I didn't eat nearly enough today till dinner...where I consumed around 1200 calories..
I had 2 cups of coffee prior and am sitting at 1440.
don't do that.
I don't know what happened.
I got up and it was go go go all day.
On the bright side I would never have done that in my bigger days.
Forget to eat...bwahaaaaaaaaaaa....
lol, not likely.
I did walk 2 miles.
bad walk...I went to my old stomping ground on post...got 1/3 of the way on my walk and looked up and it was fenced off and was torn up with equipment. I had to turn around and go back.
I weighed in this morning at 149.5
It's a half a pound loss.
But it doesn't upset me...I started 21 days ago (3 weeks) at 154.5.
That's 5 lbs in three weeks.
And if you know my recent past, I have been losing 3 lbs a month or so...so by any stretch this month has been stellar and it isn't even over yet.
two more weeks till September.
This whole Hundred day challenge gig is up on October 30th where I am planning on weighing in at 140 lbs.
Which would be a normal BMI for me.
only 9.5 lbs to go to hit that goal.
The goal after that is 132.
I am planning on ferreting out my maintenance calories starting on November 1rst.
I expect it to take anywhere from 4-6 months to hit final goal (132 lbs) once I hit 140.
I will be continuing the exercise but Saturdays will be my high calorie day.
I have had this plan for a while. I want to settle into my goal weight.
I want to have a plan that works for the rest of my life...that isn't a constant struggle.
I think I will be lucky there, because for the most part...this journey hasn't been. It's been interesting and tough...but not a constant struggle.
I swear, I can't remember how I felt fat anymore.
I don't remember how I felt...fat.
I don't remember how I moved.
NOne of it.
I go back and read and It's like I am a completely different person.
I don't even think the same way anymore.
I have reprogrammed nearly every aspect of my life.
I am (or have been), becoming who I want to be...
I have been allowing some of my old hobbies back in.
The first hobby is Reading.
The thing is...I don't like reading the same things as before.
I used to love romance novels.
I can't get through one to save my life these days.
I do like the wrinkle in time series so far.
I just read the second one...the wind in the door.
I think I will go on and read the third one.
I am tired..it was a looooong day.
I had to buy school supplies for my oldest.
I had to buy one of those handy dandy graphing calculators.
My daughter and I spent upwards of 10 minutes attempting to find the off button.
Then this digital clock came up and said 10 minutes to 'automatic power down'.
I also went to micheal's and bought some of my own oil pastels which I want to try out soon.
I really like the medium....I loved colored pencil but I just couldn't get my thoughts down fast enough with the colored pencil.
You can do great sweeps of color with these and blend as well.
I got 36 very cheap...just 11 dollars.
After I work on my blending techniques and some color theory and perspective drawing I am going to invest in some thinner and experiment with the oil pastels.
Well, tomorrow it's back to the gym to pound out another week.
I want to be down to 148.5 by next Sunday.
Have a great night guys.
