I Turned 35 Today

Which is proving a lot harder to deal with than 30.  I'm not sure why but there it is.  However, I have a had a very lovely and low-key day.  I worked out, ate well, played Mario Kart with my mother (hilarious!) and went to WW.  I am up 3lbs this week.  I have to say that I am pretty perplexed with this.  I worked out four days last week and both yesterday and today.  My eating has been on point and even though I had a rockin bowling bday party on Saturday I ate very little and didn't drink nearly as much as I thought.  So yeah, not really sure what is going on.

Maybe my body is trying to balance a few things out, maybe aunt flow is coming to town early, maybe Jupiter is aligned with Mars....I don't know.  What I DO know is that I am gonna keep on keepin on because I feel really good.  Working out and eating real whole foods is what my body likes....up 3lbs or not.

Most importantly I would like to thank my friends, family and you, dear readers, for making yet another year so very special and fun.  Mwuah!

I did it!  I actually did it.  I reached and went beyond my 10% weight loss goal.  At this Tuesday's weigh in I was down 6 lbs!!!  I am still in shock.  So with that 6 pounds I have officially lost 36 lbs, reached my 10% goal and, most important to me. I am below 300 lbs!  In fact I am at 296.6, my lowest weight (that I am aware of) since high school. 

This was just the kick I needed and one that I hope will stay with me for a very long time.  I've been thinking about HOW I lost 6lbs this week and I think I have figured out a few things:
  1. I had significantly smaller portions last week
  2. I worked out 4 days
  3. The gentle colon cleanse I have been doing has finally started to work
  4. I drank a lot of water and hot lemon water (to help kick out some of the sinus stuff I've had)
  5. Most importantly, I was finally tired of gaining and losing the same 5 lbs since January
I am still struggling with tracking but I'm getting there.  I don't want to jinx anything so I won't wax poetic about how different things are gonna be from now on or how I wont every slip again because, let's face it, this is a journey and there is nothing perfect or sure about a journey.  However that doesn't make it any less amazing or exciting to travel.

Let's See...

where were we?  Oh, that's right!  The last time I checked in here with my weight I was up (point eight).  So the week after that I was up 1.2 then down 1.4 then this past Tuesday's weigh in I was up again (point 6).  Can anyone say "self sabotage?"  Gee, I wonder who's afraid to go below 300?  THIS GIRL and I am still trying to figure out why.

I don't even know what to say.  I feel guilty, I feel I should apologize to everyone....even though I know that's silly but I do. 

I'm just gonna keep pluggin along, which is difficult with a raging sinus/allergy infection but I'm not giving up.  No matter what.
