The Final Decade
Today's weigh-in: 148.2lbs
down about 3.5lbs from last week.
oh shit!!! I am in the 140s....this is my final decade, my final frontier. how completely crazy is that?
This weekend brought another round of cleaning out the closet.....all those 12s I'd been holding onto had to go. Even the $800 suit. ouch. Even the 10s I bought a few weeks ago could go but then I'd have nothing to wear. My closet is definitely looking like Old Mother Hubbard's Cupboard right now. Naturally, I hit the mall this weekend for some big sales. I'm right between a size 6 & 8. All the 6s zip up & button but are a little too tight for comfort. I figure I'm not a fatty anymore, so why deal with too tight clothes?? At goal, I'll definitely be a size 6....and I'll enjoy it then!
Same old, same old here. I'm home for the next few weeks which means I can easily stick to my routine. I like my routine - its obviously working. I did swap out yoga for spin last week & LOVED it!!!! I remember I tried yoga back in early spring but I didn't feel strong enough. This time I felt strong. solid. balanced. physically capable. joyous!
None of the recipes from last week were really all that good. None of them are worth repeating or worthy enough to make it into our family rotation. I think this was my last chance for Cooking Light - their recipes never seem to tickle my taste buds. I've asked hubs to cancel that subscription & start up a regular one for Eating Well. I'll even put their cookbooks on my xmas list.
Here's the plan for this week:
Monday: Crock Pot pot roast - supposed snow again tonight in Denver so should hit the spot
Tuesday: Chili Rubbed Tilapia with Asparagus & Lemon
Wed & Thursday: customer meetings including dinners
Friday: Turkey taco meat in roasted acorn squash. yum!!!
Sunday: 1 hr spin & 1 hr chisel. plus 1 hour massage - does that count??
Monday: 1 hr kickbox & 1 hr chisel
Tuesday: 75 min yoga for strength & stability
Wed & Thursday: customer meetings
Friday: 1 hr yoga
