Lazy Blogger

It looks like I’m sucking once again on blogging more frequently.  Not that I really have anything salient to offer multiple times throughout the week, but I’d still like to prattle on about battling a Boston Cream donut or how much I hate the gym on a more regular basis.

Quick update on the scale:  last week I lost two pounds (the 1.6 gain and a small chunk of extra) and this morning I lost another 1.8.  Finally got those 2 losses in a row that I’ve been stalking for what seemed like a decade (weight tracker says March 22 was the last time I had consecutive losses, so close enough).  Last week I was actually greedily hoping for more than 2, and then this past week’s loss seemed too good considering I went to a Chinese buffet and drank a decent amount of Sangria.  I guess shit evens out in the end.  I’d like to see a third straight loss this week, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself.  I’m going to Melting Pot for dinner on Friday for a friend’s bday so I’m going to have to not suck as much as usual the rest of the week if I want that to happen.

I’ve been sick-ish this past week which is annoying, though I’m semi-convinced that the constant coughing spasms I’ve been having burned a bunch of calories and helped contribute to my weight loss this week.  I bailed on kickboxing last night but I’m planning to hit up Zumba tonight.  I’m having one of those days where I can’t seem to shove enough food down my throat, so it should be a challenging day and I’m sure I’ll need the APs tonight.

I’m going to Boston for Memorial Day weekend and I would ideally love to be down another 2 pounds by then so maybe I can channel that into some motivation over the next few weeks.  If not, I’m pretty pleased with where I’m at right now and how much I’ve lost in the past few months.  I’d definitely still like to keep losing and get into my healthy weight range, but it’s a nice feeling to at least be in “this isn’t so bad” territory.  I’m about 25 pounds from 18-year old me weight.  I think that number will always be in the back of my head but the idea that I’m back within 25ish pounds of my freshmen year of college weight is still pretty satisfying in itself.

I just realized I haven't posted a picture of anything in forever and posts without pictures are kind of boring.  I'll try to add some soon to spice this bad boy up a little.
