Friday Fess-Up, 16August13

Recap: On Monday morning of last week, after spending a glorious weekend in Kansas City dancing my hiney off to the sweet, sweet stylings of Brandon Flowers and his Killers (and also eating pizza and cheese fries and Sonic peanut butter milkshakes with whipped cream), I got on the scale and saw a number I haven't seen in three years. Obviously, that was NOT OKAY. I immediately texted my buddy Elizabeth and asked if she'd be my accountability buddy. Because she is a gracious, understanding, kind human being, she said she would, and over the course of the week, I texted her about every single thing I put in my mouth, including but not limited to:

Isn't she the best? Seriously, this is like Weight Watchers 101 right here, and she NAILED it.

After texting Elizabeth every ev.uh.ree.thing, I got on the scale at WW last Friday and was down 1.4lbs, according to the WW records, which was actually SIX POINT THREE POUNDS since that terrible Monday morning! Hooray for Elizabeth keeping me on track! (Also, I looked back in my Weight Record, and that was my first loss in the WW system since my birthday on May 24th. Good goddamn.)

Low point: On Tuesday night, I got a call from a co-worker with a sick kid, asking if I could work for her in the morning. I said yes, and then realized that that meant I wouldn't be able to make it to my yoga class on Wednesday morning, and also that my day was going to run straight through from 8 a.m. until about 8 p.m., from one meeting directly to the next all day long. I didn't get to bed early enough on Tuesday either, so in addition to Wednesday being super busy, I was tired and dragging, and I hadn't had enough time to plan my snacks around the hectic schedule, so I was hungry and craving bad things all day. NOT TO MENTION that I found out at, oh, 7:20 that morning that my mom was flying out for a year in Germany at 1:00 THAT AFTERNOON, so I was mopey about that all day too. HOWEVER, despite these challenges, I still stayed honest to Elizabeth and still stayed within my PointsPlus Target. It was really really effing hard, but I did it. So I guess that's my high point as well.

Activity PPV: This week, I earned 54 Activity PointsPlus Values; last week, I earned SIXTY-TWO! See, I TOLD you I danced my hiney off at the Killers concert! It also helped that I'd already run eight miles that morning.

Mileage: This week, so far I'm at 12 running miles and my 12-mile long run is tomorrow morning. Last week, I did a total of 26.82, but like I said here, I credited five of them towards this week to avoid overtraining. Honestly, it was kinda nice to take a little break from running this week and not feel guilty about it. I'm feeling very ready for my 12 tomorrow, and I tells ya, last week I was really dreading the 11 I had to do.

Weigh-in: As previously mentioned, last week, I was down a total of 6.3 from what the scale had so maliciously told me that Monday (of course it's the scale's fault, duh). This morning, I was only down 0.2 pounds from last week. I was hoping for better, but after the challenges that I faced on Wednesday (and Thursday was tough as well), I'm satisfied with being down at all. And of course, it's thanks to Elizabeth's support. I absolutely cannot tell you how instrumental she's been the past two weeks with keeping me honest and in control. Thank you, Elizabeth! Here, I got you a flower.

Oh, and I keep forgetting to mention: Amy picked up the Friday Fess-Up theme as well over at her blog, A&J - Lovin' Lincoln. Check it out, yo!
