November 26th, 2014 Weigh Day Edition

November 26th, 2014 Weigh Day Edition

I always text a support buddy before making the short trip across town to the doctors office on weigh day. I'm well aware of what the scale can do to our emotions. The support text is simply a precaution, just in case I need some grounded perspective. All of the weigh days in the last 31 weeks have been incredible. I've been waiting on the natural slow down to start and it may have started with this one. I'm thrilled with the number, don't get me wrong, I'm just saying the days of 9 and 11 pound losses might be behind me. It's normal, less to lose=losing slower.

This number represents a 5 pound loss over the last three weeks and it brings the total to 110 pounds in the previous 31 weeks!!

I decided today would be my rest day. I'll be doing a Thanksgiving Day 5K tomorrow.

I took some time to visit over dinner this evening with a former colleague and friend who's in town for the holiday. He mentioned the Woody Allen movie Zelig and how it was a good representation of his life--so I found it on Netflix and decided to do something I rarely take the time to do: Sit down and enjoy a movie from the comfort of my recliner. Bad idea. My recliner is comfy. I fell asleep and now it's after 2am and I'm trying my best not to wake up too much, so I can get back to sleep. I'll finish that movie sometime over this long weekend.

I have my Thanksgiving plan firmly in place. My list: No sugar. An extra 1,000 calories if needed. Chewing gum while cooking. A good 5K brisk walk is a must! Logging everything in MFP and maintaining my photo/calorie tweets throughout the day. If I do this list--I will feel great about Thanksgiving.

I will remember: The most important part of Thanksgiving isn't the food, it's the family. It's about giving thanks for our many blessings. I'm very grateful!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you & your Sean. I've totally taken a page from your book. I got up this morning and did a good 5K in the park first thing before the day got busy! That will help keep me mindful today. I am grateful I can get out and do a 5K. Not that long ago, I couldn't do that! :-)

  4. Happy Thanksgiving! My recliner sofa puts me to sleep almost everyday! But I get to bed and I'm wide awake. I've meant to mention I've started sleeping with a sleep mask (over my eyes) under my cpap mask. I sleep sooo much better....That pizza! What crust? gotta make it.

    1. Yeah--the recliner is magic in an evil way, I'm pretty sure. It can render me unconscious within minutes! I can count on one hand how many times I've relaxed in it in the last year. That's why I decided, since I didn't have to be up early, I would relax and simply watch a movie in my big comfy recliner...then, zzzzzzzzz...
      The sleep mask--not a bad idea at all!
      The crust is a gluten free wrap I found at Aldi. It's very thin--still 110 calories, but makes a really tasty thin and crispy crust. I tweeted a picture of the package a few days ago, I'm pretty sure...you might go back and look. They're worth checking out if you have an Aldi where you live.
