biology is dumb – The Shrinking Jeans of Thea

Hey! Guess who didn’t check in last week!


I was way up because I’m a girl and “way up, bloated mess” happens every 28 days.

And maybe it was all the take out and pizza, too. Hm. Hard to tell.

Or maybe the lack of exercise. That could have been it, too.

Anyway, I am back down this week…1.8 pounds. Which doesn’t even put me in my healthy range, so that gives you an idea of exactly how much I gained.

But I will be back down in my range by the end of this weigh in. Oh yes, I will.

  1. As always, stay within the 153-157 pound range. Nope, but I did lose this week.
  2. Do something active every day. Even if it’s only dancing for 5 minutes. 3/7 days
  3. Limit myself to one sweet treat a day (Exception: Thanksgiving Day) CHECK!
  4. When I have a choice, skip the food with a wrapper. CHECK-ish!

So I’m up this week and out of my range.  No big deal.  There are few reasons…

  • Fudge on Mother’s Day
  • Doritos on Mother’s Day
  • The fact that I was born with 2 X chromosomes
  • Snacking after 9pm (stupid chromosomes)
  • No exercise

That being said, I’m doing well with my habits.  I’m holding strong with at least 2 yogurts a day and at least 3-4 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.  And I’m pretty sure if I added more sugar to my coffee I would die from the sweetness.  That one is definitely a habit!
