How hard can it be to lose 7-8 pounds? Apparently pretty hard for me. So far I’ve only lost a couple of pounds at my biggest loser challenge at school. Others seem to be dropping 2-3 weekly. I know it’s because I don’t have a lot to lose, but STILL….
I’ve been exercising at least 4-5 times a week…still hard while maintaining my work and the girls’ sports schedules. I have been eating pretty well….watching my calorie intake, eating the right foods, and only indulging in 1 glass of wine a night. (Welllll…..except for last night out with the ladies where I had a super margarita and a glass of sangria…..) But a half a pound only came off this week. Blah.
Now, the hubby (aka Workout Nazi) says tonight has to be a killer workout since I didn’t lose my promised pound a week “goal”. Double blah. Only someone with the metabolism of a stoked furnace could be so blase’ about an hour plus workout after a day of dealing with 10-11 year olds. “Not looking forward to it” is the understatement of the year.
But, at least it’s a half pound in the right direction. I REALLY have to maintain my focus this week, because I have four young ladies in my classes that belong to the local Girl Scout troop. And it’s……COOKIE TIME! I sure know how to pick when to start dieting, don’t I? My youngest is sitting in the floor right now having a “snack” of Thin Mints and milk. I just drank a chocolate protein shake in prep of the proposed evening workout. Here’s hoping that will stave off those cookie cravings……yeah, right.
