These last few days have been rough. I’ve completely been falling off and doing horribly. Not eating the things I should, and definitely not exercising. I have developed a horrible sore throat and slept most of the day, and that is part of the reason I didn’t exercise today, but that’s still no excuse to be eating the way I am.

I don’t know what is wrong with me. I don’t know why I insist on hurting all the work that I had accomplished in just two days. Hopefully tomorrow will be better, and by Sunday I won’t have completely ruined all the work I had been doing, especially at the beginning of the week.

In better news, I had to stop by RiteAid to pick up some throat lozenges and ended up picking up these:

Not only are they the most amazing lozenges I have ever tasted, they are organic and portions of the sale go to the research and protection of bees. Awesome.  I don’t mind wasting away calories on these. They had a lemon honey version as well. I was with Heather, and we ended up going to Petsmart as well so that she could pick up some rat food. While there I found two absolutely adorable kittens that I wanted to adopt. They were two orange and white long hair boys. 9 weeks old. I was so in love with them I failed to get a picture. Sadly, it will probably be the last time I saw them. I went to pick up information about the rescue they were from, and saw a form filled out by someone else wanting to adopt them. I wouldn’t be able to get them for at least another month or two if I were to adopt them. There will be others when the time is right…at least this other person was going to adopt them both.


Weigh-in #8 and #9: 21 Day Challenge

I have some sad news to share.

No weigh-in this week. I’m currently at Rebecca’s house. Due to a sudden death in the family, I am here taking care of all the fur babies. I’ve realized that I haven’t really updated in a while so you don’t know how big of an undertaking that is. Rebecca has two cats, and two dogs. She also is currently fostering five four week old kittens. They are ADORABLE, but they need to be bottle fed every four hours. They were dumped off in a bucket and a fisherman found them 😦 I love them, but the night is hard. It’s like I had a baby. And if you didn’t know, it takes me about an hour to two hours to fall asleep so I never really get to go back to sleep, or even nap inbetween feedings. They are old enough to begin to start weaning (and we’ve pretty much successfully litter trained them!) so it should be getting better. They are definitely more independant than when we got them last Tuesday.

So, nine animals to care for means no weigh-in. I could have brought my scale over, but I didn’t want to have to deal with that when I was bringinig over clothes/toiletries/food so I’m calling this week a bust, and will do a weigh-in next Sunday. The Sunday after that is the day I head to my summer stock really early in the morning, so I don’t think I’ll weigh-in on that day. I really don’t think I’ll remember to do it at like 4 am in the morning. I’m still debating on whether I’m going to bring my scale. It’s one less thing I’ll have to pack and find a place for if I don’t bring it, although I won’t have the accountability of seeing the number every week. But, it could be cool to see how much I lose after 9 weeks of not stepping on the scale. We’ll see what I decide.

The last weigh-in I did was on the 16th (I really AM slacking on this blog, I’m sorry). It was at 300 lbs, which is maintain from the last week. It’s ok. I was kind of bad with my calories towards the end of the week, and my food wasn’t as good as it could have been. I know why it’s the weight it is, but it’s still a tiny bit disappointing.

I finished my last 21 Day Challenge around the 9th of this month and I realized I didn’t talk about it. I made a video about it:

I didn’t do so hot in the water department, but did do well in both the keeping track and cleaning categories. I guess 2 out of 3 isn’t bad, right? Since I love my lists and resolutions I decided to do another challenge. This one in addition to keeping 150 oz of water, I added exercising at least 2 days a week, and get up before 10 am. We’ll see how it goes.
