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.

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…
