I decided to join the Wednesday Weigh In with Ramblings of a Crazy Mom
Here are the things i'm supposed to do.
1. Pounds Lost : None. I don't seem to be losing weight, but i'm pretty sure i'm gaining muscle. Either that, or possibly an obese cartoon character such as Fat Albert himself has taken up residence in my hollow leg. I'm holding at 131 on my scale and 138.2 on the hospital one - wahhh and double waahh!!
2. Struggles : Wanting to eat all the time!! Wanting to stuff bites of misc things in my mouth - kids left overs, something some one dropped on the floor, whatever. At work there was this plate of cookies and I only ate one and then told the Ward Clerk to put them on her desk. This is quite contrary to the other me "Miss Belly Fat" who would be trying to con me into hiding some of the cookies off the plate for future hours in the shift!!
3. Something I Incorporated this week : I've been journaling food and writing down the days left to the open water long distance swim I've been training for. I'm hoping that as I see how quick the time is going by I'm motivated to exercise and eat less. I'm also drinking water like its.... well....water and trying to be more prayerful about what i am eating.
4. i will be praying for everybody. i was happy that today i swam the perimeter of the lake that i live by twice for the first time ever. to complete the swim in the allotted time period i have to keep working to increase my speed and endurance. the swim is about 3x the perimeter of the lake in distance. I diligently watched for leeches, imaginary water creatures and the lockness monster. i got some prescription goggles i am really excited about except that now i can see so good...that its a little unnerving.
