Did you enter my giveaway for a bag of Rockin’ Green detergent yet? There are daily entries available in the form of tweets & votes! Do it!
So this weekend has really effed up my schedule in more ways than one. But the combo of Monday being a holiday (thank you, Christopher Columbus for not actually discovering America but allowing all federal employees to have a holiday anyway!) & Greg being in the hospital resulting in me being off through Tuesday, my work-week has been sorta jacked up.
When Wednesday = Monday and Thursday = Tuesday, weight loss Thursday gets lost in the shuffle. So, apologies for my tardiness. But I will make up for it with some fun things.
First, I follow another blog that is co-written by 5 different women that are all trying to lose weight for different reasons. Yesterday (I think it was yesterday. It might have been the day before), one of them posted a link to this blog that has all kinds of encouraging and inspiring things to say about weight loss. You should read it if you are feeling down on yourself. Or if you are feeling like you have a good excuse to not lose weight. She will simultaneously make you feel like you can conquer the world and a tool-box for making up excuses. It’s amazing.
Second, a girl who I’ve known, well for forever (we used to ride the bus to school together & we made a video in our Spanish class that drove our teacher absolutely insane because of the Pauly Shore references), recently started a blog. She should be nominated for sainthood because she is a stay-at-home-mom to 3 young children that are 4, 2, & a few months (I think). She still manages to find the time in her day to exercise & eat right and she is an inspiration to me. I encouraged her to start a weekly post about weight loss and, guess what?! This week–she did one! Yay! If you have a few extra minutes, you should head over to her blog and give her a few words of encouragement!
Alright. Enough stalling.
I gained a pound. Boo hoo. Poor me.
But, I’m still down 19.1 pounds and considering all of the times I had to eat in the cafeteria this weekend, that’s not too bad.
Also, I’m going to have to start up with Jillian again because, as much as it kills me to say it, she actually gets results. My sister commented that my butt was starting to shrink again and I know it’s because I haven’t been getting yelled at to squat lower! More lunges! Do you want to fit into your jeans or not?! So, I’m giving in & letting Jillian steal 30 minutes of my day.
Finally, if anybody else that reads my blog is interested in doing some-sort of a weekly weigh-in/link-up thingy, please let me know! I want people to feel encouraged and included but you guys have to tell me if it is something that you or somebody you know would like to do (this means you Sara Jeffrey Borscherding).
