Rome Wasn’t Built In a Day – Week 5

Last night's weigh in was very discouraging.  I somehow managed to gain back 1.4 lbs.  I'm not sure how that happened.  Was it the half a shot of tequila Saturday night?  I think the culprit may be the fact that I didn't drink as much water as I should have.  Last night my rings were really tight.  I hope that's all it is.  I mean I ran Saturday morning and I was very careful about food choices at the barbecue.  What gives? 

Anyways, I'll be slamming the water today and every day going forward.  Last night I was getting ready to get on the elevator when I noticed a bunch of folks exiting through the staircase.  Don't ask me why I didn't think of that.  I'm only on the third floor but still –every little bit helps.

The 10 lbs mark may not be as in close of reach as I had hoped however, I've changed my goal reward.  Originally I said I would treat myself to some cosmetics but getting a new pair of running shoes just seems to be a better reward.  My knee has been sore since running on Saturday.  I was trying to remember when I purchased my current pair and I can't remember.  They may have been purchased back in Boston.  Have I mentioned that I've lived in Arizona for almost 9 years????  Yes, it's way beyond time!

So my goal for this week is to slam the water.


Here's today's breakfast.  It's a slice of Trader Joes low-fat french toast with sugar-free syrup and bananas.  I like this because I can keep the french toast in the freezer at work and then heat it up in the toaster oven.  Easy & yummy!
