Weekly Weight Loss Post

I'm going to start posting every Friday or Saturday again about my weight loss efforts and progress (or lack thereof).  I've had a terrible time so far this year getting anything going, losing 2, 3, 4 pounds and instantly regaining them, over and over and over.  But I made a fresh start on Monday the 28th and I have had a great week so far.  I weighed on Monday, re-weighed on Tuesday and was down 1.2 pounds already (probably just water).  Then I weighed again yesterday and was down another 1.2.  With just under 10 weeks until we leave for Hawaii, I'm hoping to lose 10.2 more pounds.

I've decided to restart C25K.  Not from the very beginning, but from week 5.  So on Monday I did week 5 day 1, plus I did the 30 Day Shred.  Wednesday I did week 5 day 2, Thursday I did the Shred and today I did the Shred plus C25K week 5 day 3.  If I stay on schedule this time, I will finally finish the darn thing on April 1.

Today will be challenging, as far as diet goes.  We're going to my great-nephew's birthday party up in Mount Vernon, then we have some time to kill before going to a gathering at a friend's place in Monroe (between here and MV but too far to come home first) so we might take the girls to Chuck E Cheese, since MV happens to have one and they've never been, as the closest one to us is about 45 minutes away.  So between the birthday party and the evening with friends, which will undoubtedly include lots of food and wine, it's going to be difficult to stay on track, but I'm pretty motivated right now since it's only day 6 so I think I'll do ok.  I will enjoy a small piece of cake with no ice cream, I'm bringing healthy snacks to tide me over in-between, and I will limit myself to one glass of wine and otherwise be conscious of portions and not snack too much on chips and/or whatever other snacks/hor d'oeuvres are offered at either event.
