Shrinking Jeans of Summer – The Shrinking Jeans of Thea

Oh my goodness, I went to post today and I realized I haven’t posted a weigh in in FOUR WEEKS!  That’s uncalled for!

A couple of those weeks were traveling and I didn’t even weigh in…mostly because I didn’t have access to a scale or computer. But seriously, if I had weighed in, it wouldn’t be pretty.

But that’s in the past! Because today, I weighed in at 157. Just got by by the skin of my teeth! I have now maintained my 153-157 weight range for 21 out of the past 29 weeks. WOOHOO!! I’m super proud of that!

Next week’s weigh in might be a little sketchy…my first triathlon (eek!) is on Sunday and my birthday is on Monday. I’m going to try to take it easy, but come on…it’s my birthday! And my first triathlon. There will be some celebratory indulging going on. Count on it.

When I up, down, touch the ground it puts me in the mood Up, down, touch the ground

in the mood {smacks lips} for food

Alrighty folks. We’ve reached crunch time. Somethings got to change. I’m back up this week, and I have no hormones to blame it on. I weighed in this morning at 158.8. That’s up. Quite a bit.

When I weight in at my monthly WW meeting tomorrow, I will have to pay. Again. For the 2nd month in a row.

My eating is out of control. Late night snacking. Desserts everyday. Sometimes candy, too. I’m feeling bleh. Bleh, bleh, bleh.

My exercise isn’t bad, but in no way am I exercising enough to make up for the eating that has been going around these parts.

I’m not sure what to do. I don’t really want to count points again, even though I know it works for me. I’ve considered doing some sort of “detox”. Sugar free? Fried foods free? Refined carbs free?

So MANY things I need to be free from.

So this week will be all about a little of self exploration and planning. But here are three things I will do this week…

  1. No food after 9pm.
  2. 100 oz of water a day.
  3. 1 sweet thing a day (instead of 3)

Last week was not pretty.  I stepped on the scale and there was a SIX in the number. A STINKIN’ SIX! Ugh. I took a deep breath and hoped knew it was a false gain because of those stupid ass hormones.

This week, I’m back down to 157. That puts me in range for 19/24 weeks.

I’m getting bored, though. I know this is going to sound like a sob story, but maintenance is tough. It’s like there’s nothing to work for. Your trying hard to stay the same. YIPPEE!!

So, I just need to get some mojo back. I’m not sure how. Hopefully it’ll come with the increased triathlon training. Hopefully.

Well, I’m up a pound this week and I’m a little bit confused by that. Not upset or disappointed, just confused.  Bordering on concerned, but I’m not quite there yet.

I’ve been working out more, and while I’ve indulged in a few things, I definitely don’t feel like I’ve been doing it enough to jump back on the seesaw of weight maintenance.

Do you retain more water when it’s hot outside? That’s what I feel like.  I feel like since the temperatures (and humidity) have jumped into the 90s, the weight has creeped back on.

Maybe that’s just an excuse. Who knows.

So, I will cut the indulgences out and I will get back down under 157 by next week.

Mark my words.

I am so, so excited about this challenge, you know? This is going to take me right through my triathlon training and land me right before my birthday.

Nothing says good training and Happy Birthday like eating right, um…right?

My goal for this challenge remains the same.  I want to maintain my healthy weight range of 153-157.  Since I weighed in this morning right at 157, that means I’m off to a good start! That puts at 18 out of 21 weeks maintenance for 2010!

Woo to the Hoo!

I’m also looking forward to the mini challenge.  I like mini. I have a short attention sp…
