Damn, Daamn, Daaamn (...remember that Good Times episode)!

Damn, Daamn, Daaamn, described my sentiments exactly at yesterday's weigh in. Well, first let me preface by saying (or writing) I experienced a loss of 1.4, but that's not the point. Once again, ONDERLAND still evades me! Curses, foiled AGAIN! Last week I lost .6 and weighed in at 201.4. So do the math...this week I lost 1.4 and weighed in at 200 ON THE DOT! I wanted to drop kick the scale through the window. I hear you saying, "BUT IT'S A LOSS! YOU LOST!" I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know I lost, but my small goal this week....weigh in under 200 pounds.

This week, GAME ON and I already purchased a one-way ticket to ONEDERLAND! O and you best believe that scale WILL show me what I want to see or it will be flying through the WW window followed by a few chairs. GAME ON! So what am going to do different to ensure success:
  • Last week I stopped eating grains (pasta, bread, etc.) with dinner. So, I plan to continue eating protein and veggies for dinner.
  • Up water consumption. I drink the required amounts of water daily. So, I plan to add an additional 2 cups each day. As an example, Sunday drink 10-8oz. glasses, Monday 12-8oz. glasses, Tuesday 14-8oz glasses, etc.
  • Continue Couch to 5K (C25K) by repeating week 2 ON PAVEMENT 3 days this week. On off days, Biggest Loser (BL) Cardio Max and BL Power Sculpt.
Off Topic
So yesterday I re-realized TIMES ARE HARD! What made me come to that realization? A month and a half has lapsed since my last pedicure. Some people receive pedicures as weight loss rewards, not me. Pedicures for me represent bi-monthly me time (not anymore...recession). My pedicure spot rocks and the whole process takes around an hour to complete...yes for a pedicure. Most pedicure places operate on quantity vs. quality, not my spot.

So...yesterday I looked down at my toes, now closely resembling talons and decided things had gone to far.

In addition to the talons, my eyebrows resembled that of:

Yes, Bert from Sesame Street.

I am happy to report that Pro Vogue Nails took care of my talons and monobrow, and I can now rejoin society and roam freely with flip-flops on my feet.

O...since your here, check out Hater-Aid: #1 Drink of Haters.
