I seem, alas, to have reached another plateau - between 133 and 135 pounds. Although I was 133.8 on Wed., today I'm 134.4. I've noticed that my weight tends to tick up toward the weekend, and I'm my lightest mid-week, but I've been back on the treadmill and really working up a sweat, so this is a tad frustrating. Again, I can see how people want to just throw in the towel. But again, I shall continue to persevere, because I still have about six weeks to go in the challenge and especially because last year at this time, I weighed about 153. I would have swooned to see the scale hit 134.4. In fact, I haven't been this light in at least ten years.
So, onward and upward as I continue to walk and/or tread on the mill, and also find a place to display my lovely Royal Worcester china.
This week's step/treadmill tally:
June 5 - at least 10,000 steps (I didn't have a pedometer on because we were out of town, but I did a LOT of walking)
June 6 - between 5,000 and 10,000 steps - again, I didn't have a pedometer on (was at Bookcamp), but did a lot of walking afterward (in part because I got lost trying to meet my husband, because I'd written down the wrong address)
June 7 - 1 hr. on TM
June 8 - 50 min. on TM (had to get off as hubby had business call and the TM is in his office)
June 9 - 1 hr. on TM
June 10 - 15,128 steps (I suppose I should also mention the chocolate-dipped ice cream cone I had for dinner this day. As in, that was my dinner. I went for a long, long walk on a warm day...and maybe it's no surprise the weight loss is stuck?)
June 11 - 1 hr. on TM
I've had a really busy week, and even today, I have a to-do list that has 10 items on it. None of these is writing or writing-related, except this blog. Frankly, one of the wisest things I've ever done is to realize that for a period of about three months, I'd be busy with wedding/family stuff and plan accordingly, so that I could enjoy the wedding/family stuff without being stressed about deadlines.
