So this week.. Yeah. I had every intention of hitting the gym and eating better and being MOTIVATED! Unfortunately, school started on Monday, and I'm taking a full course load in a 10 week period. That doesn't leave me with a lot of free time and going to the gym is out of the question until around 6pm... right when FH gets home and we start the dinner, bath, and prep for the next day routine.
Jose sent me a text on Tuesday and asked me if we could hold off on training til Thursday. I told him no problem, since my friend was in from out of town and spending the night. That gave me a little bit more time with her and her brand new baby girl (she was 16 days old when she came to visit - such a cutiepie!) Unfortunately, when Thursday rolled around, I forgot to inform Jose that I have classes at 10 every day except Friday... which meant that I couldn't make our regularly scheduled appointment. He never texted me back, and now that my iPhone is jacked up I can't call him to see what's going on. *sobs*
On the weight side of the issue... I've fluctuated between 190 and 195 this week, per the bathroom scale. The one at my mom's read 199 yesterday, but when I jumped on the one at home, it still said 195. I'm going to blame that one on mom's scale being digital which is supposedly less accurate).
I feel like it's getting ready to be Female Time again, which means being bloated and craving chocolate. I actually have a candy bowl filled with those delectable little "Fun Sized" candy bars (3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Snickers, and Butterfinger), but I've managed to mostly keep away from them. I have one or two (since they really are "bite sized") as I take Monkey to school, and then I forget about them for the rest of the day. I know it's not exactly good to have chocolate every day, but I'm going to go ahead and say that this chocolate consumption is for my sanity and for the protection of all the others around me (I tend to get cranky when it's Female Time).
So. I'm planning on attempting to go to the gym this weekend. My knees have been bothering me a LOT because it's been raining so bad lately (stupid arthritis!) and the thought of getting on the elliptical has me nearly in tears. But, if I want to continue dropping this weight and continue to have people tell me how great I look (cause let's face it - I need that praise to boost me up and keep me going), I have to get back on the horse... the elliptical, whatever, and push through the pain. Who knows? Maybe when I'm back down to 150 (40 more pounds to go!) my knees won't give me as many problems.
