First things first: I weighed in today at 146. Which, believe it or not, is actually down 5 pounds from last Wednesday. More on this later.*
|The graph does not show the inclines that I did... it was hard, I swear! ;)|
The weekly goal I set for myself is to count calories (and stay within the guidelines) at least 6 days this week. Friday, I have a bachelorette party, and I don't even want to pretend that I'm going to keep track of calories for that.
So that sums up Day 1 of the Summer Challenge goals. I took Eli to the beach today. We met my friend Andrea and her two kids there. The kids had a blast, but it was SUPER windy. We saw a woman walking on the beach in her BRA... and it wasn't even passable as a bikini top! It was purple LACE. I pretended to pose for Andrea so that she could inconspicuously take a picture of the woman in the background, lol.
Tonight I have to go try on bridesmaids dresses with my friend Sarah. I think I mentioned that I'm the matron of honor in her wedding this October. She lives in Arizona, and she's home for a couple of weeks for her wedding shower and bachelorette party, and to pick out dresses. I'm kind of dreading it. I have no clue what size dress I'll need. I'm guessing a 6, but who the hell knows what size I'll be in October?! Hopefully I'll be back into a 4, but I could very well be an 8 or a 10. I'm going to wait as long as possible to order the dress.
Speaking of dresses, I put on the size 4 dress that is hanging in my closet unworn and I was able to zip it again! I think it still looks too tight to wear in public, but I'm glad that I was able to zip it with ease. Maybe 5 more pounds and I can wear it. I'm dying to get back in the 130's. Vacation shot me into the 140's and I haven't seen the 130's since! I tried on all my jeans a couple of days ago and separated them into two piles--ones that fit and I can wear in public, and ones that don't (my "muffin top" jeans).
|On the left: muffin top jeans. On the right: jeans I can wear now. ALL are size 3/4, and ALL are different brands.|
Do any of you have specific goals for the summer? Do you find it harder to eat healthy and exercise in the summer or easier?
