Hello. Nothing new with me. Still trying to lose weight, obviously. I've been doing quite well, but I did indulge a little over the weekend with a few glasses of wine and a few skinny margaritas. Yum yum. I also had pizza. Has anyone had Mellow Mushroom before? Calories are like 400 per slice! I could not even believe that when I read it.

Still been doing a great job with exercise. Had a minor setback pulling my leg muscle during a run, so I'm going to hold off running this week until I'm 100% better. I have one week left of my Zombie 5k. I can't believe I have made it 7 weeks through a running program! First time I've done that... EVER! Anyway, I should sign off on a good note, not before I weigh myself haha

I did tons of cardio this week and kept track of my food like crazy. Not saying I are perfectly, but I definitely should have lost some weight.
When I got home from Chicago, my new scale was waiting for me. I was pretty anxious to try it out but knew I should wait til the morning. I drempt about it....
I stepped on the old scale for comparison to my weight from before and I was up 0.6 lbs!!! Whyyyyy??? 152.6
So frustrating, and so unfair. I mean, what's the point of cardio if nothing is going to change?
I stepped on the new scale and it read 150 exactly. Has my scale been wrong? Maybe the battery is getting old. I turned on the body fat etc calculator and it told me I have 25% body fat and 53% water. Is this good? I know it's in the acceptable range but am I too worried about my scale number? Ugh. I just want to see 140.

It's been a long time since I posted. I did really well on my exercising goals, and I'm keeping it up.
My New Years resolution is to become a personal trainer.... And I know that's kind of wild, but I've always enjoyed working out, and I feel like I need something other than taxes in my life. Even if I don't start working as a trainer, at least ill be certified and know that I could do it if I wanted.

So step 1 of this endeavor is to get into great shape. No one old want a fat trainer telling them what to do. It's my eating that needs to get under control. I'm starting by nixing alcohol until march 31st. Only exception will be my birthday. This is bound to make a difference. It's not like I plan to replace my nightly wine with some other high calorie drink.

Honestly, I'm afraid to weigh myself for fear of how high it is. Last time I weighed I was 152, and in the past my max was around 148. Obviously, 4 lbs is small, but its still the principle. How did I let it get so high?

I keep talking about planning and I need to do this and that etc. but instead of talking, I need to actually DO it. Take control of eating. Say no to meals out during the week with boyfriend. I've been in FL this week for work and Chicago next week, which means I could eat like a maniac because I'm "on vacation" or I could really buckle down since I won't have friends to tempt me.

Step 2 is to buy a new scale. One that tells me body composition and will help me improve in other ways than just weight. I ordered this on groupon and hopefully ill get it soon!
