making the trek into town to get tin cans and peppermint sticks and lard for the winter, but really, it’s maybe a 7 minute drive to get into town. It takes less time to get from the country to town than it does for me to drive pretty much anywhere in Lincoln.) to get some more hardcore allergy medicine. Like, the stuff you make meth with. Okay. I’m going to stop now. I really shouldn’t blog when I’m on cold meds.
For some reason it wouldn’t scan the entire journal as one picture, so I kind of gave up.
I had to post yesterday’s tracking today because I got tired of waiting for the computer last night. SOMEONE in this house is very addicted to online Scrabble. And no, we haven’t entered the 21st century and have yet to get wireless internet so my laptop pretty much useless. Yesterday was good. I feel like it’s pretty obvious that I’m slightly addicted to ice cream. I know I said a few days ago that I don’t reward myself with food, but after spending a Saturday afternoon in WalMart, I felt like I deserved ice cream. Especially when I knew that it was well within my points for the day. That’s one of the nice things about WW. I feel like it prepares people for living in the “real world” better than any other plan. They teach you how to properly order at restaurants and allow for splurges every once in awhile. I don’t think I could be on one of those frozen meal plans. Eventually, it would get old. Right?
Also, I think what I called allergies is actually a full on cold. I’m absolutely miserable today. It may be a stay in my pajamas and watch all the trashy wedding-related reality shows on Bravo kind of day. Which is perfect since today is my scheduled rest day.
I didn’t get a chance to post last night because I was just sooo tired. (It might have also had something to do with mom playing computer games. 🙂 ) But, as promised, here’s my Thursday journal.
Week 13, Day 2
I woke up yesterday morning with HORRIBLE allergies. They were the kind that just made me want to lay on the couch with a box of Kleenex and the sixth season of Gilmore Girls. Still, I thought I needed to do something. Netflix has exercise DVD’s for online streaming, so I picked a 10 minute Yoga video. You would think this would be relatively easy. However, the lady kept telling me to close my mouth and breathe through my nose. Hello! I’m pretty sure if I did that I would pass out. Later on in the day I decided to try a run. My plan for the week was to run two miles on Thursday and do a double Jazzercise. Well, I knew that wouldn’t be happening, but I still thought I should try at least one mile. I started out running and eventually had to stop and just walk. Everyday, I do something new that affirms my belief that I’m a genius. Yesterday it was when I thought that running, while I have allergies, on a gravel road surrounded by bean and cornfields was a good idea. Then I went into town for my hair appointment with the lovely Emily P. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but The Emily’s are training to become Jazzercise instructors. Yeah! So, last night after my appointment I went to their practice and did the routines along with them. I can’t wait to actually take their classes!
Today, I’m planning on going into town (we got a bunch of rain last night, and I don’t think it would be very much fun to run on the gravel roads) and seeing if I can run the 5k course for A’Ror’N days. I can’t believe it’s in a week from tomorrow! Also, I’ve now been running for 9 weeks. How crazy is that? I was planning on Jazzercise this morning, but I woke up too late. I’ll probably go tonight, instead.
Also, most days they put a quote in my WW journal. Today it’s, “Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what my never happen. Keep in the sunlight.” by Benjamin Franklin. I like it!
