Well this challenge is just what I needed. Down 3.2, whoo hoo! With 5 flexpoints remaining.
Next week I'm hoping for down 1.8 :)
I'm very proud of my diligence this week, but you know what I denied myself nothing. I just thought it out. So now I need to repeat it.
Thanks to Sarah for sharing your info on the knee thing, I'm hoping mine works it way out as well. I can stand on it with no issues so I think it's either a nerve or pulled muscle thing. Not much can be done about that other than rest and let it work itself out. I'll keep an eye on it and just nurse it for awhile. I can walk so it's all good.
Off topic a little...
Do you ever wonder if a friendship is getting a little toxic? I've been thinking about this for a few days. On Thursday I went to see my esthitician and one of friends goes to her as well and I actually found about this esthitician through this friend. Well the esthitician is telling me about how my friend really values my friendship and that she thinks very highly of me. I was bit surprised by that. This friend and I don't talk a lot, we've known each other for a long time, and we always can pick up where we left off no matter how much time has past.
Lately it seems this friend just likes to argue with me or say sort of condescending things. This morning at the meeting I was telling her that it seems like I'm doing a whole lot of tracking with the meeting challenge, the work challenge and my tracker. Then she says to me is this the same work challenge that you've all started over 6 times? It was just the way she said it, sort of judgemental. I said no this is a new challenge. This is the same friend who told me I should restart Weight Watchers and re-do my 10%. When I told her that I didn't want to do that, she kept mentioning it. Then I realized she was saying this because she was judging my progress. It's to the point now where I don't want to tell her things because I think she's going to criticize. I don't know, this is the same girl who once told me her degree was better than mine...I never thought it was a competition.
I dunno, it just makes me go "huh?". I'm sure she has issues with me as well, perhaps she believes I'm lazy. I know if anything were to go wrong, she'd be there in a heartbeat. It just makes me think was the esthitican making that "she thinks highly of you" up?
Back to weight loss...
My personal goal for the Spring challenge is to return to the gym 3 times this week. The lifestyle challenge is to drink 4oz of water before every meal and snack. The fitness challenge is 10 sit-ups 3x this week.
Here'a challenge to all you weight loss focused bloggers for this week. I challenge you to think positively of yourself. No negative self -talk. Are you game?
