Sleep Deprived Successful Weigh Day (And Goal)

Want to know how to make 4 hrs of sleep ok? Have a great weigh-in! I was down 4.6 pounds this morning, making my total 23! I feel like I earned every pound this week. For the past several weeks I have been working my butt off and not seeing much change on the scale. This weekend was no exception, I started re-doing my flowerbeds. My soreness has subsided quite a bit and I have been really trying to get more water in.

That brings me to my goal from last week. I succeeded and did not weigh one single time since last Monday! I'm not sure how I feel about it though, the jury is still out. I was very excited & surprised by the number this morning, but was plagued by the desire to have a visit with my scale all week. I even considered weighing while I was at my mom's (it wasn't MY scale), but I was detoured by the jeans I was wearing. I wonder if it is just the idea of being told NO or whether it really is that big of a deal. I am going to set another goal this week and see what sort of feelings I have about it.

This week I am going to try to make sure that I get in at LEAST six 8oz glasses of water a day. This does not include other beverages like coffee or such. In the past this would have been an easy goal, but lately no!

Now if we can just get the silly baby to sleep!


  1. Whoo Hoo for 23!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes to water!!! I got a neat cup with lid and straw that is 20 oz and between that and my 20 oz workout bottle, I get an easy 60+ oz a day.

    Keep us posted on the scale dilema. I love not weighing and then getting a nice number like you did this week. I also like to force myself to look at other ways I can tell I am eating right/loosing weight... my clothes fit different, my bra is too big now, ect.

    Keep up the GREAT work!
