Weekly Weight: 212.6 lbs

I know it isn’t much of a loss this week, in fact it is a completely negligible loss. But I am not worried. For the most part I stayed on track this week. I watched my intake and exercise. I may have over done it with the exercise a bit. But here is the thing.

The winds have really stirred up my babydolls allergies and he came home and asked if we could just order pizza. Since I hadn’t started dinner (and he looked a bit on the morose side) I agreed so last night was a much heavier meal than I planned.

It generally takes me at least twenty four hours to recover from something as heavy as pizza. Yet today, I still didn’t show a weight gain. One night off track won’t kill my diet. It means that I will have to watch my intake over the weekend (Saturday is usually the day where I don’t bother counting calories as a break to myself). So even though I didn’t lose as much as I would have hoped I would, I am not terribly upset.

I tend to only rally get upset if i don’t know the reason something has happened. I hate when i work out and watch what I eat and still the scale seems intent on staying the same. with this I know exactly what happened and how to recover from it so I am fine with it.

I can work with logic. It’s just when things get wobbly that my brain starts to freak out and goes in circles trying to figure out why things aren’t going the way I want.

And I have to say…That pizza was really good.

It is salad tonight for dinner, but it was worth it.

Weekly Weight: Measurements week 1 of 6

If you remember last week’s post I decided to spend the next six weeks taking measurements instead of stepping on the scale for the weekly weigh in.  It is my way of not sabotaging the new fitness plan.  I knew that as I had to shuffle the schedule around if I didn’t see the weight coming off as fast as I wanted then I would start to drift away from the plan and not give it a true chance.  So I am taking measurements.

You know, I have to say I like taking measurements rather than stepping on the scale every Friday morning.  It is surprisingly a lot less stressful.  I think it is because with the measurements I have no idea what to expect. 

This week my bust and hip measurements went down but the waist stayed the same.  So it is progress and quite frankly more progress than I thought I would see after one week. 

This week was interesting.  We had a lot of rain which cut into my walking time, but I did manage to get to the gym and do my scheduled workouts.  I actually feel really good about making those workouts this week. This week was not exactly smooth sailing but I stuck to my workout schedule and managed to get that time in.   It was a good reminder that I needed to actually treat my workout time as something serious and not something that can just be shuffled to the side. 

I think that because it is something that I am doing just for me, I tend to feel a little selfish when I take time out of the workday to go to the gym.  I know it isn’t rational, but there it is. I think part of the reason that I was able to convince myself to maintain the schedule is because I do have a six week plan in motion.  Knowing that I have exactly six weeks before a final evaluation makes it feel more like a commitment.  And so far so good. 

The Stats:

Starting Measurements (last week): Bust: 49.5 “, Waist: 47”, Hips: 49”

Week 1: Bust: 48”, Waist: 47”, Hips: 48.5”

So the first week’s measurements are down and thus far things are looking good.  I don’t know what to expect with inches lost so there are no expectations to meet.  The numbers are less so I am happy that something is going on.  Hopefully at the end of six weeks that will mean at least some weight loss. At the moment, I have high hopes.

The Daily: January 14th, 2021

Good afternoon my darlings I hope your day today has been absolutely fabulous. This morning I woke up with a sore neck and shoulder and a slight headache (mostly from the sore neck) So I skipped my morning workout.

Oddly, enough my babydoll also woke up a bit stiff. we were both mystified, but went about our days. About an hour ago he texted me from the office.

‘I think it might be the pillows.’

After some thought I realized it has been quite some time since we replaced our pillows and looking at them now, I realize they are a great deal flatter than they were when we purchased them. I think we may have found the culprit. I may have unnecessarily blamed certain workouts for my sore neck muscles. The pillows need to be replaced anyway so we will replace them and see if the problem is solved. Fingers crossed that the solution is found.

So tonight there will be online pillow shopping. I suspect a new mattress is not far away either. we picked this one up when we were both at our heaviest and it has now has some indentations that don’t match us any more.

So that will be another fun discussion.

But we are going to start with the pillows and see where we end up.

My walk was a short one today again because of the cold. I know that makes me sound a bit wimpy but it isn’t exactly the cold I mind. it is the damp cold I mind. The cold I have no problem walking in. I just bundle up really well and I’m off. Right now we have high humidity and low temps. It means that we get pretty silver white frosting on everything each morning, but it also means that after about five minutes breathing outside my lungs inform me that they would prefer i return to the house. They have never liked the cold damp. It is days like this that I really miss the gym.

But with my stiff neck, I probably wouldn’t have gone to the gym today had that been an option. So a little icy hot on my neck and it is back to work for me. Then tonight we order pillows and talk about a new mattress. perhaps I will add some decorative pillow cases as well. I was poking around on Boldloft and they have some really cute ones for valentines day. I always like to do a little something for the house on valentines day. It isn’t the full on holiday decorations, but just a little something. And the pillow cases are absolutely adorable.

Of course so are the glasses. and mugs. This is the glass set I have been eyeing a while. It is adorable and perfect for Valentine’s day. Many of their items are marked down at the moment so it isn’t a bad time to place an order.

Maybe when I order pillows I’ll order pillow cases as well as part of a bed refresh moment. Not sure i can justify the glasses as anything other than an early valentines. Luckily, my babydoll loves Valentines day. Okay, mostly he loves the fact that he can buy big boxes of chocolate and people smile sweetly at him instead of judging him.

I should point out that I only get one or two pieces of the chocolate. He is our household chocolate fiend. But me ordering glasses will remind him that Valentines day aka the chocolate extravaganza approaches, making him happy as we start researching new mattresses. New mattresses, while a necessity every now and again, don’t make him as happy as chocolate.

But such is life.

And now i will get back to it. I will see you bright and early tomorrow for the weekly weigh in. I’m hoping I have started to lose some of the holiday weight.
