Walking Challenge and stuff

Filed Under Uncategorized | Leave a Comment

Yeah I totally neglect this blog, posting everything in my weight loss LJ. I’m not back-updating, just putting in the most recent numbers.

And I’m stiff hovering around 158-159. Grr. I weigh least when I get home instead of the mornings a lot, because I’ve been eating miso again and that stuff is loaded with salt (yummy salt!) as are the fish balls and tuna I have been eating with dinner lately, so that seems to contribute to a bit of water retention. I don’t pee as much in the mornings lol. Of course, Then I go walking, and I drink water with breakfast and after walking, and pee like a horse at work. Haha.

So yesterday when Steve said it was ok to make the walk a little longer, I took him seriously, lol. Added about 1 mile, after I calculated it on run.com

Wednesday 7.15.09 PM 4.3 miles around Lake Quannapowitt, etc

Thursday 7.16.09 AM 3 miles around Horn Pond etc

Total 80.45 /205

I did walk around the building at work, too, but it was all broken up. We had like, an almost-all-day party yesterday celebrating a landmark sales point, so we played some random game one of the VPs designed, Frisbee Golf. Me and my partner both TOTALLY SUCK at frisbee, so we got 56 points (on a 9 hole 35 par or something). Everyone else had 30’s, or maybe 40’s. We racked up a ton of penalties, lol.

And I ate WAY TOO MUCH. Like a cheseburger (not all the bun it sucked) like 6 ribs in yummy sauce, potato salad and a giant chocolate chip cookie. BAD LISA! I was only going to eat one bite of the cookie (it was all warm and melty in the sun!) and save the rest for Steve, but after doing the frisbee gold think I ate it all up 🙁

And I went to walmart, for other reasons, but tried on some pants. Same style, sizes 10 and 12. The 10’s I tried first and they were a bit snug, but being stretch, that means they’ll fit in a few hours. The 12’s fit. . . snug. Just like the 10’s. So I matched them up and they were THE SAME. So, am I a skinny 12 or a fat 10? Who knows? I didn’t buy any lol.
