You know what Wednesday is right? Weigh in day! Technically for Weight Watchers my tracking day is on Monday... but for my blog I weigh in on Wednesday.
So where am I you ask?
Starting weight January 9, 2012: 150 Pounds (Yikes!!!)
Last weeks weigh in: 139 Pounds (Woohoo!)
Current Weight: 139 Pounds
Total lost so far: 11 pounds
Woohoo! Happy to still be int he 130's! Haven't seen those numbers in ages!
Even steven this week. No change. But I'm not complaining because last Friday I weighed in at 138... so I know it's in there. I was sick over the weekend and didn't eat at all Saturday. Guess that was good since I cooked all day! Made me unable to snack all day! So Sunday I overdid it... right before weigh in of course. I know that's why I'm up.
I've been struggling with my weigh in day. I want it on Monday so I have all week to earn Activity points so I can spend my extra points on a weekend eat out and drinks with friends. That has been working but come Monday weigh in I'm weighing in on weekend weight and then it is always gone by Wednesday. Always a pound up Monday. I weigh everyday so it's easy to see the trend.
The end goal ends up the same as you can see in my tracker...
It’s always going down. But I fluctuate exactly the same every weekend and it drives me mad!
Anyway… as you can see… Down… down… down… Yay!
Made it to the gym everyday last week and so far this week. Yay! I still really enjoying the treadmill. Been at it for 3 months now and it’s just a part of my daily life now.
My treadmill update is this… I do one full hour at 3.5-3.7mph at an incline between 3 and 9.5 and then a 5 minute cool down. I have learned how to use the random button on the Treadmill to vary my work outs for me and that’s pretty cool.
I think it’s time to plop down the money and get one for home. The treadmill is the only thing I use at the gym right now. And until I hit my goal weight… that’s what I’m sticking to. I will worry about toning and upper body strength when I get to goal. I also think if I had one at home I would use it on Saturday and Sunday too. Days I currently take off walking because I don’t want to use the gas to get to the gym. And I am not an outside walker unless the weather is absolutely perfect with nothing to deter me. I’m just not, so no need to even consider it. So I think it’s time. :)
I’ll start perusing Craigslist and find me a deal. You didn’t think the Thrifty Queen was going to pay full price did you?
Ok… blogger issues.
If you have been trying to update your Blog roll that others see on the right of your blog… you probably have been unsuccessful. It’s broke. The save button isn’t saving. Blogger is aware it’s broke and has been for months.
I accidently deleted my blog list last week and have been desperately trying to restore it to no avail. I usually get 1 to add out of 100 tries. I’m highly annoyed at their lack of trying to fix this.
If you go to the forums this has been going on for months. Yet no fix. I would really like to feature all my blogging friends on my blog… and I don’t want anyone to think I’m leaving them out or deleted them on purpose. I didn’t. Maybe they will fix it if enough complain. I already did. Please do so as well.
I also updated my Ohio Craft Fairs and Shows Page.
Bad news ladies… Simple Goods Show is cancelled.
No more Simple Goods. I have no idea why. It’s just over.
Lots of other Ohio shows are still on though so check it out and mark your calendars.
If you know of a show I missed… let me know and I will add it!
I had my 1 month Eye appointment Monday. Not much new. Same ol' same ol' answers. He says the problems I'm having are due to the cells that they removed (you would need to watch the video to understand what I'm talking about) growing back and they aren't smooth so I just have to wait for them to flatten out. He will recheck at 2 and 3 month mark.
He did give me eye drops to shrink my pupils and not let so much light in so MAYBE I will be able to drive at night. The lights look huge and exploded to me. I can't drive because I can't see the road if there are lights. I have only driven once by myself at night and that was horrifying. I could not see at all. Scary! And I rode once but it was so blinding I stared down at my phone the whole ride. So I’m hoping the drops help.
The good part is I am still getting better everyday. I'm about 80% good vision, 20% bad vision. He says that will clear up in time. My refraction says I'm 20/30 now in both eyes but it doesn't take into account that while doing the exam the letters I was looking at were all double vision. :( So I am still healing... it just takes time with PRK (vs. lasik).
That’s all for today folks! And I’m sure that was enough.
Thrifty Thursday Pics tomorrow… and updated kitchen pics coming Friday! :) See you then!
Until next time…
