Today is Day 6 of my 21 Day Challenge and I am doing well. My goals were to weigh myself daily and to get the required number of steps everyday. So far so good!
Weight – 184
Steps – It’s only 6:15pm and I already have 9,274 of my 10,000.
I can’t believe the scale. I think that its lost its mind. Yesterday, I weighed in at 186. Two pounds overnight?! That has to be some kind of dream. Anywho, tomorrow is my official weigh-in day and if it reads 184 again, that’ll mean that I have lost 20 pounds! WHOO-HOO!
On a side note, I took my measurements last night and was amazed. I updated my “Measurements” page, but was astonished at my waist. When I was 204 pounds, my waist was 39 inches. At 184, my waist was 36 inches! Three inches?! How cool! I think that the waist is the easiest one to measure, as I always can tell where the smallest part is. I wonder if that is a normal decrease for 20 pounds…. hum…
I have tracked everything that I have eaten today:
- Granola Bar (140)
- Coffee (100)
- Slim Fast (180)
- Activia (140)
- 30 Goldfish (76)
- Veggie Soup (300)
- Protein Water (60)
- Slim Fast (200)
- Water additives (50)
So far, that’s 1246 calories. I decided to up my caloric intake to 1500, since I am afraid that my previous goal of 1268 was too low. I’ll probably have another snack a little bit later.
I got on the treadmill for 40 minutes today. It seemed like a lifetime! Yesterday, I had to get back on the treadmill after I got home (at 10pm) because I hadn’t gotten my steps. Afterwards, I couldn’t go to sleep! I made sure that I had enough “early” steps before going to work today. I don’t want to be up all night again!
I still haven’t smoked, though today was rougher than previous days. A few of my co-workers smoke and I see them outside. It makes me want to go visit, but I won’t. Its just too tempting. Email is safer. I’ve chewed the heck out of gum today. My only irritant is that I “pop” my gum and I drive myself nuts! I can’t imagine what my office mate thinks. She hasn’t said anything yet, but I’m sure that its coming. She’s one of the smokers, so I think she’s trying to put up with me for now.
Have a terrific evening. I can’t wait to see the scale tomorrow!
