Whoa, Really? For Real?

I will admit to not having the best restraint this past week and indulging a bit. One thing I am grateful for is that I'm not a cake fan. You can bring in cakes, pies, jellied desserts and the like and really, I won't "bite" (pun intended). Not a huge, huge fan of chocolate (I'll eat it but only in small portions) and cookies the same thing. But with all the snacks and foods coming through work, its hard to resist all of it. And I made nuts and bolts the other night and I admit to being totally addicted to them but I wanted to bring some in to work and give some to the kid's teachers. I think the fact that *that* time of the month is on its way doesn't help with my willpower either.

And for the first time yesterday, I skipped my More Workouts challenge workout. My tummy hadn't been doing well for most of the day so I just didn't feel like working out after the kid's concert last night! (which was quite entertaining, I must say)

So with trepidation I stepped on the scale this morning totally expecting some kind of gain and imagine my surprise when there was a loss! And a loss of -1.1!! Total shocker but I'm really pleased so some of the guilt can go away now, thankyouverymuch!

At the start of the Shrinkaversary challenge I weighed 130.1 and I'm happy to be weiging 125.7 which is a difference of -4.4 pounds! Go Me!!

Sadly, I have not logged as many miles in the Globetrotting Challenge as when it started. Crappy weather here makes for walks outside non existent. My total mileage was almost 79 miles (I missed logging a mile in there the other day). I need to get back to the Y and on that treadmill. Its supposed to be only -11 tomorrow which is perfect Winnipeg weather but alas, there's a staff luncheon that I might have to go too.

Hugs congrats to everyone who participated!! You are all winners and all the "hookers" over at Shrinking Jeans are the best! You've inspired me, made me laugh and made me want to keep trying! Thanks so much and let's keep on movin'!

Great job on the loss! Especially with life and the holidays getting in the way. Ooh, and referring to your current DailyMile, I would *LOVE* to try Zumba sometime! A shame there's no class within an hour's drive of me!

And I agree, the Sisterhood is awesome!! I've made so many friends through that site -- they are the reason I am sane today!

Congratulations! Way to go, love that you thought you'd have a gain and actually lost.

Tobey, how tall are you? The loss you had at your weight is AWESOME! And I think you have great mileage. Keep up the good work.

Heather D said...

That is so AWESOME! 4.4 lbs for the entire challenge - you're a rockstar.

And also, a rockstar for avoiding cakes and sweets. They are my kryptonite!!

You did great during this challenge! That's a significant loss for someone of your size! Congrats!!!

*Lissa* said...

You did great!! 79 miles? You should be so proud!!

T said...

Thanks for all your kind words and congrats!

Mommy Mo - I am not quite 5 feet tall! (I like to commonly say 4 foot f**k all!)

Heather - I might be a rockstar for avoiding the sweets but place salty snacks in front of me and I'm down for the count!

Karena - Zumba is an awesome workout even if I have realized that I am so totally un-coordinated!

Hope said...

Great job on the miles - that's a lot! Congrats on the loss - it's a great feeling especially when you are thinking it might not happen!
