Weigh in for the first week put me down a little over 2 pounds. I'm ok with that...this week I got some lower numbers but I haven't eaten all that good this weekend at all!! I'm just not feeling it. Car was totalled on Friday...still now wheels...hopefully this week. Awaiting word on a loan so I can afford said wheels. I leave Saturday morning for my bike ride...I'm starting to get excited...I didn't ride as much as I'd hoped though yet somehow I feel more prepared....just trying to survive...

Was doing good, writing daily into a car accident on is totalled...I'm ok...wishing I'd died, but OK. The car was bought by my dad for me when I moved home to go to undergrad. It's a Civic...but it was fairly new and a 5 spd. He taught me how to drive stick...and when he died, my mom and I traded cars since she couldn't drive it...I felt like a piece of him was always with me....I want to fix it...but they're going to want to scrap husband wants me to buy it back from the insurance...which I will....but I'm hoping I can take it to a shop and get it fixed, instead of looking for a new car. My kitty hasn't been doing well either and I think he's not going to be with us much all in all...things are looking pretty grim here....I've done nothing but mope and sleep all weekend...I'm feeling pretty blue...hope everyone else is having a good Labor Day weekend.

The jist...

So here's the abbreviated version of yesterday's post....Tuesday - I ate like crap and commented on how it wasn't the greatest start to losing weight....thought I did bad yesterday but when I typed it all out, not too bad....stepped on the scale this morning...down 3 pounds....feeling overwhelmed by all of the things I want to do in anticipation of fall such as weed my gardens, turn some of my less than stellar soil and dump my potting mix into it and ebay/amazon/goodwill all of the clothing and other stuff laying around the house. We're looking to buy a house sometime in the next few months and I really want to have less my eating was so-so....we had a lunch in-service and I just had Boston Market for dinner...I haven't worked out this week...the rest has been nice. I'll be in the gym nearly every day starting next week so I'm really hoping to end the year a bit's it going?

Starting Anew

The damage - 249.2...up about 10 pounds from my lowest this year. I'm a bit disappointed that I wasn't able to maintain my loss and possibly add to that, but it is what it is and I need to move forward.
The plan - use Fitday to at least track my daily eating. I am doing my bike ride in less than 3 weeks so I'll be training hard for that. I'm going to start seeing my trainer 3x per week and I burn about 500-1000 calories with him...and I'm back to gymnastics full time starting next week so that's more activity.
I'm hoping that all of this will translate into some weight loss!!
