Sorry about the hiatus guys. I had one gnarly case of strep throat that lasted for 10 days. (That's right, I said gnarly.) While I was sick I didn't follow my low-carb rules. Heck while I was sick I didn't even follow my personal hygiene rules. I mostly laid on the couch and moaned...a lot. And when I was hungry I ate whatever sounded good to me. So you can understand that I was a little apprehensive when I stepped back onto the scale this week. Then let out a huge sigh of relief when it said 207. Only 2 lbs up, I will totally take it. Thank you weight loss fairies for not blowing me up 8 lbs in addition to a horrible week of mucous and moaning.
So onward to better and less germy things! Please-oh-please. Kicked off my eating again yesterday and also started the weight lifting again. Instead of moving on to the next month I went back to week one and added heavier weights.
I've been reading a lot lately about goals and I usually tend to have vague, pie-in-the-sky goals. I want to be better about setting concrete goals that I can see and my husband can graph (he's mad about graphs, engineer you know). So I'm setting a new short term goal. I'm leaving for Arizona in exactly a month. In Arizona May is swimsuit season, unlike Utah which will still be yo-yoing back and forth between gorgeous days and blizzards. So I'm making a goal to be 195 when I leave for Az. That's 12 lbs or 3 lbs a week, which I know is on the high side. But here goes nothing.
All right, lurkers, I know you're out there. What's your short term goal? It doesn't have to be weight related, just throw it out there...in print for the world to see. Then go drink some water.
