Weigh-In Friday!

So today is my day to weigh in and I am happy to report that I am down another 0.7lbs.  I feel as though I have worked really hard this week.  Maybe that's because my abs and arms are killing me after my workout yesterday.  :)  But seriously, I have stepped up to the plate, consumed at least 4 glasses of water a day, got my workouts in, and eaten healthy foods with good portions all week long.  I am really aiming to see a smaller number on Monday after this weekend as well.  

I am noticing this pattern of gain between Sat-Tues and then losing from Wed-Fri.  I am hoping to stop the fluctuation and get keep it going down.  I know there will be minor ups and downs but these have been fluctuations of quite a few pounds.  I suspect it's because I relax from my routine on the weekends, eat a little more then I do during the week.  Really though there is no excuse.  My body doesn't want or need more just because it's the weekend.  I know that, now I just need to pay attention to it and watch myself a little more. 

I got some pretty exciting news yesterday evening.  It seems that I have an interview on Monday for a small permanent teaching contract.  Getting this has the ability to really set my career in motion.  I am so overwhelmingly nervous, anxious and excited, that it's hard to describe.  I barely slept last night with thoughts rolling through my head.  So I am off touch up my portfolio, get an appointement to have my hair cut and try try try to relax a little.  Monday seems so far away from now, beside I have an entire weekend to enjoy before that interview.

Have a great day!



  1. Congratulations on the loss, Leah. That's fantastic! I find my weight can swing up or down 3-4 pounds every week, just depends on the day! I try to only let myself weigh in once a week now, but it's hard to stay off that scale. ;)
