I am planning on eventually doing all my updates through video so I can see the progress as I document it, but today will be a written post.
Really I am glad today will not be a video because I am not feeling 100 percent. There are several reasons for this, some of which I don’t feel like sharing. The others? The relationship with the boy is no more (or at least not what it was… I suppose we are still friends), the bank account is empty from the unexpected expense of a trip, and my weigh in was not a good one.
To sum it up, I feel alone, broke and fat. Good way to start out the new year, right? At least there is plenty of room for improvement! (Uh, anyone want to set me up, donate a dollar, or work out with me? Please?)
Don’t get worried about me. I know things are not really that bad. I just need a bit of time to wallow in all that is sad before I pick up the pieces and move along. Unfortunately the wallow time comes during a weigh in post and you get to read about it along with the weight loss progress update. Sorry for that. Lets get to the real reason for this post…
First weight loss update of 2009
Yesterday was my first weigh in at Weight Watchers for the new year…
+2 lbs. Yep, I gained 2 pounds while I was on my little vacation.
I love snowboarding and walking around in the snow for exercise. And I did exercise a lot during the 3 full days I was in Winter Park, Colorado. But it was not enough to counteract the terrible food I ate and the two full days I spent on a bus to travel from Memphis to Winter Park and back again. The junk food and two days of idleness caught up with me and helped me pack on some weight. Gaining weight is not hard for my body to do so it jumped on this special opportunity.
That sounds like a good excuse, but the last few weeks have been a steady climb up the scale. This is actually my highest weight in the last 4 years. Wow. I honestly can’t believe I have relapsed so far and allowed my weight to creep up so high. So much for weight loss blogging to keep me accountable. Maybe in the loooooooong run it will.
Goals for 2009
As it is the first of the year I have been thinking a lot about my goals for this new year. Not resolutions, just goals. Last year I set out a bunch of goals that I never met and although I don’t want to do the same thing this year, I do need to set some goals so I have something to work toward. Some of the goals from last year are going to make it on to this list along with some new ones I want to achieve this year.
- Run a 5k.
- Complete a triathlon.
- Improve my cooking skills.
- Move out.
- Reach 175 pounds.
